Hey guys, I just bought the GOTY edition of Borderlands 1 (only 19.99, what a steal), and i'm beginning to realize at level 7 that this game is extremely challenging. I'm wondering if you guys have any good tips for leveling up quicker, I can't branch out in the map at all or else i get slaughtered.
Side quests all the way. They aren't optional in the Borderlands games, and some areas of the game WILL hand you your ass if your character isn't sufficiently tooled up! For me, it was the bit where you have to take out a bandit named Sledge. He took me apart to the point where I almost gave up on the game... I ended up backtracking and mopping up six or seven sidequests to level up enough to be able to win that battle.
