In an interesting way to reveal the next set of downloadable content for Borderlands 2, the game’s spunky Mechromancer Gaige had her Twitter account hacked by a strange new character named Mister Torgue.

The “hacking” started just a short time ago, and here’s the series of tweets that were posted as a result:

Hey g*uys! Sorr#y for the lack of upd%ates lately. My ECHO com’s been on $the friTz. I thin^ some)_’s tr#4ng to h/*ck it

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH IT’S TORGUE TIME BITCHES

THIS IS MISTER TORGUE COMIN AT YOU FROM PANDORA I HAVE TWO QUESTIONS FIRSTLY ARE YOU READY TO BLOW SOME SH*T UP AND SECONDLY HOW ARE THINGS

ARE YOU A BADASS ENOUGH BADASS TO SURVIVE “MISTER TORGUE’S CAMPAIGN OF CARNAGE”? I’M LEGIT CURIOUS CAUSE I DUNNO YOU THAT WELL #BADASSITUDE

I NEED NEW PUNCTUATION THAT LOOKS LIKE AN EXPLOSION CAUSE PERIODS ARE TOO CALM AND EXCLAMATION MARKS LOOK LIKE AN UPSIDE DOWN LOWER CASE I

LOWER CASE IS FOR PUSSIES

OKAY THE NEW EXPLOSION-BASED PUNCTUATION LOOKS LIKE THIS (><)

WAIT I TAKE IT BACK THAT LOOKS KINDA LIKE A SPHINCTER ABORT MISSION

ON PANDORA SETTIN UP MY CAMPAIGN OF CARNAGE HERE’S A PICTURE OF ME THROWIN UP THE HORNS LIKE A BADASS #BADASSITUDE

That last tweet came attached with the image you see above, which it would seem is none other than Mister Torgue himself. Now, obviously, this is all the work of Gearbox and their attempt to find a creative way to announce Mister Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage—but, hey, it sure beats the typical press release.
