Can You Toggle Mods In No Return
Yes, you can toggle Mods on or off in The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered No Return.
By default, any standard run in No Return will automatically apply a mod during each encounter after you leave base. However, once you unlock Mods, you can choose to toggle on or off. Activating Mods such as Thick Fog will act as a double-edged sword: you and the enemies both will have reduced visibility.
That is why you must always consider mods in your route and encounter planning is key, as they hold the power to either make your run smooth or make it challenging to complete. It’s essential to weigh the potential drawbacks of each mod, determining whether they could jeopardize your run or if the potential rewards are worth the risk. If the risk seems too great, factor this into the route you’re mapping out.
That is everything you need to know about how to unlock all Mods in The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered No Return. If you find this guide helpful, then don’t hesitate to check these also: The Last of Us 2 All Safe Codes & Locations, and combat tips and tricks guides.
