Borderlands 3 features four new playable characters, including FL4K, Amara, MOZE, and ZANE. Players get to complete many missions in the game, which are given by non-playable characters.

The game also features Mayhem Mode, which has three levels of difficulty, and while playing this mode, players can unlock wild loot for themselves. Speaking of the game’s latest update, it has fine-tuned Legendary gear.
