Game modifiers (or "mod" for short) are optional modifications to a beatmap's elements and settings that players can enable from the Mod Selection Screen (above). Mods can make beatmaps easier, harder, or just plain fun.

Players can access the Mod Selection Screen in the song selection screen by clicking the Mods button near the lower left corner of the screen or by pressing F1 on their keyboard. Once in the Mod Selection Screen, there are also keyboard shortcuts that can be used to select specific mods. These shortcuts may be changed in the Options.

On the selection screen, mods are separated into three categories: Difficulty Reduction, Difficulty Increase, and Special, and they can either reduce, increase, or remove the Score Multiplier. When two mods are being used simultaneously, the mods' respective multiplier will be multiplied together (e.g., 1.06x * 1.12x = 1.1872x).
