Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 Achievements

Capped Out…For Now

Reached level 50  

Reaching level 50 will take you at least 1½/2 whole playthroughs of the game. Simply completing one playthrough will get you to around level 30-35. Unless you play a lot more coop with higher levels, then you may be a little more.

Once you've reached these levels, you'll be pretty close if not at the end of the game and the XP will be small and sweet. This now means you need to move onto your 2nd playthrough with the same character.

The XP you gain now in this playthrough will be more worth it. You should reach level 50 at 3,429,728 XP and about ½ if not at the end of your 2nd playthrough.

Good to know it'll be getting some DLC. With the exception of Underdome, they were all pretty enjoyable.

Yeah, the DLC were great, but this time can we please get some teleporter points and spawn closer to the objectives, rather than EVERY death putting us all the way back at the beginning?!?! Also I hope they slowed the re-spawn rate a bit, because a couple times when I was having a difficult time in an area, the enemies literally re spawned right on top of me. they shouldn't spawn till at least you leave the area.

Love the achievement name! Shows they are shooting for the future (which is not in question considering the 4 DLC we had for BL1).

#9 the pizza slices weren't that bad. it was those damned clap-trap bobble heads!!! i'm a little surprised that level 50 is maxed out, expected a bit more, lets hope the DLC brings it up to around 90 or 100!

Comment #16 by phawq
Saturday, August 04, 2012 @ 02:07:09 PM

I hope instead of 3 small-medium sized dlc campaigns, we get 1 Large DLC campaign (at least twice as much content as General Knoxx). And up the level cap to 70 or something. Maybe also add in a new weapon manufacturer

Zombie Island and Robolution were too short, and while General Knoxx was more in the right direction, its main quest still felt a bit quick.

Comment #17 by Zedymieon77
Sunday, August 12, 2012 @ 01:30:04 PM

Have to love Gearbox and what they have for achievements. And for everyone who wants an increased level cap: I can see why you'd want that, but I think that
Gearbox specifically left it at 69 because it was 69 >.>

Comment #19 by Jaroba
Thursday, August 16, 2012 @ 11:54:00 PM

@18 according to an article I read, the campaign will last around 58 hours, now that's long, I have no idea wether the rumor is true, but let's hope so!!

Comment #20 by UberCamm
Saturday, August 25, 2012 @ 01:20:44 PM

My guess is that the "for now" refers to the main campaign. A few gameplay demo videos on youtube from various events have gearboxxers talking about some new end game features. I am hoping that the cap goes up after one playthrough of the campaign. If you look at the skill trees it just seems that like 44 skill points are not going to cut it. That's just my guess though.

Comment #21 by Wanz1
Thursday, August 30, 2012 @ 08:09:16 AM

DLC will raise the level cap.

Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 02:26:12 PM

there will be 4 dlc and you can buy a season pass

Comment #23 by ElectricLizard7
Monday, September 03, 2012 @ 09:50:15 PM

hopefully there are enough skill points to fill out at least 2 skill trees, or more

Comment #24 by jiggyjosh
Wednesday, September 05, 2012 @ 05:32:41 AM

Hopefully they increase the cap before I reach 50, don't wana play and waste all that XP :)

Obvious level cap increase is obvious

Comment #26 by El Oso

Filling out two skill trees is what it's all about. Double nuke with Axton? Level cap increase, please.

Sunday, September 16, 2012 @ 08:49:33 PM

Went to PAX Prime 2012 and got into the Gearbox panel, they confirmed 4 sets of DLC... did not say what they were though. So for those that are excited about previous DLC, they have already started on the content and that does not include the Mechromancer. If I recall correctly they said she should be available on October 15.

Comment #28 by resevil239
Thursday, September 20, 2012 @ 10:11:03 PM

@7 You probably won't see this but I'll reply anyways. In the DLC levels, everytime you died you started at the same spot you were at when you started the DLC because that was the only checkpoint/fast travel box in the whole map. I never got to play the claptrap DLC, but thats how it was in the zombie one and general Knoxx.

Sunday, September 30, 2012 @ 06:42:21 PM

Question. I'm a lvl 35 and leveling up very very slowly. I've been farming heroes pass and orchasm wave matches on normal. I beat the game but I'm afraid to start true vault hunter because I want to kill teramorphus and I figured he would be even harder on that difficulty. Any thoughts on where to get really good xp after having beat the game

Comment #35 by Joonas74
Monday, October 01, 2012 @ 02:16:37 AM


Terramorphus will always be at lvl50+ so starting a true hunter mode will not make any difference. Just start your second playthrough and you will get a ton of XP for the missions and level up rather quickly

Comment #36 by samsaBEAR
Monday, October 01, 2012 @ 05:50:42 AM

@34 You can also go back and forth between the two playthroughs on your save, use Playthrough 2 to rank up your character and go back and kill Terramorphus on Playthrough 1 (unless you care about the sick loot he'll drop in PL2)

Comment #37 by HughDawg03
Monday, October 01, 2012 @ 04:06:52 PM

Comment #40 by Buruma
Monday, October 08, 2012 @ 07:35:17 AM

#33 Finding someone with a True Vault Hunter 2.5 save at Flesh-stick side quest is a much safer method and probably just as quick. (Someone helped me boost from level 32 to 42 in less than ten minutes using the Flesh-stick trick.) That is how my friend and I intend to level up our secondary characters. The other method runs the risk of corrupting your game save.

Comment #41 by FSparacino4
Monday, October 08, 2012 @ 01:04:40 PM

The reason the lvl cap was 69 and not say 90 or 100, was because a lvl cap that high would give you too many points and you could get most, if not all of the talents, taking away the variation when playing with others of the same class. No point of having talent trees if you could get every talent, unless they lengthened each tree by adding new skills.

you can get lvl 50 by beating the game on normal mode and then loading true vault hunter mode. you get more XP that way.

Saturday, March 16, 2013 @ 10:16:16 PM

I got to level 50 by playing in the arenas in The Fridge and Wildlife Exploitation where you play through 5 progressively harder rounds. The enemies in these arenas often drop lots of xp and if you keep letting yourself die near the end you can keep playing them until you level up. If you're patient enough you can max yourself out and get some good item drops in the process.
