Top 10 Fallout Mods


One of the biggest game series ever just got a hell of a lot bigger. Welcome to WatchMojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 FalloutMods.

These are the modifications for any of the series’ 3D entries that bring new mechanics, textures, quests and locations or perhaps even stabilize the game’s unaltered state. If one of these mods doesn’t cause your game to fatally crash, it’ll get more points from us.

#10: Nexus Mod Manager
“Fallout” series (1997-2015)


No matter how silly or comprehensive the mod you are trying to install, this bit of software will be your best friend in getting everything going. Instead of having to do it all yourself, this client takes care of downloading and installing everymod, all you really need to do is choose from the thousands of options available to you. It grew out of the Fallout Mod Manager to become easily accessible and compatible with any mod found on the Nexus site and an absolute necessity for anyone hoping to drastically change the look of their game. Nexus have even made it an open source program, meaning you have the option to tailor it’s tools to your precise needs.

#9: The Unofficial Patch
Fallout 3


Lets face it, Bethesda RPGs are buggy, and we don't just mean radroaches here people. To their credit, Bethesda continues to provide amazing support for their games long after they have been released, but at some point that support always has to end. Enter the Unofficial Patch. The laundry list of small and minor updates and fixes this mod applies is mind blowing. Everything from spelling mistakes to broken quests and game-crashing interactions, this mod is an absolute must for anyone who thinks Fallout 3 is even a little bit loose around the edges. Future Fallout titles have also seen their own Unofficial Patch Mods, but the fact that Fallout 3's version still sees regular updates from it's creator BenWah makes it our pick for the most essential.

#8: Alton, IL
“Fallout 3” (2008)


When fan-made mods are this damn good, why would you ever pay for DLC again? Coming in at two times the size of the Point Lookout add-on, new quests, characters and a faction system are available in this recreation of the Illinois city. It doesn’t skimp on quality either: numerous other modders have added their flavor to the map that is available in four languages while voice actors and composers add extra polish in the audio department. It was so good that the guy who started it all, Elijah Houck, landed a job at Rockstar off the back of this mod, a testament to the lofty standards that were behind every facet of this brand new world.

#7: One Punch Man
“Fallout 4” (2015)


Is your adventure through the Commonwealth becoming a little mundane and not giving you what you need? Then channel the spirit of this similarly apathetic superhero and destroy every enemy with, you guessed it, one punch. The Wasteland is where the Caped Baldy has come to find opponents worthy of his power but sadly for him, even the Deathclaws can’t give him the challenge he desires. Saitama might still be undefeatable but spawning dozens of enemies to be swatted halfway across the map is still wildly satisfying.

#6: Full Dialogue Interface
“Fallout 4” (2015)


If you ask those players who were dissatisfied with Fallout 4 what their biggest gripe was, front and center will probably be the limited dialogue – and the fact that the onscreen prompts never really tell you what your character is about to say. This mod completely solves the second part of that problem as the customizable interface will reflect what your character is actually going to say, rather than a vague summation hinting at a general tone or theme. Every language supported by the actual game is also compatible with the mod and with around 170,000 lines of dialogue in total, it has taken an astounding collaborative effort to bring it to life.

#5: Existence 2.0 – Robot Radio
“Fallout 3” (2008)


Bethesda make your time in the wasteland pretty action-packed but, as is par for the course in any world ravaged by nuclear war, there will be the occasional baron expanse with little to do. The existing radio stations do a good job of keeping your ears occupied but after a while it can get a tad repetitive. Enter Junket, the host of Existence 2.0 who brings you 180 minutes of all-new songs and 45 minutes of patter from the man, or rather robot, himself. You get even more value for download as included is a new quest and further exploration of the station’s studio. Start your game with this installed, you won’t even notice it’s an add-on.

#4: New Vegas Bounties
“Fallout: New Vegas” (2010)


Totally embracing the more mature side of the Fallout world, you become Nevada’s equivalent of Jango Fett. There’s little emphasis placed on anything but killing in this trilogy of quest mods that is filled with profanity and numerous high-level outlaws and scumbags. Starting in 2010 and ending in 2015, every new installment continues the story of it’s predecessor while adding more locations and more bounties to collect. In total you get about ten hours of brand new content with nearly five thousand lines of dialogue, showing there is plenty of life left in the old New Vegas dog yet.

#3: Macho Claws
“Fallout 4” (2015)


It might not quite be the way Randy Savage thought he would be immortalized but hey, who else can say they’ve had their likeness grafted onto one of the most dangerous monsters in the Fallout universe? Not only is the Deathclaw kitted out in the same fluorescent y-fronts, hat and shades as the Macho Man, he also talks smack just like the late ex-wrestler. Not everything is quite right with the macho claw however and his melted, twisted face and body looking down upon you will give you nightmares for months to come.

#2: Fallout Wanderer’s Edition
“Fallout 3” (2008)


At times the Wasteland might not be as tough to survive in as you might expect from a land ravaged by radiation. The game’s difficulty, pacing, equipment, NPCs and countless other aspects are carefully tweaked to create a more demanding FPS-oriented game and make your time in the wasteland feel truly hopeless. With the apocalypse at it’s unforgiving best, the emphasis is completely put on the player’s skill, meaning you won’t have your hand held at any stage of proceedings. If you’re looking for a simulation of what the real end of the world will be like, this is the mod for you.

Before we reveal our top pick let’s take a look at some honorable mentions.

Niner Companion
“Fallout: New Vegas” (2010)

Monster Mod
“Fallout: New Vegas” (2010)

Higher Settlement Budget
“Fallout 4” (2015)

Armorsmith Extended
“Fallout 4” (2015)

#1: Project Nevada
“Fallout: New Vegas” (2010)


There’s a reason this is the most endorsed Nexus mod for the game: it does pretty much everything. However, unlike other mods, every single feature is not forced upon you, instead it’s broken down into four handy modules that address different areas of gameplay. Core, Cyberware, Rebalance and Equipment are your customizable options and you can keep or ditch any of the hundreds of alterations depending on your taste. Most players will use it like the Wanderer’s Edition to enhance difficulty but you can always go crazy with cybernetic enhancements or collect every new weapon, your choices are endless in a modthat broadens the game’s appeal into all-new genres.
