  • Total Trophies: 51 | 39 9 2 1 (20)
    • Offline Trophies: 50
    • Online Trophies: 1 - Friendship Rules
  • Approximate amount of time to platinum: 40-80 hours. (Depending on boosting, co-op & luck!)
  • Minimum number of playthroughs needed: ~1,5 (+3 Partial playthroughs.)
  • Number of missable trophies: 0
  • Glitched trophies: 1 - Challenge Accepted (Temporarily though. See the trophy for more details.)
  • Do cheat codes disable trophies: N/A
  • Extra equipment needed: None. (Second controller does make completing certain challenges easier.)
  • Does difficulty affect trophies: There’s no difficulty option. (Other than a Playthrough 2 which is harder than Playthrough 1.)

Removing updates/Exploits: There are numerous exploits that you can use to obtain some of the trophies. Please note, that if you're going to delete any patches to use these exploits, to make a back-up of your save file. Not only did these patches remove exploits, they fixed quite a few bugs and glitches. Also, playing without patches on a save file that has been patched before, could cause save file corruption.

Step 1) Playthrough 1
Pick any of the 4 classes to your liking and start your adventure. You can choose to play solo, split-screen, or (split-screen) online. However, if you want to obtain the trophies as fast as possible, you’ll want to start out as either the Assassin (Zer0) or the Gunzerker (Salvador), since you need to reach level 31 and 25 with these to obtain 2 class specific trophies. The other 2 class specific trophies can be obtained as soon as you hit level 5. You can of course choose to do this later on when you’re more familiar with the game. Not to mention, the badass stat bonuses carry over to different characters, which will make it easier.

The platinum time for this game depends on many factors. Do you play co-op, solo, do you use boosting methods etc. But most of all, it depends on luck. Why? There are a few trophies which involve quite some luck. The following trophies require some luck: "Cute Loot", "Definitely An Italian Plumber" & "Challenge Accepted". They're pretty easy, but they all depend on a rare spawn. Cute Loot requires a Chubby kill, but it's a rare spawn. Same goes for Definitely An Italian Plumber, which requires a Donkey Mong kill. The Challenge Accepted trophy itself doesn't require much luck, but there's 1 challenge, the Jimmy Jenkins challenge, which requires you to kill Jimmy Jenkins, who also is a rare spawn. Probably even more rare than the other two. For more details, see the specific trophies.

There's one other trophy that relies on a rare spawn, which is the "A Tribute to a Vault Hunter" trophy. He also is a rare spawn, but before the latest patch (1.01), he was a 100% spawn, until a certain progression in the main story. You can, if you really want, delete the patch and get a 100% spawn again. For more info, see the specific trophy.

The game itself shouldn’t be too difficult. If you have problems advancing through the story missions, go back and do some side missions instead. Leveling up is a great way to deal with any difficult situation. You can always leave a mission or area and come back later when you've leveled up some. Sometimes, just leveling up 2 levels will make a great difference. (Also, check out the tips given in Step 2 of this Road Map.)

If you find any purple loot but don’t like it and want to sell it, you might want to hold on to it for a while. There’s a trophy that requires you to have purple rated gear or better equipped in all slots. You shouldn’t have any trouble finding the required weapons, but class mods, relics, grenades and shields aren’t as easy to find. For more info, see the “Decked Out” trophy.

Most trophies should come by normal game play. But keep an eye out on your challenges list (, scroll all the way to the right with . At the Badass rank tabs, press ). You should be focusing on the many side missions first, but there are many specific challenges you’ll need to complete, such as killing enemies with a certain element, or using certain shields. So if you normally don’t use a certain shield or weapon, you might want to keep them, or try to complete those challenges as soon as possible. The challenges do carry over into playthrough 2. Most challenges should complete by normal game play. There are 2 challenges you probably want to keep an eye on from the beginning, else this will require some grinding at the end. It's the 'Open Wide!' Shotgun challenge, which requires 750 up-close kills. And the 'Splish Splash' Rocket Launcher challenge, which requires 200 splash damage kills. For more detailed info, see the “Challenge Accepted” trophy and the challenge guide.

Also, be on the lookout for any ‘!’ on your maps. These are side missions you can start. There are 2 related trophies, one of which is to complete all the side missions in the game. So always check whether you can start new side missions and where you need to complete these. Sometimes you can complete multiple ones at once because their objectives are close to each other. Sadly, you can’t track more than 1 mission at a time. These side missions are also a great way to gain experience and loot. 1 Side Mission ('You.Will.Die (Seriously)' - Terramorphous) can only be done after completing the Main Story Line and you probably want to be level 50 first. Side missions don’t carry over to playthrough 2, but you can always go back to Playthrough 1, where you can complete any side missions you’ve got left. (From the main menu, press , load existing character and choose ‘Normal’. Choose to continue and you’ll spawn wherever you were in Playthrough 2.)

Once you've completed the main story line and did every side mission possible, you probably want to discover every location and uncover any black/grey spots on your map for the "World Traveler" trophy. Doing so will also net you the 4 other (area specific) trophies, the "Urban Explorer", "Arctic Explorer", "Highlands Explorer" and "Blight Explorer" trophy. You can also do this on playthrough 2, since every location you've discovered in Playthrough 1, doesn't have to be re-discovered.

Step 2) Playthrough 2 - True Vault Hunter Mode (1.5 playthrough)
After the last mission, you can back out of the game and choose to continue. However, this time you can choose to start playthrough 2 (True Vault Hunter Mode) or playthrough 1 (normal mode). Playthrough 2 is like a New Game Plus (NG+). It’s exactly the same, however this time you’ll face more, stronger and different kind of enemies (level 31+, more badasses, stronger weapons, better tactics, etc.)

If you're having difficulty with Playthrough 2, read the tips, tricks and strategies at the bottom of this Road Map.

You don’t actually have to complete all the playthrough 2’s story missions. You start playthrough 2 so that you can level up to level 50 for the required trophy, and so that you can kill Terramorphous. You can of course, choose to complete the story again. Once you’ve obtained level 50, you can go back to playthrough 1 and finish the ‘You.Will.Die. (Seriously.)’ mission there, which requires you to kill Terramorphous. Or do this at the end of playthrough 2. For more detailed info, see the "Capped Out…For Now" (Level 50) and "Thresher Thrashed" (Terramorphous) Trophy. To go back to playthrough 1, at the main menu press and load an existing character. Choose 'Normal mode.

Just a heads up for when you beat the Main Story line in Playthrough 2. You'll enter 'Playthrough 2.5' automatically (unofficially named that way since Borderlands 1). All enemies will be level 52 this time around.

Step 3) Clean Up / 3 Partial Playthroughs
Once you’ve done both playthroughs (or 1.5 playthroughs), it’s time to clean up any trophy you’ve left if you haven’t done so already. Either in your first playthrough or your second. Doing it on your first playthrough is easier of course. To go back to playthrough 1, at the main menu press and load an existing character. Choose 'Normal mode.

If you’ve obtained every trophy possible on your character, you’ll have 3 trophies left, which are specific to the classes you haven’t played. You’ll need to play with each character up to level 5 to unlock their action skill. While you can obtain the class specific trophies from the Commando and Siren as soon as you get to level 5, you’ll need to reach level 25 with the Gunzerker and level 31 with the Assassin first. See the specific trophies (“Sabre Rattler”, “Phased and Confused”, “So Much Blood!” & “Unseen Predator”), for detailed info.

You can power level your characters if you want, either in co-op or split-screen. If you have a friend that's a high level (level 50 preferred), or find someone in the Co-Op Partners Thread, if you join their game and they start killing enemies and doing (side) missions, you'll level up very quickly.

The following exploit will no longer work as of Update 1.03!
There's also a small exploit which allows you to power level your characters to level 30 within 15 minutes. To do this, you'll first have to progress through the main story until you meet Tiny Tina. Do the main mission she gives you and she'll give you side missions afterwards. Complete the 'You Are Cordially Invited' mission until you get the 'You Are Cordially Invited: RSVP' mission. You can start this mission, but don't complete it.

Start the mission and do the following:
  1. Get a co-op partner or use split-screen.
  2. 1 player will go to Flesh Stick, while the other will stay at Tiny Tina.
  3. Player 1 will kill Flesh Stick, which will result in a failed mission.
  4. Player 2 will start the mission again by talking to Tiny Tina after failing the mission.
    • Player 2 shouldn't start the mission to fast, else Flesh Stick might glitch and not spawn. If this happens, either leave Tundra Express and go back, or quit the game and continue afterwards.
  5. Repeat from 3.

Summary
So in short, this is what you would want to do.
  1. Go through the story line.
  2. When you reach The Sanctuary, find Michael for the “Tribute To A Vault Hunter” trophy. (Or whenever you travel to The Sanctuary.
  3. Pick up any side missions (marked with a ‘!’ on the map) and complete them if you want.
  4. Most challenges will come by normal game play, but keep an eye out on some of them.
  5. If you find purple/orange loot, even if you don’t like it, you might want to keep it for the “Decked Out” trophy.
  6. Once you’ve completed the story line, start and complete any side mission you’ve got left for the “Did It All“ trophy. (1 Side Mission ('You.Will.Die (Seriously)' - Terramorphous) can only be done after completing the Main Story Line and you probably want to be level 50.)
  7. Once that’s done, complete any challenge you’ve got left.
  8. If you haven’t discovered every location yet, this is probably the time you want to do it.
When that's done.
  1. Start playthrough 2 to get up to level 50.
  2. Kill Terramorphous for the "Thresher Thrashed" trophy, either on playthrough 1 or 2.
And last but not least.
  1. Start 3 new partial playthroughs with the characters you haven’t played yet for their specific trophies, “Sabre Rattler”, “Phased and Confused”, “So Much Blood!” & “Unseen Predator”.

Co-Op / Boosting
Every trophy can also be obtained in Co-op mode. For some however, you need to be the one to perform a certain action to unlock the required trophy, because it won't unlock for everyone, such as killing a Chubby ("Cute Loot" trophy) and killing a level 4 Goliath ("Goliath, Meet David" trophy) for example. Do remember that playing co-op will make the enemies tougher, but the loot better!

On top of that, any side mission that has been completed in co-op, once you return back to your single player game, the game will ask you: "Would you like to skip missions you have already completed in another session?". If you choose to do so, you don't have to do them again.

This can also be done in split-screen, but as of right now, split-screen is bugged! Either sign out of PSN (signing out isn't a guarantee it won't happen though) and play split-screen, or don't play it all. Doing so may reset completely reset your character. If you really wish to use split-screen, make a back-up of your save file(s). Better save than sorry.

Tips, Tricks & Strategies
  • Cover! You can press and stay behind cover when you need it. There are also many obstacles with gaps and holes where you can shoot through. It seems enemies can't shoot through them, or aren't accurate enough to do so.
    Example:
  • Jumping out of cover and shooting is also a great technique.
  • Keep moving! Wait.. You just told me to take cover? Yes. But if you can't take any cover, you'll want to keep moving. Strafing is best.
  • Don't rush it. Sometimes you got to take a moment and regain some shield/health.
  • Watch your surroundings. There are many barrels which you can shoot to explode. While you can use this to your advantage, be careful not to stand too close to one yourself. There are even some plants you can shoot that deal damage.
  • High grounds. There are ladders, rocks and buildings everywhere. Use it to your advantage.
  • Use distance and unaware enemies to your advantage. From a distance, enemies have a hard time hitting you. Enemies are also unaware of you at first, making them an easy target. Sometimes enemies will stay idle or go into an idle position if you keep some distance.
  • When in Fight for your Life stance, you can swap weapons and still move, but very slowly.
  • You can use your surroundings for a second wind, such as barrels and certain plants. You do need to kill an enemy with it.
  • Be careful when you respawn. Enemies and even bosses will regain their health. (Not in Co-op mode though.)
  • Grenades. Don’t forget you have grenades. Throw these by pressing .
  • Make good use of your action skill. Use it by pressing . Also, invest some skillpoints in action skill based skills.
  • Don't forget to invest your skill points when you level up.
  • Use the minimap. It'll tell you enemy locations (red diamonds) when in battle.
  • When in battle and you need to reload, swapping weapons instead can sometimes be a better idea (press , use the or press and hold and use the )
  • You can cancel a part of the reload animation. When a new magazine has been added, you can pretty much do anything (melee , throw grenades etc) to cancel out the last part of the animation. May require a bit practice.
  • Equipment/loot. Always check your equipment and the dropped loot. Check the area for crates, such as ammo crates and weapon crates. Always make sure you have the best items equipped for the situation. (Personal preference of course.) Read the description of your equipment carefully. Sometimes they have extra benefits. Or negatives..
  • Know your enemy. Not only their weaknesses and strengths. Know their tactics. Most enemies that throw something at you can be shot out of air. Some enemies will also throw grenades, or drop a live one when killed. Some will even rush you and commit suicide by using a grenade. There are too many enemies to list all their weaknesses, strengths and whatnot, so it's best you find out yourself and take notice.
  • Each enemy has a body part which causes critical damage when hit. For most enemies, this is the head. Watch for the 'CRITICAL' to pop up.
  • Elemental effects. If you’re shooting an enemy and instead of damage it says ‘RESIST’, quickly swap to a different element. Also, some elements work better against certain enemies.
    • Use Shock (and Corrosive) against enemies with shields (blue bar above their health). (Enemies that can turn invisible, can't do so without a shield.)
    • Corrosive (and Explosive) against armor (Bots / Yellow health Bar / Might have the word 'armor' in their name).
    • Fire works best against human types and insects (Fleshy types/Red Health bar only).
    • Use Slag to deal bonus damage. If you slag an enemy (becomes purple), you'll do bonus damage with all the other elements.
  • Badass ranks. Always check your challenges and which ones are easy to complete. Obtaining Badass ranks means obtaining tokens. With these tokens, you can get many bonus stats. And best of all, your Badass stat bonusses carry over between playthroughs!

Borderland Defender Round Two
Unlocked all Borderlands 2 trophies

Challenge Accepted
Completed level 1 of all non-level-specific challenges with a single character

Glitch warning: This trophy might temporarily glitch on you. If for some reason the trophy doesn't unlock, even though you've completed every required challenge (make sure you've completed the hidden ones to!), complete/level up any random challenge and the trophy should unlock.

General warning: Do not use the following option before obtaining this trophy!
As of update 1.03, players can now reset all challenge progress for a character once they've completed 85% of all non-DLC, non-area-specific challenge levels. This will keep the player's current challenge bonuses and rank, but reset all challenge progress to 0 and allow challenges to be re-completed for additional ranks and bonuses. This option will appear as a tooltip at the bottom of the “challenges” screen within the status menu if the player has met the criteria.


As of Update 1.03, there are non-discovered challenges, will show up as [Undiscovered]. Simply keep playing the game for them to unlock.

Borderlands 2 has a huge list of challenges. Every time you complete a challenge, you’ll gain some Badass Ranks. Press to open the menu. Go to the Badass Rank tab by pressing or . Now press once to see all the challenges. Not all will show up immediately. Some require progression, while others require other challenges to be completed first. Even though some challenges are hidden, you can complete them while they're hidden (you do need to unlock them first before it actually counts as completed of course). For example, if you get 'Splish Splash' to level 5, 'Catch-A-Rocket' will unlock, which requires to kill enemies with direct rocket hits. If you complete 'Splish Splash', but in the meantime also killed enemies with direct rockets, once you unlock 'Catch-A-Rocket' it'll be completed right away.

(There are 2 challenges you probably want to keep an eye on from the beginning, else this will require some grinding at the end. It's the 'Open Wide!' Shotgun challenge, which requires 750 up-close kills. And the 'Splish Splash' Rocket Launcher challenge, which requires 200 splash damage kills.)

When you complete a challenge or get close to completing one, a pop up will appear in the bottom left corner, above your shield/health. A great way to keep track of the challenges you still need to complete, is by highlighting the challenge and pressing to ‘watch’ these and put them on top of your list. Challenges carry over between playthroughs.

You’ll need to complete level 1 of all of these, (you’ll need to see a '2' next to the challenge), except for the level-specific challenges, which can be found at the bottom of the challenges tab, after the 'Miscellaneous' challenges. (With level-specific, they mean the challenges listed under certain areas, such as Southern Shelf, Frostburn Canyon etc. Most of these require Vault Symbols and Echo's to be found and more challenges specific to that area.)

For a complete list and guide:
Bounty Hunter
Completed 20 side missions

See the “Did It All” trophy.

Did It All
Completed all side missions

There are a total of 109 side missions you can complete. Side missions can be found as a ‘!’ on your map. These can be found pretty much anywhere on the map. Some of these are also started by picking up random items, such as ECHO devices/audio tapes. Some side missions will say ‘[Undiscovered]’ instead of their name and have a cryptic text. This means you haven’t found the required item/person to start the side mission. However, the mission is listed under an area, so you know where to look. (Travel to the area and look for a '!') If not, check the side mission guide. It has a complete list of undiscovered missions, with all the cryptic texts. (links below)

You can check how many side missions you've completed by either counting them yourself at the missions tab (press to sort them from the Story mission), or go to the challenges tab (Baddass tab, press once) and scroll down to 'Miscellaneous' and check the 'Sidejacked' challenge. (It only tracks up to 90 side missions though.)

If you go to a quick travel station, you can see at each location on the bottom left if there are any quests you can complete. This is a handy way of going to location by location to complete (and start) your missions. There are a few areas you can't fast travel to, so not all missions show up. Instead, track these missions and the Fast travel station will tell you where to travel to first. If you’ve completed some side missions, it’s always a good idea to turn them in once and a while. Some people might give you a new side mission right afterwards. Once you enter an area, if you have multiple missions, track each mission one by one and look on the map (press once) to see where they’re located. This way you can save yourself quite some time running around the area. If there are no more side missions to be done and you haven't done them all, don't worry. Simply progress through the main story line and more should unlock. There's 1 side mission which will unlock after completing the story, which is the 'You. Will. Die. (Seriously.)'. For more info on that mission, see the "Thresher Thrashed" trophy.

Don’t worry about failing a mission. If you do, you can simply restart it again at the same location where you’ve started it. If you don’t know where to start it again, simply track the mission by highlighting it and press to track it. Some missions have a side objective. These have 2 small green '+' next to the check box. You don't have to complete these, but there's a challenge tied to it, so it's always a good idea to complete some of these. They also grant extra mission bonuses. When a mission ends up in you having 2 choices to where to finish the mission, it doesn't matter which one you choose. If a mission item ever gets stuck somewhere, simply leave the area and come back which makes it respawn to its original location. If that doesn't work, quit to the main menu and continue again. If a mission says its blocked, progress through the main missions and it'll get unblocked later on.

Side missions don’t carry over between playthroughs, but if you’re going to start playthrough 2 and don’t feel like doing many of them again, you can always go back to playthrough 1 and finish the side missions you haven’t done yet. (To go back to Playthrough 1. From the main menu, press and choose 'Normal Mode' after loading an existing character. Choose to continue and you’ll spawn wherever you were in Playthrough 2.) Completing half the side missions on playthrough 1 and the other half on playthrough 2 for example, won't unlock the trophy.

If you play any mission in co-op and you go back to your own game, you’ll get the message: “Would you like to skip missions you have already completed in another session?”. You can either choose to skip these or play them again. Skipping out on them won’t lock you out from this trophy.

For a complete list and where to start them:

Not Quite Dead
Reached level 5

See the “Capped Out…For Now” trophy.

Better Than You Were
Reached level 10

See the “Capped Out…For Now” trophy.

Always Improving
Reached level 25

See the “Capped Out…For Now” trophy.

Capped Out…For Now
Reached level 50

Level 50 requires 3.429.728 experience. You won’t reach level 50 on your first playthrough. After your first playthrough, you’ll be somewhere between level 28 and 32. Trying to reach level 50 on your first playthrough is pretty much impossible, since the enemies won’t scale and only grant 1 exp per kill later on. You can track the exact amount of exp/exp needed at the bottom of your missions tab.

Once you’re done with the first playthrough (completed the main story line), back out of the game to the main menu. From there choose to continue and start playthrough 2 (True Vault Hunter Mode). As mentioned in the roadmap, playthrough 2 is pretty much the same, only the enemies this time are much stronger. You should reach level 50 somewhere on half completing the main story line. If not, you should easily have obtained level 50 after completing your second playthrough.

There are also relics that grant exp bonuses, such as the 'Moxxi's Endowment' Relic for example, which gives an extra 5.0% exp gain from combat. (You can acquire this relic by doing the 'The Good, The Bad, and the Mordecai' side mission. There are probably many more (and better) to be found though.)

Once you’ve obtained level 50, you can return to playthrough 1 if you want and obtain any trophy you’ve got left. To go back to playthrough 1. From the main menu, press , load existing character and choose ‘Normal’. Choose to continue and you’ll spawn wherever you were in Playthrough 2.

If you don't feel like leveling up to 50, you can always try the boosting/power level methods mentioned in the Road Map.

Sabre Rattler
Killed 100 enemies with the Sabre turret

This can only be done with the Commando class, Axton. At level 5, you’ll unlock the Sabre Turret action skill. Aim at where you want to place the turret and press to deploy it. It’ll automatically aim for any target near it. Kill 100 enemies with the turret (the turret needs to get the last hit on an enemy) to unlock this trophy.

Along the way, there are many skills that will help you out greatly, such as:
  1. Sentry: Extra shots fired per burst and longer Turret Duration.
  2. Laser Sight: Increased Turret Accuracy.
  3. Scorched Earth: Adds Multiple Rocket Pods to your Turret.

(There are certain relics which improves your action skill cooldown rate, class mods which can make your skills go beyond level 5 and relics which grant exp bonuses, which can all help out greatly. Especially the class mods.)

Phased and Confused
Phaselocked 100 enemies

This can only be done with the Siren class, Maya. At level 5, you’ll unlock the Phaselock action skill. Aim at an enemy and press to phaselock the enemy, trapping them in a bubble in midair. Doing this will leave them vulnerable, making them an easy target.

Along the way, there are many skills that will help you out greatly, such as:
  1. Ward or Accelerate: Improved Shield Capacity and Shield Recharge Rate / Increased damage and Bullet Speed with all weapons.
  2. Suspension: Increased Phaselock duration.
  3. Converge: Phaselocks pulls nearby enemies.
  4. Inertia: Killing an enemy increases reload speed and shields regenerate quickly.
  5. Quicken: Increased Phaselock cooldown rate.
  6. Sub-Sequence: Phaselock has the ability to seek another target.

(There are certain relics which improves your action skill cooldown rate, class mods which can make your skills go beyond level 5 and relics which grant exp bonuses, which can all help out greatly. Especially the class mods.)

So Much Blood!
Gunzerked continuously for 90 seconds

This can only be done with the Gunzerker class, Salvador. At level 5, you’ll unlock the Gunzerker action skill. Press to activate Gunzerking. This will cause you to dual wield 2 equipped weapons. Use both and to fire your guns. There’s a time limit though and to do it continuously for 90 seconds, you’ll want to invest points in at least 2 skills; ‘Last Longer’ and ‘Yippee Ki Yay’. This requires you to be at least level 21, but you should at least get to level 25 so that you can dump 5 points into Yippee Ki Yay.

Along the way, there are many skills that will help you out greatly, such as:
  1. Filled to the Brim: Increased Magazine size and Ammo Carrying Capacity.
  2. Last Longer: +3 seconds Gunzerking duration per level.
  3. I’m Ready Already: Increased Gunzerking Cooldown Rate.
  4. Steady As She Goes: Reduced recoil while Gunzerking.
  5. Yippee Ki Yay: +0.6s Gunzerking time per level every time an enemy is killed.
With the Yippee Ki Yay skill, with every kill you make in Gunzerking mode, you’ll gain extra gunzerking seconds (+3 at level 5). Now you’ll have to find an area with many low level enemies where you can keep gunzerking to add seconds to your total. (Caustic Caverns is a great place with all the Varkids running around.) Use strong weapons with big magazines so you don't have to keep reloading. Without killing any enemy, you'll stay 35 seconds in Gunzerking mode. Which means you'll have to kill at least 19 enemies (the more the btter) to Gunzerk for 90 seconds. The trophy unlocks once you stop Gunzerking.

(There are certain relics which improves your action skill cooldown rate, class mods which can make your skills go beyond level 5 and relics which grant exp bonuses, which can all help out greatly. Especially the class mods.)

(Please note, this (the video) is not the only and/or easiest way of doing it.)

Unseen Predator
Remained in Zero's Deception mode for ten seconds straight

This can only be done with the Assassin class, Zer0. At level 5, you’ll unlock the Decepti0n action skill.
Use the action skill by pressing . This will make you invisible for a short period of time and will deploy a holographic image of yourself that attract enemies. However, to remain in deception mode for 10 seconds straight, you’ll need the ‘Many Must Fall’ skill, which requires you to be at least level 31. (You can actually obtain this at level 5 by using an exploit. See below for a how-to.)

Along the way, there are many skills that will help you out greatly with this:
  1. Ir0n Hand: More melee damage.
  2. Grim: Reduces cooldown.
  3. F0ll0wthr0ough: Extra movement speed and melee damage.
  4. Execute: Short dash and massive melee damage.
  5. Backstab: Extra melee damage when hitting enemies in the back.
  6. Like the Wind: Increased melee damage while moving.
  7. Many Must Fall: When killing an enemy, you gain extra deception time.
Once you’ve gotten the Many Must Fall skill, go to an area with many enemies (preferably low level so that you can kill them with 1 hit) and try to remain in deception mode for 10 seconds. Without killing any enemies, you'll stay in Deception mode for 5 seconds. Which means you'll have to kill at least 3 enemies (the more the better) to stay in Deception for 10 seconds. The trophy unlocks once you leave Deception.

(There are certain relics which improves your action skill cooldown rate, class mods which can make your skills go beyond level 5 and relics which grant exp bonuses, which can all help out greatly. Especially the class mods.)


Exploit: How to obtain this at level 5.
Enter an online game of a friend or a random person that has the Bandit Technical unlocked. Spawn it and go to the back of the car. Enter the back of the car and as soon as you do, activate Decepti0n. Now keep switching between seats and you should be stay in Decepti0n mode even when the timer hits 0. This might take a few tries as the switching between seats requires a certain timing.

World Traveler
Discovered all named locations

There are area specific trophies, which are “Arctic Explorer”, “Urban Explorer”, “Highlands Explorer” & “Blight Explorer”. Even if you’ve obtain those trophies, it doesn’t necessarily mean you'll obtain this trophy. This one requires you to discover all named locations and uncover all the black spots/grey areas on your map, even if they don’t have a name. Not all locations are mentioned in those 4 trophies either. There are many more locations than just the ones mentioned. If you've obtained any of those 4 trophies, you don't have to go to those locations again. You've discovered all you can there is to discover there.

Before trying to obtain this trophy, progress through the main story line enough, or completely finish it to open up every possible area. Also complete every side mission first (the “Did It All” trophy), doing this will make you discover many areas. Some areas can only be discovered by starting certain side missions. Check the 4 mentioned trophies before to see which Main/Side missions you need to complete. For the rest of the map, either use the world map (spoiler tag) or use the following list.

To discover every location which aren't mentioned in the 4 other trophies, you'll have to start/complete the following.
  • Main Missions: All
  • Side Missions: Clan War: Starting the War / Clan War: First Place / Clan War: Reach the Dead Drop / Clan War: End of the Rainbow / Splinter Group / The Cold Shoulder / / Minecart Mischief / The Lost Treasure / Swallowed Whole.

There's no way of checking what areas you've discovered, other then to keep a checklist of every possible (new) named location when you enter them and compare them with the world map below (spoiler tag). (There are also a few area specific challenges which require you to discover a certain area. You don't have to complete these, but check these challenges to see if you've missed an area.) You can discover every location in co-op and obtain the related trophies. However, If you discover any location in co-op and you return back to single play and want to finish discovering the locations there, you'll need to discover the locations you've discovered in co-op again. Even though they already show up as discovered.

If you're missing any of the 4 mentioned trophies, or the World Explorer trophy itself:
  1. Did you complete the main story?
    • No? Do it!
  2. Did you complete all the side missions?
    • No? Do it!
  3. Have you played co-op? Have you discovered any new locations in co-op? Are you going to finish the explorer trophies in single play?
    • Yes? You'll need to discover these locations in your single player game again.
  4. Did you obtain any of the 4 explorer trophies?
    • Yes? You don't have to go to those locations again.
  5. The map itself should have a complete white outline, or an area with white stripes (death zone). The area itself should be completely filled with the same colour, so you might have missed a small spot (grey areas). Few examples:

Still missing something? These are some easily missed locations:
  • Southern Shelf Bay - Ebonfloe & Ice Flows
  • Three Horns Valley - Southpaw Steam & Power (shortcut back to the entrance)
  • Wildlife Exploitation Preserve - Casa de Mordecai
  • Sawtooth Cauldron - Avie's Camp
  • Eridium Blight - Infused Grotto

Goliath, Meet David
Allowed a Goliath to level up four times before killing him

A Goliath looks like a huge buffed bandit, wearing a helmet. There are a few different types of Goliaths, but you'll need to do this with a normal Goliath. To get him to level up, you’ll have to shoot of his helmet, which can easily be done by just aiming and carefully shooting at it. (You'll hear a distinctive sound when you do.) Once he loses his helmet, he’ll go into a rage mode. When he goes into rage mode, he will start to attack anyone near him. If he kills an enemy, he will gain experience and level up. Make sure you protect him and you might want to weaken stronger enemies so that he can kill them with 1 hit. Don’t get too close though, else he’ll attack you.

A great place to try this is at the Frostburn Canyon entrance (as seen in the video). You'll be able to find 2 Goliaths here. Throughout the game you'll come across many Goliaths, so you can always try at different places. The easiest way of doing this is by leveling up and by using a weak weapon on a low level Goliath, so you won't instantly kill the Goliath or get yourself killed. If you’re playing co-op, you need to be the one to kill the Goliath to unlock the trophy.

You’ll have to make sure he levels up 5 times. Once he reaches level 6, his name will change to ‘Fatal God-Liath’. He’ll get a different name every time he levels up. An orange aura will also appear when he levels. The names are as followed:
  • Level 1: Goliath
  • Level 2: Raging Goliath
  • Level 3: Badass Goliath
  • Level 4: Super Badass Goliath
  • Level 5: Ultimate Badass Goliath
  • Level 6: Fatal God-Liath.


Went Five Rounds
Completed Round 5 of any Circle of Slaughter

You can find the Circle of Slaughter at 3 different locations.
  1. The first location is at The Fridge, called Fink's Slaughterhouse. This is the easier CoS of the two (level 17-20). You’ll get here automatically when you progress through the main story line. If you fast travel here, it’s directly in front of you, called the Fink’s Slaughterhouse. Enter it and talk to Frink. When you accept the mission, go inside and walk up the stairs in the middle and push the button to start the CoS.
  2. The second location is at Ore Chasm. This is the harder CoS of the two (level 27-29). It’s found by going to the ‘Eridium Blight’ area. (You’ll discover Eridium Blight by progressing through the main story line.) Talk to the Innuendobot 5000. When you accept the mission, go through the doors and down the elevator. Step inside the gigantic circle on the ground to start the CoS.
  3. While it isn't a Circle of Slaughter, you can also complete the Creature Slaughter Dome DLC at the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve to obtain this trophy. (Thanks Terminator)
(It doesn't matter which one you complete for this trophy, but you need to complete them both anyway. Both of these Circle of Slaughters consist of 5 side missions, 1 for each wave. They all need to be completed for the "Did It All" trophy, which requires you to complete every side mission.)

Each progressing round consists of 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 waves with an increase of difficulty per wave and round. (Even though, for example, round 2 says 4 waves, as soon as you complete wave 3/4 and it hits wave 4/4, the round has been completed.) There are also side objectives, where you'll have to kill a number of enemies with critical hits. You don't have to complete these do you want to advance through the rounds/waves.

Be prepared for some slaughter, so stock up on ammo and weapons. The enemies itself don’t drop much ammo, so get yourself some increases magazines from the Black Market if necessary. When you fail a wave, you’ll fail the whole round and you’ll have to start over. You don’t have to do all 5 rounds at once. You can complete as many as you want and return later on to start where you’ve left off. You can’t combine the 2 different Circles of Slaughter. Meaning, if you do 2 rounds at Fridge, you won’t start at round 3 at Ore Chasm.

If you're having difficulty with this, either level up some more or you could always try it in co-op. The enemies become tougher, but with a player controlled character on your side, you should have nothing to worry about. You can of course always get help from a level 50 if needed. (You can also start playthrough 2 (True Vault Hunter Mode) if you've finished Playthrough 1 (Normal Mode) and level up to level 50 and return back to Playthrough 1. Level 50 versus level 20-30's? Easy!)

Fridge:
This CoS will spawn bandits enemies, so you mainly want to use Fire weapons. Also a great tactic, Goliaths will spawn. Shoot of their helmets and they will help you out a bit. Don’t let them level up to much though, else they might just pound you to the next spawn station.

A great hiding place, seems to be the pipes stacked on each other on the ground. (When you push the button to start the round, it's on the left of you.) Watch out with enemies from above though. Crouch to get the most protection. Also be careful with rushing bandits. Mostly the suicide and Badass versions. Not to mention, enemy spawns on the lower floor, right in front of you. Staying on the tower might seem like a good idea, but many bandits will simply jump towards you, or throw grenades at you.

Ore Chasm:
This Cos will spawn Hyperion enemies (bots), so you mainly want to use Corrosive and Explosive weapons. Fire will also work great against the engineers. Shooting off the legs of the bots is a great way to slow them down. If any ION bot puts up a shield, throw an 'Area of Effect' (AoE) grenade at him. It will spin and try to track it for awhile, but will soon attach to the ground next to it and damage the bot, even with its shield up.

A great hiding place for this one would be the 2 platforms hanging over the cliff in the back. (Be careful not to drop down into the lava!) Most of the enemies won’t get to you and you got some great cover. And when having enough distance, some enemies will go idle, which is a great time to recover some shield if necessary, or attack them of course. (Be careful in round 4 though, an enemy drop ship will appear right behind you.) Aim for their critical spots, which are their 'limbs'. Shoot them off to kill them quickly. You know where the enemies will spawn, because of a red light that will start to signal. So if it's close to you, better find a different spot.

Sugar Daddy
Tipped Moxxi $10,000

Once you reach the Sanctuary, go to the Moxxxis bar. There's a tipping jar on the bar. Either press to tip $100, or press to tip $1.000. Tip her an accumulative amount of $10.000 to unlock the trophy.

Money itself isn’t hard to come by. You’ll earn money by doing pretty much anything in Borderlands. Killing enemies, chests, loot, missions etc. However, if you don’t want to lose the money, do the following:
  • Have $10.000
  • Go to Moxxi.
  • Save your game and continue. ( > Quit > Save > Continue.)
  • Tip her the $10.000 and wait for the trophy to unlock.
  • Quit the game via the XMB. (Press the PS button on your controller and choose to quit game.)
  • Once back in the game, you’ll have the trophy and still got your money.

Decked Out
Had Purple-rated gear or better equipped in every slot

You’ll need to fill up all 8 slots, consisting of:
  • Weapons x 4
  • Class Mod
  • Grenades
  • Shield
  • Relic

Each of these slots needs to have a piece of equipment equipped, with either a purple or an orange weapon. Purple or better rated gear can be found throughout the game. Simply by looting chests, enemies loot, mission rewards and by using the slot machines at MoXXXis in the Sanctuary. You can also choose to buy the gear at shops if you would like to. Most bosses respawn if you quit to the main menu and continue afterwards. Most of them have a chance to drop some purple or orange loot, so farm them if needed. Click here for a complete list with bosses and missions that drop/give Legendary. If you're having a hard time obtaining purple/orange equipment, you can always use the Trading Thread.

You should advance through the main story first and complete every side mission. You're bound to find many purple-rated, or even orange gear as loot or as a mission reward.

These are all the color codes in Borderlands 2:
  • White
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Purple
  • Magenta (E-Tech)
  • Orange

If you find any purple or orange gear which you don’t like, but want to keep for this trophy, go to Crimson Raiders HQ at the Sanctuary. There’s a vault on the second floor where you can store your items. (One of the main missions requires you to go there and open the storage vault.) You shouldn’t have any trouble finding 4 or more purple/orange weapons, but grenades, shields, class mods and especially relics are a little harder to obtain.

You can also use Golden Keys (can't be found in game, need to be obtained via Gearbox's Shift) and open the Golden Chest in Sanctuary. This chest contains purple loot only.

There's also a great farming method with a certain story boss. This can be done with any boss of course, but this one drops a lot of loot and has a high chance of dropping rare loot, not to mention a very easy method to kill it.
Do not read this method if you don't want any spoilers. You've been warned!

Cute Loot
Killed a Chubby

Few enemies in the game have a Chubby version. (In other words, a fat version.) These spawns are completely random, so you might unlock this trophy randomly. There’s no real spawn for these, so all you can do is to be on the lookout for a Chubby spawn, or just keep playing until this unlocks at some point. A great place to try and get it to spawn, is either the Caustic Caverns or Tundra Express (- Farmhouse). Farm the Varkids right at the beginning, where you spawn. If none spawns, quit to the main menu and continue afterwards to try again. This will make all enemies respawn in that area. (If you’re playing co-op, you need to be the one to kill the Chubby to unlock the trophy.)

An extra tip if you're going to farm Varkids. When a Varkid enters its pod, while the name doesn't suggest it, it might transform into a chubby. So if none spawn, let them hatch in their pod and you'll have a change a Chubby might come out instead.

The following enemies have a Chubby version and can be found at the following places:
  • Midget - Southern Shelf, Three Horns, Southpaw, Frostburn Canyon, The Dust, Bloodshot Stronghold, Bloodshot Ramparts, Tundra Express, The Fridge, Thousand Cuts, Lynchwood, Sawtooth Cauldron.
  • Rakk - The sky..
  • Skag - Three Horns, The Dust, Tundra Express, Wildlife Exploitation Preserve, Eridium Blight, Arid Nexus - Badlands, Arid Nexus - Boneyard.
  • Spiderant - Frostburn Canyon, The Dust, Caustic Caverns.
  • Stalker - The Highlands, The Fridge, Wildlife Exploitation Preserve.
  • Varkid - Tundra Express, Caustic Caverns.

If you own the "Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage" DLC, there's a side mission called 'Gas Guzzlers'. There is a 100% Chubby Rakk spawn in that mission. Thank you the_requiem!

Tribute To A Vault Hunter
Got an item from Michael Mamaril

Michael Mamaril (he wears glasses and is heavily equipped with weapons) can be found in Sanctuary at rare occasions. He was a 100% spawn before the 'Rising Action' main story. After this main story mission, he would go back to it's original rare spawn rate, which now has been fixed in the latest patch (1.01). With this patch installed, he will now be a rare spawn before and after what happens with Sanctuary.

If you're really having trouble finding Michael, you can always delete the latest patch and find him with a 100% spawn rate before the 'Rising Action' main story mission. Once you've obtained the trophy download/install the patch again.
To delete the latest patch, at the XMB, go to Game > Game Data > Borderlands 2 Additional Content. Hit and delete it. Now, this will delete any DLC, but don't worry, you can redownload all this for free again. (Anything you buy in the PSN store or download, can be downloaded unlimited times for free on the same PSN account.) Now obtain the trophy, quit the game and redownload the patch (and any DLC you have).


He can be found at different locations in the Sanctuary.
  • Marcus’ Gun Shop
  • MoXXXis. Either at the bar or the piano in the far back corner.
  • Scooters.
  • Zed.
  • Alleyway where you receive the ‘Claptrap’s Secret Stash’ mission.
  • In the center of the town.
  • Crimson HQ.
  • Black Market.
  • Alleyway close to Scooters. When facing the entrance to Scooters, turn right and go up the stairs. One of the alleyways on the right.

Definitely An Italian Plumber
Killed Donkey Mong

Donkey Mong can be found in the Eridium Blight area. You’ll get here by progressing through the main story line. Donkey Mong looks like a normal Bullymong. He throws explosives barrels instead of rocks.

He has 2 spawn locations.
  • The first is a bit North-West of the Ore Chasm map exit. A quick farming method. Go to Ore Chasm and go back to Eridium Blight. If you quit and continue afterwards, you'll spawn very close to this spawn location.
  • The second is all the way in the East. Follow the road (don't go through the Hyperion gate), you'll eventually cross a bridge. Immediately turn right and take the left path.

If he’s not there, either leave the area and return, or quit to the main menu and choose to continue afterwards. Once back, use the catch-a-ride if you choose to quit to the main menu, and preferably spawn a Bandit Technical so you can easily deal with Donkey Mong. It’s a very rare spawn. Don't worry about dieing. As long as you don't quit or leave Eridium Blight, he will keep spawning until you kill him.


High-Flying Hurler
Killed a flying enemy with a thrown Tediore weapon

Tediore weapons (check the weapon stats, the name is listed below) have a special ability, so to say. Every time you reload the gun (you either reload manually or you have 0 bullets left in your magazine) the weapon will get thrown away, going to wherever you got your crosshair and explode on impact. Don’t worry, a new weapon will automatically appear in your hand. The more bullets left in your magazine, the higher the damage.

Find a flying enemy (preferably a group of Rakks) and do some damage to get their health to a low if needed. However, you should be able to 1 hit them with 1 thrown Tediore weapon pretty quickly. When they charge you, aim at them and reload your Tediore weapon.

Using the Sirens (Maya) action skill, the Phaselock, on a flying enemy to stop it mid-air will not work with this trophy.

Token Gesture
Redeemed 25 tokens

You gain tokens by gaining Badass Ranks. Open your menu by pressing and go all the way to the right with , to the Badass tab. Every time you complete one of the challenges, you’ll gain a Badass rank. After every few Badass ranks, you’ll gain Tokens, which you can use to acquire bonus stats. To redeem your tokens, simply select ‘Redeem Token!’ (it’s highlighted automatically) and press to redeem them. You get to choose from a few random stats every time you redeem one.

Every new token, requires more Badass ranks. You get more Badass ranks depending on the level of the challenge you complete. You’ll need a Badass rank of about 329 to obtain 25 tokens.

The best about these stats is that they carry over between playthroughs and characters. So you can pretty much build up an infinite amount of Badass ranks, which means you can could possibly max out many bonus stats.

Build Buster
Killed a Constructor without it ever building another bot

Constructors are huge yellow robots that have many defense mechanisms to kill you. (Turrets, rockets, lasers.) They can also build new bots to attack you. For this trophy, you want to kill the constructor, before it builds any bot. You’ll notice it building other bots, when it aims at the ground and a blue hologram will appear. You’ll also see a bot being build from the feet up. If it does, quickly destroy the Constructor or deal enough damage to cancel it out. It hardly ever seem to build any, or at least that’s what I’ve noticed.

The first constructor you’ll ever come across is in the ‘The Highlands - Outwash’ area. (You’ll get here simply by following the main story missions.) Once you get to the other side of the river, one will appear from behind the gates. If you’re high leveled, you should have no trouble killing It at all. You’ll want to aim for his red eye, which does the most damage. He can put up a shield in front of it though, but you can still damage the constructor, but not as much.

There’s a Constructor which respawns in the Hyperion base in the Highlands. If you’re having trouble with this trophy, simply level up to about level 20+ and go back and you should have no trouble killing it within seconds before it can construct a bot. However, throughout the main story line you’ll come across multiple Constructors.

The constructor has some pretty nasty attacks and defenses.
  • Normal targeting missiles. These appear as red dots coming towards you. These go in a straight line, so they're easy to dodge. You can also shoot these down.
  • Heath seeking missiles. These missiles will come after you, so either take cover, or shoot them down. Cover is the best option, because of the many missiles.
  • Nukes. Yes, it can use nukes. When this happens, you better run, take cover below something, or shoot it down.
  • Turrets. Is can deploy turrets close to itself. These can do some pretty heavy damage. So keep distance or destroy them.
  • Shield. It can put up a shield in front of its critical spot, its eye. You can still damage the bot, but not as much.
  • Building bots. That's why it's called a Constructor. It can construct bots. It can build pretty much any bot. Be careful though, a Badass Constructor will build Badass bots.

There’s also a very cheap tactic (as shown in the video below) to obtain this without any real effort. Once the Constructor spawns when you cross the river, get yourself killed. You’ll get respawned back on the other side of the river. Go stand where you have to activate the storage lift. Instead of crossing over, use a sniper rifle or any other ranged weapon to shoot the idle Constructor. Be careful though, some bots may cross the river and start to flank you.
This trick can be used pretty much with any Constructor where you can get enough distance but are still able to damage it. (Still need to be careful with missiles sometimes.)

How Do I Look?
Unlocked 10 customization items

You can gain customization items by completing quests, locations, simply as loot, killing certain enemies, completing challenges or by using the slot machines. You’ll need to find 10 in total and use them to unlock them. Once you receive a customization item, press to open your menu. Scroll to the weapons tab and press once. Go to customization, select the item and press . Once you’ve done this 10 times, the trophy unlocks.

If you have a Borderlands 1 Save File, the game will detect it and grant you 2 extra customization items per character, which means a total of 8 items. Another way of earning customization items is with special SHiFT codes that grant you new skins.

Friendship Rules
Revived someone from "Fight for Your Life!" that is on your friends list

When one of your friends gets his/her health to 0, they will go in a ‘Fight for Your Life!’ stance. A timer will appear on their screen. If they kill an enemy before the timer runs out, they’ll get back up their feet, a ‘Second Wind’. If not, they’ll respawn at the last checkpoint. When your friend goes into the ‘Fight for Your Life’ stance, run up to them (don’t get yourself killed!) and press and hold to revive them. This won't work with randoms online. They actually need to be a friend on your PSN Friends list.

If you don't have anyone on your list to do this with, use the Co-Op Partners Thread.

(Doing this in split-screen, even if you choose a PSN account that’s on your friendslist, doesn’t seem to work. Not sure if it has anything to do with the splitscreen bug that has been going on.)

Better Than Money
Purchased 5 items from the black market

The black market can be found in the Sanctuary, all the way on the east side of the map. You’ll have to visit this shop when doing a main story mission. The shop is also marked on the map, like any other. The salesman is behind a door. You’ll need to purchase 5 items from him. These items increase your ammo limit, inventory size etc.

Instead of paying with money, you’ll have to pay with Eridium. The total amount of Eridium you have can be found by opening your menu, go to weapons and look at the bottom of the tab. It’s the big purple E. You’ll need at least 20 Eridium to buy 5 items from the market. (Each first item you buy of a certain type, costs 4 Eridium. The next upgrade is 8 Eridium and keeps rising with every upgrade.)

Eridium can be found by opening chests, loot from enemies, mission rewards etc. They’re purple when dropped and you’ll have to pick them up yourself, unlike cash.

Up High, Down Low
Gave Claptrap a high five

Once you reach the Sanctuary, Claptrap will have a short and simple mission for you to complete. You can find him as a ‘!’ on the map (! = new mission). His mission is called the ‘Claptrap’s Secret Stash' mission. It requires you to do, well, basically nothing. Once you hand in the mission, press to give Claptrap a High Five. However, that’s not it. He will raise his arm. Quickly aim closely at his hand and press to melee it. If done correctly he’ll say “That’s what I’m talking about!”. Don’t worry though if you’ve missed it, there are more opportunities.

You can even give him infinite high fives after a certain side mission. Once you progress through the main story line, you’ll come across an area called ‘Opportunity’, where you can start the ‘Statuesque’ side mission. It requires you to defend a Constructor. I won’t spoil anything, but once you’ve completed the mission and hand it in to Claptrap, you can give him infinite high fives afterwards.

What does it mean?
I can't even capture it on my camera

Go to the Highlands area. Connecting the larger 2 piece of land, is a road. On the right side of it, on top of a hill is a Hyperion base. Close to one of the ‘The Highlands - Outwash’ exit, is a Catch-A-Ride. That’s where the entrance is. If you follow the path, you’ll get attacked by Hyperion engineers and bots. Kill them. At the end of the road, is a stairs on your right. Instead of going there, head left, onto the rocks, to the back of the base. You’ll see a small camp. Walk over there and a dialogue will automatically start. Enjoy the dialogue, the view and just wait for the trophy to unlock.

A different path you can take is to take the stairs as mentioned above and keep following the road until you’re on top of a small bridge where a Constructor will spawn. (You passed under the bridge before you went up the first stairs.) Cross the bridge and look down the cliff in front of you. You should see the small camp.



Well That Was Easy
Completed the mission "Shoot This Guy in the Face"

This is a side mission, which you can start at the ‘Thousand Cuts’ area. You’ll discover this are by going through the main story line, in the ‘The Once and Future Slab’ mission. You can see the mission as a ‘!’ on your map. It’s when you pass the bridge. Accept the mission from ‘Face McShooty’. He wants you to shoot him in the face. Not the legs, not the arms, the face. Equip any weapon (preferably not a shotgun or rocket launcher of course) and shoot him in the face.


Thresher Thrashed
Defeated Terramorphous the Invincible

Once you’ve completed your first playthrough, go back to the Sanctuary and a new side missions has appeared at Tannis at the Crimson HQ. (Look for the ‘!’.) She will give you the mission ‘You. Will. Die. (Seriously.). This mission requires you to kill Terramorphous. But as you can see, the required level is level 50. You won’t be able to do it. You’ll have to start Playthrough 2 first and level up to level 50 to even have a chance against Terramorphous. However, when starting Playthrough 2, this mission will disappear, so you’ll either have to finish playthrough 2, or you can also go back to playthrough 1 when you’ve leveled up to 50 and start the side mission there. Terramorphous in Playthrough 2 has more health.

Terramorphous is a raid boss, so in theory, you'll have to defeat it with multiple persons. It's possible to solo him, more on that later. If you're having trouble with Terramorphous and don't have any friends to battle him with, you can always try the Co-Op Partners Thread. Only the player dealing the final blow will obtain the trophy though.
If you need better gear, try the Trading Thread.

To get to his peak, you'll need to have 4 Eridium with you. Once you get to the Terramorphous peak, you'll have to drop down and use the horn. This will make it spawn. He will come out of the ground and occasionally go back in. If you deal enough damage quickly enough, he won't hit you and just keep going back in the ground and pop out again. Hit the yellow 'orbs' to deal critical damage. You can slag Terra, so use that your advantage. A few things you needs to be careful off:
  • His 'arms'. If it hits you with its arms, you'll go flying high. And since you're on a peak, you can easily get knocked off and this will mean an instant death. If you stay at the back and he hits you, you'll simply get knocked against the rocks.
  • His tentacles. He has multiple tentacles, each with different attacks. Some throw rocks at you, some use lasers, while others are fire tentacles. You'll want to deal with these quickly, by shooting their weak spot, which is that big dot in the middle of it.
  • You can see where he's going to pop out of the ground. Make sure you're not standing close or right on top of it.

There's an exploit, where you can sit behind a rock where it won't be able to hit you with its tentacles. It doesn't always fully protect you, but it does most of the time. For the location and extra info, please see this video.

As of Update 1.03, the Bee has been nerfed. It's still powerful, but not as powerful as before.
A great item to use against Terramorphous which will make it A LOT easier, is 'The Bee' shield. You can get it by farming 'Hunter Hellquist' at the 'Arid Nexus - Badlands'. To be able to farm him, you'll have to start the 'This Just In' side mission and complete it. You can farm him afterwards, by killing him and quitting to the main menu and continue afterwards, which will make him respawn. What makes this so powerful, is the AMP Damage and the AMP drain of 0. Each AMP shot gives your next shot a bonus damage. The Bee has no shield drain after each shot, which means as long as you don't get hit, you'll keep doing that bonus damage. AMP Damage of 40-50K? Multiply that with your normal damage, and you know why it's so damn powerful.

Feels Like The First Time
Opened the chest at the bus stop in Fyrestone

One of the main story missions, called ‘Tail and Trouble’ requires you to visit the ‘Arid Nexus’ area Once you reach the Arid Nexus, you should continue onwards until you reach ‘Arid Nexus - Badlands’.

If you’ve played Borderlands 1, this will look very familiar, but a bit different. (You should probably already know where the chest is if so.) Continue onwards till the very North of the Badlands (it’s where you began as a Vault Hunter in BL1.) You should see a red building. You can jump on top of it via the stairs at the back. Jump on the railing, on to the lower roof and from there jump on the railing on your left. Open the red chest on the roof.
