Borderlands cosplay may just be the easiest costume to do when you’re on a shoestring budget. Grab a toy gun, rip your shirt off to show off your glistening dad bod and put on a paper mache mask. Congrats! You’re now officially cosplaying as a bandit from that universe. Now run around the convention and shout stuff about meat puppets to complete the ensemble.
If you do want to up your game though, Gearbox has your back for Borderlands 3. New game, new vault hunters and a whole new quartet of fashion to craft. While the developer is keeping mum on the exact details of how they’ll operate (minus those skill trees for Zane and Amara), their new cosplay guides have shed some more light on the gang who’ll be fighting back against Pandora’s latest threats.
I mean, the main villain is a cult leader and a live streamer. You don’t get much more despicable than that. Anyway, here’s a look at the Borderlands 3 fashion which is so hot right now:
Zane the Operative
Zane Flynt, brother of the infamous bandits Captain and Baron Flynt, has been around the galactic block more than a few times. Over the years, he’s worked for, against, and along with every major corporation conducting espionage and assassinations for the highest bidder. With cutting-edge technology and decades of mercenary experience, Zane uses his Sentinel Drone and other gadgets to disorient, disrupt, and destroy his targets.
Amara the Siren
A hero born in the slums of Partali, Amara is most at home on the battlefield or in a brawl. Never content to stand idly by, she uses her Siren abilities to smash oppressors and dismantle her foes. While in her Phasetrance, she channels her Siren energy to form powerful arms that can shoot blasts of force or crush enemies in their grasp. Brash, aggressive, and self-assured, Amara doesn’t let anything stand in her way.
FL4K the Beastmaster
An emergent AI driven in an ongoing quest for self-discovery, FL4K wanders from world to world accompanied by beasts. While they feel a connection with the primal wisdom of animals, the social constructs of humans are strange to them. On their endless hunt, FL4K’s loyal Skag, Spiderant, and Jabber companions help them track and claim their quarry, be it human, Vault Monster, or anything in between.
Moze the Gunner
Once a soldier in the Vladof army’s Ursa Corps, Moze left their service to pursue her own mercenary interests and hunt for the Vaults. When the going gets tough, she can use her digistruct pack to summon her heavy mech ‘Iron Bear’ and face down an army without flinching, using powerful mounted weapons to mow the opposition down. A veteran of wars from across the six galaxies, Moze and Iron Bear are a force to be reckoned with.
