All of Outriders legendary weapons consist of a base weapon type - assault rifle, shotgun and so on - with two mods that add additional effects. These effects can deal more damage, boost player healing, make enemies more vulnerable, slower, explode and plenty more. The combination of base weapon type and mod effects usually indicate a pretty clear way to use the weapon to best effect, so always check the mods and what they do to ensure you're getting the best from it.
