4 Things Every Gamer Should Do In Borderlands 2

Gearbox Software’s latest game is one of the best open world experiences you’ll get this year. With cool new environments, new classes and weapons, and the next segment of the enthralling story comes a game that no one should pass up. After spending some time with the game here are 4 things every gamer should do in Borderlands 2.

  1. Explore Pandora Till You Die
  2. I know I said this in my other 4 Things Every Gamer Should Do article, but hear me out. If you just go out into the world of Pandora and explore literally until you die, you’ll be surprised what you find.
    For example if you go and explore a little known Caustic Caverns there’s a secret inside.

    Spoiler Show

    Anyways what I’m saying is that if you just take time to get away from the main quest and all your other side quests and just go explore the game world, you never know what you’re going to find. And it could be an awesome easter egg or a stash of beast weapons, you’ll never know unless you take a chance to go exploring.

  3. Take Advantage of the Melee
  4. One of the coolest things to do in Borderlands 2 is to melee down some of those psycho’s. Although this a feature pretty much expected in every fps game released today, Borderlands 2 does it fairly well.

    You can even make Zero, one of the characters in the game, a melee machine by following this article.

  5. Focus on One Skill Tree
  6. In Borderlands 2 each class has three skill trees. Now I know you may want to try out all of them. The simple fact is that if you want your character to be a beast quickly, try sticking with one skill tree.

    Now I can’t really speak for the other classes because I haven’t spent a lot of time with them yet. Although I can say with Zero (the assassin class), if you read the article linked to above, can be such a melee induced assassin if you just stick with the bloodshed skill tree.
    It’s a great way of making your character an “expert” in one area quickly, so you can focus on one main major thing that your character will be able to do. While you still could make your character an “expert” in everything it will just take a lot longer than if you just stick with one skill tree.

  7. Play Co-op
  8. It’s kind of a given that a game of this magnitude and depth that you should check out the co-op. It features full 4 player support throughout the entire game. And it’s pick up and play, so you can drop in anytime.

    Being really the only major open world fps game with multiplayer support makes it a real catch. I know they had it in the first game but it just makes the game that much better that you can play with other people. The difficulty and amount of enemies scales well. This really is a grand example of superb co-op in gaming.


Borderlands 2 is one of the great epic open world games released this generation. It’s got co-op integration, a great class system, and just improvement all around from the first game. It really is an engaging game that if you’re even remotely interested in, I’d recommend picking it up.
So after reading the article do you have any exploring stories of your time in Pandora? What class are you choosing to play as? Let me know in the comments!
