launched without much in the way of mod support, but a creative PC community is always going to do whatever it can to add its own changes to newly released games. And that's precisely what players of Techland's latest title have done, already giving us an initial list of the best mods.
Playing the game as intended is always a viable option, but if you're the type who enjoys tweaking the graphics, removing annoyances, or adding additional challenges, our list of the best Dying Light 2 mods likely has something for you.

Dying Light 2 Developer Menu
Does what it says on the tin. Theadds the developer menu back to the game under Hints. This is a very useful tool that lets you tweak different aspects of the game, like the amount of old world money you have, help you get past certain bugs, or just messing around.
Expanded FOV Options
Not having good peripheral awareness can kill you in Dying Light 2, so thesecan certainly help you see the big picture.
Overwrite Keyboard Bindings
is a simple mod that really does make life so much better for anyone who dislikes having keybindings hardwired into a game. It's your keyboard and you should be able to use any key you like. Now you can.
Unlimited Weapon Durability
If you're tired of seeing your weapons wear out and break on you, themod is a perfect pick. It's simple, practical, and even if it feels a little bit cheaty, sometimes you'd just prefer not to deal with wear and tear in a video game.
No More Trails
If you don't like the weapon trails, themod happily removes them, adding a more realistic feel to your playthrough.
Extreme Nights V2 - The Return of the King
If you're spending your time in-game waiting for night to fall, you might think life in Villedor is a little too easy. Enter, a mod that ramps up the challenge by doubling the length of the night, halving the length of the day, and doubling the night time zombie crowd density. In addition, dangerous Volatile infected spawn when chases start.
Skip All Intros
Sometimes, loading into a game and sitting through the company marketing every single time can really start to irk. With, you can save yourself the headache and get right into the fun.
Immersive HUD Customization
Themod lets you tweak your HUD to your heart's content. Remove the radar, crosshair, health, weapon, and any number of additional details to become more immersed in the world.
A Bit Done Reshade
While there's absolutely nothing wrong with the graphics as is, you might want to take a look at. It punches up the colour and shadow and brings out a few more details of the surrounding textures.
No Postprocesing Effects
This mod enables a cleaner visual experience by removing postprocessing effects such as sharpness, chromatic aberration, lens flare, depth of field, and others.
The Golden Vendor
The Golden Vendor mod makes Dying Light 2's traders sell only artifact quality gear while adding more crafting parts and ingredients to their inventories. In addition, items should also be cheaper than in the vanilla game. Get it from Nexus Mods.
Easy Lock Picking
If lockpicking is giving you a hard time while trying to uncover Villedor's riches, this Dying Light 2 mod is worth giving a try. It makes breaking picks harder while reducing the number required to force locks. Find it on Nexus Mods.
