- Indomitable Hitstreaks
- Uruk Intel Uncovered

Simple Realistic Reshade
Shadow of War already comes with stunning graphics and immersive visuals, but if you want to go one step further, you should probably consider installing the Simple Realistic Reshade mod.
This is a simple yet very game-changing Reshade preset and the shaders pack for Middle-earth Shadow of War can be can easily be installed easily with the ReShade program. The preset is meant to deliver you a simple yet realistic simulation with a minor performance impact. It also comes with a 3D stereoscopic mode on top for better rendering.
Multi-Skill Equip does exactly what it says, It allows multiple skills to be employed simultaneously, opening the door for more fun and exciting in-game combinations to be used. However, skills cannot be removed whilst the mod is running, therefore it’ll need to be switched on and off with an assigned hotkey.
The hotkey ( by default Numpad 1) can be modified in the attached .ini file, all existing keycodes are included as well. Please note that this mod requires the Shadow of War DLL Loader to function properly.
Item Challenge Remover
Here is a great Shadow of War quality of life mod that you’ll definitely enjoy, Item Challenge Remover does exactly what its name suggests. It eliminates item challenges from your game, by basically auto-completing them and enabling you to upgrade your equipment at only the Mirian amount that it would cost, saving you a lot of time, headaches, and an agonizing grind.
While the mod works fine on Legendary gear, it is highly recommended not to make any upgrades unless you have reached the required level and need very high damage for your existing level.
No Skill Level Requirements
Have you ever wished you could choose any skill from the grid that you want, without having to go through the tedious level requirements? Well, now you can! Thanks to this gameplay mod, you’ll get to equip your favorite build as early as possible, or if you wish, replay the game minus all the grind and hustle that comes with the level requirements.
No Skill Level Requirements mod will let you bypass the level requirement that is placed in order to pick skills. However, it does not remove those that are locked for quests, as that would probably break the game and strip it of any incentive.
Zephyr Natural Visual Overhaul
Zephyr Natural Visual Overhaul is yet another Shadow of War Reshade mod but with a twist. This is a Reshade that imposes a more natural and realistic visual overhaul across the entire game, it is meant to give you the most vivid and virtual experience while playing the game.
As we all know, Middle Earth: Shadow of War does contain a tone of vibrant and saturated reddish colors, because, let’s face it, you can’t have a game that looks this beautiful and visually appealing without expecting a few minor mishaps along the way.
Indomitable Hit streaks
Hit streaks not only enable you to execute dope finishing moves with each successive 8/5 combo but also increases your damage and attack speed while in melee form, giving you the highest possible strength from the hit streak at its 100 max stacks.
Indomitable Hit Streaks is a mod that will help you get the maximum hit streak in Shadow of War, it does that by stopping the counter from resetting if and when hit by enemies. It’s a pretty straight-to-the-point mod, install it and dominate your foes.
Uruk Intel Uncovered
When it comes to Shadow of War, information is a key factor in winning. If you are a veteran of the game, then you certainly remember the days when you could grab a random Uruk and have the option to get intel from them.
Gone are the days when you had to sacrifice your own captains just to discover the basic powers of the Uruks and see what they are made of. Uruk Intel Uncovered mod will ensure that they emerge with their name, appearance and strengths revealed, and with their weaknesses exposed as well.
If you, are like me, can’t play Shadow of War comfortably because of the narrow camera, then this FOV Adjuster mod is a must-have for you.
It’s a mod that allows you to make adjustments and tweaks to the minimum and maximum field of view. You can do that either via the supplied .ini file or two default hotkeys (Numpad 4 and Numpad 6) assigned to decrease or increase the maximum field of view.
This wraps up our list of the best Shadow of War mods. We hope you’ll have as good a time going through them and implementing them in your next playthrough as we did while picking them.
