Forums: Index > Watercooler > Reverting from the True Vault Hunter Mode

So I finished The Pre-Sequel and finsihed up a couple of other things after defeating the warrior. I shut down and when I restarted I was given the option to start in true Vault Hunter mode. I thought, "Sure, sounds good." Turns out, not so good. I really need more weapons or a higher rank. When I started in the new mode, it said I could switch back at any time. I don't see that as an option. Also, if I do switch back, does that mean I start completely over? If so, bag that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Miltownerb (talkcontribs)

On the main menu, press the corresponding button to switch characters (Y on X360, Triangle on PS3, I don't know PC). A new mini-menu will pop-up showing you all characters you have (on your storage device currently in use). Select the character you want to play. Another little pop-up will appear asking you which playthrough you want to play on: Normal mode is the first playthrough, True Vault Hunter mode is the second playthrough, and, when you have access to it after beating TVHM and reaching Lvl. 50, Ultimate Vault Hunter mode is the third playthrough. By doing this, it is possible to switch between all available playthroughs on a particular character. I hope this helps and I apologize for my vagueness and misdirection (and this block of text) - I'm typing this solely from memory and I'm extremely out of it today after taking an exam.

To answer the question posed in the opening post, no, heading back to normal mode puts the character back into the "Normal" game mode with all the missions (and Fast Travel unlocks) left in the state they were in during that game mode. If there were some incomplete missions, for example, then there will be those to go back and do. As for the surprising jump in difficulty, there is always the option of hunting high level bosses for experience and loot before returning to True Vault Hunter Mode. Aside from the Sentinel at the end of the game there is also Odjurymir in Serenity's Waste. -- WarBlade (talk) 15:57, February 16, 2015 (UTC)
