Borderlands 2 Achievements


Collect 10 pictures of Moxxi in Campaign of Carnage   

Whilst in any of the new locations introduced in this DLC, there is a small chance that any enemy with the words 'Bad-ass' before its name will drop a framed pictures of Moxxi, upon dying. 

The picture has a purple glow when it has dropped (Looks like PURPLE rare loot), and is a rather large, rectangular, somewhat unmissable object, amongst all the weapons and cash dropped from dead enemies, so you won't miss them when they drop.

Fastest way to farm these is at 'Pyro Pete's Bar', which can be accessed by travelling through 'The Beatdown' area. A lot of 'Bad-Ass' enemies spawn here if you activate the mission, 'Bar Room Blitz' within this area and you can activate the mission as many times as you want. Just start the mission, kill everyone inside the bar, including the large amount of 'Bad-Asses' that spawn here, hoping that 1 or more will drop a picture, if so pick it/them up, then save and quit. Then hit continue when you get to the main menu, and you will already be inside Pyro Pete's Bar when you spawn. You can then activate the mission again and continue the cycle until you have found 10 pictures to unlock the achievement.

*Note; This achievement is reportedly glitchy and may not unlock for some people after having found 10 pictures. Do not worry though, as it will unlock, you may just need to find more pictures. It may take somewhere in between 10 and 20 pictures to unlock the achievement, but it will unlock. Some report that there are 10 different pictures that must be collected. This is currently unconfirmed.

Too bad these will likely be split second visible before being toted away in your stash... like pink panties and pizza slices. >.

I hope these arn't like the collectables from claptraps robolution, I've had terrible drop rates in Bl2 so far, this will just kill it for me.

@1 There's a much easier way to get Jimmy Jenkins to spawn rather than farming hyperion ammo crates.

Opening the boxes at the wildlife preseravation.
or even looking on that one bandit's chest.

For you guy's still trying to get Jimmy, the fastest place to quit and reload to find him is in Opportunity. Right when you spawn in go left and stick to the wall. You will eventually see 2 signs that say Hardhat Required or something like that, and behind the one on the left are 2 ammo crates, just keep opening those and reloading until you get him. I got him there in 2 reloads, but I have heard of people taking more than 20 times. Good luck guys.

have just been playing campaign of carnage and about 30 mins in i kill this enemy and it drops some purple loot, so i walk up to it thinking its just some eridium and sure enough its the moxxi pics. so they are random drops in the game like the pizza and stuff from the robot revolution dlc in the first game. these are more common as i have found 5 in under 2 hours. hope this helps.

Comment #13 by Kilobos
Tuesday, November 20, 2012 @ 05:03:40 PM

This can be done in Pyro Pete's Bar in The Beatdown zone. It is dropped by the badasses or the brutes. You can either wait for respawn or continually repeating the Bar Brawl Tier 3 Rematch quest.

Comment #14 by Mrryan12
Tuesday, November 20, 2012 @ 05:21:25 PM

I'm pretty sure I have obtained 2 of these in around an hour of playing, so I don't expect this to be a long farm at all, if not I should have it done before the DLC is completed. Just in case anyone is wondering how long this should take.

Comment #15 by lConundrum
Tuesday, November 20, 2012 @ 07:03:43 PM

Do you need to activate a side-quest or anything for these? Played through the entire DLC and havn't found a single one.

Comment #16 by dab198
Tuesday, November 20, 2012 @ 08:23:34 PM

Finished the DLC with 5 of them (I think - I couldn't see a way to check), two of which just came from basic psychos.

I don't really fancy grinding the bar quest for the rest, but that does sound like the easiest way. I haven't reached level 50 yet, so it'll help get me there too.

Comment #17 by PhaZoNxz
Wednesday, November 21, 2012 @ 01:24:37 AM

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've picked up a minimum of fifteen pictures of Moxi using the bar grinding method and 5% rare loot relic and it just doesn't unlock...

Much easier to get than any of the Claptrap DLC collectibles, and it does share among friends. I only collected 3 (maybe 4-5) with my friends last night, but when I get a couple more, the achievement popped. So I know we all collected 9 together last night, so it shares them with any one in the group (just like eridium).

By the way, where do we submit the picture for the achievement? I can't seem to find a way to do so.

Comment #21 by grumpyyogi1968

no need to submit anything, once i picked up my 10th picture, the achievement just popped up!

opening sections of the dlc drops alot in two player co-op.

got about 7 or 8 then they stopped spawning/dropping then eventually got a few more in pyro pete's bar then gave up and after 3 rematches of tier 3 in the same place got the final one solo the more players that are in the better your chances.

team does share the credit lol

What's that all about :(

Comment #26 by EarthFool
Friday, November 23, 2012 @ 10:41:37 AM

Ok, i can confirm this achievement does not pop always when you get 10 collectibles. I counted them since the beginning and i got 12 of them before the achievement popped and i have heard some people needed 15 to get it popped. So just keep collecting until 15 if it does not pop for you.

Comment #27 by THE HamBot
Friday, November 23, 2012 @ 03:49:42 PM

Some how I only found 1 throughout the whole campaign. I just farmed Pyro Pete's Bar for about 9 to 12 times and I got them a lot doing it that way. This took me only about 1 hour to-do and I think it's the easiest way to get this achieveo.

Comment #28 by Face275
Friday, November 23, 2012 @ 06:05:14 PM

From what I understand not all of the pictures of Moxi count towards the achievement. It has to be a fully framed, complete picture. There are some unframed photos and torn pictures that will drop, but not count.

Also, you can go into the bar without starting the quest and pick a fight. The brawl just keeps going and going.

Does anyone know if I collect 5 pictures on playthrough 2, then help a friend on playthrough 1 and collect the other 5, if the achievement will unlock? Or do they all need to be on the same playthrough?

The tier 3 rematch bar room blitz optional mission is in Pyro Pete's bar in an area called "the Beatdown". It is the best way to get this achievement. I made a video going more into detail, please leave some feedback on the video if it helped thanks.

Comment #34 by GreyRiot
Monday, November 26, 2012 @ 03:25:00 PM

I agree with all the previous suggestions about Pyro Pete's Bar.
YMMV I collected 5 playing the DLC. I ran the repeatable mission at Pyro Pete's until I collected the remaining. I earned the 1000 Torque Token challenge 5 minutes before I found my last picture.

Not nearly as bad as the Claptrap one.

Comment #35 by ArrowsmithAK47
Wednesday, November 28, 2012 @ 10:25:50 PM

I believe the reason most people don´t get the cheevo when they pick up 10 pictures is that there are 10 different pictures. You have to get one of each, and repeats don´t count. I estimate I´d picked up about 25 pictures before I got a unique set. i haven´t confirmed this, but it makes sense. I figured it out when I started looking at them instead of just scooping them up.

Comment #38 by Angels N Skins
Friday, November 30, 2012 @ 04:18:09 PM

I did it in the bar as well. When I did the Tier 3 mission, they never dropped. Just go into the bar and shoot everyone. Leave the bar, go back in then rinse and repeat. I got at least 1 every time.

I think I've picked up five or six and am grinding barroom beat down for more. I get bored of it, so just do a couple of runs a day. If someone wants to do a co-op game with me we can switch off (I'll go an hour solo while you wait at the vending machines, then we can switch).

The thing about this is that it has to be 10 different pictures of Moxxi, I've gotten over 15 and still no achivement. A few of my friends got it in 10, but i've been having some trouble with this i've been redoing the bar fights and that's a really good way to get torgue tokens, but damn i want this achivement!

I'm looking for someone who would want to help me farm for this achievement. I'm a level 36 Gunzerker, and I haven't done my second playthrough yet.

I can't defeat the level 50's in Pete's Bar for the 3rd Bar Brawl.

Message AdroitxAssassin if you would like to help me.

Thank you

borderlands is one of my favorite series of games next to the grand theft auto and call of duty games in terms of on disc play, once dlc is released for borderlands its terrible, no level cap increases and stupid achievements like this that make fans hate the only took me 3 hours to beat all side missions and story but 8 hours after this doesnt pop...get ur shit together and stop tryin so hard to make ppl keep playin and try harder to keep loyal fans

Comment #55 by Five5tar5tunna
Saturday, January 19, 2013 @ 08:00:07 PM

played for 5 minutes got 1 picture and it popped..easiest is Pete's bar just keep doing the mission but leave and then travel back. I got more pictures that way then just staying in the bar. And u do need 10 different photos I probably collected 14 -16 total. U can get lucky and do this in about 2-3 hours but it took me about 5.

Well, I just farmed Pyro Pete's Bar for 6 hours straight, using the Evil Smasher glitch so that my Infinity kills everything in one shot, and I only found one portrait. ONE. In SIX hours.

I tried quitting and reloading my save, I tried doing the Bar Fight quest, I tried NOT doing the Bar Fight quest, I tried fighting in the Arena instead, etc. I only found TWO pictures the entire freaking time I played this mother freaking DLC, and one of them took 6 hours of farming to acquire.

Gearbox can go f*** themselves for being lazy and making unimaginative DLC and achievements. Do they really think players like farming for HOURS to get some pointless achievement? Idiotic developers. They won't get any of my money from now on.

Comment #59 by CharityDiary
Thursday, February 21, 2013 @ 01:59:28 AM

Listen up, folks. I've discovered something. These portraits are very similar to the appearance of Jimmy Jenkins. Let me explain.

A few months ago, I used to help people find and kill Jimmy Jenkins. I probably found him for over 100 people, so I know what I'm talking about. I would do runs, over and over, and at first, he would appear a couple of runs in a row, then he would appear every now and then, and then not at all. For example, on runs 1, 2, and sometimes 3, he would be in the first box I opened. Then he wouldn't appear until run 5 or 6, then run 10, then run 18, then run 30.

These portraits work the same way. You might get one or two of them close together, but after that, they become VERY rare. So on any given day, if you start up your game and start to farm Pyro Pete's Bar,

Comment #60 by CharityDiary
Thursday, February 21, 2013 @ 02:00:59 AM

(continued) you will find a couple of portraits by the time you're done with your second run. But after that, they're nearly impossible to find.

This is because, for some reason, the chances of one of the purple loot drops being a portrait drastically decreases based on how many portraits you've found recently. So if you want to get this achievement quickly, get two portraits, then sign out of Xbox Live and set your console's date ahead one day, and go farm Pete's Bar again. You'll find one or two more portraits again very easily.

Sunday, May 05, 2013 @ 12:10:24 PM

I've been playing this as a 3 player co-op and was under the impression that we would each have to find 10 pics each, but today the achievement popped for all three of us when I picked up a pic. I don't know if the patch has anything to do with it but this was not the hassle I was expecting.
