In his journey through the titular snow-covered village and the looming Castle Dimitrescu, Ethan will come across plenty of terrifying enemies including the werewolf-like Lycans and, of course, Lady Dimitrescu and her team of vampires.

To take them all down, Ethan’s going to need a lot of firepower behind him. Fortunately, Resident Evil Village comes loaded with plenty of weapons to take advantage of – even if ammo does remain in short supply.

Players can upgrade weapons easily by visiting The Duke’s Emporium. The Duke is a wandering Merchant who helpfully appears at various set points in the game, selling items and weapon upgrades.

We’ve got a complete guide for upgrading weapons in Resident Evil Village right here, which features all the information you need about getting your weapons in top form.

Should you sell weapons to The Duke?

Duke sells a variety of deadly weapons and upgrades.

The answer to this question might surprise a few, but we would definitely recommend selling weapons that you have less use for during your playthrough. What may aid you incredibly well during the early stages of your playthrough may become less and less effective as you move through the mid-late stages of the game.

As well as this, your inventory only holds so much, and some weapons take up a whopping 12 slots. Keeping hold of these less effective weapons will only hinder you, and so, trading those weapons you’re no longer using for a bit of Lei is never a bad idea.

One thing to note is that any decision to sell a gun is not final. You’re able to buy them back from The Duke whenever you come across him – so think of his shop as a storage box you pay a little premium to store things in.
