Breakdown of the Mouthpiece Speakers
Joshua Davidson is a Senior Sound Designer at Gearbox Software. He has worked on Borderlands 1-3, Battleborn, Red Faction: Guerrilla, and Saints Row 2. In this video, Joshua is breaking down the signature sound of Mouthpiece, which is the exploding speakers. Mouthpiece is one of the first Boss battles in Borderlands 3. You will encounter him at the Holy Broadcast Center. The arena in which you fight him is filled with giant speakers that will emit a blast every now and then. These blasts will send out a shockwave and will send you as a player back as they break through your shield. To prepare you for this boss fight you will encounter a few of these speakers along your way there.
