One of the early missions in Dave the Diver will unlock Duff’s Weapon Shop, and you can do business with this aquatic arms dealer from your smartphone. This is where all the weapons you discover beneath the ocean will appear. At first, he’ll give you a gun for free. Sadly, most weapons you can get require opening Weapon Enhancement Kits while diving.

Yellow Weapon Crates spawn all over the Blue Hole, and their locations change during each dive. Open one up, and you’ll get a random weapon. To get permanent upgrades, keep opening those boxes until you get blueprints for new weapons. In the Weapon Shop app, you’ll see several progress bars. Once filled, you can permanently buy a better weapon. Crafting requires a small amount of gold, but several miscellaneous items like Rope and Ore are usually needed.

Later on, Duff will let you purchase upgrades for your arsenal that increase damage or add elemental effects like “Sleep” and “Shock.” These powerful boosts often require unusual materials that you’ll need to go out of your way to find.
