Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 Weapon Mods Explained

The Fortnite news cycle has been kicked into overdrive since players have been able to dive into the new season, which is titled Fortnite Underground.

With this new season, comes new features for players, and weapon mods are finally making their way into the game after being leaked for over two years.

Players will be able to fully customize their weapons throughout the game, including the type of magazine they have, alongside other modifications.

Here’s what Epic has had to say regarding this.

“Customize your loadout” now has a whole new meaning. Located in vaults are Mod Benches, which have mods available for many weapons in exchange for Bars. Add mods that reduce recoil, increase mag capacity, and more! Save up your Bars wisely, though, as not every mod works with every weapon.

Fortnite Weapon Mods

You don’t need a Mod Bench to wield a modded weapon. In fact, most mod-compatible weapons are already modded! If it’s of Uncommon rarity, it’ll already have one mod. If it’s of Rare rarity, it’ll have two mods. Epic rarity, three mods. And Legendary, four. If you want different mods than the ones that came with your weapon, you can still replace them at Mod Benches in exchange for Bars. Experiment with different combos to see what’s best for you!

Mod-compatible weapons aren’t for sale from Characters or Vending Machines, so keep your eyes peeled for loot.
