When it comes to fending off various enemies in Vampyr, players must use different weapons depending on what resistances each enemy has. Some enemies will be resistant to blood-based vampiric attacks, which means you’ll need to rely on your melee weapons and guns during combat. As you progress through the game, it’s important to upgrade your weapons regularly to ensure they are up to snuff when needed.
How to Upgrade Weapons in Vampyr
Weapons are capable of being upgraded at least once in Vampyr. Weapon upgrades are done at any workbench, which is also where you can go to craft medicine treatments and serums. To find a workbench, simply visit any nearby hideout that you have unlocked and locate the desk with the hammer icon.
Start by interacting with the workbench. Select the weapon you wish to improve and press the Upgrade button to see what enhancements are available. This will open a new menu screen that displays the different upgrade levels available for that weapon, along with the resources required to upgrade it.
If you don’t have enough materials to upgrade a weapon, then you must either purchase the necessary materials from a merchant, find the ingredients while looting, or by salvaging junk items to obtain new resources.
To upgrade a weapon, select an available weapon level (one that is unlocked) and hold the upgrade button to complete the upgrade and consume the necessary resources. After you complete the upgrade, you will be given a choice as to what sort of effect or enhancement you’d like applied as part of the upgrade. Some upgrades offer increased damage, while others will enhance your blood abilities. Whatever effect you didn’t choose will still be available, but will require extra materials to unlock.
Make it a habit to regularly upgrade your favorite weapons in Vampyr so that you are always getting the most out of your weaponry during combat. As we mentioned before, some enemies will be resistant to certain types of combat, so enhancing your weapons is just as important as upgrading your skills and leveling up fast in Vampyr.
