So been playing Borderlands 3 some, its actually one of my fav in the series so far. However i’m one of the people who even before it launched was hoping a 3rd person mode would be added to this games.
I know its not a popular idea and most people on here are to dead set on keeping it 1st person, which brings me to the idea, one that might please everyone.
What if Gearbox added the different melee weapons you see in the game as actual weapons for our characters? And when you equip them your put into 3rd person?
That way it stays a 1st person shooter with the option of a 3rd person style. Don’t wanna use 3rd person? Just don’t equip the melee weapons.
This is basically the same style Destiny took in order to appeal not just to 1st person fans but draw in 3rd person as well. And for the most part it worked, their number went up.
Not to mention in a mostly co-op style game like Boarderlands the whole “You can peek around corners” argument is nulled out since the main focus is to play with players rather then against.
I personally feel this would not only make 3rd person players happy and draw them to the game but we could finally get to use weapons like Zero’s sword, or the Maniac’s maces.
Please Gearbox, people have even gone so far as to mod the past Borderlands games to have 3rd person. The demand is there, and its not as small as people here claim it to be.
Please consider this.
