* RecurringRiff: There is a distinct bass guitar riff that plays whenever [[BigBad Handsome Jack]] and [[MegaCorp Hyperion]] Take an active role in fighting the Vault Hunters. Notable Examples Can be heard in the first boss themes for Boom Bewm and Captain Flynt, atop the Bloodshot Dam while Hyperion Loaders are swarming the place, and even an orchestral version when fighting Wilhelm.

* OurMonstersAreWeird: Spiderlike creatures made of rocky crystal deposits, invisible bat-panther-scorpions, and seemingly normal bandits--until their helmets come off, at which point they drop their guns, turn red, and ''cough up their own skulls'', charging at you fists swinging with what's left of their heads suspended on a tentacle of viscera.

** When you're destroying some furnaces that belong to a gang of bandits, Claptrap says "Chill out!" and then, when your character doesn't laugh, proceed to explain in elaborate detail what sort of joke he just made, why it's funny, and then go on into a dry explanation of ''the entire concept of humour'' - apparently certain that your character will understand and burst into laughter at any second.

** The entire quest dealing with Faces [=McShooty=] mentions the words "face" and "shoot" no less than 10 times each. And that's not including what the guy actually rambles about (hint: it's about shooting him in the face).

* RageQuit: One sidequest in ''Dragon's Keep'' requires you to defeat a trio of rival gamers in specific ways to force them to rage-quit, including headshooting one with a sniper rifle, defeating another in melee, and teabagging the third's corpse.

* RecursiveAmmo: MIRV (Multiple, Independant Re-entry Vehicle)- and the Campaign of Carnage exclusive Crossfire grenades split into a bunch of little ones (although the Crossfire has a few bullets mixed in; it's a hybrid between the Bouncing Betty and MIRV grenade mods).

** An even greater meta-example was when Lilith and Roland reminisced over a story about Mordecai and Bloodwing. In the first game, Mordecai's action skill was Bloodwing, a bird that would attack enemies from a distance, but only if the player was aiming at said enemies. This led to a glitch where getting behind cover after summoning Bloodwing would have her fly around uselessly. [[AscendedGlitch It was spun into a heartwarming story]] where Bloodwing ''deliberately'' waited until Mordecai peeked out from cover to attack, because she wanted him to see her shred the bandits and be proud of her).

* VendorTrash: Most white weapons and some green ones, though to a much lesser extent than the first game. Now you'll be hard-pressed to find the 70-minus accuracy rifles and '''horrible'''-spread scatterguns that were so common in ''Borderlands'': you can easily use any weapon you get and be effective with it until you outlevel it by at least 5 levels, even if it's effectively a MasterOfNone. For shields, though, the deal's still the same: you won't stick with most of the shields you acquire if they don't have a gimmick like [[NoSell elemental immunity]].

* TooAwesomeToUse: The Golden Key, an item that opens an extra-special chest that gives out high-quality gear. However, the gear is scaled to your level, and there are very few ways to earn them, and those ways include real-life actions, like pre-ordering the game or going to a Gearbox event. It's pretty tempting to just hold on to it until you've hit the level cap before considering using it.
** This was before Gearbox started handing out ''dozens'' of these keys via key codes posted to its Facebook and Twitter account. Players who collect the keys frequently but use them rarely could easily have hundreds...which runs a serious risk of triggering a bug that causes you to lose ''all'' of your keys the moment you have more than [[{{Cap}} 255]].

** In a more immediate sense, rocket launchers. Yes, their damage output is beyond "pure carnage", they can take out hordes of badass enemies with less than a magazine if it's a Vladof or Bandit, and getting Second Winds with them is just a matter of there being an enemy around to kill... but good luck finding an ammo pickup for them with more frequency than every 6 ammo chests or so.

* RandomDropBooster
** The [[http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Vault_Hunter%27s_Relic Vault Hunter's Relic]], which you receive at the start of the first playthrough of each character if you own the Mechromancer's Pack or pre-ordered the game. It can be sold, but not dropped or traded. It slightly boosts the chances of receiving a non-common weapon.
** The [[http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Lucrative_Opportunity Lucrative Opportunity]] relic causes the vending machines to cycle through their inventory more quickly. Lucrative Opportunity relics can be stacked.
** In the third playthrough (Ultimate Vault Hunter mode), "chubby" enemies and legendary loot midgets have a high probability of dropping legendary items.
