Continuing the series that started earlier this week, Game Informer has a look at three more of Battleborn’s characters — Thorn, Montana, and Reyna.
Just like last time, these profiles each focus on the characters’ backstories, skills, and even some hands-on impressions of what they’re like in-game. There’s still one more set of characters to be revealed out of our initial batch of nine, so check back on Friday for some more new heroes!
Thorn is an archer trying to maintain her Eldrid ideology while surviving in the new world. She’s one of the fastest moving and highest jumping characters we’ve got, and she uses a bow that can shoot cursed arrows to mow down bad guys. Her ultimate ability allows her to call in a ghostly wolf that will tear any enemies to shreds.

Montana is a Peacekeeper soldier with a heart of gold who basically just wants everyone to have fun. He’s by far the biggest character in Battleborn so far, and totes a gigantic Gatling gun to match his massive frame. Montana’s slow and can’t really hide behind cover, but he can take a lot of damage, and he can dish plenty of it out with his gun (but be careful of overheating!). Montana’s ultimate ability is Mansformation, which allows him to choose a target and slam down onto them. Mansformation also turns Montana’s skin to metal, minimizing incoming damage.

Reyna is the closest thing to a commander that the disjointed Rogue faction has to offer, rallying the eccentric troops through sheer charisma. She comes armed with a pistol as well as the Command Glove, which lets her shoot a slow-moving projectile that can knock out enemy shields. Her ultimate ability lets her warp to an ally to help them during the fight, which means she can also quickly get out of dodge if things get hairy.
