No, not really, just quite a few of the characters are reoccurring. The Angel, Claptrap (well one of them), Marcus, Zed, The Vault Hunters from the First game, Scooter etc. Its not a big deal, the story in the first one was basically 4 Vault Hunters jump off a truck to open the mythical vault, wackiness ensues they eventually open the vault, a monster comes out and you kill it then get the TROLLOLOLOL ending of "Oh hey the Vault won't open for another 50 years" or some bullshit. Thats about it.
