Ever since Gearbox Software released Borderlands in 2009, the franchise has developed into one of the most successful games of its kind. The immersive environments, crazy characters, and unique art style have a way of pulling a gamer into its world, and they stay there until they find every secret coded into the franchise.
After the success of the first game, there was little doubt there would be another, and Gearbox Software hooked the fans up with Borderlands 2 in 2012. The game expanded on the lore and environments developed in the first title and made the world even larger and more immersive than ever before.
It's been a decade since the first sequel in the Borderlands franchise was released, but people are still finding out random and interesting things about Borderlands 2. Over the years, more and more secrets and nuances of gameplay have been discovered, which is one of the reasons Borderlands 2 remains a popular game with high replayability.
There's a lot about Borderlands 2 that has leaked out over the years, and this list aims to add a little more. So, strap on your favorite gun, and let's dive into Pandora once more!
10. Guns, Guns, & More GUNS!
When Gearbox began developing the first sequel to Borderlands, there was one aspect of gameplay that had not only to match the first title, but it also had to be so much more. The first game boasted a ridiculous number of weapons players could find in the game, but Borderlands 2 managed to one-up its predecessor.
But, actually, it did a lot more than that. Borderlands 2 was described as having 87 bazillion guns. Unfortunately, that's not a real number, but that doesn't mean the various weapons configurations spread throughout the game don't reach to levels that would make most gamers' jaws drop.
According to Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford, the game actually has 17,750,000 different weapons players can find, buy, or tear out of the cold, dead hands of whatever psycho they just fragged. That's a ridiculously large number, and there's no way a single player could ever find them all.
Of course, that doesn't matter because the diversity of weaponry in the game is all about creating a unique playing experience for each and every gamer. Gearbox upped the budget for development solely to introduce a crazy amount of weapons into the game, and in the end, Borderlands 2 boasts twice as many weapons as its predecessor.
