Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Achievements

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Experience all 9 Game Modes and all 9 Modifiers of the Mutator.  

See "It's Raining Cats and Hotdogs" for how to access these missions.

The nine game modes are actually game modes as much as they are just circumstances that affect the actual Game Mode which is just a three-wave defence mission. They do spice it up a bit but this achievement is basically to complete the three-wave defence mission nine times with nine different circumstances. The Mutators give you character traits, such as more damage with certain weapons/attacks, etc. They are as follows;

  • Game Modes:
    • Half Gravity
    • Operation Vacu-Suck
    • Mag Density
    • Hyperspeed
    • Flow
    • Shoes Made of Acid
    • Vampires
    • Bloody Good
    • Glass Turtles
  • Mutators:
    • Butt Slayers
    • Rocket Arena
    • CQB
    • Rangefinder
    • Lasershow
    • Spray 'n' Pray
    • Critipistols

After completing the first mission for the achievement 'It's Raining Cats and Hotdogs' you will gain free access to choose whichever Game Modes and Mutators you wish. I would suggest just starting from the beginning, choose the first of each, complete the mission, turn it in, then choose the second of each, complete that mission and so on, until you've done them all. You can also select the difficulty so be sure to set it to the easiest for to make this as smooth as possible. You do need to complete the mission, even though the achievement only suggests to 'Experience' them, as failing will not count towards Experiencing it. The first mission that you do for the achievement 'It's Raining Cats and Hotdogs' will count as one of the nine that you need to complete, so be sure to remember which Game Mode and Mutator you chose to avoid having to repeat it.

Complete all nine of each and the achievement is yours.

Is anyone willing to co-op this with me. I really hate these stupid wave based game modes and would rather play them with someone. (Preferably with a headset) if so let me know. GT: grilld cheez002

I'm looking for one or more players that want to get or help me do The Gift that Keeps on Giving achievement in the Claptastic Voyage DLC. This is my last achievement to 100% the game and all DLCs,

I'm also not a fan of wave-based things like this and would like to do it with others. If you are up for this my gamertag is baazfury. I'm on every night aroung 8:00 p.m. MDT, USA, UTC -6:00.

I am playing a level 50 Nisha character. I have a headset with a mic.

Even though I went through this DLC on Normal Vault Hunter mode, this arena appears to scale to your level or goes to 50. When I did the DLC on normal, enemies were level 38, but this quest is at level 50, like Terramorphus in BL2 after the main storyline is finished. I'm at level 50, so I don't know if it scales to highest p
