Borderlands 3’s new skill trees offer gravity snares and killer energy orbs

Just last week, Gearbox announced Borderlands 3 Season Pass 2. Now, we've got our first look at two shiny and new pieces of content that will arrive as part of the incoming 'Designer's Cut' add-on, which is currently set to land on November 10. Fresh skill trees for Amara and FL4K have been detailed for the first time. As you might imagine, both trees come bearing new action skills and passive abilities, giving you the chance to hone each character into the vault-hunting badass of your dreams. Amara's 'Phaseflare' action skill summons forth a giant energy orb that you control manually. She'll also soon be able to freeze her unlucky enemies using cryo elemental effects unlocked via her 'Enlightened Force' skill tree. Her new passives buff her elemental damage and can slow enemies to a crawl, which should make landing a hit with the Phaseflare a cinch. FL4K's new 'Gravity Snare' action skill will periodically send enemies flying into the air, which interrupts their attacks and results in them going splat on the floor. FL4K and their pet can also gain some handy shield bonuses and added damage via increased critical hit effects through the 'Trapper' skill tree.
