Most weapons in Planetside have a slew of attachments available. These attachments affect the weapon in a large variety of ways, providing better clarity on target, reducing recoil and increasing damage at range, to name a few.

There are four classes of attachments in Planetside; Optics, Barrel, Rail, and Ammo. Not all guns have access to attachments in every category, and each attachment's effect can vary drastically.

Purchasing an attachment only unlocks it for the weapon it was purchased on. Purchasing a Flash Suppressor for the TRAC-5 will not unlock it for the T1 Cycler, for instance. If the attachment is purchased with Daybreak Cash, it will be unlocked on that weapon for all characters on that account. If the weapon is shared across multiple classes, any attachments purchased can be used on that weapon regardless of class.

All attachments can be previewed in the VR Training Facility, even if the weapon is not owned.
