The Hyperion Company, led by Handsome Jack, began to mine for Eridium and they found evidence along the way of yet another Vault. Jack then decided to take control of Pandora and civilize these borderlands by force.

A cinematic intro introduces the four main playable characters (not counting DLC characters) on their way by train to search for the Vault. Axton: The Commando, Maya: The Siren, Salvatore: The Gunzerker, and Zer0: A Number.

They are attacked by robots and bandits, sent by Jack, and work together to turn them into scrap metal and piles of goo.
