Fortnite Upgrade Benches Season 7 Locations
When the Upgrade Benches were first introduced to Fortnite, players would be able to upgrade their weapons by making sure they have enough materials for the upgrade. With the return of the Upgrade Benches, there has been a change in how they work as you can no longer upgrade your weapons with materials, but you will need gold bars instead. Here is a map showing you where you can find the Upgrade Benches:
As previously mentioned, you will need gold bars in order to upgrade your weapon at the bench, so make sure you have plenty before trying. The easiest way to complete the challenge is to upgrade a common weapon into uncommon as it takes 200 gold bars in order to upgrade it and the higher the rarity, the more gold you will need to spend.
When you are at the bench, you will need to equip the weapon you want to upgrade first and then interact with it. Once you have interacted with it, you will have the option to upgrade the weapon you are holding. You will need to upgrade three weapons in order to complete this challenge and once you have completed it, you will be awarded with 30,000 XP.
