Game installs fine. New game can be started but freezes on random events.
What does not
unplayable as game freezes. This is probably connected to Bug 31406 (libxcb multithreading issues)
What was not tested
Game freezes/hangs at random places. Menus overlap each other so for example changing keybinding is impossible

The borderlands lancher is not working with wine. But to run the game, it is this application that steam starts first. To work around the problem, do the following:
Create a file named steam_appid.txt with the contents "49520" (without quotes).
Put this files into the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder
Then, every time you runs the game, first runs steam, and only when steam is running, start the game by running Borderlands2.exe (in the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder)
