Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language
This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a Vault Hunter engaging in combat missions while traversing through planets on foot and in vehicles. Players explore new planets, interact with characters, and accept missions to kill specific enemies or obtain objects/information. Players use pistols, machine guns, shotguns, grenade launchers, and explosives to kill enemies in frenetic combat. Battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, cries of pain, and frequent blood-splatter effects. Some weapons cause enemies to explode into blood sprays and body parts. Stylized environments depict further instances of violence and gore: severed heads on spikes; a human corpse on a spit fire; a giant grinder emitting body parts and blood; a birthday cake decorated with severed fingers. The game contains some sexual material, mostly in the dialogue (e.g., “Looks like someone won't be getting a pre-coital foot rub”; “...I wasn't always the smokin' hot six-stroke sex engine I am today”; “I'm talkin' sex stuff! Two rounds if I've got the juice.”). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in dialogue.
