Borderlands 2 Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt DLC Images and Details Leak
Written By
View author's profile

A whole raft of details and images from Borderlands 2's next dose of DLC have been hacked from a recent title update, revealing some of the new skins, heads and weapons that'll feature in Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt when it eventually launches.

Taking you to an entirely "savage" new continent named Aegrus, the leaked promotional blurb states that your goal will be "to uncover the most exotic creatures Pandora has to offer, and give 'em the old one-two!" Details posted on Reddit reveal that a future update codenamed 'Gardenia' will add three new customisation packs - the Domination, Supremacy and Madness Packs - bundling a new head and skin per character. It's not clear whether these will be unlockable or offered as paid content.

Here's more somewhat SPOILERIFIC details on Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, courtesy of MikeTheInfidel on Reddit:

  • One new head and one new skin for each class
  • A new vehicle - the fanboat (summoned from a Catch-A-Boat station), with 68 of its own skins and corrosive, incendiary, and shock weapon mods
  • Currently 12 side missions and 5 longer main story missions
  • A new raid boss ("Imagine, if you will, a Stalker the size of a small building. Now imagine yourself killing it.")
  • More new Seraph items
  • New kinds of enemies, like the borok and the scaylion
  • Lots of monster-tracking side missions assigned by Sir Hammerlock
  • A new swamp/jungle continent named Aegrus
  • A self-important but not-so-well-known new enemy who is "super-pumped we're archenemies now", and who leads a tribe of jungle savages and has an evil plan that might actually work
  • A new treasure room brimming with goodies... but with a time limit

As well as the above details, there's also a bunch of new images showing the skins from MP1ST, and images of new weapons and items you'll be able to unearth in the upcoming DLC via Examiner provided by 'technojacker'. You can check them all out below.

2K Games and Gearbox have yet to officially announce Borderlands 2's Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, but we snagged the trophies on our sister site PS3T, a few days ago. In short, it's coming pretty soon.

Cool! More BL2 DLC!

Also, I just realized how ridiculous the first two assault rifles are. How do the bullets go through the gun into the barrels?! Bullet curving?!

Needs a level cap. I'm halfway through my true vault hunter playthrough and I've already hit lvl 50, trying my hardest to wait to play all the DLC so I don't waste the XP.

Also the Zero head customization looks like a Reaper from Mass Effect!

Gearbox have actually managed to get a rumor to germinate that claims that they do not intend to increase the level cap with any of the first 4 DLC (the ones that come with the Season Pass). And will instead release a 5th DLC that's more along the lines of the scope of Zombie Island or General Knoxx and will have a level cap increase, but will have to be purchased separately since it's not part of the pass.

Now, I don't know the truth of the situation (and I don't hold the above opinion myself), but this is indicative of the animosity that's being stirred by the fact that they won't increase the level cap:

People are resorting to conspiracy theories.

I really need to get back in to this game, I've just had no urge since my save got wiped by that graveyard.sav fiasco. I would have sold the game there and then if I hadn't bought the season pass, I need to try and get my moneys worth out of it.

Nice new weapons and mod! Skins are OK, but I mainly buy these for story and length, so here is to hoping that it will be a ssubstantial as Scarlet's booty=)

This would be so shit, but so unsurprising. Selling out for more money whilst ignoring the fans that gave you all that money is what means you have made it in the gaming world

Not playing any of the DLC until they raise the level cap. Just feels... pointless.

None of the weapons have a level requirement. Seems odd. Maybe they took them off because they are upping the level cap and don't want anyone to know until the DLC comes out. I really hope that why.

I like the new heads Gaige and Maya's are my favourites and for some reason when I first saw Axton's new head the first thing that came to mind was
Van Helsing.

@#20 I fear that may be correct. Especially if the gamerscore stays at 125 for each DLC released. If they are going to end up with 1750 like with BL1. I'm not really to upset about it but it would make more sense to release an increase now and another 1 or 2 further down the line. I was originally hoping we might get to level 99 or something now I'm wondering if we'll even get to 69.

@32

Axtons new head is based off Bob Pecks character "Robert Muldoon" from Jurrasic Park. The name is even a reference to his final line before being mauled by velociraptors.

"...clever girl."

Funny thing is I actually remember that line from Jurassic Park with JP being one of my all time favourite movies however I didn't take much notice of the name until I read your comment but yeah like I said the first thing that came to mind was Van Helsing for some reason.

@25 - Been thinking that myself for weeks now. Only thing I am wondering about is the achievement score? If the first 4 DLCs take us to 1500, where could the other 500 coming from? I actually think there will be 2 more DLCs after the Season Pass at 250 gamerscore each.

Season pass is proving to be a waste of money. Thanks Queerbox. Boring bosses from the last 2 DLCs, weak story and lame rewards. I'm going back to playing Blands 1.

Keep in mind Gearbox will also be releasing new classes in the near future. I wouldn't be surprised if they release a new class before they raise the level cap. On a side note, anybody feel like they should introduce a class that can summon an animal like Bloodwing? Maybe a skag like Dukino?

Can't wait for the season pass to hit the Xmas sale. Once I hit level 40 (which will be a while yet, as I'm only at level 27) I'll take a break until they up the level cap. Either that or actually tell us there won't be one.
