All parts replaced by RED® during the upgrade are the property of RED and are not returned.
All EPIC RED DRAGON and SCARLET DRAGON BRAIN(s) are eligible for the WEAPON DRAGON upgrade if you either purchased directly from RED or completed the Transfer of Ownership process.
Upgrade Sales Tax
If you receive your upgraded WEAPON DRAGON Package in California, Florida, New York, or Washington, then applicable sales tax is applied.
If you receive your upgraded WEAPON DRAGON Package in the European Union, Value Added Tax (VAT) may be applied where applicable.
You are responsible for shipping your EPIC DRAGON or SCARLET DRAGON to RED for the WEAPON Upgrade. You are also responsible for the shipping of your WEAPON order.
Send in the following items for the WEAPON DRAGON upgrade:
- EPIC RED DRAGON BRAIN or SCARLET DRAGON BRAIN
- DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module or RED MINI-MAG® Side SSD Module
- DSMC Lens Mount (DSMC Ti PL Mount recommended)
NOTE: RED recommends that you return your DSMC Lens Mount so RED can check back focus and compatibility with your new WEAPON as part of the Outbound Quality Control process. If applicable, the DSMC Ti PL Mount is highly recommended to confirm it is up to specification and compatible with your WEAPON. Once completed, your DSMC Lens Mount will be shipped back to you (separate from your WEAPON camera).
Once you have been issued a service order number, you can send your EPIC DRAGON or SCARLET DRAGON to any of the worldwide RED facilities.
NOTE: The upgrade is performed exclusively at RED Headquarters and RED Europe Ltd. If you send your camera to other RED facilities, that will add to the anticipated turnaround time.

Upgrade MYSTERIUM-X to WEAPON
While there is no path for EPIC MYSTERIUM-X® or SCARLET MYSTERIUM-X owners to upgrade to WEAPON, the RED Owner Pricing program does have a path for upgrading to RED EPIC-W 8K.
For full RED Owner Pricing information and upgrade options, visit the RED Owner Pricing - Program Details article.
RED Account Troubleshooting
If you cannot see an eligible serial number when you sign into your RED account, then the WEAPON DRAGON upgrade pre-order may already be placed for the eligible camera serial number or the upgrade may not yet be available for your account.
