Resident Evil Village Weapons Guide: All parts & upgrade costs

The only way to fight lycans is with firearms.

Resident Evil Village is out now and this guide is all about tracking down each of its weapons and upgrades. Attaching each available upgrade to each applicable weapon will unlock the Gunsmith and Veteran Gunsmith Achievements or Trophies.

Needless to say, there are spoilers within, so use this guide as your own risk! Also a HUGE thanks to the mighty Jeremy Pryer for helping with this guide!

We’ll list each weapon alongside any applicable upgrade parts and upgrade pricing for ease of use. Fully upgrading any weapon will unlock an infinite ammo within the game’s Extra Content Shop section (and we’ve listed the cost with each weapon).

We found it best to focus on upgrading a single weapon at a time — and when that was done, the Duke generally offered a better weapon in the same category (ie a better handgun than the handgun you’d just fully upgraded). Don’t hestitate to sell a completed weapon for a better one as you progress. You can always buy your (fully upgraded) weapons back from the retailer at a later date. Upgrades carry over into subsequent playthroughs (if you use your continued save, that is).
