Borderlands 3: What is Mayhem Mode?

Borderlands 3: What is Mayhem Mode?

Several reviewers have confirmed it takes roughly 30 or so hours to complete Borderlands 3's main story. For those looking to do a bit more things once they've completed the game, Gearbox Software thought of that. It added an extra mode for players to engage in after they finish the campaign called Mayhem Mode.

This mode is something you can only access once you've finished Borderlands 3. When you find yourself back on your ship, Sanctuary 3, you will be able to use a console to tap into the Mayhem. There are three levels you can go for, but my advice is to start at the beginning and work your way up to the last one. During the final level, enemies can insta-kill you. So what do you get for your trouble and just how hard can it be? Well, this guide is here to help you find out.
