Challenge Accepted Trophy

  • Challenge Accepted

     

    Complete the first rank of all non-level-specific challenges with a single character.

    (Online or 2 Controllers needed)

    Notes:
    • The order these challenge appear in seems to have a randomized element to them so they might not appear in the same order as I've written them below.
    • I've included some pointers for certain challenges since some of them can be confusing.
    • See here for the boosting thread if you need help with the co-op related challenges: LINK
    • Unfortunately, I don't know the unlock requirements for the "High Rate of Ire", "Open Wide!" and "Faceful of Buckshot" challenges because they are different from the original game but I didn't realize that until it was too late to make notes.
    • The Majority of these challenges are completed by getting them to Lv1 but some require Lv5. I have noted the relevant unlock requirements where necessary.
    To see the full list of available challenges, go: tp.png => Badass Rank. Here is the full list of all the non-level-specific challenges in the game (credit to the Official Borderlands Wiki for certain unlock requirements):

    Cheerful Green Giants - Kill treants - These guys only spawn in the Forest map.
    Ew Ew Ew Ew - Kill spiders
    Bone Breaker - Kill skeletons
    Can't Fool Me - Kill mimics (The best place to farm these, is the underground room in the Winged Storm map, which opens up after killing the Ancient Dragons of Destruction: LINK. Also note that mimics can only spawn from chests that look like this: LINK)
    Orcs Should Perish - Kill orcs
    Fus Rah Die - Kill dragons (The best place to farm these is the initial entrance to the Mines of Averice: LINK)

    Gun Runner - Pick up or purchase weapons.
    Open Pandora's Boxes - Open lootable crates, lockers and other objects (e.g. pots, skag piles, rubbish piles etc.). This is easily farmed in Flamerock Refuge, because there are loads of loottable objects there.
    Purple Reign - Loot or purchase purple-rarity items (You will complete the first rank of this when Mr Torgue gives you a Purple Rarity SDU at the end of the mission "A Role-Playing Game").
    Another Man's Treasure - Loot or purchase white items.

    Psst, Hey Buddy... - Trade with other players (2 controllers/players required).
    Dolla Dolla Bills, Y'all - Collect Dollars from cash drops (The Handsome Sorcerer and the ancient Dragons of Destruction drops tons of cash).
    For the Hoard! - Save a lot of Money (This challenge isn't cumulative, therefore you need to have all the required funds on you in 1 lump sum).
    Wholesale - Sell items to vending machines (You can farm this by fast traveling to the Unassuming Docks, emptying all of the chests and pots near the Fast Travel station, then fast traveling back to Flamerock Refuge and selling everything. Now save, quit, reload and do it all over again - rinse and repeat until you have completed the challenge).

    Health and Recovery:

    Notes:
    • I strongly recommend leaving Easy mode off for these challenges, else they will be much harder to complete than they absolutely should be.
    • For the Second Wind challenges, I strongly recommend using using Maliwan weapons and having a high baddass rank for Elemental Effect and Chance, that way you will have a much higher chance of applying a DoT to your target enemy. You can make these challenges even easier by unequipping your shield.
    I'm Back! Shocked? - Get Second Winds by killing enemies with a shock DoT (damage over time).
    Heal Plz - Recover health.
    I'll just Help Myself - Get Second Winds by killing an enemy.
    Badass Bingo - Get Second Winds by killing badass enemies.
    This Is No Time For Lazy! - Revive a co-op partner (2 controllers/players required - You need 1 revive to get Friendship Rules trophy_silver.png and 5 to complete this challenge).
    Death, Wind and Fire - Get Second Winds by killing enemies with an incendiary DoT (damage over time). - Hidden, unhide by completing the first level of "Cowering Inferno".
    Green Meanie - Get Second Winds by killing enemies with a corrosive DoT (damage over time).

    Shields:

    Notes:
    • I strongly recommend leaving Easy mode off for these challenges, else they will be much harder to complete than they absolutely should be.
    • I'm not sure if the Kite shields count twards any of these challenges.
    Super Novas - Kill enemies with a Nova shield burst (The blast has a short wind up period before it goes off, therefore you need to stay close to your target until that happens. This challenge can be sped up by going to the Forest and letting yourself get surrounded by spiders).

    Game of Thorns - Kill enemies with reflected damage from a Spike shield.
    Amp it Up - Kill enemies while buffed by an Amplify shield (You only get 1 Amp shot per-full shield recharge so make it count).

    Rocket Launcher:

    Notes:
    • I strongly recommend leaving Easy mode off for the Second Wind challenge, else it will be much harder to complete than it absolutely should be.
    • The Norfleet works wonders for these challenges if you manage to get one during the Ghost King fight.
    • Rocket Launcher ammo is extremely scarce and hard to find until approximately the mid-point of the story.

    Sniper Rifle:

    Notes:
    • I strongly recommend leaving Easy mode off for the Second Wind challenge, else it will be much harder to complete than it absolutely should be.
    • The "Surprise!" challenge is rumoured to be glitchy but I cannot confirm this, because I had no issue getting it done with any of my 6 characters. Credit to Roronora_Zoro666 for this info.

    Surprise! - Kill unaware enemies with sniper rifles (This means you have to get a one shot kill with a sniper rifle, on an enemy who hasn't seen you yet).

    General Combat:

    Knee-Deep in Brass - Fire a lot of rounds.

    Not Full of Monkeys - Kill enemies with station any barrels (The fastest way to get this done, is by shooting the barrels and subsequently killing the skeletons next to them, on the island where you find the first riddle during the "Fake Geek Guy" side mission: LINK).
    ... To Pay the Bills - Kill enemies while using your Action Skill (Your Action Skill doesn't unlock until you reach Lv2).
