The world of Rage 2 is one of the most chaotic and whacky sandboxes you’ll play this year. Whether you’re driving your ride across the barren wastelands in furious vehicle combat or blowing enemies away in frenzied shootouts, it’s an experience that barely slows down for a second. Suffice to say, you’ll be engaged in combat quite a bit of the time. Here’s how to upgrade weapons in Rage 2.
How to Upgrade Weapons in Rage 2
There are a few different collectibles in Rage 2 that you’ll be picking up throughout your adventure. While cash is used simply to purchase items from various vendors, and Nanotrites are used to improve abilities, Feltrite is used to upgrade weapons.
Feltrite is a collectible that you’ll pick up as floor loot primarily after killing enemies. There are also Feltrite canisters you can also be shot and exploded for Feltrite, which are typically scattered around Goon camps and blockades. You can also find Feltrite in pink-colored storage crates (along with cash and other goodies).
To actually upgrade your weapon, open up the menu by pressing the touchpad (PS4) or view button (Xbox One), and scroll across to ‘Weapons.’ You’ll then be able to cycle through the weapons that you have and press X/A to see the possible upgrades.
You’ll then be presented with the different levels for the weapon and how much Feltrite you need to upgrade to the next level. Most weapons have five different upgrade slots, which can only be unlocked once you’ve reached a certain level. You’ll see on the right what the upgrade does for the weapon.
There are also mods at each level, which are unlocked using Weapon Core Mods, and do things like increase reload speed.
For example, the Combat Shotgun’s Level 2 upgrade is increased power, but then you’ll have the option to either increase the reload speed or magazine capacity as a secondary bonus. In order to equip either of these (for any weapon), you will need to have a weapon core mod, which can be purchased from a vendor.
