“Customize your loadout” now has a whole new meaning. Located in vaults are Mod Benches, which have mods available for many weapons in exchange for Bars. Add mods that reduce recoil, increase mag capacity, and more

Save up your Bars wisely, though, as not every mod works with every weapon.

— Battle Royale Chapter 5 Season 1 Blog Post


Weapon Mods are a feature in Fortnite: Battle Royale. They were introduced in Chapter 5: Season 1. Each weapon mod adds a certain perk to the weapon such as reducing recoil, increasing magazine size, adding magnification when aiming down sights, among others. Weapon mods come in four categories: Optic, Magazine, Underbarrel, and Barrel. They can be obtained at Mod Benches in exchange for Bars. It costs 75 Bars to add or switch any attachment. There is no cost to remove an attachment. The name of the player who modified the weapon will be displayed on the inventory.

Mod Benches[]

Mod Bench - Bench - Fortnite

Mod Benches are found all over the Helios island, particularly in vaults. The benches are marked on the map, to highlight their location. Mod Benches cannot be destroyed. A mod bench allows a player to apply Weapon Mods to their Weapons. Modifying allows players to adjust the optic, foregrip, etc on their weapon, if it supports modding, for the cost of 75 Bars per weapon. All vaults that require a Medallion to open will always have a Mod Bench inside, and any vault that requires a Keycard has a small chance of spawning a Mod Bench.

Note: Loot Island is the only location a Mod Bench can be found that is not a Vault.

  • The inside of Weapons Bunkers. Located around Helios. Different Weapons Bunkers will be locked up in matches.

Strategy[]

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite
This section outlines a strategy.
Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.


  • It is key to have loadouts that you are familiar with. Otherwise you could end up in a gunfight and not be familiar with your loadout, putting you at a disadvantage.
  • It is best to mod your weapons on higher rarities if possible.
  • Using the Laser Mod on a Thunder Burst SMG will make it extremely accurate while hipfiring.
  • Modding your Assault Rifles with a vertical foregrip will make them more accurate in ADS, which is preferred if your Assault Rifle has an optic.
  • Putting a suppressor on long range weapons (Such as the Huntress DMR or Reaper Sniper Rifle) can help you to remain undetected.
