It was a Pre-order bonus. I'm assuming there's no in game way of getting it.

I'm currently level 26 on the story mission "The Man Who Would Be Jack" or whatever its called and all my equipment seems... dated I guess. I haven't gone back anywhere but I guess the old bosses don't level with you, any suggestions on who to farm for good stuff at this point in the game?


GOD-Liaths. What I've found is that if you get a Goliath up to maximum level, you get guaranteed purples. Chests rarely yield anything worthwhile in the first playthrough, although that's not to say you shouldn't bother with them.

I started a zerker, and in my opinion, I think most of your points should be going into Brawn, at least early on. You can respec later when you hit level 50, I guess, but I've found that Brawn is really great so far.

i went 5 points into "Hard to Kill", then 5 points into "I'm the Juggernaut", and then 1 point into "Ain't Got Time to Bleed" before moving on to the Rampage tree.

What weapons are you using on your 'Zerker? I assume shotguns? "Filled to the Brim" is a must-have to increase your shotgun' clip size so you're not reloading as often. I got that next, and then "Last Longer". From there I'd probably get some "Yippee Ki Yay" and then finish off "Ain't Got Time to Bleed".

I dunno, he just seems like a tank to me, so I spec him that way. Lots of regen, and I use a slag SMG for my secondary weapon when I'm zerking so I can do double damage with my shotguns.

I have 2 shotguns (slot 1, the highest damage shotgun I can find, and slot 3, a situational elemental shotgun depending on the enemies), a slag SMG in slot 2, and a launcher in slot 4 in case I go down and need a second wind. I found using the Firehawk shield was lulz-worthy (constantly Fire nova'ing all over the place when my shields get depleted).

I'm only around level 20-something (I forget) so I can't really tell you my experience further.


The good drops I got were elemental/slag SMGs back at level 20, so I rolled with that. I really really need to pick up some better hyperion shotguns. I haven't tried using launchers for second winds, although I thought about it. I guess it reflects on my playstyle and that Gunzerking isn't the best approach for me. I'm gonna get this guy to 50 eventually, but I'm gonna need to get weapons on a different character because I feel brutally underpowered right now.

Side missions give you better understand the world of pandora, and give you the much needed exp if like me you rushed through the main story. Some missions give you loot that has red text (not orange). That's about it.

I believe he was talking about the extra optional objectives, not the side missions themselves. Like each mission has some objectives you have to do, and some you can choose to do.

And I'm playing the opposite way. I do every sidequest available before I move on with the main story. That's probably why I'm level 30, and still nowhere close to completing the game yet.

Since nobody replied to this yet: What do you like in a game? Did you play the original Borderlands?

Personally, I prefer this over AC3, although the atmosphere and aesthetic of the game intrigues me (especially due to my bits of First Nations ancestry).

Yes, that's what ment and thanks to you and Masamune for the answers.

That's what I do to. As soon as I get a new story mission usually it opens a bunch if new side missions which I immediately set out to do before I continue the story.

I did the same, I completed every single possible side quest before completing the story on my first playthrough. I think I finished the story when I was like level 37, rofl.


Vault hunter relic? What is that and how do I get it?


Unobtainable unless you pre-ordered the game, or have since paid for the Mechromancer DLC.

The good drops I got were elemental/slag SMGs back at level 20, so I rolled with that. I really really need to pick up some better hyperion shotguns. I haven't tried using launchers for second winds, although I thought about it. I guess it reflects on my playstyle and that Gunzerking isn't the best approach for me. I'm gonna get this guy to 50 eventually, but I'm gonna need to get weapons on a different character because I feel brutally underpowered right now.


Hmm, I dunno what to tell you. The shotguns I roll with usually kill enemies in 1 or 2 shots. 1 shot if I hit the critical spots. Maybe you're not getting close enough?

When I play my Gunzerker I do a lot of running around and jumping and shotgunning people's faces. I find that if you attack from above, you are increasing your chance of hitting them in the head (if they are humanoid enemies). I zig-zag around trying to dodge bullets and then jump and try to shoot them in the face with my shotgun just as I'm coming down from the peak of my jump, lol. It's not overly scientific, but it's working.

yeah, I would recommend doing the "Clan Wars" side quest, and then siding with the Zafords. I got a ridiculously good SMG that both slags and electrocutes at the same time. So it wrecks shields, does shock damage over time, and slags, which allows me to basically 1-shot shotgun anything.

I was messing around in the Fridge yesterday with a level 25-Commando friend and found a legendary shotgun, so if you want my old shotgun you can have it. PM your gamertag, maybe we can play. I've played with g_bassi13 a few times already.

Mechromancer DLC? When did that come out? Geez, I hate not having Live...

So when I download this who do I have to dismember to get the relic, if you don't mind me asking.

If you have the DLC, the relic will automatically pop up into your inventory.

Word of warning regarding the Vault Hunter's Relic. You cannot them up once dropped. I'm not sure if they can be traded, as I haven't tried, but if you drop your relic you will not be able to retrieve it.

Cannot be picked up by anybody, and thus, cannot be traded.

They were specifically designed to do this, since people with the premium get a new vault hunter's relic each time a new character is made.

Ok, so I downloaded the premium club thingy and got the Mechromancer, the Vault Hunter Relic, some starting guns and a golden key. So every new character I start gets all these things too I guess (I started a new Mechromancer for fun and I think she got everything, I didn't check for the key)

So my question is: how does that chest in Sanctuary work? Does it respawn every time you quit and come back? And does the loot level to the guy who opens it or to the guy hosting the game like how other chests work?

Anyway here's my plan assuming the chest respawns and level to the host and every new charecter you make gets a key as well:

Get my friend to start a LAN game (don't have Live) he's level 50, me start a new guy with key join and open chest.

Would this work or does said chest level with the guy opening it?

The chest levels up with the player. And when the player with the key opens it, it gives loot at their level, not the level 50 guy. Basically you get one key whenever you create a new character, and when you use it, it's gone for that character.

You can open the chest as many times as you want, as long as you have multiple golden keys. Which you don't here. So in this case you'll only be getting that one opening.

Not long at all. There are videos on youtubve on how to do it. You could probably do it in a couple of hours or less. Are you on the PC? I could help


And yeah, the golden keys are pretty much worthless. You're better off just farming for legendary weapons, they will be better than the purples you get from the chest. I still have my golden keys and have never used them.

Not sure how but i wound up with a recurring gold key for about a week. Kept saying i had a new key available after using it the previous time. So i kept opening the chest whenever i logged in, Only kept one thing for more than a day out of about 10 opens of the chest. It was a shield and not that great of one either, just the best i could find at the time.

So yes i agree that the gold chest is dumb.

You can kill flesh-stick (tiny tina mission) over and over again to level super fast. Its a known glitch, cheat, exploit, fun time, dont want to spend 50 hours leveling, dont care about story, only want to farm, have to be better than my friends, level is all that matters.....whatever you want to call it.

^^^ What's this about Flesh Stick?

Also I had this idea:

You get better loot from having more people playing right? Well I'm on Xbox and I play co-op system link with the guy in the upstairs suite and I can also piggy back a second player if I host a game (I think only the host can do it) so there can be an extra guy just being there to make the loot better. Plus as he's on a secondary profile once he's level 50 I can use him to help with my main profile characters.

Yes, loot improves with more people, but enemies also become more numerous and more difficult to kill, as well as doing more damage as well.

I don't know how strong your gear is, but if you're level 50 and fighting against level 50+ mobs, I'd think it might be a bit hard to piggy-back 2 people.

By the way, the new DLC quests have some fun stuff, and a lot of chests. Killed the Leviathan and one of the chests in the treasure room gave me my first legendary grenade mod on the first try.


As for your earlier questions about which bosses to farm, I would suggest farming the Warrior until you get your Conference Call. And then, Hunter Hellquist for your Bee shield. After you have those two items, killing and farming any other bosses becomes a walk in the park.

The Warrior and Hellquist are rather easy to farm, as well. Once you've got those two items you can start farming Terramorphous for your first orange class mod until you can find some friends to get together and farm Vermivorous for Legendary class mods (ex. Legendary Soldier).

Other bosses you may want to farm:

Frostburn Canyon:
Spycho (you have to finish Monster Mash pt. 3 from Dr. Zed) for ther Neogenator shield.
Right before Spycho, on the way there you can farm Scorch also, for a really nice fire SMG.

BNK3R for the Sham shield, heads, and the Corporate Bitch SMG ( a great corrosive SMG)

Behind Ellie's, behind the house.
Black Queen for the Nukem rocket launcher

Which class do you play again?

Wow! Thanks for all the info Jai604 and the maps too! This is gonna help a ton! I can't thank you enough!

I play mostly as assassin but I play the four other occasionally as well. I'm loving the Buffalo gun, that things slays!

With the three way (ha ha) I play co-op with my neighbour in the suite upstairs and me and him are the same level (just hit 35 tonight) and so is the extra guy but mostly he just stands there but sometimes my girlfriend grabs the controller and farts around with him by moslty it's just two of us.

And from Hunter Hellquist (Arid Badlands)

and bossing becomes stupidly easy.

When I mean easy, I mean 10 seconds or less to kill Terramorphous kind of stupidly easy.
