Battleborn Glitches

Map Breaking Glitch

This glitch has your character shoot through walls on an Incursion map. This glitch carried over from the beta, but hasn’t been fixed yet.

Glitch Cause: In the “Overgrowth” map in the Incursion Multiplayer Mode, a sniper like Marquis can target enemies and shoot from behind a wall without getting hit yourself! Both sides can do this, evening out unfair use of this glitch.

Glitch Solution: Don’t do it, the map is not intended to be played this way. Also, in the future you may get banned for exploiting this design flaw if someone reports you.

Bug Fixes

How To Fix Glitches: Download the latest patch for Battleborn, Gearbox uses patches/updates to try and fix the most common glitches on all systems (PC, PS4 & Xbox One).

Here’s what Patch 1.01 fixes:

Here’s the list of hot-fixes/changes that will be implemented on May 3rd, 2016.

An update contains changes that are permanently stored on your system and only needs to be downloaded once. You can download the latest update by launching Battleborn while connected to Steam (PC), PlayStation Network (PS4), and Xbox Live (Xbox One). You will be prompted to install the update if you do not already have the latest version.

A hot fix is automatically applied at the title screen when Battleborn is connected to the internet. In general, hot fixes are used to temporarily address issues between major updates.

Character Balance:


Ambra’s damage output combined with her lifesteal and escape abilities resulted in very high survivability in fights. We wanted to bring this in line with our expectation and reinforce her melee loop as part of her damage output.

Reduced Staff of Radiance beam damage by 34%
Reduced damage of Radiant Wind by 33%
Reduced Left Helix Augmentation Cauterization movement speed gain to 30%


Caldarius’s primary damage output was not as high as we would have liked to see. We’ve raised it to bring him close in line with other characters in his class.

Increased TMP damage by 25%


After a large buff during Open Beta, Ghalt’s shotgun was now over performing at his normal combat distance, so we have reduced it slightly.

Reduced Ghalt’s Revolver Shotgun damage by 13%


To help address late game player dropping, we’ve made the time windows to vote for surrender more generous. We want players to play until the final whistle, but if you’re team is getting steamrolled, we’d prefer an orderly surrender, rather than people bailing early and leaving their teammates hanging. We will continue to look at data and feedback to decide how to handle players who perpetually show bad sportsmanship by dropping from matches.

Increased Surrender Time to Vote window from 30 seconds to 60 seconds
Decreased Surrender Revote time from 3 minutes to 1 minute


Based on Open Beta player data, we’ve made some balance changes to help speed up player progression through the level.

Reduced the health of the Galactic Emperor in The Algorithm
Increased the XP reward for killing the Galactic Emperor in The Algorithm
Reduced the health of all Frigid Golems in The Void’s Edge and The Algorithm
Increased the XP reward for killing Frigid Golems in The Void’s Edge and The Algorithm
Adjusted score requirements for Star Ratings

Bug Fixes:

Fixed some navigational issues when using Kelvin’s Sublimate and traveling over small objects in the world.
