Upgrading buildings and weapons in Forts provide you with more options. It changes the way some weapons behave and gives you more tools to play with. Here’s how to make use of upgrades.

How to Upgrade Weapons in Forts

Before you get to upgrading weapons in Forts, you’ll need to get an Upgrade Center up and running. Upgrade Center are costly buildings and they are hard to get fast. They cost 600 Metal and 3000 Energy and also take a whole minute to be constructed. Depending on the strategies and conditions of the stage, it’s not always worth going for. However, if you do build it, you open up upgrades for weapons.

What to do Once the Upgrade Center is Completed

Once your Upgrade Center is up and running, you can finally start upgrading your weapons and other buildings. Right-click on the weapon you wish to upgrade and click on the up arrow. You can also hover your mouse over the building and press the U key. However, you should account for the fact that buildings are unavailable while upgrading. Buildings like Mines stop producing, but also stop consuming energy and such. Weapons stop being useable during the process.

Also, you might not want to just upgrade every weapon. Generally speaking, Machine Gunner and Flak are best un-upgraded. Simply because the upgraded versions stop being automatic. Others, like the Mortar, lose their ability to set things on fire when upgraded. Carefully consider what you need at the moment before upgrading. This is going to depend on your current circumstances and playstyle.

In old versions of Terraria, the Shimmer liquid is part of the end game content. That means you will have access to it only when you’ve progressed further into the game.

In the Labor of Love content, the Aether Mini Biome is randomly spawned into the world and all you need to do is look for it.

Depending on how fast you can dig, you will be able to gain access to the Aether Mini Biome early in the game which opens up different item conversions which we will be discussing further on.

In this guide, we will show you the different uses for the Shimmer liquid in Terraria 1.4.4.

Labor of Love Shimmer Guide in Terraria

The shimmer liquid affects items in the game in different ways. Items that are crafted from different materials will sometimes disassemble when thrown into the liquid.

Throw items into the liquid to disassemble or upgrade existing items

Other items get upgraded to new versions of items exclusive in the latest update. Examples of this are the Life Crystal which turns into a vital crystal in the pool. This grants permanent regeneration boosts.

Another item is the Rod of discord. Throwing that into the pool will change it into a rod of Harmony where you can use the rod’s ability to teleport without suffering any debuff from use.

Try throwing different items to see their results

NPCs that fall into the liquid will change their appearances and if you fall into the pond, you will be sucked down and pass through blocks. Try to throw in different items and test out their results.
