The Baldur’s Gate 3 modding community has put out content for just about any need or want by now, both in terms of cosmetics and function. Want to change your companions’ appearances? You can do it. Change the inventory system? Change combat mechanics? You can do all that too! In this list of the current best Baldur’s Gate 3 mods, we’ll be going over some of the most useful functionality mods for the game.

It’s best if you use BG3 Mod Manager to install and manage all of the mods included in this list. As a matter of fact, some of them require it. It’s just best to have it installed. Some players use Vortex instead, but it seems to have issues with some mods. At the time of writing, BG3 Mod Manager is the more stable option.

Every mod in this list is on Nexus. Each mod link goes to Nexus, though BG3 Mod Manager and Norbyte’s Script Extender are both found on Github instead.

The Best Baldur’s Gate 3 Mods

Bags Bags Bags

This is a particularly popular mod, for very good reason. Bags Bags Bags adds over 20 containers you can buy from vendors, each one meant for a particular item type, with the goal of de-cluttering your inventory. You can get containers for scrolls, arrows, books, armor, each time of equipment, and more. This one’s a boon to anyone tired of sick of trying to navigate their inventory. You can download it here.

Better Containers

Better Containers is worth listing alongside Bags Bags Bags, since with the latter you’ll be dealing more with containers than your typical inventory. Better Containers expands the tiny 3×5 container grid to a more usable 5×5 or 6×7 grid. If you get Bags Bags Bags, you’ll want Better Containers to go with it. You can download it here.

Teleport Party to You Spell

This mod requires Norbyte’s Script Extender, but it’s worth it! Have your party members gotten stuck on the other end of terrain you’ve jumped over? Do you like to send Astarion off to pilfer but hate having to bring him back? The Teleport Party to You Spell solves these pathfinding issues with one single single spell. This one might cause issues in multiplayer, but it works like a dream in a singleplayer campaign. You can grab this mod here.

Complete Mage Hand Fix and Rework

This mod requires Norbyte’s Script Extender. Mage Hand is has its uses in the vanilla game, but why not give it some extra functionality? This version of Mage Hand improves as you level, and it’s able to pick locks, use doors and levers, open containers, disarm traps, and more. It’s crazy how much functionality this mod adds to this cantrip, so much so it has its own inventory to store what it grabs for you. You can download this mod on the Nexus.


This mod is straightforward: It prevents NPCs from fleeing from your summons and Druid animal forms. That’s it. And you know what? You know if you’re the sort of player who wants this sort of mod, so just head on over and give it a download.

Camp Event Notifications

This is another one that requires Norbyte’s Script Extender. That might seem like a bit of a hassle, but consider this: Using this mod, you’ll get an exclamation point over your head whenever there’s a new companion event at camp. This way you won’t be late on important companion conversations, which is more common than you might think! As a reminder, some of these interactions will require a long rest rather than simply visiting camp. You can download this mod here, and be sure to get its dependency mods above.

More Gold

This one does exactly what it sounds like: It gives a flat gold multiplier of your choosing, either x2, x5, or x10. This one’s a bit of a cheat, but it’s worth it if you’ve been through enough playthroughs or just don’t want to loot everything for small sums of gold. You can download it here.

Immersive AI

Most AI mods aim to make the game either easier or more difficult, but this one simply aims to make it more varied. Using this mod, enemy AI will play a little more to your enemies’ strengths and personalities. This one’s a little hard to describe, but this mod packs nearly 10 times the amount of code and actually makes each fight vary from the last. More than worth a download, which you can do right here.

Modular Highlight Tooltip

Why not customize which doodads are highlighted when you hold alt? That’s right, you can’t answer why not. The Modular Highlight Tooltip mod allows you to customize what is and is not highlighted when you hold the Alt key while wandering around. No longer will you have to see opened containers while holding it, finally you can have buttons and levers highlighted in a different color, and containers such as bookshelves will be highlighted. You can pick this mod up here.

Faster Dice Menu

I’m not sure how much time any Baldur’s Gate 3 player has spent watching the dice roll, but it’s too much time. This mod cuts out a portion of the dice rolling animation so you don’t have to rapidly click to move it along, nor do you have to wait for it to get done. It just does in an instant, and you can move on with your adventure. Check out the Faster Dice Menu here.

Control Your Rolls

This one is a bit of a cheat mod, similar to the More Gold one listed earlier on this list. Control Your Rolls adds an instrument you can get from a chest in the tutorial, as well as three vendors, including Arron in Emerald Grove. You can use it to give yourself massive buffs to rolls for combat, exploration, and conversations. It also adds a number of shiny features like all Speak spells, incredibly Advantage in combat, and max damage. Scratch the “bit of a cheat mod” claim, it’s just a full on cheat mod. Give it a go, though, if this all sounds good. Sometimes it’s just nice to be overpowered.

Speed Mod (Faster or slower gameplay)

This one requires the Native Mod Loader to use, but it’s well-worth it if you’ve been through the game a time or two and don’t have the patience to do it at normal speed again. You can set up to nine different speed presets with this mod, which you can bind to hotkeys to bounce between as you progress through the game. It comes natively with x3, x6, x9 presets but they can be set to any you like. x2 and x3 are good enough for me. Try it out yourself, here’s the Nexus page.

That’s it for our best Baldur’s Gate 3 mods list, which is sure to change as time goes on and the modding community puts even more work into adding their own flair to Larian’s CRPG. Check out our full library of Baldur’s Gate 3 guides here on GameSkinny.
