Crafting and modding gear is incredibly important in Outriders, particularly for those that want to deal as much damage as possible. But how do you equip mods? 

The alien-infested lands of Outriders are home to some incredibly dangerous enemies and you’ll need your wits about you in order to survive. While the game’s early weapons and armor will enable you to melt your way through weaker fleshy hordes, they can lack the punch of the Outriders’ best Legendary weapons

Just like most looter shooters, Outriders features hundreds of weapon and armor mods that players can use to increase their lethality. From shots that inflict Bleed on an enemy to deadly armor-piercing, there is a huge amount of variety when it comes to creating the perfect set.

The best Outriders mods can give you a huge edge over your enemies.

It’s important to note that only one slot can be modded, while multiple mods with the same name don’t stack. Once a mod has been placed into a weapon or armor slot, you’ll only be able to change the mod that you slotted in.
