Borderlands 3 has finally been released for PC and consoles, officially marking the return of the popular looter shooter franchise from Gearbox Software. Before you can get to the end game grind and start farming bosses for those sweet Legendary tier drops, though, first you’ll need to beat the story campaign. Here’s how long Borderlands 3 is, and how many missions and chapters there are.
Borderlands 3 Chapters and Missions List
Without getting into spoiler territory, Borderlands 3’s story campaign features a total of 23 chapters. In our playthrough, we managed to beat the campaign in around 25 hours, while also dabbling in a few side missions along the way.
If you’re planning on seeing everything the game has to offer, you’ll almost certainly spend more than 30 hours just checking out the open world and all the available side missions.
We’ve included a list of all the chapter and mission names in the story campaign down below. Do be warned that some of the later mission names might be a tad spoiler-y, however, so look away if you want to go in completely fresh.
