Overview:

  • Estimated Achievement Difficulty: 6/10
  • Offline: 49 (990)
  • Online: 1 (10)
  • Approximate time to 1000: 35+ Hours
  • Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 (2 Recommended)
  • Number of missable achievements: 0
  • Glitched achievements: Many
  • Do cheat codes disable achievements? No Cheats
  • Does difficulty affect achievements? No
This game is not hard at all the get 100% however it can prove to be very time consuming even though its so fun

Introduction:

Borderlands is a sci-fi FPS with RPG elemets, it is basically Fallout 3 with co-op. The game features literally over a million different guns (Thank god theres no achievement for that huh). You are set in the distant future in a world known as Pandora. The secrets of Pandora are said to be hidden in a Vault (Fallout 3 reference much ?) and you general goal is to make it to the goal and learn its secrets before anyone of negative intentions does first.

Know Your Missables:


Achievements:
Many of achievements are glitched and cannot be achieved in co-op by most players. Achievements that correspond with a certain challenge cannot be achieved again with the same character if the challenge mark as already been met
Example: You sold over 150 weapons already yet you still dont have the "Fence" achievement. The Fence achievement corresponded with one of the challenges and is already done and so you can no longer do it
So for these achievements, when your at the borderline to completing the challenge that corresponds to it, leave your co-op game and complete the quest in single player. The following achievements fall under this:

  • Get A Little Blood on the Tires
  • Pandora-dog Millionaire
  • Fence
  • Facemelter
  • 1.21 Gigawatts
  • Pyro
  • Master Exploder
  • 12 Days of Pandora
Quest:
There have been some cases when you rejoin your co-op partners game one day you come back to see you have some quest eligible ? Well the solution to that are listed below:
For Quest Not Submitted by complete: If you have a quest already completed and it says ineligible however neither you or your partner submitted it yet, simply have both you and your partner submit it in single player
For Quest Already Complete: The person who has this marked as ineligible must go into single player and turn in the quest himself until he has the same quest marked as his co-op partner again.

Also make sure the partner to the Host leaves first by Exiting from the Pause Menu before the Host ends the session.

Step#1: Playthrough 1 (Co-op)

During this playthrough you will be playing with a co-op partner, primarily to earn your duel achievements and defeating the bosses in co-op as well as any misc achievements. If none if you know anyone with the Gearbox achievement, simply ask different users to join your game (like me) for it. Also use this playthrough to complete all the Quest in Frystone and Rust Commons as well as obtain 42 Inventory space by finding all the claptraps. You can do every co-op achievement in split screen as well. Upon finishing the game you should be around level 36

Reminder: When your about to complete a quest that corresponds with an achievement, quit out to single player and complete it there

Step#2: Playthrough 2

If you did things correctly you should only have 2 achievements level, which is basically level 40 and 50. In Playthrough 2 everything is ALOT stronger than they once were, quests give more experience and money and stronger weapons are dropped. Complete every quest possible, dont worry about missing any, until you reach level 50. You should be able to reach level 50 a little before old haven.

Conclusion:


Borderlands isnt hard , just time consuming , you may find yourself burned out after reaching level 50. Overall , a very good game.
