As you vie for your spot at the top of the food chain in Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt, you may have noticed the Octahedron collectibles scattered around Prague, but what are they, and how do they impact your VTM adventure?

It’s not just weapons and armor that lie nestled amid the bloodstained streets of Vampire The Masquerade’s battle royale, Bloodhunt; there are collectibles, too.

While you’ll spend the vast majority of your nighttime adventure stalking out your prey as one of the game‘s iconic clans, you may have noticed that amid the ground loot lurk Octahedrons, a collectible that has baffled most players.

With two different forms and two very different purposes, here’s a breakdown of what Octahedrons do in Bloodhunt and, in turn, why they’re worth collecting.

Octahedrons are relatively commonplace in Bloodhunt, but what exactly do they do?

What are Octahedrons in VTM Bloodhunt

Octahedrons effectively provide players with lore via the ‘Collectibles’ tab in ‘Journal’. They are split into two different types: Normal and Gold. Both look the same as ground loot (seen in the image above), and the difference will only be shown when you hover over them.

Normal Octahedrons are the most commonplace, and can be found randomly near piles of ash (your dead comrades) throughout Prague (denoted by a blue vapor when you activate ‘X’). These unlock items in the ‘Clues’ section of the Collectibles Journal tab.

Gold Octahedrons, by contrast, have set locations on the map. You can only collect one per match, and unlock in a set order (for example, Reign of Error part one, then part two). They are used to complete unlock different lore pieces in the ‘Stories’ and ‘Intel’ sections.

In short:

Octahedron Location Unlocks
Normal Random (normally by piles of ash denoted by blue vapor) Items in ‘Clues’ section
Gold Set Items in ‘Stories’ and ‘Intel’ sections
