  • The Cameo:
    • Penn and Teller's composer Mike Jones conducted the music in Moxxi's new bar.
    • Randy Pitchford confirmed that Jack's presence in the teaser was this, and not an indicator of his or AI Jack's return.
  • Creator Breakdown: Mikey Newman's notoriously poor health bottomed out soon after signing onto the project. Because of his decreased mobility and psychological trauma, he left Gearbox to focus on his less-strenuous YouTube channel full time. He did end up coming back to cut the launch trailer.

  • Dueling Works: With Rage 2, another open-world shooter set in a colorful, but chaotic, wasteland set several years after its previous outing. Both games have also been subject to a Sequel Gap (five years for Borderlands, eight years for Rage). Fitting, as the original Rage drew several comparisons to the original Borderlands.
  • Executive Meddling: According to Randy Pitchford, the game being temporarily exclusive to the Epic Games Store was due to 2K making the decision as their publisher.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Ray Chase replaced Troy Baker as Rhys.
    • Jim Foronda replaced David Eddings as Claptrap. His performance is quite similar to Eddings, though noticeably more nasally. Both Eddings and Gearbox were interested in him returning, but a deal couldn’t be reached.
