Baldur’s Gate 3 launches with a staggering amount of content that can easily eat up hundreds of hours while providing what could be the best RPG experience in a long while. But as much as it’s a blast to play as its developer intended, picking up some of the best mods currently available can both spice things up and introduce needed quality of life changes.
A few of the best BG3 mods actually made their presence felt as soon as the game entered early access and, despite the full version’s lack of official mod support at launch, the community has already done a stellar job of tweaking different aspects of the game.
The Best Baldur's Gate 3 Mods
Our picks for the best Baldur’s Gate 3 mods introduce more cosmetic options, increase the number of spells available, but also make it so that more characters can join your party as it adventures throughout Faerûn.
Modders are also unlikely to stop tinkering with game files, so there’s a good chance that we’ll get a constant stream of fresh additions for the foreseeable future, especially given the game’s popularity.
Nonetheless, as with all games, there’s a chance that new patches may break mods. If you install one or more from our list of the best BG3 mods, it’s worth keeping in mind that their creators can sometimes take longer to update the mods themselves.
As of late February 2024, official cross-platform mod support is confirmed to be in the works. With a bit of luck, we might see it released later in the year.

An expected entry on our list of the best BG3 mods, ImprovedUI does precisely what its name suggests and more.

It also adds a smaller version of the minimap alongside the option of removing it altogether. Get it from Nexus Mods.
Party Limit Begone
It’s never great to fight your way through a challenging dungeon only to realize that your lockpicking skills are no match for the chest at the end. Luckily, this Baldur’s Gate 3 mod increases the party size limit to 16 in single-player and 8 in multiplayer. You’ll never have to feel bad about leaving Astarion back at camp. Download it from Nexus Mods.
Bags Bags Bags

Tav's Hair Salon
Tav’s Hair Salon is one entry on our list of the best BG3 mods that increases the amount of selectable hairstyles when creating your character. A new look is fitting for a new playthrough, and you’ll get yours via Nexus Mods.
Baldur’s Gate 3 does an excellent job of adapting Dungeons and Dragons 5E but, if you’re missing some of the spells from the tabletop, this mod likely has you covered. Not only does it add several spells that aren’t part of the base game, but it also tweaks a number of existing ones. Grab it from Nexus Mods.
Native Camera Tweaks
BG3’s camera can sometimes be difficult to work with, especially when elevation comes into play.
