You may want to learn how to upgrade weapons in Steelrising, as it's extremely important to do so throughout the game do you can continue to remain a threat against the tireless automats under the control of the Clockwork Tyrant. Steelrising is a souls-like action RPG, so continuing to improve your power is key to surviving the game. There are many weapons to choose from, and due to the improvements they gain from upgrades, you can use the same ones throughout the whole game if you want to. So check out how to upgrade weapons in Steelrising and make them more powerful.

All the weapons in Steelrising can be upgraded up to five times, which will improve the damage, attack speed, and alchemical build-up. They will also scale up as you improve your stats, though this is based on the scaling grade each weapon has, so if you want to make the most of your weapons, you will need to upgrade them and level up your attributes that relate to the weapon's scaling. 

To upgrade your weapons you will need to head to a Vestal (which acts like a save point) or your horseless carriage which is used to zip you around the city. Here you can access the 'Upgrade' tab to level up your attributes, use Steelrising Module Keys, and upgrade your weapons. 

 

Every time you upgrade a weapon it will require resources, and the amount required increases with each level up. Check out what is required for each upgrade below:

Level Two

  • 1500 Anima Essence
  • Bronze Ingot

Level Three

  • 3000 Anima Essence
  • Two Bronze Ingots
  • Three Cast Iron

Level Four

  • 5000 Anima Essence
  • Three Bronze Ingots
  • Two Cast Iron
  • Bismuth Block

Level Five

  • 7500 Anima Essence
  • Three Bronze Ingots
  • Two Cast Iron
  • Two Bismuth Block
  • Orichalcum Ingot

Before you can go about upgrading your weapons, you will need to know how to get the necessary ingredients. All of them can be acquired from exploration, such as finding chests, or dead automats off the beaten path, but once they are unlocked you can also purchase them for Anima Essence in the boutique shop. Bismuth Blocks and Orichalcum Ingots are the hardest to find, as they are very rare. Bismuth Blocks are mostly found from unstable bosses, while Orichalcum Ingots are exclusively dropped after killing Titan bosses.

That's all for our rundown of how to upgrade weapons in Steelrising, and now you know how the upgrading process works, along with where to find the materials.
