The best Fallout 4 mods

Nexus Mod Manager

Download link

The NMM is compatible with Fallout 4, and as the years pass and the mods stack up, it'll be pretty much indispensable. What's more, it works with a bunch of other games like Bethesda's RPG, The Witcher 3, Dark Souls 1 and 2, and World of Tanks. It makes downloading and managing mods from the Nexus a breeze.

Fallout 4 Script Extender

Download link

As the modding scene for Fallout 4 grows, more and more will use the Fallout 4 Script Extender. It's a utility that allows mods to work without actually modifying the game's executable files, so even if something goes wrong with a mod it won't cause any permanent damage.


With the arrival of official modding tools came Bethesda's own repository for Fallout 4 mods. You'll need an account (it's free) and once you have one you'll be able to browse and download mods even while you're in the game.
