Fortnite Upgrade Bench - Where to Find Upgrade Benches and Upgrade Your Weapons

Here's our guide to the Fortnite Upgrade Bench locations, so you can easily upgrade your weapons.

Upgrade Benches are a brand new addition to Fortnite Battle Royale in Chapter 2, and they allow you to boost the rarity tier of any weapons. In this Fortnite Upgrade Benches guide, we'll be walking you through where you can find the Upgrade Benches, as well as how to use them to boost your weapons once you've tracked them down.

Fortnite: How to Use Upgrade Benches

Fortnite's new Upgrade Benches require you to deposit a certain amount of resources, in order to increase the rarity tier of your currently equipped weapon. Just below, we've listed out all the rarity tiers that you can boost your weapons to, and how much it'd cost to upgrade your weapons to said tier.

  • Uncommon (Green) - 50 Wood, 50 Stone, 50 Metal.
  • Rare (Blue) - 150 Wood, 150 Stone, 150 Metal.
  • Epic (Purple) - 250 Wood, 250 Stone, 250 Metal.
  • Legendary (Gold) - 350 Wood, 350 Stone, 350 Metal.

Note however that these new benches can only be used to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Battle Royale. You can't come looking to boost any other item, including potions, bandages, medical kits, and other non-weapon items. In addition to this, you also can't upgrade the Bandage Bazooka, the new cannon that fires out bandages for your teammates to get and heal themselves with.

Where to Find Upgrade Benches in Fortnite

Right now, we've only ever found Upgrade Benches in named locations on the Fortnite map. For example, we've encountered Upgrade Benches in Frenzy Farm, Lazy Lake, and Misty Meadows. For a full walkthrough of all the new named locations, head over to our Fortnite Chapter 2 map guide.

If you're on the hunt for an Upgrade Bench, then keep an eye out for the strange object in the image above. Although it doesn't really look anything like a bench, this is what the Upgrade Benches actually look like in Fortnite, and the bright light at the top will glow brighter the closer you are to the bench itself, so keep an eye out for a light just above head height.

If you're after more Fortnite content, then we've got you covered here at USG. You can check out our main Fortnite Chapter 2 map guide for a full overview of the new locales, our Fortnite XP guide on how to earn XP quickly, or our Fortnite Medals guide for a full list of the new Medals.
