In this post we will give you a short guide to weapon modding which you will have to do at some point in the game. The reason you will need to mod your weapons is to make sure they are powerful enough late in the game.
Modding weapons allow you to make your favourite guns even better. Before you can even start modding you will need a weapon that can be modded, a mod and an EGO rating of 100.
Before you get to 100 EGO rating you will be able to access the Salvage Matrix but it is only after a rating of 100 that you will be able to start added mod slots to weapons.
All you need to do is bring up the loadout screen and then select Savage Matrix.
You then have some options:
You can break the weapon down for resources and this will give you some ark salvage.
How much you get depends on the color/value of the weapon:
Another little tip is to make sure you break all weapons and grenades down that you will not use.
Before you mod a weapon remember that if you have it equipped you will not be able to mod it.
You then simply click on “Attach mods” and you will be presented with all the mods you have. There are 4 main types:
Stock, Barrel, Magazine and Scope
You can see how valuable the mods are by using the color code above and you will also have a roman numeral to the side of the mod that tells you how rare it is.
There are also synergies that we will talk about in a later post – for now make sure you break down all the weapons and grenades that you will not use to get the resources from them and then use those resources to mod your weapons.
