About This Quiz

The Borderlands franchise is a certifiable monster at this point, and it can't be denied. It's up there with things like GTA and Fortnite in terms of popularity and success, and that is no joke. Borderlands has sold over 53 million copies, putting it well ahead of other huge competitors like Far Cry, Mortal Kombat and even Fallout. Five million copies of Borderlands 3 went out in just the first five days after the game was released. In total, the franchise has raked in over $1 billion. That's about as crazy as most of the characters you'll find in a Borderlands game.

With four games in the main series and a spin-off game under their belt, the world of Borderlands just keeps getting bigger and richer. Why is it so popular? It's probably hard to explain to someone who hasn't played it, but if you have, you absolutely get it. The gameplay, the characters, the absolute insanity that they pack into every single second and corner of the open world — this is it! This is the game! But which character in the whole pantheon of the history of Pandora is the one that seems to connect with you the most? Grab yourself a buzz axe and let's find out.
