Resident Evil 4 Remake: How To Fully Upgrade Weapons

In Resident Evil 4 Remastered, upgrading a gun means maximizing its stats. Every weapon in the game can be upgraded from level 1 to level 5, eventually unlocking the Exclusive Perk, which is a unique feature of that particular gun.

Like the original RE4, the remake handles weapon upgrades on the merchant site. Players must interact with mysterious vendors, travel to the Tune-Up section, and pay enough pesetas to upgrade weapons. However, a maxed-out gun also requires exclusive upgrades to reach its full potential.

How to Fully Upgrade Weapons in RE4 Remake

Weapons will only be maxed out if their primary stats (i.e. Firepower, Rate of Fire, Reload Speed, and Capacity) are at rank 5 and equipped with exclusive upgrades.

While pesetas are required to upgrade base stats, there are other ways to earn exclusive perks. Players can pay its price in pesetas, exchange spinels for golden tickets at merchants, or acquire them through in-game microtransactions.

Maximize your gun’s stats to unlock its exclusive perks

One way to fully upgrade a weapon is to invest in pesetas. Exclusive upgrades are unlocked by purchasing all Tune-Up offers at the merchant. Note, however, that this method is expensive, with most weapons costing around 400,000 pesetas or more.

Purchase exclusive upgrade coupons from merchants

The Exclusive Upgrade Ticket is a special pass that allows players to gain unique perks for firearms, regardless of their class. Tickets can be purchased in the trades section of the merchant for 30 spinels each.

Generally, players should purchase all other upgrades before they can gain access to unique perks. But exclusive upgrade tickets give them early access to this feature–though it doesn’t maximize other stats. (All it does is activate unique perks early.)

Purchase exclusive upgrades as paid add-ons

To do so, they must go to the game’s Add-Ons to purchase a single ticket for $2.99, or a pack of five for $9.99. (Currently, these microtransactions are the fastest way to fully upgrade any weapon.)

How much does it cost to fully upgrade a weapon
