The Witcher 2, an action role-playing game, earned its place as an icon after CD Projekt RED released it in 2011 for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt followed in 2015.
The Witcher 2, notorious for its violence and nudity, is beloved by many gamers for its immersive storyline and excellent character development.
Geralt of Rivia, the main character, is a professional monster slayer who sometimes finds it difficult to believe that people can be more wicked than the beasts he hunts.
Geralt has several allies, including Triss Merigold, Vernon Roche, and Dandelion. Together, they help him navigate an often dark and dangerous world.
The Witcher Netflix series, based on the game, does an excellent job of depicting the characters and their world.
The show has been lauded for features such as its exceptional acting, gorgeous visuals, and intricate plot. It’s definitely not one for the kiddies, though – this is some hardcore entertainment!

Our Top Witcher 2 Mods
Welcome to our list of the best mods for The Witcher 2! This game is already great, but these mods will help you unlock its full potential.
What could be easier than godmode?
With this mod, you can become an all-powerful being that can’t be hurt by anything in the world of The Witcher 2.
No more dying to random monsters or getting one-shot by a boss! Just you and your godlike powers, tearing through the world like a deity.
Of course, some might say that this takes away from the challenge of the game, and they’re right. But for those who just want to enjoy the story and world without worrying about death, godmode is the perfect cheat.
19. Zero Weight
One of the many obstacles players face is the weight limit on inventory items. Carrying around too much loot can quickly lead to exhaustion and make fast travel rough.
However, Zero Weight offers a solution to this problem. As the name implies, it reduces the carry weight of all in-game items to zero.
This means that players can now haul around as much loot as they want without slowing down or running out of stamina.
No more worrying about inventory weight; just grab whatever you want and go! While this does make the game easier, many players find managing inventory more of a chore than an enjoyable part of playing.
18. Extra Talent Points per Level
It can be tough to max out all your skills without resorting to cheats or mods. The game doesn’t give us enough points to elevate Geralt to the heights he deserves.
Extra Talents Per Level is a mod that lets players gather strength by increasing the number of talent points they receive per level.
With this mod installed, you’ll be able to max out all your skills by the time you reach level 35.
So if you’re looking for a way to make The Witcher 2 more thrilling or if you just want to build your character in a different way, be sure to check it out.
17. Fix Dice Poker and Arm Wrestling
The Dice Poker and Arm Wrestling minigames are pretty tedious. If you’re looking for a mod that will let you quickly and easily win those minigames, look no further!
This mod provides a small, simple change that makes it impossible to lose in these two games. It also won’t interfere with any other gameplay mechanics.
Though “always win” is not an accurate statement, there are still some rare situations where a draw could occur.
As much as we might hate to admit it, winning isn’t everything–but it sure is more fun than losing.
16. AI Upscale Textures
The Witcher 2 is a great game, but it’s starting to look a bit dated. The textures, in particular, could use a boost. Fortunately, there’s a mod for that.
AI Upscale Textures uses AI to enhance the appearance of in-game textures, giving them a much-needed graphics overhaul.
The results are impressive, to say the least. Not only does the mod make the game look better, but it also gives it a distinct style that lets it stand up to newer titles.
This mod makes The Witcher 2 look better than ever, and it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for a way to improve the game’s visuals.
15. Dark Weapons Without Dark Effects
Some players feel that the smoky effect around dark weapons is a little bit of an annoyance, despite how cool it may look. Thankfully, the Witcher 2 modding community has a solution.
The Dark Weapons Without Dark Effects mod does exactly what it sounds like it does – it disables the dark smoke and sound effects from dark weapons while keeping everything else the same.
Without immersion-breaking elements, this leaves the game feeling unique and stylistically distinct.
If you’re looking for a Witcher 2 experience that is more immersive and less high-fantasy, be sure to check out this mod.
14. Dynamic Hud
Quality-of-life improvements can make all the difference to the gaming experience. That’s why we were so excited to discover the Dynamic HUD mod for The Witcher 2.
This sleek, modern custom display adds a ton of quality-of-life improvements that really help to streamline the gameplay.
For example, the health bars are now neatly displayed, making it easy to keep track of your progress.
In addition, quest info is situated in a much better spot by the mini-map, making it much easier to manage side-quest objectives on your adventure.
Overall, this mod is a huge improvement over the vanilla game, and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a more user-friendly HUD.
13. TW1 Final Saves
For gamers who want to continue the story from The Witcher, save files can be imported into the sequel. This ensures that the story picks up where the players left off.
This pack of save files comes with several versions containing different branching story choices to continue from in The Witcher 2.
The choices you make in the first game will affect the world of the second, so it’s crucial to be intentional about your decision-making.
Fortunately, the process is relatively simple.
12. All Items Added to Innkeeper
Innkeeper shops are already pretty convenient places. You can buy food and drinks, rent a room for the night, and even get your horse stabled.
But what if you could buy anything and everything you need in one place?
That’s the premise of All Items Added To Innkeeper. As the name suggests, this mod adds every single item in the game to innkeeper shops. That includes armor, quest items, consumables, and more.
So whether you’re looking for a new sword or some dragon blood, you can find it all at your local inn. And best of all, you won’t have to leave the comfort of your tavern stool to get it.
11. Market Price Mod
For monster slayers who like to get the most bang for their coin, the Market Price mod is about to be your new favorite.
This mod restores the original Witcher game’s 5:1 ratio between purchase and sale prices.
The sequel has a 24:1 ratio; we think that’s unfair. Balance is important in any game, and this mod helps to restore balance to The Witcher 2.
Earning your coin in-game is already difficult enough without having to worry about harsh exchange rates.
10. Better Environment Textures
One of the things that makes this classic game so great is its style. The world is incredibly detailed and believable, and the characters are just as stunning. But what if there was a way to make the game even more realistic?
Well, with the Better Environmental Texture pack, there is!
This pack increases the graphical detail of the world, making it even more appealing and realistic. The bricks look more realistic, and the overall graphical appeal is increased.
9. Junk Dismantling
Ever been lootin’ through some bandit camp and thought to yourself, man, I really wish I could get rid of all this iron and just have the raw materials? No? Just us?
Well, for those of you who have ever wanted to get efficient with your looting, there’s a mod for The Witcher 2 called Junk Dismantling.
It lets players talk to any crafting merchant to break down their junk into raw materials.
Junk includes items like iron, silver, and other materials. If you ever want to lighten your load, be sure to use this mod.
8. Return of the White Wolf – Hair Texture
For lovers of the Witcher series, you may recall that Geralt of Rivia’s hair turned white after he underwent the Trial of the Grasses–the last test to become a witcher.
However, in The Witcher 2, his hair is inexplicably grey and dull. This mod changes his hair color back to white, giving him a more striking and distinctive look that is true to the character’s lore. He’s known as THE WHITE WOLF, after all!
Not only does this mod make Geralt look more like himself, but it also makes him stand out more in the game’s visually-stunning world.
7. Reduced Medallion Cooldown
The Reduced Medallion Cooldown mod makes it easy to be ever aware of your in-game surroundings.
This mod reduces the cooldown of the medallion from 10 seconds to 1 second, making it easy to use the medallion’s power to see through walls and find hidden enemies by their magical aura.
With this mod, you’ll have the freedom to explore the world of The Witcher 2 without worrying about getting lost or being ambushed by unseen enemies.
6. Experienced Geralt
If you’re the type of person who likes to start a game with all the bells and whistles, then you’ll want to check out the Experience Geralt mod.
This mod unlocks all of Geralt’s skill trees from the beginning of the game, meaning you won’t have to waste any time grinding away to unlock them.
Players can choose to have specific trees unlocked but not others.
Instead, you can focus on enjoying the game and mastering its many mechanics. It’s a great way to get the most out of the game.
5. 5,000 Orens Dice Poker
For anyone who’s ever wanted to roll in coin while playing The Witcher 2, you can make that dream a reality.
5,000 Orens Dice Poker raises the potential wager to a whopping 5,000 orens, making the minigame a solid moneymaker. So go ahead and start rolling in it – with this mod, you’ll be able to amass a small fortune in no time.
Just beware of angry opponents who may try to take their coin back by less-than-fair means.
After all, when there’s that much cash on the line, anything can happen. (Not really.)
4. Geralt’s Improved Quality of Life
No two gamers are the same, and that’s why there’s such a diverse array of mods available for download.
With so many different mods available, it can be hard to know which ones are worth your time.
Luckily, dedicated modders have done the research for you and compiled a combo pack of the best Witcher 2 mods that improve the quality of life and balance in the game.
From minor tweaks to major overhauls, these mods will definitely improve your experience as the White Wolf of Rivia.
Our favorite changes include the nighttime combat tweaks and the removal of intro videos.
3. Enhanced Mod Compilation
We couldn’t just pick one mod pack, so here’s another favorite! Even though both of these provide different in-game advantages, they don’t overlap too much.
This pack contains several bug fixes as well as balance changes.
If you’re like us, you loved The Witcher 2 but found yourself getting annoyed with some of its quirks.
Whether it was the wonky combat balance or the occasional graphic glitch, there were always a few irksome issues that marred an otherwise perfect game.
2. CEO – Complete Equipment Overhaul
CEO completely alters the stats of every piece of combat equipment in the game; after you finish the first act, the difficulty curve starts getting easier, but this evens that out.
By doing this, the player has a more consistent experience with difficulty level during combat from start to finish. If you’re looking for a new mod that will prolong your gaming experience, this is the one for you.
Compared to all the other items on our list, this should already be included in the base game.
1. Full Combat Rebalance
Full Combat Rebalance is a groundbreaking mod for The Witcher 2 that changes the way every detail of combat works in the game.
It changes the way combat works, making Geralt more responsive and mobile. It also fixes a ton of bugs, making the game even more enjoyable.
Paired with CEO, our number two pick, the Witcher 2 becomes near-perfection when it comes to the gaming experience.
If you’re looking for a way to extend the life of your playthrough, then Full Combat Rebalance is the way to go.
