Arms Race is a stand-alone game mode that is part of the Designer’s Cut that was released on November 10th, 2020. This 5th DLC package is part of Season Pass 2 but can also be purchased individually. The package contains the Arms Race Mode and an additional skill tree for each of the Vault Hunters.
Arms Race has its own unique Legendary items that you need to extract in order to use them. If you are looking for the Legendary Class Mods that compliment the new purple Skill Trees, they only drop in Arms Race.
Personally, I have had fun with the new mode, you can read all about it in my Arms Race Review.

Best Arms Race Legendary Weapons
These are my favorite legendaries that you can obtain in Arms Race. But be sure to check out all weapons as my playstyle might not reflect yours.
Legendary Weapon List
DLC5 contains a bunch of new legendary items. While they drop inside the Arms Race map, you can only start using them when you extracted the item to Sanctuary 3. Throughout the Arms Race match, you can find these extractors. With these, you can send your newfound loot back home to your bank on Sanctuary 3.
