In this guide, we’re going to show you some of the best Weapon mods for Fallout 4 on the Xbox One & Xbox One X! Bethesda games are well known for their modding scenes, as Fallout & Skyrim always take the top spots for number of mods in a video game.
In this post, we won’t just be showing new weapons, but some modifications that change the way the weapons work too, or amplify the experience.
WWII Colt 1911
WWII Colt 1911 mod download
This mod adds the icon .45 Colt 1911 Pistol into Fallout 4. It can be modified, changing the grip, receiver or even the muzzle to turn it into a silenced pistol. After adding this pistol to the game, you can create it under the chemistry station. I use this weapon in my own play-through and use it all the time!
Alien Assault Rifle
Alien Assault Rifle mod download
Adds a new range of weapons to the game, Alien weapons. Whilst the mod is called ‘Alien Assault rifle’, you can convert it into a Shotgun, SMG, Sniper or Beam Rifle. It can be found near the UFO crash site, and has many customisation options including sights, muzzles, receivers, stocks and much more.
SCAR-H mod download
This mod adds a SCAR-H Assault Rifle to your Fallout 4 game. The SCAR-H comes with a few customisation options, such as sights, receivers, finishers, muzzles, magazines and more. The developer states that this mod is suitable at any point through your play through, and modifications will make it much stronger late game.
M1 Garand mod download
Adds the classic M1 Garand to the Commonwealth, with custom sounds, animations, models & textures. It can be acquired in game from gunners, raiders or vendors and makes a great addition to all the other weapon mods on this list! This weapon has a few customisation options such as changing the sites of receivers.
RU556 Assault Rife
RU556 Assault Rifle mod download
Installing this weapon mod to Fallout 4 will add a new RU556 Assault Rifle to the Commonwealth. It comes with custom sounds, models, textures and animations. Whilst it can be crafted and highly customised, it’s been added to the levelled lists and will spawn on Gunners, Traders & Merchants as well as inside containers in the world.
MK14 EBR mod download
By choosing to install this mod, you’ll get a whole new customizable rifle to use in the Commonwealth! Overall, it features 6 scopes, 3+1 stocks, 3 muzzle attachments, 2 barrel lengths, flashlight and semi/fully auto capabilities. You can find this weapon in a few locations, most noticeably in Diamond City or on the Prydwen.
See through scopes
See through scopes mod download
Whilst this mod doesn’t add any weapons to Fallout 4, it does add some new scopes, mainly short and medium range scopes that you can see through. They act like iron sights, and the reticle of the scopes can be customised in game. The scopes work at 2.5x, 4x and 8x magnification and work with most of the vanilla weapons.
Holstered Weapons mod download
This mod adds Holstered Weapons to both male and female characters in Fallout 4, allowing you to carry weapons on your back to add a bit more immersion and realism. Unfortunately, they only work with specific weapons and have to crafted individually at a Chemistry Workstation, giving a small armor bonus when equipped.
Crossbows of the Commonwealth
Crossbows of the Commonwealth mod download
Instead of adding new types of guns, this mod adds a whole new weapon type, the Crossbow. They have a lot of customisation, from scopes to bolts. Use fire bolts or armor piercing, attach a bayonet or even attach a bayonet to the bow. It’s one of the best Weapon mods available in Fallout 4 for sure, and feels the most complete.
Modern Firearms mod download
One of the best weapon mods for Fallout 4 on the Xbox One would have to be Modern Firearms (Tactical edition). It adds a whole load of new weapons to the game, which will also be added to loot, enemies and vendors in the Commonwealth. All the weapons are modelled very nicely and have realistic looking textures!
