Battleborn Gets A New Competitive Multiplayer Mode

by Douglas DeLong on Jun 22, 2017 at 12:01 PM

Supercharge is a fast-paced 3v3 mode for Battleborn, played on all-new maps, and it will be available later today.

The new mode plays like a mix between Meltdown and Capture. The smaller team size requires players to closely coordinate as they try to escort their minions through gates for points, while simultaneously trying to maintain control of a capture point that "supercharges" their minions. Supercharge will have its own challenges for players to complete that will net them more titles, experience, and credits. 

If you want to give it a try, you don't have much longer to wait. Supercharge goes live at 12 p.m. PT.


Our Take:
We weren't huge fans of Battleborn when it first launched, but Gearbox has continued to work on improving the game and adding more content in the time since. Now that most of the game is accessible for free it may be worth giving this new mode a look.
