Almost every weapon in Fallout 76 is able to be modified by attaching various modifications. Each modification will impact how the weapon performs, and some provide a visual change. The most desirable of these mods are legendary effects. These mods cannot be crafted onto or removed from a weapon, but grant significant bonuses.

All weapons in Fallout 76 have a randomly generated condition bar, which visualizes the maximum durability of the weapon. Weapons of the same type may have a different almount of current condition and a different condition bar length. Weapon modifications may influence the length of the condition bar. Player characters with higher Intelligence can craft weapons with larger durability bars. Players with higher Luck can influence the current condition of found weapons.

Additionally, a weapon's level determines the base damage output and maximum condition bar of the weapon. An example would be the combat rifle having a base damage increase by increments of 4 between level 20 and 50 leaving an unmodified level 50 combat rifle to have an additional 12 base damage over the level 20 counterpart and having a slightly longer condition bar. Higher level weapons also have higher craft and repair costs.
