What's the difference between TVHM and UVHM?



  • A big update hit Borderlands 2 today, and along with adding a new level cap with a bunch of bug/exploit fixes, it added the new mode "Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode".

    What's the difference between "Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode" and "True Vault Hunter Mode"? Has the level scaling changed anyways? Does it affect item drops in any way? Do I have to restart the storyline?



  • Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode is a third playthrough.

    Gameplay changes:

    • Monster level is scaled to highest-leveled player in the party (I believe in TVHM it scales to the host, not sure)
    • Monsters have about 4 times more health and award more experience.
    • Monsters regenerate.
    • Items of new rarity level, Pearlescent, can be found.
    • Slag bonus is +200% instead of +100%.
    • Slag duration is increased.
    • Weapon swap speed is increased.
    • Loot Midgets have a chance to drop Legendary gear.

    The storyline is reset and starts at the entrance to Liar's Berg. You can also reset all quests in UVHM at any time from playthrough selection dialog (default [Q] on PC).
