Minecraft has thousands of mods for you to choose from and it might be hard to spot the best out of the bunch. In this post, I will be showing you the 50 best Minecraft mods of 2022. The mods will have a range of categories ranging from power-based mods to magic and even just utility mods that make playing the game more entertaining. If you are having a hard time finding the right mods for you then check out the article below. The only mod that I will mention up here is optifine because it is just a mod that makes Minecraft’s fps run faster and gives it HD textures and it really doesn’t affect gameplay at all.
#50 Modular Powersuits
Modular Powersuits is a really strong upgradable powerful to Minecraft that will give you many abilities. This mod is very useful and fun to use due to the abilities that the power suit adds. The power suit is really strong and works well with other mods so you should definitely try this mod out on your Minecraft adventure.
#49 PneumaticCraft: Repressurized
Pneumaticcraft is a mod that uses pressure to power its machines. This mechanic of pressure is completely unique to this mod and feels really great to use. The machines and tools the mod adds are all really great options to automate your base. If you are looking for a unique mod that functions all on its own.
Quark is a very unique mod due to the fact that everything that Quark adds could also is added to the default game without ruining the vanilla Minecraft experience. The mod is mostly used by streamers and YouTubers to make cool contraptions to their world. If you are looking for a more vanilla Minecraft experience then check out this mod.
#47 Simply Jetpacks 2
Simply Jetpacks 2 is a very nice utility mod that will add many different kinds of jetpacks into the game. These jetpacks are all very on the power and the usage but will make traveling easier and way more enjoyable. If you need a way to fly around your world in Minecraft then I suggest you check out the Simply Jetpacks 2 mod.
#46 Industrial Craft
Industrial Craft 2 is one of those power mods that adds a whole bunch of machines to the game, allowing you to automate production. This mod uses its own energy system which knocks it down a peg for me but is a handy and creative mod for end-game content. If you use this mod with the Mekanism’s mod you will be able to use any power system to use this mods machines which makes this mod way better in a mod pack scenario but when it’s by itself it is just average.
#45 Random Things
Random Things is one of those really fun mods that adds a bunch of strange and very useful tools to the game. Everything this mod adds will help you in all aspects of the game. My favorite part of this mod is the personal dimension it adds to the game. I would use these personal dimensions mostly for storage when playing on a server. The mod is very unique and random but very useful and I suggest you check it out.
Evilcraft is one of those mods that are annoying to get into. This mod allows you to mess around with dark magic and evil entities. The mod will allow you to buff your soul and allows you to make a broomstick that flies really fast. The mod also adds some really fun supernatural beings that you can play around with. If you are looking for a fun and powerful mod that is also very unique then check EvilCraft out.
BetterPortals is one of the many realistic portals mods that renders the nether in real-time. The mod is great for realism but can cause lag spikes on bad computers. It will generate both the nether and the overworld at the same time making portals look and feel way more immersive. If you hate the nether portals like me then this is a great mod that will change the way they work completely.
RFTools is one of those mods that every mod pack will have. This mod adds many unique machines that I suggest you check out yourself but the biggest thing this mod adds is a dimension teleporter. With this mod, you can make and power your own personal dimension. This mod’s storage option is also unique and helpful if your base is cluttered. I definitely suggest you check this mod out if you are looking for a nice and quiet place to build your base.
DimensionalDoors is a really cool and creative mod that adds doors that lead to random dimensions. These dimensions will either kill you or reward you and be very careful not to fall into the void. If you fall into the void you will go to a spooky dimension where you need to mine down quickly or you will get killed by some supernatural being. I suggest you be very careful in these new dimensions because it is easy to get lost and lose all the items on you.
ComputerCraft is a programmer’s mod for programmers. You will be able to program literally anything in the world but the biggest part is the turtles that you can program to do that for you. The computers are the greatest for those who like to set up big machines that need displays and such. If you are a programmer then you should check out this mod because it was made for you.
Decocraft is a mod that adds a bunch of decoration blocks like tables, lamps, chairs, and plushies. This mod is in almost every mod pack and is really great for more realistic builds that you might want to make. The recipes are all really easy to understand as well. If you are looking for some nice decorations to add to your Minecraft build then check out decocraft.
The SwingThroughGrass mod is an extremely simple mod that is just great. Depending on the Minecraft version you play the combat is different. But what this mod does is it allows you to swing through tall grass instead of breaking it. This is something Minecraft needs especially when you are swarmed with mobs.
#37 Aquaculture 2
Aquaculture 2 is a mod that rewards those who like to fish. Vanilla Minecraft’s fishing is very boring so this mod scrapes that entirely and adds a loot box system that functions really great. It will give you all sorts of materials that will help you which will include iron, gold, and diamonds. The new fishing mechanics is very refreshing and I suggest you try them out. If you are a fisher at heart and want to make fishing way more exciting then check out this mod.

The mod was designed to help fill in those empty spaces that might plague your builds. If you need some decorations then check out BiblioCraft.
Baubles is an extremely useful mod that will allow you to equip rings in the new baubles inventory section it adds. The mod is mostly used for Botania but any mod that adds rings will work with it. This allows you to become insanely strong if you use the right ring combinations. If you are playing a mod that adds rings or belts and other equipable then you definitely will need this mod.
The Waystones mod is very simple and straightforward. this mod allows you to teleport between way stones that you will find scattered around your world.

The best machine this mod adds is the alloy smelter which will smelt items extremely fast as well as being really easy to make. The biggest thing that makes this mod different from other machine mods is that it will have you hunting down creatures for their drops. I always find myself using this mod for smelting things and if I do then you might as well.
Galacticraft is an extremely fun exploration mod. This mod adds a few planets that you can visit by building a rocket and flying to them. these planets are filled with their own towns and resources to find. The planets it adds are all really fun and cool to explore and I suggest you check this mod out for yourself. Most of the machines this mod adds are pretty crappy and are only useful for space exploration so if you arent gonna go into space you don’t need any of the machines.

Minecraftory Reloaded is another extremely useful power mod that adds a bunch of machines. these machines will range from farming to a laser that will spawn ores. The mod is really useful and it has some of the best machines for farming and even mining. If you are gonna play with all the other power mods I suggested then definitely use this one as well.
