“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler is a Thanksgiving-themed DLC for Borderlands 2. It was released Tuesday, November 26th 2013. It is the second of three planned "Headhunter" packs that are all scheduled for release by the end of 2013.
The DLC, along with the other "Headhunter" packs, cost less than previous story add-ons and are smaller content offerings than the four previous story DLC packs that have been released.
The level of Gluttony Gulch is set when first visited, but in Normal Mode is at least 15 and at most 35.
The Vault Hunters travel to Mr. Torgue's Hunger for Violence Extravaganza in Gluttony Gulch after receiving a ticket from Mr. Torgue. They then witness Torgue "interviewing" the only person to have survived an encounter with the Wattle Gobbler. The unfortunate captive, who is tied up and gagged, is misheard by Torgue to have insulted Ellie's weight and is destroyed. Torgue then "whispers" that the Wattle Gobbler is invulnerable, but Torgue likes the Vault Hunters and wants to eat the Gobbler, so Torgue hatches a plan to poison the Gobbler.
The hunters fight through kitchens and fall-inspired areas in an effort to prepare, poison, and cook a skag-gravy meal for the Gobbler.
Hampered by "tributes" instructed by Torgue's board of executives to kill the Vault Hunters, the Vault Hunters fight and slay the weakened Wattle Gobbler after it exits a giant Horn of Plenty.
After the main mission is turned in, Torgue asks the Vault Hunters to speak to his grandma, who is a huge fan. Grandma Flexington tells stories in exchange for a single dollar and, if the second story is endured, offers a Torgue rocket launcher.
