How To Install Nimbus 2000 Mod In Hogwarts Legacy

Are you a fan of Harry Potter? Do you dream of soaring through the air on a Nimbus 2000 broomstick, just like Harry did in the first movie? Well, you're in luck! This guide will show you how to get the Nimbus 2000 broomstick mod in Hogwarts Legacy. Now, I know what you're thinking - there are plenty of broomsticks available in the game, so what makes the Nimbus 2000 so special?

Simply put, it's the fastest and most maneuverable broomstick. I mean, heck. Harry used it to catch the Golden Stitch! While it's not officially available in Hogwarts Legacy, we've got a workaround that allows you to add the Nimbus 2000 to your collection of broomsticks. And let me tell you, once you're flying on the Nimbus 2000, you'll never want to return to any other broomstick in the game.

REMINDER - Hogwarts Legacy was due to launch on PS4 and Xbox One on April 4, but now won't release until 5 May 2023.

How To Install Nimbus 2000 Mod In Hogwarts Legacy

It's important to note that the Nimbus 2000 broom mod in Hogwarts Legacy doesn't actually add the broomstick to the game as a separate entity. Instead, it replaces the 3D model for the Yew Weaver Broom in Hogwarts Legacy. So, while you won't see the Nimbus 2000 listed in your broomstick collection, you'll notice the visual difference when you take to the skies.

If you're interested in trying out this mod, it can be downloaded on the Nexusmods website. And the best part is that installing it is so easy: go to the mod page, download, and unzip the folder. Then, copy the files into the Hogwarts Legacy game folder. Specifically, you must unpack the files to the following directory: \Steam\steamapps\common\Hogwarts Legacy. You can access the local files by clicking the gear icon of the game's Steam page, clicking "Manage," and then "Browse Local Files."

How To Uninstall Nimbus 2000 Mod In Hogwarts Legacy

As a reminder, players can uninstall the Nimbus 2000 mod in Hogwarts Legacy anytime. If you no longer want to use the Nimbus 2000 3D model instead of the Yew Weaver Broom, access the game files again and remove the following files: z_nimbus2000_P.pak, z_nimbus2000_P.ucas, z_nimbus2000_P.utoc from the ~mods folder (\Steam\steamapps\common\Hogwarts Legacy\Phoenix\Content\Paks~mods).

By removing these files, the game will revert to its original 3D model for the Yew Weaver Broom, and the Nimbus 2000 will no longer be present in your game.
