Deconstruct screen

Deconstructed weapons sometimes drop a random augmentation. The following information is based on deconstruction of more than 1,000 weapons. Research is ongoing.


  • The augmentation drop will not be shown on the deconstruct screen and you will have to compare your inventory before/after to determine if an augmentation was dropped.
  • The random augmentation will already be researched and/or known to the player.
  • The weapon to be deconstructed has to be crafted, found, purchased, or a Strike Team Item Loot Box reward.
  • Crafted weapons always return augmentations used in their development with a chance of an additional augmentation drop.
  • No Remnant augmentations are dropped.
  • Weapons in the Milky Way tech group drop Milky Way augmentations; weapons in the Heleus tech group may drop either Milky Way or Heleus augmentations.
  • The rarity of the deconstructed weapon is not tied to the rarity of the dropped augmentation.
  • The random augmentation is not locked to a specific weapon. It is possible to load a saved game before deconstruction and get a different augmentation from the same weapon.
