Borderlands 3 is out now and fans are busy exploring the universe. While some fans are already breaking the game and learning how to duplicate weapons, some fans are just starting out and wondering how to unlock all of the game's features. Class mods are one of the key feature that are locked when players start the game, and only unlock after certain conditions are met. To unlock these powerful customization items, players will need to progress through the story enough, but once they are unlocked class mods will give players a lot more control and power for their skill builds.
Class mods are items in Borderlands 3 that can be equipped to give boost to specific stats and even grant bonus points in skill trees. These items can drop from various sources, including the Golden Chest, Moxxi's slot machines, and random world drops. However, if players acquire them early on in the game, then they will be unable to equip them. To gain access to class mods, players will need to complete the "Hostile Takeover" mission on Promethea. It should not take too long for players to complete this mission if they are focusing on main story quests.
There are several chapters in Borderlands 3, but "Hostile Takeover" is in the early chapters of the game, making class mods pretty easy to unlock. Class mods are going to play a pivotal role in fine-tuning builds as players work towards the endgame, so players should make a point to complete this quest as quick as possible. It will also help the leveling process greatly, as these class mods can roll with skills that can grant major boosts to power. Class mods are more useful than ever in Borderlands 3, as they no longer require players to own the skill being buffed to gain the benefit of the mod.
Borderlands 3 reviews have been positive for the most part, and its clear that fans are enjoying their time back in the Borderlands universe. The game brings plenty of great quality of life improvements, and while it's not perfect, it's a great next step in the series. Borderlands 3 currently has four DLCs planned for after launch, so hopefully the game only gets better in the months to come.
Borderlands 3 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version also in development.
