Borderlands 3 Gunplay E3 2019 Impressions

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is a solid package on PlayStation 4, but it's difficult to deny just how dated the moment to moment gunplay feels. There's a distinct lack of impact to most of the weapons, and the visual feedback is pretty poor by today's standards, even if damage numbers are flying all over the screen. What we're trying to say is that it's some distance away from more recent shooters like Destiny 2.

Fortunately, it sounds like developer Gearbox is really beefing up the gunplay for Borderlands 3. Numerous reports coming out of E3 2019, where the game's playable, suggest that the gunplay is generally far tighter than it was in previous instalments. Guns are apparently much weightier, and bullets have a much more noticeable impact when they lodge into your enemies. This video by those lucky sods over at Laymen Gaming does a particularly good job of explaining how things have improved.
