Borderlands official strategy guide

All I can say is “holy crap” do we need a 380 page guide book for Borderlands? I understand its 120 missions but wow… its like studying for my MCSE all over again!  (PS: still looking forward to playing this game when released, just without the manual)

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – October 20, 2009 – BradyGames today releases its Official Strategy Guide for Borderlands™, the highly anticipated game from 2K Games and Gearbox Software. This HUGE guide of over 380 pages covers everything a player needs to make their way through Pandora.

The Borderlands Signature Series Strategy Guide has it all! The main story walkthrough leads players through each of the 120+ missions in the game, along with class-specific strategies, co-op play tactics, and dev team tips! The detailed level maps pinpoint all permanent and quest-related items throughout Pandora. Locate all Treasure Chests, New-U & Catch-A-Ride Stations, and more! The impressive Weapon Systems and Gun Catalog covers nearly 400 of the most robust weapons that can be generated in the game! Plus: full class coverage, in-depth enemy data, Survival Basics, Achievements & Trophies, and much more!

“We enjoyed an unprecedented level of, not just cooperation, but collaboration with the game developers at Gearbox during the creation of the Borderlands guide. This team approach allowed us to provide comprehensive and highly customized content that would have been otherwise impossible, especially on a game this big,” said David Bartley, Senior Development Editor at BradyGames. “From the placement of mission-specific developer tips throughout the book to the breadth of coverage in our ambitious Gun Catalog, which details 400 of the millions of weapons available in the game, the results of this collective effort are evident throughout this 384-page tome.”

The massive Borderlands strategy guide is a must-have for any player taking on Pandora! The game and the guide are available today at retailers nationwide.

  1. Seems a bit large, but I was never a fan of strategy guides to be honest. They’re good for long lists and battle mechanic details, but as for actually playing the game, I’m pretty confident in my own ability to manage that myself.

  2. yeah usually I just play the game as is, sometime you do however need some research or help online to find special items or beat bosses… but seriously a manual this big is just for door stops.
