Hello, it's me again, Keith Schuler, a Senior Designer on Borderlands 2. For today's edition of Inside the Box, I wanted to talk a little bit about Angel's introduction in Control Core Angel. By the way, while my articles are often a minefield of spoilers, I wanted to offer an extra cautionary note this time. If you haven't played through Control Core Angel yet, there are some serious spoilers here. You have been warned!

What if you could get loot in Borderlands 2 just by scanning codes around you in real life? Introducing LootTheWorld, a free mobile app now available for iOS and Android devices in the United States!

Use LootTheWorld to scan bar codes and QR wherever you go to see what treasures await and manage your collection of virtual goods. Then, in conjunction with your SHiFT account, you can unlock those items in-game – provided you have the stamps to spend, that is… (By the way, if you came out to our Community Day in Dallas this past September, check your badge for a QR code that'll give you some extra stamps.)

LootTheWorld is now available as a free download for iOS from iTunes and Android via Google Play in the United States. Go out there and get looting – be sure to keep an eye on the Borderlands Facebook (facebook.com/borderlandsgame) for the chance to obtain more stamps in the future!

Borderlands 2 Hot Fixes (12/10)

12.10.13 - Chris Faylor

New hot fixes for Borderlands 2 are now rolling out on PC / Mac, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3!

Borderlands 2 Hot Fixes
December 10, 2013
  • Adjusted the camera angle for Krieg while in the gunner seat of the Runner.
  • Wilhelm is no longer invulnerable to the Ahab Rocket launcher.
  • Description for Gaige's Buck Up skill now correctly indicates that Deathtrap will restore 100% of shields.
  • Gaige's Interspersed Outburst no longer prevents critical hits from registering.
  • Krieg's Release the Beast will correctly activate when health is less than 33%.
  • Adjusted the presentation of Relic attributes.
  • Corrected an issue where Tiny Tina's damsels could become invisible.
  • (TK Baha) Removed the inadvertent health regeneration for the Pumpkin King's head when playing on OP1 - OP8.
  • (TK Baha) Skrakks no longer appear deformed while PhysX is enabled -- PC only.

A hot fix is automatically applied at the "Press Start" screen when Borderlands 2 is connected to the internet. In general, hot fixes are used to temporarily address issues between major updates. Hot fixes are not permanent -- they are temporarily stored in memory during the game session and lost upon exiting Borderlands 2.

To ensure that you receive hot fixes, make sure that your system is connected to the internet when Borderlands 2 boots up. A hot fix differs from an update in that an update contains changes that are permanently stored on your system and only needs to be downloaded once.

For more on hot fixes and updates to Borderlands 2, keep an eye on the respective Knowledge Base article for your platform: PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

Inside the Box: Introduction to Cosplay

Hi everyone! My name is Lilith Lindwall and I am a Marketing Assistant here at Gearbox. If you were at Community Day 2013 (an event Gearbox has thrown for the last 3 years where we hang out with our fans and give them a glimpse into the future of the studio) or saw the stream on twitch.tv, you would have seen me all dressed up as Lilith from Borderlands. Why yes, it is confusing having the same name as a video game character. I have answered to the name several times only to hear “No, not you Lilith, Borderlands Lilith.”

Anyway, today I would like to welcome you to the fun and exciting world of cosplay. You may be sitting there asking “what is this cosplay of which you speak?”

This is a question I hear a lot and most of the time, the answer is either vague or only partly describes it... READ MORE
