    There are 11 weapons in total, each with a specific Material needed to upgrade that weapon at the Forge in the Bastion.
    These are:

    1. Cael Hammer - Something Heavy
    2. Breaker's Bow - Something Stringy
    3. Fang Repeater - Something Nasty
    4. War Machete - Something Sharp
    5. Scrap Musket - Something Coarse
    6. Duelling Pistols - Something Greasy
    7. Brusher's Pike - Something Pointy
    8. Army Carbine - Something Fancy
    9. Galleon Mortar - Something Burnt
    10. Fire Bellows - Something Foul
    11. Calamity Cannon - Something Wrong

    These weapons and their materials are scattered throughout the levels, normally in fairly obvious places (the last weapon is found in the 'Zulten's Hollow' level). Each weapon must be upgraded at least once
    If you do not have a certain material, many of them can be found as prizes in the Proving Grounds. Also, once you have built the Lost and Found building in the Bastion, most materials can be found there.
    Upgrading also requires some of the game currency (small blue shards). Good ways of getting these are completing the Proving Grounds, Who Knows Where levels and by activating idols once you have built the Shrine in the Bastion.

    guns vs kittensJust adding, if a weapon glitches and doesn't show up in the Forge (like what happened to me), go to the trial where you test your skill with the weapon.
    My mortar glitched and didn't register as unlocked until I went there and played a few times.

    There are 11 weapons in the game to be upgraded they are as follows in order they are obtained.
    1 Cael Hammer (something Heavy)
    2 Fang Repeater (Something Nasty)
    3 Breakers Bow (Something Stringy)
    4 War Machete (Something Sharp)
    5 Scrap Musket (Something Coarse)
    6 Dueling Pistols (Something Greasy)
    7 Brushers Pike (Something Pointy)
    8 Army Carbine (Something Fancy)
    9 Fire Bellows (Something Foul)
    10 Galleon Mortar (Something Burnt)
    11 Calamity Cannon (Something Wrong)
    If you miss any of these upgrades they can be obtained from the various proving ground trials and from the Lost and Found.
    Once you purchase the last upgrade from the Forge (most likely for the Calamity Cannon since it is unlocked very late in the game.) the achievement will pop.
