Welcome to the 21st Borderlands thread!
There is a new Borderlands game! You can play it now on most things!
Here are some useful links shamelessly stolen from reddit:
Goes without saying that these resources are full of location + legendary loot spoilers, so be wary of that.
Mapgenie.io's full interactive galaxy/planet map
This helped me the most for finding that one red chest I missed on each map. It's basically what the title says; it has every single area on every single planet with all of the collectibles, crew rewards, and other hidden extras the game has. It's the best GPS I've found for the game so far. Extremely well made and full props go towards the creators of mapgenie.io.
Full Legendary + Unique Spreadsheet
(with updated drop sources)
This is helpful for learning what specific boss I should farm if I want a specific piece of gear. It's worth noting that a lot of the legendaries this time around are world drops, going back to borderlands 1's style of loot drops. Still, very good for finding out what the legendary upgrade is to your favourite purple gun.
Full credit goes to u/Tonydml. Very well organised and updated.
Guardian Rank Perk Warning
Hollow point was listed here due to the friendly fire, but the most recent hotfix has disabled this temporarily as a fix until the next patch.
Shield Reboot (Second last perk in Survivor tree): This perk regens your shields automatically whenever you get a kill. Sounds great, until you realize that roid shields and any shield that provides a bonus when empty are delayed by this. Melee amara becomes very difficult to chain kills with when the roid shield regens after any kill and negates your melee damage boost.
Whenever you load into the game from the main menu, the game selects a random set of modifiers for each map in the game. As long as you do not save/quit to menu, those modifier sets will remain the same on their respective maps.
Save/quitting to menu can be abused to shuffle the modifiers in your favour, increasing either your elemental damage, gun damage, and removing bullet deflection. (You can check the modifiers you have on your map screen)
Playing offline/without hotfixes gives you 900% xp for guardian ranks at Mayhem 3 and will provide you the pre-hotfix loot drops and the guaranteed loot midget spawn on Eden-6.
Weapon DPS Calculator
This is a program made by u/internprimas that takes the statistics on a certain gun and calculates the optimal DPS the weapon has. It doesn't interfere with the game at all, and is just used within your browser. I'm unfamiliar with github modding, but the program can potentially be modified to include more statistics if other creators want to try messing with it. For the general public though it's good for non-unique DPS calculating.
I hope you've enjoyed my slap-dash thread, and may Moxxi's slot machines always pay out in legendary.
