In a game as geared around equipment and survival as New World, you need every bit of shelter and security you can get. Camps are the best way to do this, since they provide a safe respawn point as well as a spot to regain HP after a hard battle. Of course, you’ll want to upgrade camps to their fullest capacity, to get the most benefit. We’ve got the lowdown on how to upgrade camps in New World.
How to Upgrade Camp Sites in New World
To upgrade camps in New World, you need to increase your Camping Tier. This will happen over time as you complete specific quests geared around camping skills. Unfortunately, the quests you need to upgrade camps don’t become available until you reach certain levels.
Once you reach the levels seen below, you’ll unlock an Upgrade Camps quest, which then takes you up a tier. Here’s the breakdown:
- Level 5 – Camping Tier 1
- Level 15 – Camping Tier 2
- Level 25 – Camping Tier 3
- Level 40 – Camping Tier 4
- Level 55 – Camping Tier 5
As you can see, you need to get to get to high levels to max out your Camping Tier. By doing this, you’ll be able to access more crafting recipes while at camp, with new weapon coatings, food, and potions. It’s a pretty crucial base to improve upon if you can. Clearly, though, it’s going to take a lot of time.
The key thing to remember when upgrading camps is that you can’t upgrade it like you can skills or abilities. Rather than a skill tree where you spend points, you can only upgrade camps by completing certain quests, which only crop up at certain points in the game. It’ll depend on your level of progression too, so it’s not an easy feat.
As a pointer, the first camp quest automatically appears once you load into the world. The second one is called “Survivalist: Friends in Fashion,” and it appears in Monarch Bluffs. The rest are still hard to come by due to how high the level requirements are – but if you want to succeed in New World, you’ll need a solid camp.
