Square Enix and Avalanche Studios released their final DLC pack of the Air, Land & Sea Expansion Pass for Just Cause 3.
The DLC is called Bavarium Sea Heist and in it, you will go against the private army The Black Hand who is working for the Eden Corporation at the coast of West Medici.
The players will use Rico and the new rocket boat, the ‘Loochador’ to search Eden Research stations and penetrate a base called Stingray looking for a weapon created by Eden Corporation. The new rocket boat comes with multi-lock missile launchers, mini guns, and booster engines and it aids in the navigation of the players.
The weapon created by Eden Corporation is a deadly lightning gun called Eden Spark which produces electrical blasts that create lightning storms on the enemies and causing damage to the surroundings of the target. The weapon will have upgrades, but there has not been specified yet.
The Bavarium Sea Heist DLC will come with new maps, missions and arms beside the Eden Spark. A challenge called Boat Invader would give the player power-ups to modify the Eden Spark.

Bavarium Sea Heist review
According to a report from Destructoid, the new lightning gun a is a cool addition to the weapon arsenal, but it lacks originality in the story as it goes like the previous two games.
He also talks about how the players can obtain the Eden Spark through the rebel drop system almost immediately, which makes the story of the DLC unnecessary as it is supposed to be about gaining the gun after some missions.
This makes weird the moment when Rico celebrates at the point of the story when he is meant to obtain the weapon when the player has been using it for quite a while.
After the disappointments, he does not recommend the Season Pass to anyone as it gives the same gameplay to all of the three stories and the gear and weapons provided are so powerful it makes the game too easy.
