Like most of you, ive spent a lot of time in the first borderands game. Ive played through the storyline multiple times, and ive been pretty sure i know all there is to borderlands when it comes to dialouge. Im sure you all know what it feels like to even be bored of listening to the same lines, especially if youve done multiple playthroughs in quick succession.
But what if i told you that youve been missing something?
So maybe a few years back, i decided to do the scavenger sniper rifle mission after i already killed the roid rage psycho, and went back to firestone. When i went back inside the arid hills, and went to the area, a piece of dialouge from comandant steel played. It seemed to only trigger after that main quest was turned in, but im pretty sure it was intended to play after walking back from killing the roid rage psycho.
Fast forward to a few months ago. I just killed the destroyer, and wanted to farm the eridians right outside for experience. So i saved and exited, came back in, and went to the eridian promontory. Dialouge from tannis played, the last piece you are likely to get in the game besides DLC, and claptrap telling you about quests.
So today i was playing on my melee mordecai, and noticed my whacks didnt do ■■■■ to krom. The entire time i was hitting him, lethal strike never proc’d once. I decided to go outside to the turrets you fight to get int krom’s canyon so i could test if all turrets are immune to lethal strike, or just the ones you can get into. I went outside to see that they dont respawn, but i also got some awesome crazy earl dialouge! I decided to test a theory, and drove back to tannis instead of fast traveling. Success, i got some tannis dialouge ive never heard before!
So my point is this. The game has extra dialouge checks scattered throughout. They relate to the main story mission, and you only hit them if you dont fast travel.
This might not be a secret to most, but i figure there are some people out there like me who always use fast travel, and have missed multiple chunks of dialouge, like me.
So this thread is deticated to those pieces of dialouge. I guess start a playthrough where you never use fast travel, and lets see what we find out. I already have four in here. I bet we can find more that we might not have ever heard, or have forgotten all about. I wanna see how to get them below. Also feel free to share things you feel not a lot of people know about the game. I feel the way the boss fight with krom is set up, some people might never hear him. He has an amazing voice, btw. You can just sit a little below him on his ramp so his gun’s barrel is aiming at the floor, and take a listen.
