Well, I did. :slight_smile:

Was the first one on our team today to find out and the initial confusion about the progress bar when capturing a thrall soon turned into a huge smile on my face when someone else confirmed they got one too. :slight_smile:


Cool, cool… Uh… Can Toby have his railgun damage back too? Pwease…?



I’m so happy.

Love you, Gearbox!


This news has absolutely made my day and I offer my sincerest thanks to the people that made this happen :blush:! All I ask for now, is that Kelvin’s Micro Mist challenge is fixed so it tracks progress in the Bot modes.

@Jythri told us to thank “OopsiePoopsie” (whoever that is) for this fix :joy: Big huge thanks for anyone else involved in this very welcomed change – the perfect endgame for people to get the last elusive rewards. Just played 7 hours straight – literally through the night, no rest – with a boatload of wonderful people ranging from devs to remarkable community members and other familiar faces, and it was so much fun hanging out with everyone (despite the exhaustion this useless bag of meat generates).

Just really happy that I got to experience Battleborn as it was, from the start to the end, and I’m sincerely thankful for everyone for that priviledge. It has been simply an incredible journey, and today I made a lot of new, good memories to add to the pile. Kinda makes me feel humbled to look back and see how far we’ve come when this game was what connected us.

Thank you Gearbox for your stupendous and awe-inspiring labor of love, and thank you for the sharing the journey so closely with the players. :sparkling_heart:


Yes! Thank you GBX!

Looks like you’ll be able to obtain those ever elusive Supercharge titles now @Ashbweh.


It took a frackin’ year and a half, but you guys finally did it. Me and a friend did some 1v1 Capture matches (real talk: if you get a chance, try it) and were able to knock out some “Participate in Killing X Battleborn 5 Times” challenges. Good times. :heart:

Aside: Turns out Alani v Ambra is a mostly even match. Slightly in favor of Ambra unless Alani’s aim is on point. 6/4 Ambra from what I could tell.

Yeah on private :confused: Ah well, I guess I’m ready to start grinding tonight :stuck_out_tongue:


Confirmed as A Good Idea.

The only thing better than memes are dank memes.


If Toby gets his railgun back, Benedict gets his health back or his damage.

Wait, were those stealth-nerfed in the fall update as well?

I think the one before. I dunno. I might track down the notes for it. I complained about it a long while ago.

If Benedict gets his health or damage back, Thorn gets her arrow damage back.

If Thorn gets her arrow damage back,
Miko gets his movement speed back.

Rath wants his dreadwind back as well :kissing_heart:
