Remnant: From The Ashes - How To Get And Use Mods
Mods in Remnant: From The Ashes can be the difference between living and dying. These powerful items are attached to your weapons, charged by combat. You then use them to create effects like extra damage, increased chance of critical hits, or even powerful healing auras.
How To Get Mods
To get Mods, you need to search the world for rare crafting components. Powerful enemies typically drop them. When you get one, return to Ward 13 to the grumpy NPC who hangs out beside Rigs. Interact with her, and you will open a menu of the mods she can build for you. She may also be able to sell you mods, from time to time.
How To Use And Equip Mods
To use Mods, go the character tab in the pause menu. Click on the weapon you wish to equip a mod on, hit X on PC, the X-button on Xbox One, and the Square-button on PS4. Hitting this opens your Mods list, where you can pick which one you wish to use on your weapon. You can also remove mods in the same manner when you want to switch them to a new weapon.
Doing damage with the weapon and killing enemies charges the mod. You check the mod's charge by clicking on the weapon icons at the bottom left of the screen. You can bring it up by clicking the F-button on PC, the RB-button Xbox One, or the R1-button PS4. You can activate the Mod's effect when it's ready to go.
If one Mod is full, and you don't need to use it, it is a good idea to switch weapons so that the other Mod charges instead. There's no reason to continue charging a fully charged mod.
