Faction Damage Mods increase damage done to all enemy types of the corresponding faction, including bosses. It is calculated as a total damage multiplier against the faction in question.

Faction mods increase the weapon's raw damage, and is apply a second time to damage over time (DoT) from status effects created by it, known as "double dipping". For complete mechanics see Status Effect.

There are a total of 16 regular faction mods, each having a primed variant. 4 mods (IconGrineerOn.png Grineer, IconCorpusOn.png Corpus, Infestation w.svg Infested, and IconOrokinOn.png Corrupted) for each of the 4 main weapon types (Rifle, Shotgun, Pistol and Melee). Damage is increased by 5% per rank, up to 30% for regular mods and 55% for primed ones. The base equip cost of each mod is 4 and they all have a Madurai Pol.svg polarity. Damage of Sacrificial mods is the same type as other faction mods.

Grineer, Corpus, and Infested faction mods have no effect on their Corrupted or IconNarmer.png Narmer counterparts. For example, Mod TT 20px.png Bane of Grineer will work on Lancer but not on Corrupted Lancer or Narmer Lancer.
