Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, the first of four Borderlands 3 DLC packs, is now available to download and play on all platforms. (Well, except for Stadia.) Of course, this isn’t a free update like the recent Takedown; If you didn’t buy the game’s Season Pass or Super Deluxe Edition, you will need to purchase the DLC first. With that done, you can head into the Handsome Jackpot and experience Gearbox’s all-new story DLC…
Borderlands 3 DLC: Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot
“A way into The Handsome Jackpot has been found,” writes Gearbox; “and after seven years on lockdown this once-opulent, now-derelict space station casino is a must-visit for Vault Hunters in search of new adventures, new enemies, and of course, new loot. Moxxi has asked for your help in seizing control of The Handsome Jackpot as the ultimate act of vengeance against her villainous ex Handsome Jack.”
Indeed, while Jack may be long-dead, fans of the classic Borderlands 2 villain are in luck, as he makes more than a few appearances throughout this DLC. (Albeit in the form of pre-recorded holographic messages.) Unlike Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite, which launched recently, the new DLC isn’t exclusively endgame content. Enemies within the Handsome Jackpot scale to whatever level players are when they arrive. To enter, all you need to do is reach the point where you gain access to Sanctuary III. Then, at any point, you can interact with a Handsome Jackpot poster outside Moxxi’s bar inside the ship to get started.
Of course, just getting into the Casino is the easy part. Once you’ve fought your way inside, you’ll have to deal with crazed gangs of survivors, as well as the station’s automated defences. Those defences, notably, include plenty of Loader Bots; the classic Borderlands 2 enemy which is making its return for the first time in Borderlands 3. Beyond that, players can expect new bosses and plenty of new loot to find within.
