This, along with the seasonal mods (both artifact and non) have really been expanding the RPG elements of Destiny. It is clear that we are going in a “mod”-oriented direction. I believe this can be a great thing in the long run as long as it continues to improve in the right ways. Following this trend, I quickly did a mock-up concept of the “augment mod” slot on legendary weapons. This slot is reserved for mods catered towards each weapon type, rather than the “general” mods in the primary slot. The idea is that these mods can be powerful enough to change the way you use a weapon. Therefore, I feel it would be best for these to drop from endgame sources, where fresh loot is much needed. The mods should be rare and also come with a cost to use (enhancement mats possibly?), in order to balance out their power. Note: I know my proposed cost of applying the mod may be controversial and there are definitely alternate options in terms of which currencies to use. Furthermore, having the option to add an additional mod can make some natural weapon perks much less of a necessity (rampage, outlaw, you all know the rest...) I feel if something like this were ever to be implemented, about 3 mods per weapon type would feel about right in terms of variety and filling the loot pool.

Hmm.. Anyway I can delete posts? This is oddly not gaining the traction I was hoping for so I may want to post at a later date instead of bumping constantly.
