How to obtain Chiral crystals
All BTs will drop chiral crystals upon death. They can, however, be farmed in large quantities from defeating catchers. You can gather as many as 500 chiral crystals just by defeating the first catcher encountered in order no. 16 of the main story.
Catchers are most likely to appear when it is raining. After clearing order no. 27, you will be able to access the weather forecast feature at the Cuff Links terminal. This makes it easier to find areas where a downpour is expected.
Attacking catchers with hematic grenades is the best way to deal with catchers. If you run out of hematic grenades or blood bags when fighting catchers, you can wait for other players online to give you supplies. You can also help out other people when they are in a similar situation.
