Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock DLC screens and details leak

Monday, 17th December 2012 13:16 GMT By Dave Cook

Borderlands 2 is receiving a new DLC expansion soon, the colourfully-titled Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt. Through the process of internet sleuthing, multiple sources have unearthed screens for the expansions, and details of a new continent called Aegrus. Get the details below.

MP1st and Examiner posted the screens, which show off new weapons and some of the 30 new character customisation items that make up the Domination, Supremacy and Madness character packs.

Reddit user MikeTheInfidel unearthed a blurb for the DLC which reads, “Danger! Excitement! Mustaches! It’s time for another episode of Vault Hunter Adventures, featuring Sir Hammerlock! In this week’s tale, our hard-boiled heroes travel to the savage continent of Aegrus! Their goal? To uncover the most exotic creatures Pandora has to offer, and give ‘em the old one-two!”

Other details include:

  • One new head and one new skin for each class
  • A new vehicle – the fanboat (summoned from a Catch-A-Boat station), with 68 of its own skins and corrosive, incendiary, and shock weapon mods
  • Currently 12 side missions and 5 longer main story missions
  • A new raid boss (“Imagine, if you will, a Stalker the size of a small building. Now imagine yourself killing it.”)
  • More new Seraph items
  • New kinds of enemies, like the borok and the scaylion
  • Lots of monster-tracking side missions assigned by Sir Hammerlock
  • A new swamp/jungle continent named Aegrus
  • A self-important but not-so-well-known new enemy who is “super-pumped we’re archenemies now”, and who leads a tribe of jungle savages and has an evil plan that might actually work
  • A new treasure room brimming with goodies… but with a time limit

What do you think of Borderlands 2 DLC so far? Let us know below, and check out the screens here:

Thanks OXM.

    isn’t it a bit funny ?!, every DLC for Borderland 2 gets leaked before official announcement :D, it feels like this is done on purpose.

    Your right this gen leaked means passed on by the PR people via an anonymous email address/poster/commenter.

    It’s really sad.

    Does anyone else agree with me that Zero’s heads are the shittiest designed heads? Seriously.

    Seriously the Gunzerker has the best heads. By far.

    The pirate dlc gets Salvador a rendered skull complete with color-changing glowing eyes, hair, and a captains hat. Zero? His original helmet with a skull “painted” on it and bandana…lame. Either the one guy designing all the heads doesn’t like Zero or the one guy in charge of Zero’s heads sucks. The latest head I unlocked for him was a motocross!? And its not even a decent looking motocross helmet. Those goes my rant for the month.

    Hi everyone. No… I definitely don’t work for Gearbox or 2K or Sony or anyone else related to the game. I’m just a massive Borderlands 1/2 fan. When I saw that people were talking about a new upcoming DLC, and that an update had just been released, I knew that some info had to be buried in my PS3… so I went digging. I’m really looking forward to this one, which looks like a nice big new chunk of stuff :)
