The Upgrade Benches are scattered across the Battle Royale map. They were added on the initial patch of Chapter 2 Season 1. It allows you to upgrade your weapons in exchange for materials, like the Vending Machine. One can be found at all named locations and a large number of landmarks around the map.
You also have the ability to Sidegrade weapons, which allows you to change an Assault Rifle into a Heavy Assault Rifle of the same rarity, vice versa.
In Chapter 2 Season 3, you can now sidegrade a Submachine Gun into a Rapid Fire SMG and a Bolt Action Sniper Rifle into a Hunting Rifle, but now you can't sidegrade an AR to a Heavy AR.
In Patch 13.20, you can now obtain Upgrade Benches from Chests, Supply Drops and Supply Llamas. You can throw them and reuse them by breaking them, they have 400 health. Normal Upgrade Benches that spawn can now also be destroyed and dropped, they also have 400 health. It appears as the Rare rarity.
Instead of upgrading a gun, you can sidegrade it. What it does, is that you can for example take an Assault Rifle and sidegrade it into a Heavy Assault Rifle without changing any rarity. Throughout seasons new sidegrades are possible. Each side grades costs 20 Wood, Stone & Metal. Though, as of Chapter 2 Season 3, you can no longer sidegrade an AR due to the Heavy AR being vaulted at the start of the season.
