Borderlands 3 debut trailer confirms over 1 billion weapons

The world premiere trailer for Borderlands 3 showed off a lot of gameplay, but closed with the real zinger: Over 1 billion weapons. And a mech?


Long-awaited and highly anticipated, Gearbox Software has finally officially introduced Borderlands to the world. During the PAX East 2019 panel, Gearbox Software kicked off the first day of the event with the world premiere debut gameplay trailer for Borderlands 3.

The trailer not only shared that over one billion guns will be in Borderlands 3, but it also followed that up with a quick shot of a giant mech. We don't know if it will be pilotable, if it's tied to one of the Vault Hunters, or if it's just an evolution of the mech enemies from the previous games, but one could hope so. Watch the full trailer above.

Just in case you missed the story from a while ago, one of those weapons out of over one billion could be Elon Musk's flamethrower produced by The Boring Company. This would be an intriguing crossover with the real world, but maybe Gearbox could initiative crossovers with other properties published by the company or from other studios. Share your ideas and tell us what weapons from other fictional worlds or real-life entities you'd like to see in Borderlands 3.
