Well then, time to go full berserk and get those specific ones out:
Pendles kill 20 while Miasma
Ghalt get first blood
Toby get a double Kill with Core Discharge
Thorn kill 10 BB with volley while mid-air
Kelvin stun 3 BB 10 times
Benedict kill 10 BB while Mid-Air
Galilea+Alani assist in killing Ambra 5 Times
If thats done I got platin and all trophies, at least till the new recruits drop in.
Oh the PVP lore can be challenging. The one for Kelvin was actually surprisingly easy. And Thorns Volley too, I expected that one to be a real pain but I just saved my volley to kill steal EVERYTHING. ;p
You could get help of friends for some of them of course, like Ghalts first blood. (Me and 3 other guys helped a buddy of us to do it. 10 times! ;p)
The most efficient way to get them done is to join the Unofficial Battleborn Discord server then create a lobby for lore challenge farming and post the link in the matchmaking channel for your platform. If you are on PC I have few Battleborn remaining myself so we can help each other.

Since the latest balance changes, I’ve seen more Ambras.
I actually got Alani’s Ambra kill lore done in the very first PvP match I played with her.
So, Galilea and Alani are probably the easiest on this list, as these challenges aren’t that specific.
Simply download/install discord to your PC/laptop or run it directly from a browser. Once you are in discord and have been given the appropriate permissions post your screen name to the #matchmaking-ps4 channel saying you are starting up a lore lobby and invite those interested to send you friend requests. You’ll need 10 people total. Separate into two groups of 5 pre-mades, then join a low traffic queue such as Capture. Match making will automatically pit the two teams against each other because y’all are in 5 person group and are likely the only 5 person teams there. Don’t cap any nodes so that y’all have max time in the match then farm farm farm.
Be sure to pick/jump into one of the voice channels so that the 10 person group can communicate. The voice channels are below the text channels in discord.
You didn’t mention the worst one, and the only one I have left…
I’m down for Gearbox humor, and I’m down for random stuff, but I really dislike the tentacle r… err, tentacle slap challenge. It discourages good performance / team dynamics, it’s super-long (50 - really?), and it doesn’t have any point that I can see. Most other lore challenges serve to introduce you to the character, their playstyle, and/or their lore. The similar Whiskey Foxtrot “Shank” challenge points you to the fact that, in a pinch, it’s very appropriate to off-hand melee as WF due to his firing speed and style, and that his off-hand is actually quite good - maybe among the best. Perhaps you wouldn’t know that without the lore, or get in the habit of using it if it you weren’t prompted to do so a gagillion times.
And then back to the tentacle-slap. Lore value? Character mechanic teaching value? Skill / teamwork value? All I see is a triple-whammy of facepalm-enducing rage. And it if it is just for the humor of it, I gotta wonder why there isn’t a similar challenge with Montana, whose off-hand melee is actually Gearbox-style clever.
But, of course, that’s my opinion Other than all of those things, it’s my favorite!! And I can’t wait to wreck another few games to complete it! Yay!
