Borderlands 2 issue of OXM offers Vault Hunters a new TV

Find a golden Claptrap cover and win a new telly

Our occasional drinking partners over at OXM are running their own loot hunt to coincide with their Borderlands 2 cover story - if you find a copy of the mag with Claptrap on the cover, you win a TV and signed copy of the game.

The new issue, on-sale Wednesday 8th August, has a choice of six Borderlands 2 cover designs - each of the new characters, enemy Handsome Jack and returning and rather irritating robot Claptrap.

There are only ten Claptrap covers, and anybody who finds one gets a 40-inch Samsung HDTV and copy of the game signed by Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford, who's been talking up Borderlands 2 features ahead of the game going gold and the first DLC being started last week.

The mag itself is "guest edited" by Claptrap himself, as relayed to Gearbox's writing team, which includes his personal advice on trolling and why Spelunky is a pretty good game but would be better with more dancing robots in.


The rest of Gearbox reveal new details on the characters and world of Borderlands 2, plus there's the first Xbox 360 review of Sleeping Dogs, the story of how Valve made Portal 2, and exclusive interviews with LucasArts and Industrial Light and Magic about how it's banishing the memories of Force Unleashed II with Star Wars 1313.

You can find out more over on the OXM website.
