5 things we should know before Battleborn Release

Hey Battleborn Community,

I’m working on a little project at home and in need of some information. So the question is If you had a friend that was going to purchase battleborn next week, What would be the five things you would want him/her to know before the game is release?

Feel free to simply list things if you like.


Finished my YouTube project ! its based on the list. Thanks everyone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0sk6SA3oxw

This one took me and my friends a while to figure out

-Walking over small crystal spawns instantly breaks and collects the shards.

Saved us so much time swinging at them. Also the general importance of shards as currency.


That skills with duration(i.e hailstorm, holotwin etc.) have a duration bar that is on the left an right of your crosshairs. It’s a little hard to see cos it blends in to the surroundings but its there.

1: I am their god and my word is absolute.
2: Give me all the shards, I need them more than you do.
3: Taking my kill is unforgivable and you will be severely punished.
4: The more times you die, the more times I shall smite thee on thine arse.
5: Queueing with me is more than a privilege, It is an honor, and you will worship me for even stooping to notice your request to play with me.

Those would probably be the 5 things I’d like them to know.


Make friends with a Miko. :mushroom:

  • All the characters are awesome. Even the ones you don’t think look very awesome are probably more fun to play than half the characters you’ve played in other games, and some will straight-up surprise you. Try them all.

  • Even if you don’t normally like PvE, try it. A game doesn’t take long, it’s near-constant action, it gets you loot for PvP, and the dialogue is freakin’ hilarious.

  • Even if you don’t normally like PvP, try it. A game doesn’t take long, it’s more about teamwork and objectives than mad twitch skills, two of the three game modes are PvE/PvP hybrids anyway, and the dialogue is freakin’ hilarious.

  • In PvE, stand on the glowing yellow pads with the foot icon above them. They bring you glory & treasure and while standing on them you are exponentially more attractive to a demographic of your preference.

  • In PvP, prioritize killing enemy robots & towers and protecting your own. They’re more important than you think they are, no matter how important you think they are.


THIS!!! Thank you, thats a great tip! Played CTT+Beta but had no clue :dizzy_face:

Thing #6: once you’ve played a few games and gained a basic working knowledge of the game, read this entire list of tips top-to-bottom, because you probably don’t know any of them yet.

Miko is a damage-machine and if the player handles her good she can be a resourcefull healer at the same time. I would not built up prejudices for characters that are so versatile :slight_smile:

My top 5…

  1. If it doesn’t change with full release… don’t give up on split screen, at first the map placement is awful… But you will get used to it.

  2. On that note, don’t under estimate the importance of the mini map, it shows you where you are, where your allies are, where the enemies are… It can (and IS!) useful, look at it.

  3. Shards, shards, shards… Turrets, turrets, turrets. (Matches)

  4. Shards, shards shards… Healing bot/turret bot… Whatever they are called, use them. (Storymode)

  5. I don’t care how much you have played Borderlands, this ISNT Borderlands, you can’t constantly respawn in storymode, so DONT go running in on enemies than expect someone to risk themselves to revive you.


I notice you called Miko a ‘she’ and was wondering the correct singular third-person pronoun would be?

Could be wrong but I think it’s ‘they’…

:smiley: I think “they” is perfect! I kept calling “her” a “she”, don´t even know why^^

Are you by any chance female in gender?.. This could be why you go for the ‘she’ option… Sometimes one links/connects more with a character of their own gender.
(I know I like to pretend I’m the character I play… Judge me as you will)

But if you are male, then ignore my above ramblings, haha.


Hehe, yeah I´m a girl^^ So you could be right that its a subconcious thing.

I do that too, but I play mostly male characters :smiley: (I can be a girl in reallife as much as I want, in virtul worlds I usually choose males…)
BB is the first game where my mainchar will be a fourarmed female^^ Just love Orendi, shes´s like me with to much coffee.
Overall GBX makes the best female characters.


Not to keep things off-topic (though aren’t we always? ;)), but quoting the official website:

"The last surviving bud of a planet-spanning fungal colony, the otherworldly Miko is regarded as a capable “combat botanist”, healing and protecting its allies while hurling poison-tipped kunai at pretty much everything else.“
"Miko’s primary attack hurls a barrage of poison-tipped Kunai, while its secondary activates a Healing Beam that restores health to target allies.”
