Helmet Mods
1. Targeting Mods

Improved target acquisition, accuracy, and aim-down-sights speed for [weapon archetype].

Targeting mods cover an array of different weapon types, meaning you should simply pick whichever mod applies to the weapons you use.

These mods give you a nice boost to aim-assist and improve the overall handling of the weapon you apply it to. These are more suited to PvP.

How to Get Them:

You can get targeting mods by purchasing or earning rank-up packages from Banshee-44 in the Tower.

2. Hands-On

Gain bonus Super energy on melee kills.

Hands-On makes a good addition to a melee or Super-focused build.

How to Get Them:

You can get this mod in Legendary engrams or from rank-up packages from different factions.

Arm Mods
3. Fastball

Increases grenade throw distance.

Throw grenades farther. Not much else to say, it’s just a helpful mod when you want to maintain some distance or are too lazy to get closer to explode your enemies.

How to Get It:

You can get this mod in Legendary engrams or from rank-up packages from different factions.

4. Impact Induction

Causing damage with a melee attack reduces your grenade cooldown.

Impact Induction is great for grenade-focused builds, but it also synergizes well with melee mods.

How to Get It:

You can get this mod in Legendary engrams or from rank-up packages from different factions.

Chest Armor Mods
5. Ammo Reserves

Increases the amount of [weapon type] ammo you can carry.

Ammo reserves mods are specific to a weapon type, while you can use whatever you want, I recommend looking for the ones that are for heavy weapons, such as Machine Gun Reserves, Rocket Launcher Reserves, etc.

How to Get Them:

You can get Reserves mods by purchasing or earning rank-up packages from Banshee-44 in the Tower.

6. Concussive Dampener

Reduces incoming area-of-effect damage from combatants.

This mod is great for most activities as the most powerful attacks are area-of-effect damage. It reduces AOE damage by 25%.

How to Get It:

You can get this mod in Legendary engrams or from rank-up packages from different factions.

Leg Armor Mods
7. Recuperation

Replenishes health each time you pick up an Orb of Power.

These kinds of mods are crucial for team activities like dungeons and raids.

How to Get It:

You can get this mod in Legendary engrams or from rank-up packages from different factions.

8. Ammo Scavenger Mods

[Weapon type] get bonus reserves when you pick up ammo.

Ammo scavenger mods are helpful in PvE activities where you find yourself chewing through ammo. Scavenger mods are made for all weapons, so pick what you like. I recommend power and heavy weapons for obvious reasons.

How to Get Them:

You can get Scavenger mods by purchasing or earning rank-up packages from Banshee-44 in the Tower.

Class Armor Mods
9. Distribution

Reduces all ability cooldowns when using your class ability near enemies.

This is handy for when you’re in a tight spot, use your class ability to put yourself in relative safety while getting your abilities faster for when it’s time to go on the offense.

How to Get It:

You can get this mod in Legendary engrams or from rank-up packages from different factions.

10. Perpetration

Reduces class ability cooldown when using your class ability.

I know it’s a little weird, but Perpetration pairs well with Distribution, these mods let you have your abilities ready more often.

How to Get It:

You can get this mod in Legendary engrams or from rank-up packages from different factions.
