Most recently, I have been on a bit of an achievement kick with Borderlands. Partially because Borderlands 2 is only 71 days away!! More importantly however, it's because of a crazy realization I had: Borderlands is the first game I would ever have completed 100%. I'm not the type of gamer who will pick up any old game, try it, and play the crap out of it. That said, I'm always up for trying a new game, but for me to purchase the game (used or brand new) and really commit to it, that takes a really special game for me.


 So anywho, back to my kick-butt milestone. There are a total of 80 achievements in Borderlands, some of which are secret, some are commonplace, and some are a bit tricky. I currently have 61 out of 80, and here are the ones I am missing:

 Can't We Get BEYOND the Thunderdome?

  Win an Arena Match-25 G

 There's no "I" in "Team"

Complete 15 Missions in Co-Op-30 G

 Truly Outrageous

   Kill an enemy with the Siren's action skill-15 G

 Reckless Abandon

     Kill 15 enemies with the Berserker's action skill-15 G

 Small Tournament

      Complete the Prove Yourself mission-10 G


     Reached the end of the larger challenge in the Hell-Burbia coliseum-25 G

  The Angelic Ruins

Reach the end of the larger challenge in The Angelic Ruins coliseum-25 G

 The Gully

Reach the end of the larger challenge in The Gully coliseum-25 G

 Big Tournament

Reach the end of the 3 larger challenges with one character-40 G


Kill Crawmerax the Invincible-50 G

 Ding! Overleveled

 Ding! Overleveled to 11

 The Lubricator

Find 25 oil cans-10 G


Collect 15 Clap-Trap bobbleheads-10 G

 What a party!

 Secret Achievement

There are 3 secret achievements I am still missing, they are:

United We Stand- Defeat the Rakk Hive, the Vault Boss, Sledge, Krom, or Flynt in a co-op game-35G

You're on a boat!-Bet you never thought you'd be here-15 G

Sucker born every minute-Paid for a worthless tour of the world's largest bullet-10 G


As you can see, some of these are relatively easy, and I just need to get the motivation to take care of them or someone to play the game with. I am saving the tournament challenges for last, because they will take the longest and I find them the least rewarding, especially because the only XP you get is for completing the challenges. 

A big thanks to, their website is killer.
