Pass​ive Modules are the name of armor upgrades in Section 8. There are different types of upgrades that can be integrated into nine different slots on any Powered Assault Armor, each with a maximum capacity of four modules. With each module, the effects of certain functions in the armor are increased. There are ten modules that can be spread out over all nine slots.

In Section 8: Prejudice, passive modules return as Upgrades. Modules are assigned to different passive upgrade slots just like in Section 8, but are renamed as Upgrade Points. There is a greater selection of upgrades to choose from, even more so if you obtain the Unlockable upgrades. Some of the middle-level unlockable upgrades grant smaller boosts to things like armor and shields, but also provide different boosts to other areas as well. Higher level unlockable upgrades actually grant larger boosts to one attribute, but decrease some others. Obtaining Pauldron upgrades by increasing Prejudice: Online ranks also increase the amount of upgrade points and slots for each different upgrade available for distribution.
