Hi I'm a new player :) ! (EGO rating 540 or so :o !)

There is this one thing that I don't understand about modding item, specifically the way it displays stats on a card.

I want to mod this item by adding a barrel mod, as you can see the mod emplacement is there and empty :

So then i go into the salvage menu and add the barrel, and then it looks like this (in green is the barrel I want to add to the SMG) :

But then when I want to do the action it tells me it's going to overwrite a mod :confused: :

So i'm confused about 2 things :

- What is possibly going to get overwritten, meaning what stat am I going to loose ?

- Why doesn't it show on the original weapon card that the slot is not empty in the first place ?

Thanks in advance :) !

It's just a display error, it's not over writing anything. They forgot to put a different message there when the slot is empty.

and also it showing what the weapon will look like after you add the mod to it , if you pan down you will see the correct stat modified to what it would be if you continue and finish adding the mod

Well fine :) but also other times it says => "would you like to attach the mod" which should be the normal message, and there is says "overwrite" so that's why it's confusing...

See the first 3 mods I added were "attach", this one says "overwrite" instead so I was getting scared of loosing something, like the syphoning ability for example :o !

Well anyway, thanks for your answers guys :D !

It's because you have 3 other mods installed, they didn't add a different message there. When the gun is empty it doesn't say overwrite, but when it has other mods installed it will give that message. Just a display problem.
