The 25 Characters of Battleborn: Toby

Battleborn is out on May 3rd and unlike most other games, it comes with 25 heroes for you to choose from. Since there are so many heroes we've decided to sum up each of their abilities in a separate article.

So which Badass are you?


The Battleborn Toby is an engineering genius from the planet Menneck-B. As he may look like a harmless little penguin he’s actually the destroyer of worlds as Toby likes to say. Heavily-armed in a battle mech by his own design Toby wanted to sign up with the Peacekeepers just like Benedict. As his homeworld was claimed by the Varelsi Toby wanted to get vengeance from the corpses of his enemies. Unlike Benedict, Toby was shown the door and that made him snap. He got angry and aligned with the Rogues. While guys like Toby always did all the hard work in the background, now he needs no permission to go into battle. Toby’s a fearsome, badass brawler, dishing out hurt on the battlefield in “Berg”, his walking battletank.



Clad in his battle mech “Berg”, the adorable-yet-fearsome Toby’s considerable engineering talent provides for on-the-fly modification to respond to a variety of battlefield conditions


Toby can place a force shield onto the battlefield to create a barrier between him and incoming projectiles. This also gives a little pick-me-up buff in the process, these are speed and damage boosts. When deployed you see a circle that indicates the area of effect. Shooting through the Energy Shield with your Railgun will boost the damage output of your attacks.


Toby launches a mine with Berg’s arm cannon. These Arc Mines stick to any surface and zap the crap out of any ne’er-do-wells dumb enough to tread near them. Arc Mines deal 60 area damage per second for 8 seconds. Afterwards, the Arc Mine will explode dealing 90 damage.


When fully powered, Toby’s mech anchors to the ground and readies up a barrage of pain. Turn. Aim. Shoot. Apologize! Repeat. Transform your mech to charge up a powerful laser that deals 120 damage a second for 6 seconds.


Double-jumping while holding direction grants Toby a quick boost in that direction. Boosters hold a total of 3 charges that recharge after 8 seconds.

As you may know, Battleborn's accelerated character growth system allows players to level-up a character from 1 to 10 and fully experience each hero's unique weapons and powers in a single story mission or multiplayer match.

This means you'll be able to make use of Toby's Helix abilities as you work your way through the levels.

Here's a quick look at Toby in action.
