Elemental Well mods continue to improve and open up new build options in Destiny 2. These Combat Style mods are spread across all elemental types and focuses on creating wells that, when collected, offer some benefit. If you’re playing catch-up, knowing how to get Elemental Well mods and which ones are available is knowledge worth having.
How to get Elemental Well mods
The only way to get Elemental Well mods is to buy them from Ada-1. Players should check in with Ada-1 each day, or stay tuned to places like Twitter or the Destiny subreddit, in order to unlock them all. There are a couple of dozen to collect, so anticipate visiting Ada-1 a few times if you’re missing a bunch.
These mods were introduced with Season of the Chosen and though underwhelming at first, they have solidified their place as must-have mods for those chasing endgame builds. Check out our other mod guides:
All Elemental Well mods
With knowledge of how to get them, now you need to know about all the Elemental Well mods on offer. There are more than 20 of these things to collect and each one has the potential to improve your build.
Each Elemental Well also comes with the same overall effect: Picking up an elemental well grants energy to your ability with the lowest current energy. Picking up an elemental well whose element matches your subclass damage type grants energy to all of your abilities.

Keep in mind that you can mix and match Elemental Well mods. Mods that require Void affinity can still synergize with those that need Solar. However, the limiting factor is the element of the well you spawn. A Void well won’t activate a mod that needs a Solar well. For instance, Well of Ordnance won’t activate if you pick up a Void well.
Unlocking all Elemental Well mods will take some time if you’re new.
