Personalize Your Vault Hunter
All of the playable characters come with their own skill tree that players are free to fill out based on their own playstyle. Skills can include additional gun damage to adding new features to their Action Skills.
Arm Yourself with Unique Weapons & Equipment
No weapon or item is the same in Borderlands 3! Each one is unique from its parts, functions, and special features. Prepare to go through thousands upon thousands of weapons and items!
Travel Across The Universe
