  • Duplication

    Entry location: anywhere outside, away from save points
    Have someone with the weapon/shield you want make a PRIVATE online match,
    (does not work if the two are on the same console)
    go anywhere where there is no save points nearby,

    Have the person join the game, and drop the items AWAY from the save point, then have him leave through the center button leave to dashboard command. do not exit the game through the game! or it will save and u will lose the weapons.

    then invite him back to the game and he should have all of the weapons he dropped back and you should have them too!

    Have fun

Borderlands Easter Eggs

  • Fast Travel (General Knoxx DLC)

    Whenever you need to get to T-bone Junction or somewhere on the opposite side of the DLC, just save and quit when you load you will be at T-bone (Good for getting out of places like the armory or the prison really fast)

Borderlands Glitches

  • Infinite Loot Glitch (General Knoxx DLC)

    Entry location: The Secret Armory Of General Knoxx
    To be able to loot the armory as many times as desired with unlimited time so you can collect loot from all the crates, create a multiplayer game, then reach the "Armory Assault" mission. Once you defeat General Knoxx, enter the armory, and get to the elevator where you turn in the mission. After turning in the mission, it will say you only have three minutes to loot all the crates. Collect as many weapons as possible, but when you have approximately 30 seconds remaining, have everyone exit the game and return to main lobby, with the host being the final person to exit before time expires. Then, have the host create a multiplayer game again, and invite everyone back to the room. Next, travel back to the armory.

    Once inside, continue to General Knoxx, but instead of being sealed in the room with him, the door behind him should now be open. You should be able to walk right into the armory and have unlimited time to open all the crates. Note: If you want to be able to do this multiple times, you must do the following. After you have looted all the crates, have everyone exit to main menu, except the host. The host must either reset his or her Xbox 360 or press Xbox Guide, and go to the Dashboard. This makes it so the game does not save the armory progress for the host. Thus, anything the host picked up during that run will not be saved. So make sure when looting the armory that only the other players pick up items, which they can then give to the host later.

  • Super Speed (Brick Only)

    Entry location: Anywhere
    To do this you need to activate your Berserker skill. Then you need to die, when you start to fight for your kill some to get a second wind. When you get up you will be able to run super fast, throw farther and jump higher. The glitch may go away if you go down again or if you use your Berserker skill.

Borderlands Hints

  • Easy Money, Guns, and Artifacts

    Entry location: Scag Gully
    When you have to defeat Scar the Scag, beat Scar and unlock the weapons crate on the ramp. Then go to the Spawn Point near the entrance of the area. Exit and reload the game. Since it saves automatically, you will have all the equipment you just got. When you reload, it reloads EVERYTHING! Now go back to where Scar is. He will appear again. At a certain level he drops over 300 in cash and an artifact for you. Also, the weapon crate will respawn with new weapons for you, and you get all the experience of killing those nasty scags. Easy everything. Do this as many times as you deem necessary.

  • Guns 'o Plenty

    In the Dhal Highlands where you save Lucky, is the New-U station. Right there above you on the overhang is a silver chest, in the back yard under the powerlines next to the gate is another silver chest and right past that a bit farther down the fence is a red chest. All you have to do is loot all three chests and sell them at one of the shops in side, then exit and load the game again and again until you've maxed out your gold.

  • Invincible Jump

    Entry location: Anywhere
    At any time in the game whenever you face an enemy that can jump or leap to attack you just jump when they jump and you won't take any damage.

  • Easy Money/Weapons

    Entry location: New Haven
    Go to New Haven. On the building right next to Scooter's Place, there is a red loot chest. Take the weapons from it. On the building right next to Helena Pierce's, there is a long silver loot chest. Take the loot from both- equip/sell as necessary. Exit, and then reload the save. The chests will be closed and contain new loot. Repeat as many times as you wish.

  • "You're On a Boat" Achievement Hint

    Entry location: Treacher's Landing
    In Treacher's Landing, you'll have to go all the way to the bottom right of the map to get this. There will be a small dock sticking out of the bottom right. Once you get there, there will be a boat with colored lights. All you need to to is jump onto the boat.
    There is also a red chest on this boat.
    (Also, I found a "Dirty Mag" and some beer cans on the boat.)
