Starfield Research Module Interaction

Starfield Mods

Let’s take a look at what Starfield Mods might look like, and how they could be used to improve gameplay.

The first new intellectual property developed by Bethesda Game Studios in 25 years, Starfield is a hotly anticipated AAA single player, action role playing game which takes place across the vastness of space. This space exploration game will have many of the typical Bethesda game hallmarks – a robust main story and side quests, elaborate character creation, and an extraordinary amount of exploration. 


Starfield Mods

Mods are components which the player can use to enhance or change their gear and weapons in game. In some games, doing so can cause the change to be permanent, while other games have mechanics which allow the player to change their mind and switch out augmentations later on.

Weaponry is one of the five main categories of Research available in Starfield. We haven’t been shown all of the many research projects which will be available in the game, but at least one of the gameplay trailers gives us a quick look at a several of the available mods:

  • Barrel Mods 1
  • Barrel Mods 2
  • Grip Mods 1
  • Grip Mods 2
  • Grip Mods 3
  • Optics and Sights Mods 1
  • Optics and Sights Mods 2
  • Optics and Sights Mods 3
  • Muzzle Mods 1
  • Muzzle Mods 2

Mods should be available through purchase from merchants, as quest rewards, drops from enemies, and built through crafting. No specific details on any of the augmentations for Starfield have been released, but we’ll be updating this page with relevant information as soon as we have it.
