Nano-Applicator is a rare Shotgun mod that increases status chance while aiming for a brief time after casting an ability.


Rank Status chance Duration Cost
0 +15% 1.5s 4
1 +30% 3s 5
2 +45% 4.5s 6
3 +60% 6s 7
4 +75% 7.5s 8
5 +90% 9s 9


  • Nano-Applicator is additive with similar mods. For example, a Strun Strun with a max rank Nano-Applicator and Mod TT 20pxShotgun Savvy will have a 7.5% × (1 + 90% + 90%) = 21% status chance.
  • Triggering the effect multiple times only resets the buff duration.


  • This mod will allow shotguns that have near 100% status with 4 dual stat mods to reach 100% when an ability is cast. These include the SyndicateSMHek Vaykor Hek, GrineerSparkGun Kohm, DETigris Tigris, and SyndicateNLTigris Sancti Tigris.
    • Along with Shotgun Savvy and 4 dual stat mods, this mod can allow the GrineerFlakCannon Drakgoon to reach 100% status before multishot.
      • This allows every pellet to proc a status effect, making a corrosive and blast build extremely effective against the grineer, removing armor with just a few shots, as an example.
  • Most builds will need to remove a mod in order to fit Nano-Applicator into their weapon properly. Mod TT 20pxBlaze can be removed and substituted for this mod as the resulting 100% status offers better stopping power versus heavy armor.
  • Going into Operator mode counts as an ability cast and therefore refreshes the buff.
