Best Fallout 4 VR Mods

Level up your Fallout 4 VR experience with the best mods out there
Last Updated on September 14, 2021

Due to its age and ongoing popularity, as well as Bethesda’s signature glut of bugs, Fallout 4 is one of the most modded video games out there, and the VR version is no exception. It’s fair to say that Fallout 4 VR isn’t the most polished experience in technical and performance terms, even when compared to the standard PC version. It’s riddled with bugs and shoddy textures. And, suffers from poor optimization, not least the choppy frame rate players often have to contend with when journeying across post-apocalyptic New England.

Fortunately, enterprising players have taken it upon themselves to rectify many of the game’s issues via hundreds of lovingly crafted modifications. These range from visual embellishments to the landscape, armors, weapons, and weather to optimization tweaks and quality of life gameplay improvements that transform Fallout 4 VR from barely ‘playable’ to a relatively robust virtual reality experience.

Despite its shortcomings, Fallout 4 is a great game, and any self-respecting VR player owes it to themselves to play it in the best way possible. We’ll give you all the information you need to find the best Fallout 4 VR mods out there in this guide.

Survival Mode introduces a wealth of customization options to Fallout 4 VR’s Survival Mode. You can alter and tweak virtually any aspect of the experience from thirst/hunger/sleep needs to fast travel by way of damage for a genuinely unique survival experience.
