    The description implies that applying mods also counts towards this but it never did for me. Once you get your science skill to 20 you will be able to upgrade the level of your weapons and armor at any workbench, the first upgrade costs around 50 bits at the start of the game and will double in cost every time. If you want to knock this out as fast as possible upgrade every piece of gear you find once, before dismantling/selling it.

    Oncogene27Currently half glitched. Sometimes the progress bar will fill, sometimes it won't. Reloading doesn't work. Obtaining new armor and weapons to upgrade doesn't work most of the time. It's completely random. Installing mods never works. Whatever the latest patch was broke the hell out of this one.

    If you want to get this out of the way fast, save up around 2.000 bits and wait until you got around 30 weapons and/or armor pieces in your inventory. Go over to a workbench once you hit at least 20 points in science.

    Save your game, go to workbench and upgrade every weapon and/or armor piece until you've done it 30 times. Reload your save after unlocking the achievement to keep all your money.
