The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack Two: Digistruct Peak Challenge is a DLC pack for Borderlands 2 released on September 3, 2013. It is not included in the season pass and is priced at $4.99/£3.99.
It increases the level cap to 72, but also introduces a new ranking system called "Overpower levels". This creates an opportunity for players to fight enemies and collect loot rated up to 8 levels above the maximum level (10 levels with Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary).
In normal mode, the level in Digistruct Peak will always be 35.
The pack introduces a new area called Digistruct Peak a mountaintop training ground for the Crimson Raiders. Upon arrival, researcher-turned-freedom fighter Patricia Tannis is waiting to give you the rundown on what’s in store.
The introductory mission, which is balanced for a full team of four players, takes roughly an hour to complete and winds through a series of twisting mountain paths and open spaces, all of which function as battlegrounds in which you’ll meet the full rogue’s gallery of Borderlands 2 enemies.
At first, the types, numbers, and locations of each enemy encountered is static, but an element of randomness is introduced as Overpower level climbs higher.
Even though the level cap is 72 with the DLC installed (or level 80 with the Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary installed), the new ranking system allows enemies and loot to scale up higher - up to 8 levels with the former and 10 with the latter.
The entire world is affected when the game is set to a certain Overpower level; enemies are more deadly, and they drop more powerful loot. Skill advancement still caps out at level 72 or 80, but Overpower levels allow higher-level gear. Once all of the Overpower levels are unlocked and a level 80 game is started, enemies will appear at level 90+, and gear rated for level 90 can be used.
How to Overpower
Upon reaching level 72 or 80 (depending on whether Digistruct Peak is the only DLC installed or not) and the completion of the Digistruct Peak arena in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, Overpower Level 1 unlocks. To access the additional Overpower levels, players must exit the game and reload. Upon restarting the game, a prompt appears that will offer options which Overpower level is desired.
Every time players play through the Digistruct arena at the highest available level, they will unlock the next Overpower level. There are 10 Overpower levels in total with both DLC, meaning the arena must be completed at least 10 times in order to reach the maximum level at Overpower level 10.
In multiplayer games, players at a lower Overpower level cannot inherit levels gained by the host of the game, if the host completes a higher arena challenge. For example, if the host is Overpower level 5 and completes an arena with other players who are at Overpower level 2, only the host will rank up to Overpower level 6. The rest of the team will remain at Overpower level 2, because they are required to complete the earlier power levels.
If the host and any additional players are at the same Overpower level when a round is started, they will all rank up to the next Overpower level once the arena is completed. The table below describes the effective level that game scales enemies to, when you reach a particular Overpower level:
|Effective Level (Level cap 80)||81||82||83||84||85||86||87||88||89||90|
Effective Level (Level cap 72)
As additional Overpower levels are gained, enemies will generally begin to spawn at higher levels. These enemies receive a passive damage reduction that is based upon how many levels they outrank playable characters. Damage reduction simply means they receive less damage from weapons and powers than they normally would. The exact percentages are expressed in the table below:
|Levels above you||+2||+3||+4||+5||+6||+7||+8||+9||+10||+11||+20|
For example, at level 80 and Overpower level 10, weapons will deal 10% less damage against a level 82 enemy or 55% less damage against a level 88 enemy.
Generally, most regular enemies will cap at around 80 or 92, but there are a few exceptions to this. The Ancient Dragons of Destruction, Dexiduous the Invincible, and Vermivorous the Invincible can reach 3 levels higher than the cap (83 or 93), which grants them 70% damage reduction. Bridget Hodunk and Colin Zaford cap out at 5 levels higher (85 or 95), making them the highest possible level among bosses.
Standard goliath enemies can level up to 4 levels higher upon reaching GOD-liath status (84 or 94). The Iron GOD, a max level Golem, can reach a whopping level 92 or 102 - the highest in game. This grants him a staggering 99.2% damage reduction which means weapons will only deal 0.8% of their actual damage against them.
As with the first upgrade pack, there are a second set of pearlescent weapons to find:
|Name of Weapon||Type of Weapon||Manufacturer||Red Text Flavor + Effect|
|Carnage||Shotgun||Torgue||huh. It shoots rockets. – Massively increased damage. Reduced projectile count & increased ammo cost. Projectiles imitate Torgue rockets.|
