Poll: which is the best borderlands 2 dlc expansion? (122 votes)

captain scarlett 9%
mister torgue 10%
sir hamerlock 2%
tiny tina 79%

I'm thinking of getting a dlc pack for borderlands 2, but the season pass seems pricey and I'm not sure I'd pay them all. if i was only going to get one, which one should it be?

The season pass for BL2 is DEFINITELY worth it in terms of value for your money - there's a lot of extra content in those 4 DLC's. That being said, if you really only want one, Tiny Tina all the way. It's the most interesting mechanically and thematically and the nerd/geek/gamer in-jokes are literally everywhere. Plus - shotgun that shoots swords! What else could you ask for?

The newest one, easily. Great writing, environments, enemies and bosses. It's a pure joy all the way through. The Mister Torgue DLC is also very good. The Captain Scarlett one is pretty good, too. Big Game Hunt is my least favorite, simply because the story was incredibly short and it was kind of boring, but there is also a chance for good loot. It's probably still worth playing if you have other people to play with.

Overall, the season pass is well worth it. It's definitely not pricey for the amount of content they put out for it. But if you do only get one, get Assault on Dragon Keep.

Whoa...where the hell do you get this? I've played through the thing almost two times. I haven't finished all of the side quests yet, however.

Tiny Tina.

The only in-house DLC I think.

Tiny Tina, hands down. I played through Scarlett and Torgue, and both of them were painfully anticlimactic and generally just not worth the time or effort. The one good thing about either of them is that they give out cool-looking heads for the characters, generally.

Tiny Tina's DLC, on the other hand, is by far both the largest expansion and the one they put the most time and effort into. I'd go as far as to say it's the best part of Borderlands 2 hands down.

It is from a side quest. I won't go into who gives it (spoilers) but if it's called the Swordsplosion. Look it up if you care to know more specifics.

I had the most fun with the Tiny Tina DLC.

I bought the pass, but I've only gotten around to playing Captain Scarlet... Borderlands 2 wasn't nearly as accessible as the first for solo play, and my time spent playing alone in NG+ only pushed me away the game >_>

Tiny Tina. Otherwise I'd probably go with Torgue.

Tina is the best overall, but Torgue is by far the funniest one. Scarlett is decent and Hammerlock is a nice bonus if you got the season pass but is not all that great.

I got the season pass for like $10 in that Steam sale and I think I'll play the Tiny Tina one first.

There season pass is definitely worth it.

Come to think of it BL2 is one of the few games so far that has delivered good value on their season pass offer (aside from maybe BF3).

Also the season pass already went on sale during the summer steam sale, so it's quite likely to go on sale again the next big sale happens.

I liked the Scarlett and Tina dlcs the most. However, the Torgue and Hammerlock dlcs have some essential weapons for UVHM if you're going there. DPUH, Interfacer, and Meteor Shower for just 3.

I say screw it buy the psycho and gage then buy 61 and 72 DLC pack then then the big DLC.

Tiny Tina has the best overall story, but Mr. Torgue is by far the funniest.
