Borderlands 2: Challenge Guide (Challenge Accepted)

The following list are the challenges that you need to complete to earn “Challenge Accepted”. This requires you to complete all level 1 challenges that aren’t level specific. This may seem quite a task, but by the time you finish the game you will have completed most of them. So, this is just a checklist so you can see what requirements are needed.

There are a few of these challenges that can be a little tricky, or time-consuming but overall most are fairly easy and require little to no effort to complete.

Just remember that you only need to complete the first level of all of these challenges. Once you reach level 2 you can either move on, or continue to complete the challenge for more badass ranks.

Kill Jimmy Jenkins once

Out of all the challenges, this is the one that may cause the most problems. Jenkins is a random loot minion that jumps out of various loot boxes around the borderlands. You will know when he pops out as he will have a unique name of Jenkins. This is somewhat of an easter egg, but the developers left him in and made him a challenge. He’s extremely rare, so if you see him, make sure you kill him to complete this challenge.
