The hype for Borderlands 3 is building and the more people dig through the game’s promotional material, the more it looks increasingly likely that one of the franchise’s most fierce beast’s is going to make its return – the Destroyer. 

Fans will have to cast their memory back to the first Borderlands game to remember just how powerful the demonic, goldlike character with huge tentacles was. 

However, having to defeat this enemy boss in the original story might not be the last you see of it. In fact, one fan has found what he believes to be a very clear sign that the Destroyer will soon reappear in Borderlands 3. 

Borderlands / TwitchThis Borderlands 3 offline screen on Twitch might have been more revealing than intended.

Gearbox Software and 2K Games have created a brand new Twitch channel for the game, which is standard practice for developers who want to feed fans information about an upcoming game.  

Eagle-eyed YouTuber Joltzdude139 has noticed a very small detail in the game’s new artwork that could be very revealing indeed. Not everyone will have noticed it though. In the video below, he shows the whereabouts of what seems to be morse code built into the offline screen. 

“There’s actually worse code written on the sides of the Psycho,” he says. “Upon reviewing some of the images online of the box art and the end of the official trailer, that morse code does not seem to appear. It appears only on this page.”

While the morse code is quite blurry, Jolzdude took the liberty of decoding it anyway. The left side reads: “Where is the first vault hunter?” Yet, the second line of code asks: “Who is the destroyer?”

While Gearbox have already revealed a Borderlands 3 trailer and some details about the latest installment, there are still a lot of questions to be asked about where the story will take fans next. This, however, could be a hidden clue to tease the return of one of the most deadly beasts the game has to offer. 

The last time the Destroyer was seen in Borderlands, the alien creature was locked up in a vault and was later released, forcing others to take it down. In the remastered version of the game, it was seen sliding back into the vault and its eye was later weaponized. 

Therefore, there’s a good chance we will see it again – perhaps in Borderlands 3. Watch this space.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
