With Code Vein available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, it’s only natural that those looking for their slice of soulslike-inspired fare would dig deep into what the game has to offer. In addition to Code Vein’s Blood Codes and surprisingly solid story, there’s a trading system too. This allows you to exchange gifts or Valuables as the game calls them with NPCs for Trading Points.

As you set out from the Home Base in an attempt to uncover Code Vein’s mysteries, you’ll come across these Valuables ranging from brandy to retro games. You can trade these with the many NPCs that make their way to Home Base. Doing so nets you Trading Points that you can exchange for even better gear.

How to get Code Vein Valuables

As you keep playing, you’ll stumble upon a large number of these Valuables in addition to an item known as Old World Material. Simply exchange Old World Material with the merchant present next to the mistle you unlock after beating the first boss (Oliver) to get some of these Valuables. They are as follows:

  • Fragrant Tea
  • Local Pennant
  • Flower Seeds
  • Antique LP Record
  • Custom Gun Parts
  • Protein Powder
  • Chocolate Garlic Flakes
  • Blood Bead Candy

The rest of the Valuables are found by exploring.

What to get with Code Vein Trading Points: Chrome and weapons

Each NPC has a wealth of items to give you with the Trading Points you have. The most important things are the weapons and upgrade materials. They’re the same weapons as the character uses when they join you on missions. The upgrade materials are known as Chromes.

Chromes let you modify gear to use Blood Codes gained from specific characters more effectively. Certain Chromes can only be obtained by trading, making Trading Points crucial. These include the Hermes Chrome from Davis and the Atlas Chrome from Yakumo.
