Modder LeGioN675 releases a mod for Fallout 4 that adds one of gaming’s most iconic weapon, the BFG from the Doom franchise, to post-apocalyptic Boston.

Over a month since it released, Fallout 4 remains one of the most popular games in the industry, thanks to players continuously discovering new content. This has included hidden underwater treasures, Easter Eggs, and other secrets, but for PC gamers, Fallout 4‘s popularity has also been maintained thanks to a steady stream of mods from the community. These mods have added a number of new features to the game, with one such mod adding one of gaming’s most iconic weapons to the world of Fallout 4.

The weapon in question is the BFG from the Doom franchise. Often praised as one of the best weapons in all of gaming, the BFG 9000 mod for Fallout 4 allows players to hit enemies with a flurry of powerful plasma blasts, giving them a serious edge over the many enemies roaming post-apocalyptic Boston. Those that are interested in downloading the Doom BFG mod for Fallout 4, created by LeGioN675, should check out NexusMods.

So far, Fallout 4 has received tremendous support from the modding community, as was expected when the highly anticipated game finally released. The Doom BFG mod is one of the neater mods available, as it combines two franchises that currently fall under the Bethesda umbrella, and allows gamers to utilize one of the most memorable weapons in gaming history.

Hopefully console gamers will also have a chance to use Doom‘s BFG in Fallout 4. We know that Fallout 4 mod support for consoles is in our future, but Bethesda has yet to peg a release window for it. We also don’t know which mods will actually be downloadable on consoles, and which ones will remain exclusive to PC users. Over a month removed since the release of Fallout 4 and with 2015 coming to a close, it seems likely that we will hear more about mod support on consoles for the game sooner rather than later.

Moving forward, expect even more mods to be created for Fallout 4. The game’s popularity shows no signs of slowing down any time soon, and will likely receive significant mod support well through 2016. There will probably be a wide variety of mods released, but it will be especially interesting to see what other weapon mods the community manages to add to Fallout 4. With mods based on Doom‘s BFG and a lightsaber from Star Wars, modders will have to come up with something truly unique to get noticed at this point.

Fallout 4 is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. At the time of this writing, the BFG mod is only accessible through the PC version of the game.
