Top 10 Best PC Mods for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt might only be a week old, but its mod community has already taken off. CD Projekt Red was true to its word when it stated that it was welcoming to modders, and that has paid off in a big way.

 

There are already hundreds of mods available to install for the PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, some better than others. Below you will find 10 of the best on the marketplace.

 


SweetFX + Reshade [Editor's Choice]

SweetFX is more of a preset configuration than a mod. Nonetheless, it is the most popular among all the changes you can make to the base game. My first time using it absolutely blew me away, replacing the dry appearance of the vanilla experience with something full of color and contrast. This combination of mods along with CineFX preset transforms The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt into an astoundingly beautiful game without impacting performance. 

Over 9000 Weight Limit

Managing inventory can be a nuisance. Even with a Saddlebag, it's easy to run out of carry space given how many items there are to collect around the game world. Enter Over 9000 Weight Limit, a mod that allows you to alter how much Geralt can carry to any value of your choosing, realistic or nearly infinite. If you've ever wanted to lug around a hundred pieces of armor and every crafting material in the game, this is the only way to do it.

 

More Horses

This mod allows you to change the appearance of Roach, Geralt's steed. There are several options, including a popular black horse. You spend a lot of time on your horse throughout the journey, so this mod is welcomed for breathing some variety into the traveling experience.

Debug Console Enabler

For getting the most out of your experience there is no better way than to gain access to a console. With this mod you'll be able to enter commands that have many uses, including the spawning of items, enabling of God Mode, and even teleporting around the game world. You'll need to learn the commands, but once you do it'll allow you to control the game world.

Noncombat Health Regen

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can be a very unforgiving game. On higher difficulties death is commonplace. Not being able to rely on meditation to heal doesn't help much. So, it goes without saying that the Noncombat Health Regen mod is a way to make the game much more manageable while retaining the challenge of combat.

XP Gain Multiplier

There's no way around it, leveling in the game is a slow process, especially during the early hours. If you're tired of waiting to level up, then the XP Gain Multiplier is for you. With it you gain control of how quickly you level. A minor increase may make your experience more enjoyable, while a major multiplier will allow you to hit level cap in no time.

Cornered HUD

This mod makes a mild change to the game, pushing the mini-map and in-game UI elements to the corners of the screen. This improves the visible area on your screen, which makes a bigger different to the presentation that you would think.

 

Extreme Weather Conditions

You want a storm? You've got a storm. The Extreme Weather Conditions mod increases the intensity of weather, resulting in drenching rain and decreased visibility. As seen in the video above, it makes a profound difference in how powerful bad weather conditions can be.

All Skill Slots Unlocked

Early on in the game you aren't given much freedom in regards to how many skills you acquire in the skill tree. This mod opens up all the skill slots so that you can diversify early and begin engaging in dynamic combat.

E3FX

If you've tried SweetFX and didn't care for it, E3FX may be for you. This graphically changing mod sets the tonality of the game to be as close as possible to what was shown at E3 2013. It relies more on the mid-ranges, suppressing some of the overdone colors throughout the game world.
