New ranged weapon attachments have been introduced in the latest patch for ICARUS. The Week 39 Update adds a total of 25 new ranged weapon attachments.

Players can find 10 basic attachments in the Tier 3 Alteration Bench. These attachments can improve all bows, crossbows, and firearms in ICARUS. They are:

  • Basic Scope (All ranged weapons)
  • Trajectory Module (Bows and Crossbows)
  • Economic Attachment (Bows and Crossbows)
  • Silencer (All Guns)
  • Flexible Frame (All Guns)
  • Strengthened Strings (Bows only)
  • Lightweight Frame (Crossbows only)
  • Handcannon (Pistol only)
  • Sniper Scope (Rifles only)
  • Spread Reduction Module (Shotgun only)

Another 15 attachments can be found on the Tier 4 Alteration Bench. Here’s a rundown:

  • Advanced Scope (All ranged weapons)
  • Advanced Trajectory Module (Bows and Crossbows)
  • Advanced Economic Attachment (Bows and Crossbows)
  • Advanced Silencer (All Guns)
  • Advanced Flexible Frame (All Guns)
  • Advanced Strengthened Strings (Bows only)
  • Advanced Lightweight Frame (Crossbows only)
  • Advanced Handcannon (Pistol only)
  • Advanced Sniper Scope (Rifles only)
  • Advanced Spread Reduction Module (Shotgun only)
  • Rapid Fire (Bows only)
  • Prototype Notch (Crossbows only)
  • Extended Chamber (Pistol only)
  • Hunting Scope (Rifles only)
  • Spread Increased Module (Shotgun only)

The ones available in the Tier 4 Alteration Bench provide buffs and specialized features. The Advanced Silencer Attachment, for example, increases stealth damage by 40% and reduces perceived threat by 30% as well. Players who want to preserve their weapons may use the Advanced Economic Attachment, which reduces projectile break chance by 10% and the wear rate of items by 40%.

It is worth noting that developer Rocketwerkz will add mounts to the game in the future. So, for players who are asking for a way to move quickly in ICARUS, perhaps they will get what they want soon.
