Beat Saber mods allow players to slice their colorful boxes in some extra special ways, turning their Sabers into a variety of other cool weapons and items. Here are the 12 best Beat Saber Mods to download in 2023.
When the game first came out, most Beat Saber’s mods used to all be focused on music and adding custom tracks to the game. However, since then, the game has allowed players to do this legitimately, making most musical Beat Saber mods redundant in 2023.
Luckily though, the Beat Saber mod community has switched their attention to the Beat Sabers themselves, turning the lightsaber-inspired weapons into a range of other block-smashing implements. Here are 12 of our favorite Beat Saber mods you can download and try.
To install mods in Beat Saber we’d recommend downloading a quality Mod Assistant application like this one.
- Once downloaded you’ll be able to launch the ModAssistant.exe file which will automatically connect to your Beat Saber game. If it doesn’t, then follow the steps to locate it manually.
- After you’ve accepted the terms and conditions, click the Mods button to get started.
- Now run Beat Saber normally to ensure that the application has connected to the game. You’ll need to do this at least once before you can use mods.
- Now go back to the ‘Mods’ menu. You’ll notice each of the mods is listed and selectable. All you need to do now is to tick the box of the ones you like and click ‘install’.
Now enjoy Beat Saber with all it’s weird and wonderful mods!
Currently, only the PC version of Beat Saber has access to mods. While the game is available on consoles, these versions are not compatible with any mods.
We think mods are unlikely to ever come to console, except in rare cases like Skyrim. However, with custom tracks, mods may not be required on console versions of Beat Saber anyway.
Here are some of the best Beat Saber mods you can install and try:
Halo Energy Swords
If kitchen knives aren’t your thing, then how about slashing some beats with a Covenant energy sword from the Halo series? Imagine you’re Master Chief and The Arbiter on their downtime.

The Lance of Longinus is not to be confused with its Biblical counterpart, but this version is straight out of Evangelion. It’s as effective at slashing blocks as it is at its enemies!
Overwatch Genji’s Dragonblade
Overwatch fans are also catered for by Beat Saber mods. You can now turn your sabers into the iconic Dragonblade. Chopping blocks with a full-length katana really changes the gameplay – it’s also incredibly satisfying.
The Pappenheimer Rapier
This mod is one for history buffs and turns your Beat Saber into a real-life weapon instead of something from another games franchise. The Pappenheimer Rapier was a real sword wielded by Count Pappenheimer of German in the Thirty Years War. It now lives on in Beat Saber.
