Bastion Upgrade Materials Guide

To upgrade the weapons the kid can utilize materials rescued during exploration, granted as prizes in the Proving Grounds, or bought from the Lost-and-Found. In Bastion, every weapon has 3 upgrade levels, with 2 alternatives for every level. Updating the Forge opens two extra levels for every weapon. Weapons that are completely redesigned leave a light purple molecule trail behind their shots.

All weapons with the exception of the Cael Hammer have this impact. Every time that you collect anĀ  upgraded material, you are awarded with 50 XP. We have already detailed weapons and upgrades in our Bastion Weapons guide, so we will only talk about weapons upgrade materials in this guide.

There are total 11 types of materials corresponding to all the weapons in Bastion – all these materials have their own distinct features. Below you will find everything you need to know about these materials.
