Following the debut of Amara and FL4K’s brand new Skill Trees earlier this week, the 2K today revealed Moze and Zane’s new Skill Trees, which will be available as part of the Designer’s Cut add-on coming to Borderlands 3 on November 10th.
Moze’s new Bear Mother Skill Tree swaps her massive pilotable mech Iron Bear for a smaller but totally autonomous mini-mech called Iron Cub, which will rip your enemies to shreds alongside you (at least until its tank runs dry). While Iron Bear and Iron Cub are mutually exclusive Action Skills, the majority of the bonuses that apply to Iron Bear also work on Iron Cub, including its arsenal of Hard Point weapon attachments. This Skill Tree also rewards you for setting enemies ablaze – a perfect fit for fans of Hard Point weapons like the Salamander flamethrower.
Thanks to his new Skill Tree, The Professional, Zane can now equip the MNTIS Shoulder Canon, a high-tech railgun with multiple charges that can snipe enemies with lethal precision. But that’s not the only option. When paired with the No Way Out augment – which you’ll find further down this Skill Tree – the MNTIS fires a grappling hook that yanks enemies directly to you, allowing you to deal damage up close. It’s a completely different playstyle compared to Zane’s usual ranged specialty.
