Mods can be applied directly to a base node, and when placed, will benefit the individual bots placed on the same node. All mods have abilities that can be improved by ranking up.
Each mod has a tier, rank, and level. You can see this information by tapping on your BOTS tab on your home screen, tapping on the MODS tab, and opening the information panel by tapping on specific mods.
Mods that have been applied to a base node will be marked as "placed" in your inventory. Mods that can be ranked up will also display an icon.
Tiers range from 1-star to 4-stars and cannot be changed. The higher the tier of the mod, the better the benefit of the mod to your bot.
Levels and Ranks Can Be Increased
Levels increase the power of a mod, while ranks increase the max level of a mod. For example, your mod can reach level 10 at rank 1 and level 20 at rank 2. The level cap is always ten times as much as the rank number.
Maximum rank for each tier:
1-Star: Rank 2
2-Star: Rank 3
3-Star: Rank 4
4-Star: Rank 4
Maximum levels for each rank:
Rank 1: 10 (1-star to 4-stars)
Rank 2: 20 (1-star to 4-stars)
Rank 3: 30 (2-stars to 4-stars)
Rank 4: 40 (3-stars to 4-stars)
