The new Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith DLC is now available for free for all owners of the game. It contains a brand new location and a ton of new weapons, including Legendary and Effervescent.

But not all of them are equally good and worth looking out for. That's why we've compiled a tier list of the best new weapons from the Commander Lilith DLC with a few tips on how to find them.

Toothpick

  • Manufacturer: Dahl
  • Type: Assault Rifle
  • Element: Incendiary

If you look at this Effervescent assault rifle's stats, you will notice that it has 100% Accuracy, which is mind-blowing.

You can pick this weapon up from Sand Worms in The Burrow or from Queen Sandworm during the second Vaughn quest "The Hunt is Vaughn."

Toothpick is a part of the Writhing Deep set, which also contains a relic and a shield that are capable of making the weapon even stronger.

Peak Opener

  • Manufacturer: Torgue
  • Type: Assault Rifle
  • Element: Shock

Peak Opener is another Effervescent assault rifle with the same amount of damage as the Toothpick, taking into consideration the double damage. However, the accuracy is a bit lower and since it is a part of the Digistruct set, its use is restricted to Digistruct Peak.

Other than that, you won't find a more brutal weapon in the game than this one. It consumes ammo like crazy, but the damage output is simply outstanding.

Amigo Sincero

  • Manufacturer: Jakobs
  • Type: Sniper Rifle
  • Element: N/A

Amigo Sincero or True Friend is the ultimate sniper rifle, which can be obtained during the "BFFFs" quest.

In the similar fashion to the infamous Trespasser, this weapon bypasses all enemy shields and deals damage directly to the enemy's health pool.

Another cool part about Amigo is that it will spawn with an attached scope and blade, unlike many other weapons in the game that spawn without any attachments whatsoever.

Overcompensator

  • Manufacturer: Hyperion
  • Type: Shotgun
  • Element: Shock, Incendiary, Corrosive, Slag, or None

There is no better choice for close combat than a shotgun with gargantuan amounts of damage. Overcompensator is a beast of a shotgun that can be obtained as a reward for the third Vaughn quest "Chief Executive Overlord."

One of the most exciting features of this weapon besides damage is the random chance of magazine auto-refill, which may occur while you're shooting at your enemies.

This feature may not be the most reliable one, but once or twice it'll save your character's life for sure.

World Burn

  • Manufacturer: Torgue
  • Type: Rocket Launcher
  • Element: Incendiary

The only effervescent rocket launcher in the game is definitely a weapon you should look out for. It can be dropped by Lt. Bolson in Dahl Abandon. 

The explosion from the rockets is so wide that it can evaporate every single enemy hidden within a building or any type of cover with walls.

The damage output for each explosion is huge, and that's why it's called World Burn. It is also recommended to use the rocket launcher as an escape cover fire.

Hot Mama

  • Manufacturer: Jakobs
  • Type: Sniper Rifle
  • Element: Incendiary

Hot Mama is another great sniper rifle, which can be dropped by Lt. Hoffman in Mt. Scarab Research Center. Just be careful when dealing with Lt. Hoffman, as he will try to kill you with Hot Mama as soon as he drops it.

If you manage to get it and stay alive, then you'll have another excellent Effervescent weapon in your arsenal.

Hot Mama can be used both as a sniper rifle and as a bolt action rifle with an elemental capacitor. However, you will probably need to attach a Dahl stock to it in order to reduce the immense recoil.

Unicornsplosion

  • Manufacturer: Torgue
  • Type: Shotgun
  • Element: Explosive

If you're familiar with the Swordsplosion shotgun from Borderlands 2, then you will know what the Unicornsplosion is. The only difference is that this weapon shoots full-sized unicorns that explode into rainbows that deal a ton of damage.

Unicornsplosion can be obtained by feeding Butt Stallion while wearing the Mysterious Amulet in The Backburner.

Mysterious Amulet can be purchased from Mr. Miz during the mission The Amulet that starts in the Lair of Infinite Agony, which is a part of the Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep DLC.

Well you've heard it folks, Borderlands and Borderlands 2 has hit the weekly Humble Bundle, and that means it's time for me to pick it up and try it out. Having not been a fan of first-person-shooter games, I never thought to give Borderlands a look, but for the low price of $5.52, I just can't say no.

What a Jaw-Dropping Deal

Humble you did it again. During this week's Humble Borderlands Bundleroughly $146 dollars worth of Borderlands games and DLCs are available, along with a whopping 75% off coupon for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel through the Humble store. All Borderlands fans will enjoy that price reduction from the large amount of $60 for the game, down to $15.

Borderlands 2 Takes Tiny Tina to New Heights https://www.gameskinny.com/5nwez/borderlands-2-takes-tiny-tina-to-new-heights https://www.gameskinny.com/5nwez/borderlands-2-takes-tiny-tina-to-new-heights Mon, 19 Aug 2013 00:09:56 -0400 Stephanie Tang

"Counting down. Ten! Nine! --I got bored, we're doing it NOW!"

Ever since she exploded (literally) onto the scene in the early hours of Gearbox’s Borderlands 2, Tiny Tina was an instantly memorable NPC – as well-known for her lazy eye as for her wacky rap songs. (“Climb the pipe to the train, or you'll go insane. Wut wut. That's a rap song I wrote.”) She does not utter a single dull line in the entire game, to such an extent that her character, and Andy Burch, her creator, were accused of racism.

Thankfully both he and Gearbox stood by the now iconic character, because, as he so well puts it, “I’m just not convinced that a character using lingo like badonkadonk/crunk is inherently racist. If I’m wrong I would like to know why.”

He also did say at the same time that if she really managed to offend people, he'd change her. With the prospect of the "Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep" DLC looming, this came as a troubling thought to those of us who had absolutely no problem with her crazy, and who were genuinely excited for more Tina. 

And I wasn't disappointed.  

Borderlands 2 is a testament to the ideal that nothing is sacred; not dignity, not modesty... and, like George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones counterpoint, not even beloved characters. 

For all that Borderlands 2 received a great deal of flack about flat, uninteresting playable characters compared to the ones that came before, Gearbox also managed to inject a very real sense of emotional impact in certain pivotal scenes in the game.

Without spoiling the storyline for those who haven't yet played (how dare you), there are moments amidst all the over-the-top guns, Moxxie's breasts overflowing out of her jacket, and juvenile humor that actually manage to hit home and leave you feeling... empty. 

Mordecai's very real cry of anguish hit me and hit me hard. 

"Dragon's Keep" does that to you too.

While your characters are ostensibly caving in the faces of Hyperion agents, the original Borderlands cast and Tina settle in for a game of Bunkers & Badasses, the Pandora incarnation of D&D.

Throughout the tale of thrilling heroics within a magical world in the hands of a crazy kid, you battle with pixies and tree monsters, raise the dead at the behest of another dead guy, and stick Ellie in Leia's metal bikini. It's glorious.

But it's also sad.

Because also running through the same magical world, you listen to Tina's utter inability to accept that someone she loves is gone and is never coming back.

And that's pretty real too. 

"I KNOW!"

The scene in which she actually faces her demons is a little too much to feel truly heartfelt, but it is sweet, and I love that for a game taking criticism for one-dimensional characters, Borderlands 2 could pull Tina out of the Gearbox and make her amazing. 

I don't just play for the fart jokes and Moxxie's innuendos, you know. And if you've been avoiding Borderlands 2 for just those reasons, well, I invite you to take another look. There's more there than you'd think.

New Details for Upcoming Borderlands 2 DLC https://www.gameskinny.com/rcnua/new-details-for-upcoming-borderlands-2-dlc https://www.gameskinny.com/rcnua/new-details-for-upcoming-borderlands-2-dlc Mon, 22 Jul 2013 00:03:59 -0400 Stephanie Tang

"Sup sucka?"

Earlier this month, Gearbox's Randy Pitchford outed that the wildly successful Borderlands 2 DLC "Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep" would not be the last piece of downloadable content for the game.

Yesterday during the Gearbox Software PAX Australia panel, the first details for the game's fifth expansion were announced. (Additionally, they dropped an outline of more feature updates coming up... and coming up free!)

The new DLC pack is the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 and adds 11 extra levels to the current cap plus a new Digistruct Peak Challenge. Those players looking for even more of a challenge will be able to over level the game, making content more difficult for advanced players. 

Personally I'm glad they made that only an option... Borderlands-style overleveling runs high to tedium. Emptying your full capacity of bullets into one enemy again and again and again is not more challenging, just annoying and boring. 

No release date has been announced yet, but Pitchford confirmed that it will be released sometime before October 31, and it will cost $5. Note that this pack is NOT included in the Season Pass. You will not need any of the previous DLC to be able to play.

Free stuff!

Don't worry, even though Season Pack content has petered out, Gearbox isn't out for the last action money grab yet! There is a new planned (free!) update to Borderlands 2 which is slated to increase the maximum amount of ammo players can carry, increase the total number of bank slots, and boost inventory capacity. All upgrades can be purchased using Eridium.

As someone who mained Zero and has a huge personal preference for using sniper rifles, the max ammo increase is crazy good news to me. While ammo stops being such a huge issue with any of the other guns pretty quickly as you start buying up the base game's capacity upgrades, it is simply taken as read that you are going to run out of sniper ammo when the fighting starts, no matter whether or not you have a relic that increases your max sniper ammo (which I do)... especially with a rifle with a super high rate of fire (which I do like). 

Also on the list of upcoming DLC packs is T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest. It is unclear whether or not the content will be free, but I am leaning on the side that yes, it will be. It will hearken back to the "The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned" DLC for the original Borderlands. Players can look forward to a new boss battle against pumpkin monster, Jacques O'Lantern.

I will be very, very disappointed if there is not a single reference to The Nightmare Before Christmas. Gearbox, you gave me a metal bikini and stuck it on the best successor to Carrie Fisher you could ever have come up with. Keep it coming, keep it coming!

And these aren't going to be the last!

If you were worried that all we were going to get were a few some fixes for replaying the base game and some original Borderlands DLC rehash, there's still cause for hope. 

Pitchford confirmed that while some of the DLCs were in development since the release of Borderlands 2, beyond those announced at PAX, the team is aiming to release one or two more in the future. 

I'm pretty excited.

I was a huge fan of the original Borderlands but it had its long, interminable, relentlessly dull stretches of running and shooting the same damn faces and running more. And while I still bought all the DLC for the original game and played them through, they were largely unmemorable ("General Knoxx" aside) and not all that fun. 

With Borderlands 2 base game, I did not run into these problems. Not that I didn't find moments where the back and forth between areas got boring, but these stretches were much shorter and I did not often find myself falling asleep from gameplay alone. The same can be said about the DLC. While some were better than others ("Torgue" >>>> "Pirate's Booty" though "Tiny Tina" still reigns supreme) they were all fun, memorable, and packed with stories and characters that had me snickering all the way through. 

Now you're giving me more? Oh yes, Gearbox. Oh yes.
