The talented folk at Gearbox Software were busy bees yesterday. Not only did they release Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, a sizeable pirate-themed add-on for Borderlands 2, but they pushed out a title update addressing a long list of technical hiccups too.
But there’s one tiny detail missing from this exhaustive change register: the patch also installs three trophies for an unannounced expansion called ‘Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage’.
- Explosive: Complete the mission “Long Way To The Top” (Bronze)
- Motorhead: Complete all Campaign of Carnage side missions (Silver)
- Obsessed: Collect 10 pictures of Moxxi in Campaign of Carnage (Gold)
As Borderlands veterans will know, Torgue is a Pandoran weapons manufacturer that specialises in well-rounded shotguns, machineguns and sniper rifles, distinguishable by their metallic paint scheme and weighty construction. Our guess is that Mr Torgue is the arms dealer’s founder, and Campaign of Carnage will ask players to aid him, amuse him or end him. Yes it’s a bit vague – maybe even obvious, but we’re videogames journalists, not detectives.
Perhaps there’s a clue hidden in Captain Scarlett’s booty. Wait, that came out wrong…
