One of the many collectibles in Death Stranding is a Chiral Crystal. Here’s how you can get Chiral Crystal and what to do with them.
Chiral Crystal is one of the resources required for upgrading facilities, creating structures, and so on in Death Stranding. You’ll notice Chiral Crystals at the start of Death Stranding, but you won’t be able to pick them up because you don’t have the equipment to do so. You will be able to pick Chiral Crystals after completing the story mission “Collection: Chiral Crystals” in Episode 2 of the game.
This mission will provide you with the equipment needed to harvest Chiral Crystals. You must gather some Chiral Crystals and then recycle them to the Distribution Center, which is located west of the Capital Knot City. You may reclaim those Chiral Crystals by clicking “claim materials” at the terminal.
Chiral Crystals are utilized to enhance your equipment, buildings, and constructions, as well as to power the floating vehicle that resembles a hoverboard. Chiral Crystals are easily identified by their golden hue and the appearance of a hand emerging out of the earth.
You can look for Chiral Crystals with R1 and they can be located within a 100-meter radius. Chiral Crystals are most commonly seen during rain and in BT regions. A good farming place for the Chiral Crystals is the west of the craftsman in the central region since this place is full of BTs. You need to determine the quality of the crystal with its size. If it is larger, you will get more grams when you harvest them. Keep looking for crystals if you want to enhance your equipment since it is useful in the game.
