Borderlands 2 Catch-All

Does that include repeater pistols? Hmm...

Although I might add that I am doing just fine without any bee shields. I haven't even ever looted one.

I am playing the game on PC via Steam. Did anyone else suddenly get 10 more golden keys added to their inventory? I looked around the internet and found no info. Perhaps it's related to today's update. However it happened, I'm not complaining.

Do you have to be registered at the gearbox site?

I've been loading the game up about once per week since launch to see if the Badass bug was fixed. Oh joy, it is now. Almost two months after release. Sweet, let's play some Borderlands 2! Oh, I've already moved on and I'm playing other things. More things are coming out?

The real irony is that I choose to play this over Torchlight 2, and don't have time for either now.

Badass bug, you really suck.

cyrax:

I consider BL to be an evergreen title. I barely stopped playing the first before the second was announced! Hit me up if you want to play MP. I'm fairly sure I'll still have one of my toon within 10 levels of where you are.

finally beat terramorphous with a group of 3 lvl 50s and a lvl 39. You'd think the level 39 wouldn't be much use, but just to have an extra body there to slowly bleed out while other folk are running from the respawn point back to the entrance made the difference whereas we three 50s on our own were having trouble. Also deception->kunai death mark->rocket launcher is kind of the bomb against something with a ludicrous life bar like him. My zer0 was taking chunks out of him instead of slivers like everyone else.

Tried farming a Bee shield last night to no avail. I don't think I have the patience to really farm anything in games like these.

I read that it has a 3% drop rate off one of the easiest bosses to farm, but farming isn't for everyone. It's boring as hell.

A run takes like 3 or 4 minutes but after 12 or so runs with nothing worth picking up it gets old.

Finally finished the main story at like level 32 or 33. Very good game. Last fight wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be esp with some of the other fights in the game being a pain. Maybe I'll give TVHM a shot now.

Yeah, it took me about 30 runs to get a level 50. Oddly, it only took about 6-8 runs to get a level 48 and a level 49. The best way to do it is to watch a TV show at the same time.

Before I took this huge break, I was trying to farm the turtle shield off of Blue. I think I ran that about 50 times and never got it.

Thanks Rallick!

I finished 1st playthrough with Zero, pretty much solo as I have to hop on and off frequently. Cant say I liked it much until i took him through the Captain Scarlet DLC then back to the final stretch. Seems I just didn't have the "good" weapons until then.

Running a Mech-gal now and started a Siren, will see what grabs me. Still love the game and the feel.

Awesome, thanks for the code Rallick!

It looked to me that they reverted the keys back to a previous state- because I also was given quite a few when I logged back in. I also noticed a dramatic increase in my badass points. Where it had been at 8500 just two nights previous last night I noticed it was right under 17000 with 76 points to allocate. Maybe there was an issue where my points were properly calculating before- dunno?

GBX awarded extra BAR points and keys to people whose games got bugged. It was a way of making amends.

Sweet! Those extra keys should last me awhile. I had a strict rule to only use a key every 5 levels or so - that might be out the window now.

Chief:

Don't reserve OR use your keys for level 50 stuff. If you need level 50 purple weapons, just hit me up. steam ID is roxlimn2k. Purples are easy to get at level 50. Well, a teeny bit less easy now.

Mr. Torgue is is almost what I expected...

That's interesting, they re-purposed Gaige's twitter feed for Mister Tongue...

Spoiler:

Foreshadowing much?

I dunno if folks remember, but the PC folks found some file names in one of the previous update that hinted at Torgue being the next DLC.

And wouldn't you know:

Yeesh, if they keep pumping out DLC like this, I may never get to Assassin's Creed III.

New enemies, new currency, new weapons, new achievements.

The PS3 trophies also leaked out early too.

Hmmm, I think it's time to order the season pass.

Yeah, we knew about the name of this DLC since about the time the last DLC was released.

Hmm... another arena. And I wonder if that "Board will update in" messages mean random missions.

If by random missions you mean head shot challenges, I'm sold. Cuz that never gets old!

Note: I already bought the season pass.

Well, based on some quotes I read from an IGN UK article, while it is mainly another slaughter dome/Madd Moxxi DLC, they said it was much improved from Borderlands 1, and also included some 'normal' missions outside of the slaughterdome ones.

I've heard it's split about 50/50 between arena and campaign stuff, though the campaign stuff forms a framework around the arena stuff so take that as you will.
