As you might realise sometimes, some slots have a sign for example “V”/”D”. These are polarised slots if you put a mod of the same polarity the mod will drain half of the capacity it requires. The polarity of a mod is found on the top right of a mod.


Every mod has nine attributes attached to them

  1. Mod Name: Name of the mod
  2. Capacity, Drain and Polarity: In the example, you can see that the mod has a drain of 4 and double dash polarity.
  3. Rank of the mod: The blue dots below the card denotes how much the mod has been upgraded.
  4. Mod Compatibility: Denotes the compatibility of a mod, what the mod can be equipped on. The example mod can be equipped on Vauban.
  5. Conclave Rating: The value of the mod in conclave matches.
  6. Duplicate Count: The number of same mods that you have in your inventory.
  7. Aura/Stance Sign: Denotes if the mod can be put in the Aura/Stance Slot. The Aura/Stance mod can’t be inserted in normal slots.
  8. Rarity: Shows the rarity of a mod. The colours are bronze for common, silver for an uncommon mod, gold for rare and white for legendary mods.

Special Types of Mods

Stance Mods

Stance Mods are mods specially made for melee weapons, these mods increase the capacity of the weapon and also give unique attack combos to the user. Only one stance mod can be equipped on a weapon at once.

Also, the stance has to be compatible with the melee weapon type. For example Vengeful Revenant only works with swords such as Skana, Broken War, Dakra Prime.

Nightmare Mods

Nightmare Mods are dual stat mods that can be obtained by completing nightmare mode missions.

Aura Mods

Aura Mods are Waframe mods that can be used to increase the total mod capacity. Similar to stance mods these mods can only be equipped on the Aura slot. One better thing about aura mods is that they stack with other players, so if all players are bringing corrosive projection to a mission, the enemies won’t have any armor at all.
