Tina’s Wonderland – The Creation Behind Its Insane Number Of Gears – IGN First

The Borderlands series is famous for a lot of things, but the standout feature that immediately comes to mind is its huge gun collection, ranging from simple pistols you might see in the West to fanciful works and as ridiculous as The Eridian Craftsman, “Gun Gun” shooting legend. This incredible variety is attributed to the imagination of the Gearbox weapons group and the modular weapon system they have developed.

By giving each gun its own unique set of parts and pieces, and through modern alchemy known as “random number generation” or RNG, the number of weapons in the Borderlands series is nearly impossible. countable. It’s not over with Tiny Tina’s WonderlandGearbox has added more than just guns and launchers to the formula with the introduction of melee weapons and wands.

Rhymes with “Hey-Lay”

IGN First – Tina’s Wonderland Weapons Tiny

Yes, there are guns in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Lots of them. But one of its most exciting new additions is a melee weapon based on the same modular weapon system as the rest of Borderlands. It’s a somewhat convoluted system that’s been tweaked to the point of being practically unnoticed, but its effects are noticeable in the wide variety of melee weapons you can pick up during your travels.

Within each weapon are dozens of different options.


It is not only the variety of weapons, but also the variety in weapons. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ melee weapons come in four different flavors: knives, swords, axes, and blunt weapons like hammers and mother of pearl. Within each weapon are dozens of different options. Lead weapons artist Asia Hawkins says the sword weapon class alone features 12 different blade types and an all-new melee weapon module system that sets it apart from the gun system (I We’ll talk about guns later). At best, it’s “nonsense,” says Hawkins.

For example, the sword has mods on the hilt and blade. The hilt mods provide bonuses to your character when you equip the sword. One example Hawkins shared is a mod to collect ammo during melee attacks, so while dealing close range damage you can also replenish your ammo. Blade mod comes with stat modifications and “looks cooler.” All of these modifications are from the same asset class, and you can imagine how quickly those possible combinations can create a huge amount of diversity.

Just like Borderlands guns, melee weapons also have manufacturers. Valora makes two-handed swords for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, Swift makes one-handed swords, Kleave makes the ax company, and BONK is your only shopping choice for blunt weapons. It’s another delightful touch that adds to the richness of the Wonderlands universe.

Melee weapons, with the exception of the two-handed blade, have the ability to “surf” in their attack, meaning you can hit your enemies with a melee attack before they’re close enough to attack. do the same thing with you. What’s better is how this opens up combo attacks. Creative director Matt Cox offers an example. “Melee towards enemies, stagger them, then hit them with a spell and then a gun.” Add the aforementioned bonuses to your melee weapons and you may end up dealing a bunch of damage while refilling your reserve ammo or any other bonus mods you might have at the time. that point. It opens up some very interesting gameplay possibilities. Oh, and the chests. You can also melee to open chests.

A gun of any other name…

Guns are still part of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. A big part. “Guns are the backbone of loot-shooters,” says Cox, and they’ve made the jump from the main series to Tiny Tina’s Wonderland in a way that’s both novel and completely relevant to both the Borderlands world and the real world. world of Wonderland.

Hawkins said the team asked “What would Tiny Tina dream of on the spot?” They have to put themselves inside the fictional head of a character creating their own fictional world, which is the color of the weapon design. First and foremost, the feel and variety of Borderlands weapons are still here, they’re just Tina-ized. For example, you can use crossbows now, and they have a look and feel that makes them more than just a stun gun. Cox told me, “The bolt hits the enemy. For example, when they’re there, “you can get an offer”.

Borderlands has elemental weapons, such as acid and fire, and Wonderlands throws magic into the mix. They are functionally similar, but there are Wonderlands in the fantasy world around them. The inclusion of spells into the mix was the answer to the group’s question “What will Tina Tiny bring to the Borderlands weapon system?”

Ultimately, envisioning a world of imagination led to some pretty wild creations. “How do we contain it?” Hawkins asked and said that the ideas they came up with were “really crazy.”

One example I was shown, which Hawkins said was her favorite thing to design, was a beast-shaped pistol barrel. It was an almost unwieldy weapon, a cannon in fact -, brutal, barbaric and rude, both in appearance and in the damage it dealt. And to reload this violent monument… subtly sprinkle fairy dust in a crystal cup near the hilt of the sword. It’s a perfect encapsulation of the weapons design team’s vision, no wonder it’s a Hawkins favorite.

The Legendary Floor is where they can get really flexible, says Hawkins. It’s the classic, quirky little Tina thing, which the team approached by deciding “let’s get all our ideas out there.” Regarding other rarity levels, the Wonderlands team didn’t say, but they did tell me that there are spells that affect different rarity levels. So, if you’re one of those Borderlands players who obsess over finding the perfect RNG combination, Wonderlands is here to help.

“There is nothing more exciting than finding that scroll,” says Hawkins.
