2K has announced a contest for its upcoming team-based shooter, Battleborn, that will allow its winner to have their own taunt animated to then be included in the game. This is not going to end well.
Starting today and ending on September 10, fans need to submit a short video of themselves performing an original taunt for any of the announced Battleborn characters. The video needs to be no longer than 30 seconds and can be uploaded on YouTube, Vine, or Instagram and you’ll need to start it by clearly indicating what character the taunt is for.
Once you’re done, post your video in a tweet to @Battleborn and include #IAmBattleborn and #Contest in your tweet. Facebook users can enter by posting their video as a response to the contest announcement post.
Winners will be chosen based on creativity, originality, and presentation that captures the essence of the Battleborn characters. The winner will not only have their taunt included in the game, bnut they’ll also score a copy of the game on the platform of their choice and a framed poster signed by the development team.
