DLC 6 also features some new story missions featuring Ava. Are you ready for a 'Borderlands 3' murder mystery? Gearbox Software/2K Games
  • Hemovorous the Invincible: A new raid boss is making its way to Pandora with some of the best loot in the entire game. Once you've beat the campaign, you can pay 500 Eridium to take her on. This fight scales to Mayhem and characters beyond the level cap, so expect it to be challenging.
  • Murder Mystery story missions: Help Ava track down a lead for her podcast that takes her to Pandora, Promethea, Eden-6 and Nekrotafeyo. These missions will have you investigating crime scenes instead of running and gunning.
  • Behind-the-scenes content: View concept art, storyboards and other interesting artifacts from the development of Borderlands 3.
  • Vault Cards: These are challenge-based reward tracks that offer nostalgic cosmetics and lots of XP. Only the first card will be available on Thursday, but there are two more Vault Cards due out by year's end. Each card features three daily challenges and one weekly.
  • New Machines: There will be an Anointment reroll machine, called Crazy Earl's Reroll, and Maurice's Black Market Machine. The latter goes to a set location each week, so the community can work together to find it.
  • Diamond Armory: Use Diamond Keys to roll for a shield, grenade or gun. It can even roll DLC Legendaries.

That's all we know about Borderlands 3 DLC 6 for now. For the rest, you'll just have to wait till the Director's Cut releases to see it for yourself.

Borderlands 3 is available now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC and Stadia.
