Potential Action Skill and Ability predictions for Borderlands 3

Dual wielding - I suspect we’ll have this again. If limited to a certain guntype like Nisha’s then perhaps SMGs will have a turn. Perhaps a trinity/neo influenced class.

Time bending - Maybe we can have a class that slows down enemy and enemy projectile movement within a sphere around the player or some artifact. All other players would see this. Could be a decent siren ability.

Teleportation - certainly possible, probably within certain limits (where you’ve been)

Anyone else have any thought on what we might see? What do you think?

Also, gearbox. You can use any ideas I post on your forum. I claim no rights to them. :slight_smile:

Continuing the discussion from Borderlands 3 confirmed!:


Multiple burds!


I think this could be a fantastic Siren ability! I would like to see a male Siren, unless it was spoken in BL2 that they are always female, I think they could make a male look like a BAMF

A swarm action skill could be pretty cool, like mini ROBOT BEES and they could spread to other foes if they are in proximity!

Corrosive-based skill tree. I’ve been waiting for one since Ceraunic Storm was unveiled.



Bees and Time Bending sound awesome.

Nano robot bees. Nano swarm.

What about time-bending bees?

edit: after reading this whole thread, maybe a swarm of time-bending nano robot bees is better

Oh man, was it in Bioshock 2 were you could combine Bees with the Tornado Thing to be a freeeken BEENADO?! Beenado would totally be a capstone skill…

I think it was mentioned in either BL1 or BL2 that only females could be Sirens. That may be my bad memory but i remember it from somewhere.

Mordecai Assassin build was a precursor. I want to see corrosion retake it’s badass status from the original, and would be so thrilled to see a class that really showcased this. I’ve been learndeding from skul and I can say that acid is no joke, a strong acid can turn a dude into mush pretty quick. Plus, green is the best color.

What about a transgender Siren? GBX has been including many homosexual characters (though no playable ones yet… Axton’s bisexuality was a retcon of a technical error, so I don’t count it). Transsexual is also a part of LGBT, and it would be an interesting way to work in a male siren, which I’m not pining for, but it would be cool to see.

EDIT: Sorry for double post

A character with living armor as a action skill that talks. Maybe eridian, idk. It could maybe take on either a aggresive or defensive role. Nother one would be a character would specialize in e-tech weaponry. You know we saw e-tech weapons in BL2, how about some shields?’ A eridium shield thatd say benefit your skills in one way or another. A dual wielding melee character that can be optional, one or two with two she gets way more buffs.

7:47-8:47 in this video is completely relevant to all of this.


We need and I want a character with a bow, a cyber bow!


See I couldn’t remember!

Yeah the transgender siren would be very interesting but I don’t know how they would pull that off and how many people are freaked out by that?
