As you progress through Ghost of Tsushima, you’ll be able to upgrade your equipment. This will ensure that you’re never at a disadvantage when it comes to combat. Different types of weapons will provide you different benefits when upgraded. With the help of our Ghost of Tsushima guide, you’ll be able to learn everything you need to know about different upgrades and how to upgrade equipment in the game.


Ghost of Tsushima Upgrade Equipment

Upgrading requires not only materials but also finding vendors. You’ll be able to find them all around villages, temples, camps, etc. Moreover, different vendors specialize in different upgrades. Keeping this in mind, you’ll more than likely visit all of them during some point in the game.

After visiting a vendor, open up the Upgrade Menu and you’ll be shown total number of upgrade materials in your inventory and required materials to unlock an upgrade. In addition to this, you’ll also be shown the effects of an upgrade. It’s also important to note that each consecutive upgrade will cost you more, therefore, try to gather as many resources as you possibly can.
