The Surge 2 Crafting Recipes Guide – Craft and Upgrade Gear, Weapons, Implants

The Surge 2 Crafting Recipes Guide

In The Surge 2, you can craft new gear and upgrade your pre-existing gear, weapons, and implants. In order to start crafting/upgrading, you need to head over to a Medbay. Apart from this, you also need to have required crafting materials i.e. schematics to craft new gear and components to carry out upgrades. This Surge 2 Crafting Recipes Guide will cover everything you need to know about how crafting works in the game.

How Crafting And Recipes Work In Surge 2

Before we start, let’s talk about how you can farm crafting materials i.e. schematics and components in The Surge 2.

When it comes to farming schematics, not much has changed since the days of the original Surge. Once you’ve decided which schematic you need, all you need to do is to target that particular enemy limb and dismember it.

For example, if you need a Head Gear Schematic, you must perform a killing blow on an armored enemy’s head. The same is the case with other parts.

Coming to farming components, it’s identical to farming schematics. You simply need to target a specific limb and land a killing blow to get that component.

For instance, target an enemy’s arms to have a chance to get Arm Gear Coils component drop from that enemy. However, I should mention here that components have different tiers.

How to Craft and Upgrade Gear?

Once you’ve got the required schematic, you need to head over to a Medbay and open up the “Construct” menu. In this menu, you’ll be able to see a complete list of available schematics in your inventory and required amount of Tech Scrap as well as components that you need to craft a specific gear piece.

Here’s an example of how crafting gear works in The Surge 2.

  • Arms Gear: Tech Scrap + Arm Gear Coils x2
  • Body Gear: Tech Scrap + Body Gear Armature x2
  • Legs Gear: Tech Scrap + Leg Gear Pneumatics x2
  • Head Gear: Tech Scrap + Head Gear Processor x2

Upgrading gear pieces in The Surge 2 requires Tech Scrap and components. It goes without saying but upgrading to a higher level Mk. Level gear requires more Tech Scraps and a higher level Mk. components.

Upgrading a piece of gear won’t only bolster its defense and stats but will also keep it at the same Core Power consumption, allowing you to wield better gear at no additional Core Power cost.

How to Upgrade Weapons and Implants?

Weapons, unlike Armor, can’t be crafted but can be upgraded to increase its damage output. This should allow you to stick to your favorite weapon for the entirety of the game by constantly upgrading it. To upgrade your weapons, you need to make sure that you’ve required components and Tech Scrap:

  • Mk. Level I: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.I x3
  • Mk. Level II: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.II x3
  • Mk. Level III: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.III x3
  • Mk. Level IV: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.IV x3
  • Mk. Level V: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.V x3
  • Mk. Level VI: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.VI x3
  • Mk. Level VII: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.VII x3
  • Mk. Level VIII: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.VIII x3
  • Mk. Level IX: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.IX x3
  • Mk. Level X: Tech Scrap + Tungsten Alloy Mk.X x3

Upgrading implants also work similarly to upgrading weapons:

  • Mk. Level I: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.I x3
  • Mk. Level II: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.II x3
  • Mk. Level III: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.III x3
  • Mk. Level IV: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.IV x3
  • Mk. Level V: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.V x3
  • Mk. Level VI: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.VI x3
  • Mk. Level VII: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.VII x3
  • Mk. Level VIII: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.VIII x3
  • Mk. Level IX: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.IX x3
  • Mk. Level X: Tech Scrap + Implant Circuitry Mk.X x3
