Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is the latest game in the popular Borderlands franchise. Like Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is not a mainline game in the franchise, acting more as a spin-off and evolution of the ideas brought about in the Assault on Dragon Keep DLC for Borderlands 2. The latest first-person shooter from Gearbox does still give players a similar level of looting and shooting, alongside the new classes, story, and setting of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
However, as fans have been digging into the game over the past few days, they’ve been discovering the things they like and don’t like about Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. There are already fans finding easter eggs, such as a nod to the Smurfs and a wholesome tribute to the developers at Gearbox. Also, some have found glitches that allow for unlimited skeleton keys, though fans are also coming across things that aren’t positive. Some fans already have feedback for Gearbox on what they’d like to see changed sooner rather than later, especially where cosmetics are concerned.
Pointed out by a post on Reddit, user The4horsemen showed how in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, cosmetics that the player already owns can appear in the missed loot bin. The missed loot bin appears in Brighthoof in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and though the initial concern was over this, fans quickly pointed out that repeated cosmetic drops were essentially pointless. Though cosmetics that are already known can be traded to other players, many fans believe that the game should just remove known cosmetics from the loot pool for all players, so that new cosmetics can be gained easily through play rather than through chance.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands players not only had a problem with known cosmetics dropping, they also are asking for a different color to be shown when cosmetic loot is dropped. Currently, cosmetics are purple when dropped, which is the same rarity as “epic” guns. This means that for some players, they’ll finish a boss fight and believe a rare, powerful, or unique weapon may have dropped, only to find out that their loot is actually just another drop of a cosmetic they already picked up.
Though this is a problem that Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands players want to see fixed in the future, it currently is not game-breaking and players are finding plenty of other things to enjoy in the game. The character creator, for one, is something entirely new to the Borderlands franchise and is allowing players to traverse the fantasy setting of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands as anyone, from Shrek to Zavala from Destiny 2.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
