October Patch Update – Battleborn Live Stream

Thursday 29 September Gearbox Software did one of their live streams again and this day’s topic was the upcoming October Patch. As mentioned during the beginning of the stream some of the info was reported earlier on this website. While some of those things weren’t set in stone back then, it looks like a lot of that is coming to the game. Joe (Community Manager), Randy Varnell (Creative Director) & Grant Kao (Balance Designer) give some additional info and add context as to why these changes are made. Here are some of the changes that are coming on October 13 :
