Weapon Mods in The Division can be added to Weapons or changed to improve or add new effects. They have different qualities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary.

Muzzles can affect the Accuracy, Stability, Critical hit damage, imroved or reduced Threat (suppressors), Horizontal or First shot recoil of the Weapon.
