LOOT TIER: Legendary weapons are lovely and all, but now there's an even rarer and more powerful tier in town: Effervescent. This tier features high stats, special effects, and some entrancing rainbow textures.
WEAPONS AND EQUIPMENT: With a new top loot tier comes new top loot, including super rare named firearms like a shotgun that fires…well, let's just say there are ponies and rainbows and explosions.
CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS: Each of the six Borderlands 2 Vault Hunters gets a new head and skin, while the two vehicle types receive three new skins apiece. Stylin'!
ENEMIES AND BOSSES: The toxic gas seems to be doing strange things to Pandora's bandit and beast populations, mutating them into deadly "Infected" forms. Expect exploding plant monsters, ferocious boss battles, and a new Raid Boss!
AREAS: Shoot and loot your way through previously unexplored Pandoran locales, including the wreckage of a familiar space station and at least one forbidden research lab.
LEVEL CAP: Pursue the new level cap of 80 (up from 72) and challenge yourself to achieve the two new Overpowered Levels, accessible via Digistruct Peak.
