The best Fallout 4 mods

Don't just wander the wasteland. Customize it.


It's no easy task finding the best Fallout 4 mods among the thousands of excellent fixes, changes, tweaks, and enhancements modders have made to Bethesda's 2015 post-apocalyptic RPG. We gave it a shot, though, and we've collected a great list of picks for the best mods for Fallout 4. Naturally, we'll be updating these pages in the future as even more fantastic mods appear.

On the following pages, we've listed list the best mods for settling and crafting, visual improvements, gameplay enhancements, weapons and gear, new adventures and locations, and finally, the tools and utilities you need to get these mods working. For more, check out our list of Fallout 4 console commands. Mods added in the latest update of this list have been marked with a ⭐.

As always, carefully read each mod page's instructions for installation, requirements, and compatibility with the latest version of Fallout 4 before you download anything.
