The Great Borderlands 2 DLC Contest!

I have 15 STEAM DLC codes to give away from Aspyr, 5 for the Mechomancer, 5 for Pirate Booty, and 5 for Mr. Torgue's Campaign of carnage.

To win one of these codes, post a screenshot of your favorite loot or character, and say why!

You may request a specific DLC code if you already own one of the packs. If not it will be randomized. Please note only one DLC code will be given per person.

I will tally things up and give them out in the next few days or the week as needed.

Thanks to Aspyr for all these great DLC codes!

This gun has saved my ass way too many times to count.

After all my other ammo has been expended and there's nowhere left to run, equip this bad boy, hold down the trigger, and pray. I've got bigger badder weapons, but the infinite ammo/no ammo requirement on this one makes it worth the inventory space as a backup when everything else is out.

Looking for a Torgue code, I already own the other two.

EDIT: Please remove me from the contest. I landed up buying Torgue's Campaign, which means I have everything BL2 related. Thanks.

I'm going to go with the Large Bunny. Why? Because in an epic clash with Hyperius the Invincible, I was incapped and [] close to dying, but because the this gun gets tossed and explodes like a grenade on reloading, we both died simultaneously and I managed to get all the loot for beating him after respawning.

As for DLC preference, I'd go for Torgue's Campaign of Carnage!

My favorite character so far is the assassin. My main reason is for the deception skill. Go running into some serious business, throw deception, and run like hell. The sniping skills are also really nice!

edit: I don't own any of the DLC packs, so any will be marvelous!

Firstly thanks for the offer. Secondly if chosen I don't mind which as I don't have any of the DLC packs yet, I was looking at the Mechromancer as the next one, but any would be great!

I'll submit two as I'm new to the game I don't have a great selection of weapons yet (level 22 presently).

Thumb resize.

I like playing Axton (or George as I call him, think George of the Jungle ) due to the support I can get with the turret when cleaning up the support crew for the bosses. It really helps and allows me to concentrate on critical hits.

Thumb resize.

I tend to favour the sniper rifles a bit as I like ranged combat (I also have one with +180% critical hit damage that is great for Constructors when their shields are down), but for mop up work I do like Miss Moxxi's Bad Touch, I just wish the magazine cap was a little larger and dealt a little more initial damage

So far my fave character is Gaige. The interesting and often odd skilltree, as well as the great comments are off-the-wall kinda' fun. The DT skill has come in handy as well.

I have the Season Pass as well as (obviously) the Mechromancer DLC, but a code for Mechromancer would be a nice surprise for my step-daughter, who is a lot like Gaige in some ways.

Nice move on Aspyr's part to offer these up.

Those looking for other Mac vault-hunters to play co-op with, should join the *new* BL2/Mac group on Steam (558 members so far):

Have to say it's Axton, commando class. The sentry gun is like a second man for those times when none of your friends are online to play. On top of that, when they are on to play, it's like a 3rd/4th/5th man!

I can't say how many times I've almost died but then launched the sentry, hid behind some rocks, and let my health and armour regenerate while the sentry did all the work for me.


Looking for any/all of the DLC codes. I could only afford the game itself while it was on sale on Steam over the holidays. Thanks!

Thanks for the tip! I'm part of another group that has around 200 members so far, but over 500 is definitely nice.

It may be cliché, but my favorite character is Handsome Jack. Despite being the main antagonist, he's your constant companion throughout the game.

I have never enjoyed being berated and taunted by an NPC more in my life. Also, he has a Diamond Pony

Thank you for your consideration!

Edit: If I am selected, I already own the Mechromancer Pack. Anything else is fair game!

Super loot! I Love this game!

I must say I was getting quite bored of farming, I mean ya when you first start doing it and find awesome items when you fought so hard to get it is an amazing feeling, however when you do it enough the same items pop out of enemies and it just gets redundant after a while. Well I joined a raiding party and the host said he wanted to spice things up. We were going on an epic long raid for those who don't have DLC's making it more fun for us. He stated that if we fought through The Warrior 4 times, killed Terramorphis 4 times, and killed 4 Vermivorous' that we would receive an epic loot at the end. This was VERY difficult and we played for probably 4 to 6 hours straight, but it was SOO fun and my goodness was it worth it! Brought that feeling back and also many other aspects of this game which makes it one of my favorites, honestly received most of my weapons from this raid!

I'm in need of a Mechomancer code.

The Guardian Angel



I think a lot of people tend to forget about her, but my favorite character would have to be Angel. She's your companion for a good portion of the game, and her background makes you want to feel sorry for her. Her last actions to help you fight Jack and to atone for what she's done really made me feel that I had another, more personal reason to defeat Jack. This sounds really vague, I know, but I'm trying not to put up spoilers just in case there's someone here who hasn't gone through the game yet. Oh, another reason why I like her is because she's a Siren, and Sirens are awesome.

If I do get a code (hopefully) I would be grateful to accept whichever code I get, since I don't own any. However, I am quite curious to try out playing as the Mechromancer.

I can't help but love my Assassin. Nothing better than an hour or two late at night tucked up tightly behind my sniper rifle.

By far, Zer0 has got to be my favorite character. Although, he is the only character I have played, so there may be a little bias towards him . But what's there not to like about him? He's basically some kind of cyborg-ninja-assassin who can deal huge amounts of damage with a sniper rifle from a distance or get up close and personal with his sword or a shotgun, all the while being invisible. Although I haven't tried it yet, his Cunning skill tree looks really interesting to play, especially when I've seen videos of people playing as him absolutely tearing things up with the Death Blossom skill. Plus, he speaks in freaking haiku.

If I do get a code, I'd like it to be Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, since I already have the Mechromancer Pack and Pirate Booty.

This is my Zer0, looking all awesome in his purple gear

I'm lev 35, only a bit through the 2nd playthrough. On the first go-round, my favorite was this Scout, a caustic Dahl.

Now that all the old guns are useless in True Vault Hunter mode, this burning pistol is good, reminds me of the Maliwan Firehawk from the first game.

Haven't found any crazy good guns yet, still looking...
