Crafting is a vital part of The Evil Within 2, and as you make your way through the game, you’ll be crafting quite a few items along the way. You’ll also need to worry about upgrading your weapons, which will make them stronger. You can handle all of your crafting needs through the Workbench, and today we’ll go over all the additional information you need to know about how to craft in Evil Within 2, as well as how to upgrade weapons and make them more powerful.

How to Craft

Crafting in The Evil Within 2 is an important process that you’ll spend quite a bit of time doing. Because of this, it is important to get used to the crafting system and how you can craft different items likes Medical Syringes and Kits, as well things like Crossbow Bolts, and other ammunition for the weapons in your arsenal.

Now, as you move through the game, there are several items that you will want to keep an eye out for, that are very useful for crafting. One of these items is Gunpowder. This item is extremely important because it allows you to craft up all kinds of different ammunition, and you’ll be able to make all your ammo and crossbow bolts using it.

One of the main means of crafting in The Evil Within 2 is the Workbench. These items can be found and interacted within the game. Now, the Workbench isn’t the only way that you can craft things, however it is the cheapest way. You can craft items like ammunition and other things using the Field Crafting option. This will allow you to craft items on the go, making it easier to keep stocked up on ammunition and other items.

However, players should keep in mind that the requirements and crafting materials needed to make items is much greater when crafting them in the Field Crafting menu than if they were to use a Workbench.

How to Upgrade Weapons

Weapons in The Evil Within 2 are pretty underpowered when you first get them, and you’ll need to look into upgrading them as early as possible. To get started, we’d suggest getting your handgun upgraded first, as this will be one of your primary weapons in the game. On top of that, you can upgrade things like Firepower, Ammo Capacity, and your Reload Time and Fire Rate.

Upgrading weapons also takes place at the Workbench. Here you’ll have the option to upgrade all of your current weapons, which you’ll need to do if you wish to take down the stronger enemies in the game. For a while you’ll be able to upgrade your weapons with Weapon Parts, however, after upgrading them to a certain point, you’ll need to find High-Grade Weapon Parts, which will allow you to enhance your weapons even more.
