Fortnite weapon upgrade benches are back, after gathering dust in the vault for the last couple of seasons, and it's a good job too because the process for improving your guns has changed once again in Fortnite Season 7. You can no longer visit Fortnite characters to get an upgrade, so now Fortnite upgrade benches are the only way to increase the rarity of weapons.

The currency required has also changed, so instead of being able to spend gathered materials of wood, stone, and metal to level up guns it's now Fortnite gold bars that you need to invest, with prices increasing significantly. Still, it's good to see them back on the Fortnite island, so if you're ready to improve your arsenal then here are all of the Fortnite weapon upgrade benches locations, with details of how to use them and the associated costs.

The map above shows all of the Fortnite weapon upgrade benches locations we've found on the island, for a grand total of 18 different places you can access. Generally you'll find the Fortnite upgrade benches inside buildings rather than out in the open, but once you get close you'll be able to see the little up arrow icon through any walls or other barriers so you hone in on the exact location.

Fortnite weapon upgrade benches can be used multiple times during a match, so you don't need to worry about someone else getting there first, and you can also return to them if you find more guns in need of improvements. Simply approach the bench with an upgradeable weapon equipped and you'll see a prompt confirming the rarity increase, along with the price for making the change. This process isn't cheap now that gold bars are the currency for using the upgrade benches, so transformation of weapons will cost the following:

  • Common (grey) > Uncommon (green) = 200 bars
  • Uncommon (green) > Rare (blue) = 300 bars
  • Rare (blue) > Epic (purple) = 400 bars
  • Epic (purple) > Legendary (orange) = 500 bars
