Small amounts of information about Borderlands 3 has been trickling out from Gearbox. With Randy Pitchford confirming that Slag won’t be in Borderlands 3.

For those unaware, Slag was a damage increasing element available to the player. Anyone exposed to Slag would increase exponentially.

Randy Pitchford explained they’ve replaced it with a new “element” that does damage like a “nuclear radiation effect”. It’s similar to Slag, increasing damage, but has a damage-over-time component.

Borderlands 3 is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on September 13, 2019.
