Who are the Borderlands 3 characters? Gearbox has revealed the roster of playable Borderlands 3 characters for its upcoming looter shooter, but who else can we expect to see when the Sanctuary sets sail from Pandora and the other Borderlands 3 planets. From Claptrap to Moxxi and even the false promise of Handsome Jack (he really is dead) – the gang are uniting to bring down the Calypso twins.
Borderlands 3 will tackle the uprising of streamer siblings Troy and Tyreen Calypso, and their army of psycho fans poised to fight a battle against Pandora’s corporations. They have a new army, called The Children of the Vault (COV), which has been turned into an exciting new Borderlands 3 weapon class and seems to pivot on, and parody, the power and responsibility that real-life streamers have.
With the villains and their marauding psycho army in place, what other Borderlands 3 characters will be braving the battle against the Calypso twins? We’ve listed all the new Borderlands 3 confirmed and playable characters, including the return of a few favourites.
Borderlands 3 confirmed characters
Leading the uprising to fight the good fight, Lilith will be reprising her role as the no-nonsense siren and she’s come a long way since the initial reveal trailer, which saw her crawling across the floor without her signature tattoos.
Joining Lilith are the below confirmed Borderlands 3 characters that feature throughout the launch trailer.
- Tiny Tina
Borderlands 3 playable characters
There are four new Vault Hunters available in Borderlands 3 as playable characters, with the news an older Tiny Tina is confirmed to have a combat role alongside them at some point in the game. The launch trailer also showed us Brick and Mordecai, who appear as playable characters in Borderlands and NPCs in Borderlands 2 and could possibly be involved in combat.
The new Borderlands 3 playable characters include FL4K (Beastmaster), Amara (Siren), Moze (Gunner) and Zane (Operative). We’ve already taken a look at the Borderlands 3 Vault Hunters and the best Borderlands 3 builds based on their individual skill trees, and Gearbox has already created an in-depth Borderlands 3 cosplay guide.
The Borderlands 3 release date is fast approaching and if you’re excited by the new Borderlands 3 characters and hopeful new Vault Hunters, then this might tickle your fancy.
