How to Mod Each Weapon


Modifying a weapon properly involves more than simply trying to max out the DPS number. A weapon with high DPS seems great but it is useless if the recoil is so severe that you cannot accurately hit your target. Certain weapons are notorious for their recoil behavior such as the strong vertical rise of an AK74 or the left/right bounce of the Vector. While the accuracy stat is known for “artificially inflating” your character sheet DPS it does have real value since your bullet spread will be tighter and you will be less likely to miss shots. With a sniper, such as the M1A, accuracy will return your crosshair to center noticeably faster which will enable rapid follow-up shots thereby increasing your DPS.


Weapon Attachment Stats


Stability – reduces vertical recoil
Horizontal Stability – reduces left/right recoil
Initial Bullet Stability – reduce recoil on first trigger pull
Accuracy – reduces crosshair spread (allows for higher rate of fire)
Crit Chance – increases critical chance
Crit Hit Damage – increases damage from critical hits
Headshot Damage – increases headshot damage
Reduced Threat – decreases likelihood of enemy attacking you (currently not useful)
Increased Threat – increases likelihood of enemy attacking you (currently not useful)
Magazine (in order of priority for all guns)
  1. Magazine Size
  2. Weapon Damage
  3. Crit Chance
  4. Critical Hit Damage
  5. Reload Speed
  6. Rate of Fire

The only exception to the rule for magazine selection occurs when using LMGs. Since they have such a large magazine by default you may prefer to go with Weapon Damage/Crit Chance or Weapon Damage/Reload Speed. Rate of Fire is not recommended since recoil will become less controllable causing you to miss shots.


Attachment Stat Priority


The first priority in modifying a weapon is making the weapon easier to control which will increase your DPS by allowing you to land more shots on target. The second priority is to boost your weapons damage. Each weapon requires a different mod stat priority based on its recoil behavior and weapon type. For example, Marksman Rifles benefit more from crit chance since they have passive headshot damage while SMGs benefit more from headshot damage since they have passive crit chance. Below is a list of the stats you should prioritize (in order) to get the most out of each weapon:


Vector
  1. Horizontal Stability
  2. Headshot Damage
  3. Accuracy
  4. Crit chance
M1A
  1. Accuracy
  2. Crit chance
  3. Initial Bullet Stability
  4. Stability
AUG
  1. Accuracy
  2. Headshot Damage
  3. Crit Chance
  4. Stability
MP5
  1. Accuracy
  2. Headshot Damage
  3. Crit Chance
  4. Stability
AK74
  1. Stability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Crit Chance
  4. Headshot Damage
M44
  1. Crit Chance
  2. Headshot Damage
  3. Stability
  4. Accuracy
