Builds for Code Vein are an arrangement of a characters' statistics and items that define a specific set of playstyle or highlight a certain natural strength of character. Builds are created by users and as such their performance is varied, and should not be taken as a requirement or objective of the game.

Tips for creating a build:

  • Understand the Combat mechanics, what each of the Stats do and how they affect your flexibility for Gifts.
  • Read through the Blood Codes and Gifts to find the ones you'll want to equip
  • Blood Codes and Blood Veils change your Stats and are therefore quite important
  • Weapons can have a big impact on your performance if you're not a caster
  • Mobility is a factor to consider too, which is determined by your Blood Code vs Weight.

      I want build that has good damage but can move around I don't like heavy weapons they’re too slow but one-handed swords don’t have good base damage I’m looking for strength and dexterity but without the need for buffs and large weapons I’m just lost, granted I might not fully understand how everything works but like I said I’m lost

      • Just wasted 2 hours making a new page for a new build, and right after pressing the "save" button, the page re-loaded and said there was maintenance being done and to load the page again later. Now the page doesn't exist. WTF

        • I do happen to have a caster build that actualy improves on the already existing dark mage from Extra life should I post it or just make a recommandation comment? In short of all thing I have no idea why your caster build does not make use of queenslayer cleansing light. As it happens cleansing light restore 75% of the hp lost on using Blood sacrifice and Supernatural Blood.

            For the blood code Scout my Strength stays at C+ when I try to follow the Adrenaline Rush build. Why is that? I have everything equipped as told from the guide.

              Important: Before defeating an important boss (you will know them after a few hours of gameplay). If you want to get their Code you need to collect all the vestiges first. I did 70% of the game and just realized this and can't complete my Dark Mage build.

              • I don't know if reviewers got preorder God water weapons but the one handed sword and great sword are good, any comparison thoughts or the oni vs zeihander?

                • That is good. I just invested alot of material toward this, but I'm already in a huge Dodge roll habit, so please make a build or even best weapons guide for one handed dexterity or stamina build
