The Last of Us Part 2 upgrade guide: All unlocks, costs

Plan your weapon and skill upgrades carefully.

The Last of Us Part 2 is available now, and developer Naughty Dog has already confirmed it will take multiple playthroughs to fully upgrade each character and their arsenal. With that in mind, we thought we’d create a handy guide that details each upgrade available alongside its cost to help you better prepare.

Spoilers follow in the form of character names, weapon names and skill names. Do not look any further if that’s an issue for you.
