With combat being such a main focus of the game, players in their early hours will soon be wondering how to change their handle or blade in Lies of P to craft a new weapon. When players are able to use the weapon assembly system in the game, they'll have access to creating what seems like an infinite number of possible combinations. 

So, let's get into everything to know about how to change a weapon handle and blade in Lies so you can start crafting new and unique weapon combinations. 

SPOILER WARNING: This guide may contain story spoilers, so be sure to proceed at your own risk to ensure details in the game remain a surprise.

You'll be able to change a handle or blade in Lies of P by either talking to Eugenie in Hotel Krat or using any Stargazer after you've beaten the Mad Donkey boss early in the game and received the Enigma Assembly Tool from Geppetto. 

Once you have done so, you just then need to use a Stargazer or speak to Eugenie and choose the "Assemble Weapons" option to start swapping out weapon handles and blades as you wish. 

Each handle and blade has its own look, stats and Fable Arts which make for its own interesting combination when combined with an opposite component different to its original weapon. So, be sure to experiment to determine which blade-and-handle combo works best for you to fit your playstyle in Lies of P.

A different way you can change your handle in Lies of P is by altering it, which is done by also talking to Eugenie to alter a handle's attributes to better fit those of your character if you so wish. For example, using a Motivity Crank or Technique Crank will boost a weapon handle's ranking in either attribute respectively. 

However, even though the "Alter Handle" option will be available to you when talking to Eugenie right away, you won't yet have the necessary cranks to use it. Once you unlock the additional Hotel Krat vendor, Pulcinella, done so after beating the game's third main boss the Kings Flame, Fuoco, you'll be able to buy as many Cranks as you wish - if you haven't already found some in various chests when exploring. 

That's all you need to know about how to change a handle and blade in Lies of P, fully explaining its weapon assembly system.
