The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock

The engagement party celebrating the upcoming union of Sir Alistair Hammerlock and Wainwright Jakobs is now in full swing on the brand new ice planet Xylourgos! Borderlands 3’s second campaign add-on – Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock – is now available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Stadia.

As an honored guest at this Lovecraftian engagement party, you'll have to fight back the forces of otherworldly evil if Wainwright and Hammerlock are to have their happily ever after. Luckily, the most badass wedding planner in the galaxy has your back: Gaige, a former Vault Hunter who’s inseparable from her robot BFF Deathtrap.

And that’s not all:
• Explore multiple zones on the all-new planet of Xylourgos
• Complete spine-tingling new story and side missions
• Confront new enemies including alien beasts, mutated occultists, and formidable bosses
• Add new Legendary Weapons, Class Mods, and other gear to your arsenal
• Collect new Vault Hunter Heads and Skins, Vehicle Skins, and interactive Room Decorations

In order to reach Xylourgos with an existing Vault Hunter, you’ll need access to Sanctuary III, the starship you unlock by completing Episode 5 of Borderlands 3’s main story campaign. When you’re ready to travel to Xylourgos, look for the invitation – highlighted with a yellow exclamation mark – in Hammerlock’s study.

Alternatively, you have the option to create a new Vault Hunter and bypass the opening acts of the Borderlands 3 story so you can head straight to Xylourgos. If you have a campaign add-on installed and would like to play that content with a fresh Vault Hunter, select Play on the main menu, followed by New Game. You'll then be able to choose which storyline you want to jump into.

Guns, Love, and Tentacles is the second of four campaign add-ons included with the Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition and Season Pass. It’s also available to purchase separately, though you will need to own a copy of Borderlands 3 to play it.
