The encumbrance penalty can be annoying when you are far from your base with a full inventory. Luckily there are mods you can equip to your armor to make this less of a hassle. The triple storage pocket mod will add a +3 carrying capacity each equipped to. Scavenging has never been more fun.

8. Water Purifier Mod

But I don't want to purify it!

The water purifier mod is an excellent addition to any helmet. When this is installed, you can drink any water without the fear of getting adverse status effects like dysentery. No one likes drinking from a toilet, but desperate times call for desperate measures. 

Why Water Purifier Mod is a must-have:

  • Can be looted
  • Great for those times you need water and don't have any clean.
  • Can be crafted from Forged steel, scrap polymers, duct tape, coal, and sewing kit after reading the schematic

5. Helmet Light Mod

But I don't want to wear a mining helmet!

In the dark world of Navezgane, you can never have too much light. The nights can get extremely dark, and carrying a torch while trying to mine isn't fun. Miming helmets are great if you find one, but you are limited to one helmet. The Helmet Light Mod can turn any helmet into a flashlight. Having a light, you don't have to carry a fantastic convenience.

Why Helmet Light Mod is fun:

  • Can attach to any helmet
  • Can be found via looting or the trader
  • It can also be crafted with Forged Steel, Scrap Polymers, Duct Tape, Flashlight, and Sewing Kit after reading the schematic or Art of Mining Vol.7

4. Bandolier Mod

I can take it from here.

You can never shoot fast enough when a feral is running at you. The worst part is when you need to reload while it's hunting you. The Bandolier Mod will allow you to reload your guns faster so you can spend more time nailing that perfect headshot. It can be equipped to your chest or leg armor.

Why Bandolier Mod is a must-have:

  • Faster reloading for your guns
  • It can be found while scavenging, or if you're lucky, the trader may have one to sell.
  • Craft this bad boy with Forged Steel, Scrap Polymers, Duct Tape, Glue, and Sewing Kit after you read the Bandolier Schematic.

3. Impact Bracing Mod

I think I can jump off of that!

OK, so this might just be me, but I also end up running over a cliff or running to fast down a hill and getting too much air. I have also died this way too. While it’s not fun to admit, at least there is an answer to this problem. The Impact Bracing Mod will help your character to take less damage while falling. 

Why Impact Bracing Mod will help you out:

  • Reduce damage taken when falling
  • Can be found while scavenging
  • Crafting is also an option using Forged steel, duct tape, mechanical parts, spring, and sewing kit at a workbench once you have read the schematic.

2. Skull Cap Mod

At least my head isn't cold.

Helmets and any type of head armor are fantastic to have in 7 days. One of the issues you will find is that there isn't much protection from the elements with them. The Skull Cap Mod can help keep your head warm and make your helmet look like a cool cap. 

Why Skull Cap Mod is fun:

  • Adds 10.5 - 13.2 Cold resistance 
  • It also grants a bit of heat resistance 1.5 - 2.5
  • It is a rare item and can only be found by looting!

  • Significantly decreases movement and stamina penalties from armor
  • Can be crafted after reading Customized Fittings Mod Schematic
