Record Setting Gamer Hit 'Borderlands 2' Level Cap in 43 Hours!

There's a first for everything and Matt Siegfried wanted to make sure he was the first to reach the Borderlands 2 level cap. So he did what any championship gamer would do, waited in line at a midnight release for Gearbox's new shoot'n'loot sequel then went straight home and got his game on.

Siegfried – who has already reached #1 rankings for a multitude of titles – wasted no time jumping into Borderland's 2. As soon as he popped it in the disc drive he played all the way up to reaching his goal. The craziest part is that he filmed nearly the entire thing, which you can watch on his TwitchTV page.

After less than two straight days spent blowing away bandits, skags and the other fowl creatures of Pandora his character reached level 50. Siegfried official time came in at 43 hours, 15 minutes and 23.00 seconds. Play began Tuesday, September 18 at 12:30 a.m. and ended at 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday, September 19.

If you're not interested in watching the entire run you can check out the video below to see him kill the enemy that put him over the top. However, you should keep in mind that this it's a pretty spoiler-ish video -- don't say we didn't warn you!
