About Camp Upgrading
Upgrade The Camp Via The Ledger
You will be able to upgrade your camp via the ledger. The ledger can be found near Dutch's Tent or in his room depending on which camp you are on. It is marked by a square with a "$" on it.
Contribute Money to the Gang to Upgrade
Upgrading the camp will require you to pony up some cash. So before upgrading the camp, make sure that you have enough money for the upgrade that you want to purchase!
What Can You Upgrade In Camp?
There are three main aspects in the camp which you will need to keep in check, these are: medicine, provisions, and food. Upgrading these in camp will keep supplies up to sustain your camp!
Medicine will keep you and other people healthy. Buying upgrades for medicine will fill Strauss's wagon with tonics, health cures, and more medicine which you can use to restore your health, stamina or Dead Eye bars!
Provisions will help keep the members of the camp from starving. Upgrading Pearson's wagon will eventually give you options to choose from bread and biscuits, to fresh fruit and canned goods to restore your cores!
Having a good supply for ammo will help you arm yourselves for the wild, wild west! Upgrading Arthur's wagon will give you a variety of bullets to keep your guns fully loaded when facing against enemies!
