Tie between Zer0 and Wilhelm with CL4P-TP close behind.

Favourite NPC
CL4P-TP especially after the Claptastic Voyage. That bot has been though so much crap and still keeps on going.

Favourite Weapon
Argh hard one… I’ll just go with Shogun 1340 off the top of my head for making me laugh too much.

Favourite Shield
I’ll go with the one that tends to be used quite a bit during playthoughs: Anshin Adaptive. Can never go wrong with one in a pinch!

Favourite Grenade
Quasar hands down.

Bone of the Ancients: Dat cooldown reduction!

Legendary Killer and Celestial Enforcer.

Favourite head

Favourite Manufacturer
Tough one again… may have to go with Tediore because of how wacky those weapons can be.

Favourite Boss
Ancient Dragons of Destruction. I found this fight extremely fun with the right amount of craziness. Also a nod to 5H4D0W-TP and his forms. No one expected him to be THAT tough lol!

Favourite Enemy
You can probably guess xP

Favourite Map
Tough one, but Opportunity pops into my head for how hectic that area can get. Caustic Caverns can get the same way too! But in the end, it goes to Digistruct Peak. One map with many options… of HELL.

Favourite Vehicle
That boat thingy in Captain Scarlet’s DLC because I am the best at parking it!

Favourite Quote / Line of Dialogue
Doc Mercy is a Dick - Tannis. That line make ALL of us burst into giggle fits the first time we heard it on Digistruct Peak.

Dr. Ted for all entries. He guides me, protects me, and shelters me. He stops my enemies in there tracks, and heals my ailments. Ted lays his body down, so that i may tread on the muscle of his body.I am Dr. Ted, but I speak of him as though i am another body.

My favorite Dr. Ted Quote:

“The blood of my body may be spilled upon the stones of the earth, my bones turned to ash and cast upon the sea, and my mind cast in to the darkness of death to wander for eternity, but when you strike against my brethren, we will rise to match your power and slay those who stand against in a crusade that will sweep across the land and cleanse it from even the greatest of evils.”

  • Dr. “Greasy Broccoli” Ted, 2015

Ill answer seriously later, when I’m not on my phone.

Ok, here we go:

  1. Mordecai

  2. Marcus

  3. BL1’s Plague, BL2’s Butcher

  4. Big Boom Blaster, any elemental shield

  14. Opportunity, The Subconscious

  15. Catapult Technical

  16. Ice Cream Day, OH SNAP! It’s Ice Cream Day! Rocky Road, a la mode! Oh I’m in the mood for Ice Cream Day!

Favorite Character: Sal
Not necessarily for the exploits or power, just because the inherent awesomeness of two guns, even without their abilities affecting the other gun.

Favorite NPC: Tiny Tina.
No science needed.

Favorite Weapon: Torrent/Ravager
Torrent has all around good stats (as far as I’m concerned) and EXPLOOOOOOSIONS! and if you have boosted accuracy most of those pellets will hit what you aim at.

Favorite Shield: Rough Rider
That little bug you get in BL2 if you try and avoid so many of the BA rank bonuses that leaves you with only max health? Yeah, play as Krieg, put points in Feed the Meat, get a health relic, equip the Rough Rider. You are now Meat Sponge who has more health than everyone else on the team COMBINED.

Favorite Grenade: Storm Front
I don’t really like the variety of shock weapons and you basically get 5 grenades for the price of 1. That and the area it covers is marvelous.

Class Mod: Hoarder
Need that ammo regen.

Favorite Manufacturer: Tie between Torgue and Jackobs
Gotta have that high initial output.

Favorite Boss: Hyperius
I like that there is a unique way to fight him other than just toss bullets and see what happens but isn’t super difficult. Also, his loot pool drools

Favorite Quote: I’m sure I have a specific one but every other line out of Tina’s mouth usually makes me laugh.

Answer: Yes.

(That’s to all questions on the list)

Favourite Character (ONE from all titles): Timothy, probably the most well-designed synergistic kit in the entire game, Krieg’s was close but Tim’s is just phenomenal.

Favourite NPC: Jack, you just really can’t compete with him

Favourite Weapon (one for each weapon type or just one overall favourite weapon across all titles):
Fibber, don’t even play Gaige, just like this thing cuz of the item card and feeling like a badass for banking shots

Favourite Shield: MORQ, It’s not a good shield but it’s a pretty damn good tribute to one of my favourite comedians of all time (Watch that man’s stand-up it’s amazing)

Favourite Grenade: Longbow Quasar Teleport a Black Hole to target location kthxbai

Favourite Relic: um… umm…Deputy Badge???

Favourite Class Mod / COM (one for each character or one overall): I’m just gonna say Master Blaster from B1, Brick secretly highest DPS character with the Ajax Ogre and that com.

Favourite Action Skill: Expendable Assets again this is a close one between this and Bloodaxe Rampage, but Jack’s kit plays with this Action Skill sooooooo well #synergy

Favourite Skin (one for each character / vehicle or one overall favourite): Salvador had a tuxedo t-shirt, i liek dat one

Favourite head (same as above): Claptarp as the Trash Can

Favourite Manufacturer: Torgue, dat marketing campaign, also it’s a workaround to why i didn’t put Mr. Torgue in NPC

Favourite Boss: Nayakama, dies like he lived, like a bitch

Favourite Enemy: Mops from Tiny Tina, Dat Fantasia Misson dough

Favourite Map: Shock Drop Slaughter Pit, if only you got a repeatable mission. I wuv you and your combat flow

Favourite Character (ONE from all titles): Salvador. Not for the OPness, but for the options and combos he makes possible. Truly a game theorist’s delight :blush:

Favourite Shield: Evolution

Favourite Character: Axton. He’s the first character I picked and I enjoy the simple, solid play style.

Favourite NPC: Marshall Friedman. Yeah.

Favourite Weapon:
Assault Rifle: Sawbar. The fiery explosions are just a joy to look at.
SMG: Fridgia. Ice ice baby.
Shotgun: Flakker. 'nuff said.
Sniper: Pimpernel. Hitting that sweet spot hits my sweet spot.
Handgun: Unkempt Harold. It makes my day.
Rocket Launcher: Kaneda’s Laser, because Tediore somehow accomplished what Mr.Torgue can’t(or won’t).
Laser: Mining Laser. It just feels right.

Favourite Shield: Prismatic Bulwark. Survivability and damage in one package; what’s not to like?

Favourite Grenade: Quasar. Being able to corral enemies and strip shields is so handy.

Favourite Relic: Do Oz kits count?
3DD1.E if they do. If they don’t, then Sheriff’s Badge. Being able to chuck Buzz Axes that much faster is great.

Favourite Class Mod / COM: Axton’s Gunner. I don’t actually use this but it’s amusing to see my turret shoot faster than normal.

Favourite Action Skill: Wolf & Saint. Wolf can get pretty powerful, sometimes he will one-shot things before I can even paint them.

Favourite Skin: Torgue High Octane for Axton, Factory Specs for Wilhelm.

Favourite head: Cyber Scientist. Gentlemen… BEHOLD!

Favourite Manufacturer: Torgue got the boom.

Favourite Boss: Buff Gamer.

Favourite Enemy: Nomads. The things they say will never get old.

Favourite Map: The Dust. Lots of high profile baddies to go after.

Favourite Vehicle: Catapult Technical. Knocking the Cara-Van off a cliff is amusing.

Favourite Quote / Line of Dialogue: “THAT WILL TEACH YOU TO HAVE AN OPINION CONTRARY TO MINE!”

  1. Roland, krieg, athena: roland was my first and hes a beast, krieg perfectly nails being a psycho in my opinion, an athrna is my #1 fav character in borderlands now, cause shes a hard ass, she gets ■■■■ done, and i love all the laughs she makes in game. Oh anf she doesnt take crap from lilith haha

  2. Dr. Zed: hes so uniquely borderlands and hes hilarious

  3. Maggie/ masher revolvers: shotgun pistols. Need i say more?

  4. The rough rider: the irony of a shield that isnt a shield (irony might not be the word im looking for) and it kicks butt to boot

  5. The fastball/ snowball: hitting people across the map is fun, and its just an awesome grenade

  6. Pssh who uses relics :stuck_out_tongue: i only use acrobat oz kits haha

  7. Probably kriegs legendary sickle, if it came down to it

  8. Bloodwing (because 1 second cooldown and hes a lootapalooza)

  9. Cant really say, maybe torgue speed demon

  10. Too many haha. My fav so far in tps though is athena’s holodome head. Cant think of the exact name at the moment

  11. Jakobs, followed by Jakobs, with Jakobs as a close third: because if it took more than one shot, you werent using a jakobs

  12. Sledge i suppose, only cause he drops sledge’s shotgun. Grandma torgue defintely gets an honorable mention though bahaha
    Edit: my brother just reminded me of the best boss ever. Nakayama! Haha

  13. Spideranta circa borderlands 1, buzzards for bl2, bulwarks for tps: spiderants because “brace yourselves, the hordes are coming” buzzards cause im hard pressed to find a more satisfying kill in any game than seeing it blow up and careen out of the sky, hurdling its flaming crew screaming to their demise, and crash into a fiery ball of molten death. Bulwarks cause i like the way they attack and i think its kinda neat they only show up in holodome

  14. Old haven, the dust, pity’s fall: old haven cause crimson lance mobbing, the dust cause… everything, pity’s fall cause i enjoy platforming and mobbing through the drakensburg, and find it to be a very cool setpiece

  15. This probably isnt exactly it but “the little skamp overpaid me. He gave me six thou… five thousand dollars. You dont need to confiscate that do you?” From dr. Zed because i cant hear it and not still be chuckling about it to myself an hour later lol

  16. oh yah, and id probably have to say bl2 runner, cause i love drifting around in that bad boy
