Just about everything you do in Borderlands 3 nets your expertise, however, should you’re seeking to attain stage 50 quick, prioritization is vital. When you hit the extent cap, expertise retains cultivating in direction of an infinite provide of Guardian Rank factors. The leveling by no means ends in Borderlands 3, regardless that life does. To profit from our restricted time respiration right here’s just a few pointers for tips on how to go about leveling rapidly and effectively in Borderlands 3.
Prioritize the marketing campaign
Not solely does the marketing campaign pack the most important and most frequent expertise rewards, however taking part in it unlocks further talents and kit slots you’ll need earlier than later. This one’s a given, however, don’t count on beelining the marketing campaign to carry you near the extent cap. There’s a lot of extra work to do.
Don’t ignore the collectibles
Whereas operating in regards to the map, make sure you zig-zag, if solely to disclose extra of it and in flip extra collectibles. Every pumps out a good expertise bonus, so make a pitstop when smart.
However, don’t attempt to discover them unexpectedly
Extra one-off fights and doodads get tossed into every zone after a sure level within the story, so cleansing up a zone early on received really clear up the zone. It’s extra environment-friendly to finish everything as soon as it’s all been unlocked to keep away from retreading the identical floor and squandering precious leveling time.
Save the majority of sidequests for later
Some sidequests reward weapons with stats rolled at your present stage. To verify they’re not immediately ineffective, it’s greatest to save lots of these sidequests for the trail from stage 40 to 50. Apart from, sidequests will frequently match your stage when you’ve completed the marketing campaign. Maximize their advantages by saving some for the final.
Search for artifacts with expertise bonuses
It takes some time to unlock the flexibility to equip artifacts, however, when you do, the chance for XP bonuses rears its bonus-y head. I discovered an artifact with a 7% bonus to expertise, which isn’t a paltry quantity within the sluggish trek from stage 40 to 50. Each bit helps.
Play with a high-level pal
Co-op play with a high-level pal of their marketing campaign will actually juice the expertise acquire, doling out level-ups each jiffy if the gulf between you and them is massive sufficient. Granted, this implies you’ll seemingly see quests and places you haven’t unlocked but, so it’s greatest to save lots of friend-leveling for rapidly powering up a second, third, or fourth character.
Repeat the endgame trials
With the marketing campaign wrapped, some infinitely repeatable quests develop into accessible. You’ll discover the trials at outdated places, so scoop them up whereas cleansing up sidequests and collectibles. Ending them rapidly yields higher rewards, but it surely’ll take some work. Every trial makes a specialty of completely different enemy factions and environments, throwing a ton of the hardest goons within the recreation at you earlier than wrapping with a cussed boss. Everyone is one hell of a concentrated dose of expertise and loot. Grasp them.
Up the Mayhem
Mayhem Mode is a toggle you’ll be able to allow or disable at any time to extend the problem and ensuing rewards when you’ve completed the marketing campaign. With three ranges of the issue to work via, Mayhem Mode pairs effectively with the endgame trials as a precursor to a second playthrough in True Vault Hunter Mode. By then, you’ll be in the identical endgame grind as everybody else, that countless thirst for the next Guardian Rank and barely higher gear from right here into infinity (or the subsequent DLC launch).
