Amalgam Mods are mods that typically sacrifice some of their main stat for a sub stat that you would not normally find on their counterparts. Though their usage varies depending on your build, it is still good to pick these up at least to hang on to. Below, we have assembled a quick guide on all 9 Amalgam Mods and where you can obtain them in Warframe.
Amalgam Mods, Detailed
Amalgam Mods come in two flavors: Universal and Weapon Augment
Universal Weapon Amalgam Mods
These mods can fit on any weapons their standard counterparts would.
- Amalgam Barrel Diffusion - +110 Multishot, +60% Dodge Speed

- Amalgam Shotgun Barrage - +85% Fire Rate, +48% Revive Speed
- Amalgam Serration - +155% Damage, +25% Sprint Speed
These mods can all be obtained by participating in the Thermia Fractures event on Orb Vallis, Venus. Note that the Thermia Fractures event is not always available. It typically returns a few weeks after the last occurrence. Be sure to keep an eye out for it.
