The Last of Us Part 1 offers players many opportunities to improve their skills and abilities on their long journey across the post-apocalyptic United States. From training manuals that improve Joel’s equipment to supplement pills that increase his effectiveness and efficiency, these tools are invaluable on the punishing road towards redemption, along which our protagonist walks in The Last of Us Part 1.

One of the ways that the player can improve their abilities is by scrounging weapon parts and tools in The Last of Us, all of which contribute to increasing the strength and speed of their weapons. This guide will walk players through the best weapon upgrades that they can obtain in order of priority.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Long Gun Holster

This upgrade can be acquired by using the workbench in Bill’s Town after retrieving the Level 1 Tool Box. Costing 75 weapon parts, it will add a second holster onto Joel’s backpack, allowing for faster weapon switching both in and out of combat.

Short Gun Holster

Similarly to the Long Gun Holster, this upgrade adds a holster to Joel’s thigh, allowing players to equip another pistol to the Weapon Cross.

Bow

For fans of stealth, the bow upgrades are crucial to maintaining a quiet playstyle in The Last of Us Part 1, offering the only solution for picking off enemies silently from a distance.

In particular, the Range add-ons make arrows travel much greater distances, while the Draw Speed mods give a much-needed boost to getting a quick kill. The Reload Speed upgrade also makes for a nice addition for players who find themselves using the Bow a lot.

Hunting Rifle

The most powerful weapon in the series, the Hunting Rifle offers some of the most impressive and transformative upgrades in The Last of Us Part 1. Most crucially are the Power and Armor Piercing upgrades that give the weapon a much greater punch.

Like with the Bow, if players find themselves using this powerful weapon a lot, they should also think about investing in the other upgrades.

El Diablo

A hand cannon of insane proportions, this little devil is comparable to Joel’s Hunting Rifle in power. As such, players will also want to use their weapon parts on the Armor Piercing upgrades to help quickly take down the tougher enemies in the game.

With such a small cylinder, players will also want to think about buying the Clip Capacity upgrade too, though they are unlikely to ever be carrying much ammo for this formidable gun.

Flamethrower

This incredibly reliable weapon is the king of crowd control in The Last of Us Part 1. Unparalleled in its ability to take on hordes of infected, the flamethrower upgrades are vital to a successful combat encounter with the fungal dead. The Power and Range upgrades are the most necessary modifications that players can make, as a fuel tank capacity of 100 makes short work of anything in the way.

Honorable mentions go to the Reload Speed upgrades for the Revolver, Shotgun, and Shorty, as well as the Clip Capacity and Range mods for Shorty and the Shotgun. Dishonorable mentions go to any and all unnecessary fire rate upgrades.

The Last of Us Part 1 is currently available for PS5, and is in development for PC.
