In Predator: Fireteam the weapons you equip your character in the Fireteam can be customized. As you progress through the game earning XP your chosen weapons will level up and can be enhanced further by adding mods. Check out our Fireteam Weapon Mods guide to find out more about the four unique categories these mods fall into.
Barrels allow you to use the normal barrel or equip a Suppressor on it to silence your shots.
Magazines allow you to increase your ammo capacity for the weapon. You can switch between the normal magazine or extended magazines.
Optics are your eyes on the gun. These mods enhance your viewing capacity while using the weapons. These range from normal Iron Sights or Holographic Sights to advanced zoom level Optics such as 6X Scope or 10X scope.
Shaders are just weapon skins and are only good for aesthetics. They do not have any sort of impact on how the weapons are used.
