The Witcher 3 - Top 5 ESSENTIAL Mods


So I decided to make a video on the Best Witcher Mods that I've found in the past few weeks. These are mods I would highly recommend to anyone that plays the Witcher.

So here's the 5 Essential Mods for the Witcher 3.

Ok, I get that these mods aren't actually essential, as the vanilla game is still amazing, but these mods will definitely improve your experience and immersion if you install them.
  • Knight King

    You don't complete quests for the exp, you complete quests for the STORY!

  • k g

    no fall damage is needed in this game , geralt falls off a step and dies otherwise

  • Jammy

    If you're disregarding quests because you don't think the reward will be worth it, you're playing this game wrong.

  • Matt Novosad

    I find your points about the XP mod to be lacking. I don't think I've ever played an RPG where I haven't wanted to do a quest because I'm not going to get a lot of XP at the end. I do the quest because it has an interesting little story and some fun gameplay in between the story bits.

    I'm 1 minute in and I'm already hating this video

  • Who Dat Ninja

    Pretty sure removing the HUD is in the game already. Just press the Home key.

  • Victor Hugo

    I'd like to add to more:CiriBathRemovalLingerie Removal (This one is part of the Wild Nudity Project)

  • Rareș Fărăgău

    The thing is, none of these mods are *essential*, in order to play The Witcher 3. Number 5 almost breaks the game, if you ask me, number 4 fixes some things, but breaks others, if you read the notes. Three is out of the question for some people who can't even run the witcher at medium settings, 2... I don't remember ever running into that problem, so yeah. The only truly useful mod out of all of these is 1. Getting rid of the ui while exploring really does justice to the game.What I want to say is... this is not Skyrim. The game works just fine without mods, and is a pleasure to play. There are definitely no 'essential' mods for the witcher 3, just really good ones. Like the 1st.

  • V

    Are there good armor mods? Witchers armors look so bad.

  • Detective Geils

    The first one is cheating because you'd be on level 40 when you do a level 10 quest and still get all the xp but the quest would still be so easy. You didn't earn the xp.

  • cami_ insidebooi

    First mod is rubbish. Just finished the game for the first time last night, and XP isn't the reason you do quest!!! *facepalms ahhhhLike only the best RGP I've ever played. Edit: did I say RGP? Sorry I mean best.

  • Nomad

    The Wichter 3 don´t need a mod. He need a patch!

  • Kristopher Williams

    None of these mods interests me except for the button change for lighting fires.

  • Mein Leiben

    Yeah, break the balancing for all the people who play the quest because of the interisting storys and loot.

  • Danny Gomez

    #1 is useless. All other suggestions are good though

  • ps3dubbs

    Wait .... wait .. wait ! Witcher 3 had mods!!!! Guess i missed it as im on ps4 👎

  • Francis Tan

    I can actually do number 1 without mods. discovered it accidentally by pressing the "home key"

  • Mike Yates

    What are your pc specs ??

  • Jack johnson

    No AMM? C'mon bruh..

  • Herb

    nice video, well edited, i appreciate the effort you put into this

  • Jundy Mar Sotero

    MORE LIKE PATCHES THAN MOD

  • Bjay _jw

    Anyone else say wtf when they first encountered the caretaker? 😂 but I beat him by running around the fountain 🤦🏽😂

  • afq radeon

    Your voice is too low man. Disliked !!

  • MrMartGonzo

    I used to have a really useful mod that removed the vertical camera limits on Geralt but it stopped working and never got updated :(if anyone knows of another I'd love to get it.

  • K3MB0

    Could someone explain something , can you have more than one mod at a time?? And is this the case for all games.

  • Dereck Shaw

    this is pc only right? i didnt see an option for mods on the xbox one.

  • Drew M

    Still disappointed that this game doesn't have the crazy overhaul modding that Skyrim does.

  • Tommy Gibblers

    The rich characters and fantastic writing is the incentive to complete all the quests, not the quest rewards. You're doing it all wrong.

  • Daniel

    I've played through the game like 20 times...Never had the torch issue or a problem looting stuff next to a candle.

  • IrfanTheTinyGamer

    Lighting torches has basically improved my game experience. No. It made you mental

  • xerader123

    The only mod I think is needed is friendly hud, and that too so you can enjoy the beauty of the game more.

  • Ethan

    Real question is, Keyboard and Mouse or Controller?

  • Matthew Goodfriend

    The only thing I'd like is a fix to the movement in the game. There's no hope for the combat system so if I could actually control my character's direction outside of combat at least this game might be worth finishing. (Bad movement is definitely my number 1 pet peeve.) That is if I don't have to track down somebody else before EVER finding Ciri. Never seen a story work so hard at going nowhere.

  • Main_Antagonist

    People whining about xp seem to have a lack of understanding of time management it's more time efficient to level up by doing high reward quests so why go backwards for low xp, low loot etc.The problem is that the xp should scale regardless of what quest you're on based off your current level the xp doesn't scale therefore there is little incentive unless you have a raging hard on for small side quests despite the lacklustre reward.

  • JOHN WICK

    bruh even witcher SIDE QUEST IS LIKE IS A WELL WRITTEN STORY EVERY QUEST HAVE DIFFERENT STORY EVEN THOUGH YOU GOT SMALL EXP BUT THE EXPERIENCE YOU GET IN REAL LIFE IS MESMERIZING AND BREATHTAKING

  • LightOfSkyFalling

    Avoid this video... A mod for exp? On this game? /Pass

  • Viking Jack

    this is one game you should never mod, its fantastic. visually and quests etc, as others have stated too "you DO NOT DO THE QUESTS only for Exp. but in this game every single quest is entertaining one way or the other . wanna mod games to hell ? go play fallout or something .

  • The Stampede

    Where can you get that silver sword that clipped through the scabbard

  • The Lion

    bro i went to your channel to see some skyrim vids and i noticed you havent uploaded since last year?! sad face lol

  • Dakota Downey

    What about an equipment not breaking mod?

  • Ashfalor

    About as essential as farting while holding a tulip.

  • Akasha Moka

    I playn Normal since its my first Witchers, and instead of trying to dodge, parry, dodge, roll a million times, I still try to be careful while enjoying it. Still find it fun at the difficulty I am playing.

  • Fubbick

    Sorry, but you could've picked way better mods for this. I have no idea how an XP mod is "essential" a long with 2 visual mods. The game is already great visually so upgrades textures are far from essential. They will also impact your FPS negatively and add bugs.Here's what I'd say are essential mods that stay true to the vanilla game:Jump in shallow water (does just what it says)FriendlyHUD (greatly improved HUD, 100% customizable, comes with a mod menu)Sort Everything (sorts inventory, quest log etc. how you like it. Comes with a mod menu)Immersive Cam (Improved and customizable camera, implements head-tracking etc. Comes with a mod menu.)Alternate Light Source Interaction (It's a more fleshed out and immersive version of "Torch Hold to Interact". You use Igni to ignite torches and Aard to extinguish them. You wont see the annoying "Extinguish/Ignite" prompts unless you have Aard/Igni equipped.)No fall damage might be useful to some people as well, but I personally don't use it, so I can't really vouch for it. I don't fall to my death enough to consider it an essential mod.

  • ReinDawn

    Number ONE friendly hud toggling the ui on and off... I discovered home button does the same thing.

  • Gustavo Morales

    Interesting. Personally, the only ones truly essential from this list are FHUD and HDRP.Always Full XP is not an essential mod, unless you do quests for XP and not because you actually enjoy the quests themselves. It's like saying that some mod called "Always Lots of Gold from Quests" is an essential mod; it's not, because the game is tuned for this specific XP/gold curve. The fact that some enjoy this mod because they get more XP out of their play time is just a different point. Nitpicker's Patch is OK but barely noticeable, let alone essential. Torch Hold is fine, but a small QoL mod; the game will not change drastically because of it.Instead, I would like to suggest for example "Immersive Motion" (improves a lot the jerky and imprecise transitional animations in the vanilla controls, one of the few low points of the game); or "Autoloot Configurable All-In-One" (streamlines the looting process, letting you focus on itemization rather than clicking corpses). Honorable mention: "Alternate Horse Controls" (part of Immersive Cam); changes the horse controls to a more intuitive/easier one, based on reins and spurs. Not so essential, but it gives an exceptional riding experience.

  • Koustav Das

    Is there any mod for fix the horse?

  • LawZerk

    what you said between 0:43 and 0:55 made me realize that the witcher 3 is one of the only games I don't have that problem with. Every quest is just so detailed and good ,in my opinion, that I will do them no matter what I get for it

  • ZioNerd

    i hate mods that destroy gameplaythe only mod i use is the one whi increased the weigh u can carry

  • Demon with a Glass Hand Nemesis

    CHEATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go play a Mario game.

  • Joel Bacon

    So those last 2 you mentioned sound like they are doing several of the small fixes i was thinking needed done. Maybe the dev team will take notice and fix some of these things in later versions. Gotta love all the hard work people put into fixing thes things. Potions from quick menu sounds like a dream come true.

  • Rhoam Bosphoramus Hyrule

    You need to improve your concept of what "essential" is

  • kinglouiexx

    Watching july 2018, i think you can be a really good youtuber. I mean your videos are surprisingly enjoyable and pleasant, i am rooting for your success. Subbed.

  • BasedSif

    For some reason the nitpicker patch mod doesnt allow my game to start. And I’ve tried the lite version. I have EE installed so that might have something to do with it...

  • Chamath Amarasinghe

    -Roach mod which makes him not to stop in front of obstacles-Relic Gear upgrade system-Better icons

  • Matt G-B

    I know this video is super old now.But you can already toggle the hud in the game with any key you want. Just go to key bindings and go to the bottom, click to unlock the bindings and make it whatever you want. Then you just re lock them. The default key is 'home'

  • RON SWAN

    people don't know how to ignore the hud? when i play this game i forget to look at the hud

  • Bogdan 96

    The ONLY mod we need is one who replace fucking old man Geralt with Ciri and has voice acting and animations right! This is the dream!

  • The_Real_Big_Boss

    I can't install the mods for this game :(

  • NoLuckScape

    Low rez textures doenst break my imersive expirience

  • PiggyPorkchopMD

    this is ridiculous"My number one mod is always the little baby mod, I'm a care bear by nature and actually hate fun"

  • kalegcos1

    Your number 1 mod was the mod least wanted xD so much cheatxd and also the screen stuff you can already do with a push of a button, the graphic mods I'll have to check out

  • S0K0L

    Amazing video, i love it

  • asilem

    For me personally, no fall damage and fast travel from anywhere (this makes the game a hell of a lot more fun to play for me).
