Where to Upgrade Gear

Biomutant - Workbench Hot Air Balloon

It’s easy to go through Biomutant without realizing these hot air balloons are important.

While you can craft weapons anywhere in Biomutant, there are certain places to upgrade weapons and armor. It’s easy to play a good chunk of the game without realizing these benches are on hot air balloons. You can find them in small towns and major outposts. Simply keep an eye on the sky for a low-hanging hot air balloon with a rope to climb up.

Not everyone hot air balloon seems to have a table for both weapons and armor. So you may need to fast-travel between outposts to find what you’re looking for. For those that don’t know, upgrading gear is completely separate from crafting. You can improve the quality and material of your gear making it stronger. This is a useful trick for improving weak gear that you want to keep. Even though it can get expensive quickly.

Biomutant - Scrap Screenshot Tip

Recycling old gear and junk is a good way to get materials alongside destroying scrap towers too.

If you’re having trouble getting materials for crafting, don’t forget that you can scrap almost anything. Keep in mind, however, you may want to sell some gear instead as well. So you’ll want to balance between selling and scrapping items. Otherwise, you can rely on finding scrap towers around Biomutant for materials too.
