The workbench we’ll be locating next is the Pistol workbench. The pistol workshop looks relatively close, but it is actually situated in the upper part of the town.

Pistol Workbench can be found on the uppermost level of the island, northwest of the SMG Workbench.
After reaching there, you will find a Steel door or the Nazi armory that cannot be opened by normal means. There are two ways to open this giant metal door, and we will be discussing both of them.
The first method is by using Armory Key. To get the Armory Key, you’ll have to take down Officer Josef Lowenstam. You can him strolling around near the east entrance to the main compound in the room next to the large set of stairs.
The second method is very simple and straightforward. Plant the Satchel Charge on the Blue Steel Door and blow it up.

Finding the Pistol Workbench in Spy Academy will not only unlock pistol upgrades but will also unlock the Pistol Contraband Crate attachment bundle in Sniper Elite 5.
Location of Rifle Workbench In Spy Academy
The Rifle Workbench is the easiest to miss unless you are exploring every nook and cranny of Spy Academy. For this Workbench, we’ll recommend leaving it as it is until you complete the mission, or if you want to get to the Rifle Workbench from the Pistol workshop we will guide you through that too.
This workbench location can be tricky to find in Sniper Elite 5. It is located in the Far-North of the island. You can identify the site easily by eavesdropping on the Nazi Soldiers training for “Operation Kraken”.
Walkthrough From Pistol Workshop
From the location where you found the Pistol Workbench, head to the west and get inside the cathedral via the west gate. Move towards the statue in the cathedral and turn left.
After turning left, cross the miniature bridge until you see some cardboard struts.
From there, turn left again and take the stairs down to reach the lowest level and head outside into the courtyard and follow the path across the bridge, and turn right. After reaching the area between the two pillars, look to your right, and you will see a giant wall with vines on it. Climb the vines, and you’ll reach the Rifle Workbench.
Walkthrough From the Escape Boat
If you are someone who has already completed the mission and is on his way to the exit but wants to get rifle upgrades before leaving, worry not, we have got you covered as well.
Obviously, backtracking all the way to the Pistol Workshop and getting to the Rifle Workbench from there is quite a hassle. Luckily you don’t have to do that because you’ll find the vine wall on your way to the extraction point.
Before you make your way out of the cathedral and head towards the escape boat, look back at the fortress walls. Head towards the East from there and you’ll reach the wall with vines.
