To say that there are a lot of weapons in Borderlands 2 would be a serious understatement. In fact, YouTuber retroinactive calculated that there at least 150,000,000 guns in the game. So what if you wanted to go on a quest to use as many of those weapons as possible? Can You Beat Borderlands 2 By Using Every Weapon You Find?

Can You Beat Borderlands 2 By Using Every Weapon You Find? (in text form)

I did a bit of research into the skills available to the different classes and settled on Axton because one of the earliest skills you can take provides a flat boost to damage across all weapon types, which will be extraordinary useful. With a proper name for my character, I began the game, and woke up on Pandora with a Claptrap effectively robbing my grave. Close to his home, I checked my inventory and found 2 weapons, both of which are useless because after Claptrap got his eye stolen, I got a Pistol from his cabinet.

With that weapon in hand, I can explain a bit about how this run works. The short version is that every time I find a new weapon, I have to use it until I find another weapon. It doesn’t matter if I’m using a Legendary shotgun and a bandit drops a generic white-rarity pistol, it’s a new weapon which means I have to use it. This also applies to shields, class mods, grenade mods, and relics even though I only said “guns” in the title.

I was stuck with the first pistol until I killed Knuckledragger and got a revolver. That revolver didn’t last long because there was a chest in this Hyperion barge that contained a shotgun. Myself, Claptrap, and Claptrap’s eye then entered the Southern Shelf to find someone to stick the eye back in its proper hole. Before entering the town, I took out a few flying creatures to get a nice little chunk of experience, then skipped the gate and began clearing out the the Bandits and Bullymongs from the area. Once they were cleared out, I went back to the gate, I sorta did things out of order as Claptrap hadn’t tried to open the gate yet, so I had to clear out the town again. Not that that was a bad thing, it just meant more experience for me.

Claptrap shocked himself, I met Mister Hammerlock, shocked myself to be like my hero, and sold all my crap at the vending machine. I thought about whether or not I should force myself to buy a weapon from the machine and use it, but I’ll be going through enough guns as it is so I decided against it, Claptrap’s eye got fixed, he called me ugly, and I banana few side quests. I found a new gun to replace my shotgun from one of the Bullymongs, which proved to be quite effective against the mongs in the next area.

With the two side-quests completed, I got a new shield and a new rifle from Hammerlock, and went to find a new shield. Also, real quick, I’m not gonna mention every time I obtain a new weapon. It happens far too frequently, you’d get annoyed from hearing it so often, and saying it so many times would annoy me. The Marauders below the shield station were cleared out in near record time, I only went down once, and went to take on even more maniacs camping out near the infinite electricity.

I skinned a few Bullymongs to give to Hammerlock for his soup, sold my junk at the shield store, and got a sniper rifle from Hammerlock. It’s a shame that I didn’t plan ahead, because that sniper is one level too high for me to use, which means that I’ll never be able to use it. It would be too complicated to keep track of over-leveled weapons and switching to them whenever I level up, so they’re just trash.
