Introduction

Each weapon category in Wayfinder has a unique weapon mastery associated with it. In this Wayfinder weapon mastery guide we are going to cover how you upgrade your weapon mastery, what upgrading the weapon mastery does, and more.

You can see which weapon mastery is associated with each category in our Wayfinder Weapon Guide. You can further increase your power by upgrading your mastery of a weapon category. There are currently 4 weapon categories in Wayfinder. The weapon category determines which masteries you can upgrade and equip.
