ESTNN highlights all Upgrade Bench locations in Fortnite Season 7.
Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 7, dubbed “Invasion,” brought much more than just an extraterrestrial takeover to the popular Battle Royale title. Sure, aliens are a significant point of emphasis, but as usual, Epic Games outdid themselves in terms of bringing back special items, weapons and gadgets in the latest update. Some examples worth pointing to include Launch Pads, Sniper Rifles and Supply Chests.
Perhaps the most exciting revival came in the form of Upgrade Benches. These stations first appeared in Chapter 2 - Season 1 as a weapon modifier. Players could upgrade their weapons to the next rarity in exchange for building materials. Upgrade Benches returned in Season 7, but they’re a little different this time around. Let’s outline all Upgrade Bench locations this season and identify the critical distinctions.

How to use Upgrade Benches in Season 7

- Common to Uncommon - 200 gold bars
- Uncommon to Rare - 300 gold bars
- Rare to Epic - 400 gold bars
