Resident Evil 4 Remake is out and it is just as amazing as everyone hoped for. The game is extremely similar to the original – as it should be – but adds just enough changes to keep things fresh. The best part is that there are mods available as well on the PC version. That is why we will show you the 15 best mods in Resident Evil 4 Remake that you can download.
There are so many mods that you can choose from, like adjusting the FOV, making some QOL changes, and adding new character models just to name a few. Check out our guide on how to install mods in Resident Evil 4 Remake to make the process easier.
With that said, if you are looking for the best mods in Resident Evil 4 Remake available right now, you’ve come to the right place!
Ada Wong is one of the most popular characters in the Resident Evil franchise. While we wait for the DLC where you can play as her, why not download this mod and get a head start? You can replace Leon’s model with Ada’s and complete the story as her.
Keep in mind that this does not replace Leon’s voice or certain animations (which look a bit goofy on Ada). However, to scratch that DLC itch, playing as Ada does feel really cool.

Having the ability to adjust your FOV in Resident Evil 4 Remake is a dream come true. Normally, the camera is close to Leon, and you cannot see everything nearby. While this isn’t a bad thing since it builds up tension, seeing more of the screen is much better and will improve your experience.
This way, you won’t miss any enemy or item that might be in the corner of your screen. Keep in mind that this mod does not affect picking up items or cutscenes. So, you can adjust your FOV only for the gameplay sections which is a good thing.
More Visible Bear Traps
Over the course of the game, you will run into tons of bear traps – believe me; you will. In the remake, they are well-hidden so that the players always keep a keen eye on the ground to see where they are going. If you don’t like doing that, you can download this mod and make the bear traps more visible.
The bear traps will change their color to one of the three variants: red, silver, and yellow. This makes it extremely easy to spot them in the grass or other areas where you might normally not see them as easily.
Max Stack Sizes
Sorting out your inventory in Resident Evil 4 is one of the biggest parts of the game. Leon carries a case in which he stores all of his weapons and other items. Sorting out the storage allows you to place more items without having to remove anything.
Thanks to this mod, you can now stack a lot of items to make room for other things in your case. There are various options like max stack/x2/x3/x4/x5. Plus, it also allows you to stack items that couldn’t be done before like grenades, eggs, and resources just to name a few.
Keep in mind that this mod does not give you items, instead only allows you to stack them to the max if you already have them.
One of the best sections of Resident Evil 4 comes pretty early in the game. Yes, it is the village section where you have to fend off countless villagers and the chainsaw man. Since that section is already popular, why not make it better?
This mod allows you to expand the village section so that you can explore more and find tons of new items. Plus, you will encounter more enemies as well, so be careful about that. It gives you more room to move around while you wait for the bell to ring before the villagers can go for bingo.
This mod does exactly what it says; it turns Leon into Keanu Reeves. Due to the improved shooting mechanics of the game, players often feel like John Wick. Well, you can change your character model to better match that vibe now!
Turn into Keanu Reeves and go ballistic on your enemies by unloading your pistol on them. The best part is that the textures look amazing, so you won’t feel like anything is out of place.
No Yellow Paint
From a gameplay perspective, I can completely understand why the developers added the yellow paint to various boxes and other interactable objects. This makes it easier for the players to see which items they can interact with and which are part of the game world.
However, if you would like to fully immerse yourself into the world of Resident Evil 4 Remake, you can install this mod to remove all yellow paint from boxes and other items. It can be a bit confusing since you won’t know which box you can destroy or which window you can jump out of.
Ashley 2B Color Theme
This is a simple texture mod that changes Ashley to resemble 2B from Nier Automata. Due to the new character model of Ashley, modders are having a blast experimenting with her model. I got to say, 2B Ashley looks great and suits the aesthetic of the remake.
Since this is a basic texture mod, it only changes the hair and the color of the outfit of Ashley. It doesn’t impact her model or any voice lines.
Leon Classic Jacket
The remake is an extremely beautiful-looking game. From the terrain to the character models, everything looks great. This is especially true for the main character, Leon. However, you can add to his drip by giving him his classic jacket back from Dead by Daylight.
This mod allows you to replace Leon’s current outfit with his classic brown jacket. It looks superb and suits the overall atmosphere as well.
Ashley With Skirt
Moving on to another Ashley mod, this time, it gives her original skirt back. This mod allows you to alter her current model and replace it with her original skirt from Resident Evil 4. The remake gave Ashley more clothing to better suit the current situation rather than making her look like a high school kid on spring break.
What’s more, is that the remake also removed an infamous achievement – you know which one. So, if you are a person of culture and want to bring back the original skirt, this mod is perfect for you.
No Aiming Zoom
In the remake, if you zoom your weapon, your FOV also zooms in (as it should). However, if you think that the FOV is extremely limited during the zooming-in animation, you can download this mod to help you out. It keeps the original FOV even if you zoom in.
This allows you to see more of your screen and know if an enemy is about to attack you. While you won’t get a zoomed-in look, your aim will still be precise.
You already know we cannot talk about the best mods and not talk about Shrek. Everyone’s favorite ogre makes his return in the remake and replaces Salvador – the chainsaw man – with Shrek’s model. If you weren’t afraid of Salvador already, this mod will make you terrified of him.
Seeing a large green ogre run toward you with a giant chainsaw feels so funny yet scary at the same time. Plus, the expression on his face is always that of a smile. That makes it ten times more terrifying.
Health Bars on Enemies
Alright, hear me out for this one. I know having HP bars on top of enemies will ruin the immersion and reduce the stress. However, it shows new players how many times they need to hit a particular enemy without having to waste any bullets.
Sometimes, you might shoot at enemies that are in their death animation. To stop wasting your precious bullets, you can see the HP bar on top of enemies and know exactly how much health they have left.
With that said, though, I highly suggest that you do not use it during your first playthrough. As aforementioned, it will ruin the experience and remove the tension from the game.
Bingo Time is Over
When you first reach the village section, you will have to fight through a lot of enemies. Eventually, a larger enemy holding a chainsaw will also join the fight. This area is extremely intense and requires you to constantly be on the move while shooting enemies.
After you have killed enough enemies, a small cutscene will play where all the villagers hear a bell and go to the nearby church. This is where Leon says the infamous line “Where’s everyone going, bingo?”
Well, you can remove the church bell and fight the enemies in this section for as long as you want. While you won’t be able to progress the story, you can see how long you can survive in this section.
Ada Wong Black Top
Finally, let’s talk close our list with another Ada Wong mod. This mod allows you to replace her classic red attire with an all-black top. This makes her look even more mysterious – if that was even possible. Ada looks awesome in this outfit as she does all her cool moves.
Plus, you can even use this mod with the first one on the list. So, if you want to play as Ada, you can do so with an all-black outfit.
And there you have it; those are the 15 best mods in Resident Evil 4 Remake that you can download right now. There are tons of mods you can download, but these ones stood out the most and made the game more fun than it already is.
