How to increase your team bond level in Scarlet Nexus

Be a team player!

If you want to gain bonuses such as increased rates for assault and guardian visions in Scarlet Nexus, you will need to raise the team bond level.

To raise your team bond level, you will need to raise the individual bond levels of all your party members to the same bond level. Meaning all of your party members have to be at bond level 2 to raise the team bond level to level 2.

You can raise bond levels by either giving them gifts, completing bond episodes, and give them special gifts. If you want to get gifts, you can get them by either crafting them or buying them from the store, and this can also be really good if you manage to find one they really like.

But If you don't know what gifts someone likes and doesn't, simply check the right of your screen while in your inventory. On the right, you should see the icons of your party member, and a symbol will appear indicating if they like said item, as displayed below.

  • Highlighted = Like
  • Pink Small Heart = Love
  • Big Red Heart = Adore

However, if the item is grayed out or their icon is, it means they will not accept that item as a gift. The last method to raise bond levels is by completing bond episodes at the hideout that becomes unlocked after standby phase one. 

These episodes are by far the best way to raise bond levels, but you will need to check back the hideout every so often to see who has a bond level as you progress in the game. You will also get access to team bond episodes which are pretty much the same as the regular ones but increase the bond you have with a group of party members.

  1. I have the full team, and all of them are at least bond level 3 but the team bond level is still one, I’m going nuts trying to figure out how to increase it

    1. That’s really strange. I haven’t had a problem. Have you been replying to the Brain Messages to meet up with people, who are not on your team? That’s the only thing I can think of!
