* NoPlotNoProblem

to:

* NoPlotNoProblemNoPlotNoProblem: The game certainly took a minimalist approach to storytelling. Most quests are told entirely through text descriptions when you accept them and turn them in, with story quests getting the occasional chunk of spoken dialog. What little plot there is can hardly be called complex. Still, the developers clearly did something right, because the game was popular enough to get four [=DLCs=] and multiple sequels, all of which integrated more plot into them.

** A repeater pistol can spawn with surprisingly high damage per bullet, even without getting the damage-boosting "Raptor" prefix. The legendary Firehawk pistol is one example.

The legendary Firehawk pistol is one example.hell of an example, pun intended. Its elemental multiplier is not the x4 the weapon card says - it's ''x6''. And it's ''always'' guaranteed to proc, so firing repeated shots without as much elemental tech behind them is still a valid tactic that'll roast the target, whatever it may be.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hitscan}}: [[AvertedTrope Nope]]. Every single weapon has a (usually) hidden projectile speed statistic that largely depends on the weapon type. Some - sniper rifle bullets for instance - travel so fast that it hardly matters. Others move so incredibly slowly that you're forced to LeadTheTarget even at nearly point-blank range if you want to hit anything. Most guns lie somewhere in between. It's such a pronounced gameplay feature that there actually are character skills aimed at increasing bullet speed.

Added DiffLines:

* WelcomeToCorneria: Everything and everyone that can talk has an extremely limited number of lines to tell, be it the protagonists, enemies or vending machines. While listening to the player characters' combat boasts usually remains entertaining for quite some time, having to listen to Marcus' cheap sales pitches ''every single time you access his machines'' might give rise to an irresistable urge to smash your controller into your speakers.

Added DiffLines:

* LawOfInverseRecoil: Comically averted with the Midget Shotgunners - every time they fire their oversized gun, there's a good chance the recoil will throw them on their ass, leaving them helpless for several seconds until they've scrambled back on their feet.

* {{Badass}}: EliteMooks are called this. On NewGamePlus, they get upgraded to [=BadMutha=], and then Film/{{Superbad}}s.

* '''''The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned''''': Dr. Ned, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial who is totally not his twin brother Dr. Zed wearing a fake moustache over top of a surgical mask]], managed to unleash a ZombieApocalypse upon Jakob's Cove.
* '''''Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot''''': A series of [[MonsterArena Arena]] challenges set by recently-divorced Mad Moxxi.
* '''''The Secret Armory of General Knoxx''''': A continuation of the main story. Enraged over the loss of the Vault, the decimation of their forces and the death of Steele (though mostly just losing the Vault), the Crimson Lance have decided that the Vault Hunters must die. They send a fresh army of Lance operatives, headed by seasoned General Knoxx, to both take out the Hunters and conquer Pandora for their own. With the help of former Lance Assassin Athena, the Vault Hunters must now fight to destroy the Crimson Lance once and for all, and maybe even get some sweet loot while they're at it.
* '''''Claptrap's New Robot Revolution''''': Due to the Vault Hunters being a massive drain on the economy, Hyperion hires the Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap to take care of them. Instead, he rallies the Claptraps into rebellion against the humans.

* BrickJoke: In the opening, Marcus mocks Mordecai for looking like "a Truxican Wrestler". ''The Secret Armory of General Knoxx'' has a Truxican Wrestler as a rare midget enemy, and yes, he's dressed like Mordecai.
