Destiny 2 weapon mods will be awarded for completing various in-game activities, ranging from completing quests and raids to finding the right vendor or decrypting the right engram. Mods are particularly useful if you want to add Power level to your Legendary gear, adding a possible +5 using a Legendary Mod, especially as you hit 280; this is when you can acquire Legendary Mods easily by trading your regular Rare mods with Banshee-44 as well as change the Energy type of your weapons, if you so choose. You have to hit Power Level 280 in order to even buy any of the Legendary mods, which is a huge grind in itself.
So much so, that some armor mods change how well your weapon works, synergizing with them in different ways and giving you the edge in the heat of the battle. It's important to note that despite using Mods to enhance your power level, your weapon and armor drops will scale accordingly to your base power level stats. However, you can still put your own touch on most gear thanks to mods. In other words I help partners grow their channel. These also scale all the way to the max level cap.

My Does Not Compute scout rifle which I got on my Hunter dropped at 281 but it had an empty mod slot, I knew I could get this to 286 if only I could get a Weapon Attack Mod for a kinetic weapon. Since Engrams are at a fixed level we wouldn't recommend holding onto them for this quest, but if you are one or two steps away from getting there, it's something to keep in mind. I'll probably switch to 3 grenade and 2 kinetic reload.

Mobility, Resilience and Recovery mods The resilience, mobility and recovery mods are pretty straight forward and are of most use for min-maxing.

For example, you can install Mods that allow you to reload your kinetic weapons faster, absorb more damage, change a gun's elemental properties, or even recharge grenades faster.
