Want to get your hands on Ernest? He’ll unlock for 47,500 earned in-game credits. And for all you Season Pass and Digital Deluxe owners: Ernest Early Access begins August 25!
- Ernest Early Access: August 25 starting at 9am PT for all regions

This demobird is explosive on the battlefield. Some might call him a well-aged boy scout, but Ernest’s sense of honor and duty brings a new means of support and defense previously absent from the Peacekeepers – this is no small part thanks to his grenade launcher. The various explosive charges help Ernest lean on the offensive or provide a mean line of defense for his team.
Catch a sneak peek at this demolition-obsessed avian in today’s Gearbox Software livestream! Check out Ernest gameplay and get the inside scoop from the Devs.
