Revealed in a developer live stream late last month, Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot will feature a new destination filled with new characters to meet and new riches to earn. Players can expect plenty of casino-based challenges as well as new enemies and even new bosses to battle. Of course, DLC 1 also comes with its own fair share of unique items, cosmetics, and other collectible loot.

Gearbox has remained fairly tight-lipped about some of the DLC’s biggest changes, but we have at least learned a few details about other additional content. Chief among the new additions offered in the Borderlands 3 Moxxi DLC will be the brand new FL4K class mod.

Specifically, the DLC introduces the new St4ckbot Legendary class mod, which gives FL4K players the chance to drastically increase their damage output with consecutive hits. This class mod also comes with a bonus also allows players to fire while the Fade Away skill is active, though it’ll cut down on both invisibility time and critical damage.

There are at least two other bonuses that we’ve heard about: One is a bonus to Hunter’s Eye, and though details are slim, it appears that the bonus will offer various damage boosts or cuts depending on the type of enemy being attacked. For now, the third bonus is a total mystery, but at least we won’t have to wait very long to learn the details.

Die-hard Borderlands fans will be pleased to learn that the Borderlands 3 Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot DLC will also be included as part of the game’s Season Pass. Players who pick up the Season Pass now can enjoy DLC 1 as soon as it launches on December 19, and will also gain access to the Butt Stallion weapon skin, trinket, and grenade mod.

Be on the lookout for the release of the Borderlands 3 Moxxi DLC on Thursday, December 19, 2019. The Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot DLC is the first content drop of four total planned DLC packs for the game so far, and the only one to have been given any sort of proper name. As for DLC packs two, three, and four, we’ll be sure to report back with more information as soon as it becomes available.
