I've jumped into Fallout 76 with a burning desire to craft myself a nice rapid firing pipe pistol with a big drum magazine.
From what I can tell very limited weapon mods are available at the beginning & you need to unlock mods to improve your weapons. You also need perk cards to enable the more advanced unlocked mods.
So far I've been rewarded plans/recipes/mods for completing quests. I also think I've found a mod or two during general exploration looting.
My question: Is there a direct way to unlock mods for specific weapons?
For example does scrapping the same weapon type give access to mods? Can we purchase mods? Or swap mods with other players?
Any help appreciated.
