Endgame activities in Borderlands 3 includes all of the stuff that you can do after completing the game, including both things that you’ve skipped over while doing the main missions, and things that unlock after you beat the game. This can include side missions, crew challenges, Mayhem Mode, True Vault Hunter difficulty, and more. In our Borderlands 3 Endgame – What to Do After Completing the Game, we’re going to give you some ideas, in case you’re wondering what to do.
What to do in Endgame after Completing Borderlands 3?
There’s plenty to do in the endgame of Borderlands 3, aka after you’ve completed the main story campaign. It’s a looter-shooter, after all, meaning that the pure acquisition of more power for its own sake is the main draw. So, once you complete the game, you can always strive to grind out your character to level 50. Unlock all the achievements, complete Proving Grounds and Circles of Slaughter. Screw it, get all four characters to level 50 while you’re at it. And if challenge is what you want on top of that, why not re-complete the game on True Vault Hunter difficulty?
But, how does one get up to level 50? Is just blind grinding all there is to it? Not at all. The most obvious options is going back and completing all the side stuff that you might have skipped over throughout your main journey. There’s side missions to complete. There’s crew challenges to do, such as Targets of Opportunity, Crimson Radios, Typhon Logs, and others. Then, of course, you can complete every planet 100% by collecting red chests and whatnot.
But, as I’ve already said, looter-shooters are mostly about gathering power and gear just to do it. So, why not farm bosses and other activities that drop high-value weapons? The better gear you have, the better chances you have to do the Mayhem activities that unlock after you complete the main story. Their difficulty goes up to level 3, so there’s plenty of challenge to go around. Good luck.
