A dedicated Borderlands 3 fan has shared their jaw-dropping recreation of non-playable character Mad Moxxi in Minecraft.

Mad Moxxi first featured in 2012’s Borderlands 2, and offers players many of their missions as they explore Pandora. She is known for her trademark top hat and tip jar, as well as the dark, gothic make-up.

Since Borderlands 3 released, Mad Moxxi has established herself as a fan favorite to cosplay. While cosplaying is one way of honoring her, one Redditor has switched up the game by flawlessly recreating her in Minecraft.

On May 13, Borderlands 3 fan u/nipole99 shared their incredible take on Mad Moxxi, recreated in acclaimed sandbox game Minecraft. “She’s finished! I present to you… Moxxi, in Minecraft!”

The attached image is truly jaw-dropping: Moxxi has been perfectly recreated in Minecraft, a game with distinctly different aesthetics to Borderlands 3.

The Redditor also provided a brief summary of how they managed the design, explaining: “I use Pixel Stitch to essentially get my desired image into a grid, and then build it in sections. I kinda create my own colour scheme as I go, which is… Painful”.

While the final result is undoubtedly awesome, the amount of work the Redditor went into should not be underestimated. They shared multiple images of the creation in progress, reaffirming just how long it must have taken to perfect.

The creation reaffirms the amount of time and effort fans will put into recreating their favorite video game characters, whether it’s via cosplay or an entirely different altogether.

Rainbow Six: Siege is hitting the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles on December 1. If you’re looking to make the jump, here’s exactly what you need to do to upgrade. The best part is, it’s totally free.

Every title is trying to make the jump to the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X and S consoles. The next generation is here ⁠— just in time for Christmas ⁠— and while grabbing some new games is always high on the list, old favorites shouldn’t be left behind.

If you’ve picked up a copy of Rainbow Six: Siege for the PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll be able to make the jump to the next-gen consoles on December 1. Here’s how you can upgrade.

If you own a copy of Rainbow Six on PS4 or Xbox One, you can upgrade to the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles for free ⁠— providing that you upgrade to a console in the same family.

That means the upgrade won’t work if you go from the Xbox One to PS5, or the PS4 to the Xbox Series X. Also, if you own a physical version of Rainbow Six, you won’t be able to transfer to discless consoles.

From there, it’s as simple as linking your console to Ubisoft Connect, downloading the game again, and jumping right into the action. Here’s a full step by step list of what you need to do.

  1. Link your Ubisoft Connect account to your Xbox or PlayStation account here.
  2. Log onto your console and download Rainbow Six Siege (or insert your physical disc).
  3. Launch the game.

Rainbow Six cross-play and cross-progression confirmed

Once you upgrade your console, you won’t have to start from scratch. Ubisoft have confirmed that Rainbow Six will not only have cross-progression, but also cross-play between console generations.

You’ll keep all your progress, including Operators, in-game items, stats, and more, and you’ll also be able to play with friends if they don’t make the jump to next-gen just yet.

However, cross-play and cross-progression won’t be coming to PC in the near future. While Ubisoft aims on implementing it for the PS5 and Xbox Series X down the line, they will not be available on launch.
