How to Respec Your Character

In Borderlands 3 , you’ll need to spend the skill points you earn while playing to unlock new abilities and skills. Don’t worry too much about planning your build early on, as you can always respec your character.

  1. Head to any Quick-Change Machine
  2. Select the ‘Respec’ option
  3. From here you can reset the Skill Points you’ve spent, allowing you to build your character in a new way

How Much Does it Cost to Respec Your Character

Resetting your skill points can be done at any Quick-Change machine. It will cost you a small fee however, relative to your character's level. This means that the more skill points you have spent, the more you’ll pay, though it’s usually fairly inexpensive relative to the wealth you’ve amassed while playing.

There are many reasons why you may want to respec your character. Ultimately, if you find yourself not using a specific skill or ability, you’ll want to swap it out. Similarly, if you start playing with others and would like to run different builds to complement each other, Respec options can be very useful.
