Borderlands – How much cash do you lose when you die in Borderlands


When you die in Borderlands, you keep all your items, but lose some cash when you respawn at a New-U station. I can't find a clear answers of what percentage of your cash is lost or if it scales with some other factor as well.

Best Answer

The amount of money you lose upon death is approximately 7% of the total amount you're currently carrying. While there is some variability on the Internet about what this % is (5%, 7%, 10%, etc.) the top voted answer here seems trustworthy as the user ran 3 separate tests all in a row.
