The Surge Guide: How To Get And Upgrade New Weapons
The best way to get good weapons is to acquire them from enemies. Target the arm or hand where the weapon is equipped and attack it. Once you have built up enough energy and you get the finisher icon, press the button to launch a finishing move. A small cutscene will play and if you have damaged that particular body part enough, the weapon will be on the ground, yours for the taking. Sometimes, instead of the weapon, you may get the materials that you need to craft that weapon. You can also get weapons laying around the world but the best way is still to get it from enemies.
Now, how to upgrade these weapons? You need to go to the Gear Assembly, located inside the OPS Centre. Interact with the console and go to the upgrade tab. Choose the upgrade level to see the materials and Techscrap required to upgrade the weapon.
