5 Best Fallout 4 Mods to Install on Your PC
Fallout 4 hasn’t been out for very long but the modding community has been hard at work pumping out thousands of Fallout 4 mods for fellow PC players to enjoy. There are several thousands of mods out there to choose from to enhance your post-apocalyptic wasteland gaming experience, but we’ve hand-picked 5 of the best Fallout 4 mods for you and your PC.
Ever wanted a Deathclaw of your own, fighting by your side and not, y’know, slicing your face off? The Creature Follower Esp Fallout 4 mod lets you do just that, and more. Choose from a wide array of enemy units (25 in all, 26 counting a spoilerrific bonus one) to recruit, from Synths to Mirelurk Queens. Followers whose races have gear functionality also have the option to equip and use items for added firepower. And the cherry on top of this Fallout mod cake is the fact that creature recruits won’t take up an additional follower slot, so a vanilla follower can still tag along on the journey.
ANY MOD ANY WEAPON
Play mad scientist with the Any Mod Any Weapon mod, which gives you the ability to attach any weapon mod to any weapon, including, wait for it…melee weapons. The sky is the limit with this crazy weapon mod. Attach to your heart’s desire and rain havoc down on your foes using aptly-named stuff like a Recoil Compensated Huge Rapid Gatling Laser or a Fluter Triple Barrel Target Seeking Fat Man, a la Borderlands. Another one of the best Fallout 4 mods if you are a Firearms junkie.
ROBOT HOME DEFENSE
If you think turrets and guns aren’t nearly enough security to protect your settlement, then you just might need a robot or two prowling the perimeters on the lookout for pesky raiders. In which case, get the Robot Home Defense Fallout 4 mod. You’ll still need to rank up your Robotic Expert perk and acquire a few Fusion Cores to make said robots, but the end products are well worth it. You get to pick from a huge variety of Fallout robots, like Mister Gutsies, Utility Protectrons, and Protrectron Brewers to keep your settlements supplied with food and water. The robots are able to escort you around, too. The future is now with the robot home defense mod.
FULL DIALOGUE INTERFACE
Doesn’t it get tiresome when you go and pick a dialogue option, thinking it means one thing but your character says another? This has become a common thing to experience in Fallout 4, where full dialogue options have been swapped out for quick, vague prompts which isn’t good if you want conversations to go a certain way. And in the Commonwealth Wasteland, a conversation can mean the difference between friend and foe. Sweet-talking and negotiating can be a tool for survival. The Full Dialogue Interface mod makes Fallout 4 display full lines of dialogue instead of the bite-sized, paraphrased pieces we get in the vanilla fallout 4 version. Very handy for better control over interactions and a worthy top 5 Fallout 4 mod in our opinion.
ENHANCED WASTELAND PRESET
The Enhanced Wasteland Preset mod is really more of an aesthetic touch, but it might affect your experience more than you think, especially if you’re one for getting full immersion out of a game. The Enhanced Wasteland Preset immersion mod is perfect for players who think that the wasteland environment in the vanilla Fallout 4 version of a game is a tad bit too washed out and too verdant. This ReShade/SweetFX mod makes colours and textures in the game more vibrant, on top of providing ambient light, luma sharpen and a plethora of other neat features. This Fallout 4 graphics mod immerses players a bit deeper into the already amazing Fallout 4 wasteland, if your PC can handle it.
