You earn extra points for killing the Target, but in doing so you become the new Target.

    Farewell Battleborn

    Servers for Battleborn have been shut down forever.

    You can't say you didn't see this one coming. The servers for Battleborn have been shut down for good. The final day of the game being available to play was January 31, 2021. Gearbox sent the game out not with a bang, but with a whimper.

    The final update for the game came all the way back in October 2017. We knew about the server shut down as early as November 2019. Last night, the plug was pulled from the servers and...

    Battleborn Servers to Shut Down in January 2021

    I bet you thought this game shut down years ago.

    The good news is that Battleborn isn't dead. Who knew, right? The bad news is that it will be once January 2021 rolls around. 2K announced via Twitter that they will be deactivating the servers for Battleborn in a little over a year from now.

    They also pulled the game from every digital storefront they could. I'm sure the millions of you that were still on the fence about picking it up for a year full of fun and merriment...

Some of these videos are so in-depth that they analyze everything from how the particular skin fits the hero’s backstory to the color palette.
