ESSENTIAL FALLOUT 4 VR MODS FOR RIFT, QUEST, PCVR
War. War never changes. Unless, of course, you apply VR mods to war, and then yes, war can change quite a bit in fact! Fallout 4 was developed by Bethesda Game Studios and released in late 2015. It was critically well-received and scored highly with critics and gamers alike. Taking place in the year 2287 you play as the character dubbed ‘Sole Survivor’ in a post-apocalyptic world searching for your missing child. Combining in-depth character customization and progression, a vast open-world map, and lots of player choice from exploration to combat and NPC interaction, Fallout 4 has become one of the franchise’s most successful installments. The Game of the Year addition was released in 2017, and the VR edition for PC and PlayStation was also released in late 2017. As you can expect from any Bethesda production, each iteration of the game is released with its own myriad of bugs, glitches, and quality of life issues. The VR versions are no exception to this. Thankfully, a dedicated modding community exists to tweak and improve and add longevity to this much-loved title. So, here is a list of the best mods currently available for Fallout 4 VR on the PC. Please read to the end to discover how to install and use these mods, much appreciated!
FALLOUT 4 VR OPTIMIZATION PROJECT
This one is a must have mod in my humble opinion. This doesn’t add anything extra per say but does enhance and improve VR optimization on your edition of Fallout 4. This means smoother gameplay, less bug, and general overall improvements in graphics and fidelity. It also works well in conjunction with other mods and once installed, I found I ran into a lot less crashes or gameplay issues even with lots of other mods running at the same time. Not one to be missed. Click here to get the mod.
This one offers more visual options and a few new gun overlays for the player. Having static hands-on screen in vanilla Fallout is slightly immersion-breaking. Now you can have more realistic hand movements on screen, and you can choose from many original pre-set designs also. Add to that the choice of new weapon skins and these mods add a bit more visual flair and realism to your Fallout 4 experience. Click here to get the mod.
SMOOTH MOVEMENT VR
Again, as previously mentioned vanilla Fallout 4 released with many bugs and glitches on all iterations of the game. When it comes to Fallout 4 VR, the jittery movement is very noticeable. Can even be a little nauseating to those players who haven’t quite developed their VR sea legs yet. Almost akin to frame skips, your in-game movements are jarring. Smooth Movement VR mod completely fixes this problem. Now movement in the game is vastly improved and seems silky smooth in comparison. Click here to get the mod.
FRIK FULL PLAYER BODY WITH IK
As if copied and paste straight from Skyrim Vr, the FRIK mod is absolutely amazing. Adding your full body within the game changes your experience for the better. Getting to look down and see your full body seems obvious but really makes a difference when before this mod, you’re staring at nothing. Great for more realistic game immersion. Click here to get the mod.
Tired of scrolling to menus and selecting weapons from your inventory? Of course, you are … that’s not realistic in the slightest. The Virtual Holsters mod allows for up to seven holsters all over your body. This means accessing the weapon or item you want in the heat of battle is as easy as reaching for it and pulling it out. Such a vast gameplay improvement over what’s already on offer. Great fun to use in-game and a good all-round improvement for Fallout 4 VR. Click here to get the mod.
Don’t get too excited, the name of this mod is misleading. No, you won’t be transported into the gates of hell to wreak havoc unfortunately. Instead, it’s a very good addition to in-game weapons. Adding cool laser sights and torches to existing weapons in the game. This makes gameplay more fun and takes the edge off aiming a little. Definitely worth checking out as it enhances your gameplay experience overall. Click here to get the mod.
NO EXTERIOR LIGHTS
This one is worth checking out if you’re PC is struggling to run Fallout 4 VR at a stable framerate. It cuts out any placed outdoor light sources which helps reduce the pressure on your hardware a little. Good to experiment with if you’re game is starting to chug during outdoor environments. Toggle it on or off to see if you find any improvements overall in your VR experience. Click here to get the mod.
There you go, that is ten of the best mods currently available for Fallout 4 VR. Experimentation is half the fun! Pick and choose as you please. My advice is to try adding the mods one at a time so that if there are any conflicts or performance issues, you know which mod to switch off.
