How To Upgrade Weapons in Alan Wake 2

Mind Place

You can upgrade weapons by visiting Saga Anderson’s Mind Place. Inside the place, look for the table with wine bottles under it, as the manual for your gun is kept on it. Once you get near it, interact with the manual and it will show all the available upgrades. Initially, only upgrades for Saga’s Pistol will be available, but later in the game, you can upgrade other weapons as well.

You will be shown three different upgrade options, which you need to choose from based on amount of Manuscript Fragments you hold. As shown in the image above, the Manuscripts work as a currency for buying weapon upgrades. You can find these fragments inside the colorful-looking lunchboxes hidden around the game’s world.


That said, the three starting options for weapon upgrades for Saga’s Pistol are as follows:

  • Again and Again: It increases the Pistol’s rate of fire You just need to hold the fire button for a few seconds to activate the auto-fire mode. (18 Fragments required to upgrade)
  • More Bullets: This upgrade increases the magazine size of the Pistol by 50%, allowing you to fire more bullets at a time. (12 Fragments required to upgrade)
  • Another Headshot: It increases the accuracy of your headshot. You can land two headshots on enemies quickly, leaving them stunned for longer. (12 Fragments required to upgrade)
