The Borderlands series is similar to Fallout, and many other RPGs, in that there are a ton of different ways to play the game: you can use different classes, you can stick to a single type of weapon, you can only use weapons from a single manufacturer. But there is one challenge that’s… different as it removes an important part of the game. Can You Beat Borderlands Without Using A Shield?

Can You Beat Borderlands Without Using A Shield? (in text form)
The first decision we need to make is what class to play as. Lilith is almost universally considered overpowered, but to be honest I never really liked playing as a Siren. Without a shield, health regeneration is crucial, which is why I chose Mordecai. After getting off the bus, I followed Claptrap, changed my colors to blue and yellow, and got into combat for the first time. While I only have 100 health to begin with, it’s not uncommon for enemies to drop health vials, so getting through the Bandits and entering Firestone wasn’t difficult at all.
Then I rescued Claptrap, killed a few dogs, and got the Medical Vending machine back online. Something happened here that occurs a few times throughout this run. If you don’t have a shield and you buy one or pick one up, it will automatically become equipped. Right now, it’s easy to un-equip it before it has a chance to recharge, but in the heat of battle it’s not so easy.
After killing a few Bandits and meeting T.K. Baha, I found Baha’s stolen food, bought a few grenades, and was off to Skag Gully to kill Nine-Toes. Not long after entering Skag Gully, I leveled up to level 5 and could finally send my combat parrot out to strike down my foes. I fought my way through more skags and bandits until I reached Nine-Toes, who died in about 5 seconds. I went down for the first time fighting one of his puppies, killed the second one rather quickly, and it was time to spend my 2nd skill point, also known as the first skill point to actually matter. The skill I’m after is Riotous Remedy, which regenerates up to 3% of your health per level over the course of 7 seconds. But 5 points must be put into the Gunslinger skill tree first, so I opted for the Deadly skill, because more critical hit damage is always a good thing.
Back in Firestone, I tried to take out Bone Head even though he was 6 levels higher than me. It went about as badly as you could have guessed. I needed to level up a bit before I took on Bone Head again, so I went back to Skag Gully to do a few side quests. Collecting the 8 Bladeflower Seeds was the hardest part of this run thus far, primarily because fighting multiple high-level Skags at once is not the easiest thing in the world. I found that sitting back and sniping everyone I could was the best way to go about this. Who’d have thought that the best way to not take damage was to not take damage. Show of hands, who saw that coming? Alright put your hands down, you weirdos.
With the seeds in my pants, I killed Scar to retrieve TK Baha’s leg, found the 2nd Data Recorder, turned in the missions, got myself up to level 10, bought a new shotgun, and was finally ready to take the fight to Bone Head. This was actually really annoying because I thought I was nailing him with headshots, but they were going right through him. After a few minutes of popping our from behind cover, I killed Bone Head, killed his friends, and caught a ride.

I've been trying to play this game on and off for the past few days, remember that can you beat video when Paul punched his ps4 controler... Well I've been close to doing something similar. I want to enjoy this game but it just keeps pissing me off, especially the fight for your life bit, and trying to controle those fucking cars makes me want to throw the controler at the TV. Paul, you must be a very good gamer, or maybe I'm just a very bad one. Still I enjoy your videos and I often learn something from your play throughs.

That stupide yeah that totaly possible the problem whitout shield is u need to level up and use u support much like mordecai whit her bloodwing that just take really much time that normal because we need to to level up or for take less domage and a weapon whit like burn or poison because those statut is ever better that bordeland 2 and 3 becasue in bordeland 1 the statut effect help just to much and try to level up that to way long if u do tbone junction or the zombie place u can level faster in 4h u can reach like level 25 really easy after u can clear 3/4 the game because in the end the enemie is level 30 need much heal to liek bloodwing she heal so fucking much about the domage she do and in bordeland 1 we can kill like some enemie whit 5 or 10 leve higher that youre but is totaly impossible in bordeland 2 and mordecai have penetrated def s the gardien in the end u one shoot them because those shield is just fucking high that is HP

Shields in the Borderlands series are next to useless. No matter how high the numbers are, they will break at the drop of a hat. High health and health regen are all that matters. Only use shields for their special abilities because they will be at zero capacity most of the time.

Brick doesn't have any regen and Roland & Lilith only regen health when their skills are active. Mordecai's regen is the best since the game is full of low level peasants that die in one shot to trigger it.

nah - the first one sure: legendaries just tend to have better parts the others legendaries tend to have unique effects that can make them vastly superior: extra bullets or additional damage than one shot would suggest etc

Sean Sutherland Legendaries in Borderlands 1 weren’t determined by their rarity, they were determined by whether or not they spawned a Legendary Part on a gun. So if it spawned on a green rarity gun, it would be Yellow rarity and if it spawned on a purple rarity gun, it would be Dark Orange instead. A rather massive difference between these 2 kinds

Not going to lie. It really bothers me that he didn't do the T-Bone Junction trick. Could've fixed the under level problem, and given you a lot of health to start with. Plus you could have the best ammo SDUs and a lot of extra pocket cash.

I haven't played the original game since....well since 10 years ago I guess. It's kind of insane seeing it again after getting into Borderlands 3. Quite a bit is the same, but you really notice just how different the overall game actually is when you look at the original like this.

I think you surely can, I played through the game with a lvl 14 shield (because of life regen) and a lvl 14 revolver, because mordecai makes so much damage with the revolver^^ I just walked in a room, shot everyone once in the head and everyone died ;P (so I killed a lvl 35 guy with a lvl 14 Revolver, Borderlands is broken ;P) I definitifely could play through it completely wthout shield, I just needed more transfusion bombs or classmods for liferegen^^ edit: you took mordecai too, nice^^

Watching this video finally showed me what bothers me when I play 2. I hate that 2 dropped this color scheme, and made the enemies just a touch more cartoonish. Something about it just adds to the fucked up feeling of Pandora. Makes it feel terrifying. Bl2 is just a jokey cartoony romp, which is still fun in it's own way Also there's no badass bruisers.

Im not trying to bag on mitten, cause hes the man. But normal mode on borderlands is really easy, compared to the higher difficulties. Espeacially on bl2.
