Class mods in Borderlands 3 have a name or suffix that will note the skills given by the class mod. Skills that are boosted by class mods will also be shown in the skill tree selection, listing the number of bonus points from the mod and the final percentages for the skill. It is possible to get up to three different skills boosted by a class mod.

Unlike previous titles, class mods will now grant all effects for any skills even if they have not been purchased, allowing for greater class diversification.

Legendary class mods grant a special effect when equipped, in addition to their skill and stats bonuses.

Skills

The rarity of a class mod determines how many skill bonuses are given:

  • Common - 1 skill bonus
  • Uncommmon - 2 skill bonuses
  • Rare - 3 skill bonuses
  • Epic - 5 skill bonuses
  • Legendary - 5 skill bonuses

These bonuses are split between three skills, with each skill getting between zero and five bonus points. Skills with three levels can receive a maximum of three bonus points, while skills with only one level can receive at most one bonus point.

Stat Bonuses

Unlike previous games, all class mods in Borderlands 3 give boosts to random stats. All class mods share the same pool of potential stat bonuses. Higher-level and higher-quality class mods have more and higher stat bonuses.

  • Common - 1 stat bonus or none
  • Uncommmon - 1 stat bonus
  • Rare - 1 or 2 stat bonuses
  • Epic - 2 stat bonuses
  • Legendary - 3 stat bonuses

Stat bonuses available on class mods can include:

  • Weapon Damage
  • Weapon Type Damage
  • Weapon Critical Damage
  • Weapon Accuracy
  • Weapon Handling
  • Weapon Fire Rate
  • Weapon Charge Speed
  • Weapon Magazine Size

  • Action Skill Cooldown Rate
