In this week’s Battleplan, we’re highlighting not only the community and some of the cool things that you guys do, but also a few of the more popular community hubs (like the forums)! Think of this thread as a hybrid – Community Badass meets a rundown of some recent community coolness. With you guys, there’s always lots to see. Let’s start off with listing a few of the best hotspots to keep up the community:
The first would obviously be here – our official forums! As you all know, the forums are a great place to get the pulse of the community. There’s never a shortage of lively conversation here and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The forums is a great place to chat about the “nitty-gritty” aspects of Battleborn like tactics, builds, and strategies. As with other Gearbox games of the past, the community as amassed a wealth of knowledge on the game in a very short period of time and the forums is a perfect place to see that knowledge in action!
The Battleborn subreddit - r/Battleborn is also an awesome place to go if you’re looking for some great community interaction. r/Battleborn serves as the go-to destination for all kinds of great content including artwork, in-depth discussion, and more. Not only that, but the subreddit is a great place to get involved in community tournaments as well.
DeviantArt.com is a great avenue for checking out community made artwork. As mentioned in the Battleplan, many of the community’s most talented artists use DeviantArt to showcase their work. Many times, we’ll share artwork that we find on DeviantArt w/ the Gearbox team by putting it up on monitors throughout the studio.
So, now that you know a few places that you can go to find great community content, let’s showcase a few things that we’ve come across recently that really caught our eye. Some of these creations you may have seen before and some may be new to you, but either way, you guys do some pretty awesome stuff:

Again, these are just a few examples of some of the awesome things that the Battleborn community creates. What’s harder to quantify and show examples of are the conversations that take place on a daily basis. To see this in action, visit one of the community hubs we’ve listed above (or just stay put here on the forums). Thank you all for being a great community and for your support and we hope you’ve enjoyed this little peek into the Battleborn community!
