Punch enemies to kingdom come with Borderlands 3’s Siren, Amara!

Punch enemies to kingdom come with Borderlands 3’s Siren, Amara!

If you’re the kind of Vault Hunter that likes to get up close and personal with the enemy, then Borderlands 3’s new Siren just might be the perfect fit for you.

Earlier this morning, Gearbox released the third character profile for the long-awaited sequel, which is set to launch on 13th September. This time, it features Amara, a rough, tough “people’s hero” who’s always looking for a good fight.

But what’s truly interesting about her compared to the previous Siren, Maya is in her combat approach. Conventionally, Maya is relegated to more supportive roles such as healing and de-buffing opponents.

However, Amara tosses all that out the window in favour of some in-your-face action. Those huge magical fists aren't for show, you know.

Getting back on topic, looks like there’s only one Vault Hunter left to show off, which is FL4K the Beastmaster. Based on the release pattern so far, we can probably expect to see him drop by this coming Friday or Saturday.

Speaking of which, if you've got some time to kill, you might want to check out Amara's skills in the official blog post. She's all about damage, so players can opt for hefty damage-over-time by investing in her Fist of the Elements skill tree, or adopt more direct approaches via her Mystical Assault or Brawl lineups.
