Borderlands Fan Gets Eulogized by Claptrap

When Michael John Mamaril was taken by cancer at just 22, his friend Carlo reached out to Gearbox Software to ask for a special way to honor his Borderlands-loving pal. The result is embedded below.

Claptrap sends off Michael with a touch of humor and tons of reverence in one of the most heartfelt instances of fan appreciation ever. And when Gearbox says Michael will live on forever in the Borderlands, they mean it. The late fan will be inserted into Borderlands 2 as an NPC.

Thumbs up to both Gearbox and Carlo for remembering this gamer in such an awesome way.

[Thanks, NecroWolf!]
