Hammerlock's Borderlands 2 DLC Comes to Mac

New patch is also available, but not nearly as exciting

Mac owners can finally get their fill of shooting witch doctors and nodding approvingly at the sturdy mustache of a certain professor. Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, the third DLC campaign for Borderlands 2, has just been released for Mac and is available to purchase via Steam for $9.99. Huzzah and such!

Aspyr Media, the studio behind this and a handful of other Apple-ified ports, has also released the latest Borderlands 2 patch for Mac. Along with fixing a handful of gameplay bugs, the patch also allows cross platform play between Mac and PC users. Until a new PC patch hits and knocks everybody out of sync again, of course.

Additional patch notes:

  • Fixed the “use” description text on the HUD getting cut off prematurely when binding “use” to certain keys.

  • Fixed a bug that could cause the critical hit bonus to inconsistently be included on the item card of weapons that modify this stat like Miss Moxxi’s Bad Touch.

  • Fixed a bug causing decals to not be displayed when the framerate was set to 30FPS Capped.

  • Fixed a bug causing head customizations from the Mr. Torgue DLC to not unlock properly for Sirens and Mechromancers.

  • Fixed a bug where profiles would refuse to save when they were already corrupted on startup.

  • Fixed a bug where profile restoration code would sometimes trigger inappropriately.

  • Fixed a bug causing players to sometimes get stuck in the “Whoops” mission of the Captain Scarlett DLC.

  • Deathtrap can no longer restore an enemy’s shields, even though it was hilarious.

  • Fixed a bug that caused off-hand weapons to sometimes deal improper damage while Gunzerking.

  • Addressed an issue where shotguns did not receive full damage boosts from skills and gear.

We've spent quite a bit of time with our buddy Hammerlock shooting stuff on Aegrus, so check out our impressions of the DLC to see just what kind of game you'll be hunting (spoiler: the big type).
