After building up a lot of anticipation, developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games has finally released Borderlands 3 last week for PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but is suffering from a series of issues.

Only a day into launch, players on PC platforms start encountering a number of problems with no help at hand. Therefore, they are all rallying up to Steam forums for Borderlands 2 to let other know about their experience.

RELATED: Borderlands 3 to Be Epic Games Store Exclusive

Shortly after the game was announced, an accidental Tweet has revealed in advance that latest installment of popular looter shooter franchise Borderlands will be an Epic Store-exclusive and PC gaming community become furious.

Initially, a legion of angry fans started review bombing on Steam when that news came out and Valve had to take action by flagging them as off-topic review activity, something that Gearbox CEO, Randy Pitchford made quite a deal about.

Back then they were mad because of valid concerns and now things are slowly unfolding as Gearbox has apparently released a rushed product within a set release window that remains half-baked, rather than taking time and fixing it.

People are facing all sorts of problems from lack of DirectX 12 support, frame-rate drops, performance issue and even some of them losing their save files. Some are having trouble with FPS drops regardless of having best graphics settings.

Fans are heading to Steam to talk about issues they are facing because Epic Games Store nether have any forums or user review section. They are only going there in hopes to talk to someone who might have found a solution and can help.

Many users are redirecting them to Gearbox Software official forums since no one has a solution for these problems yet. Developers are reportedly looking into it and affected users are advised to log a ticket at official support of 2K Games.

Borderlands 3 having problem is just not an opinion of sentimental PC players who are not happy about EGS but are facing genuine problem. Even many reviewers gave it a poor score due to those same issues they faced playing earlier.

Despite majority of disappointed fans of the game are being from PC platform, BL3 has player complains from consoles as well. Industry experts are suggesting to trade graphics for frame-rates, which is completely unacceptable for a new game.

Some players have initially reported for facing trouble streaming because they didn't had super fast internet and Gearbox has put Denuvo in the game, an online DRM that takes up a lot of their bandwidth and ruining their experience.

Even players on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X suffered from frame-rate drops that require a patch very soon. Hopefully, Borderlands 3 will try to and get better in next six months or by the time a finished version finally arrives on Steam.

The Division 2 Adds Gunner Specialization

Tom Clancy tactical shooter title The Division 2 adds new Gunner specialization within SHD Agents ranks.

Other than mostly being a tactical shooter, The Division 2 has action role-playing aspects and skill system in place for players to focus on. Already three different specializations are deployed so far and the game just added another one.

A fourth Specialist, Gunner is recruited this month as a tank within squad alongside previously added Demolitionist, Sharpshooter and Survivalist class to wreck havoc on the streets of Washington, D.C. and help reclaim it.

Signature weapon for Gunner would be a powerful minigun and receive bonus armor depending on Specialization ammunition amount, when activated. Only downside is Gunner can't go for cover, roll or even vault when drawing weapon.

Though lack of cover would be a disadvantage for any Division agents but that has been compensated with wave of bullets at their disposal. Considered a vanguard for fellow SHD Agents, they have great prominence in both inflicting and sustaining damage.

Gunner has a new skill tree, P320 XCompact sidearm and Banshee Signature Skill to confuse enemies. It will make them coming out of cover and unsettled, only to get blasted into bits or get trapped in place by special Riot Foam grenade.

Unlocking this new specialization class would require players to complete Special Field Research, which are five stages of in-game challenges. Taking on objectives will offer you rewards and allow access of Gunner with newest signature weapon.
