What are nightmare mods?
Nightmare mods are mods which drop from nightmare mode missions. All of the nightmare mods are rare quality (they look golden) and they increase two of your stats.
Why should you want to get NM mods and a list of them
As mentioned in the previous section, the nightmare mods increase two of your stats(except for 1 mod), so it should come as no suprise that they are really useful while modding. There are a total of 19 Nightmare mods. All except 8 of these mods have 3 ranks.

Nightmare Missions
Nightmare mods are awarded to players who complete nightmare missions. Nightmare missions start appearing on planet if you've completed all the missions on that planet. Nightmare missions are marked with a red-orange colour and have a symbol on them which looks similar to the photo for this guide (in red colour). Once you hover over the nightmare missions you will see that after the gamemode it has something written in brackets, thats the negative modifier of the mission. Every Nightmare mission has negative modifiers, each mission can have 1-2 negative modifiers.

List of all negative modifiers:
-Vampire Mode (your health drains, each time you kill you get hp back)
-Death Detonation Mode (when you kill enemies they explode dealing little damage to you)
-Timed Mode (you have a certant amount of time to complete the mission, usualy 5 minutes)
-Friendly Fire Mode (you can damage and kill your teammates)
-Energy Drain Mode (your energy drains really fast and you will have no energy most of the time)
-No Sheild Mode (you have no sheild ) *inaros intensifies*
-Low Gravity Mode (the gravity is lower)

In addition to these negative modifiers the enemy level is also higher.
Once you complete a nightmare mission on a planet you will need to wait 8 hours for another nightmare mission to appear on that planet.
How to get the specific NM mods you want
Depending on the mission category you will get different mods. Certant mods drop on certant difficulties.
Nightmare missions are divided into 3 categories:
-Easy
-Medium
-Hard
How can you tell if the missions is easy, medium or hard? The mission difficulty depends on the planet that its on.
