Ernest will join the fight against the Varelsi.
Following the release of Battleborn’s second DLC character Pendles, Gearbox Software showcased the next DLC character that would be out in “the next couple months”. Say hello to Ernest.
Ernest is a “defensive mastermind” of sorts and part of the Peacekeepers faction. The developer noted that Ernest possesses “demolition prowess” and is a “brilliant technician”. His actual abilities weren’t revealed but the concept art for him showcases a grenade launcher. Surely that has some purpose other than defense.
As a post-launch DLC character, players will need to pay 47,500 Credits to earn him in-game. Season Pass owners can purchase Ernest with a hero key that comes with each new character launch though and they receive early access. Pendles is currently available for season pass owners and will release for the general population on August 4th.
