How to Upgrade Weapons in Red Dead Redemption 2

Upgrading weapons and guns in Red Dead Redemption is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is head to the nearest gun store, interact with the store worker, and select the customize option. The good news is that finding a gun store is as simple as heading to the nearest town, and the game has a lot of towns to choose from.

Opening up the customize option will allow you to improve your favorite weapons and guns while not costing too much in-game money. Make sure you clean your weapon first at the gunsmith, or else he will refuse to upgrade the firearm for you.

Players can choose whichever part of the gun they would like to upgrade, with each piece specializing in a specific stat. For example, upgrading the Iron Sights will make the gun better at long range and more accurate.
