The Best Survival Mods for Fallout 4
Survival mode is the single most challenging experience in Fallout 4. Not only does the difficulty gets insanely high, but you’re forced make decisions and do things that you wouldn’t normally do. And no matter if you’re knee-deep it or just preparing to take a dive, we’re here to you the best mods and help you survive. Let’s go!
Equip Yourself with the Best Survival Mods for Fallout 4
Survival difficulty in Fallout 4 isn’t without
its problems. Some aspects are far from excellent and they make the whole
experience harder than it needs to be. So, the Survival Options mod gives you
precisely that – more options to fix issues like hunger, thirst, and
exhaustion. It’s a really helpful tool and we recommend using it.
SURVIVAL QUICK SAVE – No Sleep Till Bedtime
Here is a simple, yet
quality of life mod. It gives you an item that you could
actually use to Quick Save your game. You could use this item whenever you
want and also keybind it on a comfortable button, so you’re 100% secured. So,
you no longer have to go to sleep in order to save the game! And the best
part is – this mod works in survival difficulty too!
The Frost Survival Simulator is another challenge
that you can add to your Fallout 4 and one that is very immersive. First of
all, it dismisses all the quests and characters from the base game, so you
enter a totally new experience. The point here is to survive alone in the
cold winter. But, there also many enemies that can kill you, so the mod isn’t
a nice and cozy ride, but rather a harsh and hardcore survival. We dare you
to try it!
We know that every survival
requires a good backpack. Well this mod gives you wide selection of Backpacks
and Duffle bags, both available in different models, colors, and accessories.
You can craft these in the Chemistry Section and you can customize them up to
no end. Honestly, they look incredible in-game and they’re very helpful!
Realistic Survival Damage
The damage you do while playing in survival mode
can be underwhelming. Not only is it sometimes too low, but it’s also
unrealistic. So this mod doubles your damage and also has an option to triple
it if needed. But, it also increases the damage that enemies will do to you,
so beware of that. Overall, the mod is great and provides a more authentic
survival experience with higher risk – higher cost type of gameplay.
Survival Outfit Collection – CBBE Bodyslide –
Outfits are key elements of personalization and
we want to have more of them! And this mod pack has one of the best-looking
outfits for Fallout 4,
both original and practical. And rather than focusing on unrealistic
standards, these outfits have the general feel and look of the Wastelend.
They’re rugged, bloody, and messy – everything that you can expect from
there! Plus, you can mix the different hoodies, pants, and shirts to make
your own style.
Survival Mode Console Enabler
Here is a very convenient tool to use while in
survival difficulty. The Console Enabler allows you to use the command
console while in survival mode, so you can insert instructions and have an
easier time. Everything else works regularly.
JOURNEY – Survival Settlement Fast travel
And if you find the traveling in survival mode
too time-consuming, here is a mod that will enable the Fast Travel there too!
But, this mod comes with three difficulties, one that lets you Fast Travel
everywhere, another that allows you to do that only from settlement to
settlement and the last only between special areas. Which one do you choose?
Unlimited Survival Mode – F4SE
And this is a mod pack that has nearly all of the
above mentioned mods, put all in one. From console usage, to Fast Travel and
compass settings, you can find everything here and use freely in survival
mode whenever you want. Quick Save and Auto Save are also included.
Survival stats widget
Here we have another friendly tool to help you
stay focused and organized. This survival widget will show you your hunger,
thirst, and energy levels, all neatly done in the corner of your screen. It’s
a very simple, but useful mod that we recommend you to use it!
Survival Mode Tweaks – Console – Fast Travel – Auto Save –
This is another all-in-one mod specifically made
for the survival difficulty. The pack features Fast Travel, Auto Save, and
some other tweaks like the command console. It also disables the encumbered
damage and makes sure that companions won’t leave you after you abandon them.
The mod makes the game pretty safe and you need to check it!
Colorful Survival Icons
The Colorful Survival Icons server similar
function to the survival widget above. They help you visually to track your
fatigue, thirst, and hunger, so you wouldn’t forget about them. The icons are
very interactive and they change their colors from green to red, depending on
your needs. Super cool and super handy.
Lore-Friendly Survival Chems
Some items in Fallout 4 can look
very unnatural to their settings, especially the ones in the Chemistry
Stations. So, this mod upgrades the visual graphics of the survival aid
chems. Now, they have a practical and instructional text over them and are
very interesting to play with. On top of that, there are 2 completely new
serums included that you can use freely.
Survival Bunkers v1.5
In survival mode, you’ll need a lot of strategies
places to hide and recover. In this pack you’ll find 30 such hideouts,
ranging from bunkers to shelters and fortifications. They all look highly
realistic and can be excellent defensive options again many enemies,
especially on this difficulty. So don’t miss out on them!
Every survivalist needs a survival knife. This
mod brings you a highly effective one, with natural wooden handle and long
sharp blade. The design is just amazing and we love how it appears in the
game, so we recommend you to give it a go!
If you didn’t like the previous all-in-one tools,
then perhaps the Survival Unlocker will be for you. It does precisely that –
it unlocks those same features like Auto Saving, Quick Saving, and Fast
Traveling, but it also gives you the option to switch back to survival
difficulty if you’ve had it changed in the meanwhile.
Commonwealth Survivalist Gear
And if you want to properly gear
up, use this mod! The pack has a total of twelve unique outfits which are
actually composed of standalone items. So you can additionally customize and
combine them to create your own outfit. The textures
of these items are all high quality and their styles range from casual to
hardcore and post-apocalyptic. Choose your own!
Console Enabled in Survival
And we end this list on a similar note that we
started it. Here is one more way to enable the console usage on survival
difficulty in Fallout 4. Honestly, there is no much difference in which one
of these mods you use, because it’s all personal preference. This particular
one is very simple and easy to use, so it might be the perfect pick for you.
