Borderlands 2 To Have Deathmatch Multiplayer? Gearbox Says They’re “Thinking About It”

RipTen - The original Borderlands offered it’s own bit deathmatch in the form of player arena duels, but what about a full fledged deathmatch multiplayer mode? Well, Gearbox says it’s a possibility.

The story is too old to be commented.

Hmmm interesting. The duels in the original were underwhelming IMO. We shall see what happens.

Yeah the duels seemed... kind of broken based on classes...

I assume that deathmatch would have a bit more balance to it, but what's the point if you can't use your character from the game...

If it ain't broke, don't add tacked on multiplayer modes!!

I see your point dude but I love deathmatch, it's my favorite multiplayer mode so I can't resist wanting to see how this would turn out. ,

Agreed, please just concentrate on delivering a kickass sp and co-op experience. Leave TDM for other games.

Borderlands is a sandbox game, and it had many bugs, so if they use their time to fix all the bugs instead of making a TDM, Borderlands 2 will be epic.

Yeh looks like Borderlands is getting the COD treatment when they instead should focus more on the SP aspect of the game!

Deathmatch, killstreaks, perks, and spawn kills coming soon to a super glued on MP!

BL will be the most unbalanced competetive game in history if they let you use the custom characters. And if they don't, it won't be as fun as you will be familiar with using your special character.

I don't think this will work.

However, if they decide to do this, PLEASE don't put in any achievement for the MP. That way people who don't want to deal with YET ANOTHER deathmatch don't have to.

I found achievements fun at first but over time I really found myself wish the ability to disable the function all together. I am not a fan of online gaming and yet most games have some online component now so those achievements are worthless.

As long as they put effort into SP to be on par or better as the last one then this game should do fine but lets hope its better then bulletstorms.

Give me a Capture the Gun mode and I will be content.
