What are modules?[startclear] [postad]
Modules are pieces of gear that you can add onto weapons or abilities. There are weapons modules, which slot into weapons; and there are ability modules, which slot into your abilities. These equipment modules can modify your weapon’s rate of fire, damage, or you abilities cooldown.Weapons and abilities have slots, which typically depend on their quality (there are exceptions):[stopclear]
|Weapon or ability quality||Slots|
|Uncommon (green)||Red, Yellow|
|Rare (blue), Epic (purple), and Legendary (yellow)||Red, Yellow, Blue|
There are six types of modules for weapons and for abilities:
|Module||Slots||Weapons modules||Ability modules|

Some weapons and abilities have hidden modules, which are additional bonuses granted to the weapon or ability. These hidden modules do not take up a slot on the weapon or ability. Cooled, Enraged, etc. is added to the beginning of a weapon’s or ability’s name to indicate its hidden module.
Press p or open the Battleframe Garage and click and drag from your inventory to your weapon or ability.
You can remove the module from a piece from a weapon or ability to equip on another piece of gear. Right-click and Examine the piece of gear.
And click “Unslot module”. It costs Credits to unslot a module, which you can get by converting crystite or selling items or red beans on the market (press t to open the market).
