Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Requires Borderlands 2 (base game) to use this DLC
Take a peek at Pandora from behind the menacing eyes of Krieg, the Psycho Bandit, an all-new character and the 6th playable class in Borderlands 2. You’ve fought against them as enemies, now use that aggressive energy on the vault hunter’s side. Slice, dice, light yourself on fire and blow things up – taking damage was never so rewarding – or so much fun!

The sixth and final vault hunter for BL2, Krieg is definitely the most remarkable of the bunch gameplay-wise. Gearbox admittedly designed him around things regular players don't want to do ( running headfirst into gunfire, being ON FIRE, or just generally taking huge risks), this being the reason why I can't wholeheartedly recommend the Psycho. You see, Krieg plays very differently from other characters, while also being less flexible. You can build a gun-toting Krieg, but he'll be much weaker than any other ranged class and subsequently he'll be disappointing to play. No, Krieg demands you to build him the "right" way, he demands huge risks so he can reap enormous rewards. Whether or not you actually "enjoy" his style does not concern him. In a rather comical way, this "you're going to have to take risks" applies to PURCHASING him as well: He can easily become your favourite vault hunter or be a total waste of money. Two more things to talk about, one being the charachter itself, which is Borderlands quality (aka pretty damn amazing), Krieg's well written and voice acted. Also, he needs levels to be effective. Synergy is very important to his build, expect to feel pathetic for the first few levels.

“it's game about guns. why on Earth, why on Earth would you want to keep meleeing everybody? it's such an absurd idea” - TotalBiscuit well how wrong was that statement lol. having played over 500+ hours, and having played through all three difficulties on all six characters, KRIEG IS AWESOME! as in fun, enjoyable, actually gave a new less of life to the game. caveat emptor (buyer beware): “meh, this seems like a waste of money” is a common thought at first. and it does suck you have to play extra for Krieg (unless you brought the GOTY edition) but around level 31 you can unlock “Release the Beast” in his MANIA skill tree. soon as you understand what this does, you’ll start playing Borderlands 2 in a totally different way than you have been.

Probably the biggest departure of all the classes in Borderlands 2, the Psycho is something you'll either love or hate. His playstyle emphasizes a lot of dashing headlong into danger, balancing on a razor thin line between being a rage fueled beast of destruction, and lying dead in a gutter. The more you risk with the Psycho, the stronger he becomes. He gains buffs from gaining damage, and even has an entire tree dedicated to lighting himself on fire! Playing as the Pyscho is a lot different from the other classes. if you're interested in a character that puts it all on the line, getting up close and personal and grinding faces with a power saw, this DLC is worth picking up; if you prefer a more typical experience, you might want to stick to one of the other characters in the game.

If you've enjoyed Borderlands 2 so far, but have been eager to play it a little differently, you'd be remiss to ignore the new, and hilariously bloody Psycho class. Krieg is a fun character to use, despite being a bit risky with his more melee focused abilities. That said, he's an excellent addition to a team, and he has some of the funniest dialogue in the game if you pick him up. Kind of an accomplishment if you know the tragic backstory behind him. Either way, if you've always wanted to play as one of the Psycho enemies if they were awesome, Krieg has everything you'd want. Try him out, he's a great pick up for your roster.
Like Brick?Pycorax | Oct. 5, 2013 | See all Pycorax's reviews »
This is the character that you can really have fun rushing into the heat of the battle and not give a shit for strategy. Its just like Brick from the first game except better. The problem with Brick in the first game was that he couldn't do anything out of his range, making certain fights (eg. Krom) very hard to solo. The presence of the throw-able buzz-axe remedies this perfectly. Besides, who doesn't like throwing buzz-axes? The writing for this character is pretty amazing as well. The few lines that the developers were able to sneak in in between the action of the game are funny while being serious and dark in true Borderlands fashion. Whether it is exactly worth the full price of $9.99 is debatable, however.
