Borderlands 3 multiplayer
Borderlands is better with friends. Team up with three friends online or have a buddy over for some couch co-op. Players can join a friend's game at any time thanks to a new co-op level scaling system that ensures enemies aren't overpowered or underpowered in your game.
And if your friend has a sweet gun you'd like to have? You can offer to trade them for it or start a duel.
