The Division will have you taking down groups of enemies in the streets of Manhattan. While you can grab some pretty high-end weapons by completing missions and venturing into the Dark Zone, sometimes you’ll need to make a couple of improvements to your weapons.
Whether it’s giving your weapons a sight, attaching extended mags or adding a silencer, your weapons can be changed and modified in a number of different ways. To modify your weapons, you’re first going to need these individual parts to add onto your weapon of choice. These parts can be found on enemies when they’re defeated, through completing missions, or through purchasing them from your base. Once you’ve acquired these items, you’ll be able to find them in your character’s inventory.
To add the attachment onto your weapon, open your character layout menu. Once here, move up to your weapon loadout and select the weapon you want to add the mod onto by hitting the X button on PS4 or A on Xbox One. When you’re into this menu, you’ll see slots next to each different corresponding part of the gun that you can add a modification onto. Find the slot that corresponds with the mod that you want to apply to your gun. Select the slot, choose your modification, and confirm it by pressing X/A. Congratulations, you’ve just applied your first mod to your weapon!
By mixing and matching a number of different mods to your weapon, you can tweak and adjust it for a number of different scenarios. Need to go in stealthy and pick your enemies off from a distance? Attach a scope with a high magnification and a silencer to your Assault Rifle to give you that undetected advantage. Or maybe you need to jump right into the middle of a firefight against a number of enemies. No worries, attach some extended mags and a red dot sight attachment to improve your accuracy at mid-close range.
The best players in The Division will use the weapon mods to their advantage to suit their style of play. Keep an eye out for loot drops from enemies and the mods that suit your style of play for sale from vendors to be the best agent you can be.
