10 Best Fallout 4 Armor mods for PS4 in 2018


GamingFallout 410 Best Fallout 4 Armor mods for PS4 in 2018

Unfortunately, armor mods in Fallout 4 are quite limited when it comes to the PS4 due to Sony not allowing external assets. This removes around 80% of possible mods, and anything that is remotely unique. This is terrible for PS4 players, as Fallout 4 is a fantastic game, and one that relies heavily on mods to make it even more enjoyable.

With that said, we still took a look at the Bethesda website and found some modifications that tweak and enhance Fallout 4 when it comes to armor and clothing.
