Modifications

This item has the following modification slots: Material and Misc. Modifications can be either crafted from materials or applied via mod kit. Most modifications can be learned from scrapping any piece of armor from this family (level, weight, body part is irrelevant). Some modifications can only be learned via plans; those are detailed under the requirements column. Some modifications are restricted behind Perks which is also detailed under requirements.

Material mods cannot be swapped between arms and legs, even though they cost the same and provide the same bonuses.
