First timer on Borderlands 2. Any tips?
>>
Play a better game.
>>
>>322899887
Do not play without friends. You'll enjoy the game much more multiplayer.
>>
>>322899887
First tip is to fuck off.

Don't get tips. Just play the game. You'll enjoy a blind playthrough MUCH more.
>>
Find golden key codes on a forum or somewhere
If you want to play the most broken class, use the Gunzerker and give no shits
Other than that, just enjoy the game.
>>
>>322900038
/thread
Only tip you will need
>>
Dont use golden keys.

Really whos fucking idea was this?
>>
>>322900164
Do golden keys even give you anything good, i have tons of them, and ive used about 30, but I end up finding better guns throughout the game
>>
>>322899887
>0
>a bigger number than you
Wait, what?
What the fuck?
>>
>>322900038
this
although my first was alone
it was fun afterwards with friends

>>322899990
swallow some niggerdick
>>
>>322900343
The devs are retarded
Maybe they're talking about negative numbers
>>
>>322900338
They can give you good shit but more often than not it's crap.

Save em for level cap, at least, then you'll be rolling on highend loot.

Are you seriously so retarded you don't even get this joke?
>>
>>322899887
Play with friends. Get an acid weapon for the shit ton of loaders. Kreig plus Rubi will make you indestructible if you can melee the enemy
>>
Just play the pre-sequel. It's unfortunately smaller environmentally and that can get to you but they managed to make the game more fun.
>>
>>322901149
Why the fuck would anyone play the pre sequel before playing borderlands 2??
>>
>>322901601
Because the plot to 2 is trash and pre-sequel has enjoyable characters and better humor.
>>
>>322899887
All classes other than the commando are fun.
Gunzerker - gee Bill, TWO rocket launchers?
Siren - shit elemental damage, most broken class.
Sniper - fun to play, but some fights will be Hell for you.
Krieg - incredibly fun, but just like in Zero's case, some fights will be a fucking nightmare (even more so, because it's effectively a full melee class).
Mechromancer - what is accuracy? Get stacks -> get sick damage -> win.

Aside from the lol so randumb shit humor (it has some golden bits though) I found the gameplay to be genuinely fun, so I liked it.
>>
>>322901149
the prequel is even worse than than 2.

just get a refund. seriously.
>>
I started this game too but I dont have any good weapons and money, what should I do? start over?
>>
>>322899990
/thread
>>
>>322904557
good weapons are restricted to legendaries and very specific special weapons. 99% of purples are useless.

just keep killing the same bosses over and over again because that is the only way to get legendaries.

or you could just play a better game.
>>
>>322904557
No point in starting over, just keep killing. Stuff will drop eventually.
>>
>>322905067
what do you mean keep killing the same bossed?
>>
>>322902489
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTZ-q6S5hpU
>>
>>322904557
It's normal, you can try to restart if you want, later on money will literally never be a problem
>>
>>322903813
Don't listen to this guy OP.

Do find someone people to play with, borderlands is always better with friends
>>
>>322905179
Not that guy but you can go back to the area you previously fought a boss in, to fight them again, since most bosses have rare legendary drops. However unless you really want some of those I wouldn't bother in your first playthrough/ normal mode
>>
>>322905179
i means kill bosses over and over agan until you get something good fucking retard. or, you could just get the cheat code for golden keys.
>>
>>322902489
That image is pretty funny
>>
>>322899887
playing solo? play commando. the turret will be like a 2nd player who just doesn't move around. it's nice to have some fire support on boss-fights after you get the rocket volley ability.
>>
>>322905179
Bosses respawn after a while, and have a higher chance of dropping legendary gear.
>>
>>322899887
uninstall

game is fucking trash

you might think the game isn't right now, but you'll be disappointed if you keep playing
>>
Hope you don't like cool good-all-around assault rifles.

Even if you find a decent one it will either have shit accuracy, spread, rate of fire or you will just spend more time reloading than shooting.
>>
>>322905179
legendary item drops are tied to a specific boss. there is a chance to find them off regular enemies, chests, vendors but the chance of that happening is like 1% or even less.

in 3 different playthroughs i have never seen a single legendary in a vending machine. i have never had any normal enemy drop a legendary. i think i have only seen one legendary item appear in a chest. all my legendaries came from griding bosses. and you don't get them 100% from bosses. OH NO. you have to kill them for about 50 times.
>>
>>322905519
all assault rifles are shit
>>
>>322905574
Fifty times? What kind of shitty game is this?
>>
>>322905519
Forgot about that. Stay away from assault Rifles (SMGs are the same thing but better) and E-tech anything but pistols . You'll get one and find out why.
>>
>>322901880
borderlands 2 has great carathers and a great villan, really enyoyd Handsome jack even if the plot wasn't that good
>>
you'll miss weapon proficiency

smgs suck

also half of the game is fighting robots
>>
>>322905674
yeah. i mostly keep with pistols and shotguns. why the fuck did they have to remove the revolvers?
>>
>>322905758
You get to enjoy Jack more in the pre-sequel
>>
>>322900325
>Not using a profile editor for unlimited golden keys

LOL
>>
>>322905495
they don't respawn. you have to exit the game and fight them again.

>>322905694
play borderlands 1. the story is boring as fuck but the gameplay is fun. the DLCs are really great too.

Gearbox's idea of harder difficulty is making enemies ridiculous bullet sponges. This is different from the first in that they kill you in two hits as well.
Damage scaling is ridiculous
Dahl weapons got screwed this game
Kill a character with no buildup
season pass that doesn't include all the dlc for the game
most of the dlc pales in comparison to the first
shock weapons are the only practical weapons in TVHM
MMO level drop rates for certain items/customizations
Gearbox nerfs the bee because it gave people a decent chance against the bullshit of TVHM
Gearbox hates people who dupe items, considers them e-terrorists
the sinkhole for money embezzled from Aliens: Colonial Marines
>>
>>322905694
You're honestly better off playing the presequel. Legentaries are still pretty rare honestly, but other weapons are worth it too. Also, I got 2 of the Legentaries I found in the shops, so that's something.
>>
>>322901880
the plot to 2 wasn't entirely shit. it was just odd as a sequel to borderlands because it almost had nothing to do with it.

borderlands had an interesting backstory that they just simply abandoned.
>>
>>322905318
The first one yes, the second one got a refund after 20 minutes.

Uninstalled the entire game right fucking there.
>>
>>322905694
He doesn't mean you will have to fight them 50 times specifically, only that drop rates are small even for boss items, so you could fight a boss once and get the legendary or fight him 200 times and not drop it. Personally I never had to fight a boss more than like 10 times but some people are unlucky on this, I have no doubt

who needs tips?

that game is piss-easy

if you die you just respawn and you don't lose any progress

what a shitty faggot game

maybe you can hel[ me I'm stuck in this part after I got into sanctuary and went after some infiltrators. I killed the first few, but now there's a guy with a laser gun and he pwns me every time

>GET Y quests
>Kill X quests
>daily limit raidbosses had on release.
>Removed weapon specialization in favour of the retarded Badass system
>Gunplay feels very shallow and unresponsive which is terrible for a game that sells itself around guns
>Guns are once again just a few variations with millions of reskins and slight damage differences
>All of the characters are completely forgettable
>Story is just as shallow as in the first game
>Claptrap is horribly written in an attempt to cash in on his popularity from the first game
>Droprate is horrendous
>the best guns are from raid bosses

to be fair, that was before he became Lord Cuckington Cucksworth of Cuckingham Palace.

Do you mean the secondary mission where you kill the hyperion spies? If that's the case, I'll assume you are talking about the final spy with the shotgun in a large room. Don't fight him alone if he's tough for you

Maximum overcuck, terrible writer, literal manchild. He's a pathetic excuse for a man. His wife took his WiiU when they broke up.

So... should we make some groups to play Bordermemes 2 together?
>>
>>322906208
The OP wants to play borderlands, else he wouldn't have bought Borderlands 2. I'm giving him a less shitty alternative to have Borderlands game play. All you're doing is shitting on the game. Who's really not helping here?

>>322906686
You can just make your "world" - or whatever it's called - public in the main menu, I think you can also do it ingame with an option in the pause menu. That will make other players be able to join you, if you aren't playing with a pirated version obviously
>>
>>322906793
Different guy here.
Borderlands Pre-Sequel is infinitely worse than 2 for 2 major reasons:
1, the writing is even worse
2, there is no replayability
To each their own, but the only reason to play Borderlands 1.5 is for the better characters, but there's no content to enjoy with them.
>>
>>322906793
the presequel is even shittier than 2. i hate people like you. stop forcing people to buy shit games in the hopes that they might have fun. fun should be guaranteed. i am done arguing with you.

>>322907004
The writing wasn't ermagherd great, but I wouldn't call it absolute garbage. As for replay ability, however, you might have a point, but I wouldn't know. I got a bug right after the final boss that made me almost completely invincible no matter who I picked, so I really can't judge.
