Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel’s secret boss is a real dick

Nel

I’ve always maintained that Borderlands is one of the more challenging game franchises out there. Whether it be badass bandits or Skags that happen to fart lightning in your general direction, the game is filled with all manner of beasties who are going to do to your body what Tyler Perry’s Madea did to comedy. Namely, butcher it. But some of the infamous raid bosses in the game are even bigger bullet sponges. But only one of them, is a massive dick.

Naturally, some spoilers to follow. I suggest not reading further if you’d like to avoid this, and I may have just thrown a legendary gun down that cliff in order to distract you. Ahem. So here’s how to unlock the fight of your life. Nar the start of the game, players get tasked with carrying out the dying (actually quite dead at this point) wishes of a Dahl legionaire. A dying wish that involves you crossing Elpis to call a Scav a dick. The Scav, named Nel, takes this news with the grace of Darth Vader at the end of Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge Of The Sith, bending his knees and bellowing out a mighty “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” while you presumably chuckle.

The thing is, Nel can be coaxed into fighting you, by taunting him one final time. Here’s a video from Prestige’r MadLuigi demonstrating this, where players have to essentially do some platforming and rearrange a series of letters in order to spell out, yes you guessed it, “dick”.

At this point, Nel goes off his rocker and decides to murder you. If you manage to beat Nel, you’ll unlock a legendary sniper rifle, the Chikamin Skullsmasher. It’s a decent gun, but nowhere near as good as my locally branded Jacobs shotgun, “The Schuster”. Trust me, that’s a gun that will make bandits schucks themselves. Just another day in the Borderlands then.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
