Who has beaten the story and what are your thoughts? Overall I enjoyed it. It was what I expected although some things bothered me about it.

I figured I'd make this thread because there is surprisingly no thoughts / complaint thread yet.



Keep spoilers in /spoiler

I just beat the story (Credits are rolling as I type), and man, I can't wait for the DLC's. I haven't had a game keep me so enthralled to stay up for days on end to play it in a long time but, I couldn't help it with this game.

Spoilers ahead, don't read them unless you have finished the game.

As soon as Lillith took off towards the moon, I nearly screamed, "You can't make me lose another character, not at the end like this!" Especially after she gave the ship to Ava.

When the credits started to roll and Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys started to play I was almost in tears because it was an amazing song to pair with the cutscene and comic style slide show that played along with the credits.

The weapon you get from her room is also very fun to use every once in a while.

I made sure to finish all the crew challenges and some of the rewards you get gave me a chuckle.
Baby Maker ++ from Claptrap and VR-0N1CA (Tediore)
Deadeye Bekah from Hammerlock (Jakobs)
Vicious Lyuda from Zer0 (Vladof)
And Finally
The Art of Stealth from Moxxi (Skin)

Hi 2 All,



U guys forget the crap Gbox had and has with copyrights (design+sound) + staff + ...etc.
Just with the guy who made clap's voice ....
They fired (or he left) the screenwriter of BDL 2.

Claptrap - useless (changed voice & design)
Lilith - design (had to kill her as well)
Maya - design (had to be gone, as ALL VH of BDL2)
Brick - useless 1 mission only
Tina - useless 1 mission only
Modecai - useless 1 mission only
Axton - gone
Salvy - gone
Krieg - gone except the echos (what for ...)
Gaige - gone
Zero - useless
Hammerlock - useless
Aurelia - had to kill for her to be gone (she was good in PreSQL)
Ava - useless whining little brat ... horrible design (bubble head, big teeth) what for. Except her little pet, Hermes.
How can lilith leave the crimson raiders to a teenager who does not know anything ...
Ava should be replaced by Hermes ... hahaha.
Somebody said on YouTube that we should have the option to blow her into outer space, like D xenomorph.
Hope for a futur DLC - "Kill D Whiner".

Tannis does nothing either as a siren ... why?

In short terms GBox should fire the scriptwriter and get back the one who wrote BDL2.
Looks like this game was written in a year or less.


Loot is really crapy.
Beat the game in VH mode and got only green crap + only 1 legendary with crapy stats.

Go look on Youtube comments about this crap-game.

Not even close to BDL2.
Troy could have been enough, he is not soo bad.
He is D hardest boss to beat in Solo.
The voice of Tyreen is really annoying, she has like 2 animated poses.
with all her powers she does nothing.
Final boss' named Destroyer - wow, how original.
Of course not even close to the Warrior.
U can even climb on it during the fight .... what ? Climbing like in Dying light.

Nobody helps the VHunters even @ the end ....
In BDL2 before going to finish Jack all characters @ sanctuary give something to help with the fight.
Guns, shield, ...
In BDL3 only Hammerlock gives a gun. The others ... well nthing.
Have the impression that this game was written in a week.
As far as 3d goes, really simplist guys.
Those eridien statues are done in like 2 minutes ... no face nothing ...
What's with the RED-WEED all over the place (Nekrotefeyo) ... that's martian NOT eridien ...
Lilith has major rigging/skinning issues (cluster sticking to the ground) in Nekrotefeyo.
At one time she even dissapears ... only her voice stays.
That was done by first week students or what ... (gonna have to start payin' people GBox)
Just ditch the screenwriter GBox.
This game's story Sux Big Time.
Vault hunters are not even present in cut-scenes.
Sirens loose their importance ... like Amara.
Secondary characters (bandits ... etc) don't say funny stuff.
Bosses are not so good as in BDL2.

Gameplay is OK -- to play with dialogue volume at 0.

@ the end D story kills the game.

Really big dissapointment 4 me anyway.

The guy who voiced Claptrap will never come back to Gbox, he had a very public and kind of nasty split from the company Ceo.

Well ... unfortunately I did ALL side missions ... for not much more.

Except, Yeah BALEX (Ice-T), which was great stuff.

But that sums it up.

I'm kind of with you.. I enjoyed it but I'm conflicted. I hate what they did to Aurelia, they made her look 100 years old and her boss fight was so easy for how good she was on Pre Sequel.. I also wish we saw Gaige, Krieg, Salvador, etc. atleast in one scene. We only got Zero and Maya from Bl2. The last boss fights were also pretty easy.. even on the hardest difficulty. Idk why we have no raid bosses yet just replayable story bosses..?

The biggest thing with this game that has me pissed off right now is how they announced there will be NO DlC characters.. I will skip the next game if they do that. How can Bl3 have less content than Bl2?

I enjoyed it but I don't think I enjoyed it enough to play through it multiple times. Thought it was clever how they made it seem like it was at the end but it wasn't.

While I did enjoy the game and the other Borderland games, I bought the game with full intentions to mod the sh*t out of it. So for me the fun still hasn’t truly started but we’re getting there.

I personally love this game, Yea the story wasn't amazing and main Bad guys were lack luster and more of an annoyance then anything my first play through had chills for any of the big moments and i have played through the story no 5 times with my different characters and honestly my biggest complaint with the story is not being able to skip cu scenes after playing through the first time. If we are to compare yea BL2 had a better story but lets be real in the grand scheme of things bl2 had a **** story too so i didn't expect a whole lot(yes handsome jack is one of the best bad guys of all time) but story was still not that compelling, In my opinion other then the story (which isn't the part you play the most when playing bl anyway), BL3 is head and tails better then BL2 in every conceivable way, the general Quality of life improvements alone make me a very happy Vault hunter. Anyway i get all of your opinions but ill be over here putting hundreds and hundreds of hours into my crispy characters :smile: and very happy to do it, The long wait was well worth it in my opinion im just glad they didnt ruin the formula.

you beat the whole game in VH and only got one legendary???? how???? did you do the typhon caches and stuff? I had so many legendaries and flavor-text blues that even after I maxed out bank space and backpack space I still couldn't hold it all and had to keep passing it off to other characters... I thought legendaries dropped MUCH more often than in BL2.

I agree with this completely, How hahahh if anything i thought the loot drops were far to high before the patches, I easily had half to 3/4th of my backpack full of legendaries before completing the story the first time around. you must have horrendous luck my friend

Yeah, NOT all legendaries are good in fact about 50% of them are wotrhless in VH or any mayhem mode.
Many times I got green stuff way better than orange.
Guuess that is for PS4 dudes like me.
On PC droprates R really cool.
Probably will switch to PC soon .... hahaha :smile:

I'm playing on ps4 also got lots of legendary and flavor text uniques, I also did every side mission attempted to light up the whole map and did all the typhon caches tho idk if you put that much effort in it's just the completionist in me. I didnt say all the legendaries were good only that I couldnt believe you only got one legendary the whole game. Some legendaries are indeed not very useful, I got lucky picking up an incendiary rowans call early on which was absolutely beast for amara. A lot of times I found myself finding legendaries far below my level which was irritating at times, but overall I still was able to find decent loot to try out, and then once I hit level cap everything started dropping at 50 so that was nice.

The story is good but basic, and suffers from our times, the humor is less provoking, and the characters put forward respect a current know-how.
