Borderlands 2 follows the exploits of four new characters: Maya, Zer0, Axton and Salvador. These characters are attempting to follow in the shoes of the famous Vault Hunters from the first game.
The game begins with our new vault hunters taking part in a tournament run by the game’s antagonist, Handsome Jack. Jack encourages the would-be heroes to take part by offering incredibly rare and economically viable loot to the winner.
However, what the unsuspecting hunters don’t realise is that Jack has lured them into a trap in an attempt to kill them for his sick amusement.
