Best Fallout 4 Armor Mods for PS4


Fallout 4Fallout 4 ModsBest Fallout 4 Armor Mods for PS4

There are a few armor mods available for Fallout 4 on PS4. They don’t use external assets of course, but still feel unique and new with the bonuses they give, or the ways in which you can obtain them.

Unfortunately, PS4 players have it the worst when it comes to modding Fallout 4. Due to heavy restrictions by Sony, no external assets are allowed to be used, meaning no new models, textures, sounds etc. This means it’s hard to find a lot of great mods that we usually see on Xbox and PC. 

The mods in this list are in no particular order, and all the buttons below link back to where you can download them on your PS4. Here at PwrDown, we’ve covered many more lists like this for Fallout 4 PS4 Mods!

UCO Base Game

UCO, which stands for Unified Clothing Overhaul is designed to provide players with many different options to customize both the appearance and function of gear. Some of the most important features of this mod are Armor layering, legendary swap and the ability to upgrade all armor pieces to use ballistic weave.

Legendary Modification

Legendary Modification simply allows you to attach any legendary modification to a piece of armor or weapon. No longer will you have to constantly search the game world and hope to find the one you want. However you will still require materials to craft a legendary modification.

Unlock Ballistic Weave

unlock ballistic weave

This mod allows you to unlock Ballistic Weave modifications straight away, instead of having to complete a quest line at the Rail Road. However it doesn’t change the material cost, perk requirements or the type of armor pieces that ballistic weave can be applied to. It is compatible with UCO above though.

Separate Coats

Separate coats adds two new craftable coats to Fallout 4 under the Chemistry station. These are the Bomber Jacket from the Brotherhood of Steel Vertiberd Pilots and Elder Maxsons Battle Coat. The coats can be worn over any of the vanilla armor pieces in-game.

Unlimited Carryweight Ring

This mod adds a ring to the game, which when worn will give you unlimited carry weight. Whilst it’s not really a piece of armor, it still deserves a place on this list. Now you’ll be able to carry as much Armor as you’d like in Fallout 4, without having to worry about being over encumbered. 



AWKCR stands for Armor & Weapon Keywords Community Resource, and is a requirement for most other armor mods. Some of the main things it does is prevent mod conflicts, creates an armor and weapons workbench to craft modded armor pieces and much more.

Legendary Recon Marine Armor

This mod makes some changes to the Recon Marine Armor from the Far Harbor DLC in Fallout 4. Specifically, it changes the carry weight provided by the armor, adds ballistic weave to the wetsuit and helmet and adds a full set of Legendary Recon Marine Armor.



This mod adds two two sections to the Chemistry station, these are Laundromat Clean and Laundromat Dirty. You are able to turn dirty clothes into clean versions and vice versa. Cleaning clothing will cost some Abraxo Cleaner & Purified Water, whilst dirtying them will require dirty water.



FreeMaker allows you to craft items in Fallout 4 without any material or perk requirements. This means you can craft practically any armor you want for free under the armor bench.

NPC Clothing Changer

Finally, we have the NPC Clothing Changer Mod. This mod won’t add any new armor for your own character, but will allow you to customize all the outfits Fallout 4 NPC’s wear. You can grab the ring that allows you to change NPC clothes under the Water Tower next to Red Rocket. Currently, there are over 200 outfits included with the mod.
