Look, no one likes carry weight in RPGs, and it becomes especially annoying when you like to loot everything. It’s a tedious part of inventory management that can get in the way of enjoyment. It’s no different in Baldur’s Gate 3, but you can dramatically increase your carry weight using this very useful mod.

Increase Carry Weight in Baldur’s Gate 3

This mod by NexusMods user Avalonica doesn’t remove the carry weight, but massively increases it so you don’t have to worry about it again. There are a few options, but the recommended one basically multiplies it by a thousand so you’re basically set for the full game.

  • Now, you need to focus on the following section
  • Add the following code under <children>
<node id="ModuleShortDesc">
             <attribute id="Folder" type="LSString" value="GustavDev"/>
             <attribute id="MD5" type="LSString" value=""/>
             <attribute id="Name" type="LSString" value="GustavDev"/>
             <attribute id="UUID" type="FixedString" value="28ac9ce2-2aba-8cda-b3b5-6e922f71b6b8"/>
             <attribute id="Version64" type="int64" value="36028797018963968"/>
  • It should look like this after you are done
