Crafting is an important factor contributing to your survival in ‘The Last of Us’. Unlike crafting equipment and melee weapons, upgrading firepower will require you to find a bench.
You can sit upon this bench and craft upgrades for your weapons. These workbenches, however, aren’t abundant so make sure that you use them whenever there is a chance.
And if you are asking yourself that where these benches can be found then the following guide will serve your purpose as it describes the location of each workbench in different chapters.
