Borderlands 2 Class Mods Guide

Class Modifications Unit or simply COMs have made their return in Borderlands 2. These Borderlands 2 Class Mods greatly improve your character’s abilities and also have a dominant effect on your play style during the course of the game.

These mods have specific purposes and are designed to give a boost to your skills like reloading speed or the damage output of a single weapon.

Borderlands 2 Class Mods

Class mods can be obtained in several ways throughout the game.

  • They can be bought from medical vending machines.
  • Found in many of the lootable objects such as: Chests, skag piles or lockers.
  • As a reward from completing a mission.
  • Dropped by certain enemies when they are killed

Normally, you can only a lot five skill points to a skill, but if you find a particular class mod for that skill, you can get five more skill points into that skill making it super effective.

There are mods of different rarities and they have varying benefits:

  • White – No skill bonuses
  • Green – 1 skill bonus
  • Blue – 2 skill bonuses
  • Purple – 3 skill bonuses
  • Legendary – 5 or 6 skill bonuses, depending on class
