Final Fantasy XV Cactuar location and spawn time

If you are playing Final Fantasy XV, you may have spotted by chance a peculiar cactus man running around in the desert on Chapter 1.

For those not familiar with this, it’s the return of a iconic enemy in Final Fantasy and now we have a heads-up on how to find the Cactuar location in Final Fantasy XV.

You’ll need to know that finding one is extremely rare and as far as we’re aware, it looks like there is a certain Cactuar spawn time in FFXV as well.


We can tell you that this should be between 4am to 8am in-game time and two locations you can find Cactuar in FFXV are north west of Hammerhead or North of Longwythe.

We have seen Cactuar with our own eyes and if you meet him at the start of the game, he will be level 15.


The battle is a tough one if you are only level 1 as he can put all kinds of status on your party. The rewards are great though, you’ll get up to 7,000 EXP per Cactuar battle and we can also confirm that the Cactuar drops an Oracle Ascension Coin as well – rare items that you need to save until the end of the game!

It’s well worth trying to find these Cactuars, so spend a little time searching for one. There’s reports from the community that a Cactuar can spawn every 15-minutes of in-game time between the times above, but we’re yet to verify this.

We also have intel that the Cactuar weakness in FFXV is Ice and Lightning magic,as well as guns and daggers so be sure to make use of them!
