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, Mod TT 20px.pngAccelerated Blast can stack with Mod TT 20px.pngShotgun Spazz and Mod TT 20px.pngFlechette to give 150% Fire Rate and 90% Puncture Damage respectively.

Update 9.5 introduced 3 new Nightmare mode mods (Mod TT 20px.pngShred, Mod TT 20px.pngVigor, and Mod TT 20px.pngLethal 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 27th to November 1st, 2016) introduced 3 new Nightmare mods (Mod TT 20px.pngChilling Reload, Mod TT 20px.pngDrifting Contact, and Mod TT 20px.pngStreamlined Form) which were right away available to acquire in their respective nightmare missions.

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