The Witcher 3 Mod Makes Geralt’s Medallion React To Monsters In-Game

A Witcher 3 modder has created an "Active Medallion" mod that makes Geralt's Witcher medallion rumble and glow when he runs into monsters and magic.

The Witcher 3 is often regarded as one of the most detailed and deep games of the last few console generations, and it's a viewpoint that's hard to argue against. When it comes to detail, there's no better example than everyone's favourite grumbly Witcher, Geralt, who has clearly had lots of time put into making him as realistic as possible. Just look at how his hair can grow!

Want Geralt to be even more detailed? Well, thanks to the Active Medallion mod on Nexus Mods from plasticmetal, you can now do just that. One of the most iconic elements of a Witcher is their medallion, which canonically shakes and glows when around magic. Although it did just that in the first and second games, it had a much less prominent role in The Wild Hunt and only did so in some cutscenes.

The mod from plasticmetal fixes that, making the medallion vibrate and glow when near Monsters, Places of Power, sorceresses, and Fyke Isle lamp clues. It'll also deactivate when monsters are defeated, or if Geralt is in a dimeritium cloud bomb (which canonically deactivates magic). Not only that, but Geralt will also occasionally comment on the medallion shaking.

Regarding the mod, plasticmetal said, "The medallion will emit a small sonar pulse and the eyes will light up when near a magical source, and the eyes will revert to the vanilla medallion when no magic is detected. The medallion appearance change can be blocked in the mod settings (mostly for book medallion users). Geralt may also comment that he senses medallion activity in some way. Medallion activation can also trigger controller vibration, screen shake, and sound effects".

To access the mod, you'll also need to download the "The Wolf Medallion" mod, which allows the medallion to have red glowing eyes in the first place. The Active Medallion mod will also add the "Witcher Hearing" mod which, when activated, will activate Witcher sense when near beats.
