But I wasn't gonna get the character DLC's yet at any rate - I wouldn't have the time to play them for any length of time, so I'm just looking for extra storyline and content really at the moment.
And yeh, Torgue weapons are awesome - I recently just picked up an explosive relic, so that's gonna be damn useful if I grab any explosive legendaries.
Best thing about BL series is you can go at your own pace.
I am currently hunting for a good explosive relic.
And I thought I would post this up for anyone that is either interested in the game or new to it that might have questions about the challenges.
There are challenges in the game that allow you to earn badass rank. Badass ranks allow you to add cumulative percentages to your base stats. You earn badass ranks by completing challenges. Most of the challenges have tiers which I will show you in a sec. They never wear off or reset, they are persistent but not consistent. Meaning that if you take one character say a Commando and spend Badass tokens on giving him +11.5% health every character you have or create will have that +11.5% health bonus. Though you will have to complete the challenges with other characters that you have already completed with that commando character.
Commando +11.5% health bonus. Notice the completed challenges. The first challenge "Boroking Around" is complete in all tier levels. You also earn different amounts for different tiers.
And the tiers for one of them.
Now notice my new Gaige character while she has the +11.5% health bonus she has yet to complete the challenges for example the "Boroking Around" challenge is incomplete on all tiers. When you complete her challenges (thus earning more Badass ranks) you could add them to her health to raise her stats which would also raise your other characters stats in health as well.
And the tiers for the new character are empty.
Here is a link to the challenges in the main game and the DLC for both BL1 and BL2
minus the new Tiny Tina DLC (but I am sure this will be up within a few weeks.) I think I counted over 160 challenges.
Also there are Achievements as well.
I also found out today that when you create a new character it will give you the option to skip missions you have previously completed in another play through. It did this for me in the beginning but I only went as far as creating the character and have not moved into a new area in order to find out if it does this for each individual area of the game.
