I got another chance to play some Borderlands 3. The creators did such a good job making this game so easy to get started and up to speed quickly. As fun as side quests are you can tell extra care goes into the main story line of this game.
I began this video finishing off a couple side quests and eventually got back to the main quest. My quest was to locate a vault map that the cult (the bad guys) had taken from Lilith. The quest begins with an ascent up a hill filled with cultists and tinks. At the top of the hill is a turret.
I fought my way up and was able to use my special to immobilize the turret and dispatch it without too much trouble. After that I ran into a loot tink that exploded with gear when I finished him off. I grabbed what I could and continued on.
I made my way through a winding building. Along the way there were large speakers set up at choke points. When you got close enough they would resound with a sound so loud it would damage you if you were close enough. Foreshadowing…
After a couple more choke points like that I eventually arrived at an open area that resembled a dance floor. Around the edges of the area were more of these large speakers. As I entered the area a boss jumped out and challenged me to a fight. Mouthpiece was his name sonic booms were his game.
For this fight I had to battle through tinks to attack MouthPiece. All the while I had to dodge (often unsuccessfully) the sonic booms coming from the speakers around the edges of the battle area. I went down a couple times, but that’s to the tinks wandering around I was able to revive with a second wind kill.
I struggled a little, but was finally able to defeat MouthPiece. I recovered the vault map. I Killed another loot tink that exploded into a volcano of loot and finally made my way back to base. Once I arrived I returned the vault map to Lilith and called it a day.
I have found the visuals in this game to be quite colorful and impressive. Between the resounding sonic booms and the diverse weapons it is a light show where ever you go!
