How to Upgrade Weapons in Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village 8 (1)

Wondering how to upgrade your weapons in Resident Evil Village? Well wonder no more; here’s what you need to know.

To start out with in Resident Evil Village, you’ll have a very simple handgun. But don’t worry – it won’t be too long until you find more. And you can upgrade your weapons, too. But how?

The answer is Duke – the larger-than-life merchant that sets up camp outside Lady Dimitrescu’s castle (and inside the castle). Interact with Duke to visit ‘Duke’s Emporium’. From there you can buy and sell items, and you can also upgrade your weapons.


Click on the ‘Gunsmithy’ option inside Duke’s Emporium to view what upgrades are available for your gun. It’s not cheap, though, so make sure you have enough money (i.e. lei) to be able to purchase what you need.

You’ll also be able to buy gun parts from Duke’s shop, and you’ll occasionally find them out in the world, like hair triggers and high capacity magazines. When you find or purchase those, you’ll need to equip them from within your inventory. Upgrading from the Gunsmithy will happen automatically.
