One of Far Cry 6‘s newest additions are the mods which can be equipped on your weapons and Supremo backpacks. These mods provide a number of bonuses for your gear, including boosting your damage against armour, allowing you to hold more ammo and equipment, among others.

But, because there are literally dozens of mods in the game, you can be spoilt for choice, leaving you unsure of what you should equip and purchase with your materials. This is especially true when it comes to weapons with a lot of mods, such as Rifles and Light Machine Guns.

Luckily, we have spent hours with Far Cry 6, playing around with the best weapons in the game and the mods for them. As such, we have come up with a pretty detailed overview of the best mods in Far Cry 6, which you can read in full below.

Far Cry 6 best mods

Here are the best mods in Far Cry 6, split across each of the weapon types and Supremo mod slots.

Far Cry 6 Best Mods: The Supremo backpack mod screen from the workbench menu.

Supremo Mods

  • Gadget Mods: Healing Canister (1 star) Sticky Grenade (3 star), Pipe Bomb (4 star), Pipe Bomb (4 star), Auto-Turret (4 star), Remote EMP Charge (4 star)
  • Supremo Socket: Minor Armor Piercing Protection (1 star), Healing Factor (3 star), Bounce Back (3 star), Advanced Blast Gadget Pocket (4 star)
  • Supremo Charger Socket: Sharpshooter (3 star), Resolver Synergy (3 star)

This selection of Supremo mods are what we have found to work best, with some flexibility for how you want to play. For example, if you are on the game’s harder difficulty, you might want to use the healing canister, instead of one of the explosives.

However, the slots for Supremo Charger Socket and the Supremo Socket are pretty much set in stone and will help boost your ability to take on Castillo’s forces and survive.

Pistol Mods

  • Ammo Socket: Armor Piercing Rounds (1 star), Blast Rounds (3 star)
  • Muzzle Socket: Large Rectangular Suppressor (4 star)
  • Optical Socket: Resolver Reflex Sight (1 star), Resolver Reflex Sight MK. 2 (4 star)
  • Pointer Socket: Resolver Laser Pointer Mk. 2 (4 star)
  • Mods: Keep It Cool (3 star), Vampiric Triada (4 star), Headshot Supremo (4 star)

The Pistol mods are fairly traditional. Make use of a suppressor if you are playing stealthily and switch to Armor Piercing Rounds and Vampiric Triada if you are opting for a more aggressive run-and-gun loadout.

Auto-Pistol Mods

  • Ammo Socket: Armor Piercing Rounds (1 star), Blast Rounds (3 star)
  • Muzzle Socket: Small Compensator (3 star)
  • Optical Socket: Resolver Reflex Sight (1 star), Resolver Reflex Sight MK. 2 (4 star)
  • Pointer Socket: Resolver Laser Pointer Mk. 2 (4 star)
  • Mods: Keep It Cool (3 star), Vampiric Triada (4 star), Headshot Supremo (4 star)

Much like the Pistol Mods, the mods for the Auto-Pistol are pretty much the same. However, you don’t want to run a suppressor. Instead, opt for the small compensator and generally stick to Armor Piercing Rounds, rather than Blast Rounds apart from in a few select situations where you need to deal a lot of damage.

Rifle Mods

  • Ammo Socket: Armor Piercing Rounds (1 star), Blast Rounds (3 star)
  • Muzzle Socket: Compensator (3 star), Resolver Suppressor MK. 2 (4 star)
  • Optical Socket: Red Dot Sight (2 star), Resolver Reflex Sight (4 star)
  • Canted Sights Socket: Canted Reflex Sight (4 star)
  • Pointer Socket: Resolver Laser Pointer Mk. 2 (4 star)
  • Mods: Keep It Cool (3 star), Vampiric Triada (4 star), Headshot Supremo (4 star)

Rifles are where you can be a bit more flexible with your choices. If you are playing stealthily, make use of the Resolver Suppressor MK. 2 and the Headshot Supremo mod. But, if a Rifle isn’t your designated stealth weapon, choose the Compensator and Keep It Cool mods.

Submachine Gun Mods

  • Ammo Socket: Armor Piercing Rounds (1 star), Blast Rounds (3 star)
  • Muzzle Socket: Compensator (3 star), Resolver Suppressor MK. 2 (4 star)
  • Optical Socket: Red Dot Sight (2 star), Resolver Reflex Sight (4 star)
  • Pointer Socket: Resolver Laser Pointer Mk. 2 (4 star)
  • Mods: Keep It Cool (3 star), Vampiric Triada (4 star), Headshot Supremo (4 star)

Submachine gun mods are pretty much the same as your Rifle mods. The weapons are quite similar in how they play, so don’t go for anything too out of the ordinary.

Light Machine Guns Mods

  • Ammo Socket: Armor Piercing Rounds (1 star), Blast Rounds (3 star)
  • Muzzle Socket: Compensator (3 star)
  • Optical Socket: Red Dot Sight (2 star), Resolver Reflex Sight (4 star)
  • Pointer Socket: Resolver Laser Pointer Mk. 2 (4 star)
  • Mods: Keep It Cool (3 star), Vampiric Triada (4 star), Headshot Supremo (4 star).

Light machine guns are where you should focus on heavy damage output. Ideally, you should be choosing Armor Piercing Rounds, the Compensator (don’t run a suppressor) and Vampiric Triada to ensure you are getting the most in return for your damage output.

Sniper Rifle Mods

  • Ammo Socket: Armor Piercing Rounds (1 star), Blast Rounds (3 star)
  • Muzzle Socket: X-Large Classic Suppressor (3 star), None
  • Optical Socket: Resolver Sniper Scope MK. 2 (4 star), Resolver ACOG Sight (4 star)
  • Canted Sights Socket: Canted Reflex Sight (4 star)
  • Pointer Socket: Resolver Laser Pointer Mk. 2 (4 star)
  • Mods: Keep It Cool (3 star), Vampiric Triada (4 star), Headshot Supremo (4 star)

Sniper Rifles require the most changes to your mod formula. The best mods in Far Cry 6 for these long-range weapons include the Resolver Sniper Scope MK. 2 if you are playing from a distance and the Resolver ACOG Sight if you are shooting from a closer range. If you want to shoot from the bushes, you can use the X-Large Classic Suppressor, but just be wary that it will affect your damage output.

Far Cry 6 Best Mods: the shotgun mod screen from the workbench.

Shotgun Mods

  • Ammo Socket: Armor Piercing Rounds (1 star), Blast Rounds (3 star)
  • Muzzle Socket: None
  • Optical Socket: Red Dot Sight (2 star), Resolver Reflex Sight (4 star)
  • Pointer Socket: Resolver Laser Pointer Mk. 2 (4 star)
  • Mods: Keep It Cool (3 star), Vampiric Triada (4 star), Headshot Supremo (4 star)

Shotgun mods in Far Cry 6 are relatively simple. Go with what are the best mods for all the other weapons in the game. Just make sure you don’t choose a muzzle mod as none of them are that great.

Bow Mods

  • Ammo Socket: Precision Arrows (3 star), Blast Arrows (3 star)
  • Optical Socket: Reflex Bow Sight (2 star), Crosshair Sight (3 star)
  • Mods: Vampiric Triada (4 star), Headshot Supremo (4 star)

Bow mods are more limited than other weapons. Ideally, you should be using Precision Arrows if you are looking to be stealthy or Blast Arrows if you want to cause a lot of destruction. Either of the sights mentioned above will do, as well.

Launcher Mods

  • Ammo Socket: Standard Grenades (0 star)
  • Launcher Mods Socket: Gunslinger (Launcher) (2 star), High Ground (Launcher) (2 star), Lock On (3 star), Trigger Disciple (Launcher) (3 star)

These launcher mods shouldn’t come as a surprise. If you are using a grenade launcher, go with Standard Grenades. Otherwise, for the mods socket, choose the Lock On option if you have it and the Gunslinger mod to help you move and switch weapons faster.

That covers the best mods in Far Cry 6 for each of the weapon types and your Supremo backpacks. For more tips on Ubisoft’s latest open-world adventure, be sure to check out our Far Cry 6 walkthrough.
