One of the best first person shooters (FPS) out for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, is CoD: Black Ops 2. With every new game comes new errors. Our focus is on the PC version. So if you have Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or even Windows 8, then you’re in luck! You can solve the
Call of Duty: Black Ops II Black Screen error pretty easily.
There are several tweaks for the game — including Steam copies of it — that can help get rid of the bug. A guide for doing so can be seen here: Call of Duty: Black Ops II Fails to Launch
Sequels usually aren’t that good, but Black Ops II was just as good, if not better, than the original!
It’s easy to level up fast in Borderlands 2 if you know how the game works. Those who played the original will also know what to do. It’s not a science or a hidden secret really — you just gotta think about what you’re doing.
However, there may be some things you do not know, and that is not your fault. These are specific to Borderlands 2, so vertains of Borderlands 1 would not be expecting these awesome shortcuts.
For example, Moxxi’s Endowment, which increases the amount of exp / experience you get from killing enemies will help you lvl up easily, efficiently, and at a fast rate.
If you can handle the battle, and have some party members, then fighting (and winning) against the difficult boss Terramorphous the Invincible, will also help.

A common problem with the game is that Borderlands fails to open after you launch it. This includes with Steam and through the game launcher itself.
It happens most commonly on Windows 7 and Windows 8 (consumer preview).
If you have Windows XP, then you’re OK. Windows Vista users may be effected too.

I’m happy to be able to say that I can now play Borderlands 2 on my Windows 8 operating system! Before, the game simply would not open!
Hopefully a real patch will come out for this so that a hotfix like supplied in the guide doesn’t have to be used next time.
What’s the best Borderlands 2 Solo Class?
We have the following available classes…
Axton the Commando / Commander / Soldier
Maya the Siren
Salvador the Gunzerker
Zer0 / Zero the Assassin
And soon…Gaige the Mechromancer.
I’d have to say Axton hands down! He conquers all battles with his trusty turret. Check out a cool solo build skill set for Commando here: Borderlands 2: Best Solo Class
He can tank, has a high DPS / damage per second, and is just the best solo class! Or at least the easiest one. Check out his skill trees.
If you have Borderlands 2 for the PC instead of for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 (PS3), then you have the ability to do a lot more Borderlands 2 Tweaks. Some of these are to increase the performance of the game so that it runs faster, whereas some are graphical changes or even key hacks.
Disable Borderlands 2 Cel Shading – This is pretty nice for those who do not like the artistic, cartoony cel shading that the characters are modified with. Easily disabled and my help increase the frames per second (FPS) of your game to make it less laggy. You can disable the black character outline shader too.
Borderlands 2 Disable Framerate Smoothing – Usually, it’s worth having enabled, but you can disable this as well if you so wish. It’s worth a try if you are having performance issues so go ahead. It’s a fast, easy tweak.
Disable Borderlands 2 Intro Video – If you want to stop that long opening cinematic, then good news. It is easy to do and just like the other mods / hacks in this post. Editing one file accomplishes it. Now you can skip it!
Unlock Borderlands 2 Promo Items – This lets you get not only new character skins for Maya the Siren, Axton the Commando / Commander / Soldier, Salvador the Gunzerker, and Zer0 / Zero the Assassin, but also some bonus items. Usually you have to preorder the game to get these. Easily hacked!
How to Get Golden Keys Borderlands 2 – Very useful. Do this mod and you will get all 254 golden keys. These can be used to open the gold treasure / loot chests like in Sanctuary…and have extremely valuable gear inside that scale to your level!
Please note that the promo and golden key mods require you to not patch your game, as doing so can cause them to no longer work.
Wondering what the best class in Borderlands 2 might be?
It’s a hard choice. You have Maya the Siren, Axton the Commando / Soldier, Salvador the Gunzerker, Zer0 / Zero the Assassin, and Gaige the Mechromancer.
Axton the Commander is fantastic for soloing, as his turret ability rocks, but depends on the turret too much.
Gaige the Mechromancer has a killer robot and the developers of Borderlands 2 said she’s superb for support AND for soloing.
Maya the Siren has a high rate of damage per second / DPS and support skills, but can lack defense.
Salvador the Gunzerker is great at killing crowds of people, but lacks defense unless you get tanking skills from his macho skilltree.
Zer0 / Zero the Assassin has no huge strengths, though his damage with an ASP is incredibly high and he can fight from far away better than the other characters.

After installing Borderlands 2, you probably encountered some pesky errors. Maybe less if you’re on Xbox 360 and PS3 / PlayStation 3 versions of the game, but it’s pretty likely on Windows (PC) for Steam versions or even if you have the DVD / CD copy of the game.
