Lies of P players can enhance their weapons using Handle Altering Materials. These materials, including Motivity, Technique, Advance, and Balance Cranks, play a pivotal role in boosting the attributes of your weapons, making them more formidable in combat. Some weapons can even scale up to an S rank with the help of these materials. Often, Dimensional Butterflies drop these precious items. Each weapon handle can be modified using Motivity, Technique, and Advance cranks. Additionally, Balance Cranks allow players to reset their handle’s properties, which can be especially handy when you want to change your weapon’s attributes.
