All weapon upgrades in Dead Space Remake and how to get them

These things are everywhere!

Every weapon in Dead Space Remake will have various upgrades that can either be purchased or must have their upgrade schematic picked up and brought to a Bench. They are located throughout the Ishimura, with some requiring different clearance levels and access to areas only accessible when going through the main story. Acquiring some upgrades will require players to do the Side Missions in the game as well as several upgrades are locked behind doors that require the Master Override. These are all the weapon upgrade locations in Dead Space Remake.
