Challenges are special feats that can be completed for bonus experience points (Borderlands) or Badass Ranks (Borderlands 2). The majority of them are based around points earned for kills, depending on the weapon used, damage dealt, or the species of the target. Other challenges involve vehicles, or money and loot items.

Challenge progress can be found in the quest menu by clicking the challenge icon near the top for the PC or by pressing Y-button once on the Xbox when on the mission log screen.

Notes

  • The completion of a Challenge will bring up a notice in the top of the screen. In the case of "Orbit Achieved" this can potentially result in all of the levels of this Challenge being displayed as each level completes in sequence.
  • Challenges differ from Achievements in that they reward Experience Points rather than Gamerscore or Trophies.
  • 758,500 xp points can be gained from all of the challenges combined.
  • Some Challenges are impossible to complete without entering and reentering mission areas many times and some of them are very time consuming even then (like Guardian Kill Challenges).
  • Challenges do not give money as a reward.

Trivia

  • The Action Skill challenge "Your Kung Fu is Best" is a line taken from the The X-Files television series (Season 5, Episode 3). But the phrase itself is a play on "My kung fu is best", which was part of a voicemail message left by 'notorious computer hacker' Kevin Mitnick as a taunt for the investigators who were attempting to apprehend him.
  • The Enemy Kill challenge "I am become Death..." references those same words spoken by J. Robert Oppenheimer, the "father of the atomic bomb", when interviewed about his feelings on the weapon he had designed. More Specifically, he quoted the Bhagavad Gita, a Hindu scripture from which the line originates.
  • The Shots Fired challenge "Who made that man a gunner?" is a reference to Mel Brooks' spoof of Star Wars, SpaceBalls.
  • The Fire Kill challenge "Hot! Too Hot!" is a reference to Spaceballs when Dark Helmet tries to gulp his coffee.

Borderlands 2

After a patch, challenges can be reset after 85% have been completed.

These challenges are tied to specific locations, and have one level (They are either completed or not). Location-specific challenges award varying amounts of Badass Rank. There are at least 64 location-based challenges. These are also called level-specific challenges because they are tied to a certain 'level' (area). Note that the Eridium Blight challenge ‘Save the Turrets’ can be missed.
