Montana is a Peacekeeper soldier with a heart of gold who basically just wants everyone to have fun. He’s by far the biggest character in Battleborn so far, and totes a gigantic mini-gun to match his massive frame. Montana’s slow and can’t really hide behind cover, but he can take a lot of damage, and he can dish plenty of it out with his gun (but be careful of overheating!). Montana’s ultimate ability is Mansformation, which allows him to choose a target and slam down onto them. Mansformation also turns Montana’s skin to metal, minimizing incoming damage.

Montana is available to play at the start of the game.

BIO

When he’s not clotheslining bears for fun, Montana can be found suppressing enemies with his fearsome minigun and soaking up industrial-sized buckets of hurt on behalf of his comrades. Self-appointed morale officer of the Battleborn and friend to all.[1]
