Drinking game for Borderlands:

General:

  • Take a shot every time you get a gun that you will use.
    • Also take a sip for every time you get a gun you won't use if you just want to get drunk really, really fast.
  • Take a shot whenever you perceive a Shout-Out.
  • Take a shot every time you get a second wind from near death.
    • Take two if you could have gotten a second wind, but all the enemies ran away.
    • Finish your drink if you get downed after killing all of the enemies in the area.
    • Drink until it stops hurting if you bleed out when the enemy you're shooting at is just one hit away from death.

  • Take a shot every time you hear Scooter's energetic voice say, "Catch a ride!" Given the number of times you use vehicles in this game this one might get a little bit on the dangerous side. Ellie's voice counts too from 2's Fight for Sanctuary story and onward.
  • Take a sip if someone tells Claptrap to shut up, or something to that effect.
  • Take a shot for each character with a prosthesis/disfigurement you encounter. Take two if the person in question got it willingly (e.g. Gaige).
  • Take a sip when you don't get a legendary item from an enemy's loot table when you're farming for them.
    • Take a shot when you do get a legendary item from an enemy's loot table when you're farming for them, but it has the wrong element or gun attachments.
      • Take a celebratory drink when you do get a legendary item from an enemy's loot table when you're farming for them, and it's perfect in every way!

    • Are you TRYING to kill us!?
  • Lilith players:
    • Take a sip every time you Phasewalk into a horde of enemies.
      • Take two if you thought it was just a couple enemies, then turned the corner.

  • Roland players:
    • Take a shot every time you use your turret just to Draw Aggro.
      • Take another two if you use it to run through an engagement altogether.
  • Take a shot for every incapacitated Claptrap you see.
  • Take a shot every time you hear, "Are you gonna squeal before we cook ya?!"

  • Take a sip when Claptrap calls you his own "minion"
  • Take a sip when someone says 'Got a job for you' before accepting a mission.
  • Take a sip when someone says 'Come on back' after you've completed a mission.
  • Take a sip when Psychos mention the word "mommy".
  • Take a sip when you get killed by a boss or a Badass enemy
  • Take a sip when Deathtrap gets glitched out (i.e. getting stuck on walls, under the floor, not moving)
    • If a friendly Mechromancer summons a Deathtrap who covers your inventory, take a shot instead.
    • If Deathtrap accidentally appears during some of the cutscenes, finish your drink.
    • Finish your drink if you summon Deathtrap when you really, really need him, but he starts attacking objects (shock cacti, Jack statues) instead until his timer runs out. Add an extra sip if cacti shock you as a result.
  • Take a sip when Axton compliments his Sabre Turret or Gaige compliments Deathtrap.
  • Take a sip when some NPC mentions buying or selling guns to Marcus.
  • Take a sip when Moonshot Blitzes are being fired at Sanctuary while you are idling.
  • Take a sip when Mordecai steals your kill in the Tundra Express, Wildlife Preservation, and Hero's Pass missions.
    • Take two if he steals your kill while on Fight For Your Life mode.
    • Finish your drink if you die anyway.
  • Take a sip when you use a Golden Key and it gives you nothing you can really use at the time. Take two if its weapon manufacturer isn't really ideal for this sort of weapon type (such as a Hyperion Sniper Rifle).
  • Take a shot when you find Michael Mamaril in Sanctuary.
  • Take a shot whenever Handsome Jack calls to insult you.
    • Take another whenever Butt Stallion makes an appearance. spoilers 
    • Add another if he addresses himself as the hero and/or you as the villain.
    • Finish your drink if he calls you a bitch.
  • Take a shot whenever someone named and important gets slagged.
  • Take a shot whenever you set an enemy on fire only to have it wear off when they're just one hit point away from death.
  • Take a sip, or a shot if you're feeling suicidal, every time Handsome Jack has a Kick the Dog moment.
  • Take a sip whenever Moxxi makes an innuendo.
    • You may want to have an ambulance on standby for this one.
  • Take a sip whenever Tiny Tina's voice gets really deep midsentence.
  • Take a sip if you reload an almost-full Tediore and end up throwing away most of your clip for no reason.
  • Maya players:
    • Take a shot whenever you phaselock the wrong target.
  • Gaige players:
    • Take a sip every time you miss a point blank shot as Gaige because your accuracy is shot to hell after racking up hundreds of Anarchy stacks. But only if you're suicidal.
    • Take a shot every time Deathtrap runs out of HP instead of timing out.
    • You "accidentally reload" when playing as an Anarchy Gaige.
  • Kreig players:
    • Take a sip every time you use your action skill.
      • Take another every time you die in the middle of it.
    • Take a sip every time Silence The Voices causes you to hit yourself in the face. Take a shot if it hits you more than twice in a row, 1-in-8 chance of self-injury be damned. Just chug if it's more than three times in a row, you'll probably need it.
  • Salvador players:
    • Take a sip every time you accidentally start Gunzerking with a weapon combination you didn't mean to bring out, like a Dahl sniper rifle and a Hyperion pistol.
