Where Do You Attach Weapon Mods in Fortnite?

If you’re hoping to start getting some Weapon Mods on your favorite guns, you’ll need to first get your hands on a Medallion. Once you have beaten a boss (for example, Peter Griffin at Snooty Steppes), you’ll earn a Medallion that showcases the location of a secret base. Inside this base, you’ll get the option to attach a weapon modification to your favorite gun. Not every weapon has modifications, so just be careful of what weapons you bring to this location.

Once you have obtained the Medallion, you’ll be guided toward the entrance of the Secret Base that corresponds with that particular medal. After approaching the door, you’ll need to wait for it to unlock, and you’ll find the Weapon Mod Bench hiding inside of the room, alongside some Weapon Cases that you can unlock.

To use the Weapon Bench, just approach it and use the Interact key that shows up on your screen, and you’ll be in the Mod Selection screen. Use the buttons shown on your console or PC to scroll through the available mods, and make your selections.

There are a variety of options available for Weapon Mods, including:

  • Optics
  • Clips
  • Grips
  • Suppressors

Each weapon will have its own unique variety of equippable mods, so pick and choose what you like, then press the Buy & Equip button to make your own special weapon. Just make sure that you know that you won’t get to bring this weapon to the next match, even if you do secure a Victory Royale.

Are Weapon Mods Worth the Effort in Fortnite?

Getting a Medallion can be hard work, especially if you’re newer to the game and are unsure of which bosses you need to defeat. Since they can regenerate their shields, you’ll need to keep a lot of offensive pressure on them to ensure that you can defeat them and claim their Medallion. You’ll also be put on the map for other players to find once you collect one, so keep that in mind as well.

Overall, Weapon Mods are absolutely worth the effort, especially since you can put plenty of unique ones on your favorite weapons and make them more overpowered than ever before. Finding these spots isn’t very difficult, so you’ll be ready to claim these mods quickly and painlessly, especially if you’ve already gotten a fair number of great weapons in your inventory.
