Destiny 2: 4 Best Mods

Destiny 2 has a wide variety of mods available for players to choose from. From mods that increase the amount of ammo you can carry to mods that increase your mobility when sprinting. There is something for everyone. So whether you’re crafting a build or searching for a great game-changing mod, we’ve got you covered.

Picking out the best mods Destiny 2 has to offer can be overwhelming. We’ve put together this list of the 4 best mods to help you make a better decision on what mods to pick to alter your gameplay.

 Best Armor Mods in Destiny 2

When it comes to armor in Destiny 2, it’s super important to make sure it fits your playstyle function-wise. So, we’ve picked out two of the very best armor mods. These mods change your gameplay and give you a significant advantage in combat.

  • Protective Light- The Protective Light mod is incredibly useful for increasing your protection when in combat. Protective Light grants you 50% damage resistance when your shields are broken by enemy damage. However, depending on the amount of Charged with Light stacks you have consumed, the duration of this damage resistance will vary.
  • Traction- The Traction mod is largely beneficial in close quarters combat. Traction will tighten your turn radius when sprinting and is excellent for increasing your mobility. This mod is especially useful on consoles and has been described as a mod that players swear by.

Best Weapon Mods in Destiny 2

Modding your weapon in Destiny 2 can make an immense difference to how you play. Picking weapon mods can make or break your build, which means it is crucial that you pick the right ones. Both Freehand Grip and Quick Access sling are versatile player favorites that had to be included in our list.

  • Freehand Grip- The Freehand Grip Mod is great for improving your firing accuracy. Freehand Grip will also increase your ready speed when firing from the hip using the Hipfire Perk. Additionally, players have noted that this mod has significantly increased their firing success and consistency in combat.
  • Quick Access Sling- The Quick Access Sling mod is excellent for tight situations, as it allows you to quickly switch weapons and keep the fight going. Quick Access sling will let you swap your weapons much faster for a couple of seconds after you fully empty your magazine. This mod is also particularly useful on bows, as shooting a single arrow will activate the effect. This will allow you to quickly finish off an enemy with your sidearm after inflicting damage with your bow.

While everyone has a different preference for mods in Destiny 2, this list will help you make up your mind on what mods to choose for your build or to alter your game.
