Takedown at Maliwan’s Blacksite – Borderlands 3

Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite Official Trailer - Borderlands 3


Starting November 21, you can play the Takedown at Maliwan’s Blacksite. This is a free piece of content for Borderlands 3 that will be permanently available, unlike the Boodly Harvest which is a seasonal event. The Takedown is unlocked after you completed the main story campaign and is designed to be played at level 50 with 3 co-op buddies. You can still attempt this addon as a solo player but the core design is to really challenge you. So expect to make some skill tree changes to counter the challenges that this addon throws at you. If you don’t make it past the first line of Maliwan’s defense, you can always try and queue up in public matchmaking.

Takedown Tips

    It’s pretty great, challenging, chaotic and fun! Not to mention the soundtrack is fucking amazing, especially the Valkyries boss fight! Can’t wait till that’s uploaded lol

  2. Ivo Bovendeerd

    Very hard on Mayhem 4 🥴

  3. Dan Monkman

    Possible to do solo?

    • MentalMars

      I have seen a few people complete a solo run on Mayhem 4. But you need skills and a uber build.

  4. Taylor Jamison

    Would be great, if we didn’t accidentally start our game over 😥

    • Taylor Jamison

      (if there is a way to activate this without finishing a current playthrough advice would be rad)

  5. Lexi Baldauf

    Tried beating it with a full squad and not even on mayhem, and wotan is really hard.
    It was fun in a team, and we finally beat it, but unfortunately it was bugged and didn’t complete the mission 😭
    So we have to try it again next weekend and hope it won’t happen again.
    It’s certainly nothing I’ll ever be able to do solo though, not even without mayhem mode on. Raid bosses aren’t my strength unfortunately. I may be obsessed with Borderlands, but still a casual gamer, enjoying mobbing on m3 and even m4, but raids…not for me 😥
