Play Through the Story
Playing through Battleborn’s story provides a few benefits. The first is that it gives you a feel for the game. Different locations, different enemy types, and challenging bosses force you to adapt and become a better player. The story throws a bit of everything at you to keep you on your toes.
Other than the benefits of learning the ropes, the story also gives you plenty of opportunities to level up your Commander Rank and a few characters which lead to the unlocking of other characters which may be more to your liking. On top of new characters, you will obtain a lot of credits and some decent gear. By the time you finally do enter any of the Versus modes, you should be well situated and prepared for anything that may be thrown at you.
