Full credit for this game goes to Ubisoft, for making it. And to Nintendo 
for the Wii U console to play it on.


Ever wondered where things are when you are playing the game? The weapon 
upgrades are a vital part of the game. Trying to find a certain upgrade you 
are missing for one of your weapons. Look no further as here is where they all 
are, including the well-hidden ones (31 and 49). All weapons except the Cricket
bat can be upgraded, and is worth doing so.


This is the new and improved and edited list, as in my original, I was missing
two upgrades, and there were a couple of errors. Thanks to the person who told
me about the corrections.


The upgrades are classed into four groups,

Fire Power (FP), Firing Speed (FS), Spread (SP) and Capacity (CA).

For ease of convenience I will list all the upgrades in sequence that you find
them in the game.


1. FS - Found in the Underground area on way to Brick Lane Markets. After
opening first keycard door, go into first open room to the left, past the 
handgun ammo and large medpack and past hanging zombie and down the ladder.
Upgrade to left of exit door.

2. SP - Supermarket. After entering Supermarket and locating hammer to open
door you enter large room, there is a zombie sitting against a pillar on the 
left of passageway leading down to plastic flaps. After killing it, look to
far right wall for grey partition boards up against wall, entrance is on
far right side of partitions. Upgrade inside against the wall.

3. FP - Palace Gates, Victoria Memorial. On the way to the Palace gates you
pass through a Command and Control room with a CCTV box to the left of the
exit door. Once you exit there is a large metal container in front of you,
with a large medpack on the ground in front of it.
Once you have dispatched all 3 zombies inside the container, upgrade is inside.

4. FS - Palace Gates, Victoria Memorial.  Once you have got the picklock set,
and dispatched the attacking horde, open the locked gate leading to the
manhole entrance to the sewers. To the right of the manhole there is an
open large metal container; upgrade is inside at the back.

5. FS - Green Park, Victoria Memorial. Once you have scanned the CCTV box in 
the sewers on the way to Buckingham Palace, you can take a slight detour into 
another area, unlock a gate, pick up an upgrade, and scan an extra CCTV box.
Head slightly back the way you came but go over the bridge and head right, 
and then left. Go along the corridor and through the door, into a new area.
Turn right and then crawl through the opening, and head for the island in 
front of you. Head to the left and you should see a barred gate, and a hole
you can crawl through, to the right of the gate.
Crawl through to other side and upgrade is in a tyre to your right.
Now head back towards the CCTV box in the sewers leading to Buckingham Palace.

6. CA - Buckingham Palace Underground. Once you enter the underground area
and go down the steps, the Prepper says he is losing your signal.
In front of you is a wooden chest to the left of a red lit passageway
leading to a Ravens save room. Upgrade is in the wooden chest.

7. FP - Buckingham Palace Interior. On your first visit to the Palace, once you
get past the fire room and get rid of all zombies, look for an opening
to the right of the corridor that leads down to the Queens study and the first
book. Crawl into this opening, upgrade is in a cardboard box on the right hand
side, before you reach a ladder.

8. FP - Brick Lane Markets. When on your way to Brick Lane Flats, once you exit
the manhole, from the safehouse, there is a door that is barred.

hand side of the room.

front of the Supermarket, there is a metal fence gate leading to Brick Lane
Flats at the opposite right hand side of where you first exited the
Supermarket. Upgrade is behind this metal gate, in the right hand corner,
under a set of air conditioning fans.

10. SP - Brick Lane Flats. Once you enter the area, and cross over a wall,
there is a broken metal fence gate to crawl under. After dispatching the
zombie, go up the steps to find a barred door in front of you.

wall, containing the second book that the Doctor wants.

two or three zombies in the room, one is an Armoured Zombie. Upgrade is on this

(This zombie will respawn again and again, with yet further upgrades on it. It 
is up to you as to how many times you want to go and kill it).

on the way to find the Doctor, at end of fire room before you go up the stairs
and encounter the teleporting zombies.

49. FP – Inside Buckingham Palace. As soon as you gain access to the Queen’s 
Quarters, you have to navigate through the water. In the first corridor, you
are met by a sleeping zombie in the water. Once it’s killed, you head right
and climb over a table and go left through a doorway. You are now in another
short corridor, with a furniture blockade at its end. Rather than turning 
right and climbing up on the furniture, to enter the ventilation duct, head to
the furniture. On the right hand side of the sofa, is a submerged upgrade, 
one that cannot be scanned as it is in the water.
(Never knew this upgrade was here as never looked around the area. And 
thank you to the person who told me about it.)

50. SP - Inside Buckingham Palace. When you return to the Palace to find the
Panacea code in the Vault, just before you enter the Vault, there is an 
upgrade to the left of the open metal door, against the wall.

51. FP - Buckingham Palace Underground. Once you have got the Panacea code off
the computer and have got back to where you first enter the Palace underground
area from Victoria Memorial through the sewers, there is a red flaming zombie
waiting for you on the steps leading up to the exit. Upgrade is on this zombie
once you have dispatched it.

Additional information about the amount of C4 in this game.

In the game itself, you only get 7 pieces of C4, yet there are a total of 8
piles of rubble that you can blast with it. So it is a case of choosing which 
piles of rubble you actually blast apart and go through. Think most people have
used all 7 pieces of C4 by the time they need to find the Doctor in the Palace.
The pile of rubble in front of the 47th upgrade, inside the Palace, can be
blown up, if you have not blown up all previous 7 piles of rubble.
