What is BAMF Time ? – Borderlands 2 VR

A new feature in Borderlands 2 VR is BadAss Mega Fun Time, or BAMF Time, this gameplay mechanic lets you slow down time. While BAMF time is active you can dodge bullets and use your action skill to wreck your opponents. BAMF Time itself kinda works like a second action skill. It has its own cooldown timer, its icon is displayed above your health bar, next to the main action skill. BAMF time can be also be upgraded like the main action skill by selecting skills in the skill tree.

BadAss Mega Fun Time (BAMF Time) has been added to Borderlands 2 VR to enhance your VR experience. This new gameplay mechanic gives you control over the game during heated battles as shootouts in a first-person game can be overwhelming.

BAMF Time does not only make Borderlands 2 a fun and accessible Virtual Reality experience it also provides new ways to play the game as this skill is integrated with other gameplay mechanics.

Skill Tree Changes

You can power up your BAMF Time skill by picking upgrades in your skill trees. Each of the skill trees contains 1 altered skill that includes a new BAMF time buff. Sidenote, Maya’s co-op skill is now focused around herself as Borderlands 2 VR doesn’t feature co-op play.
