Game Hints

Quick reloads

During a reload, click the Right Analog-stick to melee as soon as the cartridge is removed or new rounds are being inserted . The gun will complete reloading instantly.

glamorousglh, Oct 29, 2009

Extra item space

Create a new "bank" character for use in Co-op mode. When you want to store an item, start a Co-op game with your main character and the "bank" character. Transfer the items to be stored to the "bank" character until you need them, then transfer them back.

Easy shooting rounds challenges

Get into a vehicle spawned with a machine gun and not the rocket launcher. Using a rubber band, get LT + RT held. Note: Make sure the controllers are connected to the port and not in wireless mode as this will take some time. All the game to idle for about 24 hours.

Critical hits

To score a critical hit on a human, shoot it in the head. With a sniper rifle this usually kills instantly For a Skag, shoot it in the face when its mouth is open. This varies depending on the type. For the pups, shoot them while they roar at you. For adults, quickly shoot them while they jump at you. For the spitters, shoot their mouths while they fire their poison projectile at you. Critical hits are easiest at close range with a shotgun or scattergun.

Hidden house with Rider gun

When you obtain (do not complete) the quest "Another Piece Of The Puzzle", you can go to a house in New Haven. A door opens up leading to random loot, level 30 Raider Mutants, and always one of the weapons is a gun named "Rider". Its stats usually vary slightly each time you get one. The weapon is only located in this house. The weapon's "manufacturer" is "Gearbox" (the game's developer), as opposed to an in-game company such as Dahl, Hyperion, etc. Note: When this location is used with the others in New Haven for the "Unlimited guns and money" trick, it really pays off.

Game Glitches

Duplicate items

Start a Co-op mode game. After finding a desired item, drop it on the ground then exit the game without saving it. Have your Co-op partner take the item. Resume the game and you will still see that item on the ground and can collect it. Your Co-op partner can then give you the duplicate item that was previously picked up. This can be repeated as many times as desired.

Spawn 4 vehicles

When you and a friend are at a vehicle spawn station, both of you spawn a vehicle at the same time. This will spawn two vehicles (one on top of the other). Press right bumper at the station and repeat the process.

Getting out of bounds

In the Dahl Headlands, where you have to power on the Fast Travel Network, go to the place that houses the main breaker. Before entering the "fort" there is a vehicle station to the left. Walk past the Vehicle station and hop up onto the obstacles and then onto the first grey container. Turn right and hop onto the container across the gap. Then jump up onto the fence and walk to the end of it where it meets the rock wall. When you get there, crouch, and while crouching walk off of the fence into the wall on the right. You should fall through the wall and onto the tessellated (square-ish) platform/ledge that the game programmers left alone because they didn't expect you to get out. Upon completion of these steps, you can see a void of blackness. If you want, you can jump off into the void. If you do, you will fall for about 30 seconds before respawning. You will not have to pay to respawn. Or if you feel like going back because you're scared of heights then you can just walk back through the wall.
