How to wake up dead businessmen in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

To wake up dead businessmen in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, you must find a way to make the big yellow box on the ceiling fall on them.

The switch to release the box and wake them up is at the main entrance to the warehouse. Stand at the front opening and look inside the warehouse at the ‘businessmen’ playing dead, then look to your right, you should see a switch here.

An arrow points to the switch that Cloud is holding as he looks at the yellow box suspended in the air in the background.

When prompted, press and hold Triangle to release the box. You can’t wake them up any other way, somehow they sleep while Cloud cuts them with his sword.

Once they’re awake, you’ll have to fight Beck’s Badasses and a Modded Sweeper to get your Protorelic back.

That is all for now! While you’re exploring the Grasslands, check out our pages showing you all the Grasslands Chocobo Stop locations to unlock more fast travel options and all the Grasslands Cache locations if you want to get some extra goodies.
