Lady Hammerlock, sister to researcher Sir Hammerlock and heir to the family’s fortune, adds a bit of class to Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel’s playable lineup.
Aurelia is included in The Pre-Sequel’s season pass, but a related press release notes that fans who prefer to pick up DLC à la carte can also don her fashionable demeanor for $9.99.
Lady Hammerlock’s progressive branch into Huntress, Cold Money and Contractual Aristocracy skill trees. Huntress focuses on sniping, offering a skill that dishes our critical hit bonuses for each consecutive shot on a target. Cold Money is all about that ice damage, as made clear by one of its abilities implementing Cryo damage with any equipped weapon. Contractual Aristocracy is all about status, as suggested by one of its unlockables reaping Lady Hammerlock bonuses from kills made by her present teammates.
When firefights call for desperate measures, Lady Hammerlock’s Cold As Ice action skill spawns a Frost Diadem Shard that chases down and latches on targets, dealing constant damage until they finally keel over so that the shard can move to its next target.
If you sat out Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in hopes of a current-gen port but still want to get your Lady Hammerlock on, don’t fret — Borderlands Handsome Collection will include all season pass DLC when it arrives on March 24.
