10 Best Mods on Steam Workshop

Teardown is a physics sandbox filled with maps to destroy and the tools to destroy them. As you play through the campaign, you’ll unlock new locations to clear, new gear to wreak havoc with, and gain a better understanding of what’s possible.

Well, forget all that progressive progression nonsense for a moment, because Teardown has a Steam Workshop – here you’ll find plenty of mods that can create absolutely chaotic and entertaining experiences. Luckily, Steam Workshop mods are just a click away, so find them and have fun.

ten Better slow motion

Dismantling of the building halfway through the explosion

This first mod is more of an adjustment than something that significantly changes the game, but is nonetheless necessary. Teardown comes with some built-in mods, including a slow motion feature that you can turn on. However, you have to hold the button down, which is pretty limited when you want to watch this destruction in all its slowed-down glory.

Better Slow Motion makes functionality first and foremost a seesaw, meaning you can run around and smash things to your heart’s content while the slowest time consists. Plus, it lets you adjust how fast you want time to flow with your mouse scroll wheel. Needless to say, it makes the destruction much more cinematic and the times when quick reactions are needed much easier.


9 Dual Miniguns


It’s like a minigun, but two of them. There’s not much justification needed here – it’s just for when you want to wreak havoc with a minigun, but one just isn’t enough. Watching the onslaught of bullets rip through the very fabric of everything never gets old, and it’s a surefire way to bring down anything in front of you.

If that wasn’t enough, they also fire bullets at such speed that you will fly in the opposite direction while firing. Sure, there might already be a jetpack mod built into the game, but where’s the fun in that. Soar through the sky with two big cannons as the ground splits below you.

8 Dynamic AT-AT map

Disassembly AT-AT Explosion Fall

Everyone knows the Giant Walkers from Star Wars – they can be easily recognized in pop culture, and fans will remember watching the Hoth Rebels knock them to the ground, in a satisfying collapse and crash. So of course now you can do just that in this game while breaking things.

While we don’t quite have fast ships equipped with ropes to attach and trigger AT-ATs, you can do just about anything else. Climb inside, load them with explosives, fire a rocket launcher at their bodies, cut off their legs – in fact, is anyone else starting to feel bad about it? Either way, having a playground to play with these iconic behemoths is incredibly fun.

seven Railgun


Teardown provides you with plenty of guns that can shoot through things, that’s nothing new – but what if the gun really pulled through things. The railgun will charge for a few seconds, then fire a laser that will immediately pierce anything in front of you, and anything in front of that, and no matter how many holes, is the dot.

It’s just a fun tool to play with, more than anything. While not often the go-to for causing a lot of destruction, aiming for the right supports or through a range of structures will never fail to be satisfying. After all, most of those mods aren’t necessary – but you gotta admit you want that railgun. Why not?



Everyone loved trains. The majority of Teardown takes place on fun maps, but sometimes you want something a little simpler. With this mod, you gain access to a map that is nothing more than a train on a looping track around an empty field. You’ll start on the train and can drive it, but there’s even more fun to be had.

Get off the train and you will see that it goes through a tunnel, goes around some turns and crosses a wooden bridge while going around the circle. It would be a shame if something happened to it along the way… a lot can go wrong in a tunnel, the corners are easy to fall off and a wooden bridge is very slightly flammable. That said, you can just rig the train with explosives and grab the popcorn.

5 portal gun


Back to some pop culture references, what tool is more perfect for a sandbox game than the Portal Gun? This works quite well, placing a blue portal and an orange portal that you can walk through at your leisure. It doesn’t contribute to destruction as such, but opens up so many opportunities.

Plant your explosives and tools of destruction before using a portal for a quick getaway. After all, you don’t want to get caught up in the explosion you’re so carefully planning. When it comes to manipulating physics, all you need is your imagination – and the Portal Gun, of course.

4 Square Voxel


This map is perfect when you just want to load up a sandbox with mods and cause mayhem. With a decent amount of tall buildings, a multi-storey car park in the middle, and several towering cranes – well, you can only begin to imagine. Imagine and plan.

Yes, you can topple cranes and watch them tear buildings apart. Yes, you can light the fire in the halls and watch each floor ignite as it spreads. Yes, you can damage the supports of this vulnerable car park and watch it crumble. Needless to say, if you want to try new mods, this is a good place to start.

3 weather strike


Want to cause destruction? Call a meteor. With this mod, you can click on something you don’t want to watch anymore, and voila, it won’t stay there much longer. Wherever you look, you will soon be subjected to a meteor that has fallen from the sky, and it is a glorious sight.

On smaller targets, only a crater will remain. On larger targets, such as buildings, you’ll see the meteor work its way into them, and you’ll be able to see all the way through afterward. It’s certainly overkill, but sometimes it’s exactly what you need – you don’t just want to hit it with a hammer, you want it out of that realm.

2 BOEING 737


So all that destruction is fun and all, but why not take it to the next level – the next level being around 30,000ft. The Boeing 737 map is a unique mod, as it actually consists of multiple maps. The one we’re here to focus on, however, is the plane while it’s in midair – you can cause all the disruption, that’s for sure.

Open the emergency exits and watch as everything – including you – is sucked out of the plane in quick succession. There’s a lot of fun to be had trying out all your tools in such a confined space high in the air. Split the plane in half, insert something into the engines or detach the wings completely – or, if you have the meteor mod…

1 Lightsaber


Pop culture finds its way into just about everything, and what better tool to wreak havoc than the lightsaber? It’s a satisfying weapon to wield, listening to the buzz as it glows or watching it burn through any material like nothing ever happened.

This must replace the best mod for Teardown, simply because it’s perfect for any scenario. Whether you’re in a city, fighting AT-ATs, or on a plane, pull out the lightsaber and start swinging, all the while laughing maniacally. Teardown certainly brings out another side to all of us.
