June 11, 2019 During AMD’s showcase at E3, we got a deeper look at Moze and Iron Bear in action alongside a new planet called Athenas.
Moze the Gunner is the next addition to Borderlands 3’s eclectic rabble of Vault Hunters. She doesn’t come alone, and a big ol’ mech called Iron Bear summons to her side at a moments notice – think of D.Va from Overwatch, but Mad Max style.
We caught a brief glimpse of the pair in action during an E3 trailer but got a more fleshed out view during AMD’s hardware showcase. Also on show was a new planet called Athenas, which is a more vibrant planet with punchy pink tones and what appears to be Japanese-influenced architecture. If you would like to see for yourself, however, check out the video below from AMD’s conference and at the one hour and eight minutes mark.
Thanks to YouTuber Ki11er Six, however, we also have a more in-depth idea of what her skill trees will entail. All three of Moze’s skill trees mainly revolve around her mech, Iron Bear. Her first set-up is called Shield of Retribution, and its primary Action Skill is called Railgun. This move adds a, well, railgun to Iron Bear that fires high-velocity projectiles that deal shock damage.
Bottomless Mags is the next class set-up, and it comes with an Action Skill called Minigun. The Minigun can outputs loads of damage in no time at all, but keep in mind that it’ll overheat if you fire for too long. If the gun does overheat, it won’t be usable for a few seconds.
Finally, we have the Demolition Woman skill tree, which comes with the Action Skill V-35 Grenade Launcher. The weapon is semi-automatic, but do keep in mind that the grenades it fires are unaffected by mods.
Interestingly, according to Ki11er Six, you can also mix-and-match these main perks as you can assign two at a time to Iron Bear – one for each arm. You can check out his video below for a look at Moze’s skill-tree.
Vaulted: the Borderlands 3 release date is coming soon
We’ll be covering plenty more from E3 2019 as the week goes on. We’re both on the ground in Los Angeles and covering conferences from our UK office, so stick around for the latest news.
