A research bench is vital to enabling new weapons and technologies.

A Research Bench is a work station where a science oriented party member can study new technologies. At each increase in Tech Level players gain access to a new level of research bench capable of researching higher technologies.

Any bench starting at level 2 and above can be upgraded to the next level by clicking and hitting upgrade button. There is no need to remove the old bench and build from scratch. Researching from multiple benches is possible and gives diminishing returns on the speed of research with every new bench used in the process.
