Build up the Bastion

With each core collected, you can add a new building to the Bastion. Now you'll have a convenient place to switch weapons, make upgrades, and perform other useful actions.

Collect items

As you play, you'll find special items that you can use as upgrades for your weapons. You'll need to find (or build) a foundry to apply special items to your weapons.

The upgrade screen doesn't tell you how to upgrade your items, but I realized you need to double tap the button on the right to spend your in-game currency and apply the upgrade to your weapon.
