Gearbox’s upcoming first-person shooter Battleborn is set for a release in the Spring of next year, making it the first intellectual property created by the Borderlands developer since 2009. IGN First has just released a new video that shows off a couple of new characters that you can check out via the images below.
The new characters are named Ghalt and Deande, and they serve as the power and stealth characters, respectively. Scroll down for a breakdown of each character’s weapons and abilities.
Weapon: UPR M8-R Revolver Shotgun
- Ghalt’s customized UPR shotgun deals incredible damage at short range, but is weaker at greater distances. Holding LT aims down sight for more precise shots.

Skill 1: The Hook
- Fire out an energy hook that pulls enemies to you.

Ultimate: Dual Wield
- Ghalt equips a second shotgun, doubling his damage output for 10 seconds.
Weapon: Tessurim War Fans
- Deande’s primary melee combo (RT) strings a series of rapid melee strikes, while her secondary attack (LT) hurls her fans at foes for ranged damage.
Passive: The Element of Surprise
