Borderlands 2, my favorite video game ever, has a lot of things to do. So, I'll be helping you get through some of the tougher parts of the game, do funny things, do anything and everything Borderlands 2 has to offer.

First, some things I'm going to say to clear up any biases that may occur, for whatever reason, so that you don't think that it's the only way to do something.

My favorite character to play as is Kreig.
My favorite weapon is the PRAZMA CANON.
My favorite raid boss is Voracidous.
My favorite DLC is Hammerlock's Hunt.
My least favorite DLC is Dragon Keep.
My least favorite raid boss is Hyperius (Why is he a thing?)

So now that you understand where some of the things that I'll say come from.

Guides / Tutorials

Spoiler:
How To: Obtain a PRAZMA CANON
Spoiler:

Weapon overlook



Description
The PRAZMA CANON is your own personal carpet bombing tool. It fires 3 glowing purple orb projectiles that fly for a certain distance, causing more purple orbs to rain from the first 3, for as long as the original 3 orbs are flying. The orbs that fall are weaker, and have very little explosion radius, and have no elemental damage.

Stats
Rarity: E-Tech
Manufacturer: Bandit
Model: PRAZMA CANON
Element: Shock, Incendiary, Corrosive, Slag

How to get one
Anytime you have spare golden keys, open the chest in Sanctuary. It can hold E-Techs. If you have no golden keys, then go to the treasure room in the first DLC, and farm it for it. If that doesn't work, go to any place where you seem to get lot's of E-Techs, and farm that area.
If all else fails, and you really want one, you can cheat one in. I won't tell you the code, because I don't support cheating.

Practical Use
None. This thing is useless. Completely useless. Unless you wan't to crash a game, or make one lag really bad. In combat, this thing will get you put into FFYL more than it will kill enemies.

Best Variant
Bullets Go Fasterfied. This will cause the projectiles to fly for a longer time. More air time means more bombs. More bombs means more fun.



Discover every area
Spoiler:

This achievement/trophy (World Traveler) is really complicated.
I did it like this:
I went through everything and cleared it all out. I ran up every ladder, down every flight of stairs, through every door, and jumped down every cliff. This left me with just a few areas that where seemingly impossible to get to. So, I did every side quest (Took WAYYY to long.), but this got me both of those achievements. It's also the only way get World Traveler.



Level EXTREMELY fast
Spoiler:

If you don't have Torgue DLC, this won't work.

Go to Bar Room Brawl, and do the tier 3 rematch. Over and over and over. It takes a long time, but it is a very fast way, and it is working as intended.



Fire faster than fast is fast
Spoiler:
Use Axton.

Skills

Skill Points: Effect

Ready 5: +40% Reload Speed.
Impact 5: +20% Gun Damage and +15% Melee Damage.
Overload 5: +50% Magazine Size for Assault Rifles.
Metal Storm 5: Kill Skill. Killing an enemy gives +60% Fire Rate and +75% Recoil Reduction for a short time.
Battlefront 5: +30% Gun, Melee, and Grenade damage while turret is deployed.
Duty Calls 5: +25% Gun Damage and +15% Fire Rate with non-elemental guns.
Ranger 5: +5% Gun Damage, Accuracy, Critical Hit Damage, Fire Rate, Magazine Size, Reload Speed, and Maximum Health.
Healthy 5: +30% Maximum Health.
Pressure 5: Up to +70% Reload Speed and --60% Shield Recharge Delay depending on how low your health is.


Class Mod
Gunner that gives +6 Metal Storm

Relic
Shadow of the Seraphs, or any Relic that increases fire rate.

Weapon
Shredifier.

Method
Go out, and find a strong enemy that will spawn or has a lot of smaller enemies around it to kill. Things like raid bosses usually work really well. You could also just run through Hero's Pass.

So, you wan't to get your fire rate up as high as possible. The Shredifier is the fastest firing weapon in game.

Go wherever you are going to go to do this, and kill something. Keep killing things to maintain this speed. All of the buffs you have going for you are crazy. The Shredifier will fire away at at least 18 or 19, when the max is supposed to be 15. Hopefully you'll find a way to get a lot of ammo really fast. You'll it do this.

Happy now? I helped you break the game.



Merge Weapons
Spoiler:
As far as I know, this isn't patched.

Merging weapons is kind of weird. It has special rules that you have to follow, and if you break those rules, you have to do it again.

Merging weapons will mix them together, making the target weapon have the effect of the merging weapon, and it's original effect.

This is useful if you want to take out raids while healing and dealing a lot of damage at the same time.

Step 1
Get two guns you want to merge. Pick the prettier gun, or whichever gun you like best to be the gun that will have the other merged into it.

Step 2
Hold out the gun that you'll be merging into the other.

Step 3
Swap weapons, but right as you do open the inventory screen.

Step 4
Swap the place of the guns you want to merge.
For example, if I wanted to merge a grog and DPUH, I would hold out the grog, and then swap weapons, and switch the spot in the inventory that has my grog in it, and replace it with the DPUH.
When you exit your inventory screen, if you come back out with the original weapon in your hand (In my case, the grog), you did it wrong. If you come back with the gun that you swapped with in your hand, you did it right.

If you leave the area, swap weapons, save & quit, or pick up a new gun when it will replace the in-hand gun, it will take away the merged effects.

This will only give the special effect of the weapon. For example, the grog makes your gun heal you. The Norfleeet gives you more damage, Jakobs weapons give you crit. damage, etc. etc.

You can merge multiple weapons into the same gun. You could merge a Grog, Harold, Norfleet, Badaboom, PRAZMA CANON, Rubi, Sand Hawk (Actually gives you no effect, but ya know, whatever.), Interfacer, Hawk Eye, Trespasser, Ogre, Shredifier, Bane, and Nukem all in one, and basically make a god gun. I wouldn't recommend merging more than 3 together, because when I go over that, I sometimes experience instability, and guns breaking.



Beehawking and Shamfleeting
Spoiler:

Beehawking
Beehawking is using a Sand Hawk, and Bee shield to deal massive amounts of damage. This works because the Sand Hawk does not have a multiplier, so every projectile gets damage bonus from the Bee. This is one of the fastest ways to deal damage.

Shamfleeting
This is fun.
Shamfleeting is using a Norfleet (Most launchers will work as alternatives), and a Sham to deal lots of damage with launchers, but also never run out of ammo. The Sham absorbs the launcher shots, and turns them back into ammo. When using a Norfleet, Bar Room Brawl can be cleared easily.
Salvador can take great advantage of this with his Gunzerking ability. Two 'Fleets is better than one, right? Only problem with doing this, is that the damage and projectile output can get to much for the Sham to handle, and it will basically seem as if your Sham is broken and not working.


How To: Break the game, in the best ways possible.
Spoiler:

Method 1
Get 4 people, including you.
All Gunzerkers
All have 2 Bullet Go Fasterfied PRAZMA CANONs
Have them all Gunzerk
Fire away into the sky.
Game = Broke

Method 2
Go to any place that is very high, or has a very high survivable fall and has access to vehicles.
Get someone to crouch on the edge of the ledge, and look up at about a 70 degree angle
Get someone else to get right in-front of a vehicle, don't crouch. and face the person at the edge of the ledge.
Have the driver of the vehicle put on The Afterburner
Have a fourth person trail behind the vehicle to throw grenades (Bonus Package would work great! Maybe.)
Have the driver go full force forward, boost and all.
Right before the person at the edge of the ledge and the person at the front vehicle collide, make the person on grenade duty throw as many as possible.
If timed correctly, the grenades will explode right as they collide, if this happens, you have broken the game.

I'm not entirely sure if this works. My friends and I did it once, and the vehicle went flying. VERY far. Sort of like Vehicle Volleyball in BL1, except farther. We did in The Highlands, off a bridge. We ended up dying out-of-bounds. We did it by accident, too. We were just dicking around, and well, that's what happened.


THOU WHO DOTH JOUST WITH I, SHALL MEET THINE MAKER!
Spoiler:

Don't worry about it.

So, today, I'll be teaching you how to have jousting wars.

You need two vehicles, and a relatively flat area.
I recommend the Bandit Technical, because people can get in the back.

You'll have two teams, two people on each.

On person will drive, and the other will have a sniper in the back.
The snipers need to be in a duel.
The vehicles drive at each other, but not so that they'll collide, like Jousting.
The snipers will shoot at each other, and which ever one dies first loses!
Jousting, the Borderlands 2 way!

Have any requests for tutorials or guides? I most likely know how to do it. I have done all of the things that exist, in BL2.



News
Spoiler:

March 2014
Spoiler:

Verm patch
Spoiler:

Verm has been patched! How you ask? Well, he now has a 100% chance to drop a legendary. Out of that 100%, 30% of that is a Norfleet. So, if you get him to spawn, your time (Most likely) won't have been wasted!

I really love your guide. And thanks for the help on the World Traveler achievement, I was wondering how to get that one while I thought I had everything explored haha!

I also have a question: You say that the PRAZMA CANON will get you into FFYL really fast, but there is this thing called Shamfleeting (which you use the Sham shield with an Norfleet RPG for infinite ammo and barely taking damage from the Norfleet). Does the Sham also work properly with this weapon? I'm quite curious about this because I may want to test it!

Nonetheless a great guide! :3

Yeah, Shamfleeting works with it. Problem with that is, so many fall from it, that a sham needs about 97% absorption, not to go into FFYL, esp. if on OP8.
