Arms Race is the galaxy's premier reality murder show, hosted by former Vault Hunters-turned-ECHOcast commentators, Axton and Salvador. This endlessly replayable mode is a mad dash to gear up your Vault Hunter from scratch and successfully extract the best loot you can find, lest you die and lose it all. Arms Race changes the rules and introduces a new area and challenge to create an entirely different roguelike experience within Borderlands 3!
Arms Race mode takes place in the Stormblind Complex, a decommissioned DAHL military base. This wintry setting is ravaged perpetually by calamitous weather known as the Murdercane—short for 'murder hurricane,' naturally.
You're stripped of your gear and dropped onto a random location in the complex to frantically fend off attackers using whatever weapons and gear you can find. Everyone starts Arms Race on equal footing, but only the best will weather the encroaching storm, defeat the final boss, and claim coveted new Legendary weapons and items.
Vault Hunters looking to broaden their horizons can now wield the power of an additional skill tree for each Vault Hunter, complete with fresh Action Skills and potent passive abilities.
Bowl a bloody path through your opposition with Amara the Siren's Enlightened Force skill tree, featuring Cryo elemental effects and the Phaseflare orb of death!
Render enemies helpless with FL4K the Beastmaster's Trapper skill tree, immobilizing your prey with the Gravity Snare so you and your new Loader Bot companion can get a clean shot!
Be the proudest mech momma with Moze the Gunner's Bear Mother skill tree, which replaces Iron Bear with the self-piloting, adorably tiny (but still exceptionally deadly) Iron Cub!
Eliminate targets with lethal precision using Zane the Operative's The Professional skill tree, sniping faraway foes using the MNTIS Shoulder Cannon and its multiple charges.
The Multiverse Final Form Cosmetics imagine what our heroes would've looked like if they never became Vault Hunters! Each eye-catching pack contains a one-of-a-kind Vault Hunter Body with a new Head to match.
*All Multiverse Final Form Cosmetic Packs will be granted to owners of the original Season Pass or Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition, as well as owners of Season Pass 2, Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition, or Borderlands 3 Next-Level Edition.
Scheduled for Spring 2021; stay tuned for more details!
