Default Normal mode vs. True Vault Hunter Mode

Whats the difference? I am going to assume TVHM is more difficult and gives out better loot, but will I loose any of my char's data (guns, level, etc.) ?

I just beat the game, and am now going to go do the side missions I never completed... thanks for the responses ahead of time!

Enemies are now level 35+. You don't lose anything because you're using the same character. Your guns and your storage vault will carry over.

Only thing that will reset is your quests. And remember, you can always switch back to your playtrough 1 whenever you want to

How do you get out of true vault hunter mode?

From the main menu press triangle, then choose an existing character that has already completed normal mode, and then you will get a choice between Normal mode and TVHM.

Just bare in mind that whichever you choose you the game will automatically take you to that mode whenever you press "Continue" at the menu and will always take you to that mode until you manually choose the other game mode through the main menu again.

well if you never played borderlands 1, it's pretty much taking all your stats/guns n inventory and current level and having you start over where the enemies are on your level from the very start of the game. Which gives you chances to acquire more powerful weapons. With all the dlc from the first it was possible to have a playthrough 3 too.

TVHM - True Vault Hunter Mode is just a different name for Playthrough 2 gearbox made so those who never played the original like new fans wouldn't get confused. It does the same thing as the original game, your stats, badass rank, weapons inventory, current level challenges completed all carry over to a new game with level 33+ enemies and higher chances to getting better loot.

I got a question about TVHM. I'm close to finishing my PT2 and someone told me that all side-mission, etc. will be upped to lvl 50/52 after beating PT2. Does that also count for side-missions that I've already started and maybe already have completed 1 objective?

Mostly I'm wondering because of loot of course but I still have the Flesh-Stick mission open. This way I could help a friend level up a character much quicker.

No. You need to start it in Pt2.5 (which unlock automatically after beating Pt2. It's not actually a mode you can choose though, such as Normal and TVH mode).

Cheers for the quick response. Yeah, I know what PT2.5 is. Ah fuck...that wasn't the answer I was hoping for. There is that one mission in Sanctuary where you can get the pistol with 100% melee damage and have already started it....crap...I wanted to save that one after beating TVHM.

Anyway thx for the info mate. Great job on the guides btw!
