Best Mods for Minecraft Bedrock Edition

There are various mods available ranging from quality of life changes to massive content additions. Let us examine some of the best mods for Minecraft Bedrock Edition.

Keep in mind that bedrock edition was previously known as pocket edition (PE) and many mods will be labeled as pocket edition mods.

Smelter’s Forge

Some of the forge additions in Smelter’s Forge.

Smelter’s Forge is a game changer for Minecraft. It focuses on upgrading the forge and giving it much more depth than vanilla Minecraft.

However, the mod doesn’t end there. There are over 50 new items from forge utilities to accessories that will take your blacksmithing station to the next level.

Handheld Torches

Handheld Torches is a quality of life mod that allows players to hold torches in their hands. These emit light as if placed.

This means that players only need to craft 1 torch before going mining, instead of having to make multiple stacks and spam them everywhere.

It just makes mining significantly easier and allows players to focus on mining per se, instead of constantly worrying about lighting up the place.

Zalcyan’s Quest

One of the new biomes in Zalcyan’s Quest.

Zalcyan’s Quest makes Minecraft a completely new game. It adds 8 new unique biomes, each with its buildings, items, recipes, and enemies.

The creativity and imagination of Zalcyan’s Quest creator are truly mindblowing and you’ll be looking in awe at all the new additions.

If you want something different and overhauled from the default vanilla Minecraft, Zalcyan’s quest is your best bet.

Nether Plus

If you enjoy the nether biome, Nether Plus is an amazing mod to try. It adds over 20 new mobs to the nether biome, as well as various new consumables, items, and drops.

There are monsters like the Infernal Golem, which has 70(!) health and will make the nether far more dangerous than it already was.

If you’re looking for a challenge and to put your survival skills to the test in the Nether, Nether Plus is a great mod.

Expansive Biomes

Expansive Biomes adds fiery mountaintops amongst other biomes.

In case you prefer exploring new biomes, Expansive Biomes is your best choice. With over 20 new biomes included, you’ll always have something to explore.

And of course, each biome comes with its distinct mobs (passive and aggressive), items, and recipes.

Exploring each biome will be a unique experience, especially since each of them is filled to the brim with content.


To sum up, these are some of the best mods for Minecraft Bedrock Edition. From simple, quality-of-life mods, to some more advanced, game-changing additions, there’s something for everyone on this list.
