Borderlands 3 Will Not Use A Derogatory Term Towards Short People

In an effort to not hurt the sentiment of people, Gearbox claims that they will not use the term midget. The team has taken this step as the term felt insulting towards people who are very short.

Instead, the developers who used the terms in their previous titles have coined another term which will substitute in its place. From now on smaller versions of the enemies will be called as ‘Tinks’.

Other offensive terms still find their way in the game, psycho is a term that the developers have not taken against. This too goes against people with mental issues. DLC character Kreig’s moniker in Borderlands 2 was ‘the psycho’.

As the release of Borderlands 3 keeps getting closer, new information is coming out every week. The game looks to be absolutely fun in the previews and a lot of hype has already been generated, partly because of the success of the earlier titles that came before Borderlands 3.

Borderlands 3 will be an Epic Store exclusive when it comes out on September 13 until April 2020.

The game will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
