Help with upgrades and 4th weapon.
Hello, this is my first playthough, im about to finish chapter 4, i want some guide on what should i be focusing on upgrading.

Ive looked up some guides on upgrading and weapons online but they give contradicting information.

So far i have spent all my nodes on the plasma cutter, ive bought all the damage upgrades and all but 2 of the clip size upgrades. However, looking at how uncommon nodes are, im not sure i will be able to upgrade many more things. How many weapons did you upgrade by the end of the game?

What is the best weapon to upgrade? I have 3 weapons currently, plasma cutter, pulse rifle and line gun.
Also, what would be a good choice for my 4th weapon? or should i not buy a 4th weapon at all if im not going to be able to upgrade it?
Im would also like to be able to upgrade stasis, but i dont know if its a wise decision.

when I played this on my old PC (currently on my new PC build here), my 4 preferred weapons were the Force Gun, Line Gun, Pulse Rifle (for the Leviathan and Hive Mind), and the Contact Beam (useful as a long-ranged sniper rifle when maxed-out).

actually, upgrading your Stasis (particularly its duration) is a must, because the ENG seen on the Bench acts as a refill

did you upgrade all of your guns or only some of them? i was also thinking about buying the contact beam, but i will do it once i have a level 4 suit since inventory space is a problem right now.

well, being that I like to exploit the re-spawning credits glitch on Chapters 2, 3, 4, and sometimes on 6, that'll allow me to max-out some of my weapons early (mainly my Force Gun and Line Gun, as I primarily use those the most), while also saving up for new suits and to upgrade my RIG.

but I would wait until the last couple of chapters before getting the Contact Beam, let alone upgrading it. the weapon you'll want to use the most, is the Force Gun. the reason why, is because once you max it out, the enemies will have "sweet spots" on them allowing you to do one-hit kills with the Force Gun's primary fire (the grenade launcher alternate-fire is excellent for severing the Guardian's tentacles)
