Utility Mods are only used by opponents in Missions. They have no specific abilities, as they give any kind of Buffs depending on the Mission.
It is possible to see the Mod's effects on your opponent if you select a Bot's portrait (not the actual node) in the Mission. On the "Node Info" screen, you can select "Local Mod" to see the Mod's abilities. You can also tap on the Mod's picture in the "Bot Selection" screen before you start a fight if you want to find out what kind of effects it provides to your opponent.
It is highly recommended that you view the Mod's effects before you start a hard battle or even go on one of the harder paths when exploring Missions, especially in Challenge Missions like The Last Knight Challenge and Expert difficulties in Spotlight Missions, as these Mods give a formidable effect to opponents that must be strategically overcome.
