Trails of Cold Steel 4 Vantage Masters Guide: All Opponents and Rewards

Our Trails of Cold Steel 4 Vantage Masters guide lists every possible opponent and what you get for trouncing them.

Trails of Cold Steel 4 has Vantage Masters in abundance. There are more opponents, more cards, and more chances to earn highly useful items. Cold Steel 4 doesn’t have a special Master Quartz as a reward for defeating each opponent, but you do get to earn a lot of U-Material along the way. 

You burn through much more U-Material in Cold Steel 4 than previous titles, assuming you’re upgrading everyone’s weapons (which you should be doing) and creating unique recovery items. It’s worth taking a short break and duking it out on the card table.

Trails of Cold Steel 4 Vantage Masters

The first time you spot a potential VM opponent, they’ll have a card symbol over their heads. You may need to speak to them multiple times to get started, though.

After your first victory, you can request a new match by pressing “R2” near them, even though the card symbol is gone. You can also challenge opponents on a higher difficulty level.

If you've already missed some of the opponents on the list, you can check the Eryn Village general store on different days to buy the missed card rewards.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
