Moxxtails are consumables found in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are only available through purchase at Moxxi's Up Over Bar in Concordia.

Squill syrup

A Moxxtail item card.

Moxxtail timer

Timer displayed for the current Moxx-tail's effects.

The item cards for Moxx-tails are similar in layout to those of weapons and shields, with the addition of the text, "You look like you need a stiff drink." above the effect of the item. Below is flavor text and effect explanations. The manufacturer logo is a "Moxxi's" logo similar to the others found around the bar. The item icon is also unique.

Each Moxx-tail costs 10 moonstones (20 in True Vault Hunter Mode) and bestows a single unique effect which lasts for 30 minutes. Exiting the game, even saving and returning to the title screen, will result in the loss of the effect upon entering the game again. Only one may be active at a time; buying a new drink will remove the effects of the previous drink and reset the timer to 30 minutes.

  • Hot Gazpacho is a reference to the sixth episode of the science fiction sitcom Red Dwarf.
