Question: Do I Need Borderlands 1 To Play 2?

Why is borderlands not in the handsome collection?

It’s almost like there was a reason they didn’t include the first and named it accordingly.

Lorewise, because it’s called the handsome collection and handsome Jack is not in 1.

Technically, it’s because they didn’t want to port the borderlands 1 engine.

Meanwhile 2 and presequel ran on the same engine..

Is it worth playing Borderlands 1?

The first is also A LOT easier solo than the second. I remember struggling my first playthrough of BL2 solo because of how much more difficult it was, while in BL1 I would almost never die. It is definitely worth a play-through. … If you liked Borderlands 2, definitely pick up the first one just for the story.

Are Borderlands 1 and 2 connected?

If you’re insisting on playing the past Borderlands games anyways, then you can play the first game through Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. … Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel are both included in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.

Should I play Borderlands pre sequel before 2?

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel mostly takes place in-between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, but you should play Borderlands 2 before diving into The Pre-Sequel. … Because of this, we recommend you play Borderlands 2 before Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Can I skip Borderlands 1?

The interface in Borderlands 1 is kind of lame. Other than some of the characters just being cooler to play as I would say skipping 1 is fine and the story isn’t really worth talking about (in either game really). I’d actually recommend you skip 1 over 2.

What order should I play Borderlands DLC?

From a plot standpoint: General Knox after beating the game, Claptrap last, Zombie wheneve. If you only plan to beat the main game once and want to be overleveled for as little as possible: beat the main game, then do Knox, then start a second play through and do Zombies as soon as it lets you, then do Claptrap.

What order should I play Borderlands the handsome collection?

By release date is the correct order. TPS takes place before BL2, but it’s a story told by Athena after the BL2. So it’s BL1 and DLC, BL2 + four DLC and HH, TPS + DLC, Tales from BL, Fight for Sanctuary. You can also split TftB, iirc first three episodes before TPS, and two last after.

Does Borderlands handsome collection have all DLC?

The Handsome Collection includes every piece of downloadable content for both games, from postgame story missions to character-customization skins. You can also play cooperatively with four players on the very same screen (previously, only two players could do this).

Is the original Borderlands worth playing?

Yes. I would personally say that it’s better than at least BL2 in most respects (this is despite me playing BL2 first). It’s a different experience than the 2nd one but it’s still worth a play through. Just don’t expect it to have the same feel.

Does it matter what order you play Borderlands?

You should play them in the order they were released. Even though the Pre-Sequel shows a story that takes place between the two games it hinges on your knowledge of the second game. Play the first Borderlands, and then the DLC – some of that is really great. … So yes, play them in order of their release.

Do I need to play Borderlands 1 before the handsome collection?

Yes. If you play the first one, you’ll come to love the rest even more, tho I understand the feeling of being burnt out, so don’t try to go max level in any of them till your sure you want too. Also the only dlc really needed from BL1 is the Armory (if you have it). … Pre Sequels dlc is mostly characters and an arena.
