Modular Weapons are crafted from three components whose interchangeable parts can be mixed and matched to provide different stats and abilities. This allows a player to create a weapon with the features they desire using the provided component parts. They are first introduced as a game mechanic in Update 22.0.
Note that once the weapon is built, the individual components cannot be recovered.
Gilding[edit | edit source]
Gilding is a mechanic where players at Rank 3 of the appropriate Syndicate (e.g. The Quills for Amps) can reset their modular weapon's level back to 0 to add a Polarity (similar to Forma). In addition, players then can name their modular weapon; install Arcane Enhancements, Orokin Catalyst, and Focus Lens; earn Mastery Rank experience from releveling; and customize their weapon's colors.
