How to install WeMod on Steam Deck (2024) - DigiStatement (2024)

The Steam Deck has opened up a lot of possibilities when it comes to what you can do with a PC handheld. While we did have other PC handhelds before the Deck, none were able to gather a wider and more loyal following due to major factors like price and reach. In 2022, the Steam Deck changed all that. Since its launch, the Deck has seen a lot of games but that’s not the end of it. Even apps for all kinds and purposes have become popular with Steam Deck users. And among these apps is also WeMod.

For the uninitiated, WeMod is a modding and trainer app for single-player games and is used by a ton of players. In fact, WeMod states that it supports over 2500+ single-player games and this is a list that’s only going to increase in numbers. So, it’s only evident that Steam Deck users would also want to use it. So, without much further ado, here’s everything you need to know about how you can install the WeMod app on your Steam Deck.
