New Battleborn hotfixes bring a few characters down to earth

Plus you've got a code for some free skins

Gearbox unveiled the first newsletter they are calling Battleborn Battleplan in an effort to keep their community informed of the changes to the game. One of the advantages to being always online, is that a developer can easily upload small fixes to their servers instantly, which Gearbox has done with Battleborn. This week, the hotfix focused on three characters who are seemingly a tad over powered. Here are the official details.

  • Reduced Galilea’s Great Sword damage by 18%
  • Reduced Shield Throw damage by 33%
  • Reduced the movement speed bonus of Miko’s level 7 Left Helix Augment, Fight or Flight, to 15% and its duration to 2s
  • Reduced the healing effect of Biosynthesis by 25%
  • Reduced ISIC’s base health by 20%
  • Reduced Rotating Wards’ block strength by 50%
  • Reduced Watchful Wards’ bonus by 40%
Other Notes:
  • Adjusted skill-based matchmaking ranges to speed up matchmaking times
  • Fixed a minor audio issue on the Meltdown map, Paradise
  • Changed all Faction loot packs to unlock at level 15
  • Reduced the Silver and Gold medal requirements for each medal in the story mission “The Archive” by 20%
  • Doubled the health of stationary defense objectives in story mode
  • Made performance improvements on the multiplayer maps Echelon and Coldsnap
