The Borderlands 2 Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack DLC Is Now Available
Available now on Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network and PC is the brand new downloadable content for Borderlands 2, the Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack.
According to Gearbox, the DLC, which “can be replayed multiple times with players able to reset their overall mission progress at any time from the Main Menu” finally raises the game’s level cap from 50 to a strangely non-rounded 61, and brings a new difficulty to the game, the namesake Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, which is unlocked after the player completes True Vault Hunter Mode and reaches level 50. (Done and done.)

Gameplay changes in UVHMM
Enemy health generally increased 4x.
Enemies now have a moderate amount of health regeneration.
Increased duration of slag damage multiplier effect.
Upped the damage that slagged enemies take from 2x to 3x.
Weapon swap speed increased to better facilitate slag use.
Enemies now more likely to drop ammo.
Loot Midgets are now “Legendary Loot Midgets” that can drop Legendary and other top-tier gear.
Available at 400 Magical Sexy Points or $4.99, the Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack is at least a cheap DLC, but if you have a season pass then it’s yours for free. Further, a sixth playable vault hunter not included in the season pass is expected out in May so definitely keep 800 MSP or $9.99 aside for that. And that leaves one more DLC pack for June.
