Headhunter DLC Question
Hey guys,
So I stopped playing on my XBox right after Tiny Tina came out. Now I see these head hunter DLCs. I had picked up this game for PC during Holiday sale, I'm starting new characters now. For the DLC, does it scale in levels (even in Playthrough One), or is it a set level? Can I go visit these at any time during my first playthrough is my main question, I'd like to explore the content I haven't yet as soon as possible.

Thanks so much!

The Enemies start at Level 15, maximum Level cap is something about level 30 i think. In Normal mode.

Awesome. So as long as I'm level 15 I should be fine. By saying Level cap is 30 you mean they'll scale with you up until level 30, correct?

Thanks for the quick response!

Enemies don't do Hard Scaling unless you are playing on Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode. Hard Scaling is when, if you gain a level, so do they. In theory, if you were Level 1 on UVHM, everything else would be as well, including the Final Boss.

Normal and TVHM use Soft Scaling. A mission might be Level 15, if you clear it at Level 20, the next one might be Level 18, clear that at 25, the next might be 24. It scales up to you somewhat, but only at set intervals, and it has limitations.

All DLCs play by the rules of the games difficulty, so Tiny Tina DLC only Hard Scales on UVHM, otherwise Soft Scales. Make sense?

the halloween one is good and has a tricky secret boss to unlock that takes a lot of steps but almost guarantees a legendary rocket launcher drop.
I didnt try 2 or 3 but found myself convinced to try the 4th one.
The 4th one sucked pretty bad.

Okay, thanks for the responses. I'll field it and see what happens, I just am eager to play stuff I haven't already and didn't want to get myself frustrated if it wasn't meant for my level range.

Does that count for all headhunter dlcs?

What i have experienced is the following :
If you're playing only solo, the level of a headhunter will be fixed at the level you first enter it, with a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 35 in normal vault hunter mode.
However if you ever play coop at any time, then the level will be fixed at 15 even if you enter at a higher level.
