The vault hunters were on a train for the opening credits, they fight Jack's minions and rush the cab where a bomb is waiting for them, bomb goes boom and they fall into the tundra wasteland. The opening has the info you seek.

Typically, Game Of The Year editions of games are the base game bundled with most (if not all) DLC released up to the release date of the GOTY. They are typically packaged to get players who have not yet purchased the game into the full experience without having to figure out what DLC they need. The Steam store page and the Borderlands Wikia page indicate ...

A late answer but for anyone curious, once you are pulled in whether you don't know when it's coming and can't find cover quick enough or you just do not focus on the health, completely understandable, there are a few tricks you can perform. Take note, this move often occurs around 15-30% health region. Terramorphous will also become extremely vulnerable to ...

Steam actually has a built in setting for you to check the FPS of any game. Go into setting and select the In-Game options and change the In-Game FPS counter to whatever position you want. This will then show some small text in one of the corners with the current FPS of the game.

Starting a new character starts over from scratch. The only weapons that can "carry over" are the ones you put in the stash by claptrap.

There is none who is "made" for playing solo. Every character in Borderlands 2 can be played solo. They just have different fighting styles and therefore, some are better for soloing the game. Note that this only applies to the first 2 difficulties. Once you hit UHVM. The game will become harder. MUCH harder. Axton: Tactical fighter, uses mainly ...

The Season Pass includes only the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1. It does not include Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2: Digistruct Peak Challenge. Therefore, the level cap with the Season Pass is Level 61.

Firstly, the reason he is getting his health back is because you are going to far away from the fight. Bosses regenerate all their health when you leave the area. You will notice that they also regenerate all their health if you die. Instead of walking off to find ammo, look for: ammo crates, safes,fridges, toilets, anything around the immediate area that ...

Per the Steam store page (emphasis mine): Discover the story behind Borderlands 2 villain, Handsome Jack, and his rise to power.

In Borderlands 2, it is possible to view your experience in 2 places. The first is the large EXP bar that is at the very bottom of the HUD: The other place to view your experience, and also the only place that will display the exact numerical amount, is on the left-most menu page, shown here: The experience is represented as: Total Experience Earned / ...

If you buy the GOTY Edition you'd still have to buy the Headhunter DLCs and the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack Two: Digistruct Peak Challenge DLC. Since a lot of other DLCs in addition of the season pass DLCs are included in the GOTY edition it's better to buy GOTY, even if you already have the base game. Source: The package will contain: ...

You are correct, Jakobs brand weapons are semi-automatic and will only fire when the trigger is pulled, regardless of how fast that might be. Fan that hammer, cowboy. However, there are some exceptions to this. White and Blue-rarity Jakobs sniper rifles are bolt-action and thus are affected by the rate of fire stat. The higher the RoF stat the faster the ...

You need to beat him at your level in order to get a higher level drop. On the first playthrough the areas don't scale So he'll always be level 1 and drop level 1 gear. You need true vault-hunter mode (which will cause all their areas to re-scale starting from 30) or ultimate vault-hunter mode (where areas scale to your current level). To unlock those you ...

The shields that grant immunity to any element, doesn't grant you immunity against base damage, it grants immunity against the elemental add-on damage bonuses, in addition to the damage-over-time debuff. With an immunity-shield, you will still take base damage, and you will still have a hard time against strong/higher-leveled enemies.

Black rarity is apparently a hack that was supposedly patched a very long time ago. It was never an intended part of the game though, played over 300 hours since launch. They're not drops.

I noticed setting the resolution to 4k ingame made the game look worse than when it rendered in 2560x1440, so I had a hunch the game was rendering in 4k and scaling the graphics back down to 2560x1440; typical scaling behavior on high DPI screens. So what I did was force Windows to stop scaling the game. There are 2 ways to do this (works for any app, not ...

You restart in True Vault Hunter Mode, the second difficulty. (Go to main menu, Select Character, re-select your character, and it should ask you which difficulty you want to play in). TVHM is the same game, but starts at level 30, and ends at level 50. Also, some more difficult variations of enemies are introduced, like Armored Psychos. All elemental ...

Yes. The constant vibration is the primary special effect of that particular gun (though it also has the heal-on-damage all Moxxi-branded weapons get). And no, there is no way to turn it off completely other than simply turning off vibration entirely. The Wikia wiki on Borderlands has an entire page about the special effects of various weapons, if you ever ...

First of all, you might want to reconsider your build. My experience with Zer0 is that his builds are highly situational, and using the wrong one in certain situations can make you feel very under-powered. I used his left (sniping) tree for the majority of playthrough 1, but after getting to the second playthrough it started feeling underwhelming-- I'm now ...

In WillowEngine.ini, find this line: DefaultPostProcessName=WillowEngineMaterials.WillowScenePostProcess To turn off the shader, you need to make adjustments to the line — namely, remove both instances of the word “Willow,” so it looks like this: DefaultPostProcessName=EngineMaterials.ScenePostProcess Source:http://www.gamefront.com/how-to-improve-...

Yes, you will still unlock achievements if you switch to Offline mode inside Borderlands 2. Achievements for Borderlands 2 are generally never disabled. The only way to miss out on achievements is due to synchronization errors with Steam itself.

Mystery solved... my friend said that he's simply never sold any inventory items, so the extra slots are all from mission rewards! He has the GOTY edition and has never gotten any game updates because there's no internet connection at his home, so this may not work for those of us who get regular game updates. He also said that a drawback is that you can'...

Yes it is, there is a damage multiplier that is applied to your character when you are facing an enemy. If the enemy level is : strictly less than 3 level(s) above you : the damage multiplier is 1 (nothing changes) 3 or more levels above you : the damage multiplier is 0.88^level difference. Which mean the higher the level difference, the smaller the ...

No, there are no direct story missions that take you to Lynchwood. Lynchwood actually differs to most other locations in that the enemies there scale to your level (most other locations have a fixed level). In normal mode, this is capped at level 30 (enemies spawn at level 32). This means it won't get any easier if your delay. However, there is a wealth of ...

As mentioned by djsmiley2k in the comments, this is indeed just an Easter egg statement in reference to the 'Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy'. In the second Lost ECHO recording detailing Zer0's backstory, Handom Jack tells Angel she's "got a brain the size of a planet", which is reference to Marvin the depressed android's "brain the size of a planet" ...

I found this table from the Gearbox website about drops rates. The Badaboom is a legendary item, making its odds of dropping a 1 and 10000 chance. But that is just for a legendary item. From what I can gather, there are pools of weapons (SMG pool, pistol pool, etc.), manufacturer pools, and more. It also considers what kind of bandit you killed, (regular ...

No, you cannot reach level 72 without True or Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode. On a normal playthrough, your level is capped at 50. You will not be able to get higher than level 50 until you attempt playthroughs 2 or 3. Your second playthrough (New Game+, essentially) will raise your level cap by 11, to 61. Your third playthrough (New Game++) will raise your ...
