Fallout New Vegas Mods:
The Game itself has been here for some time, but because of the mods and the enhancements to the Game driven by community and players, you can still enjoy the game further. Just like our previous article on Fallout 2 Mods, we will give you a complete guide to Fallout New Vegas Mods in this article. So, let’s get started.
New Vegas Mods:
The Mods are Divided into two Categories like;
Graphics Fallout New Vegas Mods:
New Vegas has been around for some time, and unlike the Pubg Mobile, which we discussed, this Game lacks the impact elements of shooting. There are several problems in the Feedback of guns that the gamers hate.
Now, there is a mode called the Impact Mode, which changes the whole impact effect of the bullets when they hit different surfaces and different materials. With this Mode enabled, your Game will show the bullet holes and the particle effects. The Mode further enhances up to the weapons, like with different caliber, the size of the space will increase or decrease. Even the shells of the guns are different from one another, which is excellent for gamers.
Well, when we talk about gaming in 2020, it is hard even to consider that colorless and texture-less graphics of games like New Vegas. The grass and the environment were not too good to look at, especially when you compare those graphics with today.
This is where the Oxide ENB Mod comes in, which will add a whole new atmosphere in the Game with changes in color and gives a more intense look to the Game. To be honest, the Game itself turns into a Wasteland, that does not need excitement.
There are even more clouds, weather, and not to consider a whole new lighting system. All this combines into one can make it one of the best Mods for Graphics. You can also further enhance the Game by using different mods in this Mode.
FNV Realistic Wasteland Lighting:
When people say lighting is the essential thing in graphics, they aren’t messing around because the lighting is the main element in graphics enhancement. The Game itself has many lighting issues, and not to mention this game doesn’t give you the true light.
That is why you can use the Realistic Wasteland Lighting by FNV to adjust the Sunlight intensity automatically and then add a bit of weather on the top to create a more photorealistic effect. Moreover, the Game is turned into the Mojave Desert, and you can feel it!
The ENB of the Apocalypse:
Well, who doesn’t want to create some perfect photo-realism effects in the Game with some subtle changes to the environment that turns the Game into an Apocalyptic event? This Mod does it all, with some noticeable changes to the environment and creating a photo-realism effect.
Well, you might be wondering about the name. But this is not what we are here to talk about; this Mod is considered one of the best mods for Fallout when it comes to the color changes. Originally the Fallout 3 had this Mod that turned its colorless green shades into a much Sharpe and desert-like feel by bringing a bit of hot tone to it.
This is what this Mod is all about; it gives New Vegas a more realistic and intense look by bringing Orange shade. There is more warmth to the Game, which is similar to the desert or the tone of the Game. Altogether the whole Game and especially the desert turns into a much more realistic looking place.
HQ Dust Storm FX:
Fallout New Vegas is all about the Wasteland and the dusty look; that is why this Game happens to have a period of time where dust storms arrive, but to be honest, that period is taken as only a fog which lets you close your eyes and unsee it.
This is where the HQ Dust Storm FX comes in, which brings a crazy and realistic dust storm into the Game. The clouds which were heavy and whipped up by sand, are now converted into much more realistic dust storm clouds having that nightmare like feels to it.
Gameplay Fallout New Vegas Mods:
Weapons of the New Millenia:

The Weapons of New Millenia is a mod in New Vegas that will bring 45 new guns. These guns are not the typical New Vegas-style guns but rather guns that have Textures and high definition models. These guns are taken from most famous fps games like the Call of Duty and even the ARMA; that is why they will surely bring you the optimal gun experience in-game.
New Vegas Enhanced Camera:
If you have been playing New Vegas for a while, then you might have figured that the camera of New Vegas feels disturbing to the gameplay and the player perspective. The camera is always in the way through those bulging eyes that are floating. The most common solution to this person found was that they converted the camera to the third person, which makes the game even harder.
This is where the New Vegas Enhanced Camera comes in, from this Mod your player perspective or so-called camera will be corrected, and you will feel as if the camera is through a real physical body. This makes the game a whole lot of fun to play.
Who doesn’t want giant and mighty robots? Everyone wants them nowadays in-game, that is why people love to play Titanfall.

The Robot also has a mighty and intense machine gun with it; you can use it to simply kill anyone in your way without you having to take any damage to your self. The titan will take all the damage for you.
