How to Mod Weapons and Armor in Outriders

You can mod weapons and armor in Outriders by speaking to Dr. Zahedi, the same NPC who helps you raise the rarity and level of your equipment.

He’ll appear at your camp after you’ve completed the Salvation main story mission. If you haven’t reached this point in the game yet, take some time to focus on story progression.

Once he appears in your camp, he can be found in a small shop that you’ll use to mod weapons and armor in Outriders. It’ll be indicated on your map by an icon that shows a screwdriver and wrench crossed into an X.
