Borderlands 2 Achievements hint at 'Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty' DLC

References to a new area, guns, items, bosses and raids found

Achievements introduced in Borderlands 2's Mechromancer DLC have teased what sounds like a larger upcoming expansion.


References to a new area called 'Oasis' and a 'quest for hidden pirate's booty' have been discovered in the Achievements. According to Shacknews the content in question could arrive in a DLC pack called "Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty".

This is supported by information found in the PC versions source files: "Legends speak of Captain Blade's Lost Treasure of the Sands. Of a prize so great, that men would turn the sands red in pursuit of it.

"Of a pirate queen, courageous and deadly, who would stop at nothing to find it. Of a monstrous Leviathan. Of the Vault Hunters who journeyed to the desert town of Oasis, not knowing the horrors that would befall them."

Fans digging through the game files and posting their findings on the Gearbox forums have said the DLC will also include new heads for each class, a new rarity level called 'Seraph', new items and weapons such as Blood Relic, Anshin Evolution Shield, Scarlet's Greed, 12 Pounder, Little Evie, Stinkpot, additional bosses and multiple raids.
