How to Get the Handgun Extended Magazine Weapon Mod

While all the other mods can be accessed through fairly straightforward means, the Extended Magazine for the Handgun is something of a secret challenge that can only be unlocked at a specific time. To get it, you'll have to confront Nemesis in the early Downtown area as Jill, and have both a lot of ammo and a grenade. When you're ready, do the following.

  1. Find Nemesis. Make sure you're on high health and there aren't too many zombies around. If you want to be doubly secure, do it close to a safe room.
  2. Damage Nemesis to the point where he staggers and falls to one knee. You'll almost certainly need the shotgun for this; pour damage into him and stay out of reach of his attacks.
  3. Once he's staggered, back away to a safe distance and throw a grenade. You've got maybe twenty seconds to do this before he recovers.
  4. The grenade will actually blast some kind of storage crate off him and stagger him all over again. Grab the crate and run!
  5. The crate can be opened in your inventory by examining it. Once opened, you'll get the Extended Magazine.

How to Use and Equip Weapon Mods

Once you have a weapon mod, you can attach it permanently to a compatible weapon by having both in your inventory and combining them, as you would with two crafting ingredients. This effect is permanent and irreversible.
