Code Vein Crafting Guide

In this Code Vein Crafting Guide, we will be explaining the Crafting mechanics of Code Vein in an easy-to-understand and comprehensive manner. You will learn everything about upgrading your weapons and gear with the right crafting materials. We will also be explaining how Blood Veil works in the game and how you can level that up.

Code Vein Crafting

Code Vein focuses a lot on crafting and upgradation of gear with different crafting materials and it can sometimes become a bit confusing that which material is used to upgrade what gear but that’s what we are here for. To upgrade any existing weapon or Blood Veil, you first need to have the required crafting materials and then talk to the merchant; Rin Murasame.

We’ll be showing you how to farm said materials, as well as relevant info on how you can use your adventure’s spoils to upgrade and transform your loot into something better.
