Prosthetic Tool Upgrades in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice allows the player to improve Prosthetic Tools, and make them more deadly. Players will need to use Upgrade Materials in order to do this, and you can check out what those are on that page, but on this page will focus on just what you can upgrade them to do.

To upgrade your Prosthetic Tools, you will need to first find the tool, and gather the required materials. Progression is then done via a tree, so each upgrade requires a previous upgrade, until an ultimate path is chosen.

 You need to defeat Gyoubu Oniwa to obtain the Mechanical Barrel to upgrade Prosthetic Tools.

      Some tools are universally useful to have, others are very circumstance oriented. Upgrading along the umbrella's path for example can get you a version which blocks terror, which is useful against enemies that hit you with that. The only one's I'd call universally useful are shuriken upgrades, it's a hard counter to the many enemies that jump in the air, or can stop an enemy performing an attack, or just keep up pressure, etc. The mist raven is a 'crap wtf is THAT attack get me away from it!' move, and firecrackers are useful in, well, any fight. They give you breathing room to either heal up or go on the attack with enemies of all stripes (except apparitions). Divine Abduction is another good one, basically lets you pull off a shinobi art at will, but you'll get it much later. Oh, the flame vent can be useful early on to blast back mobs or to deal straight damage to bosses who deflect a lot, getting you closer to breaking their posture. Combine with oil or the final move in the prosthetic tree and you can set enemies alight (Sabimaru can technically achieve the same but with poison, but it usually takes two full strings to achieve results, which costs you about six spirit emblems).

          are any upgrades worth getting first over others. the materials seem pretty sparse and I would prefer only to craft things that are really going to help out the most.

              Divine abduction is missing! "A large fan that creates a vortex of wind. Costs Spirit Emblem to use. Gather and releases a gust of wind, forcing enemies caught by the vortes to turn around.. It is a mild sort of being spirited away once and if taken again, there is no coming back" I think I'm still missing one tool... I thought I could find what I'm missing here but lol...
