the achievements look great, nothing super difficult which is good but a well balanced list of achievements. im just scared to see what the secret achievements are :(

Secret achievements are probably related to the main storyline which would explain why they are secret. If using the rest of the list as reference, I doubt they would be any more difficult.

Overall, this is a great list. The achievements are ALL very doable, require little to no grinding (except hitting level 50?), and just look like fun to get. I am tired of trying to get 1000G only to get bored shit of a game because I have to collect 82374985798345 flags or get 39475098745 kills. This is how achievements should be done. You can get almost all to all of them just by playing the game normally. You shouldn't have to go way out of the way and spend ridiculous amounts of time on them (I am looking at you Dead Rising with your 5 and 7 day survival achievements...).

I look forward to finally getting my first 1000G on this game.

I think it'll be fun to find someone with the gearbox achievemet :)
I do like all the list though it seems well rounded.

Looks great, and you can get to level 50 by playing however you want, not by getting 1,000 kills with a shotgun and then 1,000 more with a sniper rifle, etc.; you can level without grinding other achievements.

As said above, I hope the secret ones are storyline-related and don't involve grinding.

That is a pretty good achievement list. I am eager to see how the game turns out.

I cant wait to play this and add it to my 1k list .. until DLC comes out for it and bumps it up!

The achievements look great, they seem more time/exploring orientated rather than skill focused. Can't wait to get stuck into this game!

Really sensible list IMO, story-mission oriented for the most part, and then just other fun things that you can do. Very doable 1K for any shooter fans.

To me this is just icing on the cake, I'm probably going to dig this game, good achievements or not.

It does look like a pretty decent list (nothing too intimidating in there). I already had this game pre-ordered, so it looks like I'll be sticking with it.

Some games manage to discourage me from even playing them because the achievements are extremely time consuming. I like challenging achievements (Mile High Club in CoD4, challenge rooms in Arkham Asylum, etc), but I HATE when developers require you to play the game in every way possible just to get all of the achievements (ie: Mass Effect, Dragon Age, etc). The only thing you achieve by chasing after those is working a JOB that doesn't pay you anything ;)

im also curious if you can hold more then one character and how?
for example the achievements for getting a certain amount of kills with each classes

BulletH0l3s
10-17-2009, 11:37 PM
I've been looking forward to this games for a long time, since I read about it in a magazine, the achievements look really doable and fun, good and balanced making the player play through more than once.
I think Im really going to enjoy this game, I just hate the way 2 games are coming out basiclly the same week, TBOGT(GTA IV), Forza 3. I think borderlands is going to dominate my time for most of '09, with minor distractions like Assassins creed II, MW2 and Forza 3.
I'll be the first to set up a co-op group.

Cubituss
10-18-2009, 10:38 AM
For the achie-whores at heart (like myself) there is a second MASSIVE layer of cake icing: the game has it's own achievement system where it rewards you with xp basically for everything. 100 human kills, 250 human kills, 1000 human kills, 100 kills with a pistol, 250, 1000 and so on. The list is endless.

Does anyone know if, when you do a Claptrap mission in co-op, if they will give EACH member a inventory booster? If not, this may prevent this achievement from being done in multiplayer.

Anybody know what it means when the damage on a weapon flashes inbetween a multiplier?

If it said 100/x16, would that be 1600 damage? or is that something totally different?

10-20-2009, 11:50 PM
I think the x7 or x4 or x whatever that you see is the ammount of actual shots it fires in one trigger pull.

for shotguns..it's the amount of buckshot pellets that fly out.

I've found 1 SMG that flashed x2 so guessing it fired 2 bullets for every 1 that left my ammo counter..think it was Bone Shredders weapon.

EDIT 10/20/09: I'll also include the italian plumber one because ie seen a little confusion about it and how it uses the word "stomp"

Anyone know if the Clipper counts toward the incendiary achievement? I have 70 kills but haven't gotten the 25 kill achieve.

the damage has to be from the actual flames and their residual damage not the bullets. if you shoot someone while they're on fire the bullet would normally be the killing force and would claim the kill.

I'd like to add that you can get the 12 Days of Pandora achievement by killing enemies with the different barrels.

Does anyone know how you unlock the Get A Little Blood on the Tires achievement? It says I've ran over 96 enemies, but no achievement! Same with the selling 50 guns one... I've only played single player so far.

densleyhabits
10-21-2009, 04:14 PM
Theres alot of glitches with the achievements i missed out on 12 days of pandora and 1.21 gigawatts. Its annoying but Just start a new character and you should get them eventually. You have to play with all 4 characters to get all the achievements in the end anyway so it shouldnt really matter.

x KrazieNoob x
10-21-2009, 04:33 PM
I don't think you have to play fully though do you? Isnt it just get like 15 kills with there action special?

You can see them when you push the back button, go to the menu where it tells you your missions, and push Y to get into the challenge section. scroll down and you will see something called blood on the tires or so on. :)

10-23-2009, 09:21 AM
I have no problem going back through to get some of them but if I cant get the million dollar one that would be a bitch to try and do with a new character. So if you guys have this problem let me know cause I'm a level 26 right now and have only earned according to my statistics 28,000 dollars.

Tepi
10-23-2009, 09:44 AM
I played various games, some me hosting and others me not hosting and the 1 mil achievement popped when I hit a million.

Also it will take you the 2 play through s to hit 50 but you do hit 50 before the finally boss on your second play through.

So is the 1mil achievement obtained when your character has 1m on it or has accumulated 1m

Nastadon
10-23-2009, 08:06 PM
I got it around 552,000, so it's accumulative.

Hi guys, I'm new. Anyway, for the millionaire one, I currently have $1,121,739 and have the challenge The Rich Get Richer checked off. It actually says I have earned a total of $1,644,653 (under How Much For the Planet) and I have yet to get the achievement. Please say this isn't a glitch and I am simply misinterpreting the criteria.

Can you unlock the co op achievements playing split screen?

I've been playing this game in splitscreen, and the only achievement that didn't pop was the $1 mil. But if we looked at the challenge screen, it only goes up when you play single player or are the host, because it popped for me in splitscreen. Everything else has popped.

10-30-2009, 04:21 AM
I wish there was an easier way to get XP. I'm a level 46 Soldier, and I'm switching between Support and Leader mods for Ammo and 23% extra XP. I just beat Mothrakk, and I've beaten Skagzilla as well. Getting 170,000 XP to get to Level 47 shouldn't be bad (because I've gone from 40 to 46 in roughly 6 hours)...but I wish I knew how much XP I'd have to get between then and now and where to maximize me getting XP.

The only known way to get achievements that you should have got but they won't unlock(i.e Face Melter - When you go to stats it says you have 50+ kills with radioactive weapon, but no achievement) is to restart with a new character. Believe me I know it has happened to me. It is very time consuming, but it is the only way to unlock it once this happens. :(

The game has 2 playthroughs you should be lvl 50 by the end of the second if not just run around the 2nd to last map (most exp here on the 2nd playthrough) killing everything.

another question:
my girlfriend isn't that good at aiming and stuff :D well, let's say she is still practicing :-) so we might really get some trouble with the mad moxxis achievements, so here is my question:

if she hosts the game with a level 1 char and i get the larger challenges done, does the low level host get the achievements as well?

We noticed while playing yesterday that when I host the game and she is Player #2, her total amount of money goes up when she picks up cash / sells stuff, but the amount of money collected on the Challenges list doesn't change.

I've beaten one playthough with one account, using sisters account to get the co-op.
Just wondering if i have to do:
a) A boss battle in co-op must be done during a mission (ie: Can't do it by returning to Rakk Hive) and
b) If I must complete the 15 co-op missions during the one playthrough, or can I constantly restart after the first say.. 5 missions and just do them over and over for the achievement?

Thanks in advance

Having re-bought Borderlands GOTY, I just need a few questions answered before I start them later on. Just for some information, I'm Lvl 50 and about halfway through Playthrough 2.

- Should I start Knoxx Secret Armory first, for the level cap increase in order to gain XP from DLC packs 1-4?

- If this isn't the case, could I manage 50-61 JUST by playing the Knoxx Secret Armory?

I'd like to do the DLC "in order" so to speak. So Zombie Island, Mad Moxxie, Knoxx and Claptrap Revolution. I'll probably not start the fourth until a patch is released. But at the same time, I don't want to be wasting XP by not having the level cap lifted.

Any advice will be appreciated. :)

No doubt been answered before, but the search isn't exactly the most helpful thing in the world.

Now, I've beaten the game as the Siren (Lilith?) all the way through Playthrough 2, and saved every single claptrap possible, but didn't get enough pack upgrades to get the Fully Loaded achievement; I think I stopped at 36 item slots. Is there a trick to getting those extra pack upgrades? I don't mind playing the game through a third time with a new character, but I'd like to know ahead of time what I should keep in mind.

You didn't actually save every single claptrap. Remember, you have to find the claptraps for the missions to even show up. In your case, there were two you missed along the way. Look at this guide (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=188236) to figure out the locations of the ones you missed.

Pretty straightforward and relatively easy to attain 100%. The hardest ones are not necessarily "hard", but they're very time-consuming and tedious.

So I'm trying to get "And They'll Tell Two Friends" by playing splitscreen co-op with a friend, but we played for half an hour and it didn't pop. Is there something I have to do?

CannonJoe: You have to play co-op with another player who has the achievement. Splitscreen wont work

"Play in a co-op game with either an employee of Gearbox or someone who has this achievement"

Got the 100% with DLC very quickly. I enjoyed the game a ton, and I have since completed BL2 as well. :dance:

Is it even possible to 100% this game any more? I know on PS3 there were issues that prevented the 100%.
