If you do not complete Side Quest 22: Tomboy Bandit beforehand, Kyrie (who gives you the Corneo Vault Key) won't appear at the church!

1 Speak with the News Paper Reporter in the Sector 5 Slums Station Way.
2 Complete Odd Job: Tomboy Bandit and obtain the Corneo Vault Key.
3 The first stash location can be found by opening the locked gate in Steel Mountain of the Sector 5 Slums.

7 Continue through the Main Story of Chapter 14 to reach the sewers. The final locked gate will be near the end of the section. Right before fighting the Mischievous Shoat, there will be a locked gate in the Sewer System, but you won't be able to open it just yet.

After the battle ends, you will obtain the Emerald Tiara and other items.

If you take care of Side Quest 22: Tomboy Bandit in Chapter 14, Corneo's Secret Stash will be much smoother when you get to it.

How to Get to the Sewers


Like in Chapter 10 before it, the sewers are accessed in Chapter 14 through the trap door in Don Corneo's Mansion. To find the third locked gate in the formal disposal area in the sewers, you'll need to continue the story by going into Don Corneo's Mansion and talking to Leslie.

Don't worry – even after completing the section of this chapter in the sewers, you'll be able to come back to the surface to complete any Side Quests you missed, so you don't have to worry about finishing everything first before continuing the story.
