The legendary loot of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

2 min read


At it’s core, Borderlands has always been about maths. Maths that can pop your head off with one well-timed shot or cover you in corrosive acid and lightning that is. Such maths is usually seen in the loot of the game, and with a trazillion guns to spare, there’s a lot of number-crunching to do on bandit faces. Of course, the best loot happens to have an orange font that glows with the warmth of a heavenly choir. And Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel once again has plenty of those legendary armaments available.

Here’s a selection of Legendary Loot, from the reddit vaults. Feast your eyes on the goods, and look at your common rifle with much disappointment:

I’ve always dug the loot of Borderlands. Hell, it’s what the entire game revolves around, so it would make sense that this would be the aspect that was worked on the most. And when it comes to drop rates, Borderlands loot has a pretty fair amount of gear that straddles the line between common, rare and OH MER GHERD WHERE DID YOU GET THAT GERN?!

Of course, to get such loot, some farming of bosses is necessary. But then again, the blue, pink and purple guns in the game pack a rather solid punch and can be attained with shift keys that are given out at regular intervals. That creates a nice buffer between fielding exotic and rare guns, before you get that happy fizzy feeling in your prostate when you finally see an orange glow on a rifle.

It’s not just me though, is it?

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!
