Weapon Mods Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1

If you’re curious about utilizing Weapon Mods in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, here’s a guide on leveraging in-game benches to personalize your weapons with a range of attachments.

Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 2 will bring over the Weapon Mods introduced in the previous season. Despite having a few different weapons this time around, the mods will remain the same.

Unlike last season, the new rendition of Weapon Mod benches will be in Weapon Bunkers for players to discover. This is likely due to the lack of vaults present to fit the Myths and Mortals theme of the new season.

Players need to use a Weapon Mod Bench to customize weapons in the game.

Players can enhance their weapons with various attachments during matches, a feature commonly seen in popular Battle Royale games like Apex Legends and first introduced to Fortnite in Chapter 5, Season 1. Here’s a detailed overview of how Weapon Mods operate in this season.

How to use Weapon Mods in Fortnite

Weapon Mods can be used in Fortnite by using Mod Benches that are contained inside Weapon Bunkers spread across the new map.

Once inside, you can head over to the Weapon Mod Bench located inside the bunker. Upon reaching closer to it, press the use button to open the mod menu and customize your weapon.

You can buy mods using gold bars in Fortnite.

Mods are available for several weapons in exchange for Gold Bars. You can add up to four different weapon attachments Optic, Barrel, Magazine, and Underbarrel. However, saving up on your gold bars would be wise as not every mod works with every weapon.

Moreover, you can also acquire weapons from a loot chest which will already have a mod installed to it. Different weapons across several rarities will have a fixed number of mods attached to it already:

  • Uncommon Rarity Weapon – One pre-installed Weapon Mod.
  • Rare Rarity Weapon – Two pre-installed Weapon Mods.
  • Epic Rarity Weapon – Three pre-installed Weapon Mods.
  • Legendary Rarity Weapon – Four pre-installed Weapon Mods.

Although some weapons will already be modded, you can still replace the attachments using a Mod Bench and choose your preferred mod. Also, bear in mind that mod-compatible weapons aren’t for sale from Characters or Vending Machines, so make sure to keep an eye out for loot.
