Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt takes place in Aegrus, the uncharted territory
deep in the swamps of Pandora and features new appearances by familiar friends
like Sir Hammerlock and Claptrap. It also introduces some all-new characters,
like Hyperion Scientist Professor Nakayama, who wants nothing more than to
derail your hunting trip. With Borderlands 2’s cheeky adventurer as their
guide, vault hunters will explore the all-new environments of The Sun Swamps
while on memorable quests to collect irresistible new loot and fight
devastating new bosses, such as the cave-dwelling beast Thermitage. All the
while, up to four friends will cooperatively hunt down new enemies such as the
spider-like Two-Legged Drifters, flying Slagged Spores and insane Vampire
Witch Doctors – that unleash swarms of blood-thirsty bats. Vault hunters
beware: this is sure to be the most dangerous Borderlands hunt yet!

Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt is the third of four add-on content campaigns
for Borderlands 2. The Borderlands 2 Season Pass is still available for
