In Rage 2, you’re able to upgrade vehicles like the Phoenix. To view your available upgrades, you’ll need to open your in-game menu and then select the Vehicles tab. Inside the menu, select the Phoenix and then press either X (PS4) or A (Xbox One) to expand the upgrades menu. Upgrades require Auto Parts to unlock.

You can earn Auto Parts by unlocking new vehicles, beating Convoy missions, opening Ark Chests, purchasing them at Trade Town locations like Rusty’s Autoparts in Wellspring, or by working your way through the game’s campaign. Once you have enough Auto Parts available, you’ll be able to spend them on upgrades.

For example, you can upgrade the Phoenix and add the Hellfire Mortar weapon, upping the overall damage output of the vehicle. Overall, you’ll want to take the time to earn Auto Parts to upgrade your Phoenix to make it as efficient as possible in Rage 2 in order to tackle everything the wasteland has to offer.
