    The upgrade function for Amicia's equipment is unlocked during Chapter 2 upon a brief tutorial. All nine upgrades below are required to fully upgrade the equipment.

    • Tier 2: holds up to 16 materials of each type (10 Sulphur, 6 Fabric, 2 Leather, 1 Tool)
    • Tier 3: holds up to 22 materials of each type (16 Sulphur, 10 Fabric, 3 Leather, 1 Tool)

    Ammunition Bag:

    • Tier 1: Holds up to 10 ammunitions of each type (6 Alcohol, 4 Leather, 1 Tool)
    • Tier 2: Holds up to 14 ammunitions of each type (11 Alcohol, 5 Leather, 4 Cord, 1 Tool)
    • Tier 3: Holds up to 20 ammunitions of each type (16 Alcohol, 7 Leather, 8 Cord, 1 Tool)


    • Tier 1: Running and dodging make less noise (5 Salpeter, 5 Fabric, 1 Tool)
    • Tier 2: Amicia no longer needs a workshop to upgrade her equipment (11 Salpeter, 6 Fabric, 3 Leather, 1 Tool)
    • Tier 3: Amicia no longer needs tools to upgrade her equipment (18 Salpeter, 9 Fabric, 4 Leather, 1 Tool)

    It is possible to upgrade everything without replaying chapters. The general rule is any upgrade, be it the sling or equipment, should be performed as soon as it can be done. However, if multiple upgrade choices are available or you are just a few materials short, consider upgrading Pocket first, and then Attirail. Expanding the material capacities means reducing the occasions of leaving behind materials from the environment due to not having enough capacity to hold them; no longer needing a workshop and tools means upgrades can be done more readily.

    Among all the materials, sulphur, salpeter and alcohol are abundant; fabric, leather and cords come moderately, and tools are the rarest. So it is highly recommended to always explore the environment thoroughly to find as many materials as possible. In addition, unless absolutely necessary, avoid crafting ammunitions which require fabric and leather to save them for sling and/or equipment upgrades.

  • A VERY VERY IMPORTANT piece of information missing. ABSOLUTELY avoid upgrading the alchemy stuff. You dont need it for an achievement (I thought I did) and was 1 upgrade short of the sling. I had the equipment fully upgraded and 1 short of the alchemy fully upgraded. I eas very thorough in exploring and getting resources but one chapter in particular I was full but had no tools to upgrade so I missed a few resources. Another chapter I also found a lot of resources but couldnt grab them to upgrade because I was short another component. So if you can, upgrade the capacity first. alsoI was also very stingy with the expensive ammo, maybe crafted 2 or 3 throughout the game.
  • Easy Glitch to obtain this achievement: 1- load the chapter X "The way of roses" from select chapter menu, and keep holding the select button while doing so. 2- after Amicia stops talking try to move with the left stick while still holding the select button, if you can move you can let go of the select button, the menu will still show on left side. 3- now hold RB to show the ammunition crafting menu on the right side, and don't let go of RB throughout the entire process. From the left side menu, select an upgrade you already have (white rectangle). 4- now choose an ammunition you can craft and hold the A button to craft it, but as soon as you press A switch fast to an upgrade you don't have in the left side menu using the left stick or using the d-pad buttons.5-continue crafting to obta
  • StormRider's method works wonders. Thank you!
  • Can confirm StormRider CL's method still works. Thanks so much for that one
  • Stormrider's method still works.
  • Don't know if I'm doing this wrong,but what's ment to happen???
  • Can confirm StormRider’s method STILL works! Thank you, dude. I was getting highly upset because I couldn’t figure out the glitch from other gamers on YouTube. The key is to switch to the upgrade you don’t have as soon as you push the A button on the upgrade you already have.
