Achievement Discussion
 
Discuss the achievements, when they are revealed, in this thread!

Enraged Bannana 08-25-2009 06:17 PM

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 :(

xhunterrrr 08-25-2009 07:11 PM

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.

padraiglovesyou 08-25-2009 08:50 PM

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

Frankie Godskin 08-25-2009 08:53 PM

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.

DevilDawg97 08-25-2009 11:12 PM

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

General Boredom 08-26-2009 11:52 AM

This is probably one of my most anticipated games this year, can't wait.

Achievements look great too; not too easy and not too difficult.

Nozza XBA 08-26-2009 12:12 PM

This game looks amazing and the achievements go with it!

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

Heart Break Cid 08-26-2009 10:01 PM

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

NarrBitaYarr 09-05-2009 06:06 AM

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.

sandojoe 09-17-2009 09:33 AM

Gawd i cant wait till this game comes out. Even w/o the achievements this game is gonna be so much fun.:Bounce:

mosin360 09-25-2009 12:28 AM

They simple put the cherry on the massive cake that will be this game. I look forward to the game and the achievements, its a win-win!

Tomeeboy 10-01-2009 08:53 PM

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 ;)

At this point it might be unknown, but I'm siding on the side that it won't...

garrettd 10-15-2009 08:48 PM

yo me too
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
ability... are we going to have to restart the game 4 times to get them all?

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.

Leinfors 10-20-2009 05:28 PM

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.

iCheesymonkey 10-20-2009 06:50 PM

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

Ponder416 10-20-2009 08:40 PM

So far I have been unable to get the Fire, Shock and the 25 kills with vehicle achevo's to pop.

Apple 10-20-2009 11:16 PM

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?

GDA 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.

Sina117 10-21-2009 07:16 AM

Here's a video I made showing how to get the Speedy McSpeederton Achievement, idk about you guys but i didnt naturally come across it during the course of beating the game once already but a buddy and i found it so i hope you guys dont waste your time like we did.


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"


EDIT 10/22/09: Secret Achievement called You're on a boat! also

if you both need that claptrap then it will give the sdu to both of you

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.

Jet1337 10-21-2009 02:52 PM

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