An Update to Battleborn is Rolling Out Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Hey everyone!

A new update for Battleborn is rolling out for all platforms tomorrow, October 19th, at 12pm PT/3pm ET!

The update includes a ton of new content, including:

  • 6 Borderlands-themed skins featuring Alani as Maya, Caldarius as Maliwan, El Dragón as a Psycho, ISIC as Claptrap, Orendi as Tiny Tina, and Rath as Zer0!
  • 60 new Color Skins
  • 10 new Taunts
  • 4 new Finisher Boosts

Additionally, the team has implemented a variety of in-game updates and bug fixes, including a subtle but far-reaching change to the way in which skills grow throughout a match. Many of these updates were tested by members of the community, plus some of our favorite tournament teams! Their help was instrumental in making the game stronger and more balanced!

Check out the update notes for a full list of changes!


If you received a code at PAX West for a free set of Borderlands-themed Battleborn skins, your skins should appear in Command upon completion of the update.

If you missed out on a chance to redeem your PAX West code, don’t worry! You now have until November 1st to do so! Go to gearboxsoftware.com/pax_west_2017 to redeem the code on your giveaway card. You’ll receive a SHiFT code for the platform of your choice, which you can redeem by going to the SHiFT menu under “Extras”.

If your skins don’t appear in Command, or you have any issues redeeming the code, don’t worry – our Support team will be happy to assist you via http://support.gearboxsoftware.com

Well, I should’ve expected it, but it’s depressing that the story content will remain relying on shoddy servers :confused:

I’m rather torn…

On the one hand I’m happy we finally got a release date (and so soon).

On the other hand, I’m somewhat dissapointed by the lack of balance changes. Was looking forward to an overhaul to the meta :confused:

I didn’t see anything in the patch notes about Kelvin’s “Micro Macro Mist Me” challenge now being doable in Bots Battle!?
If this has not been fixed, I’m really not happy about it… goodbye forever 100% Battleborn completion, we would have been so happy together. :sob:

Actually, most importantly, my Holotwin will now have cat ears. That’s double the adorable for those of you keeping track at home. And nobody messed with my Deande in any negative way. Nemo wins this round.

Thanks for the release date.

@MereAtGBX Any word you can give us on how to obtain the 60 new color skins? I’m assuming since they are new colors they are not premium like the Borderlands ones.

Oh. Is that… Really it? There’s no balance changes? Nothing?

You and I both know they are. Which means they are of course unobtainable.

how do i read the update notes? the link leads to a rather confusing page :\

I’m im denial of this possibility and desperately hope they’re tied to time spent on the characters or matches played on them (counting both PvE & PvP).

The update notes link is broken, here is the working link:

Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that Shaurox was fixed, but nothing on Orendi’s Paradigm Shift? :cry:
