Every good game in the Grand Theft Auto franchise is also known for bringing super fun mods. In the case of GTA IV it is no different! The game's community is very creative and has created dozens of special modifications for Niko, Liberty City, vehicles and so many other things in the gameplay.
We have separated in this article the best of the best so that you can customize your GTA IV the way you want!
1. Captain America
Who never wanted to be Captain America? If you're a fan of Steve Rogers, this is your chance to hold the First Avenger's shield and fight crime (or not) in Liberty City. The mod is super well done, with all the details of the great leader of the Avengers' uniform.
The Dark Knight is another good choice for anyone who is tired of playing with Niko. It's much cooler to walk around the city at night controlling Batman. Unfortunately, you don't have access to the Batmobile or the bat's super accessories, but you can still smack your enemies in style.
For those who want to run and evade the police, Sonic seems to be one of the best choices! The Sega mascot is an ideal mod for those who like this character and for those who want to make things less serious in their GTA IV. This modification, as you can see in the image, also brings Taylor, as well as other classic figures from the game.
4 Lionel Messi
How about dodging gangs and rivals with Lionel Messi? One of the most bizarre and at the same time funniest mods in GTA IV. Of course Niko doesn't gain the Argentine's ball skills, but it's very interesting to cross the streets, steal cars and shoot around controlling the best player in the world.
Link's new adventure is now in Liberty City. The protagonist of Zelda got tired of the forests and green meadows of Nintendo games and decided to become a gangster. The mode is awesome and brings a very faithful Link to the well-known games of the franchise of which he is a part. Including its giant head.
Netflix Daredevil is back! After Hell's Kitchen, Liberty City is now the target of his wrath. The coolest thing about this mod pack is that other characters from the Marvel series are available. Such as Elektra, Punisher and the Kingpin.
7. Kratos (God of War II)
The great god of war from God of War has arrived in GTA IV and promises to have no mercy on enemies. The mod is based on Kratos from the beginning of God of War II, bringing his armor all XPTO. It's a shame you can't use the blades on your back, which is certainly unnecessary. Just use a bazooka!
Nobody denies that Leon is the best agent in The Resident Evil. And it has everything to do with GTA IV! Even without zombies, playing with him can be quite fun, remembering the good times of TRE 2 and even 4.
9. Jason Vorhees
Jason Vorhees is immortal in his movies, but not in GTA IV, so don't even try to stab rival gangs, you'll get hurt. But who knows how to run after a few pedestrians from time to time?
10. Snake (Metal Gear 3)
The agent goes famous in the gamer world is a very cool mod for GTA IV. Despite Snake's more stealth style, it can be quite fun to see him in chases or frantic escapes, mounted on a motorcycle.
11. Superman mode
This mod does not change Niko's appearance, but rather makes him "half" Superman. He can fly at high speeds, even leaving a trail of fire behind him. He doesn't have the laser beam or an alien force, but being able to fly whenever and wherever he wants is cause for celebration!
12. Hulk Mode
"Hulk Mode" is one of the coolest mods on the list. Not only will you have the appearance of the emerald giant, you will also have its powers. Note in the image that there is even a level of anger. The angrier your Hulk gets, the stronger and more destructive he will become. Perfect to play on bad days...
13. Ghost Rider Mode
Just like the mod above, this one changes appearance and adds powers. Ghost Rider has his magic motorcycle, which even passes over water. In addition, you will have the fire powers of this hero, being able to terrorize your enemies without the use of weapons in the game.
14. Zero gravity
Only pedestrians and some objects are floating around Liberty City, but that makes your missions at least more interesting. Niko still has his feet firmly on the ground, which can make it difficult to have to kill one or another rival. But if you use the Superman mod together, things can get even cooler.
15. Driving in 1st person
There are many mods that put Niko in 1st person. This is one of the few that allows you to change the camera whenever you want. The only detail is that this only works even when driving or piloting a vehicle.
16. Topol M Russo
The Russian Topol M is one of the angriest missile launchers in the world. A weapon you're sure to be happy to have for some of GTA IV's most explosive missions. Even though that missile in the image above is just decorative and can't even be launched.
17. Goodyear Balloon
Who ever wanted to know what it's like to fly a balloon like the one in the image, now has that opportunity. The experience will be strange at first, but it can be quite fun if you use the 1st person driving mod. Try traveling through the nights of Liberty City and, who knows, even throw the balloon at an enemy.
18. Avengers Quinjet
You can pilot the Avengers Quinjet controlling Captain America. Or Batman, who knows? The fact is that this beauty gives another face to the planes in the game, making the game much more like a fan of the Marvel movies or comics.
How to install the mods?
Installing the mods is simple. All you have to do is enter the folder where the game files are. More specifically, enter the folder that contains the "GTAV.exe" file. Now it's time to paste the files of the modifications you want to have in your gameplay.
But be careful! Follow the guidelines for each mod before doing this. There are cases where you need to replace a particular folder or file. In others, it is necessary to use an application for the installation to complete.
If you want to play online, remove the mods from the game folder. Rockstar does not support these modifications in multiplayer matches, although it is not "against" their presence in single player. If you don't want to be banned from the game, avoid going against the company's recommendations.
Finally, it is common for mods to have issues and corrupt their save files. So it's good to make some kind of backup of them so you don't lose your progress.
