Borderlands 2 gets Pre-Sequel inspired Heads and Skins

Posted on July 17, 2014 AT 05:11am

Gearbox has added several new heads and skins based on characters from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel to Borderlands 2.

A new update for the game on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC has added heads and skins as extremely rare drops in-game that will see the Vault Hunters cosplaying as their favorite characters from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, such as Axton as Athena, Maya as Nisha, and Gaige as Moon Moxxi. A full list can be found below:

  • Axton as Athena
  • Salvador as Wilhelm
  • Maya as Nisha
  • Zer0 as Claptrap
  • Gaige as Moon Moxxi
  • Krieg as a Scav

If you don’t feel like grinding enemies for a chance at these new additions then there is another way. From tomorrow, July 18, Gearbox will be releasing SHiFT codes each week that will unlock one of the character customization. First up is Axton on July 18, then Salvador on July 25, Maya on August 1, Zero on August 8, Gaige on August 15, and finally Krieg on August 22.

You can grab the codes over on the official Gearbox site as they become available.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be available from October 14 in North America and October 17 in Europe for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
