The best Among Us mods

One of the reasons Among Us took off in popularity was how simple the game is to understand. It has charming, but basic graphics, and the mechanics of one team trying to secretly kill the other without getting caught was hugely appealing. bur what made it so accessible were the social elements where everyone would argue their case and try to convince others of who the killer was to send them out of the airlock. As great as that simplicity is, it does eventually get a little old even with the new roles added in 2021. Among Us mods breathe new life into this fantastic game with quality-of-life upgrades and entirely new ways to play. We understand that a lot of mods out there are pretty sus, but you can trust that these are the best ones available.

A custom Among Us game menu.

The easiest mod to recommend is one you don’t need to tinker around with to get working. offers simple instructions on how to use this custom launcher to access free and public modded Among Us servers with people all over the world. That means you don’t have to gather a bunch of friends who all have the same mod to play. In total, this launcher lets you play over 10 new custom mod servers, including Slenderman, Cops & Robbers, Jester, CrazyColors, and more. Each one changes up the base game in fun and unique ways that are a blast to experience. There’s even a community Discord where you can hang out and coordinate games with others using the launcher.

The only real flaw with the base Among Us game is the lack of voice chat. In a game as fast-paced and social as this, typing just doesn’t cut it, which is why just about everyone has adopted Discord to fill that gap. Discord does have its flaws when it comes to making it an immersive experience, unlike the BetterCrewLink mod that adds not only voice chat, but proximity voice chat. That means, just like in a game like Lethal Company, you can only speak to and hear players that are physically close to your character. Just like no one can hear you scream in space, this mod makes sure no one will hear you scream if you wander off alone and get backstabbed.

Town of Us

The most popular form of mods are ones that add new roles to the default pair of crewmates and imposters. You could pick and choose from all the various mods adding one or two, but why not just get all the best in one big bundle? Town of Us adds dozens of new roles to crewmates and imposters, plus a third neutral faction. Each one has its own special ability, role, and sometimes even a unique win condition that could result in neither of the traditional sides winning. For example, the Jester wins if that player is the first person voted out, while the executioner wins if they can get one specific player assigned to them eliminated. There are even a handful of new modifiers if all the new roles didn’t make things confusing enough.

Streamers Hat Pack

Let’s be honest, most of us got into Among Us after it blew up on Twitch. Watching our favorite streamers bumble their way through the game inspired us to do the same, so why not show your appreciation for your favorite content creator by donning a cosmetic item representing them? The Streamers Hat Pack doesn’t cover every big streamer out there, but it does manage to represent many of the ones you at least know about. There’s a flower for LilyPichu, Disguised Toast’s mask, Jackspeticeye’s eye, and more on the way like Valkyrae’s hair. More ways to customize your little jumpsuit spaceman or woman are always welcome.

Besides new cosmetic items, colors are the primary way you can express yourself in Among Us. As we all know, the default color selection is very limited, which is why the ColorsPlus mod is so handy. It brings the total color options up to 256, with four being new dynamic colors. What’s best is that this mod works on all official servers, although only you and anyone else with this mod will be able to see the custom colors.

The best Fallout 3 mods
An alpha deathclaw enforcer attacking in Fallout 3.

Right alongside Skyrim, Fallout 3 is one of the most modded games of all time. Bethesda took this series and transformed it into an open-world adventure that had never really been seen up to that point. As much as there was to do in that base experience, there was a limit to what could be done. However, dedicated fans didn't let that end their fun and began modding the game with new features, quality of life improvements, and new content to extend the life of Fallout 3 to the point where you can still play it today and have an amazing time. Now that modders have had well over a decade to work with the game, there are potentially thousands of mods you can try out, but these are the best ones we've found.
FWE - FO3 Wanderers Edition

Let's kick things off with a bang and talk about the FWE - FO3 Wanderers Edition mod. Calling this a single mod is kind of a misnomer since it actually integrates over 50 other mods into one massive package. The purpose is to rework the balance and depth of the game to be more fair and give players more opportunities to role-play. This mod does make the game intentionally harder than the base version. Combat is faster and more determined by player skilll. Also, which perks and skills you have make a bigger difference. Injuries need to be treated more carefully, over 40 new weapons and pieces of armor have been added, AI has been enhanced, and dozens of other changes were implemented to make the game more immersive. It's the simplest way to give another playthrough some spice.

The best Fallout 76 mods
Fallout 76 covered in snow.

It's fair to say that Fallout 76 wasn't exactly what fans were hoping for when it launched. Instead of being a single-player RPG like Fallout 4, 3, and New Vegas, 76 was a pseudo MMO where you joined multiplayer servers to play in a persistent world. A multiplayer Falloutsounds great on paper, but the execution wasn't what people were looking for. Many years and updates later, the game is in a far better state, but not quite up to the standard of some hardcore fans. However, Bethesda games are among the most famous for the quality of mods made for them, and at this point, there are thousands of mods available for Fallout 76. We've scoured every inch of Appalachia to collect only the best Fallout 76 mods.
Ultimist's High Detailed Map Plus

The default map in Fallout 76 looks ripped right out of a tourist's guide. That's cool for theming and everything, but not so useful when trying to find anything besides major locations. The map is surprisingly bare in detail considering how much walking around and exploring you do. Ultimist's High Detailed Map Plus rips up that old map and replaces it with a much more detailed and appealing map to navigate. It marks all the normal locations you need, plus every vendor and 440 resource deposits (which you can toggle on or off to reduce clutter). It might not sound like a big deal, but any Fallout fan knows how much time you spend on the map menu.

The best Fallout 4 mods
Everyone's Best Friend

The Fallout games, at least since Fallout 3, have been absolutely massive games in both scale and popularity. The post-nuclear-war setting is rife with interesting stories to experience and monsters to kill. Fallout 4 was the last single-player entry in the series before Fallout 76 took the game into a persistent multiplayer experience. A large appeal of these games is how you are able to actually role-play and immerse yourself in the game world, which isn't so easy with other players jumping around in their underwear. Thanks to mods, it has never been a better time to revisit the last "pure" Fallout game.

Just like Skyrim, Fallout 4 mods are incredibly popular. Some are inspired to fix the numerous bugs and glitches Bethesda games have become famous for, while others look to add new features. As open and dynamic as the base game is, mods just open the door to an almost endless supply of tools you can use to extend the life of your game. With so many mods available, it can be a little overwhelming to know where to start. We've sorted through all the best Fallout 4 mods out there and came up with the best ones you should install before stepping out of the vault once again.
