You will be able to upgrade weapons and armor at vendors to improve their performance in battle. Vendors are found in various locations such as templs, villages, and camps on the island of Tsushima.

Vendors differ in the upgrade services they offer.
Talk to a vendor to open the upgrade menu. Note that vendors specialize in different types of equipment so it is worth remembering the type of service each one provides. The example below shows the method of upgrading the Half Bow through the services of the Bowyer merchant.
Weapons have different characteristics that can be enhanced.
After selecting the equipment you want to improve, the effects of the upgrade will be shown. Each weapon has a set of characteristics which can be enhanced by having the necessary amount of materials. The half bow, for, instance, can be upgraded to improve its damage, draw speed, range, stability, reload speed, and zoom.
The cost of an upgrade increases as you continuously refine equipment. Be sure to take the time to gather as many resources as you can while exploring the game world.
