This guide is designed to help you set up Vortex to install and manage mods for Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Getting Set Up

Info.png
Notice
This section only applies to the Windows Store version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Take control of the ModifiableWindowsApps folder.

Setting the deployment method (Optional)

Depending on your settings, Vortex may select "Symlink Deployment (Run as Administrator)" as the default. This is perfectly fine to use but will require you to accept a security prompt from Windows each time you deploy or change your mods.

To avoid this, you may want to go to Settings > Mods and change the deployment method to "Hardlink deployment", then click "Apply". This will require one final security prompt to save the change.

Installing Mods

To get started you'll need to visit the Nexus Mods page for Halo: The Master Chief Collection and choose a mod you'd like to download. On the mod page, the Vortex buttons will allow you to download mods directly into the mod manager.
