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. Crafted uniques such as the Zephyr Spark Launcher are the only real exception to the rule, alongside the Neo Magnum, Neo Magnum-E78, and Neo Magnum-RX due to them being purchased rather than found as loot.

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.

Upgrade Costs

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.

Weapon Tier Essence Cost
1 3750
2 3500
3 3000
4 2250
5 1250
