Alani, a member of the Eldrid faction who was raised as a healer, but forced to be a warrior, and is all that remains of her order after Rendain’s Jennerit Imperium stole the oceans from her world. As a warrior from a planet with vast seas, Alani’s attacks and abilities revolve around her power to control water to dish out pain, or heal her fellow Battleborn.
Precise. Deadly. Obsessively hygienic.
Beatrix has a fondness, if not obsession, with manipulating living creatures. With her prosthetic syringe-arm, she can inject enemies at range, spreading debilitating debuffs and disease across the battlefield. A scientist at artificial-heart, Beatrix is ready to apply a lethal dose of Jennerit intellect and ruthlessness straight to Rendain.
Ernest, like his fellow Aviants Toby and Benedict, loves blowing stuff up. But instead of glory and vengeance like his feathren (feathered brethren, just let me have this), he fights for honor and duty to the soldiers at his side. Ernest is one of the UPR’s premiere demolitions experts and a brilliant tactician known for his “outside the box” approach, exploiting foes’ weaknesses with well-placed, well-timed explosive ordnance.
Evildoers beware! Kid Ultra is on patrol and ready to defend the universe from pesky, star-sucking, interdimensional jackholes. Hardwired to lend a helping hand, Kid Ultra is the pinnacle of support technology, buffing and healing teammates while subduing enemies. Let’s just hope this LLC technology is a bit more stable than some other nihilistic robots we know.
Pendles is literally a cold-blooded killer. Originally from the ocean world of Akopos, Pendles did as most adolescent Roa do and left home to experience galactic cultures, and enjoyed murdering those cultures so much that he never went back. Upon finding out that people would actually pay him for his hobby, he became a freelance assassin for anyone with even the smallest of grievances. Don’t let his sweet pair of sneakers fool you. This assassin will sneak up behind you, poison you, eviscerate you with dual kamas, then slink away again in a blink of his one remaining eye. Despite misgivings toward his moral code, Ghalt eventually decided that it would be more dangerous to have him off the team than on.
5 Story Operations
The story operations are new playable missions that take place after the missions of the main game. The story operations work a bit differently than the original mission of the game. The story of each operation is being told over the course of 10 playthroughs. You can compare it to a Netflix series, In each playthrough, you will get an episode of the season. So over the course of 10 playthroughs, you will have learned the full story while still getting a satisfying ending and a good chunk of story each time you play a story operation.
Each playthrough is made interesting because the gameplay of each session is altered by the inclusion of random events that occur throughout the missions. Also, the difficulty scales based on your performance. By completing objectives and challenges your ops points will stack. The more ops points you have, the harder the game will get. You will also get additional ops points by completing a playthrough.
In each story operation, you will be able to earn new skins, taunts, and titles.
