How to mod weapons in Dead Island 2

The process of modding weapons is incredibly straightforward. The first step involves getting your hands on a mod blueprint. These are rolled up and available to find at the vast majority of new workbenches you discover across Hell-A.

In addition to finding them across the map, some are available as rewards for completing missions and side quests.

Once you've obtained a blueprint, the next step is to visit a nearby workbench to see if you've got the materials needed to apply the upgrade.

Depending on the rarity of the mod, you'll need plenty of materials in order to perform the upgrade. Superior mods require more than an Uncommon mod but the increase in performance from a Superior blueprint is far greater.

Once you've decided on a mod for your weapon of choice, hold down the fabricate button for a few seconds to apply it.

Are mods worth using in Dead Island 2?

Definitely! The vast majority of mods provide some increase in damage which is hugely important when dealing with stronger undead opposition as you move through the game. It only takes a few seconds to complete, and the benefits make an instant impact.
