A fresh shoot-and-loot era is about to commence. Play as one of the new vault hunters as they battle a vast new universe filled with monsters, psychos, and the villainous leader Handsome Jack. Make new allies, arm them with a gazillion weapons, and battle with them in a four-player co-op throughout the unknown and unpredictable living world of Borderlands 2.
Borderlands 2 is a first-person shooter game released in 2012 by 2K games and developed by Gearbox Software. The game events are set five years after the end of the first Borderlands game which both takes place on Pandora.
The plot this time follows a fresh troop of Vault Hunters who join forces with the resistance group called the Crimson Raiders to fight against Handsome Jack before he can use and unleash the power of the new Vault for his own gain.
There is the option for you to play either offline, split-screen, single-player, or online cooperative. Despite which one you choose, you are able to explore the environment and complete a number of both main and side quests.
Like any other Borderlands game, Borderlands 2 has a randomly generated loot system that is capable of offering a wide range of items and weapons.
New locations of the game are discovered and unlocked when you progress and complete missions. The world is separated into numerous areas that are freely explored given the game's semi-open-world style.
In each region, you will find multiple NPCs who will give you quests that reward you with EXP, good loot, and new weapons. Vehicles are used to travel on the land and can be spawned when interacting with the Catch-A-Ride.
The "Badass Rank" system is a key feature of the game; accomplishing different in-game tasks earns points, which can be exchanged for tokens that may be used to boost the base attributes of your characters.
Another thing to mention is that you may use New-U stations to quickly travel about the globe, while Quick-Change machines enable them to change their avatar's appearance, attire, and name.
In the main game, you are able to pick one of the four available character classes with their own Action Skill that makes them unique. There is Axton the Commando, Maya the Siren, Zer0 the Assassin, and Salvador the Gunzerker. Action skills require a cooldown period before they are can be used again.
Weapons are the most important thing in Borderlands games, and there are many ways to acquire them. You can purchase them from merchants, dropped by defeated enemies, or acquire them from containers or treasure chests.
Each weapon has its own set of stats and features, such as damage output, accuracy, firing rate, and magazine capacity, and their rarity is indicated by a color-coded scale. Not to mention that some weapons you get have additional elemental effects that deal even more damage.
Mods are available to collect for you to modify the Action Skill and grenades you have equipped. Relics are also included in the game and they are artifacts that passively improve one or more attributes of a character. Relics have a wide range of powers, but they are all substantial enhancements to one or more associated stats.
When you complete the main campaign of the game, and like the original, you unlock the "True Vault Hunter Mode". This mode is considered to be the New Game Plus feature in the game that works very similarly to other games. It increases the game's difficulty by making foes stronger, getting better loot and weapons, and increases the level cap to reach level 50.

Handsome Jack is the game's antagonist, who seized the Hyperion Corporation, declared himself the dictator of Pandora, and claimed full control and credit for locating the vault.
Borderlands 2 begins with you traveling by train to an unknown location in search of the vault. The train turns out to be a trap set by the handsome Jack to assassinate all those searching for the vault. The vault hunters fend off the bad guys for a long time before finally arriving at a train car filled with explosives and a fake handsome Jack.
Due to the bomb, the train crashes in the Arctic wasteland and our new squad is scattered across the rubble. When the vault hunters wake up in the game, Claptrap is sifting through the rubble.
Handsome Jack must be destroyed, according to the mysterious Guardian Angel, who instructs players to rescue the four original Vault Hunters from Hyperion in order to do so.
The new group of Vault Hunters in Borderlands 2 have been given the burden of defeating Jack and restoring peace to Pandora.

To help you on your journey, here are some tips for overcoming the challenges in Borderlands 2.
● Don't feel rushed to complete the main story. As you complete side quests, your level will increase, making you ready for the boss encounters that follow, especially if you're playing the game alone.
Make some buddies you can play with. Borderlands 2 is best played and enjoyed with a friend, making your first journey easier as you move forward and develop your characters together. And, since each character is unique in their own way, it's always a smart idea to have more than one class to fight bosses.
● To make the most of your weapon clips, invest in eridium. ammunition can be scarce in Pandora, especially when you compare the amount you use and need. There aren't usually many stores that sell ammo, and enemies don't always drop it. To expand your magazine capacity, use the purple coin eridium on the black market in Sanctuary.
● Don't ignore the tokens. Borderlands 2 features challenges that can be traded for increased status, similar to the original game. As you complete more challenges, you will receive additional tokens. Tokens can be used to increase your stats such as weapon accuracy, shield capacity, maximum health, etc. They are quite useful.
