This Resident Evil Village All Weapons and Upgrades guide of ours contains all the information about unlocking each weapon in RE 8 Village and the locations of the upgrade’s parts of all weapons.
Resident Evil Village Weapons and Upgrades Parts Locations
You will unlock various weapons in RE8 Village as you progress through the story. While some of the upgrades to these weapons must be found at different locations, some later upgrades can be purchased from the Duke.
Note that each time you upgrade a weapon fully at Duke’s, he will offer you a better weapon than the one you just fully upgraded. This proves to be a nice deal to just sell off the fully upgraded weapon and get a better one. You can then strive to upgrade the new handgun and eventually upgrade all of the guns one by one.
