Project Zomboid in its current state, is arguably one of the most impressive survival zombie experiences out there. However, an already great game can always be improved with a few mods here and there. 

Such is the case with Project Zomboid, and here you will find a few mods that we recommend playing around with in your game. Our mods list will touch upon the quality of life improvements to new items and more. 

Disclaimer – Read Before Installing Mods!

Before installing any of the mods we have listed, make sure to read mod descriptions and upload and last updated dates. The reason is that the recent update broke some mods for the game.

Because of that, it’s best to check mods to save a lot of mod troubleshooting down the line.  That said, enjoy the mod list below, and if you have any mod recommendations feel free to a comment!

Jump Through Windows

A simple mod that does as the name suggests, which is you can now jump through windows. To jump through a window, all you have to do is run directly at it, and you will fly through it. But, make sure the window is open, or you will get a lot of glass in places you didn’t even know you had.
