The best Resident Evil 4 mods will add a bit of customisation to Capcom’s horror caper, whether you’re after something silly, useful, or a combination of the two. As you’d expect, the modding community has already cooked up a charcuterie board of clever tweaks and enhancements, and they add a range of flavours to the base game.

To honour the effort that’s already gone into creating Resident Evil Remake mods, we’ve got a list of some of our favourite additions to what could be one of the best PC games of 2023. So if you’ve experienced everything the vanilla game offers but want to spice up your next run, why not consider downloading some of these mods?

Predictably, most of the Resident Evil 4 Remake mods are character swaps, and it’s not just Leon getting attention. So, for example, if you want to turn Leon’s face into Keanu Reeves, the chainsaw guy into Shrek, or play as CJ from GTA: San Andreas, this is now possible. Whether these character swaps will be compatible with the full game remains to be seen, but in theory, converting them shouldn’t take too much work, or at least we hope it doesn’t.

It’s not just the character model that can change. For those who don’t want the fun to stop, the brilliantly named Never Bingo mod removes both the kill and time limits, turning the campaign into a proper survival mode.

There’s also the Advanced Weapon Framework mod that grants you access to some of the other weapons in the game, while the Chainsaw Knife mod evens the odds by turning Leon’s combat knife into a side-splitting chainsaw. Just ensure you get the Fluffy Mod Manager, as it ensures you keep everything organised while messing around with third-party mods.

If you’re looking for a performance boost, you’ll want to check out the Resident Evil 4 Remake DLSS mod. While Capcom’s horror re-do already features AMD FSR upscaling support, adding Nvidia’s GeForce tool into the mix could boost fps even further

Those are all the best Resident Evil 4 Remake mods so far. It’s not just mods that can add new costumes, and you can see whether the Resident Evil 4 Remake deluxe edition is right for you. Some costumes are only obtainable by completing the horror game at a high rank and difficulty setting, so if you want an idea of how long Resident Evil 4 Remake is, we have a guide on that too.
