Scarlet Nexus is an action RPG developed by Bandai Namco Studios and Tose, check out our best Scarlet Nexus Tips and Tricks below.
Check the Item Exchange before buying anything Whenever you enter a Standby Phase, always check the shopâ€™s Item Exchange section before buying anything. Usually, the shopâ€™s inventory gets updated every Standby Phase, and the items for sale can be obtained for free by exchanging the required items. Prioritize exchanging for weapons (and upgraded versions of your current weapons) and plug-ins.
Use the Wishlist feature to know when you have enough materials to exchanging You can add up to 10 items in your wishlist. The game will notify you once you have enough materials to complete the exchange for the item in your wishlist.
Use the Library to identify enemy drops The library contains all the necessary details about the Others you have slain so far. This is useful in identifying specific enemies and where you can find them. You can also see the materials they drop.
Donâ€™t be lazy during the Standby Phase! The Standby Phase is the resting period before you transition to the next story chapter. We recommend not breezing through the standby phase since there are several important things that you can do.
* Consider re-visiting recently-cleared areas to farm for EXP and materials.
* Always check the shop for new items for exchange or sale. Upgrade your partyâ€™s weapons, get newer plug-ins, and presents. Donâ€™t go crazy in stocking up on consumables too much especially if youâ€™re not a heavy user.
* Complete all available Bond Episodes. Donâ€™t forget to check your Brain Messages since some bond episodes can be triggered there.
* Visit your home city to accept any available quests/ side missions.
* Give gifts to your teammates in the hideout to increase their bonds.
Know which gifts can increase Bond faster Each character in the game has preferences. When selecting gifts for them, always look out for the heart icon. A small heart icon means that they like the gift while a larger, red heart means that the gift is their favorite (and will increase their Bond even faster).
Use the Archivist Often! The archivist serves as the gameâ€™s healing point, save point, and shop at the same time. Talking to the archivist fully restores the partyâ€™s health. The shop also shares the same inventory anywhere in that current chapter so thereâ€™s no fear of missing out on anything. Finally, the archivist is deployed in very convenient locations so you can explore without worries since youâ€™ll have a safe spot to regroup and recover.
You can fast-travel often The gameâ€™s maps are already revealed so you just need to manually find data points and resource readings. You can also switch between individual areas of a location by accessing the World Map, selecting the location youâ€™re in, and choosing the preferred area directly.
No need to report to quest-givers for completed quests Unlike other games that use a quest system, you donâ€™t need to report back to the NPC who gave you the quest. Once you have completed a quest, simply open your menu, go to the Story tab, then select the Quests tab. Highlight the completed quest then report it as completed. Youâ€™ll instantly get the reward(s).
