Thanks to various Twitter replies from Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford (and one from managing producer of narrative Randy Varnell) 13 new details about Borderlands 3 have been revealed.
The majority of these details were collected by Reddit user BooleanBarman in a comprehensive thread. One of the biggest pieces of news is that the Slag effect won’t be carried over to Borderlands 3, and will instead be replaced by a similar nuclear radiation-like Elemental effect. “We replaced it with something that actually makes a little sense. The new ‘element’ damage type, which is like a nuclear radiation effect, has a similar effect to slag (increased vulnerability by those affected) and also has a damage-over-time component.”
