Final Fantasy 7 Remake: How to Get the Materia Behind the Fan in Reactor 5

There's Materia tucked away behind one of the fans in Reactor 5. Here's how to get to it.

Materia is well worth searching for in Final Fantasy 7 Remake. It can add powerful buffs to your attacks, give you new spells and even unlock Summons. Often, Materia will be hidden in chests, or given to you by members of your party. Sometimes, it is hidden away behind locked doors, like the one behind the fan in Reactor 5. In this guide we'll show you how to get it, and also what type of Materia it is.

How to Get the Materia Behind the Fan in Reactor 5

To get the Materia behind the fan in Reactor 5 you will need to naturally play through the dungeon until you have switched off three heat lamps. There's a door you're trying to open by switching off heat lamps, and to the right of it a movable platform, next to the vending machine and rest area. Once there's enough power you can take the platform to a new area. In here, you will need to hit the panel by the door, which will start a timer. Your goal is to defeat the enemies in this room before time runs out, and then hit the panel on the opposite side of the room. This will open the door to the Materia behind the fan. There's plenty of secrets to find in this dungeon, so make sure you don't miss the Music Discs you can pick up.

What Type of Materia is it?

Once you've reached the area behind the fan in the Reactor 5 mission of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, you'll be able to pick up the nearby Materia as a reward. It's actually summoning Materia, for the Moogle and Chocobo Summon.
