At the beginning when you get off the bus look for the broken down gas station which is to your left past the claptrap. Search the gas station when it is your turn to move and you will find several money crates including a weapon chest on top of the building.

Mad Mel Fight Tactic

For the Mad Mel fight, the easiest way to win the fight is to allow yourself to get killed by them once. Then, once you have respawned at the autosave position outside the arena, switch to a sniper rifle and simply pick them off Mel! He won't come out to get you and their accuracy is obviously greatly reduced.

Quick Reloads

This is done by clicking the Right analog-stick to melee as soon as the cartridge has been removed or new rounds are being inserted. Doing this will instantly complete reloading the weapon.

Unlimited Pistol Ammunition

Use the pistol that regenerates ammuntion to gain ammo for any pistol. To do this equip the regenerating pistol to build up ammunition then switch to any other pistol.

Easy Money and Experience

During the tour at the start of the game follow the robot to the small campsite with the raised car next to the burning tires. On the way there collect ALL the guns and money and kill ALL the enemies. When you have done this pause gameplay and select 'Exit' and your character will be saved with the current items and experience then load the saved game so you start at the beginning again and repeat the procedure as many times as desired.

Quick weapon proficiency levels (except launchers)

To get quick proficiency levels with any weapon go to the Dahl Headlands and accept the mission "Big Game Hunter" from Edward Whitting. In this mission you have to collect bait to lure out a Skagzilla (Basiclly a giant Skag) and kill it. After you have killed it and turned the mission in you then quit to the main menu then reload your save, after you have done this go back to where the Skagzilla was and it should have respawned. This time when you fight it go to the side entrance and lure it over there, when it's there jump down from the ledge and the Skagzilla will not move and will constantly opens it's mouth to you (Its mouth is it's weak spot) use any weapon and kill it, this should get you usually up a level in proficiency (mabye more). If you reload the Skagzilla will have respawne..

Ghost-like ClapTrap.

In the town of fyrestone, there will be a house with two vending machines, upgrades and weapons, on the side of that house, are a few things you can jump on (back & right.) Get up there, and in the rocks, you'll see a green ClapTrap with a different voice.

Super glich (speed glich)

Duplicating Weapons

You need to be in a online game and need two people first run past the save point after it saves you need to get at leats 80 feet away from it so it can't activate second have the person drop the gun then boot him then pick it up and invite him back to the game and then you both should have the gun now (this works after all patches)

Faster fire rate with bolt and pump action weapons

If you are using a shotgun or sniper rifle with a slow pump or re-cock speed (e.g A Jakobs)to speed things up use melee and the pump or re-cock will finish instantly. This will allow you to fire your weapons faster than before.

Zombie Brain Harvesting Tips

There are several easy ways to make your zombie brain hunt in the zombie island

Downloadable content less infuriatingly long.

1:You should definatly have a good shotgun and a good sniper rifle.The sniper is good to get the attention of large groups while killing off 2 or 3 in the process. The shotty is good against zombies in ANY game I have ever played.

2:Always try to use incindary and explosive weapons, no elemental power is better than corrosive and electric against zombie flesh.

3:I have noticed that zombies are more likely to drop a brain if you kill them with a critical hit (A.K.A. Blasting their face off, another reason why the shotty and sniper are good weapons).

4:Since your going to need to get a lot of headshots, don't be afra..
