In Wolfenstein: Youngblood you are given the option to extnsively upgrade and modify the weapons you unlock. This includes the 5 standard weapons, the Krafwork weapons, and the heavy weapons which are dropped by the heavily-armored biomechanical supersoldats when you kill them. This Weapons Guide for Wolfenstein: Youngblood will tell you everything you need to know about upgrading and equipping them.
All weapons in Wolfenstein: Youngblood have five components which you can modify - receiver, sight, magazine, barrel, and grip. Those 5 components each have 3 brands - Nadel (accuracy), Tempo (speed), and Stier (power) from which you can choose from. With so many options on offer it is important that you choose the upgrades and modifications you equip carefully as the right combination can give you huge bonuses to your weapons' stats.
As there is plenty of money to be found in Wolfenstein: Youngblood you should not hesitate to buy as many weapon upgrades and modifiers as you can afford. Since they have such a profound effect on the weapon you are using it is beneficial to have plenty of options.
There are two ways in Wolfenstein: Youngblood in which you can increase damage for your weapons without spending any money or equipping anything extra. These are through player level and Weapon Mastery. As you progress in the game earning XP your player level will increase, each time it does you will get a damage buff of 2%. Killing the enemy will enable you to progresses through Weapon Mastery levels which will add damage bonuses for the weapon used.
In Wolfenstein: Youngblood you will be forced to switch between weapons to counter enemy barriers. For example there are certain Kraftwork weapons that are the only way through some doors or into some crates. Whatever the reason you will not be able to rely on any one gun throughout the game therefore you cannot call one better than the other.
