Loot Caves Discovered in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Two YouTube videos explain how to boost XP and amass items with these two exploits.


Two inquisitive gamers have found separate loot caves in the 2K game Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, offering a bounty of XP and items.

The discovery comes just days after the game's North America release on October 14, and is inspired by the various loot cave exploits found in Activision's similarly styled RPG-shooter Destiny.

A YouTuber by the name "Deathmule" has published a video that uncovers the first loot cave, discovered on the mission "Let's Build A Robot Army." One specific challenge in the mission is to set up turrets to mow down an infinitely spawning gang of enemies. However, if players dispatch these enemies before the turrets do, they are rewarded with a trove of dropped riches.

Here's the video:

However, there are some caveats: According to Kotaku, the cave is inaccessible once the mission ends, so players will need to keep quitting the mission in order to keep the exploit open.

Meanwhile, the second loot cave was found by a YouTuber by the name of JHFLEETING, who discovered it during the Guardian Hunter mission late in the game. The challenge is to capture a guardian fire wraith, but if they are killed instead, the game respawns them.

Here's the video:

Because of the speed in which they respawn, players can boost their experience badass rank quickly.

GameSpot's Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel review claimed the game was enjoyable but noticeably flawed.

"Repetition and a lackluster story are its biggest shortcomings, but Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is different enough to separate itself from the shadows of its older siblings," wrote the game's critic Cameron Woolsey.
