The Witcher 3 is an open-world action RPG by CD Projekt Red. In the game, you play as monster slayer Geralt of Rivera on his quest to find his adopted daughter. Throughout the Witcher 3, there are innumerable places to discover and enemies  to defeat along with a riveting story to enjoy. However, for all that the game does well, certain mods can improve the experience even more. From mods aiming to improve performance, to mods making the game easier, there is a huge selection to choose from. In this article, I will be listing the best Witcher 3 mods as well as explaining how to install them.

Best Witcher 3 Mods

Auto Loot Mod

Sometimes the process of looting enemies can be a bit tedious. This is definitely true in Witcher 3. Thankfully, this highly popular mod hugely simplifies things. This mod allows your character to automatically loot enemies. It has over 20 filters allowing you to set exactly what type of items you want to automatically loot. Once the filters are applied, the mod will sort through the loot for you.

All Quest Objectives on Map Mod

Another useful mod. This one is self-explanatory. It allows you to track all your objectives at one time across multiple quests. Since, Witcher 3 is a massive game with innumerable quests, this is a very useful feature. This mod makes it much easier to multi-task and work towards completing more than one quest at a time.

Over 9,000 Weight Limit Mod

In Witcher 3 there is a weight limit on the loot and items you are carrying. This can be very inconvenient as it forces you to drop loot once you exceed the set limit. This mod resolves the problem by changing the limit to 9,000. With it set to such a high number, gone will be the days where you have to worry about carrying too much. This along with the auto-loot mod both help to create a far more streamlined experience in the game. No wonder they are both amongst the most popular Witcher 3 mods of all time.

Fast Travel from Anywhere Mod

Another fantastic quality of life mod. This allows you to fast travel from anywhere on the map. Without this mod, you can only fast-travel near a signpost. Due the size of the game’s world, finding such a signpost can take a bit of time and can be a bit tedious. If you want to just get from point A to point B as fast as possible, this is the perfect mod to consider downloading.

Hairworks Mod

This is a great mod for performance. The hairworks setting in Witcher 3 is very demanding and can lead to a large drop in FPS. With this mod, the normal hairworks setting is replaced by a new, less intensive one. With this enabled, the characters will retain high quality hair without the consequent drop in the framerate.
