I never really understood the need for skins in Borderlands 2. Sure they’re fun to show off to friends when you’re rolling around Pandora in co-op, but it’s pretty said that you’re stuck in first-person and can never see your kicks attire for yourself. That’s why the third-person mod was so popular back then, and now it’s back.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launched just last week, and the famous third-person mod is already available for download. The mod changes your perspective when you’re not aiming down the sights, drawing back the mare so you can see your Handsome Jack bodyguard in all their glory. When you want to aim you snap back into first-person, which is just a little bit jarring at first.
But it does look like Borderlands would work with the feature being a supported option, no? It makes hip firing a bit more difficult, but I actually like the third-person perspective a little better. It also gives you a better view of what’s going on around you, which is pretty helpful in those chaotic four-player skirmishes.
If you’re busy exploring Pandora’s moon and want a better view, then the mod can be downloaded here. Unlike the one for Borderlands 2, this mod doesn’t require a standalone program running in the background. Just download, follow the instructions and you’ll be drooling over ClapTrap’s behind in no time.
Or any of the other three characters. I’m trying not to pick sides.
