Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 mods started popping up almost immediately after the game made its way to PC back in October 2016. Skip forward to the present and you might be surprised at just how vast the selection of mods has become. In fact, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find mods that you might be genuinely interested in because of just how many there are nowadays. But don’t worry. That’s where we come in.
We took a good look at the current Xenoverse 2 modding scene and have come up with a list that’s sure to include at least a few mods you will enjoy. We tried to make it versatile and add a little something for every type of player. If you like any of the mods found on this list, simply click the links we placed for your convenience to quickly download them. This isn’t a ranked list so the mods below are in no particular order. With that out of the way, let’s kick things off with our first entry.
New Transformations is one of the most popular Dragon Ball mods and it’s easy to see why. Just like its name indicates, the mod adds a bunch of new transformations for many of the game’s characters. Some of the transformations are exclusive to certain characters like Goku, Vegeta or Cell. Meanwhile, others like Super Saiyan God, Ultra Instinct or Divine Potential can be used by a variety of characters. The mod also adds a few new auras and some other neat stuff.
Goku (Ultra Instinct)
The aim of this mod is to provide the most accurate and lore-friendly version of Ultra Instinct Goku to date. The team behind the mod took the time to create a new custom aura along with new skills and movesets for the character. In addition, the modders also made some more subtle changes like replacing Goku’s running animation with a walking one. Changes like that were implemented in order to make the Xenoverse 2 version of the character more like his anime counterpart.
Animated Saiyan Tail Accessory
Monkey-like tails are generally associated with Saiyans but now you can add one to pretty much any character in Xenoverse 2. This mod adds animated Sayian tails to the accessory shop for both male and female characters. The mod also comes with a few other interesting accessories, including an SSJ4 Goku wig, Great Ape/Golden Great Ape hat, several scouters, and more. The mod works alongside New Transformations but you’ll need to install Animated Saiyan Tail Accessory first.
Goku & Vegeta (Transformable to SSJ and SSB)
One of the best parts of Dragon Ball is watching your favorite heroes transform into more powerful versions of themselves during the course of a battle. Unfortunately, the developers of Xenoverse 2 decided against implementing something like that in the game. But don’t worry because you can still have that feature by installing this mod. The mod only works with Goku and Vegeta but allows you to start the battle with the base version of the character and gradually take things one step further until you reach Super Saiyan Blue.
All Characters and Stages Unlocked From the Beginning
This is one of the most self-explanatory mods on our list. The mod does just what it says and allows you to skip some of the busywork by unlocking all characters and stages from the get-go. It’s worth noting that you would be missing out on some content by doing this. However, if you care more about the battles than the story you can jump straight into the action by installing this mod.
English Dub Fix
This mod is a must for anyone playing the English version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Although the developers did a good job with the English translation, they did leave in a bug that causes certain characters to sometime speak in Japanese. It’s a bit of a strange bug so install this mod if you want to get rid of it and play the game as it was originally intended.
This is a bit of a weird one but I’m sure many players will appreciate it. The mod essentially replaces Goku Black with Dende, making the little Namekian a lot stronger than usual. The new version of Dende gains all of Goku Black’s moves along with a few custom ones for good measure. In addition, the little guy also uses Goku’s lines, which don’t really fit his character but make for some hilarious moments.
Dragon Ball Super – Manga Pack
If you want your Xenoverse 2 characters to look and feel more like their Dragon Ball Super counterparts there’s a very easy way of doing that. Instead of grabbing a whole bunch of individual mods, you can simply download this mod pack instead. The pack includes a variety of mods inspired by the Dragon Ball Super manga and was put together by a team of veteran Xenoverse 2 modders.
Almost three years since its initial release, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 remains a very popular game. If you’ve been playing it since launch, however, you’ve probably been looking for ways to spice up your experience as of late. Well, the best way of doing that is with mods and we recommend starting off with the ones on this list. Once you’re done with those, you should definitely check out some other Xenoverse 2 mods because there are a lot of great ones out there just begging to be played.
