If you really want your weapons and armor to stand out in Fallout 76, you need the ones with legendary modifiers.
While I am not 100% sure that these should be called legendary modifiers or just “very rare and hard to get” weapon or armor types, since everybody refers to them as “legendary,” that is how we’ll call them!
And today I am here to put all these Fallout 76 Legendary modifiers on one list so that you can check it out and know what special effect your weapons and armor can get.
Right now, I am pretty much certain that the list itself is incomplete, but hopefully you’ll be able to chip in with a legendary modifier or two in case you find some that are not listed below.
These legendary mods are easy to spot in the game after collecting them, as they add a special word – usually describing the effect – before the weapon’s or armor’s name. Those are the actual modifiers that we’re talking about today.
With these in mind, let’s check out the list of legendary modifiers in Fallout 76, as well as their effects!

How to get legendary mods in Fallout 76?
You will have to defeat legendary enemies in order to get then. You will always receive some sort of a legendary items when defeating a legendary opponent, so whenever you see one, make sure that you give it your best and turn it into radioactive ashes!
Legendary enemies are marked by a star next to their name – so they shouldn’t be mistaken for the enemies with a crown.
The latter are bosses of the area and they drop better items (more loot usually and sometimes an improved weapon or armor bit marked with a +), but never legendary mods.
