Humor goes hand in hand with the Borderlands series. These are just a few of the funniest jokes in the show.
In the Borderlands series, there is a lot of funny stuff. In fact, one of the things the game is known for is its jokes. It’s another way in which the FPS series doesn’t let anyone down. It is sure to leave an effect on anyone who plays it, thanks to its colorful cast of characters with strong personalities, witty dialogue, and interesting quests.
In Borderlands, almost every other line is a joke or a metaphor. This has given fans a lot of things to think back on. The show has a good mix of low-key puns and jokes that have been around for a long time. Quite a few of them are also Easter eggs. These are just a few examples. There are many more.
The Sellout Gun
In Borderlands 3, the “Sellout” gun is a legendary pistol that you can get from the “Sellout” task.This gun can speak. And it really does say…a lot. The main bad guy in the game, Tyreen, gives it a voice and uses any chance to insult the character while they use it. Even while the character is reloading, the gun tells the enemies to attack.
The way that this gun was gotten is also pretty funny. In order to get this weapon from a side quest, the player must get caught in a death machine while Tyreen is recording for views. Once the character dies and comes back to life, selling out is complete, and Tyreen gives the player the gun as a prize.
“Porter Prison” is a side task in Borderlands 3 where the quest giver, Trashmouth, is stuck inside a portable toilet. The portable toilet is actually a jail, as the name of the quest suggests. The player’s goal is to get Trashmouth out of the toilet prison.
If this crazy account of the quest isn’t enough for you, the end is sure to blow your mind. Trashmouth does get out, but if what happens is any indication, he probably wishes he had stayed. There is so much waste in the portable toilet that it shoots up into the air and is never seen again.
Top Gun Easter Egg
During the side quest “Too Close for Missiles” in Borderlands 2, players may hear a lot of nods to the Top Gun movies. Almost every line of speech and action in this quest is a reference of some kind, and it’s all funny, especially for people who like the Top Gun movies.
Many famous lines from the first movie series are used in this quest. Many fans can see the connections as soon as they start the quest. All of the NPCs and the quest itself are very funny because they have that Borderlands charm.
The Fake Ending Of Borderlands 3
After an epic boss fight in which Troy dies, Ava gets siren powers and everything seems to be fine. That is, until Tyreen wakes up and seems to kill the main characters by throwing rocks at them. Then…it just stops. Players are given a message that says the story will continue in Borderlands 4, which makes them think they left the game on a huge cliffhanger.
Once the initial shock wears off and enough time has passed, the game starts counting backward from four. It turned out it was just a break the whole time! It goes without saying that Gearbox’s joke was amazing.
Psychos Who Rickroll You
People know Borderlands for the funny lines that enemies say when they die. Gems like “Jokes on you, I’m in massive debt!” and “I just paid off my house!” are just two of the many things players can hear when they kill enemies in Drift Boss.
In Borderlands 2, when Psychos choose to rickroll the player as their last words, that might be the funniest death quote. The last thing they say is “Never gonna give you up.” This is just another great joke from Gearbox, and it’s funny to hear it in-game.
This sounds just like what it is. Innuendobot 5000 is an NPC robot that was, you guessed it, programmed by Moxxi to run competitions and make innuendos. Every single thing this NPC says is a tease, and it’s not very subtle either.
This NPC shows up in both Borderlands 2 and the DLCs Mad Moxxi and Wedding Day Massacre. And every sly hint it makes is likely to make people smile or even laugh. People who like the show also seem to like him.
Anything Tiny Tina Ever Says
Tiny Tina is one of the most interesting people in the Borderlands series. This fan-favorite pyromaniac brings a lot of personality and fun to the games whenever she shows up. She is so popular that she has her own show, which is something she deserves.
Tiny In the series, Tina says and does so many funny things that it’s almost impossible to pick just one. “Climb the pipe to the train, or you’ll go crazy wut wut,” is one of her best lines. That’s a rap song I wrote,” and at one point she opens a door by blowing up the wall around it.
Face McShooty is an NPC who wants to make a dream come true. He wants to be shot in the face by the player. He mostly just stands there and yells at anyone who will listen to shoot him in the face. If you shoot him anywhere else, he will get mad. Neither physical damage nor a grenade will work.
After you finish his side quest and shoot him in the face as he asked, he thanks you before he dies. Why are we doing all this? Not much, but it is pretty funny. And players shouldn’t feel bad because that’s exactly what he wanted.
Claptrap Explaining Humor
Most of the time, describing a joke takes away all of its fun. In this case, the joke is the reason why. During a quest in an ice cave, Claptrap makes a joke by telling the player to “chill out.” This isn’t very funny on its own, but to Claptrap, it’s hilarious. So, when his joke didn’t make the player laugh, he assumed that the player didn’t know what humor was and started to explain it.
All of this leads to a funny exchange of words as Claptrap gets more and more angry that no one is laughing at his joke. It is pure comedy gold, and some players will definitely laugh, especially if they are doing the quest for the first time.
One of the best running jokes in the Borderlands series is about this famous figure. Butt Stallion is a pony with two unicorn horns that is made of diamonds. Handsome Jack did this to show off his wealth at first. This figure is so well-known that it has its own Funko Pop!
Even though Butt Stallion is a diamond pony, he has a lot of charm. She gets so sad when Handsome Jack dies that she turns into a statue, but she comes back in DLC material. Just the name is enough to make people laugh.
