Weapon Upgrade Anvil
This advanced ancient technology can raise the effectiveness of some weapons.
The Weapon Upgrade Anvil, found only in Ancient Vaults, is a specialized station at which one can exchange Ancient Essence to upgrade almost any sub-Tier-6 Legendary Unique Weapon to tier 6 stats. Zephyr Spark Launcher is the only real exception to the rule, while technically the Neo Magnum, Neo Magnum-E78, and Neo Magnum-RX also qualify.
The only way to access an upgrade anvil is to clear past the guardian inside an Ancient Vault. The anvil is found directly under the exit from the vault.
After upgrading a weapon using the anvil a gold star will display next to the weapon's name inside the tooltip window. Weapons cannot be upgraded more than one time.
Though it can be accessed through normal gameplay, it cannot be picked up or printed at a Pixel Printer.
The amount of Ancient Essence required to upgrade a weapon depends on its tier. Weapons with a tier closer to tier 6 are cheaper to upgrade while weapons with a tier far below tier 6 are more expensive to upgrade.
