Borderlands Legends - For iPhone & iPad

If you like Borderlands, then you may be excited to know that it is coming out for the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad! Basically -- iOS mobile devices. It's called Borderlands Legends. You'll be able to get it from the Apple Store.

It is a tractical, strategy shooter where you control Roland the Soldier, Brick the Berserker, Lilith the Siren, and Mordecai the Sniper. Yep -- all Borderlands 1 characters instead of Borderlands 2 characters! Each level is randomized when enemies and monsters and bosses, and there's no real story. It's just solid tactical gameplay while you control all 4 of these character classes at once. There's buttons in the top right corner that allow you to issue fast commands too -- such as group healing, shields, and aggro (aggravation / distracts enemies to focus their attacks on Brick).

Check the video below to see a nice preview of Borderlands Legends Gameplay:

Just like with the original Borderlands and Borderlands 2, there is loot! After each level, you get money to spend on Marcus's vending machine, which has its guns and items change every time you beat a level. This way you never know what you're going to get -- a badass shotgun, a great sniper rifle, an elemental SMG, a powerful rocket launcher, a cool pistol, or a lovely combat rifle or revolver.

Note that each character has a skilltree (linear) and 3 special skills a piece.

Borderlands 2: Patch v1.1.3 - Windows 8 Fix!

Borderlands 2 - PC

Borderlands 2

Windows 8 has problems running Borderlands 2 -- especially some Skidrow crack copy or Blackbox copy that has been going around (it's a great game -- you should buy it from Steam!). It does occur on retail copies of the game too though for some people.

The game does not launch. It does not open -- the mouse moves and shows the hour glass but fails to boot the game. Normally, you'd have to do a Windows 98 compatible mode setting on the EXE to allow it to run, which makes the game not run as smoothly. However, there is a Windows 8 Fix -- a patch -- that will allow the game to run for you on Windows 8 Consumer preview and Windows 8 RTM. Note this also helps users who have Windows 7 who cannot launch the game.

We will be sure to post the latest Windows 8 Fix for v1.1.4 patch too when available.

Thanks to paperboy666 for letting us know about the new fix!

Make sure to disable the Windows 98/ME compatibility mode on the EXE after patching (if you had enabled it for a previous Windows 8 Borderlands Fix).

Best Borderlands 2 Class Builds

Borderlands 2 Cast

Borderlands 2 Cast

As of right now, there are currently 5 Borderlands character classes counting Gaige the Mechromancer, which is obtainable via DLC. Each class is strong and unique. Each also has a special class build. Check out our guides below for info!

Strongest Borderlands 2 Skill Builds

Our list is as follows:

Best Axton Build - The strongest commando solo build.

Best Gaige Build - This Anarchy skill tree build is possibly one of the highest DPS builds in the game for Mechromancer.

Best Maya Build - Maya the Siren is the best support class. This is the best elemental build for the best damage class. It is a good Phaselock build. She's the best duo / co-op class.

Best Salvador Build - The Gunzerker is the best tank class with high damage. Two guns at once allows you a lot of powerful combinations. Great with shotgun.

Best Zer0 Build - The Assassin is fantastic with melee and long distance.

Each of these builds is very strong for all classes. You will kill enemies AND bosses very fast, especially in co-op with someone using another well built character. You should also destroy your friends during PVP easily.

Good luck with Borderlands 2! Game of the year!

Borderlands 2: Best Siren Class Build

Borderlands 2 - Maya the Siren

Maya the Siren

Sirens are all about Phaselock. They utilize it constantly, as it is their action skill, and it's really useful at crowd control. At higher levels, it even damages enemies.

The best Borderlands 2 support class is Siren. They can heal AND revive! With nice class mods, they can do even more -- such as hp / health regeneration and quicker action skill cooldowns.

Sirens can also have nice elemental builds with a high rate of damage per second (DPS).

They're one of the favored classes in this game, though every single class rocks.

You can make hybrid builds with the Siren pretty easily too. Our build focuses on being as strong as possible in combat.

Borderlands 2: New Patch v1.1.3 - How to Get Lots of BadAss Points Fast

Borderlands 2 PatchA new patch for Borderlands 2 is now out! It fixes some bugs and adds some new features. Checkout the changelog for all the details. Download the Borderlands 2 v1.1.3 patch now! This includes Steam users.

Update v1.1.3 (Released 10/25/2012)
- Added a toggle for whether textures should fade or pop in when a higher-resolution version loads. High-end computers can disable this to avoid seeing lower-resolution textures streaming in.
- Added the ability to reset all challenge progress for a character once they've completed 85% of all non-DLC, non-area-specific challenge levels. This will keep the player's current challenge bonuses and rank, but reset all challenge progress to 0 and allow challenges to be re-completed for additional ranks and bonuses. Resetting is available on the "challenges" screen of the status menu and will display as a tooltip at the bottom of the screen if the player has met the criteria.
- Fixed a bug where profile files set to "read only" were not being saved.
- Fixed a performance issue in Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty content with PhysX set to Medium or High.

How to Get Badass Points Fast

Note the challenge progress reset ability in the patch changelog above? Very useful! You can reset badass points every time you reach 85% completed. Cool stuff! This lets you get massive amounts of badass points now!
-- Get to 85% completed and reset right away
-- Kill with all weapons
-- Kill with all elements

Borderlands 2: Best Assassin Skill Build

Borderlands 2 - Zer0 the Assassin


Zer0 the Assassin is a character of mystery in Borderlands 2. His face is not visible, he doesn't really talk, and even has stealth abilities.

So is Zero the Assassin a character class that should remain hidden and fight from far away? It certainly can be!

You can spec your character so that you're a high rate, damage per second (DPS) sniping build that can destroy enemies by blasting their critical areas fast and efficiently using the Sniping Skill Tree.

You can also say "eff that" and take up arms in the Bloodshed Skill Tree for the best Assassin Melee Build -- and when bundled with Cunning Skill Tree abilities, it becomes even stronger.

We aren't looking at a melee build though. We're looking at what's possibly the best Assassin solo build, which makes use of Zero's sniper rifle skills for massive damage. It also bundles in some health and shield skills for defensive purposes, making it like an Assassin Tank Build, but in general, they do not actually tank as well as other classes can (go to Salvador the Gunzerker for that).

This class build uses the Sniping Skill Tree up to tier 6 and then the Bloodshed Skill Tree up to tier 3. This build does not use the Cunning Skill Tree at all.

Worst Gun in Borderlands 2

What's the worst weapon in the game? If you've been doing the missions from Marcus, then chances are you've already encountered it.

It's the cursed gun called The Bane. This gun would be great...if it didn't make you move very slow and made annoying noises when you fire it and reload it. If it didn't make you slow, then it would be a good gun for sure (while your sound is on mute). Too bad there's no way to remove the negative special effect.

The special effect text that gives it all the negative aspects is in Spain, stays mainly on the plain.

Here's a video of this bad boy in action.

It is by far the most funny gun in the game, but don't expect to want to use it.

After all, it is the Worst Gun in Borderlands 2!

Borderlands 2: Best Gunzerker Skill Build

Borderlands 2 - Best Gunzerker Build


The Gunzerker class is awesome. There's no question about it.

Salvador kills his enemies fast and serves them a nice side of pwn'age while doing so with his dual wielding guns.

Gunzerker is the best at crowd control, has a very high damage per second (dps), is capable of tanking (with a tank build), and is one of the most fun classes in Borderlands 2.

The build I'm posting is an amazing Gunzerker solo build (I think it's the Best Salvador Build). It's pretty much a Rampage Build that's hybrid with a Brawn Build. This does not have any of a Gunlust Build though -- as we don't even touch that tree -- but that doesn't mean you can't shift some skill points around. Keep in mind that with more downloadable content (DLC) being released, even more skill points will be obtainable. And once you gain those extra skill points and / or an increased level cap, then you can expand to other skills in trees.

As per usual, if you have any builds you think are better, then please comment below!
