Army Of Darkness reference​

The Boomstick weapon's description is "Beyond groovy", which is a reference to Ashley's shotgun in Army Of Darkness.
 

Berserker Speed Glitch​

Once you hit level 5 and get the Berserk action skill, you can exploit a glitch that will allow you to constantly be able to move as fast as you would if you were going berserk while still being able to use all your weapons normally. 1. Activate the Berserk skill. 2. While Brick is doing the beginning hand animation he does at the beginning of Berserk, quickly hit the Back button to get to your inventory. This will cancel the Berserk prematurely. You must hit the back button before the beginning hand animation ends or it won't have any effect at all besides just canceling out the action skill. 3. If you did it right and you exit out of the inventory, you will walk at running speed and run even faster! To return to normal, just activate the Berserk when it recharges again and wait until the hand animation is done. Once it is, just wait or exit out of Berserk by going to the inventory and it will be set back to normal.
 

Completion bonus​

Successfully complete the game to unlock New Game+ mode. In your second session, all the enemies will be very powerful.
 

Critical hits​

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.
 

Defeating "The Destroyer" Boss​

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. It has a blue-lighted cave that seems to be its eye. Most of the tentacles have large glowing orbs about halfway 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 easily from that point. Destroy the ones you cannot see easily 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, you can take out one of the orbs on the tentacle that you can see easily to be revived before you get killed and have to respawn. It is like killing another enemy. This is the reason why you must keep one tentacle. If you do get killed, the creature recovers all health but you will respawn in front of the creature. Once again, you can run to your pillar 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 missiles flying at you. With the tentacles nearly gone, you can now focus your attack at the mouth/tongue and its eye for the critical shot. Continue this process when the tentacles respawn. Having weapons that have unlimited ammunition or having ones that create ammo is very useful with the large amount of health level that this Boss has.
 

Diablo 2 reference​

In the Rust Commons West area, near Journal 224 (Hidden Journal quest), a unique Rakk will appear. Its name is Rakkinishu, named after a unique Carver from Diablo 2. Rakkinishu will also drop a shield named the "Cracked Sash", which is a type of item in Diablo 2.
 

Duplicate item​

Start a Co-op mode game. After finding a desired item, drop it on the ground then exit the game without saving it. Have your Co-op partner take the item. Resume the game and you will still see that item on the ground and can collect it. Your Co-op partner can then give you the duplicate item that was previously picked up. This can be repeated as many times as desired.
 

Early Eridian Weapon​

One character must be a Siren.

Go back to Fyrestone in the Arid Badlands; and after you kill the Mothrakk a Eridian weapon will fall out but you have to search everywhere as the trash plot can be huge. When the Mothrakk is low on points shoot warning shots to get it to come towards you, then kill it on the approach.

Berserker: Eridian Cannon

Soldier: Thunder Storm
Siren: Ball Blaster or Wave Blaster
 

Easy experience​

At the start of the game, unlock the cars then just run everyone over. The rocket launcher car is recommended; if need be you can use the rockets to kill the flying things.

Successfully complete the game. Make sure you are about level 40 with your first character. Start a split screen game with a new character that you want to level up quickly. Find a location with lots of enemies that are easy to kill (for example, the lost cave with the crabs and leveled up Skags). Make sure your high level character was saved in the area you wish to go to, and load them as the host with the other character as the second player. Leave them by the new-u station and go to town with your high level character. Your other character will gain levels almost instantly. This begins to slow down about the mid to high level 20s, but you will be able to level them up to about level 35 relatively quickly. When start a single player game with the lower character, you will start out with an extremely high level character and be able to play through the game easily and collect more loot. This is a great way to make many different characters.
 

Easy experience and weapon proficiency​

Use the following trick to get easy experience and weapon proficiencies, as well as more weapons and cash by selling loot from all the dead enemies. 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. Note: 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.
 

Easy Money​

If you have downloaded the expansion pack, "The Secret Armory of General Knoxx", then you can travel to Tartarus Junction. Once there, go down to the area where the small shacks are suspended below the town. Behind one of them is a chest with some guns/mods in it. Take those. Also, get up on the square vents, then jump to the house with the silver gun case. Take those too. Then, avoiding the area to the left of the top of the hill, go to the very top area. I use the elevator usually. On the farthest side, there is a boat hanging down. Jump down into it and grab all the loot there. Jump off (killing yourself, sorry) then run to the weapon shop. Sell, save, load, repeat. Happy Vault Hunting.
 

Extra character inventory​

It is possible to exceed the normal game maximum of 42 inventory spaces for your character's backpack. However it involves two full plays through the game with two characters. First, take the character that you wish to expand the inventory for and in the first play through, find and fix all the Claptraps, maxing out your inventory at 42. With another character, go through the first playthrough and completely avoid the broken Claptraps when it is not necessary to fix them. Starting with the second playthrough keep both characters similarly paced in regards to the active missions. When you reach the broken Claptraps, select the mission with the character who has not gotten the SDU in the first playthrough. Then, let that character remain idle while you take the character you wish to expand and collect the repair kit. After you return to the Claptrap, allow both characters to enter the menu where you turn in the mission. Let the character you want to expand accept the mission first and you should have just collected another SDU for your backpack, further expanding it past 42.

New Haven: Hidden house with Rider gun​

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. Note: When this location is used with the others in New Haven for the "Unlimited guns and money" trick, it really pays off.
 

Rider Sniper Rifle​

In New Haven there there are two hidden chests. When you recieve 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."

Treacher's Landing: Easy weapons​

Go southeast 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 obtained once you looped around the map and were on your way out. However, 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. Then, continue southeast. You will encounter a hut with two bandits. Keep moving southeast along the water's 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, exiting once, and restarting by loading your character again. The weapons crates will have respawned.
 

Unlimited guns and money​

Find a respawning weapons case. For example, in New Haven, there are five weapon crates that respawn every time you load the game. Three are on the roofs (above the truck stop, west staircase over the bar, and above the west gate -- jump 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. Note: 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.
