What is Borderlands 2.5?

Borderlands 2.5 is a mod, created to give Borderlands 2 a fresh experience, finding new loot all over again, fighting reworked boss fights and having completely overhauled characters.

Borderlands 2.5 is by no means complete yet, and there's still a bunch of changes to come! If you want to keep updated with Borderlands 2.5, talk, send feedback or just talk, be sure to join our discord server!

There is no changelog for 2.5! This is intended, we want people to play it like it was Borderlands on release again, figure everything out on their own, what do the weapons do? What loot does said boss drop? and much more! However, we do have sheets, here's some sheets you can take a look at (which does include changes)

Class Mods

Known issues

    1. Maya & Krieg have weird interactions with their built-in effects not working (Phaselock going to other enemies, Bloodlust), this seems to be only the case when you just unlock your action skill. The only known fix is save quitting - we're looking into this!

How to install
If you already have BL2 mods installed, all you have to do is put Borderlands 2.5 in your Binaries folder. If not, read below.

Currently, the Hex-Editing of BLCMM is broken, please watch this video to know how to hex-edit after the UHD patch: (Video to fix hex-editing after UHD)
Hex-Multi Tool: Nexus Page (this is required to hex-edit)
BLCMM: Video about BLCMM (this is required for anything else, such as configuring mods)

Incompatibility List

Quality of Life mods work, the rest wont. However do note that there's no "hard" compatibility, everything can be made compatable but this mod is supposed to be played standalone. By adding extra mods you can expect unintended behavior or even instabilities.




  1. Fixed some things not being categorized in the file properly
  2. Removed Extra Spawns due to issues introduced because of the new DLC.

Vault Hunters:

  1.  Fixed an issue that made it so Gemini didn't boost the Turret's duration

  1. Life Tap nerfed from 0.8% per point to 0.3% per point
  2. Ward Shield Recharge Delay from -10% per point to -8% per point
  3. Scourge Damage Nerfed

  1.  Fistful of Hurt from 10x Damage to 6x

  1.  Bloody Blade from 0.8% Lifesteal to 0.3%
  2.  Light the Fuse Damage Nerf
  3.  Shredded Swiftness 10% Movement Speed to 6% Movement Speed per point

  1. Changed Charged Shot's new particle effect to actually unload unused Emitters completely, this is done to hopefully fix an issue with BL2 that's already in the base game that makes Interspersed Outburst (Charged Shot) crash your game.
  2. Special Ingredients Electrical Burn Chance from 7% to 6%
  3. Special Ingredients Incendiary Burn now deals 80% damage instead of 120%
  4. Supercharged Circuits from 0.2% per point to 0.1% per point
  5. All of Supercharged Mags' stats from 6% to 5%

Gear/Loot Changes:

Because of a massive update to gear, the loot changes for this patch will be tied together so things will be more clear and less confusing.
The goal of this update is that we felt like missions weren't as rewarding due to the fact that you got no special items anymore - which is addressed this update. All mission rewards will be part locked (so you don't have bad rolls) and they will no longer be Legendary rarity. Furthermore, you will no longer have to pick from one or the other reward. If a quest involves 2 people, only 1 of them will have a unique reward.

  1. Fixed matching bonuses still existing on some grips.
  2. Agni damage nerfed by 78% (this includes the M90 Hybrid)
  3. M90 damage nerfed by 35%
  4. Talona now consumes 6 ammo per shot
  5. Talona 200% Status Effect Damage Nerf
  6. Talona 100% Status Effect Chance Nerf
  7. Party Popper bullet split time changes. (.4, .6, .8, 1.0 to .4, .8, 1.2, 1.6)
  8. Party Popper 120% Damage Nerf
  9. Demonic Janus 100% Damage Buff
  10. Wrath of Zeus has been removed for now
  11. Super Shocker has been reworked due to inconsistensy reasons
  12. The Impaler replacement has been named instead of "Placeholder"

The Angelic version of the Janus has been underperforming, so with these changes we'd like to make it a universally better weapon but still the best paired with melee stats/characters.

  1. Angelic Janus now costs 3 ammo per shot
  2. Angelic Janus damage increased by 200%
  3. Angelic Janus from 150 splash radius to 300
  4. The splash of the Angelic Janus no longer knocks you or enemies back/around
  5. Angelic Janus' bullet is no longer stationary, instead it now slightly moves forward (Speed 1 > 150)
  6. Thunderstruck 20% Weapon Damage Buff
  7. Thunderstruck 10% Fire Rate Buff
  8. Thunderstruck bullets are now slightly faster
  9. Thunderstruck is now a Mission Reward from Moxxi in "Safe and Sound"
  10. Savage Lee now drops the Dash.
  11. Wildcat now properly shows the crit increase on the card
  12. Wildcat has been reworked to be more of a Bandit/Maliwan SMG
  13. Wildcat is now a Mission Reward from A Real Boy: Human
  14. Arguk the Butcher no longer drops the Wildcat
  15. Pocket Rocket is now a Mission Reward from Claptrap's "Best Minion Ever"
  16. Pocket Rocket 25% Weapon Damage Buff
  17. Greed is now a Mission Reward from Clan War: End of the Rainbow
  18. Greed Monetary Value Reduced

Unfortunately, shields can't be part locked as easily due to limitations of amount of parts, so shields can't be part locked for mission rewards.

  1.  Love Thumper replaced to the Civilian
  2.  Civilian is a Mission Reward from Wildlife Preservation

  1. Mister Boney Pants Guy can no longer drop the Bunny

In the upcoming updates, we want to make Pearls more accessible from Raid Bosses to reward you. Starting with these changes, every Raid will get dedicated pearls that drop from them in the future.

  1.  Boss Loot now drops more loot on the bosses they're assigned to (all main story bosses)
  2.  Voracidious now drops the Fleshripper instead of the Mike's Hawk Eye


  1. Wilhelm's health reduced by 150%
  2. Wilhelm's health increased by 150% in UVHM
  3. Jack's Health reduced from 180 > 100 in NVHM
  4. Jack's Health reduced from 200 > 150 in TVHM+
