Weapons and shields (hand slot equipment) can be modified through the introduction of various technological and magical elements, called Mods. These Mods are typically integrated into pre-defined slots or hard points on an item through a simple procedure that can be performed by any adventurer. Whether found or fabricated, Mods improve or alter the abilities of the item they are placed into. The modification of an item commonly results in a corresponding change in its silhouette, such as a clip extending from the stock of a rifle. Although any character can apply a Mod, a character will need to return to a station and use a Delux De-Modificator to remove the mods once they are installed. There is a fee associated with using the Delux De-Modificator, however it ensures that the weapon and it's Mods are separated safely.
There are six types of Mods, as listed below.
