Once a prototype for a line of LLC nanny-bots, Kid Ultra is hardwired to lend a helping hand. He’s the pinnacle of LLC support technology, programmed with all sorts of gadgets to assist or subdue a target as he sees fit. Due to some unforeseen disruptions in the universe, though, Kid Ultra – along with all other LLC Magnuses – was severed from the governing AI. While the others may have gone all-out crazy (*ahem* ISIC), Kid Ultra seems to have made it out with just a rather skewed perception of the real world.
Join us to get a first look at Kid Ultra in action on Twitch! The Gearbox gang will show off how he plays and how he most likely, hopefully, probably won’t turn into a nihilistic maniac like some other LLC technology we know.

NEW BATTLEBORN HERO TAUNTS
Never let the enemy forget how you crushed them in battle. A new round of taunts releases later today in the Battleborn in-game Marketplace. Give them some attitude with Reyna, flaunt your victory with Whiskey Foxtrot, or embrace Orendi’s chaos.
