Tomb Raider Upgrades Guide: Shotgun Upgrades – Drum Mag

During your journey trough the Island trying to survive is one of the most important things to do. In Tomb Raider you will have plenty of ways to improve your performance, making surviving the harsh environment easier than it looks like. We have already covered pretty much all the skills that Lara can learn by acquiring some experience points by doing a lot of different actions like gathering loot from the ground and from dead animal bodies, fighting enemies and so on. While all skills may not be too useful in the beginning, unlocking and mastering all of them will bring you some important advantages. Together with the skill system, you will also be able to improve your gear and weapons by finding spare parts for the four weapons in your possession: Bow, Hand, Rifle and Shotgun. Some of the extra parts will be available as part of the story while others need to be found and are completely optional. Each new part comes with a salvage cost so think carefully before buying one of the upgrades: at the same time there’s enough salvage to purchase all the upgrades but you will have to find all crates, hunt all animals in each area and loot as much as possible. Just make sure to buy the upgrades you really need in a specific moment. In this guide we will cover all the possible weapons upgrade starting with the Bow and then moving on the other three weapons.

  • Shotgun Upgrades

Shotgun Upgrades are unlocked during the course of the game. Opening salvage boxes and looting enemies will make you find bow parts. Unfortunately there’s no set location for these parts since they’ll be found randomly in specific areas in specific points of the story.

Drum Mag

The Drum Mag upgrade is the enhanced version of the Shell Mag upgrade. Thanks to the Drum Mag you will be able not only to reload faster but you’ll also be able to double the magazine size to 12. It’s an important upgrade to obtain, especially if you like using the the Shotgun in battle. This upgrade will cost you 400 Salvage.
