Today Gearbox Software and 2K Games proudly present 3 new Battleborn heroes to the world. These are Whiskey Foxtrot, Kelvin and Shayne & Aurox. But before i go in-depth on these i have to say that GBX & 2K are on a roll these few weeks. Starting 2016 they announced Deande & Ghalt and early February they announced Attikus & Galilea. So much exciting new content but also quality content with in-depth backstory and awesome new skill videos.
After all my speculation he finally get revealed and i was nowhere close with any of my predictions hahaha. I looked to deep into finding clues that the obvious clue was right in-front of me. The piece of gear was part of the Rogue faction and so is Whiskey Foxtrot. He is a rogue mercenary equipped with an blade and a machine gun. In my theories i first thought Whiskey Foxtrot was going to be Peacekeeper do to the similarity with Oscar Mike’s name. They are both code words for their corresponding first letter. But if we look close to the image we see that Whiskey Foxtrot is wearing a similar helmet as Oscar Mike. Because Oscar Mike is a clone soldier does this mean Whiskey Foxtrot is a clone soldier that has gone “Rogue” or was this simply a trophy in one of his battles? Well it turns out that Whiskey Foxtrot is a first batch of “Mike” clones but there is something weird about them. All his gear is reversed engineered. Whiskey Foxtrot main weapon is a homemade assault rifle and he uses sticky bombs and scrap cannon.

Shayne & Aurox
Shayne is a Rogue punk who was inadvertently bound to the creature Aurox. With this hero i get a bit of an Gaige & Deathtrap vibe from Borderlands 2. Here the giant machine protected a smaller character with death rays and furious claws. It looks like those claws made a return in Battleborn. Shayne’s main weapon is Aurox which is also her shield. Aurox will deal melee damage and can cloak Shayne for a devastating blow. You don’t want these two to catch you as they are a tag team to be feared.

Shayne & Aurox Lets play with GhostRobo
Kelvin, is colony of microorganisms attached to an ice golem. He got saved by Miko and now he fights with the Eldrid to preserve what’s left of the cosmos. Kelvin is a melee character and he is a defender type a real juggernaut. Because every time you chomp you get a bit of extra health. So at the end of a match you will have a lot of life points on your character. Kelvin is also able to control the battlefield by creating a big ice wall. This stuns enemies, but also creates a barrier that keeps enemies out. This could be a very usefull tool in multiplayer to keep the enemy battleborn from grouping up.
