Whiny Borderlands 3 Fans Aren’t Happy
As this couple of enraged Reddit users put it:
Despite inflammatory fears of hordes of bad-mouthed Fortnite kids invading the community, the reality is, as ever, more nuanced.
The crossover only affects Fortnite through a limited-time themed-event that includes a rejigging of a small portion of the map with Borderlands’ signature cel-shaded art style, and a handful of Borderlands-inspired cosmetics are gifted to players who pre-order the game from the Epic Games Store.
