Get to Know Your Clan Leaders
Updated: Jul 24
Your clan leaders are constantly working behind the scenes to make your experience with Battleborn -and Destiny- more positive and engaging. For the most part, we're not what most would consider "elite players." We're dads that just want to do our part to make sure that the people we play with are having as great an experience as we are.
Battleborn is one of the greatest clans in Destiny. But what makes us great? Is it because we are filled with elite players? Is it because we're constantly completing raids and striving for PvP greatness? While it's true that we do those things, they are not what makes Battleborn great. What makes our clan great is our spirit of inclusiveness and our willingness to aid our fellow Guardian with what they need. Our members are people that are fun to be around.
Battleborn has been and will continue to be a place where you will not be limited by a lack of the "right" gear, a high enough skill metric or experience. Your clan leaders are committed to this vision and will work to preserve it while serving you.
But who are these mysterious Clan Leaders? Let's peel back the curtain and look into these people and some of their interests outside of Destiny.
