Borderlands 3: Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot
Today, Gearbox announced their first official DLC campaign for Borderlands 3. An upcoming raid on fan favorite, Moxxi’s, the update will be Borderlands’ last for the year. But there’s no reason to believe 2020 will feature any kind of slow down on content, whatsoever.
Let’s break down what Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, shall we?
With the new DLC update, you’ll be able to open the new realm of The Handsome Jackpot casino, from within the game. The backstory, from what we’ve seen, goes a little something like this:
“Before dying in Borderlands 2, Handsome Jack transformed his space station into a massive casino. Following his death, the base various fighty loader bots and guardians for many years, leaving them to do their own thing. Now, Moxxi wants to open a new station on the ashes of his old one, stealing all of the money and valuables he amassed. And you, with the help of a doubtlessly wild crew, are here to get the job done.”
To access Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, players can simply travel to Sanctuary III after completing Pandora’s opening campaign chapter. To be able to keep up with the DLC, you’ll ideally be around a level 13 character. Come into it with a higher level character, and the enemy levels will adjust to match yours. Regardless, you’ll want to be around a 13 or higher to get the most out of this heist.
The DLC will feature new missions and side quests, updated enemy types, fresh new bosses, and the usual bombardment of bonkers weapons. Also expect to find tons of Handsome Jackpots, heads, skins, weapon accessories, ECHO skins, and cosmetics.
