Borderlands the Pre-Sequel Moxxtails Explained

Introduction to Moxxtails

I found some Moonstones during my Borderlands the Pre-Sequel play session. This is a rare currency that replaces Eridium which we know from Borderlands 2. In the description of the Moonstones, it is stated that you can buy some kind of buff with them.

So naturally, during my interview with Borderlands franchise director Matt Armstrong and Tony Lawrence, Head of 2K Aus,  at Gamescom, I asked them about these buffs.

I learned from them that these buffs are similar to the buffs that we have encountered in the Tiny Tina Assault on Dragon Keep DLC. These Moxxtails provide temporary stats buffs that help you on your quest.

You look like you need a stiff drink

Recently I discovered how these new buffs are going to work, they are the booze bottles that you can buy at Moxxi’s bar. You might have seen them in one of the Borderlands the Pre-Sequel Trailers standing on the counter.

As you can see from the screenshot Moxxi is serving up 8 different kinds of Moxxtails that you can drink each with a different kind of status increase.

You will have to choose wisely because you can only have one boost active each time and they cost 10 Moonstones to drink up, and moonshine is a rare currency.

Moxxi’s ‘Up & Over’ Bar

To sum things up 8 different Moxxtails that cost 10 Moonstones each. You can have only one boost active and that one will last for 30 minutes. So fast travel to Concordia and head over to Moxxi’s Bar, which is located to the right, bypass B4R-BOT and look at the counter, there you will find your poison and if you manage to drink them all you will get a achievement (10 Gamerscore)
