A Plague Tale: Requiem – How to Upgrade Gear and Best Upgrade Choices
After learning about crafting in the 2nd chapter of the game, you’ll be given a tutorial on upgrading your weapons at the Workbench. The weapons are also upgraded with the resources you collect from the chests. The Slingshot and the crossbow weapons have three different upgrades and you need to upgrade each one by one in order to get the last upgrade.
Each upgrade requires a different number of resources and it can be upgraded on a workbench that can be found in every chapter in someplace. You need to interact with the workbench and you’ll get the menu of all upgrades that you can do on the workbench.
If you have upgraded the instruments and unlocked the second upgrade which is the Traveler Tool then you’ll be able to upgrade the equipment anywhere without using a workbench.
