Challenges are special feats that can be completed for bonus experience points in Borderlands, or Badass Ranks in Borderlands 2. Most challenges involve killing many of the same type of enemy, using weapons to kill enemies, or using Elemental Damage to kill enemies. Other challenges are based around discovering hidden areas, looting enemies, travelling, and vehicles.

Notes

  • The completion of a Challenge will bring up a notice in the top of the screen. In the case of "Orbit Achieved" this can potentially result in all of the levels of this Challenge being displayed as each level completes in sequence.
  • Challenges differ from Achievements in that they reward Experience Points rather than Gamerscore or Trophies.
  • A grand total of 758,500 Experience Points can be gained by completing all of the challenges.
  • Some Challenges are impossible to complete without entering and reentering mission areas many times, and some of them can be very time consuming.
  • Challenges do not give money as a reward.

Trivia

  • The Action Skill challenge "Your Kung Fu is Best" is a line taken from the television series The X-Files. The phrase itself is a play on "My kung fu is best", which was part of a voicemail message left by 'notorious computer hacker' Kevin Mitnick as a taunt for the investigators who were attempting to apprehend him.
  • The Enemy Kill challenge "I am become Death..." references those same words spoken by J. Robert Oppenheimer, the "father of the atomic bomb", when interviewed about his feelings on the weapon he had designed. More specifically, he quoted the Bhagavad Gita, a Hindu scripture from which the line originates.
  • The Shots Fired challenge "Who made that man a gunner?" is a reference to Mel Brooks' spoof of Star Wars, SpaceBalls.
  • The Fire Kill challenge "Hot! Too Hot!" is a reference to Spaceballs when Dark Helmet tries to gulp his coffee.

Location-based challenges

These challenges are tied to specific locations, and have one level (They are either completed or not). Location-specific challenges award varying amounts of Badass Rank. There are at least 64 location-based challenges. These are also called level-specific challenges because they are tied to a certain 'level' (area). Note that the Eridium Blight challenge ‘Save the Turrets' can be missed.
