Since Halloween, Gearbox Software and 2K Games have been releasing holiday themed “Headhunter” packs. The next Headhunter pack will tell the story of How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day and will release on December 17th. It will be available via Steam for PC and Mac, the Xbox LIVE Marketplace on the Xbox 360, and the PlayStation Network for PS3. The price is estimated to be $2.99 / £2.39 / 2,99 €.
As a train full of weapons from Marcus goes missing, he asks our lovely Vault Hunters if they will help him retrieve them. Visit the village of Gingerton where the weather isn’t the most frightful, but the snowmen will want to murder you. Once you have taken down the Abominable Mister Tinder Snowflake claim your prize by unlocking the new skin and head customizations for each of the six Vault Hunters.
For the week of July 2nd through July 8th you can grab various pieces of DLC for Gearbox Software’s Borderlands 2 for half-off on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
Included in this sale is the first three add-ons; Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage and, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt. These three packs originally sold for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and are now on sale for 400 Microsoft Points ($5). The newest DLC, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep is not included as part of this sale.
You can also grab the two character packs for 400 Points as well. Get the fifth playable character, Gaige the Mechromancer as well as the newly released Psycho, Krieg for the same price.
For 200 Points you can grab the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack and the Creature Slaughter Dome. The former offers a brand new play through mode which sports a higher chance at better loot and increases the rank cap from 50 to 61. The latter gives a new form to the “Circles of Slaughter” that are within the game; only this time instead of facing Hyperion bots or Bandit thugs, take on the wildlife that roams Pandora.
Yesterday saw the release of the fourth add-on for Borderlands 2. You can pick up Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC / Mac for 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99.

Last week we had reported a handful of hot fixes were being released for Borderlands 2. This week, Gearbox is back at it with four more hot fixes for the game. Hot fixes are applied at the “Press Start” menu of the game if you are connected to the internet; they are not kept permanently on your hard drive and are used to address issues between major updates. These hot fixes are:
- Commando’s Rifleman, Gunner and Shock Trooper class mods now correctly increase kill skill bonuses.
- Increased Shock Spike shield damage by addressing issue where it was not being calculated properly.
- Clients are now able to see explosions caused by Norfleets in multiplayer.
- Thermitage (Sir Hammerlock DLC) is now friendlier and will no longer refuse to come play with some players.
We will keep you informed if any updates are pushed out or if more hot fixes are released.
Today there are some hot fixes going out for Borderlands 2 on the PC, PS3 and 360 systems. These fixes take care of five issues that the community has wanted fixed for quite some time. These fixes are listed below:
- Adjusted Mechromancer’s Sweetheart class mod to correctly increase team health.
- Assassin’s “Slayer of Terramorphous” class mod no longer includes Gunzerker skill bonus.
- Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage : Critical hits against Midgets now register properly.
- Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage : Rat Thief enemies are no longer allowed in Pete’s Bar due to patron concerns regarding excessive theft.
- Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage : Torgue vending machines can now stock up to level 50 legendary weapons.
According to the Gearbox Software website a hot fix is applied at the “Press Start” screen of Borderlands 2 when connected to the internet. They are temporary fixes for issues between major updates and are stored in memory during the game session and are lost once you are done playing the game. Whereas an update is downloaded onto your system and is only needed to be downloaded once.
Last week when 2K Games and Gearbox Software were showing off some gameplay footage of the new DLC, they also confirmed that we would be seeing new skin packs for all of the playable characters in Borderlands 2.
Starting today you can pick up one of three new customization packs each priced individually at 80 Microsoft Points/ $0.99 USD / GBP £0.75 or EUR 0,99 €. Each pack contains one head and one skin customization for its character class based on three themes; these themes being Madness, Domination and Supremacy. Here is a look at the “Madness” pack for that is available for purchase.
These packs are not part of of the Season Pass, there is still one more campaign add-on that is still coming out later in the year. You can pick up these packs off of the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, Steam Marketplace or the Playstation Store. Europe and Oceania regions will be seeing these tomorrow, the 23rd on their marketplace of choice.
