Question on synsthesizing / crafting

Greetings all so I had a question on the sythensizing / crafting in pso2. Since I never did any in the closed beta. I was wondering what is it like. Is it similar to psu synthesizing / crafting? Or is it completely different. Does the color of the weapon change depending on what element is used when making a weapon? for example a katana synthesized with a fire element ends up having a red photon color?

The PSO2 weapon system doesn't change the color of the photon parts (IE: A green starter takt will still be green even if it has fire element.)

ahhh ok. what makes it so u get a red weapon? then

Weapon camos or find a weapon that looks red.

Yeah, there are "Red" versions of weapons. Currently need some for a blueprint or whatever its called.
