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.

The DLC increases the level cap to 72, but also introduces a new ranking system called "Overpower levels". This creates an opportunity for fighting enemies and collecting loot rated up to 10 levels with Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary.

In normal mode, the level in Digistruct Peak will always be 35.

Jason Reiss, Gearbox designer
— It truly is a very challenging area. I’m hoping that the fans are prepared for it and willing to take it one step at a time. It’s about learning the area and learning the encounters. Until you get to the higher ranks, when we start mixing it up and add the randomness."

The pack introduces a new area called Digistruct Peak Challenge: a mountaintop training ground for the Crimson Raiders. Upon arrival, researcher-turned-freedom fighter Patricia Tannis is waiting to give 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 characters encounter 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 levels climb higher.

Overpower Levels

Even though the level cap is 80 with the DLC installed, the new ranking system allows enemies and loot to scale up higher - up to 10 additional levels.

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 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 80 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 for which Overpower level is desired.

Every time players play through the Digistruct arena at the highest available level the next Overpower level becomes unlocked. There are 10 Overpower levels in total, meaning the arena must be completed at least 10 times in order to reach the maximum Overpower level of 10.

In multiplayer games, characters 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 characters 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 characters 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 characters reach a particular Overpower level:

Overpower Level 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Effective Level 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90

Damage Reduction

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. The exact damage reduction percentages are expressed in the table below:

Levels above character +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8 +9 +10 +11 +20
Damage Reduction 10% 20% 30% 40% 45% 50% 55% 60% 65% 70% 99.2%

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 92, but there are a few exceptions to this. The Ancient Dragons of DestructionDexiduous the Invincible, and Vermivorous the Invincible can reach 3 levels higher, level 93, which grants them 70% damage reduction. Bridget Hodunk and Colin Zaford  cap out at 95, making them the highest possible level among bosses.

Standard goliath enemies can level up to 4 levels higher upon reaching GOD-liath status at 94. The Iron GOD, a max level Golem, can reach level 102 - the highest in game. This grants them a 99.2% damage reduction, meaning weapons will only deal 0.8% of their actual damage against them.

Weapons

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.
Wanderlust E-tech Pistol Maliwan You never know until you go. – Minimal accuracy (Usually 1.0). Increased magazine size. Decreased reload speed. Shoots ricocheting homing darts that explode on contact with enemy.
Bekah Assault Rifle Jakobs Shoot them in the face. Twice. – Fires a slow-moving projectile. After a set time, projectile will split into three more that spread in a horizontal pattern at an increasing speed.
