Nightmare Mode Mods are dual stat mods added in Update 9.0 along with Nightmare Mode. Currently the following Mods can only be gained by playing in Nightmare Mode. These mods are generally weaker than their single counterparts, but they can stack. For example, Accelerated Blast can stack with Shotgun Spazz and Flechette to give 150% Fire Rate and 90% Puncture Damage respectively.

Update 9.5 introduced 3 new Nightmare mode mods (Shred, Vigor, and Lethal Torrent) as rewards for the weekend event Arid Fear. These were later added to regular Nightmare mode missions as rewards.

The Recurring Nightmares update for Halloween (October 27 - November 1, 2016) introduced 3 new Nightmare mods (Chilling Reload, Drifting Contact, and Streamlined Form) which were right away available to acquire in their respective nightmare missions.

During the Nightmare Weekend event (August 23. - 26. 2013), the 10 original Nightmare mode mods were also rewarded from special Alerts with a mission description of "Nightmare Mod Located".
