The Evil Within 2 Crafting

Your Workbench is responsible for crafting and can be used to fashion ammo for each and every weapon in your inventory. It can also create bolts for your Warden Crossbow, medical syringes, and kits from healing herbs that you have collected. Remember that all ammo except the Harpoon Bolt require Gunpowder so you should try to find as much gunpowder as you can while exploring.

The Evil Within 2 Weapons Upgrade

The weapons that you find in the game can be upgraded to fight other enemies later on, as the enemies in the game get progressively stronger through the later stages. You have the option to upgrade each weapon’s Firepower, Ammo Capacity, Fire Rate and Reload Time up to a certain amount of advanced and upgraded weapon parts. However, remember that you need high-grade weapon parts to unlock higher level enhancements.

Try to boost your handgun’s firepower. This way you will be able to kill enemies with just a couple of headshots. The critical 1 upgrade is also very beneficial for you so remember that. After this try to upgrade its Ammo Capacity, Reload Time and lastly the Fire Rate.

When you get the Sawed-Off Shotgun, boost its Firepower first. Then upgrade its fire rate as it will allow you to focus on multiple enemies at once and lastly its ammo capacity. The Sniper Rifle does not require a lot of weapon upgrades so you should try to upgrade your combat skills to decrease your weapon sway when using the scope.
