The "cover art"

The cover art doesn't really bring anything to the article and just makes it longer. And it's not really that well made, as no one would really use an in-game shot from the previous game in the series as a cover art, so I suggest it to be removed. Mailia 18:54, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Wait a second. Aren't you the person who put it there in the first place? It seems that way, according to the section above this.GT: ConceitedJarrad XBOX360 18:58, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Nope. Not my addition. Check the revisions again. Mailia 19:03, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

I see. you added the logo. I suppose you're right, on second thought. It's inaccurate info in an article. Remove it again if you wish, but just don't "undo" because my last revision was to clean up the article a bit.GT: ConceitedJarrad XBOX360 19:07, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

I'll be honest, half the reason I undid you in the first place was because I thought it was Matt of the Wastes who made that edit, and typically "undoing" him is never a bad move. My bad, it was more reflex than anything.GT: ConceitedJarrad XBOX360 20:12, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Scans of the GI article. Get 'em while they're hot. Dämmerung 20:30, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

The art is pretty cool. The enemies look badass. The guns do look unique and different. Im not sure if its just me but the only vehical shown looks like the ride from Halo minus the turret on top. Lets hope they dont go there. Veggienatersml 20:38, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Salvador the Gunzerker

From reading the "Scans of the GI" artical linked by Dammerung above, It would seem that Duel-wielding is his Action Skill. This gives him the ability to use two of the same type of weapon for a short period of time the same way Roland can drop his Turret or Lilith can enter Phasewalk. Very interesting. Veggienatersml 21:07, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

According to the interview with Randy P (viz. video on, action skills are richer overall. And apparently the all-new-and-improved Zerker can still Zerk with his fists while raging, too, old-style. Makes me wonder how much the remaining classes will be tweaked-and-improved versions of the old classes. Gunsiren. Gunhunter. Gunsoldier. gives me a real Cheat Commandos vibe Dämmerung 21:12, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Im hoping Phasewalk makes a reappearence. I love that skill. Though i was wrong about the ability to Duel-wield the same type of weapon. Apparently he can Duel-wield any two weapons at the same time while in his Active Ability mode. Veggienatersml 21:16, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Also, I.N.A. Claptrap will now be fighting on the same side as the "Vault Hunters" instead of against them. I would like to see a tag team with my old Friend Clappy against the forces of EVIL. That could be fun and quite amusing as well. Veggienatersml 21:34, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Erdium... Eredian

Obvious connection. But it still needs to be said. The only question is whether they created it, or mined it? 21:11, August 16, 2011 (UTC)

Iridium(spelled Eridium in the G.I. artical) is a real, albeit rare, mineral that can be found on earth. Mining for Eridium is one of the reasons for the orginal settelment of Pandora. Eridians( Aliens) were most likely named after the Mineral, not the other way around. Veggienatersml 21:27, August 16, 2011 (UTC)

Eridium probally isn't misspeled, it's probally named after Iridium. Eridians probally invented it and stored it in the ground. They probally think everyone wants to steal it, that's why they are hostile. I'm not looking for a fight, i'm just saying what I think. Purple dempsey 222 18:27, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

The new classes action skills

I was thinking that if there is a new Soldier class, the turret drop might be sweet if you could equipe any weapon from your inventory. Imagine a Mongol turret or A Steel Anarchy turret. I guess we will find out next year. Awesome. Veggienatersml 12:53, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

I'm personally hoping for a mannable turret. Mounted weapons were so few and far between in the first one, they need to make a better, more structured appearence in 2. Maybe have it be ammunition based, not time based, and have skills give it a grenade/missle launcher, and those ray-shield things for cover? As stated, only time will tell—Preceding unsigned comment added by The Cyan Dragon (talkcontribs)

Borderlands 2 Podcast

new video of BL2 Gameplay

Didnt see this anywhere here so im adding it. Chech this out. WOW just WOW. Veggienatersml 15:16, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Working from a lower-res version, I did my best to capture those zerker skills at Talk:Salvador. Will take another pass from your mo'betta version. Dämmerung 17:10, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Theres that. Did you see the GUNS! and the very end with Salvador giving the double salute when he was flung off the dam? DAM!!!!!! Again WOW. Veggienatersml 17:25, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

So much detail, so many pending unanswered questions. Can't tell if the variable ROF is a Vladof feature or a class attribute or something else. And that final double-number-one fall-off-the-map animation (which is awesome) suggests that explosions now throw you around, just like rocket blasts would throw around enemies in BL1. (though I don't remember actually knocking an enemy off the map in BL1, ever). (time to roll up a new Bombardier and test that memory) Dämmerung 17:45, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Atlas out of bussines? Yeah right...

I heard that the Atlas will not be returning to Borderlands 2 is becouse they where but out of bussines in the end of Secret Armory of General Knoxx. THAT MAKES NO SENSE!!! They are said to be the biggest and richest manufactered controlling alot of worlds and making food, space ships, suitcases etc. Their even have their own Private army! (Although Hyperion has that to). It would make no sense that they would be put out of bussines becouse General Knoxx is killed and his armory has destroyed. He and his army whas just a small part of the Crimson Lance witch is just a small part of the Atlas Corporation! I understand that they have forsaken Pandora but the arcticle claim otherwise! How can this be? Harald97 16:17, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Because it's already been confirmed. They're out of business. Nohai 11:42, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Where exactly does it say they're out of business? I think it makes more sense that they simply abandoned further efforts on Pandora. 02:17, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

it says this in the Game Informer artical. I do think it say that Atlas is put out of business on Pandora. It does not say if it is put out of buiness everywhere. Veggienatersml 02:59, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. The article on the wiki joust said that they were out of bussines. Harald97 20:46, October 5, 2011 (UTC)
Atlas is out of buisness on Pandora, But not on other planets like Promethea (announcement in t-bone mentions promethea) B(A)rderlands: For All Your Claptrap Needs!
I find it strange that Atlas guns cannot be found at all on the planet. I mean sure, they pulled out of Pandora, but there is no way they took all their guns with them. 16:28, October 12, 2012 (UTC)Methshin

i beleve there is a video on youtube mentioning a new weapon type 12 mins 32 secs in . a bullet hose. with 3+ barrels and a new ammo type. smaller rockets.. if someone wants to add that info

the new ammo type was gyro jets 4:45

modders definitely exist...I've encountered several with 8+ commando turrets, with all upgrades (shield, longbow, mag-lock, double-barrel slag and nuclear explosion on-deploy). 22:14, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

More colors suddenly?

Hasn't anyone noticed the fact there's more vegitation?

Is it because the giant H blocking out the sun/moon helped this because they let off too much heat for anything to grow? 03:02, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

Not sure about the giant H. One of the complaints by many players is that there was not enough veriaty in the environments, so they are adding more "colors". Since we have only seen a "small portion of the planet" so far, that leaves room for them to expand in this area of the game. Veggienatersml 03:14, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

Since this takes place 5 years after the first game, it should be at the begining of winter on Pandora. Perhaps that is when the vegitation is at it's fullest since the summer is so hot. 01:56, October 27, 2011 (UTC)

Pandora is a big place. The change in climate isn't due to the seasons changing, it's a location change. Nohai 13:05, October 27, 2011 (UTC)

Still, with all the hype, I wonder why they're waiting so long to let people know. It seems that waiting this long to give us a release date is just wearing the excitement thin. War1ord 36 13:54, January 20, 2012 (UTC)

They are still working on the game. they only just started working on the live action Lilith shots and im sure they have a ways to go game play. They still have not released anything about the other two playable Vault Hunters. My guess its going to still be a while before we get a definite date. --Veggienatersml 14:38, January 20, 2012 (UTC)

What Veg said. Remember, they wouldn't even admit that a Borderlands 2 existed until last August. "Leaks" are incredibly valuable publicity tools, and Gearbox is doling them out carefully to maintain the sense of excitement during the remainder of the long development cycle. Just look at how hard they're recycling the poor Gunzerker! I predict a release in time for Christmas, 2012. Dämmerung 16:44, January 20, 2012 (UTC)

Adding more info to the load

I'd like to add some released data of Borderlands 2, courtesy of PC gamer/trailer:

Number one: according to PCG, the artic bullymog will have a cinematic intro(Like the bosses from borderlands 1 did) where the bullymog tears through the text.(PGC, january 2012 issue.)

Number two: Bandit killers still seem to sport the same face mask(0:32) although their body armour is less uniform and more ragged.

Three: I can confirm the layout of the party truck, as the back appears to be standing zone while the passenger side is the canon, similar to the lancer's(1:12).

And also, can we please stop the argument over split-screen? News gets fouled. The trailer was from gearbox. If that's really not enough, just say instead that "Borderlands 2 is still in debate whether split-screen is supported or not." 00:50, March 5, 2012 (UTC)

noted. gbx has published that split-screen will not be available for PC Icon.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  03:15, March 5, 2012 (UTC)

ga's role in the (presumed) "story"

guardian angel is hyperion (maybe). handsome jack is hyperion (fact). the GA tasks the new characters with killing jack. what gives? does hyperion want jack dead? was the 4N631 satellite cracked by a mysterious third party as some believe? is the satellite jealous of jack's spiff new floating H moonbase? it's unsurprising that hyperion wants the original vault hunters gone (again) given the typical (mega)corporate thinking of throwing the merc out with the bathwater, but why does the ga want jack taken out?? hopefully gbx's VP of Making Up Crap earns his paycheck this go 'round and, at the least, performs a google search for keyword "plot."
Fryguysigwob 18:55, March 7, 2012 (UTC)

Nobody said it was the guardian angel that wanted him dead. Lillith replaces the guardian angel in this respect. Also, what if handsome jack owned the hyperion corporation in borderlands 1, leading the vault hunters to the vault? Then he could have actual credit for finding the vault. :l 23:20, March 7, 2012 (UTC)

enemy weapons customization?

i went back to the leaked gameplay footage to see if i saw what I thought i saw when i thought i saw it. and yep, that DAHL TEDIORE gyrojet rifle dropped by a bandit and picked up by the player man at 4:35 has a BANDIT nut-and-bolt front sight. are the enemies customizing their own munitions? did a bandit pick up a dahl tediore rifle, see something he didn't like, and tack weld on a new front sight? i, for one, am joy-puking once again.

Right now its looking like its only 2 player offline co-op, but its unsure at this point. ~popqguy

Read somewhere that two player split screen will not supported for the PC or maybe patched later (PC has always modding capabilities). I'd guess that four player system link (xbox 360) will be possible again. Same goes for PC. 18:05, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Pearlescent Weapons in Borderlands 2

Will pearlescent weapons exist in the next installment of Borderlands? I watched a walkthrough in which the player opened a greenish glowing chest chest that contained what appeared to be cyan-coloured weapons. Now if it is this easy to find said colour rarity of weapon, is it is possible they have changed the rarity colour or just plain got rid of the concept of a pearlescent weapons altogether?

That is one possibility; however when you pointed this out you reminded me of Raiden from the Metal Gear Solid series. Perhaps, like Raiden he as a human, or resident of Pandora, that has undergone cybernetic experiments. After all Raiden's feet had a similar shape to them.
Blackwolf1 19:37, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
It seems to me that he is human, though half or fully robotic could be true as well. my guess is that he is possibly a remnent of the Lance assasins, or maybe a Hyperion assasin that defected and joined the other mercenaries like Roland from the first Borderlands. as for the toes, the way they look reminds me of how your feet look if you wear socks with flip-flops. having your big toe in one part of the sock and all the other toes in the rest. looks kind of like a shoe with the same thing going on. just my opinion.

He is humanoid, though most likely not human. He only has four digits per hand. other traits seen so far also suggest he is an alien or robot/android. --Veggienatersml 20:37, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

I have seen that Zero has written a Hiku. The Ninja/Shinobi (a Japanese mercernary/covert agent) use Tabi socks (socks/light shoes with a split seperating the big toe from the rest). Tabi socks would give the impression of 2 toes to the ourside observer. Maybe this theme was extended to the gloves he/she wears where the pinky finger is in the same 'glove finger' as the ring finger which would give the impression of 3 fingers, 1 thumb. Zero appears to simply be a japanese space themed human mercernary. (since we are simply speculating here). Project23 (talk) 04:36, September 28, 2012 (UTC)

Ellie should be added to characters section. She has been confirmed to both exist and have a significant part in the story.

ellie is a non player character and has been added to that category.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  14:24, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Yes she is, and no she hasn't. There's a section in the article titled NPCs, she's not there. I wasn't talking about the category.

Minor fix

Could an admin please change both "Eridian" links to point to the the Eridian Weapons article? Both links are talking about the weapons, not the manufacturer or the race. Cheesedude (talk) 23:46, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

More invincible?

The "Thresher Thrashed" secret achievment has the description "Defeated Terramorphous the Invincible" on the released BL2 achievements! I'm sure we all know what that means! Ironvirus33916sig2 03:11, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

One should never assume, because when you assume, you make an ASS out of U and ME Emoticon_silly.png. It could just be a play on Crawmerax. Either way, sounds like it will be fun. Veggienatersml 03:45, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

I think we should discuss the new world here somewhere just a suggestion

Do we need E-Tech and Eridium?

I'm just suggesting, that considering 'E-Tech' is basically one of the applied uses of Eridium, that it just be added to the Eridium part on the unspecified features.

I didn't want to change it in case there was a logical reason that it was like this, other than to highlight a bit of customisation? 23:27, August 15, 2012 (UTC)

From what I can tell, there's no way to use Eridium in-game to make e-tech weapons. E-tech is just a rare weapon find, much like the Eridian weapons from the first game. Eculc (talk) 21:35, September 23, 2012 (UTC)

Returning Areas

Anyone know if we return to any areas we visited in Borderlands 1?

Paul Hellquist's response to this question here (at 47 mins) was "You'll see". Shiroi Hane (talk) 23:14, September 7, 2012 (UTC)
..but it might interest you to check out the title of track 8 on the OST. Shiroi Hane (talk) 00:01, September 8, 2012 (UTC)


The basic plot as described by Randy here is slightly different to what we currently have - Handsome Jack has found another Vault and, to prevent anyone else opening it first, he is inviting all the potential competition to join him then assassinating them. The currently synposis here does not mention a second vault, and makes it sound like deciding to kill our protagonists was a spur of the moment thing. Shiroi Hane (talk) 13:09, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

  • Randy discusses the basic plot again an hour into the recent [IGN live stream]. The new vault contains some machine that grants great power to whoever opens it, and he wants that to be him. Shiroi Hane (talk) 20:47, September 8, 2012 (UTC)


anyone have anything on what Brick does in Borderlands 2?

ive seen trailers and gameplay featuring the other 3 vault hunters of BL1 but so far brick has been absent from everything. DaWnBrEaKeR (talk) 17:36, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

at the ass end of the 3hour ign livestream with Randy Pitchford shows Brick giving the player missions in Lynchwood.

New Shields

It should be noted that there are all kinds of new shields and not just adaptive shields. The Transformer absorbs bullets and adds them to your backpack and on the badass challenges page mentions "amplify" shields for buffs and "spike" shields to reflect damage.

video of enemy poster

well, so much for vault hunter and loot chest exclusive. thanx GBX! now about the single use key? is bobblehead made out or 70's era air freshener?

Misinformation, please fix it

It seems the gameinformer article said weapons could be bought with Eridium and players could alter their powers, however currently no weapons in the game can be bought with Eridium or upgrade their powers with it so it would probably be best to change said information on the page.

Seamless map?

In the weeks leading up to the release of the game I read a number of sources mentioning the seamlessness of the landscape in Borderlands 2, and a number of the demo videos had people talking about it was well.

The environments for Borderlands will also be seamless, in contrast to the segmented approach from the first game, with the entire world map always in viewing distance when a player is high enough in the world.

But for me the map loads in chunks just like it did in the original. Would I get the "seamless" experience if I had a newer PC with more powerful processors, or did I overestimate the scope what was being promised (ie. its only "seemless" in the sense that the edge-of-map vistas are more cohesive than in the original)?

jameslucas (" " / +) 18:43, September 30, 2012 (UTC)

pretty sure it's just the second one. They say this pretty directly, although it's possible to interpret it differently that intended. "the entire world map always in viewing distance then a player is high enough in the world" meaning that (for example) it's possible to see terramorphus' lair from the hyperion bunker because of its location.

Legendary Storm Front and Dresden Files?

Does anyone else think that the Legendary weapon Storm Front could be a reference to Jim Butcher's Dresden Files? The first book in the series is titled Storm Front and if I remember correctly there's a line about lightning striking twice.  I don't want to give away any more from the book.
