Code Vein Crafting Materials Locations

Transforming is when you turn your weapon into an entirely different type by removing its initial effects and imbuing it with unique elemental properties such as fire or lightning.

You can’t upgrade or transform anything until you have the required crafting materials. These can be found all over the game and even dropped by enemies as loot.

Once you have the required amount for a specific upgrade, bring them to Rin Murasame. The full list of crafting materials and where to find them is below.
