What Are Upgrade Modules Used For?

Upgrade Modules are a rare resource in the game used for buying additional fragments but more importantly, it is used to upgrade high level gear.

All gear that reaches 130 Power and still has some room for upgrades will require a specified number of Upgrade Modules. Thus, Upgrade Modules are essential in order to reach the maximum power for any hero.

Villain Threat Sectors

Villain Threat Sectors are a type of War Zone with Abomination or Taskmaster boss fights at the end but are not essential to the story itself. Defeating these bosses may award Upgrade Modules.

Elite Hives

Elite Hives are post-campaign content that has an assured Upgrade Module reward. Complete them multiple times but be warned, these Hives are one of the most difficult and longest missions in the game.

Faction Shops

Both the SHIELD Faction and the Inhuman Alliance Faction shops sell Upgrade Modules at the cost of 250 Fragments. If you have Fragments to spare, then, you can buy from them at the SHIELD Substation Zero and Ant Hill respectively.

Further, if you reach Level 40 in any of the factions, you are given 5 Upgrade Modules as a reward so do your Daily Assignments with them to get your Faction Levels up.

Completing Challenge Cards

Multiple times along a character's challenge cards are Upgrade Module bundles. Complete Daily and Weekly Challenges to progress your Challenge Cards.

How To Farm Upgrade Modules

There is no easy way to farm Upgrade Modules but the best way is to complete War Zones that have a high number of silver and gold strongboxes. These strongboxes have a higher chance (though still very low) of dropping rarer resources including Upgrade Modules.

If you are confident enough, Elite Hives have an assured Upgrade Module with each completion. Bring in your best heroes to complete them.
