You’ll probably start to craft and receive skill mods at around level 11 in The Division 2. These mods allow you to increase the effectiveness of your skills, obviously a hugely important thing to do as the difficulty starts to ramp up. Problem is, you’ll need a certain Skill Power rating to equip skill mods, with rarer mods requiring a higher Skill Power. Let’s take a look at how to increase it.

How to Equip Skill Mods

Once you’ve reached the requirement Skill Power, you can start equipping Skill Mods. To do so, hover over the skill you want to mod in the Character Menu, then hold square/X. This will bring you to the modding page, which works in exactly the same way as with weapons and gear
