Battleborn Factions: The Lore Behind All 5 Factions

Battleborn tells the story of a universe that has just one remaining star – Solus. All of the other stars have been wiped from existence by an evil known as Varlesi – a group of vicious enemies consisting of various Thralls and Shadows that have traveled universe to universe darkening the stars for thousands of years.

5-Battleborn-Factions

Battleborn Factions

Various species within the universe have now made the Solus system their home. These species are now part of 5 different factions – all of which contain their own heroes. With one exception, they all fight against the Varlesi in hopes of preserving the last star and save the universe. Details of each faction are provided below.

The Eldrid

The Eldrid are mostly naturalists who, for thousands of years, have been observers and scientists. They are responsible for natural order within the universe as a whole. Before the Varlesi began destroying the stars the Eldrid were a massive group that were known throughout numerous galaxies. Now they fight to defend the last star in hopes of preserving their order.

Eldrid Heroes:

  • Alani
  • Boldur
  • Kelvin
  • Mellka
  • Miko
  • Thorn

The Jennerit Imperium

Once a righteous group dedicated to recruiting other factions to help defeat the Valersi the Jennerit Imperium is now sided with the villainous brutes. This is due to Lothar Rendain, a warlord that seized control of the group and pledged allegiance to the Valersi in order to save his species from certain doom. Like other factions, the Jennerit have suffered major losses over the years, but they’re still one of the best and largest military forces in the universe.

Jennerit Heroes:

  • Ambra
  • Attikus
  • Caldarius
  • Deande
  • Rath

The Last Light Consortium

The Last Light Consortium, which is more commonly referred to as the LLC, is a group consisting mostly of cybernetic species that are greedy businessmen at the core. They’re currently the most well-off faction from an economic standpoint. Their primary goal in any given situation is to produce a hefty profit.

The LLC was once directly partnered with the UPR but, after realizing the partnership wasn’t beneficial in terms of economic gains, they split from the group. The LLC currently owns and operates the weapons manufacturing powerhouse known as Minion Robotics.

LLC Heroes:

  • El Dragon
  • ISIC
  • Kleese
  • Marquis
  • Phoebe

The Rogues

The Rogues really live up to their name. They are a group consisting of various survivalists, mercenaries, and other misfits that simply refuse to take orders from anyone else. The faction resides in the Detritus Rings, a location largely separated from the homes of other groups. Despite their rebellious nature and unorganized structure, the Rogues still hold a role in saving the universe from the Valersi.

Rogue Heroes:

  • Orendi
  • Reyna
  • Shayne and Aurox
  • Toby
  • Whiskey Foxtrot

United Peacekeeping Republics

The United Peacekeeping Republics, better known as the UPR, are a militaristic band of species that, much like any true army, fight for the preservation of freedom, the protection of life, and equality. The group has lost much, especially since the LLC left them high and dry, but the UPR remains vigilant and committed to their values.

UPR Heroes:

  • Benedict
  • Galilea
  • Ghalt
  • Oscar Mike
  • Montana

To put it simply… this is the most comprehensive strategy guide available for Battleborn… PERIOD.

Battleborn Ultimate Badass Multiplayer Guide

This guide focuses entirely on multiplayer because, well, that’s what most players are interested in. The RPG elements of the game are great – no doubt – but most people just want to learn how to kick asses and take names in the competitive multiplayer portion of Battleborn.

That’s exactly what we created this guide for. It’s an in-depth tutorial that explains everything about each game mode, the buildables, the maps, leveling up, winning matches, how to play smart and effectively with each character, how to develop your build through gear and the helix – and everything inbetween.

With the Ultimate Badass Multiplayer Guide you’ll learn how to absolutely DOMINATE the playing field in Battleborn’s multiplayer.

This guide includes:

  • Full Breakdown of Each Game Mode
  • Pro Strategies for Dominating All Modes on All Maps
  • In-Depth Character Guides for Every Hero
  • Tips and Tricks for Developing Powerful Character Builds
  • Gear Recommendations for Each Hero and Playing Style
  • Secret Shortcuts for Leveling Up Faster
  • Complete Explanation of the Character Helix System
  • Tips for Racking Up Credits to Purchase Loot

…. and TONS more.

Dominate ALL Modes

In our guide we break down each game mode piece by piece to give players the best understanding of how each one is played, what each player type (support, attacker, defender) needs to focus on during every match, tips and tricks that lead to more wins, and more.

 

Unlike other FPS games Battleborn isn’t a game where you can go lone-wolf and expect to carry your team to victory. It’s a team sport that requires proper coordination and players carrying out their designated roles correctly. Working together is key to success.

This guide explains exactly what each player should do and provides some awesome strategies for dominating the opposition in every game mode on every map.

Character Guides

Having a hard time figuring out the best way to play with Ambra, Oscar Mike, Galilea, or ANY other Battleborn hero? No worries! We provide in-depth guides for every single character in the game.

 

We cover all of this in great detail:

  • Each Character’s Playing Role
  • Tips for Mastering Weapons, Skills, and Ultimate Abilities
  • Recommended In-Game Builds Level by Level
  • Best Gear Pieces to Use for Every Hero

Plus, a whole lot more.

You won’t ever have to worry about going into battle without knowing your hero’s role, best setup, advantages, disadvantages, or anything else ever again. These in-depth character guides will help you master every hero in the game and significantly improve your gameplay in every match.

Leveling Up and Credits

In order to unlock some of the most powerful and useful characters in the game you’ve got to reach high Command Rank. Progressing this rank, however, can be brutally slow at times. In the Battleborn Ultimate Badass Multiplayer Guide we show you the easiest ways to gain tons of XP and rank up insanely fast so you can unlock the heroes you want as soon as possible.

 

Another big thing is getting credits. Credits are used to purchase loot packs which contain gear for your characters. We explain the best ways to amass tons of credits, allowing you to buy up the pricier loot packs which guarantee higher-rarity, more powerful pieces of gear that’ll help you destroy your competition.

Why You NEED This Guide

While this game is, at its core, an FPS title – it’s far more complicated than other games in this genre. With all the character options, hundreds of pieces of gear with varying stats, different playing styles, team coordination, and so on… Battleborn is quite the complex beast.

This is especially true for players that are completely new to MOBA-style games.

That’s why we developed this guide. It’s designed to turn complete noobs into powerhouse players and help seasoned MOBA gamers learn the best strategies FAST.

This is THE guide to have to get ahead in Battleborn – simply put.

Battleborn SHiFT Codes: Full List of Reward Codes

SHiFT is the account registration system that Gearbox Software uses for their games. They’ve previously used it to distribute rewards and bonuses to players on Borderlands titles. Now it’s being utilized to do the same for Battleborn. Gamers can claim rewards by using various SHiFT codes on their accounts.

SHiFT codes are distributed from time to time by the developer. In the past, they’ve posted these regularly on their social media accounts – especially Twitter. This will likely be the norm for codes that are valid in their new MOBA, Battleborn, as well. Below we’ve provided a complete list of all known codes that players can use.

Battleborn SHiFT Codes List

The codes provided below can be used on your SHiFT account to get access to various rewards. Right now these only consist of skins for the characters in the game, but will likely include other bonuses such as taunts, pieces of gear, and possibly other in-game items in the future.

BattlebornSHIFTBETA

  • SWKTB-356W6-XC5RJ-XK6T3-HJ333 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) : This code provides players with 3 gold skins which were earned for gamers completing challenges in the open beta. These skins are for the Benedict, ISIC, and Shayne & Aurox characters.

Gearbox Software will likely put out many more of these special codes in the future. If and when they do, we’ll update our list so that you can get every reward possible.

NOTE: Some of these codes will only be available for a limited duration. We will make note of which codes have expiration dates when the information is provided.

How to Use SHiFT Codes

Applying these codes to your Battleborn account is actually very easy. You can access the SHiFT system directly from within the game itself. Just head to the Main Menu and then locate the Extras menu. Here you’ll find a section dedicated to SHiFT. Go into it.

Once you’re in the SHiFT are you’ll be prompted to sign into your account. Go ahead and do that.

After signing in you’ll see an input box that is specifically for codes. Enter your SHiFT code into the box and then click on the ‘Redeem’ button. This will process the code and apply the rewards to your Battleborn account which you can then access in-game.
