When you’re looking at the weapon, before you pick it up, you’ll see the upgrades that are attached to it in a glowing orange color. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they are parts that you don’t have, however.
If you hold Square/X, you will pick up the weapon with all the parts attached, but if you hold Circle/B, you will take the parts from the weapon, with them being added to your crafting options if they’re ones you have not already found during your time with Metro Exodus.
How to Install Weapon Parts
To install weapon parts you’ve found, you need to head to a crafting table. They can be found on the Aurora, in bases your squad has set up, and in many landmarks across the open levels. It cannot be done from the portable crafting backpack.
When you’re at a crafting table in Metro Exodus, you need to press R1/RB to scroll across to the weapons tab, then cycle between weapons with L2/ LT.
Any new weapons modifications will be shown by an orange icon with a exclamation mark. You can then cycle to the new weapon part and press X/A to install it.
