You may have seen some games raise their level cap by 5, or maybe even 10, but with The Crimson Lance Assassination Squads wreaking havoc and Crawmerax the Invincible being all invulnerable and stuff we knew you'd need more than just 10.

The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is an add-on pack for Borderlands that adds new guns, new Class Mods, new vehicles, new missions, new enemy types, and increases the level cap to 61.

    The overall attention in the Secret Armory is impressive, and the quirks that made the main game so memorable are definitely present here.
  2. General Knoxx is exactly the kind of DLC that the fans of Borderlands were hoping for: a brand new set of missions with new enemies, locations and loots. The high difficulty setting, especially on the second run, makes this DLC perfect for those who reached the previous level cap.
  3. The truth is, when it comes to DLC, nobody is doing this stuff as well as Gearbox's team at the moment.

    The best DLC available for Borderlands - An absolute must-buy for fans. [May 2010, p.83]
  5. In this third pack of downloadable content, Gearbox more than makes up for the missteps of Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, emptying out Pandora's pockets onto the Vault Hunters in a big way.
  6. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is a huge addition to Borderlands and delivers new enemy types, new weapons, new quests, new vehicles and rises the level cap to 61. Last but not least, it offers the chance to face the most dangerous enemy we've ever found in the game. Great fun and a good epilogue to one of the sleeper blockbusters of last year.
  7. It is funny, but the fact that it is so big makes large portions of the game seem like a boring chore.

    I just finished the Armory on Playthrough 1 with a lvl. 50 character. There were several points at which I either died or almost died. Knoxx I just finished the Armory on Playthrough 1 with a lvl. 50 character. There were several points at which I either died or almost died. Knoxx himself is one of the most thrilling and satisfying boss fights I've played in a while. I fear the 2nd Playthrough, only because I'm going to run out of money trying to conquer this massive, well-made add-on. Expand

    Amazing. Best value for money gaming I ever paid for. Gearbox improved the game in everyway that it needed improving, and then some. There

It adds a ton of new content in the forms of quests, a new story, new enemies, new vehicles and of course new weapons. Everything still has the same wit and charm as the base game. The level cap has been raised, making it worthwhile for anyone already at max level. The only minuses are that there are numerous glitches (my favorite being the time my character drove off without the car), and the severe amount of time wasted going to quests or backtracking. Still, this expansion is the best and completely worth the asking price. Expand

    Tons of fresh content, new missions, maps, great humor, weapons and the raised level cap is a giant plus. I had to subtract two points due to Tons of fresh content, new missions, maps, great humor, weapons and the raised level cap is a giant plus. I had to subtract two points due to the number of glitches (I've fallen through the world 3 times now), lack of fast transit system (just like in Zombie Island...it's really annoying to turn in a mission only to get a new one that requires you to drive/walk 10 minutes back to where you *just* were) and the ease of death while driving around. All things considered though this feels like a massive apology for the underwhelming Underdome DLC and is easily worth your $10. Expand
