|How to: To score a critical hit on a human, shoot it in the head. With a sniper rifle this usually kills instantly For a Skag, shoot it in the face when its mouth is open. This varies depending on the type. For the pups, shoot them while they roar at you. For adults, quickly shoot them while they jump at you. For the spitters, shoot their mouths while they fire their poison projectile at you. Critical hits are easiest at close range with a shotgun or scattergun.|

|Gauntlet (NES) reference [Easter Egg]||98%|

|Easy Escape After Defeating Sledge||98%|

|New Haven Chest Run||98%|
| Description: Video showing how to get to several weapon crates in New Haven.|
|Easy 20,00 EXP||96%|
|As soon as you are able to get a vehicle, find a safe place away from enemy spawn points and find a way to keep the trigger held down (tape? rubber band?). Just walk away for a few hours and after you have unloaded 100,000 shots from the vehicle you will get 20,000 exp.|
| Location: Treacher’s Landing|
Head South East from the start of the map. You will need to take out a few bandits in a small gathering of huts but keep to the South East. You will find a red weapons crate up on a ledge. This was intended to be able to get to once you looped around the map and were on your way out. There is a way to get to the ledge. On the right side is a cabinet to open. Jump on top then locate a post along the fence. Jump to the post. From here you can jump onto the ledge with the red weapons crate. Now continue South East. You will encounter a hut with two bandits. Keep heading South East along the waters edge. Once you pass a large boulder, you will see a ship. There is another red weapons crate on the ship. You can repeat this by going back to the save point at the beginning of the map and exit once and restart by loading your character again. Then the weapons crates will be reset again.
|Easy experience & weapon proficiency||96%|
| Description: Use the following cheat to get easy experience & weapon proficiencies, as well as more weapons and cash by selling loot from dead enemies.|
How to: For this to work, make sure you do not kill everyone. Leave one enemy alive (preferably the little ones), otherwise the quest ends. Also, do not die. You will lose lots of your hard earned money. Exit out (the game saves automatically) after killing almost all of the enemies and collecting all the sellable items desired. Reload your game and re-rampage in the arena. When you exit, the game saves all your information. Reload your game. Once you are in "the middle of nowhere" you will eventually get a Thunderdome/Arena type quest called "Circle Of Slaughter". You can go into the game, enter the arena, and slaughter everyone except one enemy. *** There are three rounds, with the last one called" Final Round". Do not finish it if you want to repeat your work. You will earn easy experience, weapons proficiency, find nice loot, and money from selling all the items you do not want.
|Hidden rare weapon chest in Rust Commons West||96%|
| Description: Walkthrough for a hidden chest in rust commons west, with a high rare drop rate.|
|Extra item space||96%|
|How to: Create a new "bank" character for use in Co-op mode. When you want to store an item, start a Co-op game with your main character and the "bank" character. Transfer the items to be stored to the "bank" character until you need them, then transfer them back.|
|Defeating "The Destroyer" Boss Easy||96%|
|This creature is from another dimension and is massive with a health level to match. This creature is a mountain of flesh with several tentacles that can re-spawn as the battle progresses. The creature has a blue lighted cave that seems to be its eye. Most of the tentacles have a large glowing orbs about half way down their length. Shooting the orbs will destroy the tentacles. Start the battle by running toward the creature and then hiding behind a pillar that is located to the right or left just out of range for the tentacle’s reach. From here take out all but one tentacle that you can see easy from that point. Take out the ones you cannot see easy by peeking around and taking shots at the orbs but return to your hiding point. This pillar will shield you from missile like attacks and later from the eye that shoots a beam weapon. If you get reduced to zero health, then you can take out one of the orbs on the tentacle that you can see easy to be revived before you get killed and have to respawn. It is like killing another enemy! This was the reason to keep one tentacle. If you do get killed, the creature recovers all health but you respawn in front of the creature and again you can run to your piller of protection hiding place. A few times in the battle the tentacles will spawn and you have to take them out again. The tentacles are the source for the missile type weapon it attacks with. As you reduce the number of tentacles, it also reduces the about of missles flying at you. With the tentacles nearly gone now you can focus your attack at the mouth/tongue and its eye for critical shoot. Just continue this process when the tentacles respawn. Having weapons that have unlimited ammo or having ones that create ammo is a great help with the massive health level this Boss Has. Happy Hunting!|
|New Haven: Hidden house with Rider gun||96%|
| Description: When you obtain (do not complete) the quest "Another Piece Of The Puzzle", you can enter a blue house in New Haven. An elevator door opens up, leading to random loot, level 30 Raider Mutants, and always one of the weapons is a gun named "Rider". Its stats usually vary slightly each time you get one. The weapon is only located in this house. The weapon's "manufacturer" is "Gearbox" (the game's developer), as opposed to an in-game company such as Dahl, Hyperion, etc. *** When this location is used with the others in New Haven for the "Unlimited guns and money" trick, it really pays off.|
|Easy shooting rounds challenges||96%|
|How to: Get into a vehicle spawned with a machine gun and not the rocket launcher. Using a rubber band, get L2 + R2 PlayStation3 or LT + RT Xbox 360 held. *** Make sure the controllers are connected to the port and not in wireless mode as this will take some time. All the game to idle for about 24 hours.|
|Berserker Speed Exploit||96%|
|Make sure you are in a fight with more than one enemy and your health is extremely low (10-20). Activate Berserker just before you enter Fight For Your Life! Mode, then kill someone to gain a Second Wind. If done properly, you should be able to run as fast as Brick can in Berserker mode AND you will be able to fire your weapons. *** you are not able to sprint while using this, but why would you need to anyway? Activating his Berserker mode again and finishing it, OR dying will cancel the effect.|
|How to: To make a copy of any item you will need a cooperative partner in a multiplayer game. Simply drop what you want to make a copy of on the floor, exit the game without saving, leaving your friend free to grab it. When you return, you will have your copy of the weapon still, and your friend can hand you the other. This works on all guns, shields, and class mods, and can be done as many times as necessary.|
|Programmer messages [Easter Egg]||96%|
|Location: Examine the wall in the cell that Tannis is trapped inside.|
|Item Storage using an Alternate Character||96%|
|An effective, but annoying, way to store your extra stuff is to create an alternate character that is only for holding your extra stuff. Just create a new character, load a co-op game with both your main character and your new level 1 character and give them the items you want to put up. Log back in to your level 1 character and give the items back to your main character when you need them. This can be really useful when you find weapons and items that are above your level, or are saving them to give to a friend's character.|
|Quick Rare Weapons and Money||95%|
| This will show you where and how to get quick money and rare weapons. This is also good is you are trying to unlock the achievement that requires you to have 1,000,000 dollars.|
| Description: In Borderlands some weapons have an elemental effect. These are usually very useful but there are drawbacks. Enemies might have special resistant shields or an elemental animal will naturally resist what you shoot it with. Here is a rundown of each elemental effect:|
Eridian - When you find an Eridian weapon, try shooting an enemy. Sometimes extra effects not mentioned in the description will occur. The 10101 Cannon is a good example of a Shock/Explosion combination element.
Fire - When you tag an enemy with fire they take gradual damage until they die or it goes out. Fire damages enemies more if they're shield is gone. Additionally, enemies tend to freak out and lose accuracy when burning.
Shock - Shock damage is like the reverse of fire. It deals an incredible amount of damage to an enemy's shield but loses effectiveness once they're down to their health meter. Also, enemies do not usually panic when shocked.
Acid - Possibly the best all-around element. Acid damage easily eats through armored opponents (like Spiderants and Crimson Lance soldiers) and can spread to multiple enemies if they happen to touch each other while panicking. The only drawbacks to it are that Acid-type enemies are about 90% immune to it and if you try Iron-sight aiming the acid splash from your gun-muzzle can throw off your aim.
Explosive - Not so much an element as a bonus. Randomly when you shoot an enemy with a bullet from an explosion-type gun it will explode and deal extra damage relative to the weapon's base damage. Try to aim for groups.
|Sucker Born Every Minute Achievement/Trophy||95%|
|How to: The description for the Sucker Born Every Minute Achievement/Trophy says "Paid for a worthless tour of the world's largest bullet." Go go the huge bullet and there should be a building closest to the bullet. There will be arrows pointing to a box with a $ sign on it. Simply activate the prompt here to get the Achievement/Trophy.|
|New Haven: Secret Vendor||95%|
|How to unlock: Notice the garage door across from the normal weapons vendor in New Haven. There is a hidden vendor behind it. To get the door to open, try fast travelling to the gun machines in New Haven, Rust Commons West, and Middle of Nowhere. Return to New Haven and the garage door might be open.|
|Config file changes||94%|
| *** This procedure involves editing a game file so best to create a backup copy first.|
How to: Use a text editor to edit the "WillowGame.ini" file in the "My DocumentsMy GamesBorderlandsWillowGameConfig" directory.
| *** Alter game files at your own risk and always make backups! Go to the game folder (My DocumentsMy GamesBorderlandsWillowGameConfig) and open WillowGame.ini in a text editor.|
Search for bDemiGodMode and change it to bDemiGodMode=true.
Your health will never decrease below 1!.
|Gain Levels & Money Before Entering||94%|
|Description: In the first scene, when you are getting the tour with the scrap robot, follow him all the way through to the small campsite with the car up on the lift next to the burning tires. Collect all the loot (guns, money) along the way and kill all of the guys. Once everyone is dead simply pause the game and go to exit. It will save your character (level & loot) and start you at the very beginning upon loading your game. You can repeat this as many times as you'd like!|
|Faster Firing Rate||94%|
|How to: Weapons with exceedingly slow firing rates (i.e. powerful sniper rifles) can be made less laggy if you melee after each shot. This will reset the firing rate timer, allowing you to instantly fire again.|
|Quick Money and Items||94%|
| Want purple and orange items without having to kill a single enemy? Once you get to "New Haven," head to the save/transport post near "Scooter" and save your game. Now, there are 2 red chests and 3 silver chest in town:4 of them on rooftops, and one that the claptrap rescue opens for you. Just loot them all, keep what you want, sell what you do not want and then save your game. Log off, then log back in to repeat the process. Check all the vending machines each time as they will offer great items as well.|
Here is a rundown of the loot route from at the save/transport post near Scooter:
Red Chest #1 - On the roof of the building directly right of the save post. Go to the side with the yellow barrel, jump few times and you are there.
Silver Chest #1 - From the save post, turn directly left and go up the stairs, keep going in the same direction, cross the wood plank and then jump the railing to the other building. Turn a slight right around the corner.
Red Chest #2 - from Silver Chest#1:some tricky jumps, but not too hard. Simply look out to the red tarp hanging over a little platform and make a running jump to land on the tarp. Then turn around till you see the Red Chest, make another jump (not too high or you will get caught on the red tarp over the chest and fall off).
Silver Chest #2 - After completing the Claptrap Rescue this Silver Chest will be in a little shed across the courtyard from the Bounty Board (you just have to crouch to get in there).
Silver Chest #3 - From the save post go forward and go up the stairs where the dollar sign and arrow are. Hop on top of the washing machine, then on top of the roof with the big antenna. The Silver Chest is behind it.
|Old Haven: Secret "Bandit Treasure" quest||94%|
|Description: Fast travel to Old Haven and follow the left wall after you get in to reach a pile of dead bandits. Notice the glowing bandit or glowing key nearby that starts the quest.|
|Middle of Nowhere: "Green Thumb" quest||94%|
|Description: To get the Green Thumb quest, fast travel to the Middle of Nowhere Bounty Board. Get a car from Scooter's and drive to the right. Notice the small shack with big plants around it. Talk to the man leaning against the shack tp get the quest.|
|Rider Sniper Rifle||93%|
| Description: In New Haven there there are two hidden chests.|
When you receive the quest to enter Trash Coast, head to New Haven. Head toward the blue shack (below the area where the repair kit is). Stand near the door and it will open. Ride the elevator down and to the basement. Defeat the Psychos and open the red chest to find the Rider. Rider is a unique sniper rifle manufactured by Gearbox, the maker of Borderlands. This weapon, along with other details in the room (a trash pile Christmas tree and a grisly leg lamp) are references to the movie "A Christmas Story."
|New Game +||93%|
|Complete the game to unlock a New Game + mode. Some items and stats will carry over into the new game and enemies will be tougher.|
|Quick Gun Reloads||93%|
|During a reload, melee as soon as the cartridge is removed or new rounds are being inserted. The gun will complete reloading instantly instead of the normal full process.|
|Hidden weapon crate & money crates||93%|
|How to unlock: When you get off the bus at the beginning, look to your left past the claptrap. You will see a broken down gas station. When you can move, inspect the building for several money crates. Jump on top of the building to find a weapon chest.|
|Unlimited Guns & Money||92%|
|How to: Find a respawning weapons crate. For example, in New Haven, there are 5 weapon crates that respawn each time you load the game. Three are on the roofs (above the truck stop, west staircase over the bar, and above the west gate by jumping from canopy). The repaired claptrap opens another crate behind some steel plates, and there is one more weapon crate north east behind a junk hill under a large canvas canopy. *** There are a few bandits and aliens that spawn here. Collect the contents of the crates, quit the game, resume and collect them again. Repeat this until you get your desired weapon and sell the excess guns to get as much money as desired.|
|More Inventory Slots||92%|
| *** Alter game files at your own risk and always make backups! Go to the game folder (C:Program Files (x86)2K GamesGearbox SoftwareBorderlandsWillowGameConfig) and open DefaultGame and look for this:|
Change X to your desired amount of slots (default 12)
|Fresh of the bus chest||100%|
|When you start the game, got to a building just off to your right. go behind it go up the back stair case and jump on the engine thing then after you jumped on the engine jump another time and you on a roof with BUT loads of loot + a chest with weapons|
|Easy money and weapons||100%|
| This works great for needing money or weapons. Go to the Crimson Enclave area and start killing all the lancers at each tower and open up the chests. Once you picked up all the gear you want to sell, head back to the vendors and sell all the items you don't need. After that Quit the game and reload the file again and keep repeating this and if your lucky, you might even find an Eridian weapon. |
Hint: this trick also works great when you start a split screen and on play through 2 as well.
|Skip time limit for general knoxx's secret armory||83%|
|Alright when you enter the code to get past the door just after you killed general knoxx you will enter a room filled with red walls. You will see boxes behind the "walls". At the beginning of that room you will see a kind of indent just before the room widens. Up go to the right on that indent and crouch now follow the indent you will fall through. CONGRATULATIONS! you now have unlimited time in the armory there are guns, guns and more guns all in crates. Hope this helps.|
|Amazingly Easy Levels and Weapon Proficiencies (for Hunter)||75%|
|Works best with Hunter Class after maxing (or at least leveling up in) your Trespass skill (the one that allows you to go through shields). After beating the game the first time, you will be able to go to the Eridian Promontory. Make sure you have a good gun (duh) and go Guardian hunting. They are mostly shields with very little health, so if you can go through their shields (Trespass), then they are cake. They will always be a level or two above you, and they give a hecka lot experience, and weapon proficiencies. When you go through it all, just leave and come back and do it again. Happy Leveling!|
|Easy way to kill " The Destroyer" final boss.||70%|
| Easy way to kill "The Destroyer" final boss.|
Right, there's no doubt for any of you game lovers that this final boss battle can be very tricky to pull off. So Here's an easier way to avoid throwing your controller at the T.V.
Use a strong sniper rifle equiped with fire or explosion capability.
Carry at least 3-4 full health packs.
Keep hold of Sledge''s shotgun, (GO BACK AND KILL HIM AGAIN TO GET THIS HE'S IN THE MINES LEVEL)
Carry lots of shotgun ammo.
At the start, quickly take out the tenticles with the sniper rifle running left and right to avoid the projectiles, then hurry right up to the top left and get as close to the boss as you can, get out Sledge's shot gun, this gun is extreamily powerful close up, the best in the game.
Start shooting away at the body bottom of the boss,
Now if you do this quickly enough the boss should grow some extra large mass at the base, if you are close enough still then this mass will protect you against the projectiles from the tenticles. Keep on using the shotgun at the body when your right up against it, crouch also for extra protection.
You will be able to off load around 60 rounds of shotgun into the body (forget about the eye) doing this will take a bit of health off each time and eventually it will die and you will be relieved!
Regards.... The Judge.
|First weapon crate||67%|
|Once you get off the bus at the start of the game you will see a house go to the back of the house and jump on top of it there should be a crate of weapons and two safes full of cash or ammo.|
|Fyer stone ester egg||67%|
|Go to the gun shop in fyerstone go outside there be boxes jump on them and then jump on the ruff you will see a gree claptrap but you cant get to him|
|Duplicate an item!||60%|
|In a co-op game, find the item you wish to duplicate, drop it on the ground, and exit the game without saving. Get your friend to pick it up, then come back to the game. When you return, you will find the item still on the ground where you left it while your friend has the same item. You can repeat this over and over until you have as many of the item as you want!|
|Get a sniper rifle and jump onto the side of the walkway going up to the pit.have your friend set the bait and when scogzilla comes out he will stop and open and close his mouth shoot him in the throat for critical hits|
|New haven secret||50%|
|Either before of after you kill the big rakk hive go to new haven if you know where the gun shop is go right walk a little youll see this buliding go to it and knife the handle youll get the BB gun from the christmas story|
|Unlimited Weapons and Money||40%|
| Just like in the PS3 or X360 game, if you find an area with a lot of crates, collect all the goodies in them then save and exit the game. When you re-enter the game the crates will once again have items in them for you to collect. Keep what you want and sell the other items for cash.|
This can be done as often as you want.
| Alien equivalent of rocket launchers. They shoot a ball of energy that explodes on impact with an unkonwn elemental effect. Although it appears to be a shock effect, this may be a unique elemental type of its own. These balls fizzle out after some distance and are slow moving, making them harder for taking out moving targets. Variants of the gun can fire faster balls. |
Although it has an unlimited amount of ammo and requires no reloading, it has a limited amount of energy that slowly recharges after each use. Eridian guns can fire at most 2-10 shots before requiring a recharge.
This particular gun's red text, "010011110100110101000111", is a binary code representing the ASCII for the letters "OMG", short for "Oh my god!"
|How to destroy the final boss||22%|
|Get any good shock weapons to take down it's shield then after you shoot the tentacles from its head then go behind it after big tentacles pop use fast fire weapons and crouch|
|Cheep Healing (Posted By Tivis)||14%|
|In shop with the bus driver from the start of the geme throw a healling gernade and it will heal you fulley you can also use them on people not just opponets this is a quick cheep way to heal|
|Avoid dying and throwing money away.||13%|
| When you go into survival mode upon death, if you don't manage to get a 2nd chance then quickly exit the game just before death, save and restart (very quick process). By doing this you will avoid paying the respawning cost, which increases everytime you die. If like me you die a lot! then this is a definate must practice especially for the very end boss because you will die at some point!|
