Upgrade benches have a cost associated with upgrading each tier of weapon. You need to spend 200 Gold to upgrade Common weapons into Uncommon ones. Each tier beyond that costs an additonal 100 Gold. So that means going from Rare to Epic will cost 400 Gold, for example. If you were crazy and wanted to jump from Common to Epic—that would cost 900 Gold.
All Upgrade Bench locations in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1
There are many of these benches found around the map. Basically, every other POI in the game has some amount of upgrade bench locations hidden within. Most of them are focused on the garages and body shops around the island. It makes sense that Epic would place them here as the Upgrade Bench locations are thematically fitting.
