Scarlet Nexus Phantom Art: How to Get the Best Weapons

Scarlet Nexus Phantom Art is the key to unlocking the game's best weapons. Here's how to get it.

Scarlet Nexus Phantom Art is a rare material you'll want to get your hands on as soon as it's available. Phantom Art lets you create a character's ultimate weapon, but it won't be available for a while.

You'll need to clear the game and, for some characters, complete a specific side quest to get the material. Our Scarlet Nexus Phantom Art guide walks you through how to get each weapon and what to do with it.

Phantom Art material is only available after you complete all of the game's phases, and you'll need a base weapon to work with as well. For everyone who isn't Kasane and Yuito, you need to clear a side quest before their Phantom Art is available.

Here's how to get each Scarlet Nexus ultimate weapon.

Character Phantom Art Base Weapon
Yuito  Clear the game  Douji Setsu Ami
Kasane  Clear the game  Mao Kai
Hanabi  Clear the game and the Important Mission side quest  Prometheus Torch Type 6
Shiden  Clear the game and the For the Exhibition side quest   Special Guard Stick Rikugo
Tsugumi  Clear the game and the Verifying the Secret side quest    Lily Bell M20-6
Arashi  Clear the game and the Enchanted by Weapons side quest     Innocent Rabbit Hug 6
Gemma  Clear the game and the No Interference! side quest      Gou Musou Land Type
Kyoka  Clear the game and the Want to Learn More side quest      Buronghorn 286
Luka  Clear the game and the For the Exhibition side quest    Weight Hammer V6
Kagero  Clear the game and the Help with a Report side quest    Invisible Dancer V6


Once you have the materials in hand, head to the shop robot and go to the Exchange tab. Upgrade the base weapon using the required materials.

You'll have to go through two upgrade phases, but only the second one requires the Phantom Art.

Once you have the materials in hand, just upgrade using Phantom Art, and you're good to go.

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.
