Defiance Weapon Mods Guide



Defiance Weapon Mods Guide by JxSiN

Hey guys, I thought of making this guide to help us know which mods do what since every one has a different name and it can sometimes be confusing (i.e. Perimeter vs Proximity for Detonators, etc) plus not all the same bonuses can be found for every weapon.

This list is in alphabetical order and currently does not have the tier levels available (I, II, III). Remember, not all mods come in all 3 tiers, and some tier II mods are actually blue and not green (anyone with a pistol will attest to that).
