Top Ten Witcher 3 Mods To Enhance Your Game

Category: Opinion

Let’s get your copy of The Witcher 3 looking and playing even better! Though we hold fond memories of our experience in The Witcher 3, returning can reveal a few areas where the game feels a tad dated. With a plethora of mods out there for the taking, let’s go through the best of them and how you can get your hands on them right now.

First you’ll need to be aware of a few things to begin your road to Witcher 3 modding. It may be super obvious to some but yes, you’ll need Nexus Mod Manager. This clever program will be your number one assistant in selecting and installing mods into your game, taking all the complicated programming stuff out of the equation. Nice!

Secondly, your Witcher 3 modding experience is going to get… heavy. Once you pop you can’t stop. Which means lots of mods and combinations are likely going to make up your diet of technical tinkering.This mod unlocks the debug console, letting you use console commands to change settings, spawn enemies and fix broken things. So, to share the load and make life a little easier for your PC, grab the Debug Console Enabler. If you already downloaded Nexus Mod Manager, go ahead and click “Mod Manager Download”.

Lastly is the icing on the cake to make extra sure your computer is happy with the added load of snazzy mods. Apparently, The Witcher 3 has a mod limit - who knew! In the interest of not feeling limited to one set of mods, Mod Merger has got your back. This clever little program will recognise compatible mods and merge them into one file to save on your total mod capacity. Neat!

Got all three downloaded? Before you begin tinkering, let’s play it safe and make sure you’re completely up to date. Lastly, it’s best to install the Unification Patch. This one is only available as a manual download as you’ll have to install it separately. It includes fixes to the original release files, which is essential to some mods functioning properly.

Now you’re ready to start tinkering and enhancing your Witcher 3 experience.

10. Friendly Meditation

Let’s start today’s list off with a nice relaxing bit of meditation. When The Witcher 3 released, many were disappointed that it didn’t have the Witcher 2’s stylings. Simply looking at a menu screen and watching the clock hands turn… Isn’t too great. So, with Friendly Meditation, as in The Witcher 2, we’ll get to see the sun rise and fall over the Northern Realms in quick-time. Just like a relaxing clip from a David Attenborough program. 

9. FCR3 Mod

This one is great for those looking for a real stamp of official approval. The FCR3 Mod was designed by CD Projekt Red’s very own Andrzej Kwiatkowski and includes a whole host of tweaks and fixes. These can range from minor immersion breakers to buffs and debuffs on stats, as well as cosmetic fixes and everything in between. If your looking for an official tightening of the screws, FCR3 Mod is for you.  With no real applicable image for this, why not just stick with an awesome picture of Geralt spewing fire from his palm?


Anybody experienced with RPGs knows there’s one rule of thumb. Once you level up enough, you’ll eventually become an unstoppable god of destruction. This certainly rang true after a couple of hundred hours sunk into Skyrim. Well, Enemies of Rivia aims to prevent that waning of gameplay experience. As enemies around the world level up with Geralt, they’ll also unleash new attack patterns demanding the player stays on their toes at all times. Never become complacent with this mod activated. Expect revamped A.I and totally new attack animations.  

7. E3 Dodge System

Back when The Witcher 3 was initially announced, we saw Geralt fighting his way through the swamps of Velen. It was great but the dodge system we saw then didn’t survive into the final release. Some disagreed with this decision. With the E3 Dodge System, players will see a return to the fancy footwork originally displayed. No more rolling about like a pinball!  

6. Geralt Cloak

If you’ve ever fancied making Geralt look a little more… Sith - Geralt Cloak is the mod for you. It serves no practical purpose whatsoever. Although, there’s no denying just how badass it makes Geralt look as he goes for a moody stroll through Novigrad or when he’s pirouetting his blade into enemies’ faces. Players will also get a new key binding to lift and lower the hood or remove the cloak altogether. A few changes can also be made to the cloak’s colour.  

5. Absolute Camera

This extremely flexible mod allows the player to set camera positions for various “Geralt states”. For example, a camera positioning can be set for when Geralt is walking / running or in combat to name but a few features. Check out the mod’s description page for a full rundown of each of the camera options that will become available. Absolute Camera is a great mod for a slightly more cinematic approach and great in combination with Photo Mode

4. Photo Mode

Yes, we’ve all been crying out for a Photo Mode in one of the most beautiful open worlds ever made. Now it’s possible. Immortalise each special Witcher moment with the Photo Mode mod. Features include a time and weather changing system for that perfect shot, as well as the ability to nail that perfect angle! 

3. Increased Draw Distance

Here we have a great option for players who want to stretch their rig to its utmost capacity. We’re familiar with that system saving RedEngine blue fog in the distance. Increased Draw Distance offers a slider of sorts to eradicate that default draw distance. If your rig can handle it, draw distance can be set to unlimited. Alternatively, if your rig is not so god like you’ll also have the option to dip your toes in the water a little and reduce it in just small parts. Hey, every little helps, right? 

2. E3FX

As we all know by now, when games get announced at E3 we’re not necessarily looking at what will be the finished product. Need I remind you of how misleading The Division’s reveal was? While nowhere near as drastic, the Witcher 3’s reveal was considerably graphically enhanced to wow audiences. With E3FX, the graphical pezzaz of the E3 demonstration need no longer be a bittersweet memory. If your rig has the horsepower to drive through just how demanding it is, this graphical overhaul mod will make your game look even juicier. 

1. Fast Travel From Anywhere

This one does what it says on the tin and my god, is it useful. Who wants to get caught in the woods at night, stalked by rabid wolves? While you can magically teleport whenever you like, your destinations will be limited still to the world’s signposts. Which means, if you’re on a fresh playthrough, you’ll have to get exploring to reveal those signposts. Hey - don’t be too lazy!
