A Borderlands 2 modder has found a hidden rarity within the sport which may trace at a characteristic in Borderlands 3.- Advertisement -
Modder CaptainKoby_ was combing by the latest 4K patch for Borderlands 2 when he found a brand new weapon rarity tier generally known as “Rainbow.” While the modder did not disclose his “difficult” technique of discovering this weapon rarity, he did submit an image of a rainbow weapon that he discovered. The weapon itself does not seem like statistically completely different from one other weapon that exists within the sport, but it surely’s definitely of a tier classification that’s in any other case unavailable within the base sport.
So what’s the level of Rainbow tier gadgets? It’s actually exhausting to say with certainty at the moment. According to the modder, this tier will not be used within the sport’s base code, which appears to counsel it was by no means supposed for launch in Borderlands 2. However, CaptainKoby_ does acknowledge that the very fact it does exist within the base code implies that a subsequent replace to the sport may push it reside.
Actually, the most well-liked concept in the intervening time is that this new tier of weapons might trace at a Borderlands 3 characteristic. Currently, Rainbow tier (which might be the sport’s ninth tier of weapons) does not alter a gun’s harm, but it surely does alter its look. Could or not it’s that rainbow tier weapons in Borderlands Three can be uncommon pores and skin variants of different weapons within the sport, or will Rainbow merely be an added tier meant to characterize probably the most highly effective (and rarest) weapons within the sport?
It’s additionally doable that this code will finally present itself within the type of a Borderlands 2 characteristic. If that’s the case, then we’re unsure why this characteristic would not have been made obtainable on the time of the Borderlands 2 4K replace except it has one thing to do with the launch of Borderlands 3.
Then once more, perhaps that is nothing greater than a chunk of deserted code that so occurred to have been buried deep inside the patch as a leftover of an outdated thought. We ought to know for certain when Borderlands 3 launches later this yr.
