Gustav is an NPC and Quest Giver in Code Vein. He is a revenant who is first encountered at the Dried-up Trenches Entrance of the Dried-up Trenches. He opposes the policies of Silva's rule and wishes to find evidence that points out the mistakes of the levy system, and Silva's policies. NPCs are individual characters that are encountered during the course of the game that may or may not provide benefits.

Gustav Quests

First Request: Evidence against Silva

Location: Dried-up Trenches Entrance - Dried-up Trenches

To obtain the first request, players must first complete and defeat the boss of the Dried-up Trenches location then revisit the Dried-up Trenches Entrance Mistle to find Gustav. Speak to him and he'll ask you to find evidence that points out the mistakes of Silva's policies. Start off by teleporting to the Parking Garage of the Ruined City Center then go up one level where you'll encounter a Stone-Crusher and a couple of Sword-wielding Lost. You'll find the item which is 1x Citizen's Opinion at the corner of the broken cars, once you have the item, head back to Gustav and give him the evidence - you'll be rewarded with 1x Loss Shard (L) for completing the first request.


Second Request: Find more Evidence

Location: Outlook Tower - Cathedral of the Sacred Blood

For the second request, you'll have to complete the Cathedral of the Sacred Blood location and Gustav's first request (if he doesn't give you the quest, leave the area then revisit it). Speak to him again at the Dried-up Trenches entrance and he'll ask you to find another item. Teleport to the Outlook Tower Mistle of the Cathedral of the Sacred Blood, the location of the second item is pretty much straightforward. From the mistle, go straight until you reach the end, then turn left, you'll find the item on the ground which is 1x Damage Report. Now, head back to Gustav and hand in the item, you'll be rewarded 1x Condensed Loss Shard (S)  for completing it.


Third Request: The Third Evidence

Location: Observatory Site - Ridge of Frozen Souls

Same as you did during the second request, leave the location first, revisit it, then speak to Gustav to obtain the third quest. The third item is found at the Ridge of Frozen Souls, so teleport to the Observatory Site Mistle and just run up a bit and check the corner at the right side where you'll find a Sword-wielding Lost sitting against the wall, you'll find the item next to the enemy which is 1x Project Evaluation. Once you've obtained the item, head back to Gustav at the entrance mistle of the Dried-up Trenches and hand in the item - you'll be rewarded with 1x Condensed Loss Shard (M) and 1x RV Mastery (116) for completing the third request.


Fourth Request: Retrieve the Documents

Location: Accumulator Ruins - Ashen Cavern

For the fourth request, you'll have to complete the Ashen Cavern location and the first three requests, you'll find him next to the Accumulator Ruins Mistle if you've completed all four requirements. Talk to him and he'll provide you with a task to retrieve a document from a Lost from the depths, as well as the Map: Arachnid Grotto. Once you have the map, teleport back to Home Base and speak to Davis to travel to the Depths: Arachnid Grotto. Once you arrive at the Depths, you'll notice that there's a red marker indicated on your map, simply follow it to find the enemy holding the document and kill it to obtain 1x Construction Record. After you've acquired the item, head back to the Accumulator Ruins Mistle at the Ashen Cavern and give the item to Gustav - he'll give you 1x Condensed Loss Shard (M) and 1x Pure Blood for completing his request.

      As others have said, you can do the first 3 requests in any order. This guide is also slightly wrong that you only get the RV Mastery after completely all 3 requests, not after handing in the third one.

        He didn't move for me until the last request. Were standing at dried up trenches. And then poof ashen cavern

          you can actually do 1st 2nd and 3rd in any order, and after you have done those you can do the 4th. Took me a while to realise I didn't do the 1st one :/

            ''Second Request: Find more Evidence'' & ''Third Request: The Third Evidence'' can be done one way or the other way around. This makes it look like the quest is bugged or Broken but it isn't, he just moves to the Ashen Cavern, so go on with ''Fourth Request: Retrieve the Documents'' ;)

              PSA: To save time, you can collect the first 3 items all at once after obtaining the first quest, allowing you to hand them all in together. You dont have to keep running back and forth. Afterwards, he will move to the Ashen Cavern location upon completing the first 3 quests, giving the final quest.

                So, I gave him the Project Evaluation before the damage report. He didn't move from the trenches but the quest works just fine. Once you give him all three items he moves to ashen so it works fine... i guess
