Lethal Company Skinwalker Mod: How To Get The Terrifying Mod

Some monsters in Lethal Company are scary to encounter as it is, but you can make them even more terrifying. Here is how to get the Skinwalker mod


Lethal Company is a popular co-op survival indie horror game that was published on October 24, 2023, by the developer, Zeekeerss and it is currently in early access. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic and retrofuturistic dystopian world. An anonymous corporate organization named the “Company” hires players on a contract to explore abandoned and industrialized moons to collect scraps for sale and meet a profit quota every 3 days. During these exploration adventures on the moons, players have to face many dangerous creatures, which range from entirely harmless, almost comical creatures to instant one-hit killers.

These creatures are already scary enough as it is, creating near heart attack-inducing moments when they jump at you. However, the modders of the game took it upon themselves to add to the creepiness of the game by creating the “Skinwalker” mod. This mod makes monsters, all of them if you want, mimic the voice of you and your friends. Hence, here is how to get the terrifying Skinwalker mod in Lethal Company.

The Skinwalker mod is a mimicry mod in Lethal Company, which might make you wonder what exactly it does. Well, the mod allows monsters in the game to record the voices of all employees in the facility and play them at random times to lure their prey in. Terrifying, isn’t it? However, it does not have any AI integrated into it and works without it.

It records the voices of employees automatically and plays them back from the monsters at random times, making players wonder whether it is truly their friend or a sneaky Bracken targeting them. The mod is perfect for making the gameplay more creepy, as it can create major confusion between employees who have split up in order to collect scraps for the required quota.

The mod was created by user RugbugRedfern on the Thunderstore site. The mod is fully customizable via the r2modman mod manager or manually through the .cfg file in the game’s files. The customization allows players to choose which monsters they want to allow to mimic their voices. You can enable and disable the monsters who can record your voices and play them back randomly. This creates a lot of creepy coincidences because you and your friend can be together, exploring an area and scanning for scraps but the monsters might choose to mimic their voice at that exact moment to creep you out, making it a very eerie thing to encounter.

How to get the Skinwalker Mod

Unfortunately, the Skinwalker mod is not a single mod so you have to go through a simple process with a few additional steps included to install the mod into the game. To install the mod, you need to install 2 different mods including the main mimicry mod. However, it is truly worth it because who doesn’t want the creatures to haunt them in their dreams as well, right? Hence, here is the full process you need to follow to install the Skinwalker mod in Lethal Company:

Installing BepinExPack 

Here is how to install the BepinExPack file, which is a framework file that will help players use the mod properly: 

  • Step 1: Go to the BepinExPack page and click on the “Manual Download” option.

  • Step 2: Complete the download and then extract all the contents of the .rar or .zip file into the Lethal Company folder in Steam on your C Drive. You can easily do so by using the following location: 
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Lethal Company 

Once you’re done installing the BepinExPack file, you need to install the second file, the mod file which will allow players to have the sound-mimicking feature in the game, as long as they have the proper version of the mod installed.

Installing Skinwalker Mod

Here is how to install the Skinwalker mod file:

  • Step 1: Go to the Skinwalker mod page and click on the “Manual Download” option.

  • Step 2: Complete the download and then extract all the contents of the .rar or .zip file into the Lethal Company folder in Steam on your C Drive. You can easily do so by using the following location: 
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Lethal Company

  • Step 3: When or if a dialog box pops up and your system prompt asks you to replace certain files in the folder, agree to all of them.

With that last step, you’re done installing the Skinwalker mod into your game! Fairly easy to do despite having additional steps, isn’t it? Now, you no longer have to listen to the same monotonous SFX sounds when encountering the various creatures in the game because they will be mimicking you and your friends now.

Though, one thing to note is that, this mod is a new mod so it is quite normal for players to experience bugs in the game while using the mod.  Also, make sure to get the latest updated version of the mod, which at version 2.0.1 at present, to ensure that it works properly. The developers are working and making updates to the mod every day, so appreciate the effort!

As for using the mod, there are no extra steps required to get it working except, of course, restarting the game’s client and making sure that your game is working with the mod in it. You want to synchronize the mod with your friends, so make sure to have them install the mod as well so that all of you can enjoy the encounters with them altogether. Otherwise, if they don’t install the mod they won’t be able to hear the mimicry or have their voice mimicked, but it will not affect your or their gameplay at all. 

This is because the mod does not clash with anything else, thanks to the developers opting out of the LC_API dependency to ensure that there are no conflicts in gameplay. However, the developers specifically mentioned that the game clashes with the Lethal Progression mod so keep that in mind when creating your modpack.

Conclusion

Needless to say, once you’re done reading through this article, you will have no problems with having the monsters in the game haunting your dreams, with the added mimicry of your friends' voices. Not only is it easy to install the Skinwalker mod into the game, but it also enhances the gameplay by letting players get even more terrified and creeped out. We are sure that walking through the many halls of the facilities in the game has never felt so creepy, especially when you hear someone call out for help and you don’t know if it’s them or a sneaky Thumper.
