How to Make Armor Mods in Soulmask

To begin crafting armor modifications, you’ll need to unlock them in the Knowledge & Technology menu (T on your keyboard). You can unlock the most basic armor mods in the Medium Craftsmanship tech and the more advanced options in the Advanced Craftsmanship tech.

Once you have those, you’ll have the recipes to start crafting them. However, you’ll also want to ensure you have the right crafting stations. You’ll need the Craftsman’s Bench and the Armor Forging Table to make them all of them. Here’s how to make them using a Building Workshop:

Crafting TableMaterials
Craftsman’s BenchRough Leather x5
Leather Rope x5
Hardwood Plank x5
Stone or Flint x24
Armor Forging TablePlank x19
Leather x10
Thin Rope x10

After you place these crafting benches down at your camp, you can interact with them to see all the mod options you can make. You can press the ‘other’ toggle at the top of the crafting list to narrow it down to just the mods.

Like always, you’ll need the correct ingredients to make the mods. Most of them will require some form of cotton, leather, hides, oils, etc. You’ll want to make sure you have the other crafting benches you need for this, like a Loom and a Tanning Rack. Then, you can start collecting all the items you need.

All Armor Mod Crafting Recipes

All the armor mods are helpful in their own way, providing extra defense or resistance to extreme temperatures or poisons. However, if you’re looking for the very best of armor mods to use, I would recommend the following:

  • Damage Reduction Mod 2
  • Defense Mod 3
  • Gear Durability Mod 2

These are the best mods because they will provide you with the most base protection and keep your gear from breaking a lot longer than the others. They are also the most advanced of the mods, so if you don’t have the means to craft them yet, start from the lesser ones and work your way up.

Here’s how you can make all of them:

How to Equip Armor Mods

Once you have your armor mods made, you can start applying them to your armor. All you need to do is find it in your inventory and then drag it onto the armor you want it to apply to.

When it’s applied, you’ll see the icon on top of your armor icon in your inventory. Just like weapon mods, they don’t last forever. If your armor breaks or you repair the armor, the mod will be removed. You can also only have one mod on it at a time. Once you place the mod, you can’t remove it. If you want to replace it, you can drag a different mod on top of it.

Modding your armor is a great way to stay better protected while you explore the dangerous world. Try to stay stocked up on them so you can keep applying them as much as possible. You can even switch them out to suit your playstyle, concealment for sneaking and hunting, or full defense for raiding a dungeon or barracks. They will help a lot!
