VIP rewards question

Hello i’m only level 10 in tps atm, I would like to redeme the Ol’Painful weapon from the vip rewards 4,000 points.
Question, will that weapon also be level 10, if so ill wait until have ranked up before redeeming it.

It’ll be the level of the first character you load after redeeming it unless I’m mistaken. So level 10.

Okay time to go level up first and thanks for the fast reply

Don’t use your points for it. It’s very easy to obtain, and kinda lame weapon. What platform are you playing? If PS4 I can give you one of my Ol’Painfuls.

Might be worth asking if anyone can guardian hunter powerlevel you a mule to hold the gun if you want to get it now. I’m not sure whether the guns on offer will change with season changes for the rewards, or if they’ll just add to the selection.


@GrzesPL they might be wanting to redeem the weapon towards the bl3 reward weapon.

If that’s a case, just pick Absolute Zero.

I rolled the free weapon you can clain on the vip website and funnily enough thats the weapon it gave me.
shame im level 10 though

Ah, if you’ve already rolled it you’ll have it on level now unfortunately.

As I said, it’s easy to obtain. Don’t worry, and you can always ask, maybe someone will have some spares. I have lvl 6, 16, 27 and 70.

You need to claim at least 4 VIP weapons if you want this Legendary gun in BL3. Right now is better to wait for Season 2 and 3 and new rewards. All the rewards will be available all the time.

Wasn’t 100% on that. I’d only had a quick glance at the free spin and decided to save my points to see what else was on offer.

Just got on the game, im a level 16 athena character. back to the Absolute Zero weapon, it says i got the gun and that it’s in the shift vending machine repository and will be the same level as the character that redeems it…
So i can leave it there and claim it once at a decent level :slight_smile:

Here is more info about it https://borderlands.com/en-US/news/2019-06-06-vip-season-1-rewards-now-available/

Additional rewards and Weaponizers will be added when VIP Season 2 starts in July, at which time all the VIP Season 1 rewards will still be available.

Yes for TPS. For BL2 weapons it will be in the backpack of first loaded character.
