What does Hardcore Mode do?

Hardcore Mode requires you to create a new character and set it to Hardcore Mode. Once the character is created you will not be able to re-spawn if you die. This means that if you are killed in either the open world or a boss fight your character will be permanently dead. Players can play both the Story or Adventure mode on any difficulty

If players are inside a Multi-Player game and die, they will be knocked down and can be revived at a World Stone by a team member as long as one of them is alive. If all players would die, then the permadeath system will trigger, and they won't be able to be revived.

      Some tips I've learned are... Avoid doing bosses until you are able to get all the 60 minute consumables. Don't upgrade your gear unless you have to. farm as much as you can. remember to get the submachine gun and grind earth first until you get the sage ring for experience. There is that dlc with the backpack with three elixirs of enlightenment and some scrap. Which is nice.

        I didn't plan on doing HC, but once you've done everything else including Nightmare Mode, it's the next logical step. Here we go!

          Managed to finish full campaign in around 5 and a half hours today, I highly reccomend starting out an adventure and using the analyzer to get claviger for his particle accelerator, after that you can wipe the campaign very easily by staying at the minimum lvl for each dungeon. Dont forget to make a copy of your save file if you're not confident in doing it without dying so you can backup incase of anything.
