Attachments are items that can be applied to a currently equipped weapon to improve its recoil, firing rate, magazine size, etc. Most weapon attachments and magazines have rarity levels from Common to Epic, with each successive level providing better statistics than the last. Some attachments also have Legendary versions that have specific buffs.
