The virtue of the PC and its games is their flexibility - and Baldur's Gate 3 is no exception, as some very fun mods have already started to appear.


We'll be taking a look at the best of the best Baldur's Gate 3 mods, fan-made hacks and cheats for PC.

Despite the game having only recently launched in full, the early-access period has allowed for mods to be in development for quite some time, and some really do elevate the experience. We wouldn't be at all surprised if some of these made their way into official patches.

As a disclaimer, it's best to use these mods on a different save. You could potentially corrupt your main save, and given how many hours we've put into BG3 already - we'd be heartbroken if we lost all that progress (though it would be a good excuse to replay it).

But enough chit-chat, you're here for the mods, so read on to see how to enhance your BG3 experience!

How to use mods in Baldur’s Gate 3

Before we begin, feel free to check out this awesome video from YouTuber Mmogurl down below. They explain the mod installation process nice and clear:

To begin with, you'll need to download an app called Baldur's Gate 3 Mod Manager. This will save you manually altering the in-game files.

Once you've got the mod manager installed, head over to whichever mod site you have in mind. If you're not sure where to start, Nexus is a good bet. One you've found the mod you want, click to download it, then place the .pak file into the mod file in Baldur's Gate 3. Once this is done, open the mod manager and drag the new mod into the "Active Mods" side.

Now you should be ready to go! Make sure to read the instructions, so you know how to find or activate the mod once you're in the game.

Best Baldur’s Gate 3 mods so far

Now, let's have a look at the mods available... we'll list our favourites so far.

WASD Character Movement

This mod adds WASD keyboard controls to make the game control more like Dragon Age than a traditional CRPG. It mimics the same movement you have when using a controller but without the radial menus.

Native Camera Tweaks

This nifty mod unlocks the camera and lets you get up close and personal to enjoy the finer details. Combined with the WASD Character Movement mod, this makes Baldur's Gate 3 control a lot more like other modern third-person RPG game.

Customiser’s Compendium

If you're gutted that there's no real option to change appearance once the game has started, this is the mod for you. It even has more customisable option that the initial creation screen, so download this if you care about your looks!

Multiclass Unlocker

This is the first big mod release since the game dropped properly yesterday, and it does exactly what it says on the tin. You're already able to combine attributes from different classes in the game... except on easy mode. This hardly seems fair, so install this mod to multi-class on any difficulty.

Choose Your Stats

An all-out cheat, but fun for messing about with nonetheless. Use this mod to manually change your stats and become an unbeatable badass without the hard work!

5e Spells

And we'll finish with a magic one, which seems apt for a Baldur's Gate mod list. Use this mod to add a bucketload of spells to your inventory!

We'll add a quick disclaimer that a lot of these mods are from the game's early-access, and there will be a lot more on the way now the full game has been released. We'll update this page as soon as an exciting mod pops up!
