==============================================================================

Borderlands features four playable character classes, with each one possessing
their own special perks and features. All four play the same control-wise, so
your choice will likely depend on the gun perks and special Action Skills.


.============================================================================.
| ROLAND: THE SOLDIER                                                        |
|============================================================================|
|                                                                            |
| Weapon Specialty:                      Action Skill:                       |
|  - Combat Rifles                        - Scorpio Turret                   |
|                                                                            |
| General:                                                                   |
| Roland is the Soldier class member of the Vault Hunters, and (personally)  |
| has the best gun specialty out of the four classes. Roland's proficiency   |
| in Combat Rifles and Shotguns allows him to excel at both mid-range and    |
| close-range combat. Since Roland is considered a Jack of all trades in     |
| Borderlands, he is a great choice among beginners.                         |
|                                                                            |
| Action Skill:                                                              |
| The Scorpio Turret is your own personal turret that automatically targets  |
| enemies when deployed. Not only does it call attention away from you in    |
| firefights, you can also duck behind the energy shield the Scorpio Turret  |
| produces. The skill lasts for 20 seconds and can absolutely dominate foes  |
| when in tightly-packed hallways or rooms, isn't as effective against       |
| airborne baddies or enemies on a higher/lower elevation than the turret.   |
|                                                                            |
| Skill Tree:                                                                |
| Roland is arguably the best support character in the game due to his skill |
| tree. For solo play, the Infantry and Support Skill Trees are both useful  |
| in that it greatly increases your offensive and defensive capabilities,    |
| respectively (ex: Guided Missile and Supply Drop). However, the Medic tree |
| is the way to go when playing with friends - with skills like Aid Station  |
| and Grit, a Roland under the Medic Skill Tree is an invaluable teammate    |
| when going against the best Borderlands has to offer.                      |

| Mordecai is the Hunter class and prefers Sniper Rifles and Revolvers over  |
| all other weaponry. As a result, this character class is known as the      |
| "sharpshooter" due to the character's pinpoint accuracy when upgrading     |
| Skill Trees. Using Mordecai forces you to use a step-back approach rather  |
| than a wild, run-and-gun method of offense.                                |
|                                                                            |
| Action Skill:                                                              |
| When used, Mordecai's trusted Bloodwing pet is released into the open and  |
| dive bombs the nearest enemy, usually resulting in an instant death.       |
| Under default setting, the Bloodwing only attacks one enemy before         |
| returning to its owner, but upgrades to your Skill Trees allows it to      |
| target multiple foes in one go, as well as other perks such as dropping    |
| more enemy loot and converting damage into health for Mordecai.            |
|                                                                            |
| Skill Tree:                                                                |
| Mordecai's Skill Trees don't aid friends in co-op as much as Roland, but   |
| still offer some nice support boosts when playing with others (Smirk,      |
| Swipe). This character's Skill Trees are broken up nicely based on your    |
| preferences. You like Sniper Rifles? Sniper Skill Tree. Maybe Pistols      |
| instead? Go for the Gunslinger Skill Tree. Fancy your Action Skill? Rogue  |
| Skill Tree is your choice. Mordecai definitely favors solo players despite |
| some nice gems.                                                            |

| The only female Vault Hunter, Lilith is more than just a pretty face. She  |
| possesses unique magical powers and is classified as a Siren. Due to her   |
| very interesting Action Skill, Lilith is generally regarded as tough to    |
| use for beginners and is a good choice for expert players looking to       |
| tackle Borderlands under a different approach. Lilith is almost a          |
| combination of mages and thieves from traditional role-playing games.      |
|                                                                            |
| Action Skill:                                                              |
| Lilith's Phasewalk Action Skill allows her to become invisible to enemies  |
| (teammates are still able to see her) for a short period of time, allowing |
| you to sneak past foes or confuse them during combat. While entering and   |
| exiting out of Phasewalk, Lilith emits a shockwave that deals damage       |
| (Phase Blast). To truly get the most out of Lilith's abilities, you must   |
| fully upgrade Phasewalk via her three Skill Trees.                         |
|                                                                            |
| Skill Tree:                                                                |
| Any four-person team should always include at least one Lilith character   |
| due to her Phasewalk Action Skill. As mentioned, using Lilith in solo play |
| forces you to look at Borderlands in a different way, so you'll likely be  |
| focusing on gaining elemental abilities and upgrading Phasewalk. The       |
| Elemental Skill Tree (naturally) gives Lilith elemental boosts. Assassin   |
| Skill Tree can turn Lilith into a stealthy character while the Controller  |
| Skill Tree favors your shield and allows you to Daze enemies.              |

|  - Rocket Launchers                     - Berserk                          |
|                                                                            |
| General:                                                                   |
| Unlike Lilith, and Mordecai to an extent, Brick is an in-your-face type of |
| character. As a Berserker, Brick uses brute force and tough, rugged guns   |
| such as Rocket Launchers to get the job done. Due to his Action Skill and  |
| Skill Trees, Brick is probably not the best choice for beginner players    |
| (especially when playing alone) due to his focus on close-range combat.    |
|                                                                            |
| Action Skill:                                                              |
| When activated, Brick enters a state of unadulterated rage, sheathing his  |
| current weapon and using his fists for combat. You can use the Left and    |
| Right Triggers to punch your opponents. This Action Skill generally is     |
| considered the worst out of all the character classes since it has         |
| virtually no range, although there are some skills that greatly upgrade    |
| Berserk's use in battle and the positive effects it has on Brick.          |
|                                                                            |
| Skill Tree:                                                                |
| Brick is a solid option as a teammate since he is best used as a Tank - a  |
| target that can soak up damage and call attention away from friends. As    |
| expected, the Tank Skill Tree helps build up Brick's durability and        |
| resistance towards damage. Brawler is used to upgrade your melee attacks   |
| and Berserk Action Skill (Sting Like a Bee being particularly useful). If  |
| you want to focus more on gunplay, go for the Blaster Skill Tree: it       |
| caters towards Brick's affection for Explosive weaponry.                   |

[4] THE BASICS                                                          [0400]

==============================================================================

Borderlands is primarily a first-person shooter but also contains many RPG
elements such as different character classes, a mission-based story mode,
leveling up, and a heavy focus on looting.


.----------------------------------.
| Choosing (and Using) a Character |_________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Your first order of business is selecting a character. As mentioned above,
there are four available character classes to choose from at the start of the
game. They each have different Action Skills, Skill Trees, and weapon
specialties.

 .---------------.
 | Action Skills |
 '---------------'
 - Action Skills are special abilities held by the four character classes. I
   gave a bit of detail on the specific Action Skills in the previous section,
   but an Action Skill is used by pressing the Left Bumper. After its use, it
   enters a cooldown period where it must recharge before it can be used.
   Your character's Action Skill is unlocked once you reach Level 5.
   
   To boot, you can collect Eridian Artifacts that can give your Action Skill
   elemental properties (Fire, Shock, Corrosive, or Explosive). As the game
   progresses, you can find higher level Artifacts (up to Level 4) which
   increases the potential to deal elemental damage to your enemies.

 .-------------.
 | Skill Trees |
 '-------------'
 - Once you obtain your Action Skill at Level 5, you unveil the Skill Trees.
   Each character has three available Skill Trees that are used to upgrade
   your character's Action Skill and general stats. Each three Skill Trees
   for the different classes are all varying and allows you to approach the
   game at many different angles. Even if two people are playing as the same
   character, they may operate much differently based on what Skill Tree they
   followed.
    
   After Level 5, you earn a Skill Point every time you level up. These can
   be used on skills in the Skill Tree. In addition, every single skill has
   five levels (excluding your Action Skill), so you can use up to five Skill
   Points on a skill to fully upgrade it. You aren't restrained to a Skill
   Tree once you've begun, so you can jump back and forth between the three.
   If you have The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC, you can reach up to
   Level 69 with your character and fully upgrade all three Skill Trees!
   
   I think the most important element of Skill Trees, and something that all
   players should be aware of, is the option to reset your Skill Points. On
   any New-U Station, under the registration tab, you can pay a fee to reset
   all your Skill Points if you want to respec your character. This does not
   wipe out your Skill Points: it merely gives them all back to you and
   presents you with a clean slate to work with.
   
   This is especially useful late in the game when you may be stuck in a
   challenging area (and one particularly invincible DLC boss), because money
   is a non-issue as the game progresses.

 .--------------------.
 | Weapon Specialties |
 '--------------------'
 - Every character class has at least one weapon specialty, which means that
   they start off having a higher proficiency with this weapon type. Also,
   depending on your weapon specialty that weapon type will appear more often
   when looting.
    
   In the inventory menu there is a list of weapon proficiencies. You can
   level up your weapon proficiency based on how much you use that weapon
   type. The more you shoot a gun type, the more proficient you become in it,
   which in turn boosts stats such as reload speed and recoil reduction. So
   even if you aren't pleased with your character's initial weapon specialty,
   you can use any gun you choose.

As you play through the game, level up, and use Skill Points, you are given
more options to increase your character's stats. Class Mods are available in
the game for the four character classes. Like weapons and items, Class Mods
can either be purchased from vending machines or found as loot.

When equipped, Class Mods give you special weapon boosts, whether it be an
increase in damage from Shotguns or added Corrosive Damage to Combat Rifles.
In addition, Class Mods also increase the efficiency of specific character
skills (which only works if you have added at least one Skill Point to the
skill). So on top of varying character classes and Skill Trees, you now have a
wide array of Class Mods to choose from to create a truly one-of-a-kind
character.

Your Storage Deck is a section of your inventory (press Back) that contains
every item, weapon, and equipment piece you currently hold. Your Storage Deck
is of average size at the start of the game, but you'll soon come to realize
that you must make choices based on what you should carry and what you must
ditch. Throughout the game, you can upgrade your Storage Deck size by rescuing
injured Claptraps, so be on the lookout for whimpering bots when you are out
completing missions.

The D-Pad is used as your weapon equip slots; at the start of the game, you
can only equip two weapons at a time, but as you progress through the game you
end up with four weapon slots.

When visiting vending machines, you can purchase ammo capacity upgrades in
addition to actual ammo. When bought, the amount of ammo you can carry is
increased. Make sure to save some money for these ammo upgrades as you travel
through the game's settlements and visit ammo vending machines.

As you can see, there are a multitude of ways to beef up your character as you
play through Borderlands!


.-------------------.
| Surviving Pandora |________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Pandora, the planet where Borderlands takes place, is one rough patch of land,
and you will need all the help you can get in order to survive against
bandits, Skags, Rakks, Spiderants, and much more. Your character's health bar
is displayed at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Your HP increases
every time you gain a new level, and sometimes by upgrading skills or wearing
certain equipment. There are many healing items strewn throughout the world
that allow you to regain health.

On top of your health, you can also equip a shield that helps absorb enemy
damage. This appears as a blue bar just above your health. When you take
damage, the amount is removed from your shield, so your health will only begin
to drain if your shield is completely busted.

Shields have their own health bar and all shields regenerate after about five
seconds of inactivity, so make sure to find cover when you are taking damage
so your shields can recharge and you can conserve health. Like other
equipment, there are tons and tons of randomly-generated shields out there
that differ in shield health amount, recharge rate, and other perks. 

If you encounter the unfortunate situation where your HP does drop to zero,
not all is lost. Your character does not immediately die when they run out of
HP; instead you are Crippled and have a chance to revive yourself. When in
this Crippled state, you can no longer move but can still aim and shoot the
gun currently in your hands.

As the screen fades and the timer runs out, you have a select amount of time
to kill one enemy before you bite the dust. If you manage to slay an enemy
while Crippled, you get a Second Wind - your character receives 25% of their
HP back and you are back on your feet again. Otherwise, you die and respawn
at the nearest New-U Station (save point), having lost 10% of your current
cash amount. 

The simplest and most obvious way to stay healthy and avoid constant death is
to level up your character. This is done by gaining Experience (XP) by killing
enemies, beating missions, and completing Challenges. There are at least 100
available Challenges in the game and most of them are trivial in nature and
can be completed during the course of a playthrough (kill xxx amount of
enemies, open xxx chests). You can view Challenges in your inventory to keep
track of your progress.


.------------------------.
| The Importance of Loot |___________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

The main way to obtain cash, items, and weapons is through looting. That means
searching dead bodies, dumpsters, lockers, mailboxes, and even toilets for
goods. Keep in mind that pretty much everything in Borderlands is randomly
generated (more on that later) including lootable objects and chests, so make
sure to search everything in sight before clearing an area - you never know
what treasures you may find!

While everyday objects such as lockers and dumpsters typically only contain
cash and items/weak weapons, the best way to find new weapons is to raid
chests. There are several types of chests in Borderlands, with red chests
usually yielding the best rewards. 

Borderlands touts an impressive line of weaponry: since weapons are also
randomized, there are over a million gun combinations possible. With that
said, there is no way to list every possible gun available since weapons are
created from a basic template and randomly adjusted - even key weapons dropped
by bosses have different stats for every player.

I'll go more in-depth on weapon randomization in its respective section, but
it is important to test out guns you find because no two are alike. You can
compare weapon stats with each other in your inventory, but note that stats
can be sometimes deceiving and it's best to physically test out weapons before
making your decision.

As a general rule of thumb, you can pay attention to the gun's color (the
inventory text and also the gun's glow in the game) to determine its rarity -
rare guns are generally better than common ones (a case otherwise would be
comparing a Level 40 common weapon with a Level 15 rare weapon... obviously

                                 when in the field to automatically get a hint

  Armory of General Knoxx DLC    the hardest to come across but offer some of
                                 the best options in firepower. Pearlescent
(cyan being the actual color) guns are the rarest guns in Borderlands, but are
only available in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC.

While gun color and rarity is a good tool for weeding out weapon options,
always look at the gun's level and use the compare feature in the inventory to
truly know what you are getting.

| Managing Your Inventory |__________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

At the start of the game, your inventory can get cluttered very quickly since
it is so small. You will often be scrambling for a vendor in order to sell all
the crap you've been looting from chests and fallen enemies.

There are a number of extremely crucial sidequests that feature you rescuing 
injured Claptraps. These "Claptrap Rescue" missions are important because they 
offer Backpack SDUs as rewards. When used in the inventory menu, they increase
the number of slots by three.

Not counting the story mission in the beginning of the game (it doesn't yield 
a Backpack SDU), there are ten of these quests in the game, which offers an 
additional 30 slots in your inventory, giving you a total of 42 slots by the 
end of the game. Throw in three more from the three story DLCs, and you can
have a whopping 51 slots to carry equipment!

Now these side missions are available during Playthrough 2, so you have the
chance to increase your inventory even more. However, during your second
playthrough the Claptraps may not always reward you with a Backpack SDU.

As you progress through the game and end up with a massive inventory, you have
a lot more freedom with what you can keep and what you must drop. It is always
important to keep different guns with you in order to swap out for specific
situations. I also recommend keeping at least one weapon of each element type
(Fire, Corrosive, Shock, Explosive), although Explosive isn't mandatory. That
way you have an answer for any challenges the game throws at you.

This goes for grenades and shields as well. There are some shields out there
that offer health regeneration, which helps eliminate the need for stocking
up on Healing Kits. However, these shields usually have very low Capacity and
Recharge Rate. For example, you receive a unique shield (Wee Wee's Super
Booster) for completing the "King Tossing" side mission in Tetanus Warren. It
has the ability to regenerate your health, but its overall stats suck by the
time you reach Rust Commons East.

A good tip for cheap health regeneration is to keep a shield such as Wee Wee's
Super Booster in your inventory at all times. When you are low on health,
switch to the shield to regenerate your health over time, then switch back to
your shield of choice when you health is completely filled (disclaimer: the
process usually takes a minute or so, so only attempt this when there are
little to no enemies around). That way you don't have to worry about keeping
Healing Kits in your inventory or trying to locate a Med Vendor.

Your inventory gives you a lot of playing options. If you are a fan of
Pistols, keep your inventory stocked with Repeater Pistols and Revolvers from
different weapon vendors and with different stats. Play off your strengths and
be creative!

|                                                                            |
| A mysterious, disembodied woman spoke to you and told you to follow this   |
| little robot into town. That seems like the best course of action, for     |
| now.                                                                       |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

After you choose your character class, they will get off the bus to Fyrestone.
The local Claptrap gives you a fancy HUD and boots it up right in front of
you. The mechanical goofball over to the New-U Station on the side of the
road. However, do not follow him just yet.

Walk around the bus stop and make your way towards the Fyrestone Motel. There
are several lootable objects around the outside and in the side rooms:
dumpsters, lockers, safes, and even a toilet. Anything that has a green light
can be looted, and the light will turn red once you've searched it. Press X to
open these objects and collect the loot. As a rule of thumb, holding down X
allows you to automatically collect any nearby loot - a real timesaver.

You can use the generator on the left side of the building near the neon sign
to reach the roof. Up here you'll find a [RED CHEST]: red chests always
contain new equipment (usually weapons), so make sure to loot as many as you
can throughout your journey. Now return to the Claptrap. 

At New-U Stations, you are able to change your name, customize your
character's color, and when the time comes, reset Skill Points and use Fast
Travel. Most importantly, they act as save points and respawn locations. For
now, tweak with your name and color scheme before exiting.

As the Claptrap tries to open the gate leading to Fyrestone, a mob of bandits
ride in and cause some general havoc. Sprint forward (click the Left Analog
Stick) and take cover behind the rubble on your left. Use the Left Trigger to
aim down the gun's barrel and aim at the Bandit Thugs and Bandit Raider ahead.

When fighting enemies, place your target reticule to reveal their name and
level. Enemies that are at a much higher level than you are incredibly tough
and are likely too hard to take down at your current state.

Just like much of the items and weapons in Borderlands, enemy and boss levels 
are not concrete and are instead relative to your current level, so they may
slightly fluctuate from the numbers posted in this guide. However, they should
be fairly accurate since I am playing through a new playthrough as I am
writing this guide. 

Generally speaking, you may be out of your league if you are fighting enemies 
at least four levels higher than you. These guys here are fine: they are all
Level 1 and Level 2.

Shoot down the first few bandits and loot their bodies for cash and possible
weapons. Scrounge around for more lootable objects and proceed down the road.
There are a couple more Bandit Thugs and Bandit Raiders here that you should
be able to take down. Be aware of the red barrel near the house on the left;
this is an elemental barrel that can be blown up to damage enemies as well as
yourself. This one happens to be a Fire barrel.

Claptrap notifies you of another [RED CHEST], so walk up to it and search its
contents. By now you likely have more than two weapons in your inventory, so
you can press Back and access your Storage Deck to equip and remove them.

You can hit X to compare weapons with each other to determine the best
possible choice for your current scenario. Try it out now, and then pick which
two weapons you want to move forward with. Like I mentioned earlier, you are
not forced to use whatever your class's weapon specialty is, so feel free to
use whatever gun type you like best and don't feel restricted based on your
character class.

The gate to Fyrestone is shut tight, so crouch down with B and take the road
less travelled instead. Crouch and jump your way around the rubble until you
encounter another group of bandits. Pay attention to their own equipment: for
example, if a Bandit Raider charges you with a Shotgun, make sure to take him
out from a safe distance.

By the time you reach Fyrestone, you should gain a level. Your HP is fully
restored when you gain a level, so don't worry if you were cutting it close
back there. Leveling up also increases your total HP count and increases the
amount of damage you deal.

Once you clear the bandits out of Fyrestone, the mysterious girl returns and
then disappears after a short word. Take a look around town and search the
place for more loot. Unfortunately, none of the town attractions are available
yet, so talk to Claptrap once you are ready. Doctor Zed grabs your attention
from inside a building, giving you access to the next mission.

Your HUD is updated to include active missions: the green flashing diamond is
your waypoint, and it gives you the direction to travel to reach your mission
destination. In this case, your next objective is directly in front of you;
the switch on the door of Building 03. Hit it with X to open it up.

 - Building 03 open: Objective Complete

Now head inside and talk to Dr. Zed... don't mind the dead body on the rather
shoddy operating table in front of you. I am sure he has his proper

| Outside of Fyrestone, just past the gate and across the road, you'll find  |
| several skag dens. A skag is a vicious four-legged creature, and they'll   |
| eat anything, including you. I wanna know if you can handle yourself in a  |
| fight against some of these beasts, so head on out there and kill some of  |
| 'em for me. If you're still in one piece, then c'mon back.                 |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Accept the mission, then raid Dr. Zed's pad before returning to Claptrap. He
eagerly escorts you to the gate outside of Fyrestone. Unfortunately, a bandit
drive-by interrupts your quest. Wipe out the bandits that jump over the gate
and then attend to the wounded Claptrap. This mission will have to be put on
hold for the moment...

Once you have completed the mission "Claptrap Rescue", you can resume
progress. Claptrap springs up and opens the main gate leading out of town.
Head south through the gate to stumble upon a Skag den. This particular den is
only inhabited by Level 2 Pup Skags. These monsters are very easy to bring
down and shouldn't give you any trouble. All Skags have a weak point in their
mouth, so aim and fire whenever you see one roar and extend its nasty three-
hinged jaw.

 - Skags killed: 5/5
 - TURN IN!

Once you have killed five Pup Skags, return to Dr. Zed with the news.

This mission springs up before you can finish the previous one, "Skags at the
Gate". Approach the downed Claptrap and hit X to perform a diagnostic on the
poor fella.

 - Diagnostic performed: Objective Complete

In order to restore Claptrap to his normal self, you must obtain a Repair Kit.
Use the waypoint on your HUD to pinpoint the location of the kit here in
Fyrestone. Proceed north back towards Dr. Zed's house and stop near the
building on the left side of the cemetery. The [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT] can be
found on the table up against the building.

 - Repair Kit: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Use the Repair Kit on the Claptrap to repair him and complete the mission. Now

| If you're gonna head out of town, you need a shield. A shield forms an     |
| invisible barrier around you that absorbs damage. Normally, you'd buy one  |
| from the med vendor here, but this one took a bullet during the bandit     |
| raid. Fortunately, it just needs a new Power Coupling, and it so happens   |
| there's an old vendor we can use for parts. It's right outside of town,    |
| down the road east. Go grab the part, install it into the med vendor, and  |
| buy yourself a shield.                                                     |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Take the southern exit as if you were heading back to the Skag den, then hang
a left and continue east. If you open up your map (hold down Back), you can
get a view of the Arid Badlands in its entirety. The waypoint is marked on
your map at the end of the eastern road.

Proceed down the road towards the old vendor. There are two Skag dens on
either side of the vendor, so expect a wave of Pup Skags. Back away and plug
at 'em with your weapon of choice, then remove the [POWER COUPLING] from the
side of the dilapidated med vendor.

 - Power Coupling: Objective Complete

Make sure to enter the shack next to the vendor to find some lockers and
boxes to open. Collect the loot inside, then backtrack to Fyrestone and enter
Building 03. Place the Power Coupling on the side of the Med Vendor to boot it
up.

 - Med Vendor repaired: Objective Complete

Now you can start shopping at the Med Vendor. Here you can buy the newest
available shield as well as healing items such as Healing Kits and Insta-
Health Vials. If you are in need of health, try picking one up: Healing Kits
are kept in your Storage Deck and must be manually used while Insta-Health
Vials immediately restore lost health.

As for the shield, the Med Vendor has four TDR-OBS Standard Shields. They all
have exactly the same stats so it does not matter which of the four you
purchase. As with all vending machines, there is a special "Item of the Day",
but this shield is likely out of your price range and too high a level. Go
with one of the affordable ones.

 - Shield purchased: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Now that you have a shield, you are better off in gunfights: damage dealt to
you is first subtracted from your equipped shield. Shields have their own
health bar and will recharge after a few seconds of downtime, so if you are
ever in a tight jam try and find cover and let your shield recharge. Now talk
to Zed to turn in the mission.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Nine-Toes has a stranglehold over portions of the Arid Badlands, including
Fyrestone, so it is time to break free and put a dent in his plans. The first
order of business would be to wipe out his sentries in the outpost west of
Fyrestone.

Make sure to pick up a Minor Healing Kit or two, then exit town and proceed
southwest. Once you're across the street, follow the path west of the ravine
towards the outpost; take out any Pup Skags you find along the way.

Even though you must kill eight baddies, there are likely more than that here.
The first two ambush you as soon as you reach the front gate, so quickly
down them. The area contains Level 2 Bandit Raiders, so this is nothing new.

From this gate, you can follow the metal walkway on the right to flank some of
the bandits and take them by surprise. Take cover behind the barricades and
buildings and aim for their heads in hopes of scoring critical hits. There are
a few elemental barrels you should watch out for.

 - Bandits killed: 8/8
 - TURN IN!

Once you have slain eight bandits, you are free to return to Dr. Zed. But
first make sure to search the outpost for any loot. A [RED CHEST] is lying
south/southeast of the Arena entrance. Now dash back to Fyrestone and turn in
the mission.

As a side note, check out the Arena here if you are playing with friends; a
friendly game of slayer may be a nice retreat from the perils of Pandora!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

As with the last mission, exit Fyrestone and start heading southwest. A few
bandits will likely spawn on the road north of you, so deal with them. Pass
by the trail leading to the outpost and continue southwest. This trail takes
you to T.K. Baha's farm, where the man himself is waiting for you on his
front porch.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

This next mission will be taking you out into the plains west of T.K. Baha's
farm. The upcoming area is Skag territory, so get your weapons ready. It is
not uncommon for Skags to even wander into T.K. Baha's farm. Use your map to
locate each of the four food supplies; they appear one at a time on the map,
so search for the one closest to you and let your waypoint take you to the
remaining ones.

Also note that in addition to the regular lootable objects you've encountered
so far, you can also search Skag piles that litter the ground. Skag piles are
globs of assorted objects regurgitated by Skags; most of the stuff is useless
like bones, but you can occasionally find cash, ammo, and equipment.

Most of the stolen food is found in front of Skag dens, so you will have to
wipe out the homeowners before you can take back the prize. The first [STOLEN
FOOD] item is directly in front of a Skag den, while the second [STOLEN FOOD]
is slightly northwest, in front of a cactus-like plant.

The third and fourth food [STOLEN FOOD] pieces are farther northwest, in front
of two Skag dens and not too far from a giant ramp made of sheet metal. You
may encounter a couple Skag Whelps alongside the Pup Skags; they are more
durable than their infant counterparts.

 - Stolen food: 4/4
 - TURN IN!

Rummage through the remaining Skag piles and head underneath the large ramp
to spot a pair of ammo crates and some loot boxes. Afterwards, backtrack to
T.K. Baha's Claim (remember that you can sprint by clicking the Left Analog
Stick). If you were to proceed northeast from here, you'd end up at the Arena
entrance at the bandit outpost, but stay on track for the time being so you
can return the stolen food.

| Good news! I just heard Marcus reopened his weapon vendor in Fyrestone!    |
| Before you go after Nine-Toes, you gotta get yourself some grenades. I'm   |
| so happy you killed them skags that I'd just hand you some, but I don't    |
| have any left after my last fishin' trip. So, head over to Fyrestone and   |
| buy some grenades. Then come on back.                                      |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

You get a message from Marcus Kincaid informing you that his shop in Fyrestone
is now open. Run down the road leading back to Fyrestone and fend off any
hostile Skags or bandits.

At some point during this quest, you likely will have reached Level 5. Once at
Level 5, you earn your first Skill Point which is used to unlock your
character's Action Skill. From now on, every time you level up you earn one
Skill Point which are used to upgrade your Skill Trees and increase your
character's abilities and strengths. Use your Action Skill (LB) when in
battle; afterwards, it takes a short while to recharge.

Marcus' shop has opened up across the street from Dr. Zed's place. Proceed
inside and see what he has to offer (a Weapon Vendor and an Ammo Vendor).
Also open up all the lootable objects.

A word of the wise: try not to buy weapons from vendors too often; in fact,
it's recommended that you only rarely buy a weapon from Marcus. Due to how
frequently you can find weapon drops and how expensive Weapon Vendors are
(their prices are actually greatly inflated compared to the actual cost of the
weapon), buying weapons from vendors is a huge waste of money. Even though
some of these guns may look enticing, be patient and wait to find one in a
chest or dropped by an enemy.

However, purchasing ammo is totally fine in my book. Stock up on ammunition
for your preferred weapons and make sure to pick up a grenade pack (one pack
contains three grenades). You can throw grenades with the Right Bumper.

 - Grenade purchased: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

There will likely be some Bandit Killers and Bandit Thugs waiting for you
outside the main gate. Try out a grenade (aim a little bit in front of them
because grenades have a tendency to bounce and roll when thrown) and finish
them off before making your way back to T.K. Baha. For what it's worth, you
don't actually need to have any grenades in your inventory when you talk to
T.K., so you should be fine in case you used all three in your travels.

| Nine-Toes is in Skag Gully, but I barricaded the nearest entrane when the  |

| for my wife's grave. It so happens that I stashed one of her favorite guns |
| behind the grave marker. Use it to kill Nine-Toes. She would've wanted it  |
| that way.                                                                  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

This is your first real quest in Borderlands, so make sure to pick up one or
two Healing Kits and some ammo during your pit stop at Fyrestone: Nine-Toes is
one tough dude. Assuming you are at Fyrestone, you'll want to head south out
of the settlement and continue past the Skag den from "Skags at the Gate".

The road contains a number of Skag dens as it sways back and forth through the
badlands. Use your map if you ever get lost, and continue scrounging through
the multitude of Skag piles as you make your way to the barricade. There is a
New-U Station here at the barricade, but note that it missing a computer
terminal like the one at Fyrestone. These New-U Poles only act as save points
and do not allow you to access the character option screen.

Inspect the detonator to demolish the barricade and gain access into Skag
Gully.

 - Barricade destroyed: Objective Complete

Skag Gully is a completely new area from the Arid Badlands. When you inspect
the terminal at the tunnel entrance, a loading screen appears and you arrive
at the new area. It contains an entirely new map, so open it up to see where
you need to go next.

For now, ignore the northern section of Skag Gully and only follow the
waypoint south. At the entrance to the area you'll locate a Med Vendor and an
Ammo Vendor. Stock up if need be before heading down the trail. Note that you
can begin buying ammo capacity upgrades at the Ammo Vendor - they are somewhat
expensive, so only purchase for the weapons that you frequent the most.

Skag Gully is teeming with Skags, as to be expected. These foes are a bit
tougher than the ones at the Arid Badlands: expect to see many more Level 4
Skag Whelps aside from the regular Level 2 Pup Skags.

Continue past the first set of Skag dens after wiping out the local residents,
passing underneath the stone bridge towards some more dens. Wipe out the Skags
present before moving west towards a lone grave. This is the grave T.K. Baha
mentioned, and pressing X next to the tombstone loosens up the soft earth,
revealing the gun stash.

 - Gun stash found: Objective complete

You receive a gun based on your character class's gun preference as well as
Lady Finger, Mrs. Baha's prized possession (despite with T.K. said before, you
do not need to use this weapon to defeat Nine-Toes). Remember that since you
can only carry two guns at the time, compare these new findings with your old
guns in your inventory and swap out if you'd like.

Proceed up the hill past the grave to reach a metal gate. As you approach it,
the gate opens up and two Level 3 Mutant Midget Psychos storm out. I suggest
running around in circles a bit to get them disoriented in hopes that they
begin fighting the nearby Skags instead. Sit back and let them duke it out
before cleaning up the mess. Once the coast is clear, walk through the gate.

You have now entered Nine-Toes' hideout. There is another Med Vendor/Ammo
Vendor combo waiting for you at the entrance as well as a New-U Pole. Once
you are ready, go forward. A Level 4 Mutant Shotgunner is the first line of
defense - this nasty little dude has a shield and can be tough to take down.

Keep your distance and fire away at his thick dome (the Lady Finger is good
because it has a nice Weapon Zoom boost). If you have a Sniper Rifle, that is
just icing on the cake: try to stay on the other side of the bridge as you
snipe at the Bandit Thugs and other Midget Shotgunners.

Gun down the bandits and midgets before entering the building to find an ammo
crate and some lockers. The bridge at the other end of the building takes you
to Nine-Toes, so wait around and let your Action Skill recharge before going
across. Dropping down in the hole drops you in the middle of a makeshift
broadway stage... there's no escape now!

| Nine-Toes brings his two Skag pets along for the ride. Things are a lot    |
| tougher when it's three on one, so you might have an easier time if you    |
| eliminate Nine-Toes before focusing on Pinky and Digit. Sounds weird to    |
| prioritize like this, but keep in mind that Nine-Does has long-range       |
| firepower and can hit you from anywhere, so it's harder to kill the two    |
| Skags with Nine-Toes shooting at you from a distance.                      |
|                                                                            |
| The arena is pretty big, but doesn't offer a lot of cover. There are three |
| tall poles in the center which act as cover, and there is stadium-style    |
| seating surrounding the central pit that you can run across. For the most  |
| part stay in the middle so you have access to hiding spots.                |
|                                                                            |
| Nine-Toes is powerful, but in the end he is a regular human-based enemy.   |
| Lower his shield with a mid- to long-range gun while aiming at his head;   |
| the Lady Finger is a nice choice if you don't have anything better. Also   |
| utilize your Action Skill: they all come in handy depending on your        |
| character class: Roland's Scorpio Turret and Lilith's Phasewalk offer some |
| defensive output on the side. Overall, Nine-Toes shouldn't last long if    |
| you score several headshots in succession.                                 |
|                                                                            |
| Pinky and Digit fight like regular Skags but have armored plating that     |
| makes them tough to bring down. Since they will always be pursuing you,    |
| stick to a close-range weapon since it's hard to create separation. Or you |
| can try running around the outer perimeter and then firing as they chase   |
| after you. Just treat them like the Skags they are - you should be fine.   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Nine-Toes killed: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Nine-Toes always drops [THE CLIPPER], a Fire-based Repeater Pistol. This is
likely your first elemental weapon, so make sure to save a space for it in
your Storage Deck. Spend some time looting the room, including opening the
[SILVER CHEST] on the right side of the area and the [RED CHEST] at the back
of the stage.

Exit the hideout the same way you came in. Now before you haul ass back to
Fyrestone with the news, spend some time exploring the southern end of Skag
Gully a bit... you'll find some things here that are worth your while.

As you exit the hideout, stay on the upper trail and move northwest. You'll
fight through a whole mess of Pup Skags and Skag Whelps, but past them is the
stone bridge you passed underneath earlier.

Before you can reach the base of the bridge, a group of Level 4 Rakks and
Level 5 Bloated Rakks skyrocket into the air. Rakks are annoying foes because
they fly high up in the air before turning around and dive bombing you at
once. You'll want a long-range and/or rapid-fire weapon to combat against
these types of beasts. Shotguns are a big no-no when up against Rakks.

Cross the bridge to a big rock island containing several Skag dens. Once the
Pup Skags and Skag Whelps are out of the way, comb the area. In the corner is
a pair of dead bandits (ignore the computer doohickey on the ground next to
them), and across from them is a [RED CHEST] on the cliff ledge. If your
inventory is starting to get full, manage your Storage Deck by dropping any
unneeded junk (Y).

From here, you can drop off the edge to end up near the entrance. Return to
the Arid Badlands and rendezvous with T.K. Baha.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The bounty board is right outside Building 03, near where Claptrap is
standing. The bounty board is the place to look if you're itching for some
extra work (read: side missions). For this mission, all you have to do is
mosey on over to the bounty board and have a look.

 - Bounty Board checked: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Inspect the bounty board with X to turn in the mission. In addition to the
"Catch-A-Ride" storyline mission, the sidequest "T.K. Has More Work" is also
available. This section only covers the main story, but if you're interested
in the side missions you can head on over to Section 9.

If you have not stocked up on supplies after bringing down Nine-Toes, now is a
good time to do so. Leave Fyrestone and continue south; there is a garage that
you have passed by many a time and likely noticed by now. Simply walk over to
the Catch-A-Ride garage to complete the mission and activate the garage.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Pay attention to level requirements given out by missions. You should try to
be around the level mentioned (Level 10 in this case) before you take up a
mission. Since you are likely around Level 7, assuming you haven't been
grinding somewhere, you should tackle some side missions or just go out
hunting baddies before you challenge Bone Head (even though the side mission
"T.K. Has More Work" is also Level 10, it is easier to complete at your
current level than this quest).

Bone Head's headquarters is located directly north of Fyrestone. In fact, the
two locations are only separated by a wall at the northern end of town. It's
surprising how close the bandit camp is from the peaceful town.

Despite their proximity, you have to take the long way to reach Bone Head and
his troops: take the southern gate and then proceed north along the road.
Eventually you pass the bandit outpost from earlier, then head northeast to
reach the main gate.

You can also enter the area via an alternate route. As you exit Fyrestone,
travel along the road to the right of the bandit outpost. Hug the right wall
and you can spot a crack in the wall; squeeze down this narrow path and you
end up penetrating the camp from the southern end. I recommend this route.

| Bone Head is one powerful dude who wields a vicious SMG that can rip your  |
| HP bar to shreds. If you entered the camp via the southern entrance like I |
| suggested, you'll have access to the balcony on the other side of the main |
| gate. Here you have the height advantage over Bone Head as well as a low   |
| wall to hide behind.                                                       |
|                                                                            |
| Bone Head is accompanied by a few Level 10 Bandit Raiders and Burning      |
| Psychos, but you might want to focus on the big cheese himself; he is easy |
| to distinguish from his lackeys by his bone mask. Try to enter the area    |
| undetected so you can score the first hit - either aim for his head with a |
| powerful Sniper Rifle or shoot one of the elemental barrels littering the  |
| camp just as he walks by.                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| Bone Head and the Bandit Raiders keep their distance, allowing you to stay |
| behind the wall on the balcony and occasionally peek over the edge to take |
| a couple shots. Only the Burning Psychos run to your location, so you will |
| have to slay any that run up on the balcony with you. Otherwise, take your |
| time and allow your shields to recharge if they get too low.               |
|                                                                            |
| Employ a patient gameplan if you feel yourself getting overwhelmed and do  |
| not worry if Bone Head's shield keeps recharging: it's pretty easy to      |
| drain if you score headshots and even easier with a Shock weapon. And of   |
| course, your Action Skill always comes in handy.                           |

 - Bone Head killed: Objective Complete

Finish off the remaining bandits and look around for loot: there is an ammo
crate underneath the balcony at the main gate and some various objects inside
the three shacks. Also make sure to pick up the [BONE SHREDDER] weapon that
Bone Head dropped. Open the [SILVER CHEST] at the northeast end of the camp to
receive a whole lotta moolah and with the [DIGISTRUCT MODULE].

 - Digistruct Module: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Use the northeast gate and jump on the stack of boxes to reach the roof of the
nearby shack. From here, you can climb up onto a metal catwalk that provides a
nice view of both Fyrestone and Bone Head's camp. Drop down on the Fyrestone
side for easy access back into the town, then continue to the Catch-A-Ride
garage to turn in the mission.

| Y'all got one last hurdle to escape Fyrestone. Sledge's bandits put up a   |
| gate across the main road. The controls are on the far side. To reach them |
| controls, ya need get yourself a Runner from that there Catch-A-Ride, then |
| drive up the ramp and jump the gully we call "Piss Wash". Once you're      |
| over, attack 'em from behind and open that gate!                           |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Now that the Catch-A-Ride garage is in use again, you can spawn vehicles to
drive through Pandora with. It is a lot faster than walking and allows you to
easily take down enemies.

After turning in the mission, press X on the computer screen to open the 
Catch-A-Ride menu. From here you can choose to spawn a Runner (and even choose
its paint color. Go Flamingo!). Rocket Launcher Runners are much better than
Machine Gun Runners, so spawn one of those.

 - Runner driven: Objective Complete

The vehicle controls pop up onscreen, so scan over 'em and drive off. Follow
the road towards Bone Head's camp and make a left. As you go west, you can see
the bandit gate that Scooter was referring to. From here, drive south towards
the area where you found T.K.'s stolen food. The giant ramp you saw before is
the ramp leaning over the Piss Wash Gully. Back up and line yourself up with
the ramp, then drive forward and hit the boost (LB) to rocket up the ramp and
across the gully.

 - Piss Wash jumped: Objective Complete

Now you're at a whole new section of the Arid Badlands! North of the gully is
a New-U Pole and a Med Vendor, but for now ride along the road to reach the
other side of the gate. There are a number of bandits guarding the gate, but
they are no match considering that you can simply run them over without fear.
The gate switch is located on the gate, so approach it and flip the switch.

 - Gate switch found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Inspect the gate switch to turn in the mission and open it up. Now that the
gate is open, you can make your way from Fyrestone to the central sector of
Arid Badlands without having to repeatedly jump the Piss Wash Gully.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The trip back to Fyrestone is a helluva lot easier now that the main road is
open: hop back in your Runner and drive through the gate, which brings you
back to the field leading to the bandit outpost and Bone Head's camp. Return
to Fyrestone and deliver the good news to Zed.

Spawn a Runner at the local Catch-A-Ride station and drive over to the bandit
gate. Now that it's open, you have easy access to the western portion of the
Arid Badlands without having to jump the Piss Wash Gully each time. Drive west
through the gate, running over any bandits or Skags that run onto the road,
and park your car near the outpost in the northwest corner.

There is a walkway leading up to a drainage ditch that takes you to the Arid
Hills. We'll be going there in just a second. But first, walk past the Catch-
A-Ride station and into the small hangar. Next to the Med Vendor here is Shep,
the guy you're lookin' for.

| You want to kick Sledge out of Headstone Mine, huh? Good for you. I think  |
| you're crazy, but I'll give you a hand. You need the key. Last I checked,  |
| there was one down in the Zephyr Substation office. Of course, the bandits |
| aren't going to make it easy for you.                                      |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

In addition to this current mission, Sledge also offers two side missions that
you should agree to. Follow the road south past the Piss Wash Gully to reach
the Zephyr Substation. This large area is filled with many wind turbines and
the main building is at the southern end, flanked by many bandit huts.

There are a lot of bandits present in this area, with most in the Level 9-10
range. Most of them are enemies you have previously faced (Bandit Thugs,
Bandit Killers), but there are a few other baddies that you have not yet seen
before.

Bandit Raiders look similar to other bandits, but are statistically tougher
than Thugs and Killers. Psychos are basically identical to Burning Psychos
except they are not on fire, removing their Fire elemental properties. As for
the one or two Bruisers you may encounter, these roided-up fiends are very
slow but carry powerful Combat Rifles.

It is not recommended that you storm into the Zephyr Substation with your
vehicle with the intent of running everyone over. It won't work and the end
result will likely be your death (or at the very least, your Runner getting
blown up). Take a stealth approach by finding high cover - there is a boulder
on the western end with a staircase that takes you up to the top, providing
you with a good sniper post. Take advantage of the elemental barrels and the
large flammable Jakobs gas tanks on the roof of the main building.

Once you have wiped out the bandit threat, it is now safe to go inside the
building. There is no mine key inside, but rather a poorly-written note signed
by Sledge. Pick it up to complete the mission

 - Mine Gate Key: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Before you leave, search the area heavily. Pick up any and all loot dropped by
the bandits and rummage through the lockers inside the building. If you go out
the western door and jump on the scaffolding on the side, you can reach the
[RED CHEST] on the roof.

Complete most, if not all of the available Arid Badland side missions before
starting this mission. You should be in the ballpark of Level 17 when you
start this one, even though the mission level suggests otherwise.

Your journey to Sledge's Safe House begins at the Arid Hills. The gate leading
to this area is located north of Shep Sanders at the crossroads. Drive over
there, then disembark and inspect the terminal to enter the area. The Arid
Hills strongly resembles the Arid Badlands and you'll be finding many of the
same enemies here as you did there, but their levels will be higher.

There are a couple vendors near the entrance to get you started. Proceed
through one of the two drain pipes and take down the Skags near the watering
hole/sewage runoff. You will encounter several Badass Skags, so feel free to
double back to the Med Vendor after the fight. Most of the baddies here are
in the Level 11-14 range.

To reach the top of the hill, either follow the trail or jump across the
sheet metal platforms jutting from the side of the cliff. Carefully proceed
around the corner towards a small outpost. Just around the bend you'll be able
to spot a bandit lookout post, so use a Sniper Rifle to shoot the two enemies
off the perch. Wipe out the other bandits near the building and loot the Skag
piles and dumpsters.

Up ahead is another miniature camp site. Aside from your standard bandits and
Psychos, the camp is home to a Badass Raider. This guy has increased health
and heavy armor, forcing you to achieve headshots.

Once you've cleared the place, go north towards the New-U Pole and the base of
the hills. This sector is home to a couple side missions that you are welcome 
to start if you picked them up from the Fyrestone bounty board. It is a good
idea to explore even if you are interested in the goal ahead (combing the area
practically forces you to complete "The Legend of Moe and Marley", anyways). 

It's best to start at the southern end and work your way north via the zig-
zagging paths. The Arid Hills is a Skag hotspot, so you'll be fighting a
boatload of these creatures as you scour the landscape. You can find a lot of
loot in the form of Skag piles, but the only real noteworthy place is the tiny
bandit camp at the north; it contains a [RED CHEST].

Once you are done in that portion, you can continue north into heavy bandit
territory. The main camp is at the northern point and is also where you will
find the entrance to Sledge's Safe House. Snipe the lookouts and walk over to
the front of the camp.

The place is crawling with bandits, so you may want to stay crouched near the
main gate and snipe as many guys as possible. Next, proceed up the hill on the
right to reach the catwalks, where you'll find a few more bandits. Use the
elemental barrels to your advantage and peek your head in the buildings for
various loot. The path is a lot clearer up north towards Sledge's Safe House.

Before you actually go inside the safe house, walk on top of the bunker to
find a [RED CHEST] in between some lock boxes. 

You will probably be craving the Med and Ammo Vendors in the safe house so you
can clear out your inventory and restock supplies. Sledge's Safe House is a
pretty big area filled primarily with narrow hallways and tight spaces. There
is still cover to aid you, but it's not the same luxury as fighting in wide
open areas like before.

As you go north, you'll encounter some bandit enemies: a Bruiser, Midget
Shotgunner, and one or two Bandit Killers. The foes in here peak at around
Level 15 or so; by my accounts you should be around Level 17 or 18 so these
guys shouldn't pose much of a threat.

Your map shows a path on the east part of the hallway, but the door leading
here is closed for the time being. Continue north and follow the hallway west
into a dining area. There are a few elemental barrels that can be deadly if
one is accidentally set off, so shoot them from a fair distance to create a
chain reaction.

Head into the next room, where you find corpses hanging from the ceiling.
That's homely. Try to kill all the enemies on the ground level before trying
to proceed up the ramp on the side of the room. A Badass Bruiser waits at the
top of the ramp and can rip you to shreds: try to get him to come out onto the
ramp and periodically shoot at him while ducking under the shelter on your
right.

Ascend to the second level and you may begin to hear helpless moans of a
Claptrap. Even though his cries are getting louder, you are still a little
ways away from encountering him. Defeat the Psycho and Bandit Thugs past the
New-U Pole and proceed down the stairs into the basement.

Entering the basement likely sets off a few enemies, so clear the hallway of
bandits and midgets. At the fork, go to the right to find a [RED CHEST] and
the distressed Claptrap. Talk to him to receive the "Claptrap Rescue: Safe
House" mission. I recommend that you complete it before you move on, since it
involves some backtracking and the rewards are worth it.

Regardless of whether you listened to me or not, take a left at the fork to
enter a big hangar. As soon as you enter, you are flocked with Mutant Psycho
Midgets and Midget Shotgunners. After they fall, the hangar door opens to
reveal some basic bandit enemies. Before you exit the hangar through the door,
drop down in the hole to enter a small vault containing an ammo crate.

Hang a left and grab the ammunition before following the large neon sign down
the stairs. Ignore the copious amounts of blood spatter and the second neon
arrow, opting to go left instead. Open up the ammo crates, the row of lockers,
and the [RED CHEST] behind the counter.

Follow the neon arrow into the next room. You can either stay on the ground
or head up the stairs and cross the metal catwalk. I suggest taking the upper
route so you can shoot at the Mutant Psycho Midgets that are running around on
the lower level. Plus, if you jump on the mesh floor from the catwalk, you can
reach another [RED CHEST] on the upper platform near the generator things.

You will end up in a garage regardless of which path you took. A Burning
Psycho and a Bandit Thug are the only bad guys inside, so dispose of them
quickly. If you are in need of ammo, search the garage and the other possible
route for ammo crates.

The final room in Sledge's Safe House is up ahead, and surprise surprise...
there is a boss waiting for you. Even though it seems like a trek, running 
back to the vendors at the safe house entrance isn't such a bad idea now that
all the enemies are gone; more will likely respawn, but not at the same
capacity.

Once you enter the giant circular arena, there is no turning back... well
actually you can jump back up to the garage with some careful and well-timed
jumps, but for the sake of the storyline you are stuck here until you defeat
the boss and get the Mine Key.

|                                                                            |

|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Well, the Roid Rage Psycho certainly looks the part: he is a hulking mass  |
| of muscle and pent-up anger. For a guy his size, he is also pretty mobile. |
| His close-up attacks include basic punches and hooks, as well as a         |
| shockwave slam attack that can shoot you across the arena like a missile.  |
|                                                                            |
| However, those moves don't even come close to his long-range grenade       |
| attack. In fact, the Roid Rage Psycho uses MIRV Grenades. For those who    |
| are unfamiliar: MIRV Grenades is a Grenade Mod that causes the grenade to  |
| release several miniature grenades when detonated (there's an Inception    |
| joke in there somewhere). If you are caught in the brunt of the blasts,    |
| then you are going to be in a world of hurt.                               |
|                                                                            |
| Based on this information, it's best not to get too far away from the boss |
| and force him to chuck grenades at you. If he does throw one, the best     |
| advice is to run towards the boss and past him to avoid most of the blast. |
|                                                                            |
| An army of Mutant Psycho Midgets join the fray as soon as the boss battle  |
| begins. They will likely be fodder and minor annoyances, but it's best to  |
| keep a few around in case you are on your last legs and need your Second   |
| Wind. But for the majority: smoke 'em.                                     |
|                                                                            |
| Even though the Roid Rage Psycho is wearing a helmet, still aim at his     |
| head for critical hits. Elemental weapons work nicely here, as does your   |
| Action Skill.                                                              |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

With the big guy down for the count, flip the switch hanging from the chain in
the middle of the room. This uncovers the [MINE GATE KEY], free for the
taking!

 - Mine Gate Key: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Now you must backtrack through Sledge's Safe House. Now that you have the key,
a shortcut has opened up at the west end of the hangar that takes you directly
to the entrance. Same goes for the Arid Hills (though no shortcut). The
enemies have all respawned by now, but they should be easy XP, given your
current level.

The mission is turned in at the entrance to Headstone Mine. To get there, hop
in a vehicle and drive past the Zephyr Substation, heading west. From the Lost
Cave, go south past the bandit house and follow the road west to another
Catch-A-Ride Station. Loot all the lockers and ammo crates inside the station
and walk over to the mine gate near the New-U Pole.

Heed the Guardian Angel's warning in that Sledge is a challenge unlike any
other you have faced before. Bring your A-Game. If you are really craving for
more XP, then you can complete the two new Arid Badlands side missions that
become available when you turn this mission in.

| on back to Zed and let him know what happened.                             |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Once inside Headstone Mine, dash into the house to find an Ammo Vendor and a
Med Vendor - standard for all areas. Creep down the trail towards the mill and
begin the assault on the surrounding bandits. Again, nothing more than your
run-of-the-mill Bandit Thugs and Bandit Killers; a few Bandit Raiders and
Bruisers here and there. The Bruisers are at Level 18 but most of the other
foes are only at Level 16.

Inside the mill, rummage through the row of lockers against the wall and exit
the south end of the mill to ambush the bandits near the gate. There is
another mill north of the first one, which contains another long line of
lockers, an ammo crate, and a [SILVER CHEST].

The gate is closed for the moment, so instead proceed up the stairs and flip
the switch to open 'er up. Still, stay on the upper level of the mine and
snipe the Mutant Psycho Midgets down on the ground past the gate. Go west into
the building to find a whole lotta lockers and another [SILVER CHEST].

From here, you can snipe many of the enemies in the excavation site through
the window; you can also head west into the second building and get a few more
guys (make sure to open the [RED CHEST] against the back wall). Once most of
the bandits are killed, you can walk down the stairs into the square. A few
Psychos and Midgets emerge from of the huts once your feet hit the ground.

The one target that you need to watch out for is a mounted turret, a Level 17
Mulciber Mk2, which lies at the south end of the excavation site. The bandit
turret fires at a high rate and can do a lot of damage if you're out in the
open.

From the start, you should hide immediately and equip a Sniper Rifle or any
weapon with at least a 1.0x Weapon Zoom as you slowly inch forward from cover
to cover. Once in range, you can begin shooting, but you'll need to switch
between vantage points since the turret rarely stops to reload.

However, your best option is to use your character class's Action Skill. It
comes in handy regardless of your class (though Mordecai probably has it the
worst): Lilith or Brick can sprint up to the turret and pummel it from close
range, while Roland can use his Scorpio Turret as a helping hand.

When the Mulciber Mk2 is destroyed (or you managed to snipe the Bandit Thug
off the turret), search the area for loot (there are a lot of ammo crates in
the excavation site) and proceed up the stairs past the turret.

The gigantic building in front of you is Sledge's hideout, but you'll have to
loop around since it's only accessible from the south side. Follow the mine
cart tracks east to find a Bruiser and a couple Midget Shotgunners. The mill
near the bulldozer contains a [RED CHEST]; head to the opposite end of the
clearing to the other mill. Here you can walk out the other side onto a cart
track. If you follow the track back towards the excavation site, you will come
to a dead end and a [SILVER CHEST] at the end.

Facing Sledge's hideout, follow the tracks west this time into a cavern. Blow
past the bandits inside and spill out into a barren area. Pass by the New-U
Pole and take cover when fighting the Bandit Raiders and Midget Shotgunners,
then proceed towards the metal gate. It opens, revealing a second excavation
site.

Get started by gunning down all of the enemies present. You can either follow
the trail through the excavation site, using the various objects as cover, or
you can hide out in the central building and snipe the bandits, Midgets, and
Psychos from the comfort of the shelter.

From here, I would advise that you get on the raised mine cart track when you
begin to move northeast towards Sledge's hideout. Even though you stick out
like a sore thumb running along an elevated platform with no cover, at least
you have the height advantage when shooting at the bandits below.

Once you make it closer to the south end of Sledge's hideout, enter the mill
at the end of the path. Open the [RED CHEST], then ride the elevator up to
the boss's lair. Sell all your junk, stock up on ammo, then purchase some
Light Healing Kits at the two vendors. Sledge is waiting for you at the end
of the walkway, so make sure you are prepared for the fight ahead.

| Sledge, the meathead that is ruling over the Arid Badlands with an iron    |
| fist, is finally within reach. This boss is very powerful, is covered head |
| to toe in armor, and fights just like a Bruiser. Like any human enemy, you |
| must aim for the head for critical hits; this is easy due to his enlarged  |
| helmet and slow body movement.                                             |
|                                                                            |
| What Sledge has going for him is his incredibly deadly weapons: he wields  |
| a booming Shotgun that, like any Shotgun, lowers in accuracy the farther   |
| you get away, and a hammer that is used to create close-range shockwaves.  |
| What Sledge has against him is that these two weapons aren't very useful   |
| when far away. With that information in hand, one can deduce that the best |
| survival solution is to stay the hell away from Sledge.                    |
|                                                                            |
| The room where you fight Sledge is deceptively large. You may get stuck    |
| here and there due to the narrow corridors and random dead ends, but it is |
| a very large room and incredibly easy to keep away from the boss while you |
| whittle away his HP bar.                                                   |
|                                                                            |
| Sledge starts off with a hefty shield, so use any Shock-based weapon that  |
| you may have in order to drain it in a hurry. If you do not possess one,   |
| then any other powerful mid- to long-range weapon will do. Just be warned  |
| that Sledge's shield has a high recharge rate and may recharge several     |
| times during the fight.                                                    |
|                                                                            |
| Keep an eye out for Bandit Thugs and Psychos that enter the room from the  |
| two sides. They can be a pain, but can also greatly aid you if you become  |
| crippled.                                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| Sledge may possess colossal strength, but you can literally run circles    |
| around him due to his sluggish speed and the size of the room. Run to the  |
| opposite end of the room (or even open the entrance and step out onto the  |
| bridge) if you need to heal yourself with a Healing Kit, then jump back in |
| the fray when ready.                                                       |

 - Sledge killed: Objective Complete

Sledge drops a ton of loot, including his signature gun: [SLEDGE'S SHOTGUN].
It is truly an interesting weapon - despite its whopping 0.0% Accuracy, it has
increased Melee Damage, increased overall Damage, and fires is two-shot
magazine at once, automatic style. It's ridiculously powerful, but you
practically have to be spooning your target in order to score a decent hit.

Approach the window and loot the lockers, then crack open the [SILVER CHEST]
to find the [ERIDIAN ARTIFACT] among several wads of cash. Dolla bills!

 - Eridian Artifact: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

A side door opens in the hideout, providing you a quick getaway. From here,
drop down into the clearing and walk onto the mine track overlooking the first
excavation site. Fall down on the other side and run back to the entrance to
the mine, where you can sell all your stuff and get back to the Arid Badlands.

During the trip, you receive a transmission from Commandant Steele, the leader
of the Atlas Corporation's personal militia. As head of the Crimson Lance, she
demands that you fork over the Eridian Artifact at once. She's a bad guy, so
just ignore her empty threats.

After talking to Dr. Zed, you get your XP, cash, and a Class Mod. One Class
Mod can be equipped at a time to your character and alters your character
class. Class Mods differ in the fact that they help boost certain skills on
your Skill Trees and also give you other stat increases. Class Mods can only
be used for certain characters, but the one you get for beating Sledge is
always associated with your character class.

Even though you can hightail it outta the Badlands with this last mission,
there is one final batch of side missions that can be picked up at the bounty
board. I recommend that you complete the small set before you move on to the
Dahl Headlands.

Well, this is an easy one. Once you have wrapped up any and all loose ends,
feel free to begin this quest. Hop in a Runner and begin driving west down the
main road past Zephyr Substation and Titan's End. Once you reach the gate, get
out and talk to the green Claptrap to have him grant you access.

 - Claptrap talked to: Objective Complete

Jump back in your vehicle and press X at the terminal to enter the Dahl
Headlands. The Dahl Headlands is the second of the four main regions on
Pandora, though it is by leaps and bounds the smallest in terms of missions.

Drive up the path to the Catch-A-Ride Station; Ernest Whitting is at the top
of the hill.

 - Ernest found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Make a stop at the Med and Ammo Vendors if need be, then have a chat with
Ernest to turn the mission in. As a bonus, you should unlock the "Made in
Fyrestone" Achievement if you 100% completed the Arid Badlands (that includes
any and all side missions). Your Dahl Headlands adventures begin...

| You showed up just at the right time! Bandits decided to lay siege to the  |
| Last Chance Waterin' Hole to the south, and my friend Lucky is trapped     |
| inside! He called me for help just before you showed up. I wasn't sure     |
| what to do, but you're here now. Please, go help my friend!                |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

As you look at the map and get acclimated with the new area, you'll come to
realize that the Dahl Headlands is mainly composed of a humongous wasteland
spanning most of the map. There is also a race track on the southwest end that
we'll be visiting later, and the trail to New Haven at the southeast end (you
won't have to worry about that for a while).

You'll be spending most of your stay in the barren plain. Your Runner will be
your most useful tool in the Dahl Headlands due to the sheer size of the plain
and travelling on foot is incredibly tedious and dangerous. Vehicle combat is
prevalent in the Dahl Headlands, with many bandit Out Riders cruising through
the plain.

To access the plain from the northeast corner of the map, you can either
drive through the open gate at the base of the hill or drive up the hill near
Ernest Whitting and boost off the jump. Don't explore too much and make a
beeline for Lucky's Last Chance Watering Hole at the east end.

Park your trusty ride at the north end of the Watering Hole. In order to get
the attention of the bandits personally guarding Lucky's cell, you must wipe
out 15 of their clan members. Now there are going to be more than 15 bandit
enemies present, but 15 is all you need for the mission's first objective.

You'll be fighting against all bandit types found under the sun: Thugs,
Killers, Raiders, Bruisers, Psychos, and Midget Shotgunners. Wait around near
your car at the northern and mow down folks that appear in the building; many
appear out of the door at the top of the building, while others emerge from
the front door. The front porch is littered with elemental barrels to aid you
in your massacre.

Once most of the enemies die down in that area, run over to the building and
take cover on the porch or inside. Fight the bandits near the gate near the
southern end until you have reached your death total requirement.

 - Bandits killed: 15/15

Search the dead bodies for loot and open the [RED CHEST] on the western
perimeter wall. An explosion bellows through the Watering Hole as you approach
the gate. A Level 19 Badass Psycho, flanked by Burning Psychos and Mutant
Psycho Midgets, charge you from their dilapidated holding cells. Back up and 
begin gunning them down until they all fall.

Open the [SILVER CHEST] up against the gate for some weapons and collect the
ammo from the crate on the opposite side. Walk towards the building and
immediately back away as the front door opens on its own. A Level 19 Badass
Bruiser struts out of the building with his huge Rocket Launcher. Immediately
take cover behind the shipping containers and play a game of cat and mouse as
you walk circles around the containers and keep the Bruiser at bay.

There is a Med, Ammo, and Weapon Vendor all inside Lucky's store. Open the
cell door to free Lucky (who doesn't actually leave) and talk to him to begin
a mission chain.

 - Lucky rescued: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

| I wanna to get back to Ernest, but I can't face another bandit. Fast       |
| Travel would be okay, but it's been offline around here for ages. Mad Mel  |
| blocks Scooter from coming to fix it. If Fast Travel were working, we      |
| could instantly teleport to any New-U station we've ever visited, even the |
| one next to Ernest's Emporium. Will you fix it please? You just gotta      |
| climb the poles and throw the breakers, then hit the master switch over at |
| the station. Easy, right?                                                  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Now this is an awesome mission. Not the mission itself, but the reward for
completing Lucky's request is a huge luxury. Exit the store through the back
door to arrive at Lucky's bounty board (which is currently offline) and a
New-U Station.

Use the Catch-A-Ride garage to spawn a Runner and drive south towards the main
power line; it's marked on your map and radar. Leap onto the boulder, then
onto the platforms attached to the power line. Once you can go no higher,
turn and face the breaker and flip it.

Soon after, Scythids crawl out of the ground and fly towards your location.
These nasty bugs typically wiggled on the floor, but can fly for a short
period of time in order to climb objects or cover ground. You will be fighting
Level 18 Desert Scythids and Bursting Scythids; the latter of which explode in
a ring of fire when killed. They may be a new face, but don't be intimidated:
Scythids are generally very weak creatures.

Hop back into your car and drive south a little ways to the next power line.
Just like before, you'll need to scale the side of the power line in order to
reach the breaker. This one is a tad higher up than the first one.

 - Breakers thrown: 2/2

More Scythids appear (including miniature Scythid Crawlers and some Giant
Scythids), as well as one or two Out Riders. Immediately jump in your Runner
and take on the Out Riders before they run you over or blow you to bits. Once
the carnage has subsided you can drive over to the master switch at the Dahl
Headland Electrical Station.

Park at the New-U Pole and slowly creep into the electrical station. Like most
places in Pandora, the station is overrun by bandit scum. There are some
Bandit Thugs on the upper rails that shoot down at you, but most of the foes
you fight on the floor are various Psychos. Watch out for the Bruiser/Badass
Bruiser duo that show up at the far end of the electrical station!

Lastly, climb the stairs to the top level to find the master switch.

 - Master switch flipped: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

The Fast Travel Network is now online! To use Fast Travel, approach any New-U
Station terminal (it must be a New-U Station, not a New-U Pole) and select the
Fast Travel tab with LB and RB. The Fast Travel allows you to teleport between
any New-U Station you have previously visited. It's a huge time saver,
especially if you recently found out that you still have unfinished business
in the Arid Badlands or forgot to turn in a side mission at the bounty board.

Before you get too excited, descend the stairs and confront the Badass Psycho
and the other bandits that swarm the entrance. Drive back to Lucky's Last
Chance Watering Hole and give Lucky the news.

Side missions become available at Lucky's bounty board: the Dahl Headlands
only offers six side missions, so the final five are now available for taking
(the first, "Big Game Hunter", is given to you by Ernest Whitting).

| - Eliminate Bandit Runner Patrols                                          |
|                                                                            |
| Mad Mel has blocked the road to New Haven, and he spends most of his time  |
| terrorizing the southern part of the Headland. He hardly ever comes up     |
| here. If you want him to face you, you'll need to get his attention first. |
| What says "I'm going to kick your ass" better than killing a bunch of his  |
| men and destroying a lot of his hardware?                                  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

It is time to get Mad Mel's attention and make a statement. In order to send a
message to the tyrant, you must obliterate eight runner patrols: this includes
both Out Riders and Mad Mel Patrols. At Level 18, Out Riders are weaker and
therefore easier to destroy than the Level 19 Mad Mel Patrols.

They ride all throughout the Dahl Headlands and spawn pretty frequently, so
finding them should not be an issue. However, the waypoint specifically points
to a patrol spawn point near the mountain in the middle of the headlands. This
isn't the only place where the enemy vehicles spawn, but it is probably the
most frequent spawn location.

If you are using a Rocket Launcher Runner (which, face it, you should be at
all times), you have the ability to damage the runner patrols with a machine
gun (RT) and rockets (LT). Just note that you will have to lead your targets
with the rockets in order to score a direct hit since they almost never stay
still.

Try to pinpoint the locations of the Catch-A-Ride garages and stay in close
proximity to one so you can respawn a new vehicle if your current ride is
almost totaled. It isn't uncommon to go by without noticing the wear and tear
on your Runner, and you most definitely don't want one getting blown up in the
middle of the plains with you in it. The explosion alone is enough to almost
kill you.

 - Runner Patrols destroyed: 8/8
 - TURN IN!

Drive back to Lucky Zaford once you have killed eight runner patrols. There
are always going to be bandit vehicles roaming around even after this mission
is complete, however.

The next story mission is the final one for the Dahl Headlands (yeah, I know,
that was quick). So before you face off against Mad Mel, make sure to wrap up
the six available side missions to get a lot of loot and XP. You'll need every
bit of help you can get for the fight against Mad Mel!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

If you have been following the guide up to this point, you should've completed
all available side missions in the Dahl Headlands. Now your final task is
disposing of Mad Mel and gaining entrance to New Haven.

Make sure you have enough ammo and equipment, then hop in a Runner and drive
past the Dahl Headland Electrical Station. With your Runner, drive over the
ramp and into the dome of death. When you try and leave through the other
side, the gate slams shut and a few Out Riders waltz in.

Focus on one at a time with your (preferably) Rocket Launcher Runner. Once the
wave of Out Riders are toast, Mad Mel and and some more join the party.

| The boss fight against Mad Mel fits the theme of the Dahl Headlands in     |
| that it is essentially a vehicular battle. However, it's almost guaranteed |
| that your vehicle will suffer intense damage and likely blow up during the |
| course of the fight. The general consensus seems to be that fighting the   |
| boss is much easier with your Runner, but I found the fight to be much     |
| simpler when on foot and using regular guns.                               |
|                                                                            |
| Alongside Mad Mel are two more Out Riders and various Psychos that run     |
| around the domed area. These enemies are great for Second Winds in case    |
| your Runner explodes and you go with it.                                   |
|                                                                            |
| Mad Mel drives a suped-up Runner complete with a spiked plow attachment in |
| the front and a huge cannon turret on the top. The vehicle seems to be a   |
| Rocket Launcher Runner since he has the ability to use both machine guns   |
| and rockets. These rockets are incredibly powerful and can take down your  |
| own ride in about three direct hits. Always stay moving and try to follow  |
| Mad Mel as he does donuts around the ring.                                 |
|                                                                            |
| If your car is about to tank (flaming heavily, under 100 health), then get |
| out of the Runner and sprint away from it before it explodes and takes you |
| down with it. This isn't the kiss of death, since you can still use your   |
| most powerful weapons (which tend to deal more damage per hit than both    |
| Runner types).                                                             |
|                                                                            |
| If you do die, you'll respawn at the New-U Pole at the entrance to the     |
| dome. You can fight a noble fight and return with a Runner, or you can     |
| walk up to the ramp and shoot at Mad Mel without ever entering the dome.   |
| I don't think I have ever beaten Mad Mel with my first Runner still in     |
| tact.                                                                      |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Mad Mel killed: Objective Complete

Get in a vehicle and drive through the dome to reach an intersection. You want
to go southeast to New Haven. Confront the Claptrap in front of the large gate
and inform him of Mad Mel's timely death.

 - Claptrap talked to: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Enter New Haven. If you want to stop at some nearby vendors, then hoof it
towards the upper walkway. Otherwise, hop in a Runner at the Catch-A-Ride
Station here and drive northeast to the city. You can hand in the mission at
Helena Pierce's office: she is the administrator of New Haven and her office
is found directly east of the western town gate, near Scooter's garage.

You also receive the Weapon Equip Slot SDU, which means you can now equip four
guns at a time!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

This is a good introductory mission for New Haven because it forces you to
explore the majority of the city in search for various electrical generators.
Out of the five generators, the first is very close to your current location.
Exit Helena Pierce's office and walk back west towards Scooter's garage. The
mobile generator is found right behind the Catch-A-Ride Station.

 - Scooter's power on: Objective Complete

Quick detour. Facing the garage, walk onto the front porch of the building to
your left and jump onto the red cloth awning. From here, you can reach a
[SILVER CHEST] on the building's roof. Now head west as if you were leaving
New Haven back towards the Dahl Headlands. The generator powering the west
gate is on the side of the road.

 - West Gate power on: Objective Complete

Back in town, stroll north down the main street and enter the alley just
before Marcus Kincaid's shop. The third generator is down here, behind a
washing machine. Marcus' store is the place to be for all your weapon needs,
and just behind the store is the hospital, where you can access a Med Vendor
out front.

Across the street from Marcus Kincaid's shop is a regular-looking building,
but every so often a panel opens up to reveal another Weapon Vendor. This
vendor offers rarer and more powerful weapons than your standard vendor.

 - Tenement power on: Objective Complete

The next generator is found on a rooftop, so the waypoint is a little bit
misleading. Return to the west gate and walk north while facing the New-U
Station. Go up the stairs on the side of the nearest building to access the
generator.

 - Rooftop power on: Objective Complete

The north gate generator, needless to say, is north of here. It is stationed
right next to the sealed gate (which opens when you switch on the generator).

 - North Gate power on: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

With that, return to Helena to receive your reward. New Haven is home to a
smorgasbord of side missions, many of which you can begin immediately after
killing Mad Mel. Scooter offers some quests, as does the New Haven bounty
board. In addition, talk to Marcus Kincaid for some jobs after you have
successfully completed this one. You have an easier chance of completing many
of these after finishing the following story mission, "Seek Out Tannis".

|____________________________________________________________________________|

New Haven is a large place. The city itself ain't that big, but it is
encompassed by a massive junkyard that contains multiple enemy types. You will
soon discover this on your trek to the eastern gate. Dispose of the bandits on
the southern end, then check out the south side of the junkyard: it's mainly
just Scythids, but there is a [SILVER CHEST] underneath a green tent.

The northern junkyard is much bigger and has a bit more secrets, but we'll be
checking that out during some of the side missions to come. As for now, talk
to the Claptrap at the gate to enter the Rust Commons West.

 - Claptrap talked to: Objective Complete

The Rust Commons is HUGE. So huge that it is split into two separate areas:
Rust Commons West and Rust Commons East. It isn't as flat and barren as the
Dahl Headlands and even though it is just as big, there are some portions
where vehicles are not allowed.

The transition to Tannis' dig site is at the northeast end. From the entrance
(aptly named the Cesspool), take a left at the fork ahead and walk through the
human-sized gate. Level 20 Spiderantlings pop out of the ground and rush
towards you. Spiderants are exactly what they sound like: a cross between a
spider and an ant. These four-legged creatures live underground and are very
fast; they also travel in packs and can easily surround you. Spiderantlings
are the baby versions and can be slain without a problem.

You'll come to a large drainage ditch. The Cesspool arena is the tiny building
on your right. Wade through the icky liquid to the north, where you'll find
more Spiderant variations: Gyros and Workers. For Spiderants, make sure to aim 
at their backside - the abdomen - for critical hits. Most of the baddies in 
the Rust Commons West are around Level 21. There are also some Bloated Rakks
and Rakks flying nearby.

Proceed north through the sewage towards a sewage treatment plant. The place
is filled with bandits (including a Badass Raider), so be careful and scope
the place out. There are a number of ammo crates near the right side of the
plant, and climbing the stairs to the top leads you to a [RED CHEST].

Pass by the plant and proceed north through the sewage. As you can see, there
is an abundance of elemental barrels lying around the Rust Common due to the
runoff, so you can use these during fights.

The northern end of the Rust Commons West is the Upper Seeps: a large plain,
identical in appearance to the Dahl Headlands. Even though there are a lot of
Skag piles on the ground, you won't be finding any Skags - this is strictly
Spiderant territory. Gyros can roll up into a ball and barrel after you.
Soldiers can shoot webbing at you. Kings and Queens are both much larger
than their servants and more powerful. Some of the enemies here have a higher
level cap (Level 24-25).

If you go all the way to the west, you'll find a gate leading to the Dahl 
Headlands. Remember the fork past Mad Mel's dome? We went southeast to reach 
New Haven, but the northeast path takes you directly to the Rust Commons West.
Pick up a Runner at the garage here so you can better traverse the Upper
Seeps.

 .-------------------------------.
 | Easter Egg: Developer's Chest |
 '-------------------------------'
 - There is a super-secret hidden chest known only as the "Developer's Chest"
   (thanks to the Borderlands Wiki for pointing this out). It looks like a
   regular Red Chest, but apparently it offers a better class of loot than the
   normal ones. The chest is located at the northwest end of the Rust Commons
   West. Pay attention to the towers lining the northern cliff for reference.
   
   Get a Runner and drive to the northwest end. You see the small rectangular
   outcropping on the map in the northwest corner? Yeah, look for that. When
   driving, you will want to be to the left of the western tower, so drive to
   the left of it and up onto the rocks.
   
   You will be off the map if you go north and you should get an automated
   warning by the turrets on the towers, but continue anyways and you should
   find the chest under a rock overhang. As you climb down the rocks, make
   sure to stay to the right because sometimes you may die from being off the
   map. Avoid the left wall.
   
   The Developer's Chest often offers overpowered equipment on your first
   Playthrough, so I definitely advise that you go out and look for it. You
   will have to die in order to return to traversable land, but it is well
   worth it (if anything, you can sell the equipment to make up for the fee
   you got for dying). The chest does respawn, but I'm not sure if it gives
   suped-up equipment after the first time.

If you drive north from the gate, there is a small tent against the edge of
the cliff containing two cots and a [RED CHEST]. This is in the northwest
sector. After that, you might want to stay away from the northern cliff: there
is a powerful Level 25 boss named Rakkinishu that will begin attacking you if
you enter his territory.

Drive over to the Underpass, which is the northeast sector. There is a
transition leading to the Rust Commons East, but I'd hold off on exploring
that place. From the garage here at the Underpass, drive north alongside the
wall and continue on foot when the path gets too narrow. Run past the New-U
Pole and enter the dig site.

The heightened ledge at the north end prevents easy access, so you'll have to
go south and loop your way around to reach Patricia Tannis. Gun down the
Spiderant Workers and Gyros and follow the road north. This place looks an
awful lot like the Haunted Excavation, doesn't it? You may encounter a Badass
Spiderant, so watch your back and take it down just like the others.

A few Rakks are circling over Tannis' pad. Kill them and look around at all
the Rakks and Feeder Rakks hanging upside-down on the alien rocks like
oversized bats. This place is Rakk central. Also, with some good parkour
skills, you can jump across the stone blocks on the northern end to reach a
[RED CHEST] atop one of them. Finally, talk to Patricia Tannis in her lab.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Meeting Crazy Earl at his scrapyard is kind of a chore, so you might want to
relax a bit and begin many of the New Haven side missions. It is not a
requirement, but it's probably better to get as many of them out of the way
as you can, and sooner rather than later.

If you have strolled through most of the map in the Rust Commons West, you can
easily Fast Travel to the Outeryard near the center of the map. Otherwise,
enter the Rust Commons West from New Haven and start your way south. Follow
the main road until your vehicle can go no further, then set off on foot. You
should make it to the yard, which is filled with bandits and contains a
couple Gatling Turrets. Crazy Earl's Scrapyard can be accessed from the
Outeryard.

Skags roam around the entrance to the scrapyard. Hooray for Skags! Most of the
enemies here are in the ranges of Level 21-23. Gun down the various Skags that
confront you before approaching the main gate to Crazy Earl's Scrapyard. Keep
a safe distance before shooting the two gas tanks in front of the boarded-up
gate. Kaboom.

 - Path cleared: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

To meet Crazy Earl, walk over to his trailer on the other side of the gate.
The wacko won't directly confront you and instead stays inside his domicile.
Talk to him through the window slot to receive two new jobs (one being a side
mission).

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Crazy Earl gives you this mission along with the side mission, "Today's
Lesson: High Explosives". Both missions occur at the same location in the
scrapyard, and since he gave them both to you in a package deal, you might as
well complete them together before returning to Crazy Earl.

The scrapyard itself is divided into two sections. You reach a junction just
past Crazy Earl's trailer which either takes you to the north side or the
south side of the scrapyard. North or south. It's that simple to navigate.
For this mission, you will be heading south in search of Spiderants and
bandits: you must kill three Spiderants and 25 bandits in order to please
Earl. Lucky for you, three Spiderants pop up right at the fork.

 - Spiderants killed: 3/3

Start going southeast down the narrow passage, avoiding the rows of elemental
barrels along the way. It won't take long before you encounter some bandit
resistance; there is a single hut on the right side of the road, where you'll
also find a [SILVER CHEST]. 

Continue onto a large metal walkway filled with tons of elemental barrels and
bandits. Be careful when standing near barrels that may get set off from
enemy fire. As soon as you step onto the walkway, look northeast and jump onto
the metal island to reach a [RED CHEST]. Leap back across and follow the
walkway to the end, opening the [2 SILVER CHESTS] along the way.

When you reach the ground, walk across the bridge to the hut and kill a few
more bandits. Some may begin fighting the Skags around the perimeter, so make
sure to physically kill the bandits yourself rather than the Skags.

In order to reach the other side of the camp, you'll have to walk alongside
the northern perimeter and loop around. Shoot down the Skags as you plod
through the sludge to a New-U Pole. Kill the bandits and the Badass Bruiser
here, then leap past the New-U Pole into the main campsite.

The circular area is home to many bandit enemies, so pick any cluster of huts
and go from there. There are more than 25 bandits here in the camp, so you
should reach your desired head count before clearing out the entire area.

 - Bandits killed: 25/25
 - TURN IN!

There is still likely more to be explored, however. If you loop around to the
middle portion of the camp, you can climb up a ramp onto the central tower.
There are a ton more bandits up here, and plenty of objects to loot. Walk
through the entire boardwalk leading to the central tower and gain as much XP
and collect as much loot as possible.

| but who cares? Those bandits don't part with it willingly, of course.      |
| That's why you're going, and not me!                                       |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Your quest for liquor takes you to a new realm called Treacher's Landing. The
transition gate is at the southernmost point of the Rust Commons West, so head
on down to the gate. There is a little bit of bandit resistance before
reaching the docks (climb onto the tower next to the gate and grab the
contents of the [SILVER CHEST] before leaving).

Treacher's Landing is mainly a series of shipping ports and piers, so there is
a lot of confined spaces when crossing the docks and boardwalks. Exit the dock
and walk over to the group of bandit houses. Start wastin' people and enter
the first house on the left to find a [SILVER CHEST].

Every bandit drops a [BOTTLE OF BOOZE] when killed, so the quest guidelines
are pretty easy: kill enemies and loot their bodies. All you need are 24
bottles, so you must slay roughly 24 bandits to complete the mission. I will
not go into detail of the area's layout here and will instead explain it in
side missions that actually require you to scour the lands.

All I am going to say is be careful when standing on the docks and taking
cover: the abundance of elemental barrels and Jakobs fuel tanks, paired with
the small confines of the docks, can make for a very dangerous trip. Be wary
of your surroundings. 

 - Bottles of Booze: 24/24
 - TURN IN!

Once you have the booze, return to Earl at his trailer and fork it over. You
can Fast Travel to Crazy Earl's Scrapyard from the Treacher's Landing
entrance. Unfortunately, Earl gives you some bad news in regards to the Vault
key...

| north and past Flood Lock. If you get it back from him, you and that       |
| Tannis woman do whatever you want with it. I'm done with it.               |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

The quest for the next key piece takes you through Krom's Canyon, which is
accessible through the Rust Commons East. After receiving this quest card, new
missions at Helena Pierce's office and the New Haven bounty board become
available, which all focus on the Rust Commons East.

If you are a completion fanatic and would rather become acclimated with the 
Rust Commons East before waltzing through to Krom's Canyon, then be my guest 
and get started on the side missions before hunting down the Vault Key Piece.
As a forewarning: once you open that can o' worms, it'll be a long time before
you can put it down and resume the hunt for Krom.

There are two ways to enter Rust Commons East: from the gate at the Underpass
and down south near the Aqueduct Encampment. It doesn't matter which way, even
though your waypoint directs you to the northern route.

As you can see, Rust Commons East looks unsurprisingly similar to the Rust
Commons West... and it's just as big. For the sake of this job, you are to
make a beeline towards Krom's Canyon and leave the exploration for later. From
the Underpass - East, drive south until you come to a tunnel on your left and
head through. Stay low to the ground and drive through the canyon underneath
the raised drawbridge.

Park your car at Flood Lock and walk up to the New-U Pole. With the dam 
currently sealed, you won't be able to drive your car through and must instead
continue on foot. This next area is tough, so consult the Med and Ammo Vendor
on the east side of the dam if you are ever in trouble.

The entrance to Krom's Canyon is guarded by a Level 26 Gatling Turret and
Level 26 Rocket Turret stationed on the top of two pillars. This is where you
and your Sniper Rifle become best friends.

Hug the left wall and slowly sneak towards the Gatling Turret; if it notices
you, stick to the wall and wait until the gunfire stops. You'll want to make a
mad dash towards the southernmost column, which offers protection from both
turrets. From here you can peek out from the side and plug the Gatling Turret.

If you don't have a good enough Sniper Rifle, then try anything with a Weapon
Zoom: Combat Rifles, SMGs, even Rocket Launchers. Since both have shields,
Shock weapons work extra well here. You'll be able to sprint towards other
columns and objects to hide behind, but the lack of an efficient zoom forces
you to get closer to your target.

Once the Gatling Turret is down, focus on the Rocket Turret. If you stand on
the left side of the pillar and behind the metal frame, the rockets have a
hard time passing through the gaps in the frame to hit you. Therefore, you can
occasionally stand safely behind the frame and shoot at the Rocket Turret
without having the rockets pass through and hit you. If you do start getting
bombarded, then retreat behind the pillar.

If you have Wee Wee's Super Booster equipped, you can hide there all day until
your health regenerates. See? This is why side missions are important!

You aren't out of the woods just yet. In addition to bandit camps around Flood
Lock's perimeter, there is also a Mulciber Mk2 turret planted right next to
the Krom's Canyon gate. You can try flanking the gun, but in any case I
certainly would not suggest running through the center of the area. If you are
confident in your sniping abilities, try to snipe the gunner off the turret.

My goodness! And we haven't even actually reached Krom's Canyon yet! Once the
two turrets and the Mulciber Mk2 are down, feel free to explore all of Flood
Lock before entering Krom's Canyon; there are [2 SILVER CHESTS] to be found in
the vicinity.

Krom's Canyon is mighty big. It's more long than big (think Lost Cave rather
than Dahl Headlands), because it features two winding, snakelike pathways. The
enemies are very tough and are anywhere from Level 25 to Level 27, so you will
likely be encountering some fierce competition. If you are not at least Level
26 yourself, then you may want to turn back and train.

The path immediately splits in Krom's Canyon and presents you with a choice:
left or right? Since Krom is located down the left branch, you'll want to take
that option.

You generally have two choices in this area: you can stay on the ground for
simple "Point A-to-Point B" transportation, but you may be missing out on a
lot of loot. However, you can take to the skies and follow the cliffside
walkways to fight enemies easier and collect a lot of goodies. I prefer the
latter, because you always have the option to drop down to a lower location if
you so desire.

Use the Med and Ammo Vendors at the fork, then go to the right. Yeah, I know
Krom is to the left. Go right anyways. Climb up the first ramp you see and
kill the bandits, then follow the walkway as it entwines up the side of the
mountain and eventually moves back to the west side of the canyon.

Take a look at the map and you'll see that you are on the upper portion of the
trail. Before you continue northwest, go south to a dead end and collect the
contents of the [RED CHEST].

Once you reach the edge of the cliff, snipe the bandits on the other side of 
the gap. Once you've got most of 'em, look off the edge and fall down to the
lower level. Now if you hug the wall to the right, you can jump up a couple
rock steps to ultimately cross the gap.

I know I'm making it seem like you are playing a game of "the floor is lava",
but it's generally easier if you keep a parkour-like element to this and avoid
traveling on the ground when you don't have to. Of course if you do fall to
the ground, it's not the end of the world and you can simply move on. My way
is helpful because you never have to deal with the bandits on the ground.

Eventually you'll reach a dead end and have to fall to the ground. Stay on the
cliff and kill the Level 26 Badass Psycho and his minions, then gun down the
bandits below. Drop down and run past the New-U Pole to enter Krom's lair.

| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Krom is both a pain in the ass and unlike any other boss you have faced    |
| before. Krom resides at the top of his cliffside village and hides out in  |
| his house. He sits in a gatling turret on his balcony and fires down at    |
| you. This fight is similar to your face-offs against the Mulciber Mk2      |
| turrets - one of them should be fresh in your memory.                      |
|                                                                            |
| You are not targeting the bandit Krom himself, but rather Krom's Turret.   |
| Unfortunately, it has the ability to regenerate its health and a patient   |
| sniper's tactic is completely useless in this case. The turret can shoot   |
| machine gun rounds and rockets, so staying behind cover for too long won't |
| protect you from splash damage. You must frequently move.                  |
|                                                                            |
| Unlike the fights with the Mulciber Mk2s, it is not recommended that you   |
| sit back and try to snipe Krom. Krom is a boss, and he isn't susceptible   |
| to one-hit KOs like a bandit simpleton. Your best plan of attack is to     |
| make your way up to the balcony so you are close enough for a clean shot.  |
|                                                                            |
| The layout of the village is a bit annoying, so you will have to zig and   |
| zag your way across the bridges in order to ultimately reach the boss. Go  |
| at a snail's pace; there is no need to rush, but obviously hurry when      |
| moving from one cover to the next. Aside from Krom himself, you'll find    |
| all kinds of bandits: Thugs, Killers, Raiders, Psychos, and Midget         |
| Shotgunners. Enjoy!                                                        |
|                                                                            |
| From the entrance of the village, you can go right or left. I suggest you  |
| head right to bypass the first two islands. Chuck a grenade before you run |
| to any of the islands here in the village. This does two things: it kills  |
| many of the enemies present, and also helps eliminate elemental barrels    |
| that can easily be set off by Krom's Turret.                               |
|                                                                            |
| At the third island is a few more bandits and a [SILVER CHEST]. You are    |
| getting much closer to Krom, which is a good and bad thing: both your and  |
| his attacks have increased accuracy at a closer range and thus can deal    |
| more damage. Toss one or two grenades over to the fourth island before you |
| sprint across.                                                             |
|                                                                            |
| The fourth island offers a lot of cover, so chill here for a while. If you |
| still have Wee Wee's Super Booster - even if you don't have it equipped -  |
| make sure to use it for this fight to regenerate your health before you    |
| make your next move.                                                       |
|                                                                            |
| Here is where strategies branch off a bit. If you are a close-range,       |
| Shotgun-loving character (Berserker, anyone?), the best plan of action is  |
| to run right up to the turret and go buckwild. Shotguns to the face, and   |
| use your Action Skill. Even though Krom can turn his turret 180-degrees,   |
| it should still be enough (plus, even if you become Crippled you are so    |
| close that you can shoot at him from three feet away).                     |
|                                                                            |
| It is risky, but definitely doable. Even Lilith and Roland can employ this |
| strategy. For Lilith: get up close to Krom, fire away, then use Phasewalk  |
| and run back down to one of the islands and hide. Roland probably has it   |
| best: by using Scorpio Turret, you direct all the unwanted attention away  |
| from you and can either bombard Krom from up close or attack from a        |
| respectable distance. Sorry Mordecai... :(                                 |
|                                                                            |
| Now for more long-range players and someone who isn't a tank like Brick,   |
| it is best to stay on this tier of islands and shoot at Krom with a Combat |
| Rifle, Sniper Rifle, SMG, Repeater Pistol, you name it. Any mid-range or   |
| long-range weapon will do the trick. You can run across the bridge to get  |
| on either side of the balcony and confuse Krom a bit, which allows you to  |
| pull off clean shots easier. You have a multitude of strategies here; find |
| one that you like and get to work!                                         |

There's no love lost on the Kobb brothers. Taylor Kobb wants you to infiltrate
Jaynistown and eliminate his brother, Jaynis. View your map if you need help
finding Jaynistown, then head there immediately. 

Stay outside of the main gate and peer inside the town, scoping out the area
and determining who you can kill from out here. Try to pick off as many
bandits as you can before actually entering the town. You'll encounter pretty
much every bandit type (including Psychos) under the sun in Jaynistown; the
enemies are all around Level 26, so this should be no trouble if you have
already tackled the Circle of Slaughter.

There is a building on the southwest end of town that gives you access to the
roof. This is a great place to start sniping any stragglers: you have great
cover from bandits, and the Psychos must funnel up the staircase in order to
reach you, so you can cut them off at the stairs. Once the bandits have been
killed, direct your attention to Jaynis Kobb, who wanders around the north
side of Jaynistown.

| Unlike many bosses, Jaynis Kobb is free roaming and you can trigger this   |
| boss fight as soon as you enter Jaynistown. Doing so is ill-advised and    |
| killing the accompanying bandits first is a much better idea. Make sure to |
| stay on the south side of town so you don't catch his attention and        |
| prematurely begin the duel. He'll threaten you if you get too close and    |
| only opens fire in retaliation, so don't shoot at him until you're ready.  |
|                                                                            |
| Since Jaynis Kobb typically doesn't start the fight, make sure you get a   |
| good, clean first shot. Snipe him in the head or blast him with a grenade  |
| or Rocket Launcher. A critical hit with a strong enough weapon may fully   |
| drain his shield in one shot, so the first shot is worth it.               |
|                                                                            |
| There is a lot of running room in Jaynistown and plenty of areas to hide   |
| and protect yourself. While you probably cannot see him from the roof of   |
| the southwest house, there are a couple other buildings at the north end   |
| that have roof access. Jaynis probably won't run up the stairs and         |
| confront you, but if he does you can drop down to the ground and flee.     |
|                                                                            |
| A few more bandits may enter the fray after Jaynis opens fire, so try and  |
| deal with them first. As for the boss himself, treat him like any other    |
| bandit. He may have more HP and a tough shield, but you have the entirety  |
| of Jaynistown to yourself. Run around, hide on the opposite side of the    |
| town, heck, even take a breather and check out the Weapon Vendor if you    |
| want to buy a weapon. It's pretty easy to shake Jaynis Kobb.               |

Pick up the weapon left behind, [THE MEAT GRINDER] (an average Combat Rifle

the northeast house. There are also plenty of ammo crates to keep your stock
high.

With the deed done, drive east from Jaynistown and report back to Taylor Kobb.

Exit the city through the northern gate and walk through the junkyard until

the middle. Little out of place, but there's nothing suspicious about it...
right...?

the fence and ambush you. This shouldn't be all that surprising. Taylor Kobb
used you in order to get his brother out of the picture, and now he has taken
over the town for himself. And I bet he isn't even going to try and improve

|____________________________________________________________________________|

There are a couple new side missions that have become available, so at least
pick them up before you leave New Haven. You might want to complete them
before going through with the assassination. Fast Travel to The Cauldron and
get to steppin'.

Jaynisto-- well, Taylortown, has been revamped by its new head in charge; the
first order of business being the installation of Gatling Turrets around the
town to keep out unwanted visitors (read: you). You will have to disarm them
first if you want to safely enter the town.

Don't enter Jaynistown yet and head for the watch tower at the east end of the
town's border - it's right across the street from The Cauldron Catch-A-Ride
Station. Here you have a great view at two of the Level 27 Gatling Turrets,
but the long range requires you to use a Sniper Rifle in order to sufficiently
eliminate them. Duck whenever the gunfire gets too crazy and focus on one at a
time. There are two ammo crates inside the tower.

Now enter Jaynistown through the main gate. The enemies here are a slightly
higher level than before (around Level 28), but you have plenty of room to
maneuver and several buildings that you can climb up on (the northeast and
southwest corners primarily) for a good sniping position.

Unlike Jaynis Kobb, his sibling does not associate himself with his lowly
subordinates, so you don't have to worry about bumping into him and triggering
the boss fight; Taylor is safely and securely tucked inside a building at the
west end until you are ready to confront him. Take your time annihilating all
the bandits in the town, then search the place for any Silver and Red Chests,
and even sell loot at the Weapon Vendor before you are ready.

Once you are ready, move over to the waypoint at the west side of Jaynistown.
There is a building on the other side of a gate, and Taylor Kobb reveals
himself once you get close enough.

| You will want to run away immediately. Taylor does not step into the town  |
| alone: he is joined by two Level 28 Bruisers and a pair of Level 24 Rocket |
| Turrets. Get back behind the gate and find a house or something to hide    |
| behind. You will want to prioritize and pick off each group individually.  |
|                                                                            |
| Unfortunately, Taylor has installed a gate that cuts off the west side     |
| from the rest of the town, so you cannot flank him by going around. The    |
| only way is through the gate that you entered, and that's right in the     |
| line of fire. Taylor and the Bruisers are smart enough not to leave their  |
| post, so you won't be able to coerce them past the gate.                   |
|                                                                            |
| Your best bet is to back up and eliminate the two Rocket Turrets from a    |
| respectable distance. You can shoot the one on the right from the roof of  |
| the southwest house. As for the one on the left, you can probably stay on  |
| the ground, but pretty far away. Once the two Rocket Launcher Turrets are  |
| out of the picture, you can pick off the two Bruisers through the gate.    |
|                                                                            |
| Once it's just you and Taylor, pass through the gate and attack. Taylor    |
| Kobb can be one tough customer. He has a big ol' shield and a destructive  |
| Rocket Launcher; like the Reaver fight, you will want to keep moving as to |
| prevent the boss from landing an accurate hit. Taylor usually has to plant |
| his feet before firing a rocket, so he is slow to attack (but the hits are |
| devastating!). Strafe side to side and use the crates and rocks to confuse |
| Taylor. He shouldn't be able to land any clean shots if you keep moving.   |

 - Taylor Kobb killed: Objective Complete

Taylor Kobb drops [THE ROASTER], his signature Rocket Launcher that has x4
Fire properties: the highest available! Make sure to also inspect the [RED
CHEST] on Taylor's front porch before leaving.

There is no need to report to Helena Pierce or anyone else. You are free to
enter the Trash Coast and continue your alliance with Patricia Tannis. The
Trash Coast is located east of Jaynistown, past The Cauldron. From the garage,
pass through the gorge towards Taylor Kobb's initial campsite, then climb the
hill to find his hacked Claptrap guarding the way. Now that his master is
kaput, the sassy robot answers to you and steps aside.

| obtain the third fragment of the Vault Key and return it to Tannis.        |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 .-----------------------.
 | Easter Egg: The Rider |
 '-----------------------'
 - There is a unique gun that can be obtained now. In fact, the window for
   collecting it is pretty small: you can only get it when you have this
   current story mission ("Another Piece of the Puzzle") in your inventory.
   If you have managed to obtain the Vault Key Piece, then the area becomes
   inaccessible, so you're best off doing this before even entering the Trash
   Coast.
   
   Enter New Haven. Go down the alley behind Marcus' shop and then turn to the
   right. There is a small blue building across from Erik Franks. Go up to the
   door and press X; it should open even though there isn't a button prompt
   onscreen. If you have turned in the mission already, the door won't open
   and you will not be able to get the gun.
   
   Head inside and ride the elevator down to the basement. There are a few
   Level 30 Psychos and Badass Psychos inside. Next, open the [RED CHEST] to
   receive [THE RIDER], a semi-automatic Sniper Rifle with no zoom and a big
   magazine. In fact, the weapons manufacturer is Gearbox themselves! The gun
   isn't anything special (it resembles like Whitting's Elephant Gun), but the
   weapon is clearly a reference to the movie "A Christmas Story". In fact,
   check out the desk to find the leg lamp!

The Trash Coast is a large coastal area that has recently become a dump site,
so the once-lush scenery has now been overrun with stinky garbage. You start
off somewhat in the middle of the Trash Coast, and various missions are either
located at the north side or the south side. In this case, you will be heading
north to find the Vault Key Piece.

Once past the vendors, walk onto the bridge and continue north. The Trash
Coast is home to many Spiderants, so they are your main encounters here. At
the fork, hang a right to stay on the coastline. There are a lot of Spiderants
here, Level 29 at best, and things can get tough if you are underleveled. If
you aren't at least Level 30, maybe head back and try some side missions.

Walk onto the island for a [RED CHEST], then exit to the north and continue
onward. Fight past another group of Spiderants to eventually come to a New-U
Pole; you may begin hearing some loud grumblings. For the record, the source
of that noise is the "challenge that you must overcome".

Proceed past the skull and bones decorations as you make your way to the
northern point. There is a ramp leading down to the ground or a path to the
left that keeps you on the cliff. Walk to the left and stay on the cliff. If
you walk far enough, you should trigger a cutscene.

| BOSS: Rakk Hive |__________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |

|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Yep. Do you remember seeing those strange orange mounds that release Rakks |
| into the air during your journey? Well one of those climbs out of the      |
| earth to reveal much more than an orange mound. This is a Rakk Hive.       |
|                                                                            |
| The Rakk Hive is a gargantuan four-legged creature that shoots Rakks out   |
| of its back. In addition to fighting the lumbering beast, you will have to |
| fend off groups of Rakk dive bombers. You can fight the boss either on the |
| ground or from the cliffside, but the choice depends on your character     |
| class and preferred weapons.                                               |
|                                                                            |
| First off, the attacks: the Rakk Hive himself does not do much other than  |
| walk around the clearing. The boss occasionally raises up onto its hind    |
| legs and stamps down onto the ground, creating a miniature earthquake that |
| you must jump over (obviously this attack is useless if you are standing   |
| high up on the cliff). The Rakk Hive can also shoot Corrosive blobs out of |
| its mouth, so you'll probably see this one a lot if you're on the cliff.   |
| These gas bombs create a lingering poison stench that can damage you.      |
|                                                                            |
| Lastly, and most importantly, the Rakk Hive can release Rakks into the     |
| skies. These Rakks - either Experienced Defender Rakks or Experienced      |
| Kamikaze Rakks - attack in groups. The Defender Rakks are regular Rakks,   |
| but the Kamikaze Rakks explode on contact and can deal a lot of damage.    |
| Look for them (they are shades of yellow and orange) and shoot them down   |
| before they blow up in your face.                                          |
|                                                                            |
| This boss fight can be tough (well, more annoying than tough) for Brick    |
| players; assuming that you are fond of Shotguns and Rocket Launchers. You  |
| will be fighting against Rakks more than the boss itself, and automatic    |
| weapons with preferably large magazines and/or reload speed are key for    |
| taking down hordes of Rakks. The good thing about Kamikaze Rakks is that   |
| blowing one up usually sets off a chain reaction and kills the rest.       |
|                                                                            |
| In addition, the Rakk Hive's weak point are its four fluorescent eyes,     |
| which are pretty high up and likely out of the range of most Shotguns. If  |
| you are a close-range fighter, you may want to jump off the cliff and      |
| fight the boss on the ground. Even if you can't hit the eyes, shooting at  |
| the boss's legs and side will get the job done.                            |
|                                                                            |
| For virtually any other character, I suggest staying on the cliff. It is   |
| high enough so you are at the same level as the Rakk Hive and have a great |
| view of the sky and the surrounding areas, so no Rakks should surprise you |
| from above. You are also out of range of the boss's shockwave stomp and    |
| only have to worry about the Corrosive projectiles. On top of all that,    |
| you can run back to the intersection and hide from the boss if need be.    |
|                                                                            |
| Precision players such as Mordecai should have an easy time sniping out    |
| the Rakk Hive's four eyes. After taking enough damage, they pop and force  |
| you to target somewhere else, but once the fourth eye is removed the boss  |
| is likely on its last legs (shooting at its eye sockets still counts as a  |
| critical hit). Any fully automatic weapon with a good Weapon Zoom or a     |
| Sniper Rifle work wonders against the Rakk Hive.                           |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Challenge overcome: Objective Complete

After the fight, try to collect as much loot as you can that was scattered by
the Rakk Hive. Upon closer inspection, you'll notice that the Rakk Hive is
still alive and likely suffering. That's sad.

There are two red tents down in the clearing where you can find a buttload of
ammo crates to help restock after the boss battle. If you look on your map for
a cavern entrance and walk over to it, the door is set on fire and a huge
Rakk flies out and away (I tried shooting it down but it doesn't die). Check
the place out to find a chest containing the [VAULT KEY PIECE] and some cash.

 - Vault Key Piece: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Give Tannis the Vault Key Piece to complete the mission.

| Once our Vault Key is completed, it will lead us to the location of the    |
| Vault. There's just one more piece, and my sources tell me that Baron      |
| Flynt has it. He lives on a giant digging machine in the Salt Flats. Wait. |
| The gate to the Salt Flats won't open unless you find the silly little     |
| Claptrap doorman. My sources tell me he's trapped inside Old Haven, so     |
| maybe you'd better go and get him out of there, first. Otherwise, I'll be  |
| stuck here with you.                                                       |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Exactly where does this lady get her sources? Whatever. Your journey takes you
to Old Haven; a city that used to be the place to be in the Rust Commons until
it was abandoned and New Haven was built. Well, Old Haven is no longer empty
and is now a hotspot for the Crimson Lance, the Atlas Corporation's personal
task force. The going gets tough from here on out. You might want to invest in
some Shock and Corrosive guns.

You can reach Old Haven from the Rust Commons East. Warp to The Cauldron, then
drive through the tunnel towards the North Drawbridge. The transition gate is
on the right side of the road just before coming to the bridge.

Once inside Old Haven, exit the building to reach a New-U Station. Even though
you don't have to search high and low, this is a good area to gain XP and find
loot. For the sake of this mission, I'm going to provide a straightforward
route to the trapped Claptrap.

From the Med and Ammo Vendor, go west past a New-U Pole until you reach a main
street. From here, you can head south all the way to the opposite end of the
map. The Crimson Lance will make sure your trip isn't a pleasant one. Most of
the baddies here are Level 28.

Crimson Lance enemies are all heavily armored and shielded. They are also a
lot smarter than bandits and are known to take cover and throw much more
frequently then their uncivilized counterparts. The Crimson Lance replace
bandits as the typical enemy encountered for the remainder of your adventure.
Lance Infantries are the most common Crimson Lance and don't always have
shields. Despite being the weakest, they are also the fastest.

Lance Engineers wear all red armor and are much slower, but more durable. What
makes them dangerous is that they can deploy Scorpio Turrets. It's usually
best to take care of the Engineer after a turret is set up, because it will
automatically disappear when the Engineer is killed. Lance Defenders look like
Engineers but carry huge shields that protect most of their body. forcing you
to provide better aim or get behind them.

The Badass Lance are the worst. They come in three varieties: Badass Infantry,
Badass Engineer, and Badass Defenders. Needless to say, they share the same
abilities as the normal type but are bigger and stronger.

Even though there are streets throughout Old Haven, they are usually heavily
populated. Think about the uncharted routes, such as weaving through alleys
and even using lockers and crates to get on top of buildings. Old Haven offers
a lot of freedom in movement. 

Once you have reached the southern end of Old Haven, try and take cover from
the Gatling Turrets. The southern platform is separated from the rest of the
city by a dried moat, and the main bridge is destroyed. Stay on the other side
and gun down all the Crimson Lance on the other side. There are a lot of them.

Next, drop down to the bottom of the moat and use one of the flights of stairs
to reach the south side. Search the place for loot and a [RED CHEST]. The
Claptrap you're looking for is inside a cage on the left. Flip the switch to
lower the cage and set him free.

 - Claptrap freed: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Talk to the Claptrap to hand in the mission. Your stay in New Haven and the
surrounding areas is complete. Time to head to the Salt Flats for the final
Vault Key Piece.

|                                                                            |
| The little Claptrap doorman is freed, so you should now be able to enter   |
| the Salt Flats. Talk to the Claptrap once he's at the gate. It is time to  |
| go after Baron Flynt, who punched my dog and stole a piece of the Vault    |
| Key. Did I mention he lives on a giant digging machine in the Salt Flats?  |
| He calls himself the leader of all the bandits. You'd like him, I think.   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Try to wrap up the Old Haven sidequests and any other side missions in the
previous regions. The Salt Flats is the final stretch. The Claptrap doorman
will be at his post immediately after the conclusion of the last mission, so
you are free to enter the Salt Flats right after accepting the quest.

The Salt Flats is basically one large circle, and right in the middle of the
circle is the drilling mechanism that Baron Flynt calls home (well actually,
he technically calls it Thor). The area is also real pretty with its light 
blueish-purple hue. Before you reach the actual Salt Flats you'll come to a 
small bandit camp. Splatter everyone and then comb the area to find a [RED
CHEST] along with generic loot.

As Baron Flynt beckons you from your ECHO device, drive into the middle of the
Salt Flats. Thor is protected by Level 29 Out Riders that usually drive in
circles around the mining structure. All you have to do is torch four of them
to break down Thor's security force. There are a couple Catch-A-Ride garages,
with the closest ones being at the base of Thor's Digtown and one at the north
end near the entrance to the Devil's Footstool Arena.

 - Bandit patrols destroyed: 4/4

Doors on the north, south, east, and west side of Thor's Digtown open after
blowing up four Out Riders. Feel free to look around the area before going
inside Thor: I wouldn't go too far, but there is a large silo on the east side
of the map which contains a [RED CHEST].

When you are ready, drive over to the gate at Thor's Digtown and step inside.
I suggest infiltrating from the east end. The town is mainly a ring of camps
surrounding Thor's base, so do a lap and wipe everyone out before trying to
get inside the structure. The enemies here are only around Level 29-30. 

There is a [RED CHEST] ripe for the taking near the western gate. On this side
of the town is a tunnel leading to a New-U Pole, an elevator, and a second
[RED CHEST]. Ride the elevator.

 - Thor infiltrated: Objective Complete

Baron Flynt sits on his trashy throne atop Thor, but is willing to sick his
men on you before getting his hands dirty. Various doors begin to open as you
step foot off the elevator, and you are greeted by bandits and Psychos. The
ones you have to worry about are the Level 30 Badass Psychos. Up next are
Baron Flynt's personal bodyguards.

| These two goons resemble Badass Bruisers - Franz especially. Both are big  |
| meatheads with a mean streak. Hanz is the bald guy with the huge cleaver   |
| and Franz uses a Combat Rifle and wears a thick helmet. Therefore Hanz is  |
| more inclined to chase after you and use melee attacks while Franz sits    |
| back and guns you down.                                                    |
|                                                                            |
| The top floor of Thor is a large rectangle with two walls on the left and  |
| right side. You can run around the entire rig and have Hanz follow suit,   |
| so try to run behind one of the walls to separate Hanz and Franz. Sprint   |
| from north to south, then turn around and wait for Hanz to round the       |
| corner before you unload a clip. Run around the other side of the wall in  |
| a circle and repeat the process. As for Franz, treat him like the Badass   |
| Bruiser that he is.                                                        |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

They were just the appetizer... the main course is still to come!

| BOSS: Baron Flynt |________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |

| Strategy:                                                                  |
| The second Hanz and Franz hit the ground, Baron Flynt is all over you like |
| white on rice. A few bandits and a Bruiser join in on the fun, but you     |
| might want to keep one or two around in case of needing a Second Wind.     |
| The enemies appear at the north end of the platform, underneath Baron's    |
| throne. The boss himself starts off at his throne and begins running amok. |
|                                                                            |
| Baron Flynt has a unique Shotgun that actually fires rockets, and also is  |
| able to unload a full clip with one pull of the trigger. Even though the   |
| top of Thor is mammoth in size, the rockets can travel pretty far and can  |
| strike you from a surprising amount of places since they kinda wiggle in   |
| the air and rarely travel in a straight line.                              |
|                                                                            |
| The boss's gun has its pros and cons. For one, it's powerful and getting   |
| hit by six or so rockets simultaneously really hurts. If you manage to     |
| dodge all of them, however, Baron is left defenseless while he has to      |
| slowly reload.                                                             |
|                                                                            |
| The only reason why this boss battle isn't particularly difficult is due   |
| to the size of the arena. Thor's platform is gigantic and you have so much |
| running room and so many tiny buildings to hide in. You even have access   |
| to the upper levels and Baron's throne, so you can effectively run away    |
| from Baron Flynt and then snipe him from a corner while he's out looking   |
| for you. Stand on his throne and shoot down at him from above, then when   |
| he climbs up to the throne jump to the bottom level and go hide.           |
|                                                                            |
| You can play a silly game of cat and mouse with Baron Flynt, but you need  |
| to make sure never to get close to him. Otherwise, Baron's Shotgun attack  |
| will unload its rockets directly in your face and you'll probably die in   |
| one hit. He can be hard to see since for whatever reason he kinda blends   |
| in the background, so you're better off looking for the trail of rockets.  |
|                                                                            |
| Be patient, but don't take too long of a break in between hiding and       |
| attacking: Baron Flynt's shield has a very high recharge rate and can      |
| fully refill in no time. It's a tedious fight, but if you keep your        |
| distance and land critical hits, you will win.                             |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Baron Flynt killed: Objective Complete

Pick up Baron Flynt's [BOOM STICK], which, as you know, can fire six rockets
in one shot. It's kinda like Sledge's Shotgun: super deadly, but literally
zero Accuracy. Climb up to Baron's throne and pop open the chest.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Commandant Steele radios in out of the blue and proclaims that there is no
fourth Vault Key Piece and that Patricia Tannis is a slimy backstabber, and
also that she is shutting down the ECHO system. Who knows what to believe. All
I know is that it is time to get some answers.

Ride the elevator back down to Thor's Digtown and find a Runner. Time to take
matters up with the Crimson Lance. Their stronghold is southwest of Thor, so
set off for the corner. You will begin to see a change of scenery as you go:
snow!

Don't follow the road all the way, or else you will find yourself at the
transition gate to the Crimson Enclave with a whole lotta Crimson Lance in
your hair. Look on the map for an alcove and park on the side of the road.
There is a very small and well hidden tunnel that takes you into Thor Cave.
The gate to the Backdoor is just up ahead.

The Backdoor is a small tunnel that serves as a secret entrance to the Crimson
Enclave. The trip is uneventful, but there are Level 30 Spiderants and Larva
Crab Worms residing in the cavern. There are a lot of ammo crates and even a
[RED CHEST] to help prepare you for the upcoming task.

Proceed through the industrial tunnel to end up at a New-U Pole, an Ammo
Vendor, and [2 RED CHESTS]. You know something big is coming up soon. Drop
down the shaft and hit X next to the Data Recorder to reveal the entrance to
the Crimson Lance's base. Unfortunately, you have to tango with the doorman...

| BOSS: Master McCloud, Lance Royal Guard x2 |_______________________________
|                                                                            |

| Lance Royal Guard - Level: 31              Resist: None                    |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Well, Commandant Steele obviously saw us coming. So much for being sneaky. |
| Master McCloud is a high-ranking officer of the Crimson Lance and is a     |
| force to be reckoned with. He also brings along two Lance Royal Guards,    |
| who are very tough in their own right.                                     |
|                                                                            |
| The two Lance Royal Guards should be your first priority. They are the     |
| weaker guys compared to the real boss, and can be taken down easier since  |
| they do not have shields. Even though they are bigger than your average    |
| soldier and wear purple armor, they share the same mannerisms with Lance   |
| Infantry (Badass Infantry, to be specific). They have thick armor on their |
| legs and shoulders that absorb all damage, so you must aim for the head at |
| all times. Also watch out for grenades - they are grenade fiends.          |
|                                                                            |
| The arena is strangely reminiscent of the room where you fought the Roid   |
| Rage Psycho in Sledge's Safe House. It is one huge circle with stacks of   |
| boxes littering the area, providing you with plenty of hiding spots. You   |
| cannot run far from three Crimson Lance, which is why whittling this fight |
| to a standard 1-on-1 affair is key.                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Things become much more manageable when it's just you and Master McCloud.  |
| He is essentially a suped-up Lance Engineer who can summon a Scorpio       |
| Turret on command. You should not bother wasting your ammo on destroying   |
| the turret. The room is big and wide enough for you to simply run around   |
| and/or behind it to render is completely useless. Plus, it disappears      |
| around 30 seconds after it is deployed.                                    |
|                                                                            |
| The boss also uses a lot of grenades and usually tosses them at you from   |
| behind a crate or his Scorpio Turret. Thankfully, he only uses standard    |
| grenades rather than the Transfusions that most Lance Engineers prefer. He |
| also uses an Eridian weapon which may be new to you; these weapons are     |
| very rate and usually fire plasma rounds. In this case, the gun shoots out |
| huge Shock balls that travel slowly through the air. Easy to dodge, but    |
| boy do they hurt if you aren't paying attention.                           |
|                                                                            |
| The fight is pretty easy when the two Lance Royal Guards are out of the    |
| picture. Master McCloud has a shield but it can be drained in one shot     |
| with a Shock weapon or if you score a critical hit. Like all Crimson Lance |
| enemies, Corrosive weapons help on an armored foe like Master McCloud.     |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Search the three corpses, especially McCloud's, who drops the [10110 CANNON]
after his death. You can test it out in the arena to see what it's like.
Eridian weapons do not consume any ammunition, but require a cooldown period
after several shots. They are usually very slow to fire and recharge, but
often offer really good elemental stats. They definitely aren't for everyone.

Continue through the gate to the Crimson Fastness. The Crimson Fastness is a
base that eventually leads to the Crimson Enclave. It's kinda like Sledge's
Safe House in that the area mainly consists of hallways and small rooms.
Claustrophobics beware.

Leave the vendors and New-U Station behind as you enter the first chamber. It
is a long room with a Gatling Turret at the far end that begins shooting at
you immediately. Destroy it and clear out the Level 31 Crimson Lance soldiers
as well. They don't take too kindly to Claptraps, so it seems: there are piles
of destroyed Claptraps scattering the room (although one is alive!).

Enter the den. There are more bad guys roaming around downstairs past the
tables and bunk beds. Kill them from above, then stay on the top floor. You
can access the next room by opening the door on the second floor or by heading
downstairs and opening the large gate. Doesn't matter, though the door on the
top floor has a [RED CHEST] on the other side. Either way, you will find
Patricia Tannis.

 - Tannis found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

In order to get to her cell, you must fight through a wave of Crimson Lance,
including a random Badass Lance. Talk to Tannis through her holding cell next
to the New-U Station.

Just scanning the room could give you the heebie-jeebies. Leave through the
southern opening and peek around the corner: there are about three Crimson
Lance and a Gatling Turret planted in the stairwell. Toss a couple grenades to
get 'em riled up, then take them down in the confusion.

Ascend the stairs and continue into a large loading dock. Here you will find
the ECHO Command Console.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The three Transmitter Consoles are in the Crimson Enclave. Proceed north to
the exit door, only to have four Badass Engineers storm in. Back up into the
center of the room and defeat them while taking necessary cover. On the other
side of the door is the hangar near the entrance. Climb the stairs and return
to the vendors, otherwise exit the hangar. Before going through the transition
gate, hang a right to enter a narrow hallway containing [2 RED CHESTS].

The Guardian enemy type makes their return after only being seen in a brief
side mission. Guardians are wispy ghostlike aliens that are very fast and
mainly use Shock-based attacks. Their heads are their weak point, but can be
hard to hit since their noggins are so tiny. The majority of Guardian enemies
have very large shields, but these enemies are fragile once without it.

You'll mainly fight against Principal Guardians (swordsmen) and Arch Guardians
(long-range fighters). Badass Guardians are tougher versions of the Principal
Guardians. Stand back and let the Guardians and the Crimson Lance duke it out,
only stepping in to kill a Badass Guardian. Once the dust settles, take down
any survivors. 

Head to the north, where the first Transmitter Console is located. Pass
through the ravine and up the hill towards the overpass. Kill the Crimson
Lance and continue towards the building. The alarms sound and a mob of Lance
Infantry rush outside. Hide behind one of the storage containers so you aren't
in the Gatling Turret's line of fire; try to down the turret so you have more
freedom against the soldiers.

Go through the front door and up the stairwell to the second floor. Open the
door here, then open the next one to reach the control room. Fiddle with the
button panels to activate the Transmitter Console. Continue onto the roof,
open the [RED CHEST], then jump off.

The second building is way south. Even though there is a Catch-A-Ride Station
farther down the ravine, a gate prevents you from joyriding across the entire
map. Time to hoof it. An alarm sounds when you get too close to the building,
and another Gatling Turret pops out of the ground. Shoot it down and direct
your attention to the Crimson Lance fleet; there tend to be more Lance
Engineers at this station.

Climb up the stairs on the right and enter the building through the balcony.
Work your way downstairs, heading towards the control room. Activate the
second Transmitter Console. Continue to the first floor for a [RED CHEST],
then open the door and get outta there.

The third building is secluded to the west. From your position, head northwest
along the plain, breezing through the Crimson Lance on patrol. As you reach
the entrance bridge, you'll find another battle between the Crimson Lance and
the Guardians. New enemies, Sera Guardians, float in the air and shoot laser
beams at their targets. These foes are tough and hard to reach since they
usually fly out of range of some weapon types.

Again, stay out of everyone's business and let the battle decide a winner,
then kill that party. As you make your way up the hill past the bridge, a
Gatling Turret opens fire from the top. Duck behind the rocks and eliminate
it before focusing on the lesser enemies (most of them being Lance Defenders)
and the Badass Defender.

Make your way inside the building from the front entrance. Once again, the
computer room is on the second floor.

 - Transmitter Console activated: 3/3
 - TURN IN!

Now that the ECHO Command System is back up, you must return to the Crimson
Fastness. First, climb on the roof and open the [RED CHEST] before dropping
down to the ground. Nothing special happens during the trip back, although all
the enemies in the Crimson Fastness (including the four Badass Engineers) have
respawned. Yikes! Head back to the loading dock to turn the mission in. Tannis
gives you your next mission over your ECHO device.

| and beat her to it. I'm marking a waypoint at the location of the Vault. I |
| don't have to tell you what to do, do I?                                   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

It's simple: track down Commandant Steele and take back the Vault Key before
she opens the Vault and reaps the rewards all to herself. Stop by at the
vendors here in the Crimson Fastness and do what you need, then Fast Travel to
the Salt Flats.

This is the end of the game. Plain and simple. If there are any missions left
untouched or any stones left unturned, this is the time for that. When you are
ready for the challenges ahead, get in a Runner and drive to the area
northwest of Thor.

There is a small crack in the mountain wall that you can squeeze through in
order to reach the transition gate. Clear out the small bunch of Crimson Lance
on the ridge, then fall down to find another small wave of soldiers. Look on
your map for the entrance and follow the cliffside path to The Descent.

The Descent is an ancient underground temple and home to the Guardians... you 
caught a glimpse of the scenery during the side mission "Ghost of the Vault".
A pillar falls in the first room and startles a group of Trash Feeders. These
birds are harmless; let 'em fly away. The next thing that pops up is not as
harmless: a Sera Guardian swoops through the air and attacks.

When you walk towards the [RED CHEST] on the side, a big Badass Guardian
materializes. These dudes can be tough and carry around two sharp swords.
Watch them as they glide across the room and shoot their head and chest. Open
the treasure chest, then look off the side of the ledge and begin your
descent.

Notice how the drops between each platform are very big, so there is no way of
climbing back up once you start going down. You can be reckless and fall all
the way to the bottom, but you may miss out on loot and things such as the
[SILVER CHEST] in this chasm.

Move into the main chamber to stumble upon an all out war. Again, try to stay
out of the fray and choose your battles wisely. Most of the enemies here and
onward are Level 32, so the going may get rough. The Sera Guardians are the
worst since they can stand on the opposite side of the mining site and shoot
you with their stupid lasers. There are a lot of enemies to keep track of, so
be patient and loot all the ammo crates. And try to stay on the upper levels.

Explore the rest of the area to find a [RED CHEST] at the base of the monolith
among other random lootable objects. The large door at the north end opens
when you walk up to it, revealing more Crimson Lance and a Badass Engineer.
Once they are done with, pass through the room and carefully cross the gorge.
You'll come to the entrance to the Eridian Promontory.

Begin climbing up the side of the snowy mountain. Like in the Crimson Enclave
and The Descent, there will be many instances of Crimson Lance soldiers and
Guardians fighting each other. By now you have probably figured out what type
of enemy you match up against best. If Guardians are harder to kill, then side
with the Crimson Lance and help take down as many Guardians as you can, and
vice versa if you hate those Atlas-loving geeks.

At the second camp, there is a [RED CHEST] underneath the tent. Just past that
is a New-U Pole, and more Guardians. This time, there are no Crimson Lance;
you have their full attention. Shotguns work great in this situation because
the Principal Guardians teleport and all surround you, so things can get
disorienting. There's a [SILVER CHEST] in the third camp.

Go up the hill past the third camp to encounter a Badass Guardian and more
Sera Guardians. Run back down the hill so you're out of the Sera Guardian's
range as you murder the Badass Guardian. Kill the Sera Guardians and proceed
to the top of the hill (there is a [RED CHEST] underneath the arch on the
right).

Continue up the incline towards the fourth camp; an Arch Guardian and three
Sera Guardians appear out of thin air: kill the Sera Guardians first, then the
Arch Guardian and open the [RED CHEST] behind him. Up at the fourth camp,
there are more Crimson Lance and another [RED CHEST]. We're almost there!

A couple more waves of Guardians, and you will reach the final campsite. Help
the Crimson Lance against the annoying-ass Guardians, then reward them with a
swift death. There are a lot of ammo crates and a [RED CHEST] in the camp, so
stock up on ammunition, heal, then enter the Vault. Cutscene time!

 - Steele found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

The mission is automatically completed following the cinema, and you begin a
new one.

Final boss time!


.---------------------.
| BOSS: The Destroyer |______________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 33              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| So this is why the Guardians were protecting the Vault... to prevent this  |
| monstrosity from escaping! The Destroyer is a huge octopus monster with a  |
| huge fanged mouth and four long tentacles. It can be a little daunting,    |
| but trust me when I say that this final boss is a disappointment. The fact |
| that you can Fast Travel out of the area during the fight is one reason    |
| why. So if you're pooped from the trek here, just warp somewhere and come  |
| back when you have a restocked inventory.                                  |
|                                                                            |
| The Destroyer does not move and is stuck hanging out of the mountain. Its  |
| tentacles on the ground can reach out and smack you, and the boss also has |
| a long tongue that it can use as a whip. The two black tentacles on the    |
| top of the boss can hurl spikes at you. The Destroyer also has a shockwave |
| attack that can send you across the map.                                   |
|                                                                            |
| The boss's final attack that it mainly uses when the fight is halfway      |
| over. You'll hear a weird charging noise as The Destroyer lets a pink      |
| laser beam shoot out of its eyeball. This attack is devastating, and the   |
| boss is nice enough to tell you when it's coming. Use the two pillars on   |
| the far end for cover when you hear the laser charging.                    |
|                                                                            |
| This thing is one huge target, but there are some regions that you should  |
| shoot over others. The Destroyer's weak points are its mouth and the pink  |
| bulbs on the black tentacles. When the boss uses its tongue lash attack,   |
| shoot into its mouth for critical hits. Also blasting the bulbs will do    |
| the trick. The black tentacles can be destroyed as another respawns, so    |
| sever one when crippled to get a Second Wind.                              |
|                                                                            |
| Continue attacking the black tentacles to drain the boss's HP the fastest. |
| The Destroyer doesn't have a shield but has a metric-ton of health, so the |
| battle may drag on a bit (but like all unshielded enemies, The Destroyer   |
| is weak against Fire). Larger, thicker tentacles sprout from the boss and  |
| grab onto the environment, but ignore them and continue shooting the black |
| ones with the pink spots.                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| After cutting off all four tentacles, it usually takes a while for them to |
| grow back at once. Resort to aiming at The Destroyer's eye, which is also  |
| a weak point. Stay behind one of the two main columns to keep yourself     |
| protected from the eye beam. Continue shooting the eye until you win. Or,  |
| if the black tentacles grow back, then switch back to them.                |

Woo! The contents of the Vault are all yours. The cliffhanger at the end is

Use the New-U Station to Fast Travel to the Underpass in the Rust Commons
West. Make your way back to the dig site and give the Vault Key to Patricia
Tannis. As you can see from the cash reward, you are well compensated.

Well that's Borderlands for ya! The game's story mode has been completed, and
you are free to roam around and complete any unfinished sidequests, you lazy
bum you. If you are completely done with all missions, you can go ahead and
start Playthrough 2.

 .---------------.
 | Playthrough 2 |
 '---------------'
 - After exiting and loading your file, you have the option to start a second
   playthrough. During Playthrough 2, you start the game all over again, but
   your character's stats and current inventory are untouched. Enemy and
   equipment levels will all be tweaked to suit your current level, and you
   have increased odds of finding purple and orange weapons through the game.
   
   Enemy names change on your second playthrough (refer to the bestiary for
   more details), and Badass enemies are now called BadMuthas.

   The level cap for your character is Level 50 for the standalone game, and
   it will probably take a full go through Playthrough 2 to reach that point.
   If you have downloaded the three story DLCs (specifically The Secret Armory
   of General Knoxx) or have the Game of the Year Edition, then the level cap
   increased to Level 69. I will be covering the three story DLCs in their own
   separate sections below.
   
   After completing Playthrough 2, enemies scale to your level, allowing you
   to revisit areas and continue fighting high leveled enemies anywhere in
   Pandora. You cannot replay the game a third time with one character, but
   this is still a step up from Playthrough 2, which is why this is commonly
   referred to as "Playthrough 2.5" by fans.

For the complete Borderlands experience, I suggest going through the game's

together until the end of the game. The mission order is loosely based on the
order I think they should be completed, but it is by no means set in stone.

This side mission becomes available at the bounty board, and I recommend that
you begin it as soon as possible. This mission is an absolute joke when you
look at the rewards you receive: all you have to do it walk southwest from

no different. Head on over for your reward and the next side mission.

Strange that this mission is Level 7 while the previous (which required
virtually no effort) is Level 10. Hmmm. Anyways, this quest comes alongside
"By the Seeds of Your Pants", but this one is easier and therefore should be
completed first. Head on out to Skag Gully.

Once inside Skag Gully, start following the path as if you were going towards
Nine-Toes' lair. Instead, you want to head north towards the central plain.
The enemies here are around Level 6 and 7, and you'll also run into some
nasty Spitter Skags. As their name implies, these Skags can spit acidic bile
globs at you.

Once in the middle area, defeat all the Skags and head northeast at the fork.
This path eventually takes you to the top of a cliff overlooking this
junction. There are a ton of Skag dens in this hillside trail, meaning that
you'll be fighting many Skags... and looting many Skag piles. Be on the
lookout for Spitter Skags - they are much faster than regular Skags and their
acid spit can melt through your shield in a snap.

The camp site where Scar resides is nearby when you reach another fork. You
can either go west and approach him from the south or continue north and
eventually come in from above. I prefer the northern path, despite having to
face off against Feeder Rakks and Bloated Rakks at the northern tip.

| Scar roams around the center of the campsite and waits for his prey to     |
| come to him. Slay all of the Skags in the vicinity without getting too     |
| close to Scar (he walks around in laps, so you can figure out his boundary |
| lines and determine how close you can get without provoking him).          |
|                                                                            |
| Once all the lesser Skags are killed, open your map and look for the small |
| path that comes to a point at the northeast corner of the camp. Climb up   |
| to the top and take out any long-range weapon. Here you have a good        |
| vantage point where you can snipe the boss (he's hard to miss - Scar is    |
| much bigger than any other Skag you've faced).                             |
|                                                                            |
| Scar will likely notice you immediately and sprint towards your location.  |
| He is very fast and can jump super high (he can reach the ledge from the   |
| ground in one leap), so you'll want to drop down and enter the main camp   |
| site so you have more room to maneuver around Scar.                        |
|                                                                            |
| Scar uses the same attacks and has the same mannerisms as any other Skag,  |
| but he also uses a vicious projectile beam that can cause elemental        |
| damage. Try to avoid facing him head-on so you can avoid this attack and   |
| aim for Scar's head; if he opens his mouth to roar at you, shoot nonstop   |
| into his gaping maw for critical damage. The Clipper is a nice weapon      |
| choice if you are having trouble finding a good gun to use.                |

Scar drops a ton of loot when killed, including [T.K. BAHA'S LEG]. Wipe off
the guts and drop the prosthetic limb in your inventory.

Before you head out, search the camp for a [RED CHEST] and ammo crate. There
is a metal walkway next to the chest that brings you down to the central area.
Feel free to start up "By the Seeds of Your Pants" since you are in the
neighborhood, or return to T.K. and claim your prize.

T.K.'s Wave is technically a Shotgun, but it fires strange blue particles that
travel forwards in a wave. It's truly a one-of-a-kind weapon, but can be a hit
or miss among players.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

This mission is tough, but it can be completed immediately after "T.K.'s Life
and Limb" if you are brave and are stocked up on items and ammunition. This
quest requires you to scour through the northern cave in Skag Gully. To get
there, go northwest at the fork in the area's center (as opposed to northeast,
which takes you to Scar's camp). Proceed into the canyon.

You must collect eight Bladeflower Seeds; the plants look like spiny green
pincushions with a tall red stalk emerging from the center. They glow green
like any key item and each one can be viewed as waypoints on your map and
radar. The first [BLADEFLOWER SEED] is down the northwest path, next to two
Skag dens.

Continue forward through the narrow trail. Large bones that resemble ribcages
line the side of the road as you move ahead. Grab the second [BLADEFLOWER
SEED] at the bottom of the trail leading into the clearing, then face off
against the horde of Skags. Most of these foes are Level 8 or 9, meaning that
this is tough company if you are underleveled. Even Skag Whelps are dangerous
at this level, let alone the Adult Skags you fight here.

Exit the clearing to the north, but double back and hug the eastern wall. You
can jump onto a boulder on the east side of the clearing where you can find
the third [BLADEFLOWER SEED]. Return to the vendors at the entrance to Skag
Gully if necessary, because once you go ahead there's no turning back.

Drop off the rock balcony into the second clearing; a number of Skags are
waiting for you at the bottom, so stay on the upper ledge and shoot down at
them. There are many more Adult Skags in this area, but they look and act just
like Skag Whelps and aren't as dangerous as the Spitter Skags.

The fourth [BLADEFLOWER SEED] is to the right of the cave entrance. Next,
proceed inside the fifth [BLADEFLOWER SEED] on your left. Walk up the ramp and
hug the right wall so you end up on the ledge on the right side of the room.
Defeat the Skag Whelps and stomp through the tall grass at the back corner.
This small area may contain a lot of Alpha Skags, but you can also locate a
[RED CHEST] back here.

Continue south/southwest through the cave, passing by the sixth [BLADEFLOWER
SEED], until you reach a circular room with more Skags. Pick up the seventh
[BLADEFLOWER SEED], then follow the twisting cave path to the final
[BLADEFLOWER SEED] not too far from the previous one.

 - Bladeflower Seeds: 8/8
 - TURN IN!

At the end of the cavern is a [RED CHEST] and some money boxes for the taking.
As you can see, the cave looped completely around to the entrance to to the
canyon, so you can drop down and return to T.K. Baha's Claim in a jiffy.

| back to the bounty board in Fyrestone.                                     |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

This mission is not given by a client and only begins when you pick up the
[BANDIT DATA RECORDER] at the entrance of Skag Gully. The recorder is found on
a bloody cot just past the two vendors.

Unfortunately for you, the two other recorders are on opposite ends of Skag
Gully. The first one is at the southern end and appears on your map as a
waypoint. Proceed south as if you were visiting Nine-Toes. When you reach the
entrance to his lair, head west up the steep incline.

Go forward, kill the Rakk group, and cross the bridge to the camp where you
located the Red Chest after the Nine-Toes mission (so this should all be
familiar territory). Since chests respawn every time you reload your game,
it should be filled assuming that you quit and restarted the game at some
point between here and when you killed Nine-Toes. The next [BANDIT DATA
RECORDER] is between two corpses.

 - 1st Data Recorder: Objective Complete

Now you are to explore the northern end of Skag Gully. Assuming that you 
killed Scar, you should know where you are going. At the first fork, continue
northeast and then go north at the second fork. You should end up at the
northern cliffside where a group of Rakks reside. Shoot them down and collect
the [BANDIT DATA RECORDER] under the canopy near the deceased bandits. Consult
the map if you need any help with directions. 

 - 2nd Data Recorder: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

You can turn this mission in at the Fyrestone bounty board. Oh, and as a
little side note: some minor bosses respawn, such as Nine-Toes and Scar. If
you want to cut through Scar's camp, you will have to fight him and his Skag
minions again. It may be considered an inconvenience, but it is a good way to
rack up XP and attain some good loot.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

This one is painfully easy and doesn't even warrant specific attention; you
will complete it at some point during your journey, so as long as you have the
mission in your inventory you'll complete it eventually. This mission requires
you to run over ten enemies with the Runner. This is incredibly simple because
enemies tend to explode in even the slightest contact, so a simple love tap
from the hood of your car results in their untimely death.
 
If you do want to bang it out quickly and get it over with, there are a number
of Skag dens near the Catch-A-Ride garage and west of Bone Head's hideout.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The two Shep side missions take place at the Zephyr Substation, the location
of the mine key needed for "Sledge: The Mine Key", so you might as well kill
two birds (rakks) with one stone and finish up these two missions while you
are there.

The Zephyr Substation is south of Shep, past the Piss Wash Gully. Drive over
there (there is a Catch-A-Ride station next to Shep's shack) and park your
Runner at the east end of the substation. The Rakks should pop out of their
nest and fly high up in the air.

Your front-mounted guns certainly won't be able to reach them at that high an
elevation, so try hopping in the vehicle's turret (Y). You have a bit more
range, but if you still can't reach the Rakks with the reticule, try shooting
at them and then hopping back in the turret once you have their attention.
You'll mainly be fighting Level 10 Rakks as well as some Bloated Rakks and
Feeder Rakks, but your turret should finish them off with ease.

There are a lot more than ten Rakks present, but feel free to leave once you
reach your desired headcount.

 - Rakk killed: 10/10

| During one of their first raids, the bandits took over Zephyr Substation   |
| and set the emergency brakes on all the wind turbines. They tried to       |
| ransom the region's power supply, but Helena Pierce refused to negotiate.  |
| We've been running off generator power ever since. Since you're on some    |
| sort of anti-bandit crusade anyway, why not release those brakes and turn  |
| the power back on? There'll be a reward for your trouble.                  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

There are three switches that activate the emergency turbine brakes at the
Zephyr Substation. Roll down to the substation and follow your waypoint to the
first one. It does not matter which brake you release first, but the waypoints
only appear one at a time and they certainly help over blindly walking through
the bandit-infested area.

The first switch is on the west side of Zephyr Substation. This area is
particularly dangerous due to the Skag dens. While you have been dealing with
Skags aplenty up to this point, you have not yet encountered the Badass
Skags that live here. The Badass (Elemental) Skags have breath attacks similar
to Scar that can easily destroy your Runner, leaving you to fight off these
monsters on foot. Be careful when fighting them and try to run them over
rather than using your mounted guns.

There is a boulder with a switch on the top near the western set of Skag dens.
Climb the stairs to reach the top of the boulder and press the switch on the
side of the balcony.

 - Turbine Brake A released: Objective Complete

Turbine Brake B is near the central part of the substation, at the southern
end. This is bandit territory, and driving through with a car may not be the
safest route. From the boulder, look south at the huts and buildings and use
some sort of long-range weapon to snipe at the bandits.

Most of the enemies here are standard bandits (Bandit Thugs, Bandit Killers),
but you may find some nasty fellas such as Midget Shotgunners and Bruisers.
A Bruiser is a hulking beast of a man that wields a high-powered Combat Rifle,
but is very slow and susceptible to headshots.

Once most of the crew is deceased, ride down with your car and run over the
remaining enemies. Release the second Turbine Brake.

 - Turbine Brake B released: Objective Complete

The last one is back west, on the other side of the main building. Assuming
that you killed pretty much everyone, you can easily drive over and hit the
switch without interruption.

 - Turbine Brake C released: Objective Complete

|____________________________________________________________________________|

As you can see, this mission is a bit high on the difficulty scale and even
though it is available after killing Bone Head, you might want to hold off
until you breeze through some of the Sledge-related story missions before you
pick this one up. You'll be exploring some new parts of the Arid Badlands that
house some dangerous denizens.

There are five total Log Entries scattered around the Arid Badlands. The first
one that you should pick up is located in Bone Head's camp.

Now keep in mind that most bosses in Borderlands respawn, so there's no need
to do a double take if you see Bone Head walking around his camp again. That's 
no ghost; he will have respawned if you quit and restarted the game since when
you first killed him. Defeat Bone Head once more and grab the [TANNIS JOURNAL
ENTRY] hanging on the metal scaffolding.

 - Journal Day 1: Objective Complete

You won't have to travel far for the next Data Recorder; it can be found in
the small bandit outpost southwest of Fyrestone. The [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] is
next to a Red Chest in the center of the outpost.

 - Journal Day 43: Objective Complete

Your quest takes you down south to the Zephyr Substation. Assuming that you
went there prior for the "Sledge: The Mine Key" story mission and the related
side missions, you should know your way around the area. Drive to the main
building and clear out any bandits that get in your way. Use the metal beams
on the west side of the building to reach the rooftop, then inspect the red
metal dumpster on the roof; the [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] is lying in front of
the open door.

 - Journal Day 76: Objective Complete

Head back north. The next Data Recorder is located near the bandit gate that
you opened up for the mission entitled "The Piss Wash Hurdle". From Shep's
location, go east down the road and park your vehicle near the gate. Climb up
the ramp on the right side of the gate and obtain the [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY]
in the lookout tower.

 - Journal Day 119: Objective Complete

Only one more to go! The final Data Recorder is found in an area that you
likely have not traversed. From the entrance to the Zephyr Substation, pass
the main road and take the lower trail south/southwest past another Catch-A-
Ride garage. North of the garage is the Lost Cave (a sidequest will be taking
you there not too long from now).

From the garage, take the ramp across the way to a bandit camp. You may find
over-leveled enemies on the outskirts of the camp (there are some Level 15
baddies south of the Catch-A-Ride garage), but all the bandits at the camp are
around Level 12 and not as threatening. Feel free to explore the camp and the
cliffside village, but for now pick up the [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] near the
cluster of barrels.

 - Journal Day 172: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

You should probably check out the cliffside village while you're here. From
the base camp, go northeast onto the metal catwalk and kill the bandits ahead.
The enemies here are a bit tougher than below, around Level 13-14, but it will
provide a nice challenge and earn you some much-needed XP. Shoot the Bandit
Raiders and Burning Psychos, then open the ammo box and run down the ramp to
the hut.

Defeat the Bruiser to your left and any other bandits, then head that way to
reach another hut containing a [RED CHEST]. Return to the previous hut and
walk down the ramp cross the bridge to the main road. You can explore the two
huts here but there isn't anything of major worth.

If you want to check out the area south of the Catch-A-Ride garage/southeast
of the camp, go right ahead. Be forewarned that this little nook contains
Level 15 enemies. Go inside the cabin and open the lockers for some loot, then
crawl down the tunnel etched out of the side of the building. This takes you
down into a small cave containing two Mutant Midget Psychos (they act just
like regular Psychos), a [RED CHEST], and a Weapon Vendor. Due to the level
cap in the area, you can expect to find powerful weapons in that chest.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

This is a pretty long sidequest that takes you through a large dungeon called
the Lost Cave. It features new and deadly enemies as well as some cool loot,
so you oughta check it out once you are around Level 15. The Lost Cave is
located west of the Zephyr Substation. Facing the entrance to the Zephyr
Substation, take the lower road towards the Catch-A-Ride garage. The entrance
to the cave is located right next to the garage.

There is a Med Vendor and an Ammo Vendor inside the cave that can help prepare
you for the challenges ahead. You must harvest 50 Shock Crystals inside the
Lost Cave and while that is a staggering amount, it's a bit easier when
considering that they are found in bunches of five. They are easy to spot by
looking for surges of electricity pulsating in the area.

Also, don't bother using the waypoint in this mission, since it only points to
the entrance to the cave and is confusing and useless. You'll have to keep
your eyes peeled and ignore the radar and map when looking for the Shock
Crystal formations.

The Lost Cave is inhabited by Larva Crab Worms. These enemies are slow, but
can burrow underground and pop up somewhere else. This, coupled with the fact
that they travel in groups, make them hard to eliminate individually. Make
sure to aim for their lone eye - it's their weak point.

Dispose of the first batch of Level 15 Larva Crab Worms and head over to the
junction. Your first Shock Crystal batch is found here, leading up to the
northern path (like any key item, it glows green). Shoot the crystal formation
with one of your guns and pick up the [5 SHOCK CRYSTAL] pieces. Like I said,
you always find five per formation.

Now continue up the northern trail to encounter a group of Level 15 Alpha
Skags. Run back down the hill so you have some room to work with when fighting
these beasts. You are close enough to the vendors for a quick restock if
things get hairy. Once they are defeated, sprint back up the hill to find
[5 SHOCK CRYSTALS], bringing your total to 10/50.

Drop down off of the balcony leading to the southern path and slice through
the Larva Crab Worms. Be sure to be checking the Skag piles throughout the
cave for ammo and items; it's a pretty big cave and you don't want to be
running back to the entrance any time you need ammunition or health.

Proceed west, collecting the [5 SHOCK CRYSTALS] in the southern alcove filled
with several Larva Crab Worms. [5 SHOCK CRYSTALS] are farther west along the
trail. If you go around the pillar behind the crystal formation, you can reach
a New-U Pole and a [RED CHEST].

Drop down after collecting the loot and wipe out the multitude of Skags near
the large Skag dens; you'll find mainly Adult Skags and Spitter Skags, but
also a nice amount of Alpha Skags. Go up the hill to reach the southern point
and grab the [5 SHOCK CRYSTALS] as well as the stuff inside the ammo crate.
Watch out for the Badass Elemental Skag that lives up here!

You should now be halfway home. The road continues west, leading into bandit
territory. Snag the [5 SHOCK CRYSTAL] here and crouch down; you can shoot some
of the wandering bandits from here and continue to eliminate the ones that
emerge from the houses.

Once the coast is clear, grab all the loot, including the [RED CHEST] between
two of the houses. A defenseless Claptrap is lying in the center of the camp,
and talking to him begins another side mission. Since "Claptrap Rescue: The
Lost Cave" is also completed inside the Lost Cave, you can work on these two
missions simultaneously.

From the first bandit camp here, go south; there is another bunch of [5 SHOCK
CRYSTALS] this way, plus a [RED CHEST] at the dead end. Now double back and
proceed north to the next set of bandit huts. Utilize the elemental barrels
present and pick up the [5 SHOCK CRYSTALS] before passing through.

As you pass underneath a bridge, you'll come to a New-U Pole and another set
of [5 SHOCK CRYSTALS]. You emerge next to some Skag dens, prompting a battle
with an Alpha Skag and his subordinates. Lastly, [5 SHOCK CRYSTALS] are found
next to the dens, which should bring your total up to 50.

 - Shock Crystals: 50/50
 - TURN IN!

If for some reason you are short on Shock Crystals, there is still a decent
amount of undiscovered land where you can obtain more of them. Regardless, you
should still proceed through the remainder of the Lost Cave for some goodies
in addition to the Repair Kit needed for the Claptrap.

Head west at the bend and go up the hill past the mine track. Take down the
various bandits and Psychos present, then approach the bridge. The Repair Kit
needed for the Claptrap is located here (for more information, consult the
mission card below).

Cross the bridge to the final cavern. This area is tough: it contains several
Skag dens which are home to Alpha Skags only. The Skags usually appear in
pairs, but you will fight a total of at least ten. It can be pretty tough for
a Level 15-16 character, but the best way to go through this is to utilize
your Action Skill and stay near the bridge so the enemies have to funnel
towards you. Your prize for surviving is [2 RED CHESTS]! 

Now you can leave the Lost Cave. When you turn in the mission at the Fyrestone
bounty board, part of your reward is a Shock Artifact. Elemental Artifacts are
class-specific (I'm pretty sure this one always applies regardless of your
character class) and can be equipped to give your Action Skill elemental
properties!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

A wounded Claptrap is found inside the Lost Cave, near the first bandit camp.
After wiping out the foes, inspect the helpless bot to accept the mission. The
Repair Kit is found somewhere inside the Lost Cave, and you can use your
waypoint to determine its location.

The Repair Kit needed is located near the end of the Lost Cave. From the
Claptrap, proceed north through the bandit camps. You'll fight basically any
bandit-type enemy you have faced before, including Psychos and Bruisers.
Follow the straightforward path until you reach the top of a hill. Wipe out
the enemies and approach the bridge. Next, search inside the stack of pipes
next to the bridge to find the [REPAIR KIT] inside.

Deliver the Repair Kit to the Claptrap to complete the mission. As a note to
readers: you must physically use the Backpack SDU in your inventory in order
to upgrade the number of slots; doing so increases the number of slots in your
backpack from 12 to 15.

The Circle of Death Arena (not to be confused with the arena at the bandit
outpost near Fyrestone) is located in the central region of the Arid Badlands.
From the Zephyr Substation, follow the upper road west until you come to a
sign on the side of the road next to a skeleton (up ahead is the bridge
leading to the cliffside village).

Dismount and walk between the scrap metal walls on your right, and cross the
bridge to another New-U Pole. This cavern serves as the entrance to the arena
and contains a Med Vendor, Weapon Vendor, and Ammo Vendor so you can stay in
tip-top shape as you progress through the rounds. As for this mission, all you
have to do is speak with the rugged dude behind the receptionist desk.

Completing this mission allows you to enter the Circle of Death Arena. I

should be at a high enough level (around Level 13) to beat the first two
rounds without much trouble.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Make sure you have enough healing items and ammo for the test ahead, then
enter the battlefield only to have the exit close behind you. There is only
one wave of enemies that you must survive against, and they are all Skag
enemies.

There are three gates that release enemies: two on the west side and one on
the east side. Stay near the entrance and wait for the gates to open before
you begin firing. The enemies in this round include Adult Skags, Spitter
Skags, and usually one Alpha Skag.

Make sure to defeat the Spitter Skags first since their Corrosive spit can
melt through your shield. The Alpha Skag is tough due to the armor plating on
its front, forcing you to shoot its back and side for maximum damage. The Skag
enemies here are around Level 12 with the Alpha Skag being Level 13, so you
should have no trouble with one round of these guys.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

This one is a lot tougher due to the increased levels and the extra wave of
enemies. The first wave of foes is identical to the last round: a few Adult
Skags, some Spitter Skags, and an Alpha Skag. However, their levels are
increased and you can expect to be fighting Level 15 Alpha Skags.

On top of that, two more Alpha Skags enter the mix, and you can be fighting up
to three of these at one time! These guys are very tough and they jump around
a lot, giving you little time to break free and create separation. Use Light
Healing Kits sold at the Med Vendor to heal yourself and always aim at their
naked flesh instead of the gray plating on their front.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Okay, now this one is a bit of a stretch, so you might want to hold off on
this round for a while. The final round does not deviate much from its
predecessor: for the first wave of enemies it throws in a couple Elder Skags
that you should watch out for. There are also a couple more Level 15 Alpha
Skags that enter the fray at the same time.

In addition, there is a super-powerful Level 18 Alpha Skag that emerges after
the others. Needless to say, he is stronger and more durable than the others.
One upside of the Circle of Death mission chain is that if you die and must
restart, you begin the round where you left off. So if you die at the hands of 
the final Alpha Skag, you can stock up on items and face off against him
without having to go through the rest of the cavalcade.

Hills. You must kill them to receive your reward. They are found in the hills
portion of the Arid Hills, although they tend to wander the area and are not
always in the direct center as the waypoint likes to show. They will probably
find you before you find them, leading to an impromptu fight.

| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Moe and Marley are intimidating Alpha Skags that each possess special      |
| elemental properties. Moe is a Fire-based Skag that has a fast, flaming    |
| charge attack and Marley is a Shock-based Skag that spits electrical balls |
| of goo out of his mouth; they also both have elemental shockwave attacks.  |
|                                                                            |
| The tandem duo are almost always together, so you will have to face them   |
| together, plus any other Skag who wants to join in on the fun (it's always |
| a lot): a 2-on-1 handicap match just got a lot harder. The lesser Skags    |
| are good to keep around in case you are crippled and need an easy kill to  |
| initiate Second Wind.                                                      |
|                                                                            |
| If you are unlucky enough to get both Moe and Marley's attention, it does  |
| not matter which one you target first. Moe is the larger of the two and    |
| resistant to Fire-based attacks, so make sure to use any other weapon      |
| type. Marley, of course, is resistant to Shock.                            |
|                                                                            |
| Even though Marley has more health, I find him easier to take down because |
| he is forced to open his mouth for his his electric spit attack. Plus,     |
| killing Marley first makes the fight against Moe easier since your shields |
| won't get depleted as fast.                                                |
|                                                                            |
| This portion of the Arid Hills is filled with tons of boulders and         |
| crevices; if you can find a high enough rock to position yourself onto,    |
| Moe (who only has melee attacks) won't be able to do jack squat and Marley |
| might have a tougher time reaching you with his projectiles. You can have  |
| it real easy if perched way out of reach of the Skag bosses.               |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Moe and Marley each give up a lot of loot and XP, and their deaths will

| I used to hunt skags from the east ridge near the mine. I was working on a |
| new sniper rifle so I could really take 'em down. I never quite finished   |
| and had to stash the parts around so the bandits wouldn't find 'em. If you |
| retrieve the pieces its all yours. I need the Stock, Body, Sight, and      |
| Barrel.                                                                    |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

When it comes to scavenger missions, your waypoint is virtually useless as it
only directs you to the general location of all the parts. You will have to do
some old-fashioned rummaging if you want to find the gun pieces.

Make your way to the bandit camp at the northern point of the Arid Hills and
kill all enemies before trying to search for the four Sniper Rifle parts. Go
up the hill on the east side of the camp to reach the second level. Before you
get to the metal catwalk, enter the building on your left to find the [SNIPER
RIFLE BODY].

 - Sniper Rifle Body: Objective Complete

Next, traverse across the metal walkways and go to the right (north) when it
branches off - you'll discover the [SNIPER RIFLE BARREL] lying on a table.

 - Sniper Rifle Barrel: Objective Complete

Continue west across the walkways until you reach a building on your left. You
can climb to the top of the building using the large gas canister, allowing
you to claim the [SNIPER RIFLE STOCK] up here on the roof.

 - Sniper Rifle Stock: Objective Complete

Now walk west to reach the other side of camp and proceed down the hill as if
you were going back to the entrance. As you slowly descend the ramp, keep
your eyes peeled for the [SNIPER RIFLE SIGHT] discarded in a pile of junk,
next to an old mattress.

 - Sniper Rifle Sight: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Now when you ultimately deliver the mission card to the bounty board, you will
receive the Sniper Rifle (it's always a random Sniper Rifle) along with your
XP rewards.

| You've discovered a defunct Claptrap here. It looks like the bandits were  |
| pretty rough on him. Perhaps there is a Repair Kit nearby?                 |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

The downed Claptrap is found at around the midway point of Sledge's Safehouse.
Talk to him to accept the mission and begin the search for a Repair Kit.
Luckily, it can be found in the previous room, so you won't have to travel
very far.

Go back up the stairs towards the New-U Pole and where you fought the Badass
Bruiser. Standing directly in front of the New-U Pole, turn around and slowly
walk west. Look up at the ceiling near the air vents and you should spot the
[CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT] on top of the ventilation system hanging above the ramp.
Jump and snatch it down from there to retrive the goods.

 - Repair Kit: Objective Complete

Bring the Repair Kit to the Claptrap in the basement and restore him to good
health. Use the Backpack SDU to increase your inventory (up to 18 slots) and
focus on the Claptrap after he gets up. Follow him as he speeds away to a
locked door. The Claptrap opens it, giving you access to the [RED CHEST] and
lockers (which usually contain equipment) inside. Thanks buddy!

| All of the wind turbines are functioning, except for the one in Howling    |
| Defile. For some reason, the rakk always flock over that one, so the whole |

| I'm offering a cash reward to anyone who goes out and shoots all that crap |
| off.                                                                       |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Howling Defile is located at the western end of the Arid Badlands. In order to
get there you must drive past the entrance to the Circle of Death arena and
continue west on that same road. It isn't a separate area from the Arid
Badlands so you'll automatically come up to it.

The damaged wind turbine will be on the right side of the road, behind a Rakk
nest. If you stay far back enough, you can target the turbine without
disturbing the Rakks. Just shoot the wind turbine a few times until you have
removed all of the droppings. There should be no trouble.

 - Droppings removed: 6/6

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The pieces to the Combat Rifle are situated in the cliffside town near the
center of the Arid Badlands. If you drive west past the Zephyr Substation near
the path leading to the Circle of Death, you will come to the northern end of
the town. It doesn't really matter which side of the town you start on; if you
want to sneak through the southern end starting from the base of the hill, be
my guest.

Get off of the road and start across the bridge at the northeast end of the
village. There will be a group of bandits shooting down at you from the huts
stringed along the cliff, but if you duck behind the crates on the bridge you
can take down most of them. Don't forget to snatch the [COMBAT RIFLE STOCK] 
from one of the crates here on the bridge.

 - Combat Rifle Stock: Objective Complete

There are two ramps at the end of the bridge. Take the one pointed downward,
which leads to a single home. Pick up the [COMBAT RIFLE BARREL] which is,
funnily, resting on top of a barrel.

 - Combat Rifle Barrel: Objective Complete

Grab the loot inside the shack and run back up the ramp, then take the other
one leading into the center of the bandit town. There is an intersection at
the top of the ramp: continue northwest through a building and up another ramp
towards a shack in the corner. Inside is a [RED CHEST], while the [COMBAT
RIFLE SIGHT] is found on the ground if you go out and around the building.

 - Combat Rifle Sight: Objective Complete

Return to the fork and take the other route, which brings you southeast. Once
you are under the red tarp, wipe out the enemies and recover the [COMBAT RIFLE
BODY] next to the ammo crate.

 - Combat Rifle Body: Objective Complete

With that, you can proceed back to your vehicle and turn the mission in at the
bounty board.

| then blow them up. Any takers?                                             |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

You might as well head right on back to Headstone Mine after picking up this
mission and get it over with; you just returned from there after sending
Sledge packing, so at least the area layout is fresh in your memory.

Make your way to the first excavation site. With any luck, the Mulciber Mk2
won't be in use (in fact, I think it disappears completely in this side
mission). There will still be a lot of enemies to kill, though. The first fuse
is to be placed on the base of a large support beam; consult your map and
radar for further help (it's near the center of the site).

 - Fuse A placed: Objective Complete

The second fuse spot is just north of the first one. Take a few steps and
place it on the support beam base.

 - Fuse B placed: Objective Complete
 
The third and final fuse is also north of this one, to follow the trend.

 - Fuse C placed: Objective Complete

Make your way to the southwest staircase and proceed to the second level. Go
left and clear out the enemies, then position yourself on the plateau
overlooking the excavation site. Push the detonator here to demolish the
pipeline.

 - Pipeline Destroyed: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

The ensuing explosion also takes out a nice part of Sledge's lair. I am not
sure if you still have access as a result...

Isolated shack... Zephyr Substation... does this sound familiar at all? You
have probably been there several times without knowing it. Drive past Zephyr
Substation and follow the road as if you were going back to Headstone Mine.
The shack is located on this road and is guarded by a Psycho and a Midget
Shotgunner. Run them over and go inside the shack.

There is a hole tunneled in the side of the shack that leads down into a cave,
complete with a Weapon Vendor and a [RED CHEST]. Slay the pair of Mutant

That's your man.

If you have not been to Titan's End before, it is a huge archeological dig
site at the western end of the Arid Badlands. Unfortunately, bandits have
sprung up and took the place over in a way. Your destination is a small
alcove at the south side of Titan's End. Either cut through the camp or weave
your way around until you reach the alcove.

From the entrance to the alcove, continue south through the gate. Upon closer
inspection of the map, you'll notice an elevated portion on the south end of
the alcove. Once through the gate, walk alongside the cliff and climb up the
rocky outcropping to a tent containing a [RED CHEST] and the first [BOX OF
CIGARS].

The other two cigar boxes are in the alcove below, but now you have an awesome
vantage point which allows you to snipe all the bandits roaming around. Also,
falling down into the alcove (or safely going back the way you came) triggers
the appearance of some Skags, which leads to a bandit/Skag war.

After the show, the likely survivors are the Bruiser and Badass Psycho. Watch
out for the Badass Psycho as he chases after you and plug a few rounds into
his head, then pick off the other stragglers. The final [2 BOXES OF CIGARS]
are down here in the alcove.

 - Box of Cigars: 3/3

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Titan's End is the westernmost region in the Arid Badlands - only the gate to
the Dahl Headlands is farther west. You likely have not explored the area yet,
so it will probably be unfamiliar territory. Fortunately, it isn't very large
and is only composed of a decently-sized bandit camp.

If you follow the main road west, you'll come to a Catch-A-Ride garage and the
Titan's End New-U Station. Unsurprisingly, the bandit camp in Titan's End
contains a lot of bandits; mostly around Level 14 or 15. At this stage in the
game they should be fodder.

Dismount and enter the gate farthest from the garage; the first [ARCHEOLOGIST
SKULL] is sticking right out of the gate. Now hug the wall and proceed west,
climbing the tower at the far west end. Here is your next [ARCHEOLOGIST
SKULL]. Leap from the tower and walk southwest past the large skeleton
barrier.

Stay on the outer perimeter of the camp as you continue south, then southeast
around the edge of the camp. Along the way, you should find the third
[ARCHEOLOGIST SKULL] on a pike sticking out of a hut. A little ways southeast
is another watchtower with another [ARCHEOLOGIST SKULL] on top. From the ramp
leading up to the tower, go northeast to cut into the camp. There is an
[ARCHEOLOGIST SKULL] on the metal plank and another [ARCHEOLOGIST SKULL] not
five feet in front. As a bonus, there is a [RED CHEST] inside the house next
to the pair of skulls.

That should be six out of ten skulls. Continue across the metal walkway to the
other side of camp. An [ARCHEOLOGIST SKULL] is leaning against the southeast
hut; a Badass Bruiser usually lives in there. Now spin back around and slide
down into the pit underneath the metal walkway. Down here you will find the
eighth [ARCHEOLOGIST SKULL] and another [RED CHEST].

Back at the southeast hut, walk north alongside the scrap metal wall to come
to an [ARCHEOLOGIST SKULL] near a tall metal beam. The final [ARCHEOLOGIST
SKULL] is resting alongside part of the giant skeleton near the center of
camp.

If at any point you need help finding the skulls, then use your waypoint. This
mission is unlike the scavenger weapons in that the waypoint does indeed
point you directly towards the items in question.

 - Skulls removed: 10/10
 - TURN IN!

| Truly, Skagzilla is a marvel of adaptation and survival. So, I want you to |

|____________________________________________________________________________|

You know you're in for a challenge you when you are asked to bring down a
beast with the title "Skagzilla". You know that's one big bone you're pickin'
with. You must lure the monster out of its lair with bait; bait that can be
stolen from a bandit outpost on the west side of the Dahl Headlands.

Drive to that section of the plain and run over any enemy that gets in your
way - there's only about five residents. Next, gather the roasted [SKAGZILLA
BAT] hanging over the fire. What's strange is that the bait looks like cooked
Skag. I guess Skagzilla has cannibalistic tendencies...

 - Skagzilla Bait: Objective Complete

Your next destination is right next to the bandit outpost. Skagzilla's den is
beyond the rock wall, so the only way to get over the wall is to cross the
nearby bridge. Drive over to the bridge, disembark, and begin walking over
until you drop into the den, which resembles a gladiator-style arena more than
anything. Ignore the brutal roars emanating from the cave as you approach the
entrance and place the bait on the spike.

Here he comes!

| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Skagzilla is without a doubt the king of all Skags, based on size alone.   |
| He towers over you and can strike fear into the hearts of many, but        |
| Skagzilla is manageable despite all his scare tactics. The first thing you |
| should know is that while Fire weapons work best on flesh like regular ol' |
| Skags, Skagzilla is resistant to all elements.                             |
|                                                                            |
| The boss has five main attacks. First is his melee attack, which is only   |
| used if you are directly next to him. Second, he has a jumping attack that |
| is mainly used to catch up with you if you are far away, but Skagzilla     |
| creates an earthquake when he lands; jump in the air when he lands to      |
| avoid it. Skagzilla can also charge at you, which is preceded by the boss  |
| standing still and stamping his foot like he's building momentum.          |
|                                                                            |
| Skagzilla also uses two projectile attacks. The first is a rapid Shock     |
| spit attack that can be hard to dodge due to how fast he spits at you. It  |
| can deplete your shields quickly like any Shock-based attack, so keep your |
| guard up and run away if your shield gets too low. Finally, Skagzilla also |
| uses a long-range laser beam attack. He sweeps from side to side to cover  |
| a lot of ground, but it's actually easiest to avoid by standing next to    |
| either side of his face.                                                   |
|                                                                            |
| Unlike normal Skags, Skagzilla isn't one to show off and won't stand back  |
| and roar at you for show. That means the best (and really only) time to    |
| score critical hits is when he is using his laser beam attack. Like I said |
| before, you can avoid the beam if you approach Skagzilla's head and stand  |
| directly on either side of it - he doesn't move until the attack ends so   |
| you'll be completely safe while the attack is going on. Being so close is  |
| also a great chance to score critical hits with a powerful Shotgun.        |
|                                                                            |
| All in all, Skagzilla is pretty easy despite his appearance. Even though   |
| he is Level 21, you can easily slay the beast at the same level. The arena |
| may not offer any cover, but it's huge and the numerous Skag piles may     |
| come in handy if you're looking for ammo or Instant Health Vials.          |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Skagzilla killed: Objective Complete

Skagzilla usually drops some good loot. I'm not sure if it happens in every
first playthrough, but I scored an Explosive Artifact from the boss. A metal
panel on the outer edge of the den falls over, granting you escape from the
area.

Return to your vehicle and drive back to Ernest at the northeast hill. He
rewards you with Whitting's Elephant Gun, which is technically a Sniper Rifle
but doesn't really resemble one at first: it's powerful as hell with an
increase in Damage and Critical Hit Damage, but has no zoom. It is definitely
an interesting and sometimes useful weapon choice.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The Dahl Headlands is a prime source of fuel, and there are three fuel tanks
located in the region that contain a large supply of the product. Your goal is
to cut off the fuel supply to the bandits by destroying the tanks. The first
fuel tank is marked on your map and can be found near the front of the
Ludicrous Speedway. 

Hop in a Runner and drive west as if you were returning to Skagzilla's den,
but hang a left and proceed south towards the race track. Park near the
garage and open the door to the building. The speedway is infested with
Scythids, and you'll be fighting Scythid Crawlers and Desert Scythids. Even
though they are Level 20, Scythids are very weak and the Scythid Crawlers in
particular can be dispatched with a single melee blow.

Snoop around the building to encounter a gruesome sight; walk out the back
exit to encounter more Scythids, including a Giant Scythid. Exterminate the
buggers and then open fire on the Jakobs fuel tank positioned in the far
corner of the yard.

Since you're already here, it wouldn't hurt to jump in and quickly complete
the "Death Race Pandora" sidequest. But feel free to hold it off if you wish.

The second fuel tank is ways away, at the northwest point of the headlands.
It is located in the back of a small bandit camp, and even though you cannot
progress inside the camp with your Runner, the tank is positioned in a way
where you can shoot rockets at it from the front gate. But I suggest you go
inside the camp anyways to earn XP killing bandits, pick up stuff, and to loot
the [2 RED CHESTS] in the back.

Lastly, drive to the mountain in the dead center of the plain to track down
the third and final fuel tank. Once again, the tank is located in a miniature
bandit camp and once again, you can destroy the tank from the luxury of your
Rocket Launcher Runner.

However, I do not recommend that method due to the resident Badass Bruiser,
who is capable of demolishing your vehicle in a hurry. Get out, take cover and
eliminate him along with the other bandits before targeting the fuel tank.
There is a Catch-A-Ride Station nearby if your vehicle does get totaled during
the firefight.

| more holes than Swiss cheese. I think the system is salvageable, I just    |
| need somebody to close a few valves for me. I'd do it myself, but I'm      |
| afraid there'd soon be holes in me, too!                                   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

More fuel-related activities goin' down here. Instead of cutting off the
bandit's fuel supply, this time you have to turn on Lucky's fuel sources.
There are three damaged fuel valves that need to be turned on in order to get
the stuff running again.

The first one is located at the northernmost point of the Dahl Headlands. Get
out of your vehicle when you reach the line of boulders and squeeze through
towards the tainted spring. Scythids emerge from the murky waters and begin
attacking. Feel free to move on past them and turn the fuel valve or sit
around and punch each one to death.

Since you're in the neighborhood, take a ride to the edge of the cliff a few
yards away and stop at the guard rail. If you follow the cliffside to the far
east end you'll stumble upon a hidden walkway. The ramp takes you to a tiny
hut etched out of the side of the cliff. What kind of daredevil would live on
the side of a cliff? Well, there isn't anything here aside from a couple lock
boxes, but I thought it's interesting enough to warrant a mention.

Your travels now take you to the bandit camp where you found the Skagzilla
Bait. For those who forgot or never got around to the quest, this small camp
is on the west side of the Dahl Headlands and next to Skagzilla's den. Blast
the bandits and Bruisers, then close off the valve.

You won't have to go far to find the last fuel valve; it is in the settlement
north of your location. Drive up to Devil's Gate Hill and walk up to the
fuel pipe. The valve is behind a metal fence, forcing you to take the long
route. If you look beyond the valve, you'll spot a boulder that is just as
high as the fence. Walk behind the boulder to find a stepping stone, then hop
to the top and leap over the fence. Now you can close off the valve.

 - Valves closed: 3/3

Once again, this is a scavenger hunt featuring Revolver parts that, when
fully assembled, create a random Revolver that you can keep. The parts can be
found at the Devil's Gate Hill, which is on the west end of the Dahl Headlands
and north of Skagzilla's den.

Approach from the south and trudge up the to the Catch-A-Ride Station. Follow
the east wall until it opens up, then begin climbing on the rocks outside of
the settlement. Look for a rusty shell of a Runner and climb on top of the
ruined vehicle. Inside the cockpit is the [REVOLVER BARREL].

 - Revolver Barrel: Objective Complete

Now begin your search inside the settlement. The next gun piece isn't very far
away; in fact, the [REVOLVER BODY] is resting on the floor of the garage next 
to the Catch-A-Ride Station.

 - Revolver Body: Objective Complete

Next, climb to the top of Devil's Gate Hill and step on top of the roof of the
garage you were just inside. From the garage roof, look to your left at the
metal tower and leap onto the platform attached to the tower. Pick up the
[REVOLVER CYLINDER] and jump back to the roof.

 - Revolver Cylinder: Objective Complete

The final Revolver part is near the fuel valve from the side mission "Well
There's Your Problem Right There". Approach the large boulder behind the
fenced-in fuel valve and jump to the top. From here, you can scale the fence
to reach the valve. However, hop onto the piece of sheet metal resting on the
corner of the fence and grab the [REVOLVER SIGHT]. Voila!

| There's an old race track in the Dahl Headland, called the Ludicrous       |
| Speedway. It was great in its day, but it's been abandoned since the       |
| corporation pulled out. I'm thinking of reopening the place, but there's a |
| catch. It's been overrun with vermin. I need someone to go out there and   |
| kill all the bugs.                                                         |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Mosey on down to the Ludicrous Speedway at any time after picking up this
mission from the bounty board. The place is overrun with icky Scythids, and
it is up to you to clear them off of the race track to keep the customers
coming.

50 may seem like a lot of enemies, but you have the luxury of running down the
suckers with your Runner. Most of the common baddies like Scythid Crawlers
won't do much, but bigger creatures like Badass Poison Scythids and Badass
Fire Crawlers can put a dent into your Runner, so pay attention to your
vehicle's health when on your killing spree. If it ever gets low, get out and
resume fighting on foot until the health bar refills on its own.

It's time consuming, but overall really easy. Do a few laps around the track
as you kill any Scythid that makes its presence known. This method will also
help when going for the "Speedy McSpeederton" Achievement, which is earned by
finishing a lap around the race track in under 31 seconds.

 - Scythid killed: 50/50
 - TURN IN!

Also, about the Achievement: even though you must complete a lap under 31
seconds, there will be no timer or any indication that you have begun a race
on your HUD. The game keeps track of your time internally and you begin
getting timed the second you drive under the banner attached to the building
at the start of the track. 

To complete a lap under 31 seconds, make sure to study the course and utilize
its shortcuts. The best shortcut to use is at the south end of the track. At
the start, drive forward and continue south, taking the left path.

When you enter the cave, hug the left wall. A path opens sharply to the left
just before reaching a ramp in the middle of the cave. Take this path and
boost off the huge jump to cut off a lot of time. From here, follow the track
past the other side of the building. If your time is good enough for the
Achievement, it should pop up after passing the building and reaching the
start of the course.

|                                                                            |
| This is Tannis. I was digging in the Dahl Headland, and came very close to |
| uncovering an Elemental Artifact, most likely from the Vault. I was forced |
| to abandon the dig when my brain-dead team quit. They said they saw        |
| ghosts, or Bigfoot, or something. If you're someone who isn't a            |
| superstitious dolt, I invite you to recover the artifact for yourself.     |
| Here's the freight lift code so you can access the site.                   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Select the mission and follow it on your map to the mountain in the center of
the Dahl Headlands. Drive up the hill to the metal planks leading to the
excavation site. You can shoot down the first group of bandits in the huts
next to the walkways, but after that you'll have to continue on foot.

Follow the walkway to an elevator at the far end. Now you will be stopped by
a multitude of bandits before you can ride the elevator, so try and find some
cover behind the crates or run back towards your vehicle. When you are ready,
stand in the elevator and descend down the mine shaft.

As soon as you hit rock bottom, a Badass Psycho and a Bruiser , along with
some standard Bandit Thugs, run around the corner. Finish them off and use the
two vendors to restock supplies. Proceed down the passage towards the Haunted
Excavation. It's a little eerie, but nothing seems particularly strange when
you first enter the site aside from a few tremors.

When you approach the altar at the end, however, ghastly enemies appear out of
thin air... the so-called "Ghosts of the Vault"! These are Guardian enemies,
and they can be a huge pain. Guardians are fast-paced enemies that can float
in the air and teleport, and they attack with long energy swords. Their weak
points are their heads, but targeting can prove difficult due to their oddly
disproportionate craniums (dey got tiny heads).

You are ambushed by two Guardian Wraiths and a Guardian Spectre. Both types of
monsters carry shields that can be tough to take down, so sticking to a Shock-
based weapon is the way to go. The good news is that Guardians typically have
very low health and can be easily dispatched once their shields are lowered.
The Guardian Spectre is larger and has more health than the Wraiths.

After the scuffle, go towards the altar to find the Elemental Artifact; this
is also where you can turn the mission in.

 - Elemental Artifact found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

You receive an Explosive Artifact for your troubles, which can be equipped to
give your Action Skill Explosive elemental qualities. Since you probably have
more than one Elemental Artifacts, now is a good time to point out that you
can switch between them in the Skills menu. Also, make sure to crack open the
[RED CHEST] next to the altar before heading out.

This should be the first side mission you complete (it can even be completed
before the story mission "Power to the People". This poor Claptrap is found
lying next to the New Haven bounty board at the north side of the city. After
picking up the mission, enter the back alley next to Marcus' shop.

On the right is a red dumpster pressed against the side of the building south
of the weapons shop. Use this to reach the roof, then look south to spot the
[CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT] leaning on a balcony. From the side of the roof you
should be able to leap onto the balcony and pick up the kit.

Now that you have access to the Fast Travel Network, a quest like this becomes
embarrassingly easy. From the nearest New-U Station, warp to Fyrestone and
hoof it to T.K.'s Claim. Scooter knows something is fishy with T.K.'s call,
and his suspicions are confirmed as soon as you step foot in his house.

If it's any consolation, at least there's a [RED CHEST] on the back porch. You
are ambushed by a mob of Psychos as you exit the house; the likely culprits
behind T.K. Baha's untimely demise. Exact revenge and return to Scooter with
the unfortunate news.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Scooter's car parts are all located in the Rust Commons West; enter the area
from the southeast gate in New Haven. At the junction, head right up the hill
and take out the bandit/Rakk combination. Stay to the right and enter the junk
tunnel, which takes you to a bandit camp.

These Level 20-22 bandit-type enemies have stolen Scooter's vehicle parts and
scattered them around the village. This camp is not only packed with bandits,
but there is also heavy security in the form of Level 21 Gatling Turrets.
These guns are stationed high and low, so watch for the red laser sights
bouncing back and forth across the village.

Do a lap around the village and take out all the bandits and Gatling Turrets.
Now that the coast is clear, your scavenger hunt will be much easier. The
first [FRONT FENDER] is at the north end of the camp, underneath the neon
billboard. 

Head further north to run into a [REAR FENDER] lying up against a sheet metal
shack next to a locker. Open the [SILVER CHEST] behind you, then run south to
find a [FUEL CELL] against one of the support beams to the pipeline above.
From here, go immediately southwest to the next support beam; jump on the
base, then leap onto the trailer in the middle of the camp. Here you'll find
the second [REAR FENDER].

 - Rear fender: 2/2

From up here, look around and you'll spot another car part nearby, against a
pile of cargo containers. Fall down and pick up the [FRONT FENDER].

 - Front fender: 2/2

Lastly, the second [FUEL CELL] is west of here. Pick it up out of the pool and
dry it off.

 - Fuel cell: 2/2

The final piece is the Rusty Engine, and it is a tad hard to find. Continue
southwest towards the transition gate to Crazy Earl's Scrapyard. Facing the
gate, turn around and walk back towards the shipping containers. Jump on the
right side of the one sticking out of the ground, then jump to the next to
spot the [RUSTY ENGINE].

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Once again, talk to Scooter for this job. To fix the sewage problem, you need
to destroy the blockage at the two pipes in the Rust Commons Sump Station.
Note: this is not the sewage plant you passed through on your trip to Tannis'
lab. Proceed towards the sump station from the Cesspool and go past the
Cesspool arena to eventually reach it.

A looping rock wall prevents access from any other direction than the west,
so head in from the west end and begin slaying folks. Buncha Level 20-21
bandits here, so there are no surprises waiting for you. Clear the area out
and look for objects to loot as always.

Walk onto the dock at the east side and look up at the side of the station.
There are two blocked pipes that are glowing green, signifying your target at
hand. Shoot the gunk clogging each pipe, beginning with the one on the left.

 - Pipe 1 clear: Objective Complete
 
Now do the same with the one on the right. A couple bullets should do the
trick.

This bounty board mission requires you to hike back to the Arid Badlands in
order to take down a mutant monster rakk. Warp to Fyrestone and work your way
from there; going west from the Zephyr Substation towards the Lost Cave. There
is a hilltop path not too far from Bruce McClane's shack. Drive up the hill to
find a strange ritualistic setup.

There are three torches surrounding the main tree. Press X next to the first
torch to light it.

 - 1st torch lit: Objective Complete

Do the same with the second one.

 - 2nd torch lit: Objective Complete

...and the third.

 - 3rd torch lit: Objective Complete

Lighting all three torches will summon Mothrakk, the monster rakk boss.
Clearly a reference to Mothra of Godzilla fame.

| Even though you have your Runner, it won't be of much use since Mothrakk   |
| stays way up in the sky and is out of reach of your turret. You must fight |
| this beast on foot with traditional weaponry, so I hope you brought a      |
| Sniper Rifle or at least a gun with a weapon zoom. An automatic weapon     |
| such as an SMG or Combat Rifle is probably better than a Sniper Rifle, and |
| an added Weapon Zoom perk is just the cherry on top. Heck, I managed to    |
| slay her once by jumping in the air and shooting with a powerful Shotgun.  |
|                                                                            |
| As soon as you see the boss float over the mountainside, immediately dash  |
| down the hill towards the Catch-A-Ride Station. This garage provides great |
| cover from Mothrakk's meteor attack. Mothrakk only has one attack, but it  |
| is a doozy: all the boss does is circle overhead while raining fireballs   |
| down on you. Which is why some sort of shelter is key here.                |
|                                                                            |
| Mothrakk has a pretty short attention span, so after several seconds of    |
| inactivity she will increase her flight path and begin flying in much      |
| larger circles. When you cannot see or hear any more fireballs, peek out   |

| The boss is a surprisingly high level (compared to the mission's level)    |
| and is also resistant to the three main elements, so you have no advantage |
| over Mothrakk and this fight will likely consume a lot of time, ammo, and  |
| energy. Shoot and hide. That's the name of the game here.                  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Mothrakk killed: Objective Complete

Another downside to the Mothrakk boss fight is that she scatters her loot when
killed, which means you'll have to comb the area for the goods. You receive
The Blister when you hand in the mission at the New Haven bounty board; a
slightly weaker Shotgun that makes up for it with destructive Corrosive
properties and an awesome Weapon Zoom.

| Corrosive Elemental Artifacts allow you to customize your skills with the  |

| them apart. Watch out for the bandits that have taken over the cave.       |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

This mission is identical to the "Shock Crystal Harvest" way back when you
were out venturing through the Lost Cave. The premise is the same, at least,
but the challenges will be greater.

Tetanus Warren - where your excavation takes place - is at the northwestern
end of New Haven. Start by prowling through the junkyard north of town. You
may stumble across a conspicuously-placed storage container with a computer
terminal at the north end of New Haven. You cannot get inside, and won't for
a long while.

The rest of the northern junkyard is home to a tribe of Psychos. There is one
small camp in particular that contains several Bandit Raiders, so watch out
that you don't accidentally wander in their territory. You'll also notice that
the junkyard is under heavy Scythid infestation. Make sure to locate the
[SILVER CHEST] in the middle of the junkyard, underneath a large metal panel.

The first portion of Tetanus Warren is a straight line and very easy to
navigate, but the second half branches off and can get confusing. This quest
shouldn't take you as long as "Shock Crystal Harvest" because Tetanus Warren
is an incredibly small area compared to the Lost Cave.

The Corrosive Crystal Clusters are easy to spot because they glow green and 
create loud, sludge-like noises. The first batch of [5 CORROSIVE CRYSTALS] are 
up the path and on your left. Impossible to miss. You've already got your
first five crystals.

As you run towards the next two sets, [10 CORROSIVE CRYSTALS], Spiderantlings
pop out of the ground and ambush you. Defeat them and destroy both crystal
bunches to bring your total up to 15/50. There are three more sets for a total
of [15 CORROSIVE CRYSTALS] at the junction, which means you'll be up to 30/50
crystals once you survive the Badass Elemental Spiderant and Spiderantlings
that show up.

Now that you are presented with a choice, you must make a decision on which
way to go. First, head to the left past the wounded Claptrap (talk to him and
take the mission, of course) and face off against the Badass Bruiser and
other bandits. There may not be any Corrosive Crystals here, but you can find
a [RED CHEST] by climbing onto the roofs of the buildings.

Return to the fork and make a right this time. Wade through the waters and
blast the two bunches of [10 CORROSIVE CRYSTALS] to bring your total up to
40/50. Fight the various Scythids in the area and turn back since up ahead is 
a dead end. Now take the central route.

Go past the "PIS OFF" sign towards the New-U Pole. Kill the Bruiser and the
patrolling bandits, then hang a right at the next fork. Open the [RED CHEST]
on the roof, then return to the fork and go left this time. Collect the
[5 CORROSIVE CRYSTALS] before entering the bandit outpost. There's another
Badass Bruiser inside, but thankfully he only carries a Combat Rifle.

The final few clusters of [5 CORROSIVE CRYSTALS] are in the alcove to your
left; there are a few extra batches in case you missed any from before (as
well as yet another [RED CHEST]).

 - Corrosive Crystals: 50/50
 - TURN IN!

Now of course you can turn back now that the mission is complete, but Tetanus
Warren has not been fully explored. I'll be covering the rest of the area in
the "King Tossing" side mission, so go check it out if you're interested in
spelunking a bit more.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The Claptrap in question is at the main junction in the Tetanus Warren; he is
lying on the side of the road near the western pathway. Speak with him, then
set off on your quest for the Repair Kit.

The Repair Kit is at the bandit camp north of the fork. If you take the middle
pathway and keep going straight, you will come to the camp. The waypoint is
misleading because it points you to the direction of the dining area on the
right, but the Repair Kit is actually high above. Here's how to reach it:

From the dining area, walk northeast and stay on the upper walkway. From here,
step onto the red tarp and use it to jump onto the next red tarp across the
way (this jump can be tricky to make). From here, walk west across the planks
and climb onto the metal overhang, then pick up the [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT].

 - Repair Kit: Objective Complete

Bring it back to the Claptrap and patch the lil' dude up. Your Backpack SDU
now allows you to carry up to 24 items! Unfortunately, the Claptrap does not
lead you to a secret loot room like some of the others...

| reward for someone to end his terrible reign.                              |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

King Wee Wee's lair is in the depths of the Tetanus Warren, past the point of
Corrosive Crystal harvesting. To get there, head to the bandit camp up north
and proceed east through the campsite after killing everyone. After killing a
couple Psychos and Bandit Raiders, the gate leading into King Wee Wee's
domain lowers for you.

| King Wee Wee is one of the game's easier bosses because as a human boss,   |
| he does not have a shield. Well, actually he does. Kinda. King Wee Wee     |
| does not use his shield for defensive purposes, so you never have to worry |
| about lowering it. In fact, the boss uses the shield to attack!            |
|                                                                            |
| The boss mainly runs around and tries to hack away with his buzz saw, or   |
| throw it at you if you are too far away. But if you see King Wee Wee raise |
| his purple shield in the air, then get the hell away. Strange energy balls |
| shoot out of the shield and create ginormous shockwaves on the ground. It  |
| can damage you repeatedly if you are in the epicenter, so try and get away |
| from it if you can.                                                        |

| Despite his damaging attack, King Wee Wee is really easy. Since he is only |
| Level 22 and does not have a shield, you can drain his health in a snap    |
| with any powerful gun. Just try to stick with a gun with some range,       |
| because you'll want to stay away from the king and his shield attack.      |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - King Wee Wee killed: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

King Wee Wee drops his trusty shield, the [WEE WEE SUPER BOOSTER], upon
defeat. This is a unique shield: even though it has low Capacity compared to
current shields (~185-205) and a low Recharge Rate, it actually has the
ability to regenerate your health over time! It is a gamble, since you are
sacrificing shield quality for regenerative properties, but it's kinda hard to
turn down. As a bonus, go inside King Wee Wee's house to find a [RED CHEST]. 

Follow the hill next to King Wee Wee's house to reach a shortcut taking you
back to the main junction. Now you can leave Tetanus Warren. The Spy is an
SMG given to you as a reward when returning to the bounty board... that isn't
really that special of a gun at all. Oh well.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Warp to the Outeryard in the Rust Commons West to get this mission started.
Grab a vehicle and drive south underneath the overpass. You can explore the
two buildings on either side of the overpass, but there isn't anything
noteworthy inside.

You'll come to the Aqueduct Encampment on the other side of the overpass. On
your left is the entrance to the Rust Commons East, for future reference. Now
on the right is a junkyard bandit camp and the location of the five SMG parts.
First, enter the camp on foot and begin attacking everyone. Mainly Psychos and
some other bandit types; there's plenty of cover in the form of large storage
containers. Enemies worth noting are the Badass Raider and Badass Psycho. 

The west side of the bandit camp is where you'll find the next Circle of Death
arena, but you can not participate yet. You can at least use the Med and Ammo
Vendors at the arena gate. From the west side of camp, climb on the hill
leading north and hug the wall on the right. Follow the walkway onto the roof
of the nearby building, then look over the edge and drop down on the lower
portion of the roof for the [SMG BODY].

 - SMG Body: Objective Complete

Time for a little platforming. From your location, walk east and jump from the
roof onto the pillar, then onto the metal awning straight ahead. The [SMG
SIGHT] is found here, on top of a cot.

 - SMG Sight: Objective Complete

If you look out towards the east side of camp, you can probably spot the next
SMG part on top of a shipping container. Drop down onto the ground and head
that way. You can climb on top of the container using the piles of junk
nearby. Claim the [SMG BARREL].

 - SMG Barrel: Objective Complete

The final piece is on ground level and not that hard to find. Proceed back
to the other end of the area. Stop in front of the building that contained the
SMG Body and look for the crate with the green tarp on it. Take a peek inside
the tire next to the crate to spot the [SMG MAGAZINE].

| This is Patricia Tannis, calling for anyone with two brain cells to rub    |

| I've decided I want them back. Listen to each one, and your ECHO device    |

|____________________________________________________________________________|

My oh my, look at that cash reward! This is a good mission for anyone who
still isn't familiar with the layout of the Rust Commons West, since you'll
be all over the place looking for the Data Recorders. The first Data Recorder
is at the north end of the area, so you may want to warp to the Underpass from
your current whereabouts.

This Data Recorder can be tough to nab because it is in Rakkinishu territory;
this powerful boss is Level 25 and may be out of your reach, so picking a
fight with this uber-Rakk might be a bad idea. You'll have to get in and get
out quick. However, since there is no mission specifically for Rakkinishu, I
have nowhere else to include the boss strategy but here. If you are feeling
froggy, then try taking him on.


.------------------.
| BOSS: Rakkinishu |_________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 25              Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Rakkinishu is much more confrontational than Mothrakk and won't sit back   |
| and let you blast him to smithereens. The boss lives at the north end of   |
| the Rust Commons West and will become disturbed if you approach the area   |
| and stay for more than just a few seconds. The boss only has one attack:   |
| he will breathe a stream of fire down on you. Unlike the meteors that      |
| Mothrakk used, Rakkinishu uses a stream of flames that can burn you alive. |
|                                                                            |
| Make sure to stay inside one of the two huts near Rakkinishu. The boss's   |
| flame attack usually cannot penetrate the walls of the huts and you should |
| be fine for the most part. Stay inside, then peek out and take a few shots |
| before stepping back in. It's essentially the same strategy as Mothrakk,   |
| but you are allowed to use mid-range and even close-range weapons in this  |
| fight because Rakkinishu likes to swoop down real low. Even though you can |
| drive a vehicle on the premises, I wouldn't fight the boss with a Runner.  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Drive over to the two cabins on the edge of the cliff and run over to the box 
between both buildings. Quickly pick up the [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] and jump
back in your Runner before the flames of Rakkinishu rain down upon your candy
ass. Or you can man up and use the strategy above to put an end to the beast.
Your choice (Rakkinishu leaves behind the [CRACKED SASH], a Shield with an
extraordinarily high Recharge Rate).

 - Journal Day 224: Objective Complete

Back in the Runner, drive far, far away from Rakkinishu territory. Drive
towards the main bridge and park just before crossing it. Kill the Badass
Psycho (he's Level 25, so watch out) living in the tiny shack and open the
[RED CHEST] in the campsite.

Now cross the bridge in your vehicle and follow the road down into the sewage
runoff below. Continue south towards the sewage plant nearby: the location of
the second Data Recorder.

The place is crawling with bandits, but there is a ton of space to maneuver
around and a lot of places to hide. There are also numerous ammo crates to
help replenish your ammunition count. Again, it's just your standard bandit
enemies, although you may find a Badass Raider. The [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] is
on the southern platform of the sewage plant, on top of a crate. Also make
sure to climb to the top floor of the plant for a [RED CHEST].

 - Journal Day 321: Objective Complete

You won't have to go far for the next Data Recorder. Continue southwest
towards a Rakk nest, then stop and eliminate them. Get out and walk alongside
the waters towards a small shelter on the east coast. The [TANNIS JOURNAL
ENTRY] is inside, clinging on the wall.

 - Journal Day 457: Objective Complete

The next Data Recorder is all the way on the other end of the map. Either
warp to the Outeryard or drive to the southern end of the Rust Commons West if
you haven't located the New-U Station yet. From the Catch-A-Ride garage here,
you'll want to walk northeast towards the bandit watch tower. Kill the bandits
and Bruisers on the ground, then blast the Gatling Turret stationed at the top
of the tower. The [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] is at the top of the stairs.

 - Journal Day 481: Objective Complete

From here, head north under the archway and slay the hanging Rakks. You will
make your way to another watch tower at the corner of the road; run up the
stairs as the Spiderants crawl from the earth and pick them off from the top
of the tower. Also open the [SILVER CHEST] up here.

Proceed northwest, following the trail, to reach a bandit encampment east of
the Rust Commons Sump Station. Fight your way through the horde of opponents
and pick up the [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] once the dust settles.

 - Journal Day 493: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Feel free to raid the bandit warehouse north of the Sump Station and steal the
[2 SILVER CHESTS] inside. Otherwise, return to the New Haven bounty board and
turn the mission in.

Marcus Kincaid offers you a three-mission chain after completing "Power to the
People". Enter his shop and talk to him to receive this first quest. The
Weapon Shipment Invoice Marcus wants you to get is in the Outeryard. You have
likely been here many times, but if not, it can be found near the central
region of the Rust Commons West (also where you collect the car parts for
Scooter).

The bandits inside the yard are all around Level 21, so they should be easy
pickings if you waited this long in order to start the mission. After you have
killed every living thing in the Outeryard, look for the [WEAPON SHIPMENT
INVOICE] on a table near the trailer in the middle of the yard.

 - Weapon Shipment Invoice: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Now when you hand it over to Marcus, the mission will be complete and you can
take up his next favor.

| I believe that One-Eyed Jack is storing a recent ammo shipment in his      |
| warehouse. We can't have that! When there's too much supply, there's no    |
| demand. Prices go down, and nobody profits. So, I want you to go to the    |
| warehouse and trigger a little "market correction" by destroying the ammo  |
| dumps. You'll need explosives or elemental weapons, which are, of course,  |
| available at any of my stores for a reasonable price!                      |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Fast Travel back to the Outeryard and work your way up north. One-Eyed Jack's
warehouse is north of the Rust Commons Sump Station, and you must pass through
a bandit camp to get there. From the Catch-A-Ride Station at the Outeryard, go
northeast towards the watch tower. Drive north through Rakk and Spiderant
territory to reach the bandit camp on your right.

Either ignore the bandits at the camp or stop and fight them all. Your main
destination is the warehouse northwest of this camp, so drive up the hill and
park your Runner near the edge of the region.

Clear out the majority of the area before you go hunting for the Ammo Dumps,
just so things don't get too out of hand. The first Ammo Dump is located at
the southeast end of the warehouse camp, near where you likely parked. Even
though Marcus claims that you can only destroy the ammo crates with explosives
or elemental weapons, this is not true. Pour enough bullets into one and it
will blow up eventually. Whether this is an easier alternative is up to you...

There are two more Ammo Dumps inside the actual warehouse, bringing your total
up to 3/6. Head across from the warehouse towards the building to spot the
fourth Ammo Dump on the roof.

The final two Ammo Dumps are up on the hill overlooking the warehouse. Climb
the hill and approach the building in the corner; the garage door opens up to
reveal one or two enemies. Send the two boxes to kingdom come to wrap this
job up.

 - Ammo Dumps destroyed: 6/6
 - TURN IN!

After completing this mission, the side mission "Jack's Other Eye" becomes
available at Helena Pierce's office. Wrap up the final Marcus mission before
moving on to that one.

| While you're at it, destroy One-Eyed Jack's weapon caches. There is too    |
| much of my competitor's product out there! We'll show them what happens    |
| when they try to cut out the middle man!                                   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

You may experience a case of deja vu, because the goals in this mission are
nearly identical to the previous: destroying more crates! While you are
disposing of Weapon Caches rather than Ammo Dumps, the caches are in the form
of wooden crates just like in the last mission. You can find them south of the
Outeryard, at another warehouse.

Head over to the warehouse just before going underneath the overpass and park
on the side of the road. Get out and walk to the right towards the building,
shooting down the bandits that emerge from the huts. There are two Weapon
Caches outside here, so destroy both before entering the building. Climb the
stairs and cross the bridge to the other side of the road.

The remaining caches are on this side of the road, in the little outpost.
First off, shoot the Weapon Cache right after stepping off the bridge and then
enter the building to find the fourth Weapon Cache. Exit into the outpost and
slay the enemies present before targeting the final two Weapon Caches.

 - Caches destroyed: Objective Complete

Lastly, the evidence needed to draw your conclusions is found here in the
outpost, in the form of two empty Torgue crates. Inspect one of them.

 - Evidence found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

From here, continue south to eventually reach the Aqueduct Encampment New-U
Pole. From here, you can access a Med and Ammo Vendors, as well as a Catch-A-
Ride Station. There is no New-U Station here, however, so you'll have to go
back to the Outeryard in order to Fast Travel to Marcus Kincaid's store at New
Haven.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Looks like your, ahem, "investigative journalism" has made One-Eyed Jack a
little peeved off. Now that he's threatening to slaughter innocent townsfolk,
it's probably a good time to put an end to his madness.

One-Eyed Jack can be found at the warehouse north of the Rust Commons Sump
Station - the same place where you trashed his Ammo Dumps. Head on over in a
vehicle (important!) and Mr. Jack should walk out of one of the houses.

| Like King Wee Wee before, it is hard to consider One-Eyed Jack a true      |
| boss. Yes, he is more powerful than your average numbskull bandit, but he  |
| should not put up much of a fight. If anything, his army of bandit friends |
| are more problematic than the leader himself.                              |
|                                                                            |
| One-Eyed Jack carries a powerful Revolver called the Madjack, which has a  |
| very high Fire Rate and even has bullets that ricochet off of surfaces!    |
| The bullets "slither" through the air like a sidewinder, making them extra |
| hard to dodge. There's plenty of crates to duck behind and the warehouse   |
| is a good place to hide if your shields need recharging.                   |
|                                                                            |
| If you want a fair fight, try to hide in the warehouse and let the bandits |
| funnel inside while you pick them off individually. From here, you can try |
| and loop around to the other exit if One-Eyed Jack makes his way inside.   |
| However, the best (and possibly cheapest) strategy is to run the boss over |
| with your Runner. Your vehicle has access to the warehouse camp, so why    |
| not splatter One-Eyed Jack to add insult to injury?                        |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

You cannot pull off a hit and run because you have to claim Jack's Other Eye 
for proof. Clear out any remaining bandits after One-Eyed Jack's demise and 
walk over to his body to find [JACK'S OTHER EYE] and his weapon: [MADJACK].
It's a little weird to fire due to the bullet's odd trajectory, but the
Explosive trait make it a blast to use! Ha. Ha ha. Ha. 

 - Jack's Other Eye: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

The bandit weapon smuggling should be put to an end now that the head in
charge is six feet under. Helena Pierce rewards you with The Sentinel: a heavy
duty Combat Rifle with a nice Weapon Zoom and burst firing mode, but has a
fairly low Fire Rate for a Combat Rifle.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Completing this mission alongside the story mission "Get Off My Lawn!" is
killing two Rakks with one stone, so follow them simultaneously. Start by
going south at the fork towards the bandit encampment. Drop down to the ground
from the walkway and then follow the perimeter clockwise until you reach the
southeast corner of the camp. Kill all the enemies here and look for Earl's
[C-CHARGE] next to a [SILVER CHEST].

 - C-Charge: Objective Complete

Now to place the charge. Continue clockwise around the bandit camp to reach
another walkway. Deal with all the bandits and follow the walkway to the
central watch tower. The place is crawling with Bandit Raiders and other
heavily-shielded bandits, but the elemental barrels strewn around can help
even the playing field.

Once the bandits are killed, approach the detonation point at the metal
canister's base and place the C-Charge.

 - C-Charge placed: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Don't run off just yet! Wait a few seconds until the fireworks happen. The
explosion destroys a metal cage attached to the adjacent building, revealing
[2 RED CHESTS] and an ammo crate. Ooh la la!

| repair kit somewhere in this scrap heap?                                   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

It is best to complete this mission as soon as possible, because it is easy to
miss. You never have to explore the northern side of the scrapyard for any
mission, so you can completely miss this helpless Claptrap if you're not a
keen explorer.

Make a left at the fork and enter the tunnel, following the path until it
opens up into a field. There are numerous buildings lining the side of the
road, so you can expect plenty of bandits here. Up ahead, take either the left
or right ramp around the junk pile to another group of bandit homes. Here you
will find the injured Claptrap.

The road eventually leads you up a hill and loops around, so under normal
circumstances you would have to climb the hill and claim the Repair Kit at the
top. However, there is a way to bypass the entire bandit trail and reach the
kit immediately. From the Claptrap, walk along the road and look out for a
refrigerator on the side of the road. Jump on top of it, then continue jumping
and you should hop your way up the junk pile and to the [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT]
at the end of the trail (next to a [RED CHEST]).

If you want to play it fair or if you (for whatever reason) cannot access it
the easy way, then you'll have to follow the path to your goal. 

 - Repair Kit: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Drop down to the Claptrap's location and give him the Repair Kit. Use the
Backpack SDU to increase your inventory by three, bringing it up to 27.

| Make yourself useful! Go on out to Krom's Canyon and hijack it back.       |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Hah. Reminds me of Gauntlet. Crazy Earl loves him some Canned Skag Meat, so it
is up to you to get some for him and reap the rewards. The delicacy is only
found in Krom's Canyon, which can be accessed from the Rust Commons East.

From the Underpass - East, drive south until you reach an tunnel on your left
and proceed through. Stay on the ground and drive under a raised bridge to
come to a dam. The dam is heavily armed, including a Gatling Turret, Rocket
Turret, and a Mulciber Mk2. The region is perilous, and most of the enemies on
your trip will be around Level 26. It's no walk in the park.

When you enter Krom's Canyon, take the eastern path. The ground road almost
always takes you to your destination, but it is better to climb the ramps and
follow the catwalks so you have the high ground when it comes to facing
baddies and looking ahead. Even though the food was stolen by Krom, it is in
the possession of a bandit leader named Reaver, and his camp is at the end of
the eastern route.

Go under the first overhang and head down the barren path until a group of
Spiderants ambushes you. It won't be much longer before you reach the end of
the road; the camp containing the food is just up ahead.

Kill the first wave of bandits on the ground, then pick up the [CANNED SKAG
MEAT] in front of the New-U Pole. Go up the ramp, walk forward towards the
houses and defeat the enemies, then take the [CANNED SKAG MEAT] off the barrel
next to the roasted Skag.

There are two paths to take: head up the ramp on the right and grab the third
[CANNED SKAG MEAT]. Stay in the tower and shoot down at the Badass Raider and
other bandits to the west. Go west into the camp and pick up another [CANNED
SKAG MEAT] from under the canopy. A Bruiser and s'more bandits are up ahead.
There is also a whimpering Claptrap here; talk to him and receive the mission,
but I'd wrap up this one before you worry about any Repair Kits.

Pass by the New-U Pole and follow the arrow signs to the next part of camp.
As you come towards a bridge, a bunch of Psychos run across, so toss a grenade
to hit the whole group. There's a [CANNED SKAG MEAT] to the far right. On the
other side, take the [CANNED SKAG MEAT] near the sleeping back to your right
and proceed forward.

The portion of the camp you are in overlooks the lower section where you found
the second can. Stay alongside the cliff and jump towards the seventh [CANNED
SKAG MEAT] on the tower, then jump back.

When you come to a wooden gate, look for a lever and pull it. The gate raises,
revealing a horde of bandits - mainly Bruisers - on the other side. The final
wave of bandits is a doozy: there is a Badass Psycho, a few Bandit Raiders,
and at least five Bruisers. Once the dust settles, walk to the end of the
camp to find the final [3 CANNED SKAG MEAT].

 - Canned skag meat: 10/10
 - TURN IN!

For an easy escape from the camp, head to the opposite side of the room to
find a [RED CHEST]. Drop down from the balcony to cut your travel time in
half.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

This Claptrap is found at the Reaver's camp, just after finding the fourth
Canned Skag Meat. The Repair Kit is actually behind you, but it's in a tricky
spot: you cannot backtrack to get it. 

After accepting the job, continue through the camp and across the bridge. As
you can tell from looking at your map, the item is in the part of the camp
where you found the second Canned Skag Meat. However, it is out of reach from
the ground and you must take an alternate route.

Take down all the enemies and head northeast towards the seventh Canned Skag
Meat: it is on top of a tower that you must jump to. Leap onto the tower, then
onto the wooden platform. The [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT] is hanging from a rope.
As a side note, make sure not to jump down onto the red building, because you
won't be able to reach the platform from here.

Using the Backpack SDU means you now have 30 available slots in your
inventory (assuming you have completed the previous Claptrap missions). Make
sure to follow the Claptrap as he takes you to a [RED CHEST].

| young man and I think he may have run away again. Shawn must've gone after |
| him, and now I'm fearing the worst. Anyone, please, search around New      |
| Haven and find out what happened to my cousin.                             |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

The whereabouts of Shawn Stokely are here in New Haven. Not in the city per
se, but rather the western gate. This mission is only available after you
accept the Crazy Earl mission, "The Next Piece".

Get a car and drive down to the west gate. Walk up the ramp near the garage
and enter the house on the far end. What comes next should not be much of a
surprise at this point in the game.

| Shawn's cousin will be devastated to hear about this. It seems that this   |

|____________________________________________________________________________|

It is probably a good idea to complete this mission alongside "Earl Needs
Food...Badly" since they take place at the same location in Krom's Canyon. It
isn't the end of the world if you already got Earl his Canned Skag Meat. At
least it'll be familiar territory for when you exterminate Reaver at his camp.

Once you have Fast Traveled to Krom's Canyon, make a right at the fork and
follow the canyon path. Reaver is located at the end of his camp (where the
final three Canned Skag Meats are), so you will have to fight your way through
the entire camp in order to reach his headquarters.

| Time for some revenge with a capital "R". The story goes like this: Jed    |
| Stokely was a troubled lad who always found himself on the wrong side of   |
| the tracks, and this time crossed the line by killing his adoptive father  |
| and joining Krom's team of bandits. It's time to get some justice by       |
| killing the man now known as Reaver. He only shows his face when you have  |
| defeated the slew of bandits at the end of the camp.                       |
|                                                                            |
| After he crawls out of the hole in the wall, throw a grenade as his feet   |
| and open fire. The boss's weapon of choice is a Sniper Rifle, so it can be |
| very powerful but has a fairly slow firing rate. Reaver only takes shots   |
| if you are standing still, so you can go the entire fight strafing back    |
| and forth and he won't really do anything.                                 |
|                                                                            |
| It's a pretty embarrassing fight. I've had several instances where Reaver  |
| is like a statue and only fires his gun every few seconds. Keep your       |
| distance so he doesn't melee attack you and unload a few clips on him. I   |
| mean, it's a pitiful fight. Don't bring a Sniper Rifle to a gun fight.     |

In order to partake in this side mission, you must complete the story mission,
"Jaynistown: Secret Rendezvous". With that out of the way, the two drawbridges
in the Rust Commons East are lowered and you are granted full access to the
region. You don't have to complete the entire Jaynistown saga, but this
mission allows you to reach the second beacon in question.

At this point in your adventure, you likely have not had the privilege of
checking out the Rust Commons East aside from the cut through to Krom's
Canyon. Warp to the Underpass and enter Rust Commons East.

There isn't much sightseeing at the north end of the Rust Commons East. It is
mainly a mountainous range crawling with Spiderants and Scythids. The Trashy
Knoll is the northern peninsula, but you'll visit there later. The bus station
east of the transition gate holds a [SILVER CHEST] on its roof and there is an
Ammo Vendor on the ground.

If you go southwest from there and climb the hill, you will reach the North
Ridge beacon. There are some tough bandits outside the station and a [RED
CHEST] on the side. The enemies here are tough. I'm talking Level 28, Level 29
tough. Proceed to the back corner of the beacon station and activate the panel
to relight the beacon.

 - North Ridge beacon activated: Objective Complete

The second beacon is at the southern end, so you must cross the South
Drawbridge. Drive north past Jaynistown and veer off the road before the
tunnel and up the path on your left. At the top of the hill is the beacon
station.

There aren't as many enemies at this station, and the wide open space gives
you more options during combat. Watch out for any Badass Raiders here. Just
as before, a [RED CHEST] on the side of the building greets you, and there is
a [SILVER CHEST] at the far north end past the terminal. Hey, you can even see
the North Ridge beacon station from here!

| People have taken to calling it the "Middle of Nowhere". There was a       |
| Bounty Board out there, but it doesn't work anymore. Go take a look at the |

As the mission card states, completing this job (and a few others) opens up a
cavalcade of new bounty board missions in the Rust Commons East. Enter the
Rust Commons East via the Underpass - East gate. Continue south and pass the
tunnel that leads to the Flood Lock. Park your car at the overpass, get out,
and climb up onto it to find yourself at the Middle of Nowhere. Investigate
the bounty board just past the New-U Station.

| The bounty board is missing a fuse, of all things. Who uses fuses these    |
| days, anyhow? That's the problem, really. They're hard to come by, seeing  |
| as most people have thrown 'em all out. Not like Marcus sells 'em; can't   |

| appreciate it if you could find some and bring 'em to me.                  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Now that you have found the Middle of Nowhere bounty board, you have to get
the thing up and running. That's where the Bounty Board Fuses come in. You can
find three of them at the northern peninsula. Stop by at the trio of vendors
next to the bounty board, then hop in a car and take off.

Drive up to the Trashy Knoll and exit your vehicle. Fight your way through the
Scythid army as you search for the three fuses. You'll find all kinds of
Scythids here, usually including some sort of elemental Badass Scythid.

The first [BOUNTY BOARD FUSE] is inside a Skag pile on the left side of the
area, southeast of the central garbage heap. The next [BOUNTY BOARD FUSE] is
also in a Skag pile lining the edge of the large trash pile. The final [BOUNTY 
BOARD FUSE] is inside another Skag pile on the northwest side of the trash
heap. Don't pay attention to the waypoint, because it only pinpoints the
general location of the fuses, so don't worry if you think it's glitching out
on you.

 - Bounty Board Fuses: 3/3
 - TURN IN!

Now ride back to the Middle of Nowhere and talk to Mr. Johns. It's showtime.

Okay, not quite. At least Hudson Johns wasn't lying when he called it a small
favor. There are some Spiderants making a fuss in the field nearby and in
general being unpleasant company, so Mr. Johns has put their fate into your
hands.

This has gotta be the easiest mission ever. And for those XP and cash rewards?
What a steal! Jump down from the overpass and head over to the field northwest
from Mr. John's house. A handful of Spiderants should pop out of the ground.
Gyros, Workers, Soldiers, you know the drill. Maybe a Badass Spiderant here
and there. They should all be around Level 25, so they're no threat. There is
a Catch-A-Ride Station nearby, so why waste bullets?

 - Spiderants killed: 5/5

Hopefully Mr. John is a lightning-quick mechanic, because that should have
only taken about thirty seconds.

Okay, now this is just free money. The Middle of Nowhere bounty board is
fully functioning, but you are given one more brain dead job by Mr. Johns.
All you have to do is return to New Haven and talk to Helena Pierce.

Fast Travel from the New-U Station at the Middle of Nowhere bounty board and
talk to Helena in her office.

 - Helena talked to: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Should I even bother making sections for such trivial side missions? Anyways,
make sure to check out the Middle of Nowhere bounty board to pick up a bunch
of new quests. Remember, make sure that "Jaynistown: Secret Rendezvous" is
wrapped up before you get carried away here.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

You know the drill. The weapon pieces are all located at the Flood Lock (the
dam just before the entrance to Krom's Canyon). Since the dam is so small and
the weapons are specifically hidden in the dam (not in the clearing past the
dam), this scavenger hunt will be very easy.

Go through the gate and immediately look to your right at the stack of boxes.
Jump on top of them to reach the concrete base of the pillar. Pick up the
[SHOTGUN MAGAZINE] and fall down.

 - Shotgun Magazine: Objective Complete

Now cross the walkway to the east side of the dam. Here you will locate the
[SHOTGUN STOCK] on top of a crate in front of you.

 - Shotgun Stock: Objective Complete

Jump on said crate, then continue your ascent until you are on top of the
roof. The [SHOTGUN BARREL] is up here.

 - Shotgun Barrel: Objective Complete

From the roof, perform a running jump onto the cylindrical structure. If you
look ahead, you'll find another component on top of the concrete tower base.
Another running leap and you'll end up on top. Snag the [SHOTGUN BODY].

 - Shotgun Body: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Yep. One of these again. Hop in a vehicle and take off towards the South
Drawbridge. Drive right up to the bridge and park before going across. Walk
behind the small building on the right and flip over the box to reveal the
first [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY].

 - Journal Day 578: Objective Complete

Back in your Runner, return to the central sector near the Middle of Nowhere.
Drive through the monumental pool of sewage and follow the western border.
Once you make it past the sludge lake, drive up on the grassy incline and up
to the wall separating the two portions of the Rust Commons.

There are a lot of Scythids here, but Scythids are generally easy enemies and
you can run over the majority of them without a care. The [TANNIS JOURNAL
ENTRY] is hidden underneath a giant mushroom.

 - Journal Day 616: Objective Complete

The next Data Recorder isn't far from here. Head north and then hang a right
before coming to the Middle of Nowhere. You should be in the large field
below the North Drawbridge. Navigate past the craters and stay on the south
end of the field, near the cliff wall of the Overlook.

The Data Recorder is located underneath a canopy. Look for a red tarp hanging
over some supply crates and a few cots. Fight your way through the Spiderants
hanging around, then check the site out. First, open the [RED CHEST], then
look behind the overturned cot to find the [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] peeking out
from underneath. Definitely a tricky one to find, even with the waypoint.

 - Journal Day 653: Objective Complete

You will be staying here in the field, because the next Data Recorder is at
the opposite end, past the North Drawbridge. There is a bandit outpost not too
far away that you might want to clear out, mainly because you will likely
draw their attention during your drive.

From the outpost, climb the hill towards the North Drawbridge and climb to the
top of the nearby watch tower. They waypoint has directed you here, but the
place is seemingly devoid of any Data Recorder. Not so fast! Approach the
piece of sheet metal leaning against the side of the wall and press X to push
it aside. The [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] is underneath.

 - Journal Day 684: Objective Complete

The quest for the final Data Recorder brings you to an area you know all too
well: the Middle of Nowhere. Head on over and park underneath the overpass,
then go inside Hudson John's house. The [TANNIS JOURNAL ENTRY] is sandwiched
between the wall and a large crate.

 - Journal Day 718: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Well at least you don't have to go very far to turn in the mission.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The waypoint leads you to the north, so grab a Runner and take off. The first
chapel is actually north of the Catch-A-Ride Station at the Underpass - East.
Look for a small wooden building that looks to only fill one occupant. Inside
is a [BANDIT SCRIPTURE] that you can set on fire by hitting X.

 - 1st scripture burnt: Objective Complete

Your trip takes you to the vicinity of the Flood Lock. Continue south and
drive through the tunnel towards the drawbridge. The chapel is northwest of
the bridge, at the base of the hill. Burn the scripture inside.

 - 2nd scripture burnt: Objective Complete

Return to the Middle of Nowhere. Drive south towards the huge pit of sludge
before the South Drawbridge. Hug the wall and be on the lookout for a small
chapel among a grassy patch on the east side. Enter and press X next to the
[BANDIT SCRIPTURE] to light it up.

 - 3rd scripture burnt: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

A slew of Scythids crawl after you after you exit the third chapel. Either
kill them all or escape in your Runner, then return to the bounty board to
hand it in.

| - Collect pamphlets from the bandits at Old Lynne Abbey                    |

| You know Old Lynne Abbey, up on the Overlook? That place has been          |
| abandoned since we pulled out of Old Haven, but some bandits recently took |
| the place over, and are now proselytizing and handing out pamphlets to     |
| anyone who'll listen. I doubt those nut jobs have really found religion.   |
| We need to grab some of these pamphlets and find out what they're up to.   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

This quest takes place at Old Lynne Abbey, which is on the east side near
Jaynistown. You likely have not been to that area before, so this should be
new territory for you. In a Runner, drive across the South Drawbridge and go
past Jaynistown.

Enter the tunnel and you'll come out on the other end near the Scraple New-U
Pole. Make a hard left just past the pole (if you climb the hill to the right
of the New-U Pole, you'll come to a [RED CHEST] at the top).

Old Lynne Abbey is a run down chapel that has now been taken over by weird
religious zealots. They are trying to spread the word of their new religion
by handing out pamphlets to wary travelers. Honestly, on a list of awful
things bandits have been known to do, this is pretty low on the list. But this
is your assignment, so you must follow through.

You will be swarmed by bandits as soon as you pass through the open gate, as
you quickly learn that peacefully spreading the word of their god does not
seem to be on the bandit cult's regime. Take them down, one by one. There are
a fairly large amount of enemies at Old Lynne Abbey, so be careful. Each of
them leave behind a [PAMPHLET]. You must collect no fewer than six of them.

 - Pamphlets: 6/6
 - TURN IN!

Before you leave Old Lynne Abbey, search the chapel for a [RED CHEST] and a
Med Vendor. The fastest way to get back to the bounty board is via the North
Drawbridge. The next mission in this chain becomes available at the bounty
board.

| After looking at those pamphlets you collected, I'm fairly certain there's |
| something interesting out there. Their crude drawings show stick figures   |
| gathered around some kind of monster named "Slither". Maybe if you kill    |
| their "god", they'll abandon this whole religious scheme?                  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

The mission's level may be a bit daunting, but trust me, this job is a cinch.
Sure, it involves slaying a supposed god, but things turn out much better than
expected. Slither is the object of the bandit cult's affection, so you must
kill it in order to shut them up. Slither lives in the Trashy Knoll.

Once you have reached the Trashy Knoll, enter the area and approach the trash
heap as the god Slither makes its presence felt.

| it can be hard to find and track Slither, despite its vibrant colors.      |

Slither does drop a nice amount of loot and some cool equipment. Now that the
sorry excuse for a deity is no more, hop back in your car and return to the
Middle of Nowhere bounty board.

You receive [THE DOVE] afterwards. Now this is a damn special gun. This 
Repeater Pistol may not wow you with its stat line, but is has one interesting
characteristic: it does not consume ammo. It really doesn't. You don't even
have to reload! You can just fire forever and ever and ever.

The Dove is great to stow away and use during heavy fights mainly because you
never have to worry about reloading or running out of ammunition. I guess the
developers had to give it average Damage and Fire Rate as to not make the gun
overly cheap. It's definitely one you don't want to sell anytime soon.

| Given the plant growth I've observed outside of New Haven, I suspect there |
| is a component in the sulfur springs which acts as fertilizer for          |
| Pandora's native flora. To test my theory, I need samples both from The    |
| Retching Seeps and The Fetid Cauldron. I'd do it myself, but each location |
| is guarded by a nasty spiderant! Eliminate these nuisances, and I'll be    |
| able to conduct further tests without the need for assistance.             |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Well, looks like there are two bosses in this mission. Fortunately, both are
pretty easy. You must enter Spiderant territory to obtain Sulfur Samples from
the large springs lining the area - they look like huge craters in the ground.

Ride over to the Retching Seeps since it is closer; drive over the North
Drawbridge and then go south into the large field. Get out and press X next to
the glowing green sulfur spring to receive your sample.

Of course, this also disturbs Widowmaker's sleep.

| Widowmaker is a big blue Spiderant covered in green blotches; about the    |
| size of a Spiderant King or Queen. The Widowmaker is much faster than any  |
| common Spiderant, which makes its shockwave attack hard to dodge. It can   |
| also shoot web balls at you like a Spiderant Soldier and can fire a green  |
| sonic boom as well. Just like any Spiderant, firing at the front doesn't   |
| do you any good, so try and flank the boss to target the abdomen (it helps |
| if your attacks can Daze enemies).                                         |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Widowmaker killed: Objective Complete

Check the watch tower near the side of the drawbridge to find a [SILVER CHEST]
at the top. The Fetid Cauldron is south of Jaynistown. You may want to
exterminate the Spiderants in the vicinity so you don't have to fight them
alongside the boss. Inspect the green spring to get your sample.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Like the Circle of Death back in the Arid Badlands, the Circle of Slaughter is
an arena that allows you to participate in three rounds of bloodshed and
glory. The resistance increases for each round, and you will want to be around
Level 29 or 30 if you want to run through all the rounds in one go.

The Circle of Slaughter is stationed in the Rust Commons West. From the
nearest New-U Station, teleport to the Outeryard and continue south to the
Aqueduct Encampment. Pass through the camp that you combed during the
"Scavenger: Submachine Gun" side mission and you will find the arena. Talk to
Chuck Durden to turn the mission in.

Everything you need can be found at the entrance to the arena, so make sure
you have Healing Kits and ammunition. The arena is huge in comparison to the
Circle of Death, and you actually have cover. The storage crates that release
your opponents are hanging high in the air, but drop to the floor when they
are ready to be opened.

Your first batch of baddies is no real threat: various bandits, such as Bandit
Thugs and Bandit Raiders run out of the containers and hide behind cover. You
can also expect to fight plenty of Psychos and Mutant Midget Psychos.
Naturally, the Psychos give chase while the bandits keep their distance. There
are maybe 12-15 enemies total. If you are overleveled compared to your Level
25-26 prey, you may want to switch to The Dove so you conserve ammo.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The level spikes up a bit, so you may want to better prepare yourself if you
thought last round was too nonchalant. Right off the bat, this round is ten
times harder than the last: the two gates opposite the entrance open,
revealing about six Level 28 Bruisers in total and a Level 28 Badass Bruiser.

Immediately throw all your grenades at the bunch before they can spread out,
then take cover and begin picking them off. Put your Action Skill to good use
and try to kill the Badass Bruiser first since his Rocket Launcher can damage
you even while behind cover.

Not long after, and likely before you can kill all the Bruisers, another pair
of Badass Bruisers arrives; one with a Combat Rifle and another one with a
Rocket Launcher. Again, the Rocket Launcher enemies are much more dangerous
than the others, so try to eliminate them first. Rounding out the pack are a
small wave of Mutant Midget Psychos.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

For some odd reason, the mission level is actually lower than the previous
round. The round is kicked off with three Level 30 Badass Bruisers; two of
them are carryin' Combat Rifles while the other one opts for a Shotgun. They
come from the sides of the arena rather than the front, so immediately find
cover and pick a side.

A group of around five Bandit Raiders emerge from the containers opposite the
entrance gate. Only target them after the Badass Bruisers are down. Alongside
the bandits are a few Mutant Midget Psychos and Midget Shotgunners. Next up
is a wave of regular Bandit Thugs and Bandit Killers. Finally, two more Badass
Bruisers act as your final test.

Porno mags. There, I said it. I am no good at keeping secrets. You have to
recover Erik Frank's stash of valuables in order to get your reward. The first
dumpster is marked on your map, in the junkyard north of New Haven. The
dumpster is located near a Scythid nest, so you'll have to face off against
some pesky bugs before you can retrieve the [DIRTY MAGS].

From here, continue south towards a small bandit outpost. Kill 'em all, then
hang a left to walk away from the camp. When the wall opens up, go behind the
wall to find the dumpster and the [DIRTY MAGS]. The third dumpster is a lot
farther away; all the way near New Haven's west gate. From the west gate,
immediately head south and stay alongside the area's border to reach it. Pick
up the [DIRTY MAGS] inside.

Now head to the southeast corner of the map, near the transition gate to the
Rust Commons West. There is a small bandit camp out here and a Scythid
hotspot. Unsurprisingly, the [DIRTY MAGS] are inside the dumpster. Four down,
two to go.

Just to screw with you, the game decided to jumble up the order and now you
must head all the way across the map. Cut through New Haven and make your way
through the junkyard towards the entrance to Tetanus Warren. Take the [DIRTY
MAGS] after killing the band of Mutant Midget Psychos.

The final dumpster containing the magazines is just outside of New Haven.
Backtrack to the city and don't go inside, but walk around the perimeter. The
dumpster and the [DIRTY MAGS] is behind Scooter's garage.

 - Erik's valuables: 6/6

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Scooter doesn't seem too pleased with the bandit shenanigans taking place in
Treacher's Landing. Fast Travel to Treacher's Landing and get a move on. You
probably haven't had an extensive stay at Treacher's Landing aside from the
"Hair of the Dog" quest, so you may not be too familiar with the area's
layout.

The start of the area is a grassy meadow with several bandit homes; the first
one contains a [SILVER CHEST]. Fight through the bandits until you come to a
pier. Open another [SILVER CHEST] to the right of the pier entrance and step
onto it. There are a lot of elemental barrels and Jakobs propane tanks to
worry about; they come in handy during fights, but can also work against you.

Stay on the west side of the docks whenever the path splits and eventually
you will be able to see the first gunship in the distance. A Mulciber Mk2 is
planted on the ship's deck and is constantly rotating depending on your
location. Make sure to hide behind a wall or inside a house, then take shots
periodically at the turret.

You can ignore the turret entirely and position yourself so you have a clear
shot at the Jakobs gas tank on the back of the ship. Since your goal is to
sink the ship, you can bypass the enemy gunman and ignite the canister to
destroy the Righteous Man.

 - Righteous Man sunk: Objective Complete

Exit the docks onto another large clearing. Kill the bandits roaming around
the huts and make your way onto the southwest pier. This pier is a bit wider
than the boardwalk before, and there are a lot of crates and shipping
containers you can hide behind. Climb up onto the roof of the building closest
to you for a [SILVER CHEST].

There are quite a few enemies here, including a Badass Raider, and some guys
are even stationed on rooftops that fire down at you. Cover all your bases
and then direct your attention to the next ship. You should have a good angle
when aiming at the propane tank on the back of the ship. Don't worry about the
Mulciber Mk2.

 - Great Vengeance sunk: Objective Complete

The final gunship, the Furious Anger, is on the east end of the map. Check
out the remainder of the pier. There are [2 SILVER CHESTS] at the end; one on
top of some shipping containers and another on a rooftop. Now return to the
clearing and continue onto the boardwalk to the right.

Head to the north end of the dock and climb up the tower at the northeast
corner. From here, you have a great view of the final gunship. Shoot it down
to complete the mission.

 - Furious Anger sunk: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

But wait, there's more! There is still a small portion of Treacher's Landing
that you can explore, including a hidden Easter Egg!

 .------------------------.
 | Easter Egg: Water Show |
 '------------------------'
 - From the eastern dock, exit onto the shore. All the signs point towards the
   path north of here, but you are able to follow the coastline and go around
   the huge rock (looking at your map helps); there is a hidden dock here, and
   stepping on the ship here nets you the "You're on a Boat!" Achievement.
   There's also a [RED CHEST] on the ship with exceptionally good loot.
   
   But that's not all. There are various elemental barrels scattered around
   the area, and shooting certain ones in a specific order triggers an odd
   event:
   
   1. Shoot the yellow Explosive barrel floating in the water, to the right
   of the dock.
   2. There is a giant mountain of trash southeast of the dock. Equip a weapon
   with good Weapon Zoom and shoot the green Corrosive barrel on the left side
   of the trash pile.
   3. Shoot the blue Shock barrel on the boat (make sure you are standing
   safely on the dock).
   4. Finally, jump back on the boat and look past the Red Chest to spot a red
   Fire barrel in the water. Shoot it.
   
   Now look out into the ocean, sit back, and enjoy the weird-as-hell
   performance. I haven't a clue...

Now return to the signs and continue the intended route. There isn't much on
the shore; it's mainly a shortcut to the entrance. Open the [RED CHEST] at the
end of the path and drop down to the entrance to Treacher's Landing. Since you
are here, you might as well complete "Wanted: Fresh Fish" if you haven't yet.

| whatever fish float to the surface, and watch out for the bandits.         |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

There are several key spots in Treacher's Landing that allow you to fish for
some tasty snacks (although fish residing in putrid mud/sewer water probably
aren't tasty at all).

There are specific areas marked on your map that contain glowing green fishing
poles - when you throw a grenade in the surrounding water, the ensuing
explosion causes several Fresh Fish to rise to the surface. Hopefully you have
been upgrading your Weapon SDUs (the Grenade SDU in this case); if not, there
is an Ammo Vendor at the entrance that carries them.

You will want to choose your Grenade Mod wisely for this mission. Transfusion
grenades simply do not work and Rubberized Grenades are a huge pain in the
ass, so keep it simple. In some cases, explosions from elemental barrels or
Jakobs gas tanks will get the job done in place of a grenade.

When you reach the first boardwalk, stop at the spinning fish sign and chuck a
grenade in the pool of water to receive [4 FRESH FISH]. Back on the boardwalk,
continue straight at the fork and turn to the left. There is a fish sign
leaning against the side of the dock and another fishing line sticking out of
the water nearby. One grenade later and you have another set of [4 FRESH
FISH].

Follow the dock and stick to the right at the fork to stay on the dock. There
is another spinning fish sign up ahead and a pool of water that you can bomb
for [4 FRESH FISH].

That's it for this side of the area. Now head over to the boardwalk leading to
the eastern shore. Collect the [4 FRESH FISH] in the central pool, then walk
to the other end of the pool to find another fishing line and [4 FRESH FISH].

 - Fresh Fish: 20/20
 - TURN IN!

Woo hoo! A whopping 20 fish! You are going to dine like a king tonight. And
with the [LEVIATHAN] Rocket Launcher you get as an added bonus, you should

| I live in New Haven, but I can't stand having a woman in charge anymore.   |
| So, I found a nice bit o' waterfront property out in the Trash Coast.      |
| Trouble is, there's a bunch o' them scythid whatever-the-hells hanging     |
| around outside, including a really tough one I called Bleeder. Kill them   |
| scythids, especially Bleeder, and I'll be able to get the hell away from   |
| this place.                                                                |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Who would ever want to realistically live in the Trash Coast? The name alone
is unappealing enough! This side mission takes you to the southern side of the
map, but not as far south at the other two related sidequests.

From the two vendors at the entrance to the Trash Coast, go to the right. A
few Larva Crab Worms crawl over and attack. Remember these guys? It's been a
while. When the trail widens up significantly, stay towards the east coast and
you should see the shack in the distance. Scythids only appear in the front
yard, so when you get close enough a couple Giant Scythids and some Badass
Scythids'll show up. Defeat the first wave to make Bleeder appear.

| Well if the shoe fits... Bleeder is a small red Scythid that looks just    |
| like a Desert Scythid, but bleeds incessantly for some unknown reason. The |
| Scythid boss also permanently flies in the air unlike most Scythids that   |
| can only stay airborne temporarily. Bleeder is very fast and can be hard   |
| to keep track of; just look for the streams of blood in the air.           |
|                                                                            |
| Try to execute the remaining Scythids before focusing on the boss. They    |
| usually just get in your way, and the Bursting Scythids are especially     |
| annoying, what with their tendency to explode in your face. Bleeder only   |
| attacks by flinging globs of blood at you, which both damages you and can  |
| temporarily mess up your vision. Just like Slither before, Bleeder is more |
| of a nuisance than a real challenge and can be destroyed rather hastily.   |

| Attempts at human habituation along the Trash Coast have always failed,    |
| because spiderants overwhelm anyone who tries to live there. The bandits   |
| managed it, though, by placing a Queen Spiderant Abdomen in the middle of  |
| their camp. I want you to take an abdomen from a rival Queen, then replace |
| the bandits' with that one. Let's see if the spiderants will do our dirty  |
| work for us.                                                               |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Give credit where credit is due: that is a particularly ingenious plan by the
bandits, especially by a faction that is known for their ineptitude. But we
are smarter, and the plan to do away with the Trash Coast bandits seems
bulletproof.

Head south and stick to the east, continuing past the waterfront property and
a bandit camp containing an injured Claptrap (pick up the "Claptrap Rescue:
Trash Coast" mission). There is another bandit camp farther south, usually
containing a Badass Psycho. Trigger the New-U Pole as you follow the mountain
trail. If you go to the southernmost point of the area, there is a [RED CHEST]
waiting for you through a mob of Spiderants.

Follow the mountain trail to come to a basin. There are usually more than one
Badass Spiderant down here as well as many other regular Spiderants. Once you
get close enough, some rumblings should signal the appearance of a mighty
queen. Not just any regular queen...

| BOSS: Queen Tarantella |___________________________________________________
|                                                                            |

| Without a doubt, Queen Tarantella is the biggest and meanest Spiderant out |
| on the market. She is at least twice the size of Widowmaker and Helob and  |
| twice as strong. Make sure the basin is devoid of all life other than you  |
| and the boss, otherwise things will get unnecessarily complicated.         |
|                                                                            |
| Queen Tarantella doesn't do much other than shoot webbing at you or whack  |
| you with her giant front limbs, so she's just like fighting a Spiderant    |
| King or Queen. Despite her intimidating stature, this boss can be          |
| considered easier to take down than normal Spiderants. Why? Because her    |
| abdomen is about three times the size of her armored face.                 |
|                                                                            |
| Unlike many Spiderants, who have huge plating to protect their front,      |
| Queen Tarantella deviates from the norm. Due to this butt-to-head ratio,   |
| you can target the boss's abdomen from the front without having to try to  |
| flank her or wait for her to stick her abdomen in the air during the web   |
| shot attack.                                                               |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Several Spiderantlings emerge from the queen's corpse, so don't get too
excited about your victory. Kill them and loot Queen Tarantella, including the
[QUEEN ABDOMEN].

 - Queen Abdomen: Objective Complete

Climb out of the basin and continue north. You will pass along the first
bandit camp and the wounded Claptrap on the right. Follow the cliffside and
cross the bridge to reach another intersection. Don't worry about the south
path and the southwest corner of the map; go north and drop down from the
ledge.

The main bandit campsite is west of your location. You may encounter a few
bandits and Spiderants slugging it out here on the outskirts, but as you move
closer you'll find less and less Spiderants. When you reach the camp's
epicenter, kill any Spiderant stragglers and place the Queen Abdomen on the
pike.

 - Abdomen swapped: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

While the mission is technically over, it really isn't. The ground begins to
tremor after swapping out the abdomens and another raging Spiderant arrives
here on the scene.

| BOSS: King Aracobb |_______________________________________________________

| In the case of Spiderants, the females seem to be the dominant gender.     |
| King Aracobb is much smaller than his partner and honestly looks just like |
| a regular Spiderant King. A bit stronger, but other than that the two are  |
| spitting images of each other.                                             |
|                                                                            |
| You should be able to handle King Aracobb with ease. He only uses melee    |
| attacks and other close-range moves. Unlike Queen Tarantella, the butt-to- |
| head ratio of the king is the opposite of the queen's: his armored head is |
| much larger than his (abnormally) small abdomen. This makes targeting his  |
| weak point iffy at times.                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| The mission hints at the fact that you can let the Spiderant/bandit        |
| problem handle itself out. After King Aracobb has been awakened, run up    |
| the incline and enter the bandit camp. The boss will follow and turn his   |
| attention to the bandits. Now the king won't be able to wipe out the whole |
| camp on his own (especially since there are a lot a Bruisers and Badass    |
| Psychos), but the distraction is enough for you to easily target his       |
| abdomen. Or sit back, let the two parties duke it out, and see who wins.   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

As I mentioned, King Aracobb likely didn't make it far in his quest to
decimate the mountain camp. Loot his corpse and take over in his place, as
you follow the catwalks and go from house to house in murdering the bandits.
There are [2 RED CHESTS] total, both on the southern end. Turning in the
mission earns you the [PATTON] along with money and XP - it is just a standard
Revolver with a unique name.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Upon entering the Trash Coast, head south and stay towards the eastern trail,
as if you were heading towards the east coast. There is a bandit outpost
southwest of Bleeder's territory containing a bunch of enemies and a Claptrap;
right next to a [RED CHEST].

The waypoint is planted right on top of the waterfront property, but it is
deceiving. In fact, ignore the waypoint entirely and listen to me: the Repair
Kit is on top of the pipeline extending through the camp and hanging over the
house. Here's how to get on the pipeline:

Proceed south and loop around towards the basin where Queen Tarantella lives
(lived). Continue north and you should see the start of the pipeline. If you
climb up the junk pile and leap onto the pipe, you can carefully navigate
along the pipe. And I mean careful: if you slip, you'll end up at the camp and
have to trek all the way back to the basin. Trudge across the pipe and you
will find the [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT] at the opposite end.

 - Repair Kit: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

The happy Claptrap thanks you by giving you a Backpack SDU, bumping your
inventory up to 33 slots.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Short and to the point. The bandits have kidnapped Crazy Earl's best friend,
and you must find out where and free him from the evildoers. The camp in
particular is at the southwest end of the Trash Coast.

You can either go south and loop around past the basin or head west and cut 
through the mountain camp. You should have explored both areas if you have 
completed the other side missions in this area, so it is all personal 
preference. Although there is a New-U Pole at the north end of the camp that
will come in handy in case you die.

It's a pretty standard bandit camp; nothin' fancy about it. Get in, kill the
bandits and Psychos, and do your job. Enter the animal enclosure to find a
tiny Skag locked up inside one of the cells. This is Earl's pet Skag, Skrappy!
Hitting the button opens the door to the holding cell. If you follow Skrappy,
he runs over into a Skag den and scoots on home. No, you cannot hurt or kill
Skrappy, during this period, you heartless monster you.

 - Earl's best friend freed: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Don't forget to open up the [RED CHEST] next to the Skag den. Now when you
return to Crazy Earl's Scrapyard, Skrappy will be wandering around outside
Earl's trailer.

 .------------------------------------.
 | Easter Egg: Skrappy "All Grown Up" |
 '------------------------------------'
 - Skrappy is a young pup when you rescue him from the poachers, but if you
   return to Crazy Earl's Scrapyard later in the game he will be all grown up!
   There are conflicting reports on exactly when he matures, but it seems to
   be sometime after completing the story mission "The Final Piece".
   
   Walk past Earl's trailer and Skrappy "All Grown Up" will be waiting for you
   at the intersection. He is a Skag enemy that has the same mannerisms as an
   Elder Skag. By the time you complete the game, he'll be around Level 31.
   Skrappy is a respawning enemy, and killing him yields a lot of loot (none
   of it very good). Don't worry about the wrath of Earl - he either doesn't
   know of his best friend's demise or doesn't care anymore.

| Now that the bridges are open, we've noticed four columns of smoke rising  |
| from Old Haven. We believe these are bandit distress calls, since they     |
| don't have free access to ECHOnet. It could be a trap, but we can't risk   |
| ignoring a problem that's worse than the bandits themselves. I'm offering  |

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Even though you should have had this mission for a while, the best time to
participate in it is when you receive the story mission "Not Without My
Claptrap". That way you can knock both out in one trip. Plus, Old Haven is
really tough for players at that early in the game.

However, all you need to do for this quest is to actually enter Old Haven. The
transition gate is in the Rust Commons East, north of The Cauldron and
Jaynistown. Fast Travel to The Cauldron and take a Runner through the tunnel.
The gate should be just before the North Drawbridge. Once you are inside Old
Haven, the mission will be completed.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Since this sidequest involves covering the entire map, you might want to wait
until after "Not Without My Claptrap" so you have a better understanding of
the layout. Nothing's worse than getting lost in a city full of Crimson Lance
soldiers.

The waypoint is of no use to you and only plants itself in the middle of the
map. Instead, use your keen seeing ability to look for the rising smoke
signals throughout Old Haven. There are four sectors that contain unwanted
smoke signals. The order does not matter.

There is a smoke signal directly east of the entrance. The northeast area is
protected by Gatling Turrets and many Crimson Lance. If you stay along the
north border, you can sneak past some enemies and snipe both Gatling Turrets.
Look on the ground, look on balconies, and look high up on rooftops for any
Crimson Lance that may be gunning for you.

The pillar of smoke should lead you to a large mound of burning tires. Walk up
to it and yank the lever to douse the fire. Look around afterwards for a
[SILVER CHEST].

 - Apartment District: Objective Complete

From the Apartment District, continue south towards the location of the
Claptrap prisoner. If you follow the main street down the middle of the map,
you can find some goodies. Make sure to climb on the top of buildings to get a
good view of the surrounding area as well as find chests.

Now head to the canal. Go across and fight the horde of Crimson Lance on the
other side. They usually come out of metal gates on the upper balconies.
Afterwards, look for the pile of burning tires and defuse the smoke signal.

 - Canal District: Objective Complete

The next smoke signal is west of the Canal District. The entrance to the
junkyard is a bit north, so once you reach the southwest corner follow the
street until you can get past the fence. You may find a Badass Lance lurking
in the junkyard. Any of the Badass Lances are hard to handle, whether it be a
Badass Infantry or Badass Defender. Take cover if need be and put your Action
Skill to good use. Disable the smoke signal here.

 - Junkyard: Objective Complete

Continue north to eventually go full circle. The last smoke signal is on the
rooftops, so you must find a building with access to its roof. Most of the
buildings in the northwest corner are connected via walkways or at least close
enough to jump to, so once you get on any roof you should be able to hop to
the others. There is a [SILVER CHEST] on the ground in the northwest corner.

Plus, staying on the rooftops gives you the height advantage over the Crimson
Lance soldiers below. Climb up to the smoke signal on the highest roof and
pull the lever.

 - Rooftops: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

A couple buildings open up after completing the "Not Without My Claptrap"
story mission. One is a convenience store containing a Weapon Vendor south of
the neon butt sign (?!?), and the second is a room behind the convenience
store which must be accessed from the opposite side of the building. Walk
around the building near the junkyard and enter the back room. Inside is a
[SILVER CHEST] and a Claptrap.

The Repair Kit is on the east side of town, in between the Apartment District
and the Canal District. Follow the canal towards the southeast building (on
the north side of the canal) and climb up the staircase. From the small roof,
turn around and jump to the building north of you. There is a [SILVER CHEST]
up here, right next to a New-U Pole on the ground. More importantly, there is
a [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT] inside the open door.

 - Repair Kit: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

From the roof, leap northwest to the roof and you'll discover a [RED CHEST].
Now return to the Claptrap and hand over the Repair Kit. Now you should have
36 inventory slots.

| One of the bandits is breathing his last few, ragged breaths. He opens his |

| still.                                                                     |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

As you have noticed during your travels, there are a ton of dead bodies strewn
throughout Old Haven. Dead bandits, in particular. There is one corpse at the
north end of Old Haven that contains a special item. From the entrance to Old
Haven, walk opposite the vendors towards the northern wall and there is a
corpse clutching [A BANDIT'S JOURNAL]. Pick it up to begin the quest.

A [BANDIT KEY], the first of three, is found right next to the bandit and the
journal... don't forget it!

 - 1st Bandit Key: Objective Complete

The next key is on the eastern border, between the Apartment District and the
Canal District. You know you're close if you come across a line of bandits
staked against the wall. The second [BANDIT KEY] is underneath the wall.

 - 2nd Bandit Key: Objective Complete

Next up, proceed to the Canal District. Cross the canal to the south end and
do away with the Crimson Lance. The third [BANDIT KEY] is again lying in the
middle of a massacre site.

 - 3rd Bandit Key: Objective Complete

Now for the strongbox! It is actually back where you found the journal and the
first Bandit Key. Mosey on back and open the maximum security shack.

 - Strongbox found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!
 
Your reward? Not much actually in terms of loot, but reading the treasure map
allows you to turn in the mission and start another one.

| taking it for yourself.                                                    |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Hey, no need to read between the lines. As long as the Crimson Lance does not
get their filthy hands on it. Doesn't mean you need to feel bad about taking
it for yourself. And sure, the bandit isn't intelligent enough to spell
"treasure" correctly, but he damn sure knows how to hide a stash.

You will be taken all the way back to the Dahl Headlands. It has probably been
a while. Use the New-U Station here at Old Haven to warp to Lucky's Last
Chance Watering Hole. Grab a car from the Catch-A-Ride Station and set off for
the treasure spot.

The location of the treasure stash is at the northernmost point in the Dahl
Headlands. Drive over and to the edge of the cliff; the game triggers that you
have found it just by driving to the side of the cliff.

 - Stash found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

From the east side of the mountain is a catwalk that leads down to a shack
built on the side of the cliff wall. I actually pointed this spot out to you
earlier in the guide, so you may recognize it if you are a diligent reader.
Turn in the mission at the computer terminal, which opens the door to the hut
and reveals a [RED CHEST]. This chest usually holds very good equipment.

Once the gates to Thor's Digtown have opened, go inside; the Claptrap is on
the northeast end of Thor's Digtown, and it's probably easiest to reach him
from the east gate. Make sure to complete this during "The Final Piece", or
else you'll have a much more difficult time.

Once you have the coordinates, walk south to the southeast side of the town.
The [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT] is underneath a dirty mattress among a pile of
junk. Pick it up.

Give the Repair Kit to the wounded Claptrap for a reward. The Backpack SDU,
when equipped, should bring you up to a total of 39 slots. The Claptrap also

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Combat Rifle, machine gun, whatever. Tomato tomato. The pieces can all be
retrieved at Thor's Digtown. You should at least complete the first portion of
"The Final Piece" in order to safely get inside Thor's Digtown and search for
the components. In fact, the bandits at the town are replaced by Crimson Lance
after killing Baron Flynt, so you may want to hold off on that task until you
wrap up the two side missions here.

This is one of the harder scavenger mission in the game due to how big Thor's
Digtown is. Even though it's just a circle, there are a lot of nooks and
crannies. Fortunately, the developers took this into consideration and made it
so all four parts are on the east side of town. Thanks!

Make sure to clear out the entire town if you haven't already. The first
weapon piece is easy: as soon as you enter through the east gate, turn to the
right and walk up the ramp on the side of the gate. The [MACHINE GUN BARREL]
is at the top of the ramp.

 - Machine Gun Barrel: Objective Complete

From the base of the ramp, walk west towards the green hut. Use the pile of
tires to reach the top of the green hut, then leap onto the green tent. From
here, maneuver onto the shipping containers and look at the two cylindrical
structures nearby; the [MACHINE GUN BODY] is on top of one.

 - Machine Gun Body: Objective Complete

Return to the east gate and look for the blue shack near the gate (facing the
gate from the inside, it is on your right). Jump onto the metal fence and
boost yourself onto the roof, then walk onto the shipping container to find
the [MACHINE GUN STOCK].

 - Machine Gun Stock: Objective Complete

At the northeast corner is another hut with a blue roof. Walk behind the water 
tower to find it (it's also next to the hut with the Red Chest inside after
saving the Claptrap). Use the barricade to get on top of the roof and collect
the [MACHINE GUN MAGAZINE].

The helpless Claptrap is located in the first room of the Crimson Fastness
past the vendors. Search through the piles of dead Claptraps to find the blue
one. The Repair Kit is not too far away; it's inside a hangar east of your
location.

The hangar is easily accessed from this room, so you don't have to worry
about going through the entire base. Walk onto the balcony and go east through
the doorway. From the upper balcony, you can see the [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT] in
the hangar below. Shoot down any Crimson Lance on the second floor, then look
below for any more.

If you have a good view, you can take down most of the enemies from up here.
Otherwise, take the east stairwell to reach the first floor. Yank the kit off
the top of the rubbish.

 - Repair Kit: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Bring it back to the Claptrap for a Backpack SDU. This should be your tenth
Claptrap Rescue mission and your tenth Backpack SDU, bringing you total
inventory up to 42 slots (also giving you the "Fully Loaded" Achievement)! He 
also leads you to [2 RED CHESTS]. This room also serves as a bit of a shortcut
to help lead you through the Crimson Fastness.

[10] EQUIPMENT                                                          [1000]

==============================================================================

Learning how Borderlands generates their equipment is hard. A lot goes into
it, and it can be very confusing - hell, after hours of reading up on it I 
barely even understand it and I am the one trying to convey it to you, the
reader. As many of you know, Borderlands boasts an insane number of available
weapons. Almost unrealistic, even. The game is able to create millions of 
variations by following one simple (kidding, it's not really simple) formula.

As a disclaimer, I may confuse you with my incessant ramblings and poor
teaching skills. The Borderlands Wiki was a monumental help in informing the
public how the equipment system works. Seriously, the countless people who
have put this site together know what they're talking about. Check it out if
you are still confused after reading this section:

               .-------------------------------------------.
          -->  | http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Weapons |  <---
               '-------------------------------------------'

.----------.
| Elements |_________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

For starters, all equipment in Borderlands can contain elemental properties.
There are four elements in the game: Fire (also known as Incendiary), Shock,
Corrosive, and Explosive.

 - Fire weapons are best used against enemies without shields; flesh is weak
   against Fire, so enemies such as Skags and unshielded bandits are very
   susceptible to Fire-based weapons and equipment. Fire lingers on an enemy
   and can continue to drain their HP.

 - Shock weapons are best used against shields. Many foes throughout the game
   wear shields just like yourself, and they must be depleted before you can
   whittle away their HP. That's where Shock weapons come in. Sometimes Shock
   has the ability to momentarily stun enemies.

 - Corrosive weapons are best used against armored enemies. Late in the game
   you will primarily fight armored enemies (Crimson Lance), so Corrosive
   equipment comes in handy. It also has the ability to sometimes spread to
   other enemies if they are standing next to the target.

 - No enemy in the game has specific strengths or weaknesses towards Explosive
   equipment, so it's sort of the odd one out. Explosive weapons can sometimes
   create an explosion when hitting an enemy, which deals extra damage.


.-----------------.
| Equipment Color |__________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

I also touched on this earlier in the guide, but equipment text is generally 
color-coded based on rarity. In order from least rare to rarest:

 - White
 - Green
 - Blue
 - Purple
 - Orange
 - Pearlescent

Pearlescent (cyan) guns are only available in The Secret Armory of General
Knoxx DLC. And to further specify on orange weapons, they actually have three
categories of orange: yellow, orange, and dark orange. Don't really know why,
but if you look at them together in the game you'll notice a faint difference
in color between the three. Still, any yellow/orange/dark orange gun is
considered legendary.

Unfortunately, there is a lot more that goes into categorizing a gun than its
text color. That is what the next section is for.

'============================================================================'

Borderlands contains a lot of different available guns, but let's keep it
simple here at the beginning and break them down by their gun type.


.-----------.
| Gun Types |________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

.---------.
| Pistols |
'---------'
Pistols are small, one-handed guns. They are one of Mordecai's specialties and
are broken up into two classes: Repeater Pistols and Revolvers. Despite being
in the same weapon class and share the same Weapon Proficiency, Repeater
Pistols and Revolvers have their own ammo type.

 - Repeater Pistols have a high Fire Rate and decent Damage. They are best
   used for close to mid-range combat, and even though Repeater Pistols are
   pretty accurate, their Accuracy goes down when shooting from a distance.
   
   A subclass of the Repeater Pistols are the Machine Pistols. They are in the
   same category as Repeater Pistols, but have a larger magazine, higher Fire
   Rate, and are automatic weapons. Accuracy is sacrificed in favor of these,
   since most Machine Pistols do not have scopes needed for Weapon Zoom.

 - Revolvers are much different than Repeater Pistols. They are very accurate,
   and usually have high Damage. Many also have a Weapon Zoom, which makes
   them useful from farther away. However, Revolvers have low Fire Rate and
   usually an incredibly small magazine (maybe only 2-3 bullets). 

.-----------------.
| Submachine Guns |
'-----------------'
Submachine Guns (SMGs) are small weapons that tend to have high Fire Rates and
decent Accuracy, but don't pack a lot of punch. Many SMGs also have large
magazines and can drain your ammunition in a hurry, which is the main reason
why it has the largest ammo pool out of all available guns. The SMG is
Lilith's gun of choice and is really only useful in close-range combat.
There are no separate Submachine Gun classes.

.---------------.
| Combat Rifles |
'---------------'
Combat Rifles are probably the most stable, all-around guns. They have high
Damage when compared to Pistols and SMGs, and also great Accuracy. They are
Roland's weapon specialty and are broken down into two classes: Combat Rifles
and Machine Guns.

 - Combat Rifles are faster and more accurate of the two. They tend to have
   high Accuracy and Rate of Fire and are also quick to reload. Most, if not
   all Combat Rifles fire in bursts of three or four per shot and have an
   increased Weapon Zoom. Their magazines are smaller when compared to
   Machine Guns (around 12-16 bullets). One word to describe Combat Rifles?
   Precision.

 - Machine Guns are bigger, slower, and stronger. Unlike Combat Rifles, they
   usually do not have a scope and are not as accurate. The biggest difference
   between the two classes is that Machine Guns are fully automatic, so you
   can hold the Right Trigger down and continually fire a stream of bullets.
   As a result, these guns have big magazines; in the range of 35-40 bullets.
   One word to describe Machine Guns? Power.

.----------.
| Shotguns |
'----------'
Like any Shotgun in any shooter, they are for close-range combat only. These
weapons have terrible accuracy, but can be absolutely devastating up close.
You must be patient when using a Shotgun due to their low Fire Rate, small
magazine, and slow reload times. Shotguns are comprised of two classes: Combat
Shotguns and Assault Shotguns.

 - Combat Shotguns are your traditional Shotgun: they are strong, inaccurate,
   slow to reload, and have a slower Fire Rate than Assault Shotguns. It is
   pretty much what you'd expect from a Shotgun.

 - Assault Shotguns are essentially semi-automatic Shotguns. They have higher
   Accuracy and Fire Rate than Combat Shotguns, but are not as powerful. From
   what I have seen, many Assault Shotguns have elemental properties. Assault
   Shotguns have a sort of burst fire, whereas Combat Shotguns fire one shell
   at a time.

.---------------.
| Sniper Rifles |
'---------------'
Sniper Rifles are used for silent killshots. They are the patient player's
gun, with superb Damage and Accuracy, but generally abysmal Fire Rate. They
are meant to take down enemies from afar, and despite a few select guns they
all have scopes with Weapon Zooms. This is Mordecai's pride and joy. There are
two Sniper Rifle classes: Bolt/Pump Action Rifles and Semi-Automatic Rifles.

 - Bolt/Pump Action Rifles are more powerful and have greater Accuracy of the 
   two classes, but have lower Recoil Reduction, hence the "pump" the gun
   creates when you fire a bullet. They also have lower Fire Rates. This is
   the type you want to pick if you are patiently scoping out an area from a 
   hilltop and systematically eliminating the opposition.

 - Semi-Automatic Rifles are a tad more chaotic. They are weaker and not as
   accurate (but still high Accuracy), but their Fire Rate is much higher;
   they truly are semi-automatic and are overall faster to equip, reload, and
   use in general.

.------------------.
| Rocket Launchers |
'------------------'
Rocket Launchers are for fans of destruction. This is Brick's weapon specialty
and can create a whole lot of havoc. Your own rockets can damage you if you
aren't careful! Even though Rocket Launchers aren't divided into different
classes, there are still various types of them depending on how they shoot.
Some Rocket Launchers have burst shooting that fire their entire magazine at
once, and other types travel in a spiral when shot. Rocket Launchers are great
for targeting from far away and also for taking down groups of enemies.

.--------------.
| Eridian Guns |
'--------------'
The odd man out, Eridian guns are exceptionally rare and really only found in
the later stages of the game. What makes these guns stand out is that they do
not consume ammo and instead have a recharge period after you have used up an
entire clip. There are different Eridian weapons that correspond to the
regular gun types.

Excluding Eridian Guns, all gun types of a Weapon Proficiency, which basically
states how good you are with a certain weapon. Every time you kill an enemy,
your Weapon Proficiency for that weapon type will slightly increase; you can
level up Weapon Proficiencies, which will give you stat boosts for that gun
(Damage, Accuracy, Reload Speed, etc.).

If you cruise through the game only using a Rocket Launcher, your Launcher
Proficiency will probably be around 15 if not more. If you have never touched
a Pistol in your life, then it'll stay at 1. The more you use a certain
weapon, the higher its proficiency will be. You can view a full list in the
character tab of the status menu.


.-------------.
| The Formula |______________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

When you kill an enemy or open a lootable object/chest, the Borderlands game
engine automatically creates a random gun using a special formula. The
formula itself is complicated and grossly deep, but after studying it you can
easily understand how the game is able to provide you with millions upon
millions of unique guns.

Again, special thanks goes out to the Borderlands Wiki for providing the world
with this holy grail of knowledge.

               .--------------.   .-----------.   .--------.   .-------.
   Gun Name  = | Manufacturer | + | Body Type | + | Prefix | + | Title |
               '--------------'   '-----------'   '--------'   '-------'

That doesn't sound so bad! Yeah, well that's the bare-bones formula, dumbed
down by about 100. Now it is time to break down the parts, one by one.

One side note: even if the category names, prefixes, and whatnot get too
overwhelming, simply break it down and read the words. If you have a weapon
in your inventory named the "Rusty Repeater" or "Light Machine Gun", you can
tell by the adjectives alone that they probably aren't that good. Conversely,
you might want to hold onto a "Fearsome Sniper" or a "Genocide Rifle".
Generally speaking, bad adjectives are given to bad guns and good adjectives
are given to good guns.


.---------------.
| Manufacturers |____________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

There are 11 total manufacturers in Borderlands that all produce equipment:
guns, shields, Grenade Mods, and Class Mods. Each manufacturer has their own
special traits and qualities that they put into their products. One way to
vaguely determine what type of gun you are receiving is by its manufacturer.
Marcus Kincaid does a great job of describing each brand in one or two short
sentences when you visit Ammo and Weapon Vendors.

In addition, manufacturers also grade their guns to help distinguish between
good ones and lousy ones. These grades are based on their level range. For
reasons unknown, there are no grades for weapons between Levels 1-12 for any
of the manufacturers.

Out of the 11, two (Anshin and Pangolin) do not make guns. So here are the
other nine:

.-------.
| Atlas |___________________
|             |             |   "Buy an Atlas and you too can see what it
| Lvl. 0      | Puny        |   feels like to hold the power of the gods in
| Lvl. 1-12   | N/A         |   your hands."
| Lvl. 13-21  | Champion    |
| Lvl. 22-30  | Heroic      |   Probably the top overall manufacturer. Their
| Lvl. 31-39  | Herculean   |   weapons do not have any real downsides. Atlas
| Lvl. 40-47  | Legendary   |   guns have large magazines and high Damage. 
| Lvl. 48+    | Titan       |   Most Atlas guns are white, silver, or light
|_____________|_____________|   grey.

.------.
| Dahl |____________________
|             |             |   "Dahl's guns absorb a lot of recoil, allowing
| Lvl. 0      | Rusty       |   you to stay accurate throughout the fight!"
| Lvl. 1-12   | N/A         |   
| Lvl. 13-21  | Mercenary   |   The largest manufacturer in the game, Dahl
| Lvl. 22-30  | Soldier     |   weapons have pretty high Recoil Reduction,
| Lvl. 31-39  | Freelancer  |   although its Accuracy is on the low end. Many
| Lvl. 40-47  | Veteran     |   of their weapons sport a cool camouflage 
| Lvl. 48+    | Elite       |   style.
|_____________|_____________|

.----------.
| Hyperion |________________
|             |             |   "Hyperion asks, 'What good is a gun that
| Lvl. 0      | Substandard |   doesn't shoot where you point?' Get a gun
| Lvl. 1-12   | N/A         |   that's as accurate as you are!"
| Lvl. 13-21  | Valde       |   
| Lvl. 22-30  | Melior      |   Hyperion's weapons are the ones to use if you
| Lvl. 31-39  | Ultra       |   are all out speed: they have the quickest
| Lvl. 40-47  | Magnus      |   reloads, and high Recoil Reduction and
| Lvl. 48+    | Ultimus     |   Accuracy. Precision is the name of the game.
|_____________|_____________|   The guns are often different shades of red.

.--------.
| Jakobs |__________________
|             |             |   "If it took more than one shot, you weren't
| Lvl. 0      | Plywood     |   using a Jakobs!"
| Lvl. 1-12   | N/A         |   
| Lvl. 13-21  | Classic     |   I feel like this manufacturer is kinda stuck
| Lvl. 22-30  | Vintage     |   in the past. Jakobs weapons generally have
| Lvl. 31-39  | Choice      |   incredibly high Damage, but suffer from very
| Lvl. 40-47  | Antique     |   low Fire Rate and Recoil Reduction. Their
| Lvl. 48+    | Original    |   guns have an old, western look to 'em with
|_____________|_____________|   wooden finishes.

.---------.
| Maliwan |_________________
|             |             |   "Is shooting bullets just not cool enough for
| Lvl. 0      | Obsolete    |   you? Get a Maliwan and light some people on
| Lvl. 1-12   | N/A         |   fire!"
| Lvl. 13-21  | Standard    |   
| Lvl. 22-30  | Sterling    |   If you want an elemental weapon, then look no
| Lvl. 31-39  | Prototype   |   further. Maliwan only makes elemental weapons.
| Lvl. 40-47  | Paradigm    |   Their guns have a futuristic feel to them and
| Lvl. 48+    | Pure        |   are painted with vibrant colors to match their
|_____________|_____________|   elemental affiliations.

.---------------.
| S&S Munitions |___________
|             |             |   "The S&S philosophy is: Tech plus Ammo
| Lvl. 0      | Old         |   Capacity equals I WIN!"
| Lvl. 1-12   | N/A         |   
| Lvl. 13-21  | Revised     |   The majority of guns by S&S Munitions have
| Lvl. 22-30  | Upgraded    |   oversized magazines, so reloading won't be
| Lvl. 31-39  | Enhanced    |   much of an issue during firefights. Aside from
| Lvl. 40-47  | Faultless   |   that, they are fairly average. S&S guns are
| Lvl. 48+    | Perfect     |   noted for their black and yellow stripes.
|_____________|_____________|   

.---------.
| Tediore |_________________
|             |             |   "Cheap, reliable, lightweight, and incredibly
| Lvl. 0      | Cheap       |   fast reload speeds. Tediore makes an easy to
| Lvl. 1-12   | N/A         |   use gun."
| Lvl. 13-21  | Value       |   
| Lvl. 22-30  | Special     |   This manufacturer specializes in producing
| Lvl. 31-39  | Super       |   lightweight guns that have some of the fastest
| Lvl. 40-47  | Limited     |   reload speeds in the game. However, they also
| Lvl. 48+    | Supreme     |   have low damage. Most of their weapons are
|_____________|_____________|   gray and shiny.

.--------.
| Torgue |__________________
|             |             |   "400 percent more awesome! Also, Torgue
| Lvl. 0      | Weaksauce   |   doesn't make their guns out of freakin' wood!"
| Lvl. 1-12   | N/A         |   
| Lvl. 13-21  | Power       |   It's hard to figure out from the quote, but
| Lvl. 22-30  | Force       |   Torgue weapons have higher Damage than most of
| Lvl. 31-39  | Excellent   |   the other manufacturers; they also have low
| Lvl. 40-47  | Awesome     |   Accuracy and Recoil Reduction. Most Torgue
| Lvl. 48+    | Ultimate    |   guns are sleek and jet black.
|_____________|_____________|

.--------.
| Vladof |__________________
|             |             |   "Vladof: you don't need to be a better shot,
| Lvl. 0      | Surplus     |   you just need to shoot more bullets!"
| Lvl. 1-12   | N/A         |   
| Lvl. 13-21  | Peasants    |   Vladof weapons have a very high Fire Rate,
| Lvl. 22-30  | Peoples     |   thus consuming bullets faster than most other
| Lvl. 31-39  | Workers     |   guns, and have high Recoil Reduction. They
| Lvl. 40-47  | Soldiers    |   unfortunately suffer from below average
| Lvl. 48+    | Patriots    |   Accuracy. Their guns are mainly orange.
|_____________|_____________|

Even though this component of the formula is crucial to understanding what
type of weapon you've got on your hands, the manufacturer or the grade is not
included in the weapon's name. You can see what type of manufacturer the gun
was produced on the gun's stat card in your inventory.

Same goes with the manufacturer grade; it's not actually a part of the name,
but you can see what grade your gun has in your inventory by sorting (RT and
LT) your equipment by manufacturer.


.------------.
| Body Types |_______________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

There are five different body types for each of the available guns. I am not
sure if this is the component that actually alters the appearance of your
weapon, but different body types have different stats.

 - Body Type 1: completely average, no increased or decreased stats
 
 - Body Type 2: high Damage, low Fire Rate, low Recoil Reduction
 
 - Body Type 3: very low Damage, high Fire Rate, very high Recoil Reduction

 - Body Type 4: very high Damage, very low Fire Rate, very low Recoil
   Reduction

 - Body Type 5: the best body type; very high Damage, very high Fire Rate,
   high Recoil Reduction

Guns with Body Type 5 are the best and also the rarest. Now the guns simply
don't have "Type 1" or "Type 4" in their name. That would be too easy. Here is
a table of their code names and what body types they correspond to:

.------------.
| Body Types |____________________________________________________________
|                  |          |          |          |          |          |
| Weapon           |  Type 1  |  Type 2  |  Type 3  |  Type 4  |  Type 5  |
|------------------+----------+----------+----------+----------+----------|
| Pistols          |    BLR   |    RF    |    TK    |    HRD   |    TMP   |
| Revolvers        |    RV    |    DL    |    MAL   |    KLR   |    AX    |
| SMGs             |    TD    |    KKA   |    TEK   |    RF    |    HX    |
| Combat Rifles    |    CR    |    HVY   |    TCH   |    HLK   |    AR    |
| Shotguns         |    SG    |    SPR   |    ZX    |    BA    |    ZPR   |
| Sniper Rifles    |    GGN   |    LB    |    VRR   |    DVL   |    PPZ   |
| Rocket Launchers |    RPG   |     -    |    SPC   |     -    |    RWL   |
|__________________|__________|__________|__________|__________|__________|

Rocket Launchers never have a Body Type 2 or Body Type 4. So if you stumble
upon an HX 22 Double Stinger, you'll see the "HX" and think "hot diggity damn,
that's a good SMG!" Pay attention to those code names! But that is only one
piece of the puzzle...

One thing I will admit that I don't understand. For all guns, there are
numbers attached to the body type code, such as in an RPG51 Spread Rocket
Launcher weapon. The "RPG" applies to a Type 1 Rocket Launcher, but I am not
sure what the "51" is. Unless I figure out what the numbers apply to, I'd say
just ignore them.


.----------.
| Prefixes |_________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

For most weapons, the prefix is the adjective describing the gun. It usually
informs you what attributes the gun may possess. There are a few different
categories, and every weapon contains at least one prefix (it may have more).
Generally speaking, the more prefixes a gun has, the longer the name is, the
more traits it has, and the better the gun. Many prefixes = good gun. For the
most part. Doesn't mean that a gun with only one prefix is bad... just that
more is better.

.------------------.
| Elemental Prefix |
'------------------'
This category is brief, because it only applies to elemental weapons. Each
element has its own set of prefixes, and within each element their are four
tiers. A Tier 1 Fire gun may be a little wimpy, yet a Tier 4 Fire gun is like
Satan himself punching you in the face.

.--------.
| Prefix |______________________________________________________________
|           |              |              |              |              |
| Tier      | Fire         | Shock        | Corrosive    | Explosive    |
|-----------+--------------+--------------+--------------+--------------|
| Tier 1    | Flaming      | Shock        | Corrosive    | Exploding    |
| Tier 2    | Incendiary   | Static       | Caustic      | Blast        |
| Tier 3    | Burning      | Lightning    | Vitriolic    | Detonating   |
| Tier 4    | Combustion   | Fulgurating  | Pestilent    | Erupting     |
|___________|______________|______________|______________|______________|

.---------------------.
| Manufacturer Prefix |
'---------------------'
Back to manufacturers again! You know how each manufacturer has special
attributes and characteristics? Well the manufacturer prefix tells you how
much of those perks are infused in your gun. Again, it is ranked by tiers, and
there are three tiers. The prefix is in the form of a code or an adjective;
sometimes both depending on the manufacturer and the tier.

Keep in mind that the negative aspects of a manufacturer also goes up the
higher the tier. For example, Jakobs guns have high Damage and very low Fire
Rate. So a Tier 3 has higher Damage and lower Fire Rate than a Tier 1. You're
getting the bad along with the good!

.--------.
| Prefix |________________________________________________________________
|              |                   |                   |                  |
| Manufacturer |      Tier 1       |      Tier 2       |      Tier 3      |

| Jakobs       | -      Plywood    | "ZZ"   -          | "XX"   -         |
| Maliwan      | -      Obsolete   | "B"    Blue       | "C"    Cobalt    |
| S&S          | -      Old        | ".2"   -          | ".3"   -         |
| Tediore      | -      Cheap      | "-A"   -          | "-B"   -         |
| Torgue       | -      Weaksauce  | -      Iron       | -      Steel     |
| Vladof       | -      Rusty      | "/V2"  -          | "/V3"  -         |
|______________|___________________|___________________|__________________|

This prefix is a little tricker to grasp, since there are a lot of random
letters, numbers, and adjectives. When it comes to the categories where there
is both a code and a prefix, that does not mean that both will be featured
together on a gun. You'll never find a TCH U Urban Pounder. It's either "U"
or "Urban", not both together.

Quiz time! You run into a VRR29B Erupting Sniper. Whatcha got? Break it down
as far as you can:

 - "VRR" is the body type, so you're looking at a Body Type 3.

 - "B" is referring to a Tier 2 Maliwan manufacturer prefix, which means it
   has average manufacturer qualities.

 - "Erupting" means that it is a Tier 4 Explosive prefix. That's a pretty good
   gun with badass Explosive elemental properties.

.---------------.
| Weapon Prefix |
'---------------'
This prefix is a bit easier to manage since they are basic adjectives, but
there are a ton more compared to the other two categories. Weapon prefixes are
grouped by weapon type (Pistol, Sniper Rifle, etc.) and determine what bonus
stats your weapon will have. 

This is not linked to manufacturer or elements, so weapon prefixes are
completely standalone and simply state what types of ability boosts your gun
may have. They may give you higher Damage or Recoil Reduction, or give you
lower Damage or Accuracy. Again, not all perks are good. Some weapon prefixes
refer to the quality of parts the gun is made out of, so something like
"Combat" refers to average overall stats, while "Genocide" has excellent
overall stats.

Phew! And that is all your prefix needs. Now onto the final piece of the
formula: the title.


.--------.
| Titles |___________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Titles aren't as important as prefixes. While prefixes act as the weapon's
adjective, the title is the noun. What the gun is. Like weapon prefixes,
titles correspond to different abilities and attributes a gun may have. Some
titles do not even have any special boosts or characteristics; it's just a
name.

There are three types of titles: common titles, legendary titles, and
pearlescent titles. Common titles refer to the majority of the game's guns,
but legendary and pearlescent encompass some of the game's best available
weapons.

.---------------.
| Common Titles |
'---------------'
The common titles are found on any common or uncommon gun (ranging from white
to purple). Most of these titles give your weapon increased stats just like
the weapon prefixes, but some don't do anything.

 - "AR" is the body type, and that corresponds with Body Type 5. Good stuff.
 
 - "Deathly" is the prefix (a weapon prefix), a Combat Rifle prefix that gives
   the gun High Damage and Recoil Reduction.

 - "Stomper" is the title (a common title); a standard Combat Rifle title
   that gives your gun High Damage.

Voila! Judging by the body type, it is top-notch, and the prefix and title
mean it packs a mean punch. That one was a little easy. Now what about a
GGN5/V3 Fearsome Surkov? 

.-------------------------.
| GGN5/V3 Fearsome Surkov |
'-------------------------'
 - "GGN" is the body type... Body Type 1. Blegh, kinda average.

 - "/V3" is the prefix (a manufacturer prefix). This is a Vladof Tier 3 grade,
   which means that it has really good manufacturer stats.

 - "Fearsome" is another prefix (a weapon prefix), which means the gun is a
   Bolt/Pump Action Rifle with excellent overall stats.

 - "Surkov" is the title (a legendary title), which gives the weapon High
   Reload Speed and Fire Rate.

That's a pretty decent legendary Bolt/Pump Action Rifle. If you are as into
Borderlands as I am and want to systematically dissect a weapon as soon as you
pick it up, then try to study up on this section. Hope I could help!

| Unique Weapons |___________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Okay, this is the final section for guns! There are some unique guns that are
either dropped by bosses or given to you for completing missions. While their
actual numerical stats may range, they have the same name and abilities per
playthrough. Not all unique weapons have a 100% drop rate.

 * Only found in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

'============================================================================'

Protean Grenades become available early in the game, and different grenade
mods give them special abilities. The mechanics behind grenades aren't nearly
as in depth as guns, so there isn't much to talk about. Grenade mods are split
up by manufacturer, as some manufacturers only make certain mods.

 * Transfusion grenades have no elemental affiliation and are only made by
   Anshin. Jakobs does not manufacture grenade mods.

 - Rain: Once detonated, the grenade pops into the air and rains down its
   corresponding element onto enemies.

 - Bouncing Bettie: Once detonated, the grenade bounces into the air and
   releases shrapnel in a circle formation.

 - Longbow: As soon as you throw one, the grenade automatically teleports to
   the nearest enemy and goes off.

 - Contact: These are more like your traditional grenade, but they will
   automatically explode when they touch an enemy.

 - Rubberized: Just like Contact grenades, they'll detonate when they come in
   contact with an enemy. But these grenades violently bounce off any surface.

 - Sticky: When you throw this grenade, it'll stick to any surface (including
   enemies) and explode soon after.

 - MIRV: These are similar to Bouncing Betties, but MIRV Grenades actually
   deploy smaller grenades when they detonate.

 - Proximity Mine: When thrown, the grenade stick to a surface and will go off
   if an enemy approaches it. It'll detonate if untouched for a while.

 - Transfusion: Once detonated, the grenade releases energy waves that travel
   to the nearest enemy, drain their health, and give it to you.

'============================================================================'

Shields are also randomly generated in Borderlands and their perks are chosen
depending on certain criteria. Just like guns, you have prefixes and titles
that help determine a shield's makeup. If you survived the gun portion of this
section, then this should be manageable.

Just like with guns, shields have prefixes that vaguely describe the

'============================================================================'

As if there weren't enough ways to modify your character and their equipment,
you have Class Mods. Your character can equip a Class Mod, which mainly boosts
your character class's skills. Like other equipment, Class Mods are color 
coded, so even if you have two of the same Class Mods they will have different
stats depending on the text color.

All Class Mods have a primary boost that boost a random stat or ability, and
at least one skill boost (you can have up to three skill boosts). There are
also two alternate boosts that may replace the primary boost. So there is a

'============================================================================'

.---------.
| Bandits |__________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Pandora is flooded with bandits, and as a result, they are your main form of
resistance during your adventures. Bandits are not known for being very
bright; in fact, this can work against you because they are not afraid to jump
into a firefight and can be reckless. Camps and outposts are found in almost
every main area in Borderlands, and bandits are often grouped together. They
aren't completely brain dead and are still known to seek cover and hide. Their
weak points are their head.

.-------------.
| Bandit Thug |
'-------------'
The lowest ranked bandits, Bandit Thugs are very weak and only often armed
with poor Pistols. They wear black masks with yellow eyepieces and regular
bandit garb that isn't meant to absorb bullets. The ratio of Bandit Thugs to
other bandit types is pretty high.

.---------------.
| Bandit Raider |
'---------------'
The next level up on the social ladder, Bandit Raiders are tougher, smarter,
and better equipped than Bandit Thugs. Bandit Raiders often carry semi- or
fully-automatic weapons such as SMGs or Combat Rifles. They also wear shields
and can use grenades from behind cover. These guys wear silver masks with
white eyepieces.

 - Badass Raiders wear spiked shoulder plates and kneepads, and usually carry
   Combat Rifles. They don't take cover as much as other bandits due to their
   armored plating, so Badass Raiders usually fight out in the open.

.---------------.
| Bandit Killer |
'---------------'
The Bandit Killers are the toughest bandits around and are also the most
infrequent. They always carry some variant of a Combat Rifle (true Combat
Rifles or Machine Guns) and are shielded. Bandit Killers look more similar to
Thugs, but wear black masks with a cross pattern and red eyepieces.

.--------.
| Psycho |
'--------'
As their name implies, Psychos are pretty crazy. They are completely shirtless
and wear bright orange pants (prison uniforms?), with white masks strapped
onto their faces. They often shout weird and slightly creepy phrases such as
"strip the flesh, salt the wound!". In other words, they are easy to pick out
of a crowd.

Psychos attack using axes and will almost always run towards you without
hesitation; sometimes they throw their axes at you from far away. It is best
to keep them at bay because their melee attacks can really hurt. Also, on rare
occasions Psychos will hold a grenade in the air while chasing after you; an
effective kamikaze tactic.

 - Badass Psychos are about three times the size of a regular Psycho and have
   disproportionate arms (one is huge while the other is t-rex-sized). Make
   them one of your main priorities if seen in a battle.

.----------------.
| Burning Psycho |
'----------------'
These guys are very similar to regular Psychos, but wear skull masks and have
red mohawks. Oh, and they are on fire. Burning Psychos are resistant to
Incendiary attacks and can set you on fire, making them more dangerous than
their brethren.

.----------------------.
| Mutant Midget Psycho |
'----------------------'
Mutant Midget Psychos and Psychos are mirror images of each other... well,
aside from the fact that these guys are much shorter. They also have high-
pitched voices that can get very annoying, but help give away their location.
They can be harder to hit due to their size, so look down if you have to.

.-------------------.
| Midget Shotgunner |
'-------------------'
Midget Shotgunners look just like Mutant Midget Psychos, but are equipped with
a Shotgun instead of an axe. The gun is usually two sizes too big and causes
them to move at a sluggish rate, but the blast can take a big chunk out of
your health or shield. Sometimes the Shotgun blast knocks them on their ass,
giving you an opening to attack.

.---------.
| Bruiser |
'---------'
When standing next to fully clothed bandits and skinny Psychos, Bruisers stick
out like sore thumbs. These jacked freaks tower over most bandit enemies and
have mohawks similar to Burning Psychos. Bruiser match Berserkers in terms of
size and mean streaks. They are very slow, but their Combat Rifles pack a
devastating punch. Their slow movements and choice to ignore cover make them
easy to pick off with Sniper Rifles or other long-range weapons.

 - Badass Bruisers are even bigger than the muscular Bruisers: they are about
   twice the size and wear metal masks that cover their entire head. Most of
   them wield Combat Rifles/Machine Guns, but some use Rocket Launchers.

.-----------.
| Out Rider |
'-----------'
Only found in the Dahl Headlands and the Salt Flats, bandit Out Riders are
Runners stolen and modified by the bandits. These vehicles are pretty similar
to your own Runner (there are machine gun and rocket launcher Out Riders),
and are often accompanied by a couple Psychos. The most practical way to take
down an Out Rider is with a vehicle of your own.


.-------.
| Skags |____________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Skags are kinda like a cross between an armadillo and a dog. They are similar
to canines but their head and upper body is covered in thick plating. Most
Skag types have the same attacks: they can use their claws, leap at you, and
use their incredibly long tongues to smack you. Skags also love to show off by
roaring, which exposes their mouths for critical hits.

Skags live in large groups in underground dens; there's usually one out on
patrol, but once there is a disturbance more will emerge from their dens, one
at a time. Since Skag dens are built in clusters, you'll often fight Skags
together in groups. Their weak points are their three-jawed mouth.

.----------.
| Skag Pup |
'----------'
These juvenile Skags are very small and weak; arguably the most worthless
enemies in the game (and perfect candidates for the "My Brother is an Italian
Plumber" Achievement). They are more of an annoyance than anything and really
only encountered in the first few stages of the game. 

.------------.
| Skag Whelp |
'------------'
Skag Whelps are just like Skag Pups, but a bit larger and tougher. Still, they
have not reached maturity and are not as big of a threat as other Skags. Skag
Whelps are mainly encountered in the early portions of the game.

.------------.
| Adult Skag |
'------------'
Adult Skags are a bit darker in color than Skag Pups and Whelps, but the main
way to tell them apart is their size (they are bigger than Whelps). Their
attacks are stronger, their tongues are longer, and they can jump farther.

.--------------.
| Spitter Skag |
'--------------'
Spitter Skags are about the same size as an Adult Skag, but their skin and
armor are shades of green and they have large spines on their back. Spitter
Skags can shoot globs of toxic goo out of their mouths that can deal Corrosive
damage to you. They are resistant to Corrosive attacks.

.------------.
| Elder Skag |
'------------'
Elder Skags have large spines on their backs and can spit acid like Spitter
Skags, but are reddish-orange in color. These ones are incredibly fast and use
a charge attack that can knock you down. Elder Skags have pretty much mastered
the attacks of all lower-ranking Skags.

 - There are Badass Skags that are infused with one of three elemental
   properties: Badass Fire Skags, Badass Shock Skags, and Badass Corrosive
   Skags. In addition to regular Elder Skag attacks, these guys can breathe
   elemental projectiles out of their mouth.

.------------.
| Alpha Skag |
'------------'
An Alpha Skag is the top dog in their pack; there is usually only one or two
in a Skag den and are much, much larger than the other Skag types. Their armor
is much tougher than the rest and it is recommended that you only target their
mouth or backside. Alpha Skags have the farthest jumping range and typically
attack their prey by pouncing or charging. Definitely the most dangerous Skag
type around.

 - Alpha Skags can be Badass, and there are three elemental types: Badass Fire
   Alphas, Badass Shock Alphas, and Badass Corrosive Alphas. Just like regular
   Badass Skags, these enemies can fire an elemental beam of energy out and
   are the same size/toughness as an Alpha Skag.


.------.
| Rakk |_____________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Rakk are large flying creatures that mainly live in Rakk nests (orange bulbs
found on the ground) and will deploy when they sense danger, though there are
many instances where you'll see Rakk out in the open. Rakk also hang upside-
down from rock arches like bats. They are strange bird-bat hybrids and are
about as big as a pterodactyl, but are fragile when matched up against a Vault
Hunter and overall do not pose much of a threat.

Rakk are quiet creatures and you may not even know you're getting attacked
until four of them have completed the process of divebombing your unsuspecting
ass. Pay attention to your HUD and if you see a cluster of red blips, then
there may be a group of Rakk overhead. Rakk do not have any weak points, but
Shotguns work very well against these aerial monsters.

.------.
| Rakk |
'------'
A regular Rakk is usually brown in color and the weakest of their type. They
are usually found in big parties and may circle over large areas like
vultures. Unlike most enemies in Borderlands, Rakk do not drop any loot.

 - You can encounter Badass Rakk, though they are incredibly rare (I think you
   only find them in the Rust Commons West). They come in three types: Badass
   Fire Rakk, Badass Shock Rakk, and Badass Corrosive Rakk. Badass Rakk don't
   divebomb you, but instead swoop down low and breathe elemental projectiles
   on you.

.-------------.
| Feeder Rakk |
'-------------'
Feeder Rakk are slightly larger and more infrequent than Rakk; their bright
blue skin makes them stand out. You usually only find one per group. Feeder
Rakk drop loot when killed.

.--------------.
| Bloated Rakk |
'--------------'
Bloated Rakk are the biggest Rakk out there and genuinely look bloated. They
have a lime green complexion and are as rare as Feeder Rakk. Bloated Rakk
leave behind a lot of loot when killed - probably the reason why they are so
abnormally large.

.---------------.
| Defender Rakk |
'---------------'
Only encountered during the Rakk Hive boss battle. They are white and match
Feeder Rakk in terms of stats.

.---------------.
| Kamikaze Rakk |
'---------------'
Only encountered during the Rakk Hive boss battle. Kamikaze Rakk are bright
yellow/orange (they kinda look radioactive) and will explode when they dive
at you. Make sure to shoot them while they're still far away!


.----------.
| Scythids |_________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

These stupid little bugs are commonly found in the Dahl Headlands, but also
appear in areas later in the game. Scythids look sort of like slugs, but some
of the bigger ones have long legs, and some can even temporarily fly. They
have no weak point.

Their cries do not match their appearance at all: Scythids produce a very
high-pitched "ree!" sound when they attack (usually by lunging at you), and
sometimes it's usually the only indicator that one is close by. These beasts
live underground and can pop up when least expected. However, Scythids are
generally considered pushovers compared to the planet's fauna and are mainly
used as Runner bait.

.-----------------.
| Scythid Crawler |
'-----------------'
These are the weakest and most pathetic form of the Scythids: Scythid Crawlers
are very small and are never found by themselves. They are about the size of
your character's boot and only have a lunge attack. They can be hard to find
on the ground since they jump all over the place, so automatic weapons such as
Machine Pistols or SMGs work well. Then again, melee is your best option.

.----------------.
| Desert Scythid |
'----------------'
Desert Scythids are slightly larger than Scythid Crawlers and have long legs,
which makes them faster and harder to track. If I am not mistaken, they are
the only Scythid type that can temporarily fly. Again, their agility makes
them difficult to see, but they have low HP.

.------------------.
| Bursting Scythid |
'------------------'
Bursting Scythids are a larger version of the Scythid Crawler, but just as
weak. Their legs are concealed and only attack by jumping, but their main
caveat is that these fellas explode when killed. The explosion can damage you
and/or your vehicle, so your melee attack is out of the question.

.---------------.
| Giant Scythid |
'---------------'
Contrary to most types, Giant Scythids are big, slow, and have a lot of HP.
Giant Scythids have an interesting light blue/brown color combo goin' on. 
Their jump attack is severely limited due to their size, so all you have to do
is keep your distance from their melee strikes.

 - Giant Scythids have a Badass form: Badass Fire Scythids, Badass Shock
   Scythids, and Badass Corrosive Scythids. In addition to the normal Giant
   Scythid attacks, these Badass guys can spit elemental projectiles at you.


.------------.
| Spiderants |_______________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

I guess you could consider Spiderants a cross between a spider and an ant.
They are large, four-legged bug creatures that operate under some sort of
hierarchy system. Like Scythids, Spiderants live underground and will emerge
from the earth when prey enters the vicinity. Their weak point is their
abdomen (the stinger, butt-looking part on their backside).

They are fast, fidgety, and dangerous. Spiderants are kinda like Skags in that
their front portion of their body is covered in thick armor. Chitin extends
over their head and forelimbs and leaves their abdomen exposed. The best way 
to eliminate one is to get behind them and target their abdomen.

.---------------.
| Spiderantling |
'---------------'
Spiderantlings are little Spiderant babies: they are underdeveloped and
vulnerable but can still attack. They aren't seen in the wild that often,
probably because they are too young to stray from the nest. Since their armor
isn't fully developed, shooting their front is an option.

.------------------.
| Spiderant Worker |
'------------------'
A Spiderant Worker is the lowest ranking a Spiderant can attain, and therefore
are the most common and expendable. Spiderant Workers are slightly larger than
Spiderantlings and have tan armor. They mainly attack by jumping at their
opponents, but are not as fast as other Spiderants.

.----------------.
| Spiderant Gyro |
'----------------'
Spiderant Gyros are about the same size as a Spiderant Worker and are dark
blue. These enemies are sort of like armadillos in that they attack by curling
into a ball and rolling after you. This attack is powerful and can send you
backwards. Spiderant Gyros have very small abdomens.

.-------------------.
| Spiderant Soldier |
'-------------------'
Spiderant Soldiers are tough warriors that are bulkier than Workers and Gyros.
They are easy to spot due to their turquoise carapace and long-range attacks.
Spiderant Soldiers usually stay out of everyone's way and attacks by shooting
silk web balls out of their abdomen. You can target and kill a Spiderant
Soldier from the front by shooting their abdomen when it's sticking up in the
air.

.----------------.
| Spiderant King |
'----------------'
The Spiderant King is a brown Spiderant that towers over all others below it.
They closely resemble Spiderant Workers in appearance and attack strategy,
although Spiderant Kings have been known to shoot web balls like the Soldiers.
What makes these foes hard to take down is their excessively large (armored)
head and very small abdomen.

.-----------------.
| Spiderant Queen |
'-----------------'
Like in the case of some insects, Spiderants are a female-driven society. The
matriarch is even larger than a Spiderant King and much more powerful. The
Spiderant Queen mainly uses a long distance web ball attack like Soldiers,
but have huge forelimbs and isn't afraid to use them. Still, Spiderant Queens 
are easier to take down than Kings thanks to their incredibly large abdomen.

 - A Spiderant Queen can come in a Badass form: Badass Spiderant Burners,
   Badass Spiderant Zappers, and Badass Spiderant Corruptors. Like most
   Badass creatures, they have their own elemental affiliation and can use
   long-range elemental attacks.


.---------------.
| Crimson Lance |____________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

The Atlas Corporation is the main antagonist in Borderlands, and the Crimson
Lance is the corporation's henchmen. These militaristic wackjobs rule over
most of Pandora with an iron fist, and you only begin to encounter them late
in the game.

The Crimson Lance are the cream of the crop in terms of opponents. They have
the most advanced weapons, use powerful shields and wear thick armor, and are
very intelligent on the battlefield. You really only scratch the surface of
the organization in the main game, but there are still a few ranks that you
need to watch out for. Like all humans, their weak point is their head and
Corrosive attacks work very well against their red armor.

.----------------.
| Lance Infantry |
'----------------'
Cannon fodder. Don't get me wrong - they are still tough - but Lance Infantry
are the basic soldier unit in the Crimson Lance. They have basic silver armor
with some leg paddings, but are not held in the same regard as other Crimson
Lance.

They can pretty much have any weapon type, but Combat Rifles, SMGs, and
Shotguns seem to be the most common. Their versatility makes them unexpected
and dangerous. Lance Infantry also use different grenade mods and will often
deploy them from behind cover.

 - Badass Infantry also wear silver armor, but it is a lot bulkier. Their
   armor can make them resistant to most attacks, so only aim for the head
   when dealing with one.

.----------------.
| Lance Engineer |
'----------------'
Lance Engineers are slower moving than Lance Infantry, but that is because
they wear thicker, dark red armor. They always wear large shields that can
sometimes be resistant to elements. Like the Infantry, Lance Engineers are
highly trained in virtually all weapon types.

Lance Engineers are sort of like the support group: they can deploy Scorpio
Turrets to aid in combat and hide behind. Killing the Engineer makes the
turret disappear, or you can wait it out and let the turret disappear after a
minute. But what makes Lance Engineers so annoying is that commonly use
Transfusion grenades to steal your HP and give it to them.

 - Badass Engineers are also bigger and badder versions of the normal ones.
   They can also use Scorpio Turrets, and their thick armor makes anything but
   headshots useless.

.----------------.
| Lance Defender |
'----------------'
Lance Defenders are the bulkiest of all: their armor is the thickest and they
carry gigantic shields that cover over half of their body. Since they only
have one free hand, most Lance Defenders only use Pistols and they cannot
duck or take cover behind objects like other Crimson Lance. Their shields
absorb all damage, so headshots are the only option when fighting one.

 - Badass Defenders are hulking monsters that carry even larger shields, but
   their proportions are still the same. Still, treat them like regular Lance
   Defenders and run away while aiming for their noggin.

.-------------------.
| Lance Royal Guard |
'-------------------'
Only encountered in the boss fight against Master McCloud. They wear special
purple armor and otherwise have the same mannerisms as Engineers. You will
fight them later on in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC.


.-----------.
| Guardians |________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Ever since pursuits of the Vault increased, the Guardians have begun appearing
on Pandora in retaliation. These ghastly aliens are the supposed "Guardians of
the Vault", which holds up when you consider that you only fight them at the
very end of your quest to reach the Vault. The Guardians have a very wiry 
frame and are incredibly wispy as they almost glide just above the ground's
surface.

Guardians have a very low amount of health, but they are all protected by
incredibly large shields that are among the hardest to deplete. Guardians come
in all different forms, but all have the same general appearance. Their heads
are the weak points, but it's a little deceiving because of their long, droopy
necks: you'll want to aim near their chest in order to hit their low hanging
heads. 

.-----------------.
| Guardian Wraith |
'-----------------'
Only encountered during the side mission "Ghosts of the Vault". Guardian
Wraiths carry energy swords and mainly use close-range attacks.

.------------------.
| Guardian Spectre |
'------------------'
Only encountered during the side mission "Ghosts of the Vault". Guardian
Spectres are larger than Wraiths and use the same sword slash attacks. They
also have the ability to teleport.

.--------------------.
| Principal Guardian |
'--------------------'
Principal Guardians are your standard Guardian soldier. They wield daggers and
like Guardian Wraiths, only attack up close. What makes them a pain is that
they are very fast and zig-zag back and forth across an arena in order to get
close to you. Their miniature teleportations makes it hard to hit them from
afar, so close-range tactics may work out best.

 - You can encounter Badass Guardians that take on the same appearance as
   Principal Guardians. Like with all Badass enemies, Badass Guardians are
   bigger than their counterparts and a lot harder to bring down.

.---------------.
| Arch Guardian |
'---------------'
Arch Guardians rarely get up close and personal and choose to stay in the
background and fight from there. Arch Guardians will plant themselves in the
ground and launch huge missiles at you like a living, breathing mortar. Arch
Guardians have large purple cannons on their backs which distinguishes them
from other Guardian types.

.---------------.
| Sera Guardian |
'---------------'
Definitely the most obnoxious Guardian type, Sera Guardians fly high in the
air and can attack you over incredibly long distances. They have long purple
wings and usually float in the air when ready to attack; Sera Guardians will
either fire energy balls at you or use a sort of tractor beam to deplete your
health. The problem with Sera Guardians is that they are often so far out of
reach that the only way to properly kill one is with a Sniper Rifle or some
other gun with Weapon Zoom.


.---------------.
| Other Enemies |____________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

.-----------------.
| Larva Crab Worm |
'-----------------'
There is only one type of Crab Worms in the main game. These elusive creatures
resemble giant purple crayfish and are only encountered in a few select areas.
Larva Crab Worms live underground and usually only stick halfway out of the
ground when in attack mode.

Most Larva Crab Worms are very slow since they only crawl halfway out of the
earth, but they have the ability to burrow back underground and pop up
somewhere else. This makes them hard to track and harder to kill. They attack
by shooting projectiles at you. Their weak point is their lone eye, which is a
one-hit KO if successfully hit.

| BOSS: Nine-Toes, Pinky, Digit |____________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Nine-Toes - Level: 5               Resist: None                            |
| Pinky     - Level: 4               Resist: None                            |
| Digit     - Level: 4               Resist: None                            |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Nine-Toes brings his two Skag pets along for the ride. Things are a lot    |
| tougher when it's three on one, so you might have an easier time if you    |
| eliminate Nine-Toes before focusing on Pinky and Digit. Sounds weird to    |
| prioritize like this, but keep in mind that Nine-Does has long-range       |
| firepower and can hit you from anywhere, so it's harder to kill the two    |
| Skags with Nine-Toes shooting at you from a distance.                      |
|                                                                            |
| The arena is pretty big, but doesn't offer a lot of cover. There are three |
| tall poles in the center which act as cover, and there is stadium-style    |
| seating surrounding the central pit that you can run across. For the most  |
| part stay in the middle so you have access to hiding spots.                |
|                                                                            |
| Nine-Toes is powerful, but in the end he is a regular human-based enemy.   |
| Lower his shield with a mid- to long-range gun while aiming at his head;   |
| the Lady Finger is a nice choice if you don't have anything better. Also   |
| utilize your Action Skill: they all come in handy depending on your        |
| character class: Roland's Scorpio Turret and Lilith's Phasewalk offer some |
| defensive output on the side. Overall, Nine-Toes shouldn't last long if    |
| you score several headshots in succession.                                 |
|                                                                            |
| Pinky and Digit fight like regular Skags but have armored plating that     |
| makes them tough to bring down. Since they will always be pursuing you,    |
| stick to a close-range weapon since it's hard to create separation. Or you |
| can try running around the outer perimeter and then firing as they chase   |
| after you. Just treat them like the Skags they are - you should be fine.   |

| BOSS: Bone Head |__________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 11              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Bone Head is one powerful dude who wields a vicious SMG that can rip your  |
| HP bar to shreds. If you entered the camp via the southern entrance like I |
| suggested, you'll have access to the balcony on the other side of the main |
| gate. Here you have the height advantage over Bone Head as well as a low   |
| wall to hide behind.                                                       |
|                                                                            |
| Bone Head is accompanied by a few Level 10 Bandit Raiders and Burning      |
| Psychos, but you might want to focus on the big cheese himself; he is easy |
| to distinguish from his lackeys by his bone mask. Try to enter the area    |
| undetected so you can score the first hit - either aim for his head with a |
| powerful Sniper Rifle or shoot one of the elemental barrels littering the  |
| camp just as he walks by.                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| Bone Head and the Bandit Raiders keep their distance, allowing you to stay |
| behind the wall on the balcony and occasionally peek over the edge to take |
| a couple shots. Only the Burning Psychos run to your location, so you will |
| have to slay any that run up on the balcony with you. Otherwise, take your |
| time and allow your shields to recharge if they get too low.               |
|                                                                            |
| Employ a patient gameplan if you feel yourself getting overwhelmed and do  |
| not worry if Bone Head's shield keeps recharging: it's pretty easy to      |
| drain if you score headshots and even easier with a Shock weapon. And of   |
| course, your Action Skill always comes in handy.                           |

| BOSS: Roid Rage Psycho |___________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 15              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Well, the Roid Rage Psycho certainly looks the part: he is a hulking mass  |
| of muscle and pent-up anger. For a guy his size, he is also pretty mobile. |
| His close-up attacks include basic punches and hooks, as well as a         |
| shockwave slam attack that can shoot you across the arena like a missile.  |
|                                                                            |
| However, those moves don't even come close to his long-range grenade       |
| attack. In fact, the Roid Rage Psycho uses MIRV Grenades. For those who    |
| are unfamiliar: MIRV Grenades is a Grenade Mod that causes the grenade to  |
| release several miniature grenades when detonated (there's an Inception    |
| joke in there somewhere). If you are caught in the brunt of the blasts,    |
| then you are going to be in a world of hurt.                               |
|                                                                            |
| Based on this information, it's best not to get too far away from the boss |
| and force him to chuck grenades at you. If he does throw one, the best     |
| advice is to run towards the boss and past him to avoid most of the blast. |
|                                                                            |
| An army of Mutant Psycho Midgets join the fray as soon as the boss battle  |
| begins. They will likely be fodder and minor annoyances, but it's best to  |
| keep a few around in case you are on your last legs and need your Second   |
| Wind. But for the majority: smoke 'em.                                     |
|                                                                            |
| Even though the Roid Rage Psycho is wearing a helmet, still aim at his     |
| head for critical hits. Elemental weapons work nicely here, as does your   |
| Action Skill.                                                              |

| BOSS: Sledge |_____________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 18              Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Sledge, the meathead that is ruling over the Arid Badlands with an iron    |
| fist, is finally within reach. This boss is very powerful, is covered head |
| to toe in armor, and fights just like a Bruiser. Like any human enemy, you |
| must aim for the head for critical hits; this is easy due to his enlarged  |
| helmet and slow body movement.                                             |
|                                                                            |
| What Sledge has going for him is his incredibly deadly weapons: he wields  |
| a booming Shotgun that, like any Shotgun, lowers in accuracy the farther   |
| you get away, and a hammer that is used to create close-range shockwaves.  |
| What Sledge has against him is that these two weapons aren't very useful   |
| when far away. With that information in hand, one can deduce that the best |
| survival solution is to stay the hell away from Sledge.                    |
|                                                                            |
| The room where you fight Sledge is deceptively large. You may get stuck    |
| here and there due to the narrow corridors and random dead ends, but it is |
| a very large room and incredibly easy to keep away from the boss while you |
| whittle away his HP bar.                                                   |
|                                                                            |
| Sledge starts off with a hefty shield, so use any Shock-based weapon that  |
| you may have in order to drain it in a hurry. If you do not possess one,   |
| then any other powerful mid- to long-range weapon will do. Just be warned  |
| that Sledge's shield has a high recharge rate and may recharge several     |
| times during the fight.                                                    |
|                                                                            |
| Keep an eye out for Bandit Thugs and Psychos that enter the room from the  |
| two sides. They can be a pain, but can also greatly aid you if you become  |
| crippled.                                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| Sledge may possess colossal strength, but you can literally run circles    |
| around him due to his sluggish speed and the size of the room. Run to the  |
| opposite end of the room (or even open the entrance and step out onto the  |
| bridge) if you need to heal yourself with a Healing Kit, then jump back in |
| the fray when ready.                                                       |

| BOSS: Mad Mel |____________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 20              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| The boss fight against Mad Mel fits the theme of the Dahl Headlands in     |
| that it is essentially a vehicular battle. However, it's almost guaranteed |
| that your vehicle will suffer intense damage and likely blow up during the |
| course of the fight. The general consensus seems to be that fighting the   |
| boss is much easier with your Runner, but I found the fight to be much     |
| simpler when on foot and using regular guns.                               |
|                                                                            |
| Alongside Mad Mel are two more Out Riders and various Psychos that run     |
| around the domed area. These enemies are great for Second Winds in case    |
| your Runner explodes and you go with it.                                   |
|                                                                            |
| Mad Mel drives a suped-up Runner complete with a spiked plow attachment in |
| the front and a huge cannon turret on the top. The vehicle seems to be a   |
| Rocket Launcher Runner since he has the ability to use both machine guns   |
| and rockets. These rockets are incredibly powerful and can take down your  |
| own ride in about three direct hits. Always stay moving and try to follow  |
| Mad Mel as he does donuts around the ring.                                 |
|                                                                            |
| If your car is about to tank (flaming heavily, under 100 health), then get |
| out of the Runner and sprint away from it before it explodes and takes you |
| down with it. This isn't the kiss of death, since you can still use your   |
| most powerful weapons (which tend to deal more damage per hit than both    |
| Runner types).                                                             |
|                                                                            |
| If you do die, you'll respawn at the New-U Pole at the entrance to the     |
| dome. You can fight a noble fight and return with a Runner, or you can     |
| walk up to the ramp and shoot at Mad Mel without ever entering the dome.   |
| I don't think I have ever beaten Mad Mel with my first Runner still in     |
| tact.                                                                      |

| BOSS: Krom |_______________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 26              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Krom is both a pain in the ass and unlike any other boss you have faced    |
| before. Krom resides at the top of his cliffside village and hides out in  |
| his house. He sits in a gatling turret on his balcony and fires down at    |
| you. This fight is similar to your face-offs against the Mulciber Mk2      |
| turrets - one of them should be fresh in your memory.                      |
|                                                                            |
| You are not targeting the bandit Krom himself, but rather Krom's Turret.   |
| Unfortunately, it has the ability to regenerate its health and a patient   |
| sniper's tactic is completely useless in this case. The turret can shoot   |
| machine gun rounds and rockets, so staying behind cover for too long won't |
| protect you from splash damage. You must frequently move.                  |
|                                                                            |
| Unlike the fights with the Mulciber Mk2s, it is not recommended that you   |
| sit back and try to snipe Krom. Krom is a boss, and he isn't susceptible   |
| to one-hit KOs like a bandit simpleton. Your best plan of attack is to     |
| make your way up to the balcony so you are close enough for a clean shot.  |
|                                                                            |
| The layout of the village is a bit annoying, so you will have to zig and   |
| zag your way across the bridges in order to ultimately reach the boss. Go  |
| at a snail's pace; there is no need to rush, but obviously hurry when      |
| moving from one cover to the next. Aside from Krom himself, you'll find    |
| all kinds of bandits: Thugs, Killers, Raiders, Psychos, and Midget         |
| Shotgunners. Enjoy!                                                        |
|                                                                            |
| From the entrance of the village, you can go right or left. I suggest you  |
| head right to bypass the first two islands. Chuck a grenade before you run |
| to any of the islands here in the village. This does two things: it kills  |
| many of the enemies present, and also helps eliminate elemental barrels    |
| that can easily be set off by Krom's Turret.                               |
|                                                                            |
| At the third island is a few more bandits and a [SILVER CHEST]. You are    |
| getting much closer to Krom, which is a good and bad thing: both your and  |
| his attacks have increased accuracy at a closer range and thus can deal    |
| more damage. Toss one or two grenades over to the fourth island before you |
| sprint across.                                                             |
|                                                                            |
| The fourth island offers a lot of cover, so chill here for a while. If you |
| still have Wee Wee's Super Booster - even if you don't have it equipped -  |
| make sure to use it for this fight to regenerate your health before you    |
| make your next move.                                                       |
|                                                                            |
| Here is where strategies branch off a bit. If you are a close-range,       |
| Shotgun-loving character (Berserker, anyone?), the best plan of action is  |
| to run right up to the turret and go buckwild. Shotguns to the face, and   |
| use your Action Skill. Even though Krom can turn his turret 180-degrees,   |
| it should still be enough (plus, even if you become Crippled you are so    |
| close that you can shoot at him from three feet away).                     |
|                                                                            |
| It is risky, but definitely doable. Even Lilith and Roland can employ this |
| strategy. For Lilith: get up close to Krom, fire away, then use Phasewalk  |
| and run back down to one of the islands and hide. Roland probably has it   |
| best: by using Scorpio Turret, you direct all the unwanted attention away  |
| from you and can either bombard Krom from up close or attack from a        |
| respectable distance. Sorry Mordecai... :(                                 |
|                                                                            |
| Now for more long-range players and someone who isn't a tank like Brick,   |
| it is best to stay on this tier of islands and shoot at Krom with a Combat |
| Rifle, Sniper Rifle, SMG, Repeater Pistol, you name it. Any mid-range or   |
| long-range weapon will do the trick. You can run across the bridge to get  |
| on either side of the balcony and confuse Krom a bit, which allows you to  |
| pull off clean shots easier. You have a multitude of strategies here; find |
| one that you like and get to work!                                         |

| BOSS: Jaynis Kobb |________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 27              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Unlike many bosses, Jaynis Kobb is free roaming and you can trigger this   |
| boss fight as soon as you enter Jaynistown. Doing so is ill-advised and    |
| killing the accompanying bandits first is a much better idea. Make sure to |
| stay on the south side of town so you don't catch his attention and        |
| prematurely begin the duel. He'll threaten you if you get too close and    |
| only opens fire in retaliation, so don't shoot at him until you're ready.  |
|                                                                            |
| Since Jaynis Kobb typically doesn't start the fight, make sure you get a   |
| good, clean first shot. Snipe him in the head or blast him with a grenade  |
| or Rocket Launcher. A critical hit with a strong enough weapon may fully   |
| drain his shield in one shot, so the first shot is worth it.               |
|                                                                            |
| There is a lot of running room in Jaynistown and plenty of areas to hide   |
| and protect yourself. While you probably cannot see him from the roof of   |
| the southwest house, there are a couple other buildings at the north end   |
| that have roof access. Jaynis probably won't run up the stairs and         |
| confront you, but if he does you can drop down to the ground and flee.     |
|                                                                            |
| A few more bandits may enter the fray after Jaynis opens fire, so try and  |
| deal with them first. As for the boss himself, treat him like any other    |
| bandit. He may have more HP and a tough shield, but you have the entirety  |
| of Jaynistown to yourself. Run around, hide on the opposite side of the    |
| town, heck, even take a breather and check out the Weapon Vendor if you    |
| want to buy a weapon. It's pretty easy to shake Jaynis Kobb.               |

| BOSS: Taylor Kobb |________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 29              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| You will want to run away immediately. Taylor does not step into the town  |
| alone: he is joined by two Level 28 Bruisers and a pair of Level 24 Rocket |
| Turrets. Get back behind the gate and find a house or something to hide    |
| behind. You will want to prioritize and pick off each group individually.  |
|                                                                            |
| Unfortunately, Taylor has installed a gate that cuts off the west side     |
| from the rest of the town, so you cannot flank him by going around. The    |
| only way is through the gate that you entered, and that's right in the     |
| line of fire. Taylor and the Bruisers are smart enough not to leave their  |
| post, so you won't be able to coerce them past the gate.                   |
|                                                                            |
| Your best bet is to back up and eliminate the two Rocket Turrets from a    |
| respectable distance. You can shoot the one on the right from the roof of  |
| the southwest house. As for the one on the left, you can probably stay on  |
| the ground, but pretty far away. Once the two Rocket Launcher Turrets are  |
| out of the picture, you can pick off the two Bruisers through the gate.    |
|                                                                            |
| Once it's just you and Taylor, pass through the gate and attack. Taylor    |
| Kobb can be one tough customer. He has a big ol' shield and a destructive  |
| Rocket Launcher; like the Reaver fight, you will want to keep moving as to |
| prevent the boss from landing an accurate hit. Taylor usually has to plant |
| his feet before firing a rocket, so he is slow to attack (but the hits are |
| devastating!). Strafe side to side and use the crates and rocks to confuse |
| Taylor. He shouldn't be able to land any clean shots if you keep moving.   |

| BOSS: Rakk Hive |__________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 28              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Yep. Do you remember seeing those strange orange mounds that release Rakks |
| into the air during your journey? Well one of those climbs out of the      |
| earth to reveal much more than an orange mound. This is a Rakk Hive.       |
|                                                                            |
| The Rakk Hive is a gargantuan four-legged creature that shoots Rakks out   |
| of its back. In addition to fighting the lumbering beast, you will have to |
| fend off groups of Rakk dive bombers. You can fight the boss either on the |
| ground or from the cliffside, but the choice depends on your character     |
| class and preferred weapons.                                               |
|                                                                            |
| First off, the attacks: the Rakk Hive himself does not do much other than  |
| walk around the clearing. The boss occasionally raises up onto its hind    |
| legs and stamps down onto the ground, creating a miniature earthquake that |
| you must jump over (obviously this attack is useless if you are standing   |
| high up on the cliff). The Rakk Hive can also shoot Corrosive blobs out of |
| its mouth, so you'll probably see this one a lot if you're on the cliff.   |
| These gas bombs create a lingering poison stench that can damage you.      |
|                                                                            |
| Lastly, and most importantly, the Rakk Hive can release Rakks into the     |
| skies. These Rakks - either Experienced Defender Rakks or Experienced      |
| Kamikaze Rakks - attack in groups. The Defender Rakks are regular Rakks,   |
| but the Kamikaze Rakks explode on contact and can deal a lot of damage.    |
| Look for them (they are shades of yellow and orange) and shoot them down   |
| before they blow up in your face.                                          |
|                                                                            |
| This boss fight can be tough (well, more annoying than tough) for Brick    |
| players; assuming that you are fond of Shotguns and Rocket Launchers. You  |
| will be fighting against Rakks more than the boss itself, and automatic    |
| weapons with preferably large magazines and/or reload speed are key for    |
| taking down hordes of Rakks. The good thing about Kamikaze Rakks is that   |
| blowing one up usually sets off a chain reaction and kills the rest.       |
|                                                                            |
| In addition, the Rakk Hive's weak point are its four fluorescent eyes,     |
| which are pretty high up and likely out of the range of most Shotguns. If  |
| you are a close-range fighter, you may want to jump off the cliff and      |
| fight the boss on the ground. Even if you can't hit the eyes, shooting at  |
| the boss's legs and side will get the job done.                            |
|                                                                            |
| For virtually any other character, I suggest staying on the cliff. It is   |
| high enough so you are at the same level as the Rakk Hive and have a great |
| view of the sky and the surrounding areas, so no Rakks should surprise you |
| from above. You are also out of range of the boss's shockwave stomp and    |
| only have to worry about the Corrosive projectiles. On top of all that,    |
| you can run back to the intersection and hide from the boss if need be.    |
|                                                                            |
| Precision players such as Mordecai should have an easy time sniping out    |
| the Rakk Hive's four eyes. After taking enough damage, they pop and force  |
| you to target somewhere else, but once the fourth eye is removed the boss  |
| is likely on its last legs (shooting at its eye sockets still counts as a  |
| critical hit). Any fully automatic weapon with a good Weapon Zoom or a     |
| Sniper Rifle work wonders against the Rakk Hive.                           |

| BOSS: Hanz & Franz |_______________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Hanz  - Level: 30              Resist: None                                |
| Franz - Level: 30              Resist: None                                |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| These two goons resemble Badass Bruisers - Franz especially. Both are big  |
| meatheads with a mean streak. Hanz is the bald guy with the huge cleaver   |
| and Franz uses a Combat Rifle and wears a thick helmet. Therefore Hanz is  |
| more inclined to chase after you and use melee attacks while Franz sits    |
| back and guns you down.                                                    |
|                                                                            |
| The top floor of Thor is a large rectangle with two walls on the left and  |
| right side. You can run around the entire rig and have Hanz follow suit,   |
| so try to run behind one of the walls to separate Hanz and Franz. Sprint   |
| from north to south, then turn around and wait for Hanz to round the       |
| corner before you unload a clip. Run around the other side of the wall in  |
| a circle and repeat the process. As for Franz, treat him like the Badass   |
| Bruiser that he is.                                                        |

| BOSS: Baron Flynt |________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 30              Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| The second Hanz and Franz hit the ground, Baron Flynt is all over you like |
| white on rice. A few bandits and a Bruiser join in on the fun, but you     |
| might want to keep one or two around in case of needing a Second Wind.     |
| The enemies appear at the north end of the platform, underneath Baron's    |
| throne. The boss himself starts off at his throne and begins running amok. |
|                                                                            |
| Baron Flynt has a unique Shotgun that actually fires rockets, and also is  |
| able to unload a full clip with one pull of the trigger. Even though the   |
| top of Thor is mammoth in size, the rockets can travel pretty far and can  |
| strike you from a surprising amount of places since they kinda wiggle in   |
| the air and rarely travel in a straight line.                              |
|                                                                            |
| The boss's gun has its pros and cons. For one, it's powerful and getting   |
| hit by six or so rockets simultaneously really hurts. If you manage to     |
| dodge all of them, however, Baron is left defenseless while he has to      |
| slowly reload.                                                             |
|                                                                            |
| The only reason why this boss battle isn't particularly difficult is due   |
| to the size of the arena. Thor's platform is gigantic and you have so much |
| running room and so many tiny buildings to hide in. You even have access   |
| to the upper levels and Baron's throne, so you can effectively run away    |
| from Baron Flynt and then snipe him from a corner while he's out looking   |
| for you. Stand on his throne and shoot down at him from above, then when   |
| he climbs up to the throne jump to the bottom level and go hide.           |
|                                                                            |
| You can play a silly game of cat and mouse with Baron Flynt, but you need  |
| to make sure never to get close to him. Otherwise, Baron's Shotgun attack  |
| will unload its rockets directly in your face and you'll probably die in   |
| one hit. He can be hard to see since for whatever reason he kinda blends   |
| in the background, so you're better off looking for the trail of rockets.  |
|                                                                            |
| Be patient, but don't take too long of a break in between hiding and       |
| attacking: Baron Flynt's shield has a very high recharge rate and can      |
| fully refill in no time. It's a tedious fight, but if you keep your        |
| distance and land critical hits, you will win.                             |

| BOSS: Master McCloud, Lance Royal Guard x2 |_______________________________
|                                                                            |

| Lance Royal Guard - Level: 31              Resist: None                    |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Well, Commandant Steele obviously saw us coming. So much for being sneaky. |
| Master McCloud is a high-ranking officer of the Crimson Lance and is a     |
| force to be reckoned with. He also brings along two Lance Royal Guards,    |
| who are very tough in their own right.                                     |
|                                                                            |
| The two Lance Royal Guards should be your first priority. They are the     |
| weaker guys compared to the real boss, and can be taken down easier since  |
| they do not have shields. Even though they are bigger than your average    |
| soldier and wear purple armor, they share the same mannerisms with Lance   |
| Infantry (Badass Infantry, to be specific). They have thick armor on their |
| legs and shoulders that absorb all damage, so you must aim for the head at |
| all times. Also watch out for grenades - they are grenade fiends.          |
|                                                                            |
| The arena is strangely reminiscent of the room where you fought the Roid   |
| Rage Psycho in Sledge's Safe House. It is one huge circle with stacks of   |
| boxes littering the area, providing you with plenty of hiding spots. You   |
| cannot run far from three Crimson Lance, which is why whittling this fight |
| to a standard 1-on-1 affair is key.                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Things become much more manageable when it's just you and Master McCloud.  |
| He is essentially a suped-up Lance Engineer who can summon a Scorpio       |
| Turret on command. You should not bother wasting your ammo on destroying   |
| the turret. The room is big and wide enough for you to simply run around   |
| and/or behind it to render is completely useless. Plus, it disappears      |
| around 30 seconds after it is deployed.                                    |
|                                                                            |
| The boss also uses a lot of grenades and usually tosses them at you from   |
| behind a crate or his Scorpio Turret. Thankfully, he only uses standard    |
| grenades rather than the Transfusions that most Lance Engineers prefer. He |
| also uses an Eridian weapon which may be new to you; these weapons are     |
| very rate and usually fire plasma rounds. In this case, the gun shoots out |
| huge Shock balls that travel slowly through the air. Easy to dodge, but    |
| boy do they hurt if you aren't paying attention.                           |
|                                                                            |
| The fight is pretty easy when the two Lance Royal Guards are out of the    |
| picture. Master McCloud has a shield but it can be drained in one shot     |
| with a Shock weapon or if you score a critical hit. Like all Crimson Lance |
| enemies, Corrosive weapons help on an armored foe like Master McCloud.     |

| BOSS: The Destroyer |______________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 33              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| So this is why the Guardians were protecting the Vault... to prevent this  |
| monstrosity from escaping! The Destroyer is a huge octopus monster with a  |
| huge fanged mouth and four long tentacles. It can be a little daunting,    |
| but trust me when I say that this final boss is a disappointment. The fact |
| that you can Fast Travel out of the area during the fight is one reason    |
| why. So if you're pooped from the trek here, just warp somewhere and come  |
| back when you have a restocked inventory.                                  |
|                                                                            |
| The Destroyer does not move and is stuck hanging out of the mountain. Its  |
| tentacles on the ground can reach out and smack you, and the boss also has |
| a long tongue that it can use as a whip. The two black tentacles on the    |
| top of the boss can hurl spikes at you. The Destroyer also has a shockwave |
| attack that can send you across the map.                                   |
|                                                                            |
| The boss's final attack that it mainly uses when the fight is halfway      |
| over. You'll hear a weird charging noise as The Destroyer lets a pink      |
| laser beam shoot out of its eyeball. This attack is devastating, and the   |
| boss is nice enough to tell you when it's coming. Use the two pillars on   |
| the far end for cover when you hear the laser charging.                    |
|                                                                            |
| This thing is one huge target, but there are some regions that you should  |
| shoot over others. The Destroyer's weak points are its mouth and the pink  |
| bulbs on the black tentacles. When the boss uses its tongue lash attack,   |
| shoot into its mouth for critical hits. Also blasting the bulbs will do    |
| the trick. The black tentacles can be destroyed as another respawns, so    |
| sever one when crippled to get a Second Wind.                              |
|                                                                            |
| Continue attacking the black tentacles to drain the boss's HP the fastest. |
| The Destroyer doesn't have a shield but has a metric-ton of health, so the |
| battle may drag on a bit (but like all unshielded enemies, The Destroyer   |
| is weak against Fire). Larger, thicker tentacles sprout from the boss and  |
| grab onto the environment, but ignore them and continue shooting the black |
| ones with the pink spots.                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| After cutting off all four tentacles, it usually takes a while for them to |
| grow back at once. Resort to aiming at The Destroyer's eye, which is also  |
| a weak point. Stay behind one of the two main columns to keep yourself     |
| protected from the eye beam. Continue shooting the eye until you win. Or,  |
| if the black tentacles grow back, then switch back to them.                |

| BOSS: Scar |_______________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 8               Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Scar roams around the center of the campsite and waits for his prey to     |
| come to him. Slay all of the Skags in the vicinity without getting too     |
| close to Scar (he walks around in laps, so you can figure out his boundary |
| lines and determine how close you can get without provoking him).          |
|                                                                            |
| Once all the lesser Skags are killed, open your map and look for the small |
| path that comes to a point at the northeast corner of the camp. Climb up   |
| to the top and take out any long-range weapon. Here you have a good        |
| vantage point where you can snipe the boss (he's hard to miss - Scar is    |
| much bigger than any other Skag you've faced).                             |
|                                                                            |
| Scar will likely notice you immediately and sprint towards your location.  |
| He is very fast and can jump super high (he can reach the ledge from the   |
| ground in one leap), so you'll want to drop down and enter the main camp   |
| site so you have more room to maneuver around Scar.                        |
|                                                                            |
| Scar uses the same attacks and has the same mannerisms as any other Skag,  |
| but he also uses a vicious projectile beam that can cause elemental        |
| damage. Try to avoid facing him head-on so you can avoid this attack and   |
| aim for Scar's head; if he opens his mouth to roar at you, shoot nonstop   |
| into his gaping maw for critical damage. The Clipper is a nice weapon      |
| choice if you are having trouble finding a good gun to use.                |

| BOSS: Moe & Marley |_______________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Moe    - Level: 15              Resist: Fire                               |
| Marley - Level: 15              Resist: Shock                              |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Moe and Marley are intimidating Alpha Skags that each possess special      |
| elemental properties. Moe is a Fire-based Skag that has a fast, flaming    |
| charge attack and Marley is a Shock-based Skag that spits electrical balls |
| of goo out of his mouth; they also both have elemental shockwave attacks.  |
|                                                                            |
| The tandem duo are almost always together, so you will have to face them   |
| together, plus any other Skag who wants to join in on the fun (it's always |
| a lot): a 2-on-1 handicap match just got a lot harder. The lesser Skags    |
| are good to keep around in case you are crippled and need an easy kill to  |
| initiate Second Wind.                                                      |
|                                                                            |
| If you are unlucky enough to get both Moe and Marley's attention, it does  |
| not matter which one you target first. Moe is the larger of the two and    |
| resistant to Fire-based attacks, so make sure to use any other weapon      |
| type. Marley, of course, is resistant to Shock.                            |
|                                                                            |
| Even though Marley has more health, I find him easier to take down because |
| he is forced to open his mouth for his his electric spit attack. Plus,     |
| killing Marley first makes the fight against Moe easier since your shields |
| won't get depleted as fast.                                                |
|                                                                            |
| This portion of the Arid Hills is filled with tons of boulders and         |
| crevices; if you can find a high enough rock to position yourself onto,    |
| Moe (who only has melee attacks) won't be able to do jack squat and Marley |
| might have a tougher time reaching you with his projectiles. You can have  |
| it real easy if perched way out of reach of the Skag bosses.               |

| BOSS: Skagzilla |__________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 21              Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Skagzilla is without a doubt the king of all Skags, based on size alone.   |
| He towers over you and can strike fear into the hearts of many, but        |
| Skagzilla is manageable despite all his scare tactics. The first thing you |
| should know is that while Fire weapons work best on flesh like regular ol' |
| Skags, Skagzilla is resistant to all elements.                             |
|                                                                            |
| The boss has five main attacks. First is his melee attack, which is only   |
| used if you are directly next to him. Second, he has a jumping attack that |
| is mainly used to catch up with you if you are far away, but Skagzilla     |
| creates an earthquake when he lands; jump in the air when he lands to      |
| avoid it. Skagzilla can also charge at you, which is preceded by the boss  |
| standing still and stamping his foot like he's building momentum.          |
|                                                                            |
| Skagzilla also uses two projectile attacks. The first is a rapid Shock     |
| spit attack that can be hard to dodge due to how fast he spits at you. It  |
| can deplete your shields quickly like any Shock-based attack, so keep your |
| guard up and run away if your shield gets too low. Finally, Skagzilla also |
| uses a long-range laser beam attack. He sweeps from side to side to cover  |
| a lot of ground, but it's actually easiest to avoid by standing next to    |
| either side of his face.                                                   |
|                                                                            |
| Unlike normal Skags, Skagzilla isn't one to show off and won't stand back  |
| and roar at you for show. That means the best (and really only) time to    |
| score critical hits is when he is using his laser beam attack. Like I said |
| before, you can avoid the beam if you approach Skagzilla's head and stand  |
| directly on either side of it - he doesn't move until the attack ends so   |
| you'll be completely safe while the attack is going on. Being so close is  |
| also a great chance to score critical hits with a powerful Shotgun.        |
|                                                                            |
| All in all, Skagzilla is pretty easy despite his appearance. Even though   |
| he is Level 21, you can easily slay the beast at the same level. The arena |
| may not offer any cover, but it's huge and the numerous Skag piles may     |
| come in handy if you're looking for ammo or Instant Health Vials.          |

| BOSS: Mothrakk |___________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 25              Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Even though you have your Runner, it won't be of much use since Mothrakk   |
| stays way up in the sky and is out of reach of your turret. You must fight |
| this beast on foot with traditional weaponry, so I hope you brought a      |
| Sniper Rifle or at least a gun with a weapon zoom. An automatic weapon     |
| such as an SMG or Combat Rifle is probably better than a Sniper Rifle, and |
| an added Weapon Zoom perk is just the cherry on top. Heck, I managed to    |
| slay her once by jumping in the air and shooting with a powerful Shotgun.  |
|                                                                            |
| As soon as you see the boss float over the mountainside, immediately dash  |
| down the hill towards the Catch-A-Ride Station. This garage provides great |
| cover from Mothrakk's meteor attack. Mothrakk only has one attack, but it  |
| is a doozy: all the boss does is circle overhead while raining fireballs   |
| down on you. Which is why some sort of shelter is key here.                |
|                                                                            |
| Mothrakk has a pretty short attention span, so after several seconds of    |
| inactivity she will increase her flight path and begin flying in much      |
| larger circles. When you cannot see or hear any more fireballs, peek out   |
| from the garage and scan the skies for Mothrakk. When she is far away and  |
| uninterested, use a few Sniper Rifle rounds to get her attention again.    |
|                                                                            |
| The boss is a surprisingly high level (compared to the mission's level)    |
| and is also resistant to the three main elements, so you have no advantage |
| over Mothrakk and this fight will likely consume a lot of time, ammo, and  |
| energy. Shoot and hide. That's the name of the game here.                  |

| BOSS: King Wee Wee |_______________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 22              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| King Wee Wee is one of the game's easier bosses because as a human boss,   |
| he does not have a shield. Well, actually he does. Kinda. King Wee Wee     |
| does not use his shield for defensive purposes, so you never have to worry |
| about lowering it. In fact, the boss uses the shield to attack!            |
|                                                                            |
| The boss mainly runs around and tries to hack away with his buzz saw, or   |
| throw it at you if you are too far away. But if you see King Wee Wee raise |
| his purple shield in the air, then get the hell away. Strange energy balls |
| shoot out of the shield and create ginormous shockwaves on the ground. It  |
| can damage you repeatedly if you are in the epicenter, so try and get away |
| from it if you can.                                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Despite his damaging attack, King Wee Wee is really easy. Since he is only |
| Level 22 and does not have a shield, you can drain his health in a snap    |
| with any powerful gun. Just try to stick with a gun with some range,       |
| because you'll want to stay away from the king and his shield attack.      |

| Level: 25              Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Rakkinishu is much more confrontational than Mothrakk and won't sit back   |
| and let you blast him to smithereens. The boss lives at the north end of   |
| the Rust Commons West and will become disturbed if you approach the area   |
| and stay for more than just a few seconds. The boss only has one attack:   |
| he will breathe a stream of fire down on you. Unlike the meteors that      |
| Mothrakk used, Rakkinishu uses a stream of flames that can burn you alive. |
|                                                                            |
| Make sure to stay inside one of the two huts near Rakkinishu. The boss's   |
| flame attack usually cannot penetrate the walls of the huts and you should |
| be fine for the most part. Stay inside, then peek out and take a few shots |
| before stepping back in. It's essentially the same strategy as Mothrakk,   |
| but you are allowed to use mid-range and even close-range weapons in this  |
| fight because Rakkinishu likes to swoop down real low. Even though you can |
| drive a vehicle on the premises, I wouldn't fight the boss with a Runner.  |

| BOSS: One-Eyed Jack |______________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 24              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Like King Wee Wee before, it is hard to consider One-Eyed Jack a true      |
| boss. Yes, he is more powerful than your average numbskull bandit, but he  |
| should not put up much of a fight. If anything, his army of bandit friends |
| are more problematic than the leader himself.                              |
|                                                                            |
| One-Eyed Jack carries a powerful Revolver called the Madjack, which has a  |
| very high Fire Rate and even has bullets that ricochet off of surfaces!    |
| The bullets "slither" through the air like a sidewinder, making them extra |
| hard to dodge. There's plenty of crates to duck behind and the warehouse   |
| is a good place to hide if your shields need recharging.                   |
|                                                                            |
| If you want a fair fight, try to hide in the warehouse and let the bandits |
| funnel inside while you pick them off individually. From here, you can try |
| and loop around to the other exit if One-Eyed Jack makes his way inside.   |
| However, the best (and possibly cheapest) strategy is to run the boss over |
| with your Runner. Your vehicle has access to the warehouse camp, so why    |
| not splatter One-Eyed Jack to add insult to injury?                        |

| BOSS: Reaver |_____________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 27              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Time for some revenge with a capital "R". The story goes like this: Jed    |
| Stokely was a troubled lad who always found himself on the wrong side of   |
| the tracks, and this time crossed the line by killing his adoptive father  |
| and joining Krom's team of bandits. It's time to get some justice by       |
| killing the man now known as Reaver. He only shows his face when you have  |
| defeated the slew of bandits at the end of the camp.                       |
|                                                                            |
| After he crawls out of the hole in the wall, throw a grenade as his feet   |
| and open fire. The boss's weapon of choice is a Sniper Rifle, so it can be |
| very powerful but has a fairly slow firing rate. Reaver only takes shots   |
| if you are standing still, so you can go the entire fight strafing back    |
| and forth and he won't really do anything.                                 |
|                                                                            |
| It's a pretty embarrassing fight. I've had several instances where Reaver  |
| is like a statue and only fires his gun every few seconds. Keep your       |
| distance so he doesn't melee attack you and unload a few clips on him. I   |
| mean, it's a pitiful fight. Don't bring a Sniper Rifle to a gun fight.     |

| BOSS: Slither |____________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |

| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Errr... that's it? Are you kidding me? Slither is a puny and pathetic      |
| Scythid that is no bigger than a Scythid Crawler. Slither will lunge at    |
| you, nibble at your ankles a bit, then back up, turn around, and do the    |
| same thing. The only remotely challenging part of this boss battle is that |
| it can be hard to find and track Slither, despite its vibrant colors.      |
| Use a Shotgun and wait for the boss to jump at you, then sidestep and      |
| blast it. The little bugger is very fast, I'll give it that much.          |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

| BOSS: Widowmaker |_________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 28              Resist: Corrosive, Shock                            |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Widowmaker is a big blue Spiderant covered in green blotches; about the    |
| size of a Spiderant King or Queen. The Widowmaker is much faster than any  |
| common Spiderant, which makes its shockwave attack hard to dodge. It can   |
| also shoot web balls at you like a Spiderant Soldier and can fire a green  |
| sonic boom as well. Just like any Spiderant, firing at the front doesn't   |
| do you any good, so try and flank the boss to target the abdomen (it helps |
| if your attacks can Daze enemies).                                         |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

| BOSS: Helob |______________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 28              Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Helob is bigger and stronger than Widowmaker, but slower (and resistant    |
| to Fire) than his cousin. Helob has an annoying jumping slam attack that   |
| makes it hard for you to adequately target the boss's abdomen. Helob does  |
| not do much other than leap in the air like a jumping bean. If you Daze    |
| it, then you have a better chance of scoring critical hits. Of course,     |
| like Widowmaker and any other Spiderant, simply running Helob over gets    |
| the job done.                                                              |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

| BOSS: Bleeder |____________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 28              Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Well if the shoe fits... Bleeder is a small red Scythid that looks just    |
| like a Desert Scythid, but bleeds incessantly for some unknown reason. The |
| Scythid boss also permanently flies in the air unlike most Scythids that   |
| can only stay airborne temporarily. Bleeder is very fast and can be hard   |
| to keep track of; just look for the streams of blood in the air.           |
|                                                                            |
| Try to execute the remaining Scythids before focusing on the boss. They    |
| usually just get in your way, and the Bursting Scythids are especially     |
| annoying, what with their tendency to explode in your face. Bleeder only   |
| attacks by flinging globs of blood at you, which both damages you and can  |
| temporarily mess up your vision. Just like Slither before, Bleeder is more |
| of a nuisance than a real challenge and can be destroyed rather hastily.   |

| BOSS: Queen Tarantella |___________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 28              Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Without a doubt, Queen Tarantella is the biggest and meanest Spiderant out |
| on the market. She is at least twice the size of Widowmaker and Helob and  |
| twice as strong. Make sure the basin is devoid of all life other than you  |
| and the boss, otherwise things will get unnecessarily complicated.         |
|                                                                            |
| Queen Tarantella doesn't do much other than shoot webbing at you or whack  |
| you with her giant front limbs, so she's just like fighting a Spiderant    |
| King or Queen. Despite her intimidating stature, this boss can be          |
| considered easier to take down than normal Spiderants. Why? Because her    |
| abdomen is about three times the size of her armored face.                 |
|                                                                            |
| Unlike many Spiderants, who have huge plating to protect their front,      |
| Queen Tarantella deviates from the norm. Due to this butt-to-head ratio,   |
| you can target the boss's abdomen from the front without having to try to  |
| flank her or wait for her to stick her abdomen in the air during the web   |
| shot attack.                                                               |

| BOSS: King Aracobb |_______________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: 28              Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| In the case of Spiderants, the females seem to be the dominant gender.     |
| King Aracobb is much smaller than his partner and honestly looks just like |
| a regular Spiderant King. A bit stronger, but other than that the two are  |
| spitting images of each other.                                             |
|                                                                            |
| You should be able to handle King Aracobb with ease. He only uses melee    |
| attacks and other close-range moves. Unlike Queen Tarantella, the butt-to- |
| head ratio of the king is the opposite of the queen's: his armored head is |
| much larger than his (abnormally) small abdomen. This makes targeting his  |
| weak point iffy at times.                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| The mission hints at the fact that you can let the Spiderant/bandit        |
| problem handle itself out. After King Aracobb has been awakened, run up    |
| the incline and enter the bandit camp. The boss will follow and turn his   |
| attention to the bandits. Now the king won't be able to wipe out the whole |
| camp on his own (especially since there are a lot a Bruisers and Badass    |
| Psychos), but the distraction is enough for you to easily target his       |
| abdomen. Or sit back, let the two parties duke it out, and see who wins.   |

==============================================================================
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
==============================================================================

You will have access to DLC once you have purchased it as a standalone or if
you own the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition. The regions in the three
main DLC packs are completely separated from the main world (for the most
part) and the only way to reach a DLC region is by Fast Travel (you can still
use Fast Travel to get to these areas prior to completing the story mission
"Powering the Fast Travel Network".

The DLC packs accomodate your character's current level by properly adjusting
enemy and equipment levels, so feel free to pick up and play at any point
during the main quest (you must be at a minimum of Level 10). As a result,
mission levels and rewards fluctuate completely based on your current level
and there is no way to accurately gauge the amounts (although I believe the
mission levels are in increments of five and the number closest to your
current level is chosen).

| Claptrap has informed you of the nearby zombie infestation. The town is    |
| normally kept safe by three defensive turrets, but they don't yet          |
| recognize zombies as a threat. Your only hope to restore any semblance of  |
| security to the area is to recalibrate the town's defensive batteries.     |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Upon warping to Jakobs Cove, you'll view the DLC's introductory cutscene. Talk
to the white Claptrap at the end of the dock to receive this mission and gain
access into the area. To go along with the horror theme of the DLC, Jakobs
Cove is a spooky area filled with withered trees, dilapidated buildings, and
dead bodies; it is always night time during your stay. It's like Halloween
every day of the year here (except the dead bodies are real)!

The best way to reach the town is by passing through the windmill, but it is
locked at the moment. Follow the trail into a cave. Oh no, Zombies!

All Zombie enemies are resistant to Shock and Corrosive, but super weak
against Fire. Regular Zombies are slow plodders and will either puke on you or
use melee attacks. There are also a few variants. Defilers are skinny blokes 
that spew a large stream of vomit, which hinders your movement and also
clutters your HUD. Torsos are merely the upper half of a Zombie and awkwardly
crawl after you.

Anytime you kill a Zombie enemy with a headshot (their weak point), they drop 
a [ZOMBIE BRAIN]. These come in handy later.

Wade through the water and let the Zombies come to you. Remember, these are
your standard, George Romero zombies. No 28 Days Later freaks here, so you can
snipe most of them from a safe distance; Defilers are the only ones with a
motor.

When you come to the intersection, proceed down the only path not boarded up
to reach Jakobs Cove. You arrive at the north end of the village, with the
entire place in disarray (although there are no humans around). First, leap
onto the balcony to your left and press X next to the Gatling Turret to turn
it on.

 - Turret 3 calibrated: Objective Complete

Hooray for going out of order! The turret will help you shoot down any Zombies
or Defilers that crawl out of the fresh graves. Fall down to the ground and
activate the turret near the south gate.

 - Turret 1 calibrated: Objective Complete

The final turret is on the west end of the town. Walk past the defunct bounty
board and up the ramp to reach it.

 - Turret 2 calibrated: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

With that, the town will be protected from all undead intruders. You won't be
seeing any human allies in Jakobs Cove - the only sense of human companionship
you may find in the village is the automated messages that blare over the
loudspeakers; usually something like crucifying anyone who doesn't use Jakobs
products.

But there is a Claptrap and a bounty board that you can visit, as well as an
Ammo and Weapon Vendor in the middle of the town. But first, scale the roof of
the building west of Lucky's to find a [RED CHEST] on the tippity top. Now
turn in the mission at the Claptrap at the bounty board.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Follow the Claptrap to the south gate and he will open it for you. You may
want to stop at the Ammo and Weapon Vendors before you go through; the Ammo
Vendor has new, orange Ammo SDUs that might interest you.

 - Gate opened: Objective Complete

Walk towards the Dropship New-U Station. Dr. Ned resides on the coast inside
Ned's Bleeding Heart Infirmary, but something tells me business isn't exactly
booming. There is a Med Vendor out front, for future reference. A group of
Corpse Eaters always resides around the infirmary. These creepy crows are
sometimes hostile, especially if you pick a fight with one. They are more of a
nuisance than anything, but they are worth a mention.

 - Office found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Read the note stuck to his door and hand in the mission. As a result, new side
missions become available at the Jakobs Cove bounty board.

| There is a note on the door to Dr. Ned's office. The fine print reads:     |
| "Screw this, I'm not hanging around here to get killed. I can protect      |
| myself better at home. If any fool finds this, I'm at my place in the      |
| bayou. Good luck reaching me, though. Just stay away. It's safer if you    |
| don't try to get to me."                                                   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

So it seems like Dr. Ned has left town after the Zombie breakout. Can't say I
blame the guy. Continue along the coast and follow the trail to a large swamp.
Dr. Ned is residing in Hallow's End, and the transition gate is at the
northeast side of the swamp. It doesn't hurt to explore a little bit, though,
right?

If you continue east through another cave, you end up at the Coastline. Next
to the New-U Station is a gate taking you to Dead Haven, and further down the
coast is another New-U Station called the Secret Entrance. Ooooh...

The swamp doesn't have any important structures or locations, so walk around
and eradicate the Zombies. You will encounter some new Zombie types: Psycho
Zombies, Midget Zombies, and Suicide Zombies.

Psycho Zombies are just like regular Psychos but without their axes and
signature banter. Midget Zombies are like Mutant Midget Psychos, but are also
missing their weapon and have a long jump attack. Suicide Zombies carry large
explosive barrels on their backs and will chuck it at you; you can shoot the
barrel while it's on their back or arms to instantly kill them. Otherwise they
will sprint towards you and try an alternate kamikaze tactic.

When you are ready, continue to Hallow's End. The waypoint doesn't make it
seem like you'll have to travel far, but the landscape forces you to go south
and loop all the way around in order to reach Dr. Ned's house. You will have
to take a tour of the entire map before you can find the doctor.

Once down in the bayou, you'll want to stick to the west end and follow signs
for the town of Hallow's End. There are a LOT of Zombies in this map, so you
will be knee deep in water and enemies as you try and make it to the town.
Follow the western boundaries and enter the cave which takes you to Hallow's
End. You should be able to see Dr. Ned's giant house from the other side.

Inside Hallow's End, you can find all three vendor types and a nice amount of
lootable objects. You may be running low on ammo after blazing through all
the enemies, so hunt down the vendors. You can find a [SILVER CHEST] in the
pumpkin patch immediately to the left of the main gate. There is also a [RED
CHEST] in the northern graveyard behind the church.

Your main goal here is to pick up the side mission "TK Lives!", starting in
the southwest corner of town. This one isn't important, but talking to a
zombified T.K. Baha starts a mission chain that involves collecting an obscene
amount of Zombie Brains. The earlier you start these missions, the better,
because Zombie Brains you have collected prior to the sidequest do not count
towards the total brain count.

You will definitely want to complete the first two ("Brains" and "Braaains")
before you actually go out and begin other missions. By the end of the mission
chain you will need to obtain 435 Zombie Brains, so for the later ones you'll
want to collect the brains as you progress through the story. However, do not
let these missions to linger in your inventory after you have completed them,
so as soon as you get the desired amount of brains immediately return to T.K.

The southern part of the bayou is more spread out and contains a lot of bad
guys. There is a [SILVER CHEST] on the south end on top of a mine cart track.
You can find another [SILVER CHEST] underneath the bridge leading up to Dr.
Ned's house.

Move counter-clockwise around the bayou to reach a hill, and proceed up the
hill and across the bridge. Take out the Zombies that stumble out of the mine
shafts and enter the front yard of Ned's fortified treehouse. Wipe out the
Zombies wandering around before paging Dr. Ned at the elevator.

 - Dr. Ned contacted: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

You must stand your ground and fight waves of mindless Zombies while Dr. Ned
manually activates the elevator. He's incredibly slow (it's almost as if he is
intentionally going slow...) and the entire process will take several minutes,
so get comfortable. You'll fight every type of Zombie so far; Midget Zombies
are probably the worst along with Defilers, so kill them first. Restock ammo
using the Skag piles and ammo crates.

The horde of Zombies ends when the lift is at the ground, so take your time
and collect your heaping helping of loot before getting on. Go inside the
treehouse, where you will be introduced to Dr. Ned. Turn in the mission.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

After receiving the word, exit Ned's treehouse. Make sure to leave via the
lift; I know you can skydive off of the balcony but that has been known to
cause some minor glitches involving invisible walls. Return to Jakobs Cove.

The main entrance to Generally Hospital is shut down, so you will have to
follow Ned's instructions and go through the secret entrance. Head over to the
Coastline New-U Station and follow the beach. You will end up in a small cove
with a strange tombstone all by itself. Inspect it to reveal a secret entrance
leading into Generally Hospital.

 - Spooky entrance found: Objective Complete

Generally Hospital's main attraction is, of course, its hospital that rests at
the top of a cemetery hill. You start off in a tunnel at the base of the hill.
Since you are strolling around in a graveyard, you can expect a lot of Zombies
in this area. The fight to the top of the hill will be tedious, but it should
offer a whole lot of XP and Zombie Brains. 

At the top of the hill, climb the stone staircase. Defeat one final wave of
Zombies before going through the hospital's main gate.

| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| If you completed the side mission "Missing: Hank Reiss", then you should   |
| know a little bit of this guy's backstory. He was a test subject for Dr.   |
| Ned's antidote, and apparently it hasn't gone all that well. Or maybe it   |
| has. I mean, he ain't zombified. The antidote has turned Hank Reiss into a |
| mindless Wereskag                                                          |
|                                                                            |
| The boss looks just like how a hypothetical cross between a man and a Skag |
| would look: he walks on two legs but can run on all fours, his head and    |
| shoulder regions are covered in armor plating, and he has sharp teeth.     |
|                                                                            |
| As your first Wereskag enemy, Hank Reiss can be a tough boss. He has       |
| insane speed and therefore only uses melee attacks. It can be very hard to |
| separate the two of you, so close-range weapons may work best. Like all    |
| Skags, you can get a critical hit by shooting Hank's open mouth. He is     |
| also very weak against Incendiary attacks, so any Fire-based equipment you |
| may have is definitely a good choice.                                      |
|                                                                            |
| Hank can make things very problematic when he uses his berserk attack. If  |
| the boss has low health, he will restore a considerable amount of HP and   |
| also increase his speed and strength; it helps extend the fight and makes  |
| him a much more threatening target. The easiest way to kill Hank Reiss is  |
| to use Fire, but otherwise stick to close-range guns and Action Skill.     |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

After silencing Hank Reiss, open the [RED CHEST] on the front doorstep of the
hospital. Now walk around the side of the building to find a green dumpster
with the [ANTIDOTE] inside.

 - Antidote recovered: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Exit Generally Hospital. You won't have to take the long trip back to the
treehouse in order to turn in the mission. Instead, go to town in Jakobs Cove
and talk to Ned's Claptrap, who has been tied up and apparently possessed
(also take any new missions at the Jakobs Cove bounty board).

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Exit the town and head east to the Coastline, then step on the dock and
activate the gate to enter Dead Haven. Boat found indeed.

 - Boat found: Objective Complete

Climb the stairs to the elevator and take the lift to exit the hangar. In the
corner is a dead Crimson Lance soldier clutching a handful of flowers. Sad
(kinda, those guys were dicks).

As you can see from stepping out into the open, Dead Haven is actually Old
Haven from the main game! The overall layout is exactly the same, but the
place has become overrun by zombies and there are temporary walls put in place
to help with separating them from the locals.

Along with the regular Zombies you have been fighting all along, you are also
introduced to Lance Zombies. They are a bit harder to bring down since they
still retain the Crimson Lance armor, but they still share the same attacks as
normal Zombies. Unfortunately, they all appear to be of Engineer origin and 
retain the ability to deploy Scorpio Turrets.

You start off at the south end in the canal. Climb out from the bottom and
start heading north towards the Apartment District. Along the way, you'll run
into a lot of Zombies and one Badass Tankenstein. This freak of nature looks
just like Frankenstein's monster (on beaver tranquilizer) and carries
explosive barrels on his back like Suicide Zombies. However, he has an 
unlimited amount that he can throw at you. Shoot the tank on his back enough
times to blow it up and stun him, then aim for the head.

Walk forward towards a bunker and look for the glowing green door. Perform the
super secret knock to access Dr. Ned's hidden underground laboratory.

 - Lab opened: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

The lab certainly looks like one belonging to a Zombie-birthing mad scientist.
There's blood and dead bodies all over the place, as well as wacky medical
equipment. Switch on the ECHO Recorder on the metal shelf to listen to Ned's
audio diary and hand in the mission. I love how this DLC's humor and the
satirical references to horror movies. Well now you know what's coming next!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

It is now time to gather together evidence incriminating Dr. Ned of his
supernatural crimes. The first [ECHO RECORDER] is on a table in the northwest
corner of the laboratory, across from the gurney.

 - ECHO 1 taken: Objective Complete

The second [ECHO RECORDER] is on the opposite side of the room, on a high
shelf.

 - ECHO 2 taken: Objective Complete

With that, it is off to the satellite location so you can send the recordings
to the Jakobs Corporation and hopefully get some sort of conviction. Hopefully
it's that easy (it probably won't be).

As you walk out of the secret laboratory, turn to the left to find a hole in
the east side of the barricade. Continue north towards the Apartment District,
where you'll find a lot of Lance Zombies. Make your way to the main street
running down the middle of the city and climb onto the roof of the designated
building. Open the [SILVER CHEST], then step inside the radio station.

 - Comm array located: Objective Complete

Open the latch on the computer panel and place the ECHO Recorder in, then
wait and listen to the AI message. It'll take a minute to deliver the ECHO,
but at least you won't have to hold out like when visiting Dr. Ned.

 - ECHO sent: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Take the ECHO Recorder back and listen to the Jakobs representative, then hand
in the mission.

Since you got here by boat, you will need to send a signal to Jakobs in order
to get another ride back to Jakobs Cove. Make sure to search the west end of
Dead Haven to find some chests and stuff. Anyways, you will have to cut
through the Junkyard District in order to get to the other side of the canal
where you can send your message.

Once you have reached your destination, flip the switch on the other side of
the moat to begin sending the signal.

 - Signal sent: Objective Complete

Sending a signal is one thing, but now you have to actually wait for your
transportation. Just like Dr. Ned, the Jakobs representative is alarmingly (or
maybe not so much) inept at her job and the entire process will take close to
five minutes. Deja vu? You don't have to stay on the south side, so feel free
to utilize all of Dead Haven to help dispatch the horde.

Just stay away from the southwest corner near where you sent the signal,
because that is where the dropship will come crashing down.

 - Survived: Objective Complete

Now step inside the dropship to automatically return to Jakobs Cove.

 - Take a ride: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Back in town, a Jakobs Claptrap has effectively replaced Ned's Claptrap and
gives you a computer terminal that lets you enter the rest of the Lumber Yard.

| Jakobs has hired you to take care of Dr. Ned once and for all. You can     |
| find him hidden deep in the Jakobs lumber mill, but the zombie-impeding    |
| bridge near the mill needs to be lowered first.                            |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

You may want to wrap up all the available side missions (except for "Here We
Go Again") before setting off to murder Dr. Ned. The entrance to the Lumber
Yard is at the far end of the swamp; enter the swamp and proceed north to
eventually reach the Mill Entrance.

The Lumber Yard is essentially one long, straight line from beginning to end.
You start off south and must push north to reach Dr. Ned's whereabouts. Make
sure to gather supplies at the vendors near the crashed bus to fight against
the "multitude of minions" sent your way. Trust him: the Lumber Yard is
absolutely crawling with Zombies.

Walk down the dark and spooky road to find a ton of undead inhabitants. Up
ahead is a Weapon Vendor near the abandoned general store. Take the road less
traveled and head up and then down the hill into the ravine. Head through the
ravine and the oncoming cavern to reach the bridge. Cross the bridge and get
ready to kill a lot more Zombies on the other side (try shooting the elemental
barrels on the other side to help take down a lot).

Follow the side of the rock wall and pass through another cave to reach the
bridge. This is a very wide open area so you can expect to find many enemies
wandering around. Clear them out, then walk over to the bridge and put the
switch on its mount. As the bridge is being lowered, Zombies will appear
behind you. This is another "wait it out" type mission that you have become
so accustomed to; just keep an eye out for Suicide Zombies.

 - Lowered Bridge: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Don't get too distracted by the bridge lowering! The final wave usually
arrives after you are able to turn the mission in, but don't turn you back
just yet: a pair of Badass Tankensteins enter the field. These guys are major
tough guys, so get out an automatic weapon and unload on the barrels strapped
to their back. Once the barrels blow up and daze them, they're sitting ducks.

| Ned is in the mill. There is nothing in your way. Kill him.                |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Well actually there is a lot in your way, but don't let that discourage you.
Sprint across the bridge to a New-U Pole. Up ahead is an excavator identical
to the one in the Salt Flats, but a gate prevents us from getting any closer.
Head down the slope and around the gate. Proceed through the tree graveyard
and watch out for Zombies lurking around the tree stumps.

As you reach a hill, a group of about five Wereskags appears, one at a time.
Assuming you have completed all the available side missions, you should be
used to slaying Wereskags. Regular Wereskags are not as strong as the bosses
you have beaten, but they are still super quick and have the ability to heal
themselves.

The second half of the forest is larger, but there are probably the same
amount of Zombies as before. Dr. Ned gets more nervous the closer you are to
the saw mill, so once you reach the second bridge you'll receive another
radio call from him.

By the time you reach the end of the bridge, you realize that Dr. Ned was
bluffing and he has set up an ambush for you. A Badass Tankenstein steps in
front of the exit and Zombies begin to swarm the bridge from both ends. This
is a great time to use grenades and other explosive weapons (such as Rocket
Launchers or Shotguns) since they have to funnel in to get onto the tight
bridge. The ensuing explosions will help damage the Badass Tankenstein.

Your best bet for survival is to fight your way back to the entrance of the
bridge and let the Zombies come to you. Lob grenades down the bridge and try
to keep them from far away as possible. Suicide Zombies inadvertently aid in
crowd control.

The entrance to the lumber mill is a pretty barren area aside from some stacks
of lumber. There is a lot of running room, and it's also a prime location for
a Loot Goon. Go northeast to find a batch of Wereskags. Go underneath the
overpass, then follow it to the top of the hill. There is a whimpering
Claptrap at the top of the hill near the conveyor belt used for choppin' up
wood.

Follow the path to eventually reach a New-U Pole and an elevator leading up
to the Mill. The Mill isn't a dungeon, so you can enjoy a peaceful walk down
the hallway to Dr. Ned. First, sell all the crap you got in the Lumber Yard
and restock your inventory with Healing Kits and other goodies.

In a slightly unsurprising turn of events, Dr. Ned turns himself into a Zombie
after his demise and beckons you to join him in the Mill basement. First,
loot Dr. Ned's body to receive his ricochet SMG, then fall down the dark hole
to enter the basement. If you're seriously hurting, you can always return to
the Med and Ammo Vendors prior to taking the leap.

Ugh, this place looks like the inside of some monster's belly. Make your way
down the shaft until you drop down into a giant pool of blood.

| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| Undead Ned can be a major pain. He is a lot bigger and more menacing than  |
| his human form, but the only main difference between the two fights is     |
| that Undead Ned does not have a shield (and therefore has a ton more HP).  |
| The boss is a huge Zombie-like creature with an oversized claw for one     |
| hand and a scythe for another. He seems like a capable swimmer and spends  |
| the entire fight wading through the water; Undead Ned is very fast and you |
| will have a hard time staying away from him.                               |
|                                                                            |
| Undead Ned has the ability to summon Zombies to the fight. When you see a  |
| red aura appear from his hand, a Zombie will rise from that position. Most |
| of the time it's a regular Zombie, but Undead Ned can spawn any type of    |
| Zombie except for Lance Zombies. At the end of the battle he begins a      |
| spawn spree, which helps in case of needing a Second Wind.                 |
|                                                                            |
| The boss mainly uses melee attacks which is standard for most bosses, but  |
| he also has a few other tricks up his sleeve. Sometimes Undead Ned uses a  |
| toxic puke attack like all Zombie enemies, but he can fire out a wave of   |
| puke balls that covers an arc in front of him. These projectiles get stuck |
| to your HUD and makes things hard to see, and also considerably slows down |
| your movements.                                                            |
|                                                                            |
| Another dangerous attack is when Undead Ned winds up and then releases,    |
| spinning and bouncing around the room like a pinball. To make matters      |
| worse, the boss extends his scythe hand and can deal major damage any time |
| he runs into you. Lastly, Undead Ned is able to submerge in the blood and  |
| reappear somewhere else (usually right next to you). May attention to your |
| radar or the rippling waves in the liquid to see where he's at.            |
|                                                                            |
| Just aim for the head like most enemies. If things get pretty hairy, try   |
| keeping one of his minions around so long as it's a regular Zombie. Don't  |
| want Suicide Zombies or Midget Zombies lingering around for too long.      |

The mission is automatically turned in, so you are good to go. With that, The
Zombie Island of Dr. Ned DLC is officially complete. You can still complete
any unfinished sidequests or putz around in general, but that's all the DLC
has to offer. Good job!

If you are looking for an escape route, check the map and you should find a
tunnel leading back to the middle of the swamp in Jakobs Cove.

If you have completely most, or any, of the missing persons sidequests in the
main game, you know this attempt won't end well. The first [ECHO RECORDER] is
only a few steps away; inside a mailbox next to the two vendors in town.

 - ECHO #1 found: Objective Complete

For the next one, make your way to the east swamp. Go to the north end of the
bog and you'll find the [ECHO RECORDER] inside a rowboat, near where the
Psycho Zombies and Suicide Zombies spawn.

 - ECHO #2 found: Objective Complete

Now head down to the Coastline. You'll locate the [ECHO RECORDER] near the
beach house, on top of a plastic chair.

 - ECHO #3 found: Objective Complete

Listen to the audio recording as you walk back to the town of Jakobs Cove.
Approach the building with the "Lucky's" sign overhead and climb up to the
front porch. Pick up the [ECHO RECORDER] next to the old Jakobs vendor.

 - ECHO #4 found: Objective Complete

One more to go. The [ECHO RECORDER] is found in front of the gate leading to
Generally Hospital. The transition gate is temporarily out of order, but you
don't need to visit the area to find the recorder. From the swamp, head
northeast and you should reach the large gate before coming to the Hallow's
End entrance.

This one shouldn't take long. The best place to farm Bloodwing Eggs is at the
Coastline, which is the far east end of Jakobs Cove. Near the swamp entrance,
continue east through the cave and you'll spill out onto the beach.

There are several groups of Corpse Eaters (undead Bloodwings) flying in the 
distance, and they should stare you down when you get close enough. Just like 
Rakk, Corpse Eaters fly around in circles and then will home in on you. A 
Shotgun is far and away the best weapon choice, because unlike Rakk Corpse 
Eaters are very small and their diving attacks can make things very 
disorienting.

You might want to wait until they are over the coast so you can easily collect
each [BLOODWING EGG] without having to walk through the ocean. There is also
also a small amount of Corpse Eaters hanging out near Dr. Ned's office. You
need 25 total in order to complete the mission.

When you enter the southwest corner of Hallow's End, a dramatic cinema directs
you to T.K. Baha's leg on the front porch of a house. Walk up to the house
with the large "Fyrestone" sign hanging overhead and inspect the leg to pick
up this mission.

T.K. couldn't have gotten very far without his prosthetic leg, so try looking
inside the house. Well whaddya know? T.K. Baha is inside, and he has been
turned into a zombie!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

All you have to do for this mission is to collect ten Zombie Brains and bring
them back to Zombie T.K. Baha. Zombie Brains are dropped by all Zombie types,
but only if you score a headshot (most headshots are an instant kill).
Fortunately, Zombies respawn pretty frequently and you won't have to leave an
area in order to get them to reappear - you can circle around the entire map
in order to get enough brains.

There are plenty more than ten Zombies running around Hallow's End, so go
outside and wrangle up [10 ZOMBIE BRAINS] for T.K.

You don't want these missions to linger in your inventory, so as soon as you
have the desired amount return to Zombie T.K. Baha and turn it in. 

 - Brains: 10/10
 - TURN IN!

After receiving his meal, T.K. will gobble them up and regurgitate a random
piece of equipment for you. Talk to him to go on another brain-fetching quest.

Holy crap, 250 Zombie Brains?! You will definitely want to pursue other

story you should have enough. If you are still under, the best way is to pick

| Patricia Tannis here. There have always been legends of a mysterious and   |
| elusive creature out at Jakobs Cove. Some people call him Pumpkinhead.     |
| Pretty spooky, huh? I just call him Bob. As a scientists with a bit of a   |
| crackpot reputation, this story captivates me. I would love a first-hand   |
| account of the creature. Of course, the best way to prove something like   |
| this exists - which will then vindicate a so-called "obsession with such a |
| frivolous pursuit" - is a body. So while a really blurry picture or an     |
| ECHO with some unidentifiable sounds on it would be nice, a corpse would   |
| be better. It's said to roam the swamps but only comes out when people     |
| carve creepy faces into pumpkins and put candles in them. Doesn't make     |
| sense to me, but I never was any good at cooking.                          |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

After picking up this mission from the bounty board, head over to Hallow's
End. Proceed through the bayou and enter the town. There are two pumpkin
patches inside the village; the larger of the two is to the west and serves as
the location of Pumpkinhead. At the end of the pumpkin patch is a cave opening
and two Jack-o-Lanterns. Light the first one.

 - Jack-o-lantern 1 lit: Objective Complete

Now light the second one.

If that's all it took to disturb Pumpkinhead's sleep, then I am surprised that
he is considered such a rare and elusive mythical creature.

| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| Unsurprisingly, Pumpkinhead is a large humanoid monster with a pumpkin for |
| a head. He has decent speed, but overall you should be able to outrun him  |
| if he ever gets too close to you. The problem with Pumpkinhead is that all |
| of his attacks can Daze you, which promptly puts you in your place and     |
| allows him to cover ground. Just another reason to avoid his moves.        |
|                                                                            |
| Pumpkinhead has three attacks. He can either punch you from up close, or   |
| he can use one of two long-range attacks. The first and most common is     |
| when the boss will throw a pumpkin bomb at you - he does this pretty much  |
| all the time. Sometimes Pumpkinhead will stop and breathe fire at you      |
| while rotating his body.                                                   |
|                                                                            |
| You shouldn't have a problem damaging Pumpkinhead since his weak point is  |
| so big. Aim for his head to get critical hits and completely drain his     |
| health (he doesn't have a shield). As the fight rages on and the boss      |
| loses health, holes begin to appear in his head. An overall easy battle.   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Corpse found: Objective Complete

Pumpkinhead's head goes soaring off his body after you take the final shot. If
you look down his neck hole, you'll see that his body is completely hollow.
Don't know if it's a graphical error or glitch, but maybe it was just a
possessed pumpkin or some type of poltergeist? Anyways, there's your proof of
the mystical Pumpkinhead.

Since this mission becomes available after the "House of the Ned" story quest
and takes place in Generally Hospital, you might want to pick it up and kill
two birds with one stone.

Walk through the graveyard and continue up the slithering hilltop path as you
fend off any Zombies that get in your way. When you reach the flight of stairs
leading to the hospital's main gate, there should be an [ECHO RECORDER] on the
railing.

 - Clue found: Objective Complete

After listening to Jackie O'Callahan's ECHO Recorder, walk down to the bottom
of the hill. If you go southeast, you should exit the cemetery and onto a 
beach. As soon as you step onto the beach, hang a right and squeeze between
the rocks to enter a cave campsite with another [ECHO RECORDER] inside.

 - Zealot found: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Don't worry about the rest of the map... you'll be extensively covering it on
one a later sidequest.

| Dr. Ned here. Seems like my antidote from skag blood didn't quite have the |
| intended results. You're lucky you survived your encounter with the so     |
| called Wereskag. I wish I could say he was the only one, but the other     |
| test subjects seem to have formed a pack and are terrorizing the coastline |
| by the old hospital. You should really take care of them to avoid the      |
| spread of that disease as well. Man, sometimes I wonder if maybe I should  |
| have been a villain instead of an NPC.                                     |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Unsurprisingly, Dr. Ned has you on mop-up duty. Hank Reiss may be out of the
picture, but unfortunately there were more innocent test subjects that have
been transformed into Wereskags and must be put down.

All four Wereskags roam the beaches surrounding Generally Hospital, and I am
pretty sure you encounter them in a random order. However, after playing the
mission a few times, I have managed to find a common order, but don't worry if
you fight them in a different order than what is listed.

Return to Generally Hospital through the secret entrance and walk down to the
beach. Generally Hospital is home to usually one or two Loot Goons, and you
may encounter him here on the beach. Loot Goons are large green Frankenstein
monsters that carry a Red Chest on their back. They have Shock-based attacks
and will either throw lightning projectiles at you or deliver a Shock tremor.
Once he's down, you can claim his [RED CHEST] as a reward. Loot Goon chests
contain exceptional equipment.

Up ahead, past the New-U Station and through the tunnel, you will run into the
first member of the pack: the brown Wereskag Bigfoot. He may run away if he
spots you, but if so follow him up the coast, grabbing the contents of the
[SILVER CHEST] inside the shipwreck. Watch out for Skelerakk flying overhead!

| Trust me, this ain't no Sasquatch. This is another Wereskag who happens to |
| share the same name. Bigfoot roams around the beach near the shipwreck and |
| allows you to take the first strike. Bigfoot is just like Hank Reiss in    |
| that he is incredibly weak against Fire. You better hope that Bigfoot does |
| not flee the scene, because if so he will run to the next area where the   |
| second member is found, and you'll have to fight both together! If that    |
| happens, simply fight one at a time and don't switch between targets.      |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Bigfoot killed: Objective Complete

If Bigfoot did not run to the north, then you should be fine. Proceed up the
hill and you will come to a portion of the beach with a couple cabins. This
area is big enough to house two Wereskags (three if the first one ran here),
so you may have to fight a pair of bosses at a time.

| Whiskey Wesley is the blue Wereskag, although he does not have any Shock   |
| affiliation. Go for the mouth to get a nice critical hit, and try to use   |
| any Incendiary attacks on this boss. Just like Hank Reiss and any other    |
| Wereskag, Whiskey Wesley has a jump attack, a claw swipe attack, and a     |
| ground pound attack. Watch out for his health regeneration!                |

Jackie O'Callahan is always the final pack member left. There is a [SILVER
CHEST] on the front porch of the second cabin. Take down any Skelerakk that
decide to butt in, then continue along the beach; O'Callahan is usually just
past the third cabin.

| that doesn't seem to slow down his movements. Still, use Incendiary guns   |
| if ya got 'em and aim for the mouth. When you see red light emanating from |

activate the elevator to arrive near the cemetery hill. Follow the mountain

You can reach Dead Haven by activating the transition gate on the Coastline
docks. In order to follow through in this side mission, you must complete the
story mission "Secrets and Mysteries" in the process. Once in Dead Haven, head
to Dr. Ned's secret lab and pick up the [ECHO RECORDER] in the corner next to
the gurney.

The next piece of information is farther away. Leave the lab and crawl through
the opening on the east side of the wall to reach the Apartment District.
There are a lot more Lance Zombies here than before, so make sure to destroy
them first to potentially avoid a mass of Scorpio Turrets.

The Red and Silver Chests in Old Haven are still present here in Dead Haven,
so make sure to search the place for new equipment. Pass by the New-U Pole and
head to the northwest section of Dead Haven. There is another [ECHO RECORDER]
in front of an old hut used for medical experiments.

 - Info found: 2/2

After listening to Ned's insane ramblings on the ECHO Recorders, you should
probably have a heads-up on what comes next.

| Is that "Franken Bill", or "Frank and Bill"? Ha. Haha. Ha... anyways, this |
| crazed creation is not only resistant to Shock, but any Shock attacks will |
| actually heal him! Put away your guns, switch to a different grenade,      |
| equip another artifact, anything to avoid accidentally healing your        |
| opponent.                                                                  |

| Franken Bill isn't the fastest of enemies, but boy is he strong. To boot,  |
| all of his attacks are Shock-based, so they can drain your shield in one   |
| or two hits. He can be incredibly dangerous if you aren't careful, and     |
| like Pumpkinhead, his attacks can stun you which often leads to a deadly   |
| one-two punch that many people can't come back from. It's usually a punch, |
| followed by a giant electrical shockwave slam.                             |
|                                                                            |
| The good news is that you aren't restricted to the northwest quadrant when |
| fighting the boss. Feel free to leave and walk onto the main street in the |
| middle of Dead Haven. Franken Bill usually doesn't leave his designated    |
| area, so you can actually snipe him from a distance without him chasing    |
| after you. I guess when Dr. Ned was assembling him he forgot to use one of |
| the two available brains.                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| So really all you have to do is lure him over to the street and run down   |
| until you reach a point where he doesn't chase you anymore. Make sure to   |
| use yourself as bait, because if you get too far away Franken Bill will go |
| back underground and the battle will reset. He is able to throw Shock      |
| balls at you from a distance, but it's a lot more manageable than the      |
| boss's other two moves.                                                    |

Once the Jakobs Claptrap comes into town, you can pick up this mission at the
bounty board. All you need to do is leave town through the south exit and
approach the Dropship New-U Pole. There is a dead bandit inside a beached
rowboat clutching the [POWER COUPLING]. Pry it from his cold, dead fingers.

Head back into town and climb up the walkway leading to "Lucky's". There is
an old Jakobs vendor on the front porch that can be reactivated as soon as you
reinstall the Power Coupling.

The vending machine is a combination of a Med Vendor and a Weapon Vendor: it
primarily deals weapons, but you can also find some Class Mods. The items for
sale are of higher status than your standard vendor, so it at least deserves a
look see. In fact, the vendor shuts down after completing the main story, so
you really may want to check out what limited time offers it has.

You can receive this job kinda early in the story, but it cannot be completed
until you have at least obtained the story mission "A Bridge Too Ned". So once
you have reached that point in the main quest, set off for the Lumber Yard.

The first [ECHO RECORDER] is found near the beginning of the area. Walk down
the slope towards the bus and you can find it next to the two vendors. This
device helps locate the whereabouts of one of the hired guns. Based off of his
audio transcript, things probably didn't go his way. Ruh roh!

Continue down the road and then walk up the hill and down into the ravine.
You can find another [ECHO RECORDER] next to a dead body underneath the
bridge. Say hello to the Moron.

 - Moron found: Objective Complete

The next [ECHO RECORDER] is just before the main bridge. When you have reached
the bridge, walk around the side of the house next door to find the recorder
next to another unfortunate casualty.

 - Newb found: Objective Complete

Cross the main bridge towards the excavator and enter the area with the tree
stumps. Stay on the left side of the area and step onto the first dock to
locate an [ECHO RECORDER]. Continue up the hill and past some Wereskags, then
proceed through the second half of the forest. When you reach the second
bridge, grab the [ECHO RECORDER] leaning against the jack-o-lantern.

 - Wuss found: Objective Complete

Continue across the bridge to encounter a huge Zombie ambush. Once you have
survived, proceed to the entrance of the Mill. Fight off more Zombies and some
Wereskags, then continue towards the transition gate leading to the Mill. Next
to the gate is another corpse and [ECHO RECORDER]. Poor guy was so close!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The Claptrap can be found at the entrance to the Mill. After crossing the
second bridge, walk past the mill and go northwest up the hill towards the
building. The border prevents you from going any further, but you can locate
the Claptrap near a conveyor belt.

From the Claptrap's location, head southeast down the slope. Near the corner
of the yard is a stack of lumber that looks just like all the others. However,
one key difference is that one of the logs is slanted like a ramp. Jump onto
this log and walk up the side of it, then step off once you're at the top of
the stack and collect the [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT].

 - Repair Kit: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

You will receive a Backpack SDU for your troubles. The Claptrap punches a few
buttons on the conveyor belt, which turns it on and wheels the log down the
chute. Follow the Claptrap to the other side and a [RED CHEST] slides out.
How did that happen?!

| Zombies |__________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Zombies are the main enemy form in The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned. These are
slow, bumbling enemies overall that still strike fear into the hearts of their
prey due to their elusive behavior and dead silence. Zombies spawn from the
ground and can crawl out of the earth in large groups. Their numbers are
overwhelming and it can be very easy to get surrounded because these enemies
make very little noise and can easily sneak up on you. Always look over your
shoulder!

Zombies are resistant to Shock and Corrosive damage, but Fire and Explosive
attacks bring them down in a hurry. Like in all Zombie literature, destroying
the brain is the way to go and a headshot will kill them instantly (though it
strangely leaves their brain completely in tact).

.--------.
| Zombie |
'--------'
Your run of the mill, old-school Zombie. No rage virus nonsense. Just regular,
slow, shambling Zombies. Most of the time they are too far away to use a melee
attack, so these monsters can also spew green vomit at you. These green
projectile balls can sometimes cover your screen and make things hard to see
for a second or two before it dissipates. Zombies are really weak, though
they have strength in numbers. Always aim for the head for a one-hit KO.

.-------.
| Torso |
'-------'
A simple, clear-cut name: Torsos are dismembered Zombies that do not have a
lower body, so they slowly crawl on the ground towards you. They have the same
attacks as regular Zombies, but aren't as effective due to their severely
restricted movement. However, they can fly under the radar and can crawl
through bodies of Zombies previously killed, so always scan the ground to see
if there are any Torsos crawling around.

.---------.
| Defiler |
'---------'
Defilers are one of the most annoying Zombies. These tall, lanky, shirtless
Zombies are faster than regular Zombies and are capable of running. Their main
attack is a long, steady stream of green vomit that covers your entire screen
and reduces your movement to a snail's pace. Defilers make more noises than
other Zombies and usually emit a loud gurgle. They always run away after
making their move, so often look for the pasty white guy with his back to you.

.---------------.
| Psycho Zombie |
'---------------'
Psycho Zombies look just like Psychos, but have a brownish green color and
are obviously (un)dead. They are without their signature axe and weird
gibberish, but can still be spotted by their mask. Psycho Zombies are a bit
faster than normal Zombies but their mask restricts them from using projectile
attacks. Make sure to kill a Psycho Zombie with one hit; if they are knocked
down, their eyes will glow red and they can superhuman speed as they set their
sights on their target and bull rush you.

.---------------.
| Midget Zombie |
'---------------'
Midget Zombies don't really look like Mutant Midget Psychos, but they are
about half the size of other Zombie types. They make more noise than other
enemy types and still have the same jittery laugh, which is a clear indicator
of their presence. Midget Zombies can be difficult to hit because they are
skittish and are champion longjumpers. They also do not have a puke attack and
will instead leap at your face and then run away.

.----------------.
| Suicide Zombie |
'----------------'
Suicide Zombies have the same frame as a Brute: they have an imposing stature,
but are a lot easier to take down than Brutes. They always carry an explosive
barrel with them and will throw it at you when in range; this barrel can be
shot while still in their possession for an immediate kill, and they are very
easily spotted in a large crowd because of their weapon. Once they are without
the barrel, Suicide Zombies will run up to you, puff up, and explode. If this
is the case, shoot out their legs.

.--------------.
| Lance Zombie |
'--------------'
Lance Zombies are the remains of fallen Crimson Lances and therefore only
encountered in Dead Haven. They still wear Crimson Lance armor, which both
restricts their movement and also gives them durable shielding. All Lance
Zombies appear to have been Lance Engineers during their lifetime, because
they all have the ability to summon Scorpio Turrets. Just like all Zombies,
they can be killed with one headshot. Just like all Lance Engineers, their
Scorpio Turrets will go with them.


.---------------.
| Frankensteins |____________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

These enemies are very rare and you will only fight a handful of them during
a single playthrough. They are a spitting image of Frankenstein's Monster,
although are a lot bulkier. These creatures are a lot faster than their size
implies, and have a wide range of attacks. They have several melee strikes,
an electric shockwave, and Shock projectiles. Not only are Frankensteins
resistant to Shock attacks, but they will actually heal your target!

.--------------------.
| Badass Tankenstein |
'--------------------'
Badass Tankensteins have explosive barrels strapped to their backs; the same
type that Suicide Zombies use. However, Badass Tankensteins somehow have a
huge supply of them and will repeatedly use these barrels in an attempt to
destroy you. The explosions are hard to dodge, so you're best off shooting
them out of the air. The easiest way to take down a Badass Tankenstein is to
shoot at the barrel on his back until the thing explodes. Once the enemy is
momentarily dazed, unload a clip on his head.

.-----------.
| Loot Goon |
'-----------'
Loot Goons carry a Red Chest on their back as opposed to a Badass Tankenstein,
and are tougher to defeat since there's no easy way out. All you can really do
is aim at his weak point (his head); it is still possible to stun him after
repeated blows. You can claim the Red Chest for yourself after bringing one
down; the contents of a Loot Goon's chest are much better statistically than
other Red Chests.


.---------------.
| Other Enemies |____________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

.----------.
| Wereskag |
'----------'
You fight a number of Wereskag bosses, but regular Wereskags are only found in
the later stages of the Lumber Yard. Wereskags have ridiculous agility and
will disorient you by zig-zagging around. Like Skags, their weak point is
their gaping maws and Wereskags are deathly weak against Fire-based attacks.
When you get a Wereskag down to a fraction of its health, make sure to finish
the job or else it will completely restores its HP and go into berserk mode,
greatly boosting its strength and speed.

.--------------.
| Corpse Eater |
'--------------'
These social animals resemble large ravens and travel in huge groups. Their
main location is the Coastline in Jakobs Cove and will divebomb you if at any
chance. Corpse Eaters are like Rakk in that regard, but they are much harder
to take down since they are so small and they constantly flutter around your
head. Shotguns work well up close.

.-----------.
| Skelerakk |
'-----------'
Skelerakk are undead Rakk. It's as simple as that. You can only find them on
the beaches of Generally Hospital and they tend to stay out of your way unless
you get too close or physically provoke them. Treat them like you would any
Rakk, although be aware that they have much more HP than a regular Rakk.

| BOSS: Hank Reiss |_________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: N/A             Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| If you completed the side mission "Missing: Hank Reiss", then you should   |
| know a little bit of this guy's backstory. He was a test subject for Dr.   |
| Ned's antidote, and apparently it hasn't gone all that well. Or maybe it   |
| has. I mean, he ain't zombified. The antidote has turned Hank Reiss into a |
| mindless Wereskag                                                          |
|                                                                            |
| The boss looks just like how a hypothetical cross between a man and a Skag |
| would look: he walks on two legs but can run on all fours, his head and    |
| shoulder regions are covered in armor plating, and he has sharp teeth.     |
|                                                                            |
| As your first Wereskag enemy, Hank Reiss can be a tough boss. He has       |
| insane speed and therefore only uses melee attacks. It can be very hard to |
| separate the two of you, so close-range weapons may work best. Like all    |
| Skags, you can get a critical hit by shooting Hank's open mouth. He is     |
| also very weak against Incendiary attacks, so any Fire-based equipment you |
| may have is definitely a good choice.                                      |
|                                                                            |
| Hank can make things very problematic when he uses his berserk attack. If  |
| the boss has low health, he will restore a considerable amount of HP and   |
| also increase his speed and strength; it helps extend the fight and makes  |
| him a much more threatening target. The easiest way to kill Hank Reiss is  |
| to use Fire, but otherwise stick to close-range guns and Action Skill.     |

| BOSS: Ned |________________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: N/A             Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| Don't let his appearance and profession fool you: Dr. Ned is no pushover.  |
| I mean, he isn't exactly hard, but he isn't a pushover either! Dr. Ned     |
| wields a unique SMG that has ricocheting bullets, so hiding around the     |
| corner isn't a safe move. Luckily, the rectangular room is spacious and    |
| allows you to get far away from the boss.                                  |
|                                                                            |
| Dr. Ned wears a shield, but it isn't very strong; you can deplete it with  |
| a few critical hits. He has decent health as well but nothing you haven't  |
| seen before. The boss may hide behind barrels, but they are not explosive  |
| and cannot be used to harm him. Just keep your distance and treat him like |
| any human enemy. Trust me, you shouldn't have much of a problem.           |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

| BOSS: Undead Ned |_________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: N/A             Resist: Corrosive, Fire, Shock                      |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| Undead Ned can be a major pain. He is a lot bigger and more menacing than  |
| his human form, but the only main difference between the two fights is     |
| that Undead Ned does not have a shield (and therefore has a ton more HP).  |
| The boss is a huge Zombie-like creature with an oversized claw for one     |
| hand and a scythe for another. He seems like a capable swimmer and spends  |
| the entire fight wading through the water; Undead Ned is very fast and you |
| will have a hard time staying away from him.                               |
|                                                                            |
| Undead Ned has the ability to summon Zombies to the fight. When you see a  |
| red aura appear from his hand, a Zombie will rise from that position. Most |
| of the time it's a regular Zombie, but Undead Ned can spawn any type of    |
| Zombie except for Lance Zombies. At the end of the battle he begins a      |
| spawn spree, which helps in case of needing a Second Wind.                 |
|                                                                            |
| The boss mainly uses melee attacks which is standard for most bosses, but  |
| he also has a few other tricks up his sleeve. Sometimes Undead Ned uses a  |
| toxic puke attack like all Zombie enemies, but he can fire out a wave of   |
| puke balls that covers an arc in front of him. These projectiles get stuck |
| to your HUD and makes things hard to see, and also considerably slows down |
| your movements.                                                            |
|                                                                            |
| Another dangerous attack is when Undead Ned winds up and then releases,    |
| spinning and bouncing around the room like a pinball. To make matters      |
| worse, the boss extends his scythe hand and can deal major damage any time |
| he runs into you. Lastly, Undead Ned is able to submerge in the blood and  |
| reappear somewhere else (usually right next to you). May attention to your |
| radar or the rippling waves in the liquid to see where he's at.            |
|                                                                            |
| Just aim for the head like most enemies. If things get pretty hairy, try   |
| keeping one of his minions around so long as it's a regular Zombie. Don't  |
| want Suicide Zombies or Midget Zombies lingering around for too long.      |

| BOSS: Pumpkinhead |________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |

|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| Unsurprisingly, Pumpkinhead is a large humanoid monster with a pumpkin for |
| a head. He has decent speed, but overall you should be able to outrun him  |
| if he ever gets too close to you. The problem with Pumpkinhead is that all |
| of his attacks can Daze you, which promptly puts you in your place and     |
| allows him to cover ground. Just another reason to avoid his moves.        |
|                                                                            |
| Pumpkinhead has three attacks. He can either punch you from up close, or   |
| he can use one of two long-range attacks. The first and most common is     |
| when the boss will throw a pumpkin bomb at you - he does this pretty much  |
| all the time. Sometimes Pumpkinhead will stop and breathe fire at you      |
| while rotating his body.                                                   |
|                                                                            |
| You shouldn't have a problem damaging Pumpkinhead since his weak point is  |
| so big. Aim for his head to get critical hits and completely drain his     |
| health (he doesn't have a shield). As the fight rages on and the boss      |
| loses health, holes begin to appear in his head. An overall easy battle.   |

| Trust me, this ain't no Sasquatch. This is another Wereskag who happens to |

| allows you to take the first strike. Bigfoot is just like Hank Reiss in    |
| that he is incredibly weak against Fire. You better hope that Bigfoot does |
| not flee the scene, because if so he will run to the next area where the   |
| second member is found, and you'll have to fight both together! If that    |
| happens, simply fight one at a time and don't switch between targets.      |

| Whiskey Wesley is the blue Wereskag, although he does not have any Shock   |
| affiliation. Go for the mouth to get a nice critical hit, and try to use   |
| any Incendiary attacks on this boss. Just like Hank Reiss and any other    |
| Wereskag, Whiskey Wesley has a jump attack, a claw swipe attack, and a     |
| ground pound attack. Watch out for his health regeneration!                |

| Redjack, the red Wereskag, looks kinda like Bigfoot but they all share the |
| same characteristics and abilities. Redjack may barge in on you during the |
| fight with the second pack member, just as a forewarning. It is important  |
| to focus on one boss at a time due to their berserk ability. If someone is |
| low on HP, quickly finish them off before they can fully restore their HP  |
| and essentially restart the battle.                                        |

| Father O'Callahan is the leader of the pack and is a bit stronger than the |
| other three. The grey Wereskag has a tombstone embedded in his back, but   |
| that doesn't seem to slow down his movements. Still, use Incendiary guns   |
| if ya got 'em and aim for the mouth. When you see red light emanating from |
| the boss's body, make sure to bring him down before he can heal and go     |
| berserk.                                                                   |

| Is that "Franken Bill", or "Frank and Bill"? Ha. Haha. Ha... anyways, this |
| crazed creation is not only resistant to Shock, but any Shock attacks will |
| actually heal him! Put away your guns, switch to a different grenade,      |
| equip another artifact, anything to avoid accidentally healing your        |
| opponent.                                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| Franken Bill isn't the fastest of enemies, but boy is he strong. To boot,  |
| all of his attacks are Shock-based, so they can drain your shield in one   |
| or two hits. He can be incredibly dangerous if you aren't careful, and     |
| like Pumpkinhead, his attacks can stun you which often leads to a deadly   |
| one-two punch that many people can't come back from. It's usually a punch, |
| followed by a giant electrical shockwave slam.                             |
|                                                                            |
| The good news is that you aren't restricted to the northwest quadrant when |
| fighting the boss. Feel free to leave and walk onto the main street in the |
| middle of Dead Haven. Franken Bill usually doesn't leave his designated    |
| area, so you can actually snipe him from a distance without him chasing    |
| after you. I guess when Dr. Ned was assembling him he forgot to use one of |
| the two available brains.                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| So really all you have to do is lure him over to the street and run down   |
| until you reach a point where he doesn't chase you anymore. Make sure to   |
| use yourself as bait, because if you get too far away Franken Bill will go |
| back underground and the battle will reset. He is able to throw Shock      |
| balls at you from a distance, but it's a lot more manageable than the      |
| boss's other two moves.                                                    |

You will have access to DLC once you have purchased it as a standalone or if
you own the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition. The regions in the three
main DLC packs are completely separated from the main world (for the most
part) and the only way to reach a DLC region is by Fast Travel (you can still
use Fast Travel to get to these areas prior to completing the story mission
"Powering the Fast Travel Network".

The DLC packs accomodate your character's current level by properly adjusting
enemy and equipment levels, so feel free to pick up and play at any point
during the main quest (you must be at a minimum of Level 10). As a result,
mission levels and rewards fluctuate completely based on your current level
and there is no way to accurately gauge the amounts (although I believe the
mission levels are in increments of five and the number closest to your
current level is chosen).

Off to T-Bone Junction! In The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, the Atlas
Corporation is still on the  rise even after the death of Commandant Steele,
and is now run by Steele's superior: General Knoxx. As soon as you boot up the
DLC, you will receive a transmission from an enigmatic woman named Athena,
giving you your first story mission.

T-Bone Junction is sort of a rest stop between two long highways stretching
through the Parched Fathoms, the main setting of the DLC. Exit the Travel &
Customs Administration building and head towards Scooter's garage across the
street. I guess he decided to move sometime between the main story and now.
You may also notice a new vehicle type next to the parked Runners. You'll be
given the chance to drive some new rides in this DLC.

If you peer around you'll get a feel of the scenery for The Secret Armory of
General Knoxx. The Parched Fathoms used to be a humongous body of water long
ago, but erosion and other meteorological activities has reduced it to a
barren desert. You will be seeing the same drab setting that you have become
accustomed to in the main game. Sorry.

Go inside the garage to meet Scooter. Always great seeing him again.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The three parts Scooter needs to complete his new vehicle model are scattered
around T-Bone Junction. This mission allows you to properly walk around the
area and see what it has to offer. After leaving the garage, turn to your
right. There isn't much on west side of the junction aside from a New-U Pole
and a bounty board. There is a side mission available already. Climb up onto
the roof of the Shotz Bar to reach a [SILVER CHEST] on the roof of the
adjacent building. 

The north and south ends of the junction give you access to the highway, but
they are closed off for now. Head east towards the ramp and you'll be able to
go around the bend and search the upper portion of T-Bone Junction. Before
going up the slope, approach the New-U Pole and walk around the lower catwalks
to find the [X-372 SUPERCHARGER].

If you fall off the edge (or anywhere in T-Bone Junction for that matter) and
down to the Parched Fathoms, you will respawn back in a safe area but you will
not have to pay a death fee.

 - Supercharger: Objective Complete

If you jump across the pits and maneuver all the way to the other end of the
catwalks, you can find a [RED CHEST].

 .---------------------------.
 | Easter Egg: Lilith Shrine |
 '---------------------------'
 - The catwalks underneath T-Bone Junction has some interesting offers. If you
   hop across the broken catwalks and make it towards the Red Chest on the far
   end, you can also find another hidden gem. On the opposite end of the chest
   is a door with a red light on it, which usually indicates a locked or
   otherwise inaccessible door.
   
   There is a switch next to the Red Chest, and hitting it does not make any
   noise or turn it green. Despite this, walking around to the door reveals
   that the door is now unlocked. Inside is a weird shrine dedicated to
   Lilith, with her wanted poster hanging up and decorated with lavish signs
   and neon lights. The poster itself even has some, well, strange
   enhancements...
   
   Well if the profession of love wasn't weird enough, a midget jumps out of
   the fridge if you open it. This guy is called Meat Popsicle and attacks you
   with a frozen drumstick. It's safe to assume this creepy little bastard is
   the culprit behind the Lilith shrine, but you might want to keep the fridge
   closed if you decide to check this place out: Meat Popsicle is Level 61 and
   will put on a clinic if you aren't anywhere near that level.

Return to the street and go up the ramp, then enter the circular parking lot 
next to another New-U Pole. Before you have any time to look around, a
dropship violently crashes into the parking lot.

| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| Now that you are a wanted man, the Atlas Corporation will periodically     |
| send mercenaries to hunt you down. Vulcana's arrival is the first instance |
| of that. Vulcana usually stands on the sidelines and lets the four Lance   |
| Assassins take a stab at you first. Lance Assassins duel-wield katanas and |
| are incredibly nimble and elusive. They are essentially ninjas. However,   |
| Lance Assassins have pitifully low health and can be killed in one or two  |
| critical hits.                                                             |
|                                                                            |
| Vulcana is taller than regular Lance Assassins and has more powerful armor |
| than her underlings, except she is helmet-less. She has a number of melee  |
| attacks and will either kick you with her super stiletto boots or go for a |
| slice and dice approach. The boss can also fire rockets at you.            |
|                                                                            |
| It's hard to get a clean shot off with the boss moving around as much as   |
| she does. It is more difficult to fight this battle with a Combat Rifle or |
| Sniper Rifle, but you do have a good opportunity when Vulcana stops to     |
| fire a missile at you. If you prefer close-range combat with Shotguns,     |
| then you should be fine here. Aim for her head, deplete her shield, then   |
| don't let up.                                                              |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

The side mission "Wanted: Dead!" is automatically placed in your inventory
after getting rid of Vulcana. Back to the search for car parts; the [NITROUS
OXIDE TANK] is near a pile of old tires here in the parking lot.

 - Nitrous tank: Objective Complete

If you exit the parking lot and follow the street, you will run into Marcus
Kincaid's super store on the east end. It's a pretty nice looking store
compared to his shop in New Haven, and it still contains a Weapon and Ammo
Vendor. Also, check out the little talking dude on the front counter. Uhhh...

Follow the road to the northwest side of T-Bone Junction. This portion is
overlooking Scooter's garage and the rest of the junction. Here you'll find
an elevator that takes you back down to the garage and Dr. Zed's Roadside
Jumpstart Infirmary. You can strip an [EXHAUST PIPE] from a beat-up Runner
next to the infirmary to receive the final car part.

 - Exhaust Pipe: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Look over the edge of the dock near the yellow bus and jump down into the
hanging boat to find a [RED CHEST]. The only way to get back up is to jump
down into the abyss, but this doesn't count as a death and you won't have to
pay a fee. Either ride the elevator or parkour your way back to Scooter's
garage and hand in the mission.

While you were gone, one of the Crimson Lance femme fatales did a number on

| - Clear the Crimson Lance Roadblock                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Now that you've got some wheels, head out to Moxxi's and find the          |
| informant who can help you deal with Atlas. The Crimson Lance has set up   |
| checkpoints along the highway to control travel in the region. You need to |
| open the road in order to be able to reach Moxxi and find Athena.          |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Atlas and the Crimson Lance has a stranglehold over the main highways in the
Parched Fathoms, so in order to reach Moxxi and find out more info about
Athena you must destroy their roadblocks.

Use the Catch-A-Ride Station inside of Scooter's garage to spawn a Monster.
Unlike the Runner, there is only one type of Monster: it is slower and bulkier
than the Runner and has machine guns mounted up front and a rocket launcher
turret. It's essentially a beefed up Rocket Launcher Runner. The force fields
keeping you inside the T-Bone Junction are down, allowing you to drive south
towards the Crimson Tollway.

The Crimson Tollway is a long, winding highway with a large roadblock in the
center. And just because it's a narrow road does not mean you won't find any
resistance: there are conical stations that deploy Lance Probes and Crimson
Lance vehicles that patrol the roads. You should know that any Crimson Lancers
driving around will only attack when provoked. Sometimes it is best to leave
them alone.

Every so often you will come across a garage on the side of the road with a
New-U Pole and Catch-A-Ride Station in case you ever get stranded.

You encounter one of the Lance Probe stations right away. One thing different
about the Monster is that the rocket launcher turret fires a group of homing
rockets that lock onto a target and destroy them. You should have little
trouble bringing down the Lance Probes. Up ahead at the gap in the road, make 
sure to boost across the ramp.

When you come to the next garage, keep your distance and begin backing up when
the two Gatling Turrets spot you. There is also likely a Crimson Lancer
rolling around. A Lancer is a tank-like vehicle even bigger and sturdier than
the Monster and can shoot electrical pulse blasts. 

Make sure to take down the Crimson Lancer first as you drive backwards. You
may have to abandon your car if things get too heated. As for the Gatling
Turrets, you can stay at a safe distance and fire homing missiles in their
direction. 

Continue past where the pair of Gatling Turrets were, then park your Monster
near the yellow school bus and crack open the [RED CHEST] on top of it. The
Crimson Lance roadblock is just around the corner.

In addition to the three main Crimson Lance types you have experienced (Lance
Infantry, Engineers, and Defenders), this DLC introduces a bunch more. Lance
Combat Medics act as the team healer - the Scorpio Turrets they deploy heal
other Crimson Lance nearby, so you will want to keep an eye out for the pearly
white armor of Combat Medics. Lance Rocketeers are easy to spot because they
fly through the air using a jetpack and attack with rockets. And you have
already seen the catlike Lance Assassins.

You also have three elemental types: Shock Troopers, Chemical Troopers, and
Pyros; each one wears armor with their elemental color to easily separate them
from their peers, and they all attack with their specific element and wear
shields that are resistant to the same element type (for example: Chemical
Troopers are donned in green armor, use Corrosive attacks, and have
Corrosive-resistant shields).

Park your vehicle at the roadblock; the stairs on the left don't lead anywhere
important, so take the stairs on the right side of the road. A few Crimson
Lance arrive via a trapdoor, so eliminate them and remember to not leave any
Energy Core left unattended. Go across the bridge towards the south side of
the roadblock and continue fighting baddies. The majority of the enemies here
appear to be Shock Troopers.

Stay on the upper walkway and take down any Crimson Lance that emerges from
the red force field spawn points. There are more guys below that you can hit
by reaching over the balcony. Continue forward to reach the southwest end of
the roadblock, killing anyone that gets in your way. Watch out for any Badass
enemy that appears (they are commonly one of the three elemental troopers).

Open the [RED CHEST] near the bridge and walk across into the office. You can
spot four wanted posters of the four Vault Hunters hanging on a bulletin
board. They're all pretty funny to read, but I like that Brick has the largest
bounty on his head. Fiddle with the computer terminal to lower the force field
and disable the roadblock.

 - Clear Roadblock: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Exit the office and head opposite the way you came to reach a dead end with a
[CRIMSON LANCE CHEST] in the corner. Crimson Lance Chests are silver and red
and are much larger than Red Chests, which means that they contain more
equipment and generally hold more valuable stuff than Red and Silver Chests.
It is truly a gift to stumble upon one of these.

Jump down onto the highway and enter your Monster. You can turn in the mission
by driving past the roadblock.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

An ECHO transmission from General Knoxx chimes in after passing the roadblock.
You are treated to the strange mixture of lackadaisical, cynical, and sadistic
attitude that makes him a fan favorite. The remainder of the highway contains
a lot more Lance Probes and Crimson Lancers, but you can boost past all of
them without any trouble. Enter the Deep Fathoms at the transition gate.

Continue across the highway until it splits, then take the exit ramp to reach
the ground. As I mentioned before, the region spanning several areas in this
DLC is basically a giant desert, so expect to see plenty of sand and rocks.
The Deep Fathoms is no different. This is primarily bandit territory, and you
will also run into modded Monsters called Cheta Paws. How did the bandits mod
and secure them already? They've been on the market for like an hour...

There are a few neat places to explore, but leave it for later and focus on
finding Moxxi. Moxxi's Red Light is on the far end of the highway, but the
road is split in two so you must go down to the desert and take the long way.
Watch out for the giant red mines half buried in the sand. Lance Mines will
detonate if you bump into one, and the explosion can pretty much wreck your
vehicle in one hit.

Cut through the desert and loop around to the bandit camp on the southeast
corner. The bandits here are all standard, but their names are different than
what you are used to. Bandit Thugs are called Outlaws, Bandit Raiders are now
called Desperados, and Bandit Killers has been shortened to just Killers. So
rush into the camp with your vehicle and annihilate the Outlaws, Desperados,
Killers, and Bruisers.

Drive up the entrance ramp to the other side of the highway, then get out and
walk past the barricades. There are some more bandits and another surprise
near the entrance to the bar, so get out your big guns.

| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| If you look into the sky as you get closer to Moxxi's Red Light, you can   |
| actually make out the dropship as it careens into the highway. Several     |
| Lance Assassins appear and begin attacking. Again, they are very fast but  |
| also incredibly weak. You can melee one as she gets close to you to stun   |
| her, then finish the job. There are about five or six in total.            |
|                                                                            |
| Next, direct your attention to Hera. Unlike Vulcana, she wears a helmet so |
| you won't deal quite as much damage with headshots. The boss rarely uses   |
| long-range attacks such as missiles, so this battle resembles one against  |
| a regular Lance Assassin. Also remember that Crimson Lance enemies drop    |
| Energy Cores if you picked up the "Core Collector" sidequest, so the cores |
| dropped by the Lance Assassins should help against Hera.                   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Collect the loot left behind by Hera's squad and open the [SILVER CHEST] on
one of the buildings. Walk up to the front door of Moxxi's Red Light and hit
the switch. I like how Moxxi uses the same tone and dialogue regardless if you
are playing as a male or female.

| You need to infiltrate Lockdown Palace, an old prison that is now a town   |
| run by the former inmates. Their leader, Mr. Shank, has kidnapped Athena   |
| with plans to turn her in to the Crimson Lance for the substantial reward  |
| money. You need to infiltrate the prison and rescue her. The highway has   |
| Crimson Lance roadblocks that need to be removed.                          |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Since you cannot Fast Travel between DLC-specific areas, you must hike all the
way back to the T-Bone Junction. By now, all the enemies have respawned as
well. At least now you can use a Racer, which is a lot faster than the Monster
and will make the trip slightly more bearable. The Racer is a tricked-out
Runner with ultra boosts, so it's a lot faster than anything you have driven.

From the T-Bone Junction, drive north and into the Ridgeway. The Ridgeway is
just like the Crimson Tollway: it is merely a highway connecting two major
areas together. There are many Crimson Lancers and Lance Probes along the way.
This time you have a choice: either fight your way through and gain XP with
the Monster or fly under the radar and stay undetected with the Racer.

At the south roadblock, dismount and climb the stairs. Grab the stuff inside
the [SILVER CHEST] and take down the first group of Crimson Lance. Go up the
stairs to find a [RED CHEST], then go back down and cross the bridge to the
west side.

Prepare to fight a number of Crimson Lance and probably a Badass as well. Most
of them seem to be Crimson Lance Pyros. Pop open another [SILVER CHEST] and
continue forward.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Cross the bridge ahead and disable the roadblock from inside the office.

 - Removed South roadblock: Objective Complete

Make sure to collect the [CRIMSON LANCE CHEST] on the other side of the office
before dropping down onto the highway. Continue ahead and drive over the ramp
near the two Gatling Turrets, then blast 'em from afar (there is also a
[SILVER CHEST] next to the two ramps). When you reach the row of storage
containers, get out and continue on foot.

This isn't the north roadblock, even though technically it is a roadblock.
Begin shooting at the Crimson Lance ahead and continue until you reach a dead
end. If you look over the left side of the highway, you can find a path
leading down to a walkway underneath the road. Down here you'll fight a couple
waves of Lance Rocketeers.

Walk up the stairs to get back onto the highway. Take down a band of various
Crimson Lance and enter the tunnel on foot. There's a [SILVER CHEST] on your
right as you go inside. You'll also run into a Devastator, a huge Crimson
Lance mech that attack using their huge shotgun cannon arms. Shoot at the guy
piloting the mech inside the faceplate for critical hits.

Exit the tunnel and continue mowing through Crimson Lance until you reach a
Catch-A-Ride garage. Hop in a vehicle and ride to the north roadblock, which
is similar to the other roadblocks in terms of structure. There seem to be
more Chemical Troopers here than any other roadblock, so take it for what it's
worth. 

There are [2 RED CHESTS] at the west end near the office. The computer switch
activating the force field is inside the office.

Unfortunately, there is no Crimson Lance Chest opposite from the office; only

| It is now time to put your stunt driving skills to the test. Moxxi has     |
| instructed you to find an outcropping near the prison that is your ticket  |
| in. From there, the route into the prison should become apparent.          |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

The stretch of highway past the north roadblock leads to the Sunken Sea. The
Sunken Sea is massive; it probably rivals the Dahl Headlands in terms of open
space and general size. It's so big that you really should never be without a
vehicle.

There are many hazards in the Sunken Sea. There are several bandit outposts
around the region, including a place called Midgetville: a cliffside town in
the east side of the map that exclusively houses midget enemies. On the flats,
you can find Cheta Paws driving around as well as massive Drifters.

These titanic foes look like oversized daddy long legs and are incredibly
powerful. They spit Corrosive goo at you and can create an stomping slam
attack. Drifters can easily annihilate you, whether you're in a car or not.

Most of the time you will be staying on the ground, but you can also drive up
one of the many ramps to reach the highway system above you. It helps to get a
good vantage point when attacking Drifters and is also home to some goodies.
If you boost up onto the broken highway near the southwest corner and drive to
the end, you can find a [RED CHEST] teetering on a sliver of concrete.

There is a lake on the east side of the map, just south of Midgetville. If you
go inside the cabin here below the Hyperion billboard, you can find a friendly
midget that offers a couple sidequests. If you drive up the entrance ramp and
jump onto the walkway attached to the billboard, you can find a [RED CHEST].

If you check out the southeast nook, you'll stumble upon another bandit camp.
This one contains mainly Psychos, but if you clear the place out you will be
treated to [2 RED CHESTS] and a [SILVER CHEST].

Drive to the northwest side of the Sunken Sea to discover Lockdown Palace. It
used to be on an island, but now that there is no water left the prison sits
high atop a spire. You will have to infiltrate it from above. 

Look around the area surrounding Lockdown Palace. There is a small metal ramp
west of the island, and the ramp leads you through a circular hole in the
mountain. The only way to get through to Lockdown Palace is with a Racer. Back
up and begin boosting towards the ramp; too much boost is problematic, so it
will take a few tries to get it in the hole.

 - Outcropping found: Objective Complete

You emerge from the hole onto a road. Follow the winding road up to a highway
and drive off onto the top of the mountain, which apparently is where Moxxi's
first husband lived. Stay inside your car and line up with the huge ramp, then
boost up and over the prison walls. You will need a lot of air to clear the
gap, so it may take several tries. Don't get discouraged!

 - Prison entered: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Since you have your Racer in the prison yard, run over all the enemies.
Inspect the ECHO device to relay back to Moxxi and open the door to Lockdown

| - Kill Mr. Shank and rescue Athena                                         |
|                                                                            |
| Now that you are inside, you need to find Mr. Shank, the so-called warden  |
| of Lockdown Palace. He has a Personal Teleporter Device that belongs to    |
| Athena. You need to recover the PTD from him in order to rescue her. If    |
| you can get the device from him, all you'll have to do is find Athena.     |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Use the two vendors at the entrance before continuing to the main gate. It'll
open, revealing the interior of Lockdown Palace. Here's where you will fight
the first batch of prisoners. Prisoners are essentially bandits with different
character models: Punks are just like Bandit Thugs/Outlaws, Bangers are
exactly like Psychos, and Badass Thugs are Bruisers.

Before you move on, open the set of lockers near the main entrance to the
prison; Truxican Wrestler should leap out. This is the third Loot Midget, so
kill him and reap the rewards.

Defeat the enemies ahead and hang a left. Wipe everyone out and clear out the
lootable objects. Mr. Shank will phone in as you head into the tunnel; what an
interesting bunch of prisoners they've got here...

You'll encounter some Enforcers down here in the cavern; they may have the
same appearance as a Psycho, but they always wield guns and are more like
Bandit Raiders/Desperados. Follow the path until it veers to the right. In
front of you, prisoners will crawl from the side of the cliff and begin
attacking. Defeat the enemies, then turn to the left instead and hop over the
box to find a [RED CHEST]. Now continue north and up the stairs.

You'll receive another transmission from Mr. Shank. Go west into the bay and
go south to spot another [RED CHEST] behind a pile of boxes... except Mini
Steve is inside. Now head north and take care of the prisoners ahead (you can
find another [RED CHEST] out in plain sight). Once the coast is clear, talk to
the imprisoned Claptrap to get another sidequest, then leave the bay.

In the next chamber, you'll fight a large mob of prisoners, including several
Badass Thugs that slowly emerge from the door in the back. Sorry Jerome! Head
towards the Ammo and Med Vendor, then enter the holding cell area. You won't
find Athena here, but there are a lot of baddies inside.

Check the fridges around this general area because sometimes Meat Popsicle
will appear. This is an easier option since Meat Popsicle here isn't Level 61,
so it is a good way to gain the Achievement without having to kill the one at
T-Bone Junction.

Proceed through the corridor and eventually you'll tumble down a hole into the
showers.

| BOSS: Mr. Shank |__________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |

| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| You can expect what type of fight you'll have on your hands just by the    |
| boss's name alone. Mr. Shank is all about melee attacks: he is practically |
| always hovering over you while stabbing you with his handmade shiv. Since  |
| Mr. Shank is almost always up in your grill, it is very hard to try and    |
| separate the two of you. Even when you do manage to catch a breather, the  |
| boss retaliates by throwing daggers at you.                                |
|                                                                            |
| Mr. Shank seems to be resistant to all elements, making this fight even    |
| tougher. He has an incredibly large shield, and the majority of the fight  |
| will consist of you trying to drain it (though Shock attacks help, like    |
| always).                                                                   |
|                                                                            |
| After a little bit, the boss will begin using Athena's Personal Teleporter |
| Device to warp around the square room. The showers are small enough that   |
| he doesn't get very far away, but it can still get disorienting at times.  |
| Look for the red pillar of light to determine where Mr. Shank will appear  |
| next. Most Action Skills are useful in this battle to either create some   |
| distance between you and the boss or help track him down.                  |
|                                                                            |
| A close-range fight of this nature can make things difficult for players   |
| who prefer the comfort of Sniper Rifles and other safe alternatives. But   |
| that's why you bring a gun to a knife fight.                               |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Kill Mr. Shank: Objective Complete

Grab all the loot left behind, including the [CRIMSON LANCE PERSONAL
TELEPORTER].

 - Acquire teleporter: Objective Complete

Now all you have to do is track down Athena. Open the green door to exit the
showers, then follow the passage to the main hall. There is an entire fleet of
prisoners in the main hall, mainly Enforcers, so utilize cover and healing
items. There is an elevator in the northwest corner that raises you to the
second floor.

A lot of prisoners will appear out of the dark holding cells, so keep your
head on a swivel. Fight your way to the little dining area at the south end.
Nearby is a [SILVER CHEST] for the taking, and inside is a staircase leading
up to the third floor. Slay a few more enemies and run to the other end. Open
the [CRIMSON LANCE CHEST], then the door to find Athena.

 - Find Athena: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Hand over the PTD, then watch as Athena teleports out of her cell. To turn in
the mission, simply leave the room.

| Athena is free. She has asked you to rendezvous with her at Scooter's      |
| garage in T-Bone Junction.                                                 |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

There are easier alternatives, but I still suggest hiking back to T-Bone
Junction on foot (in a vehicle). You first order of business is getting out of
Lockdown Palace. Back at the showers, the other door should be unlocked. Head
through the laundry room and ride the elevator to the two vendors.

| Chaz, Mr. Shank's assumed lover, has received word of his death and is out |
| for revenge. You will encounter Chaz in the room with the two vendors, and |
| he is joined by a large group of prisoners; usually Punks and one or two   |
| Badass Thugs. Their presences makes this boss fight much harder than it    |
| needs to be, so wipe out the lesser prisoners first.                       |
|                                                                            |
| There isn't a lot of wiggle room here, and there are only a few boxes you  |
| can crouch behind. Not the best boss arena. Use your Action Skill at the   |
| start of the fight to help get rid of the prisoners while you take cover.  |
| Chaz has a shield and a nice amount of HP (though his shield is much, much |
| weaker than Mr. Shank's), and wields a Bone Shredder, the same gun used in |
| the Bone Head boss fight wayyyy back. In the end, Chaz is just a slightly  |
| beefed-up prisoner; just another slightly problematic hurdle.              |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Pick up the [BONE SHREDDER] and resume your escape. This won't be a walk in
the park, as there are a lot more prisoners waiting for you in the earlier
rooms. A garage door opens in the bay (near the Red Chest with Mini Steve
inside), revealing another - you guessed it - [RED CHEST].

Leave Lockdown Palace, hop in a vehicle, and boost off the ramp. Return to the
Ridgeway and happily drive through. Yeah, the barricades have been removed so
you can drive all the way through the highway. Along the way, you will pick up
several transmissions from Athena. Turns out that Atlas is using an armory - a
Secret Armory perhaps - in order to gain the upper hand on their enemies.

 - Return to T-Bone Junction: Objective Complete

Now step inside Scooter's garage and talk to Athena for all the details.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The secret access code is stored in one of the roadblocks at the Ridgeway. If
you don't mind making a few pit stops, this is a good time to also complete
the "This Bitch is Payback" sidequest.

Ride through the Ridgeway and continue where the barricades used to be. Get
out of your vehicle near the waypoint and descend the stairs underneath the
highway. You should stumble upon some info down here on the catwalks.

The access code has apparently been abandoned at the World's Largest Bullet, a
tourist attraction located in the Sunken Sea. Once in the area, drive to the
western end and you should be able to spot the bullet from a considerable
distance: it really is the World's Largest Bullet!

Park at the entrance and proceed through the gate. There are only regular
bandits lurking inside the area, so I guess you beat the Crimson Lance in this
little race. After wiping everyone out, walk over to the booth near the two
vendors and inspect the ECHO Recorder.

Feel free to check out the rest of the World's Largest Bullet. There is an

Now would be a good time to complete any sidequests left in the Ridgeway or
the Sunken Sea, because this is the last you'll be seeing of those two areas
for a while.

Proceed to the Deep Fathoms via the Crimson Tollway. Drive your car to the
southwest corner of the map and get out. Near the New-U Pole is a tiny patch
of land you can shimmy onto, which takes you to a building. Climb on top of it
and then walk across the bridge to the other side of the gorge. A Badass
Rocketeer will fly up from underneath you; take him out and inspect the panel

|____________________________________________________________________________|

You should definitely complete all active sidequests not involving Road's End
before you start the mission (including the bounty board mission "Drifter
Lifter" and Moxxi's "Stain Remover"), because once you complete this and enter
Road's End, you won't want to turn back. Stop by Moxxi's Red Light to receive
some new sidequests.

Ride over to the Catch-A-Ride Station near the bandit encampment. Now that the
bridge is activated, you can ride across the gorge and enter Road's End. Drive
your vehicle through the gateway and run over the Crimson Lance; don't worry
about the highway on the west end - you won't be going there for a long, long
time. Get out of your vehicle, as the invisible wall permits your car from
entering, then walk across the bridge to Road's End.

You don't actually have to stick around in Road's End for this mission, but it
is a good idea to explore the area and complete the necessary sidequests
before moving on.

| Ceresia will arrive in her dropship after taking no more than five steps   |
| into Road's End. First you will want to take down the three or four Lance  |
| Assassins that exit out of the dropship. You've been down this road many   |
| times, so you should know how to handle 'em.                               |
|                                                                            |
| The boss wears a large helmet along with her blue armor and wields a small |

| have a ton of room to fight her so you should try to distance yourself     |
| from Ceresia to get the most out of this boss battle.                      |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

After that, feel free to do whatever you want in Road's End. Once you are
ready, proceed to the desert and look for an entrance ramp near the southwest
side to get up onto the elevated highway. From here, you can follow it south
until you reach a barricade. Climb the stairs on the right for it to take you
to a [RED CHEST], then jump down and follow the highway south.

| Before you can go much farther, you are stopped by a small band of Lance   |
| Assassins. Yep, you know what's coming next. At least this is the final    |
| encounter between you an the Omega Assassins. Defeat them, then face off   |
| against Helicon.                                                           |

| Helicon wears a helmet just like the previous Omega member and dons green  |
| armor. She uses projectile attacks, but unlike Vulcana and Ceresia, this   |
| chick hurls a cluster of shurikens at you. Avoid the ninja throwing stars, |
| then retaliate.                                                            |
|                                                                            |
| Helicon spends most of the time pulling off cartwheels and other acrobatic |
| moves, making it hard to target her head. You are better off not even      |
| trying and aim anywhere on her body. This is no different than all the     |
| other Omega Assassin fights, but Helicon does have the most health out of  |
| the group.                                                                 |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Defeat the group of Crimson Lance and the Devastator past Helicon's dropship
and exit the highway onto the cliffside path to the left. This is kinda the
final challenge before reaching the Crimson Armory, so naturally the Crimson
Lance is sending everything it's got in order to keep you out. There is an
overabundance of enemies here, especially Badass enemies. There is a [CRIMSON
LANCE CHEST] near the first portion of the walkway.

Open the [CRIMSON LANCE CHEST] around the corner, only to have Crimson Shorty
jump out. This should be your final Loot Midget if you have been following all
the sidequest along with the story missions, meaning that you will obtain the
"Sneaky Little Buggers" Achievement. Continue the rest of the way to the
Crimson Armory.

The main entrance seems to be unfinished, but waltz through the cave and down
into the tunnel. Take either elevator up to the front yard, where you will
finally meet face-to-face with General Knoxx.

| Strategy:                                                                  |

| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| Being the final boss of this DLC, General Knoxx can be very imposing. He   |
| resembles a Devastator, although bigger and more powerful. Knoxx himself   |
| only uses two attacks throughout the whole fight. He can rocket into the   |
| air and then stomp down to create a miniature earthquake; the attack is    |
| also used in order to fly over to you if you are too far away. The boss    |
| also fires electrical blasts from his two rail gun arms. Since they are    |
| Shock-based, they can destroy your shield in a hurry.                      |
|                                                                            |
| Knoxx isn't very fast, and the front entrance to the armory is gigantic.   |
| You shouldn't have any trouble running and hiding from Knoxx if you need   |
| to restore health or reload. The main issue with this boss battle is that  |
| General Knoxx is almost never alone.                                       |
|                                                                            |
| The first wave of enemies include two Devastators. They appear around a    |
| minute after the boss starts. They'll just get on your nerves, so you will |
| want to kill them as soon as they show up. After them, Lance Combat Medics |
| will begin to show up, two at a time. They are huge nuisances because they |
| can use their Scorpio Turrets to heal themselves and Knoxx.                |
|                                                                            |
| Pay attention to your radar for when extra red blips appear and go after   |
| the Lance Combat Medics. There is no need to make this boss fight any      |
| longer than it needs to be, and two Scorpio Turrets can completely refill  |
| Knoxx's HP bar.                                                            |
|                                                                            |
| General Knoxx is resistant to all elemental types, but that should not     |
| hinder your efforts. Always shoot at the boss's head, because he will      |
| flinch after nearly every critical hit. Rapid-fire weapons such as Combat  |
| Rifles or SMGs work great because you can repeatedly hit his noggin and    |
| keep stunning him over and over again.                                     |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Once General Knoxx falls, make sure to grab his gun, [KNOXX'S GOLD], along
with the other loot. If you want to create chaos with explosions, then this is
the gun for you. Proceed through the open gate on the west side of the arena
to reach the armory entrance.

You must put in the access code to open the door. Remember: Blue, Yellow,
Cyan, Orange. There are four switches, and pressing X will each change their
color. Arrange the switches in the correct order to crack the code.

 - Enter code: Objective Complete

Inside, sprint down the corridor to the elevator. You have to expose the
munitions before you set the place to blow, and you can do so by fiddling
with the computer in the elevator.

 - Expose munitions: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

You detonate the bomb and the countdown begins as soon as you accept this
mission.

 - Start countdown: Objective Complete

Now all you have to do in order to comply with the quest guidelines is to
ride the elevator. Technically you don't have to steal a single piece of
equipment.

 - Steal loot: Objective Complete

But where's the fun in that? This is an armory, after all! The place is
brimming with Silver Chests, Red Chests, and Crimson Lance Chests. It is
impossible to collect them all, so you will have to limit what you can get in
the allotted time.

The timer is displayed on many screens throughout the armory, plus Athena will
chime in every so often. The most important thing you need to know about this
bonus mission is that you can not die. Don't worry about trying to find an
escape route before the bomb goes off. When the bomb counts down to zero, a
cutscene will begin and the main story mode ends. So utilize every second you
have got and collect as much rare loot.

What you will want to do is open every chest in a vicinity, then do a lap
and actually collect the contents while they are all opening. Generally you
have two goals here: either collect as much crap as you can to sell, or try
to find rare weapons.

If you're looking for rare guns to use, only collect Blue, Purple, and Orange
weapons to ensure you get the best quality stuff. You don't have time to look
at the gun type or name; just go by color.

If you just want to load up your inventory with potential cash, you may want
to empty your inventory at the start of the mission so you have enough room 
for the good stuff. Just grab everything you can get your hands on and don't
worry about reading the equipment name. Good luck and have fun!

 - Boom!: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

You will appear back at the Crimson Armory entrance. The armory is shut down,
so you cannot get back inside the building. Return to T-Bone Junction and turn
in all your missions, including this one. Athena gives you [ATHENA'S WISDOM],
a slick Repeater Pistol with Shock powers.

This DLC is far from over - nearly half of the DLC's sidequests only become
available after this mission, so you still have a lot of work to do!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Haven't heard from Helena Pierce in a while. General Knoxx seems to be a lot
more intense and strict than Commandant Steele, issuing Crimson Lance Security
Cameras around T-Bone Junction to keep a watchful eye on its denizens. They
are red and silver and sort of look like tiny rocket ships.

The first one is near the bounty board on the far west end. The Lance Probes
will launch into the air and begin shooting as soon as you open fire, but it
should not take any more than three seconds to destroy it.

The second Lance Probe is on the roof of Scooter's garage. There is a set of
stairs on the side of the building that brings you to the rooftop. Next up,
proceed to the east end near Marcus' shop. The camera is on the side of the
road.

The next security camera is stationed on the northwest end of T-Bone Junction,
past the infirmary. To access the fifth and final Lance Probe, return to the
catwalks underneath T-Bone Junction.

| Hello! With the Crimson Lance in the area there is a great opportunity for |
| us. Their armor has these special energy cores inside them. A top secret   |
| piece of Atlas technology. Torgue, Maliwan, and Hyperion are always on the |
| lookout for them. If you bring some to me there is a lot of dough in it    |
| for you.                                                                   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

You'll want to pick up this mission as soon as it becomes available, because
it is the same type of jobs as the "Brains" side mission chain in the Zombie
Island of Dr. Ned DLC. Crimson Lance enemies drop three types of Energy Cores:
Power Cores (red), Speed Cores (yellow), and Shock Cores (blue). Crimson Lance
enemies will only begin dropping these once you receive this mission.

What's neat about Energy Cores is that you benefit from picking them up, as
each one gives you temporary ability boosts. Power Cores increase your attack
strength, Speed Cores make you move faster, and Shock Cores instantly charge
your shield and release blasts of electricity. This mission should be easier
and nowhere near as tedious as the "Brains" missions because the items in
question actually help you in battle.

You must collect 50 Power Cores, 25 Speed Cores, and 100 Shock Cores. Once you
do that, return to Marcus and cash 'em in.

 - Power cores: 50/50
 - Speed cores: 25/25
 - Shock cores: 100/100

You automatically get this side mission after defeating the first Omega
Assassin, Vulcana, and her team during "Boost the Monster". The four remaining
mercenaries appear during specific story missions, so there is no way to skip
out or miss one of them; as long as you follow the main story, you should
eventually complete this sidequest. Check the main walkthrough if you are
looking for specific boss strategies on these gals.

Hera is found in Deep Fathoms, during the mission "You've Got Moxxi: Moxxi's
Red Light". Follow the spiral ramp leading up to the Underdome, then start
walking on foot. The dropship should land in front of the building and the
battle will commence.

 - Survive Hera's squad: Objective Complete

Minerva is the third member of the Omega Assassins and the second one required
to kill for this sidequest. You will find her in the Ridgeway, during the
story mission "Prison Break: Road Warrior". The duel will take place during
your attempt to disable the south roadblock.

 - Survive Minerva's squad: Objective Complete

Ceresia is the fourth Omega Assassin member, and is encountered during the
story mission "Armory Assault". Ceresia initiates the battle the second you
step foot into Road's End. 

 - Survive Ceresia's squad: Objective Complete

Helicon is the fifth and final Omega Assassin, and she is also the strongest.
The battle against Helicon also occurs during "Armory Assault" and takes place
in Road's End, at the very end of the map when you are on the highway leading
to the Crimson Armory.

 - Survive Helicon's squad: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

In order to turn this mission in, you must make a trip to the Crimson Tollway.
Stop at the roadblock and make your way into the office, where inspecting the
bulletin board with the four Vault Hunters wanted posters will turn it in.
In addition, a note signed by the four characters is placed on the board.

Talk to Scooter back at T-Bone Junction to receive this sidequest. Your
journey takes you to the Ridgeway, and the Lancer Digistruct Module is
specifically located in the part of the highway where you are on foot. The
[LANCER DIGISTRUCT MODULE] is found on a crate across from the stairs that
leads down to the catwalks underneath the highway (where you always fight the
Lance Rocketeers).

 - Found Digistruct Module: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Once you report back to Scooter, you will be able to select the Lancer from
any Catch-A-Ride Station. The Lancer is slower than the Monster but built like
a tank. Using RT you can fire machine guns and with LT you can shoot an
electrical blast similar to Eridian weaponry. You can also enter a mine seat
which deploys Crimson Lance proximity mines, and a standard gunner seat which
fires the Eridian blasts.

This job is basically free XP and cash; only requiring you to destroy ten
bandit vehicles. Cheta Paws are modified Monsters and can be found driving
through the Sunken Sea and the Deep Fathoms. There are a handful per area,
but they respawn quickly - you don't even have to exit and re-enter the area. 
Despite its light frame, the Racer is a suitable choice for turning Cheta Paws
into scrap metal.

And despite that the mission card is filed under the Sunken Sea, you can still
complete this sidequest by destroying the Cheta Paws found at the Deep
Fathoms.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The first waypoint is slightly misleading: the bomb you need is inside
Midgetville, near the eastern lake. The best way to access the town is from
above, so drive onto the highway and park your car near the New-U Pole. Open
up the [SILVER CHEST] and descend the stairs to enter the hanging village.

Just past the first building is a refrigerator, and opening it will spawn Meat
Popsicle. He's one of the Loot Midgets, and this one is nowhere near as tough
as the Level 61 Meat Popsicle in the Lilith shrine, so you might want to take
care of this one in order to work towards the "Sneaky Little Bugger"
Achievement.

Midgetville is filled with midgets (understandably so), including some new
enemy types: you have Midget Rustlers, Raiders, and Ravagers. Rustlers and
Raiders both wear armor and attack just like Mutant Midget Psychos, and Midget
Ravagers throw dynamite at you. Badass Midgets are covered head to toe in
scary armor.

After going down the stairs, turn around and head north. Follow the bridge to
the green support beam holding up the highway. With some nifty jumping, you
can reach a [RED CHEST] on one of the platforms branching off of the pillar.
If you fall, it's not the end of the world. At the bottom of Midgetville you
will be susceptible to Skag dens and the creatures that live inside.

Skag Riders are a new enemy type in this DLC: they are midgets riding a Skag.
Skag Riders are any one of the new midget type (Rustler, Raider, or Ravager)
riding a regular Skag. A Skag Rustler is a Skag ridden by a Midget Rustler,
and a Skag Ravager is a Skag ridden by a Midget Ravager. The names tend to
correlate with those two types. A Skag Rapparee is a three Midgets riding on
one Skag. Then there's the Badass Skag Rider, which is a Badass Midget riding
on a Badass Elemental Alpha.

Things can get pretty chaotic down here, so you may want to run up the nearest
flight of stairs to keep away from the Skag Riders. If you manage to fall down
to the ground, climb back up to the top.

From the support beam, go down the ramp to the lower level. Straight ahead is
a tiny red hut with a Crimson Lance poster on the side and a [RED CHEST] on
the roof. Continue smashing Midgets and then walk through the concrete pipe
to reach a platform with a [SILVER CHEST] and a ton more Midgets. When you're
done, grab the [BOMB] off of the table.

 - Bomb found: Objective Complete

Make your way to the ground level and wipe out all the Skag Riders and
remaining Midgets. Exit Midgetville and use the Catch-A-Ride garage to spawn
a new vehicle. Your next destination is the center of the map, where the
bandits have constructed a large encampment spanning a large portion of the
highway and underneath. You can enter the area from multiple directions, but
the best and most direct way is from the west side.

There isn't much on the ground level aside from a [SILVER CHEST] and a handful
of bandits. Proceed up the ramp to reach the highway portion of the camp. You
won't have to explore much here since all this place has to offer is a few
ammo crates. Take down the Outlaws, Desperados, and Killers as you continue
through the highway encampment. Eventually you will come to the waypoint.

 - Charge placed: Objective Complete

The switch to destroy the power line is all the way on the ground. After 
placing the bomb on the generator, look behind the house to spot a [RED
CHEST]. From the edge of the highway you can actually see the wire extending
towards the detonator.

Before jumping off the highway, look below the broken part of the road. Follow
the chain attached to the nearby crane and you should spot a [CRIMSON LANCE
CHEST] atop a metal platform hanging over the side of the highway. Carefully
drop down from the side of the road onto the platform, open the chest, then
fall all the way down and sprint to the detonator.

 - Powerline destroyed: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

|____________________________________________________________________________|

After entering Sunken Sea, head to the eastern lake and go inside the small
cabin attached to the pier. There is a friendly midget inside named Thirsty
the Midget, and talking to him unlocks this sidequest.

You must set off to find and restore four pumps in order to get the "purple
juice" flowing (who knows what the stuff actually is...). Also, Lord of the
Rings fans will get a kick out of the pump names. :)

First set off for the Brandybuck pump, which is all the way northwest, past
Lockdown Palace. Watch out for the cluster of Lance Mines stuck in the sand
as well as the ones hanging from the thick chains. This is a midget camp, so
you will be fighting Midget Rustlers, Raiders, Ravagers, and Shotgunners.

Your main concern is avoiding the Lance Mines, because the Midgets can
accidentally set them off and create all sorts of problems. One grenade can
automatically destroy a Lance Mine. Make sure to turn the wheel crank to turn
on the pump. There are also a couple chests: a [SILVER CHEST] on the northern
balcony and a [RED CHEST] on the ground near the pump.

 - Restore Brandybuck pump: Objective Complete

There is a regular bandit camp east of Lockdown Palace. If you turn to the
right after going through the main gate and jump on the crates, you can follow
the outer wall and cross a bridge leading to a [SILVER CHEST]. From up here,
you can peer down and attack all the bandits (mainly Outlaws, Desperados,
Killers, and a couple Psychos).

There is a [RED CHEST] on the north end of the Took pump camp, however, there
is no treasure inside. Instead, Mini Steve jumps out and attacks! This is a
Loot Midget, a midget enemy that hides inside lootable objects throughout The
Secret Armory of General Knoxx. In the case of Mini Steve, he hides in Red
Chests, and this Red Chest here will always spawn a Mini Steve. You will get
the "Sneaky Little Bugger" Achievement for killing one of every Loot Midget
type.

Go east towards the Took pump and ignore it for now. Instead, walk around the
building to spot a Red Chest near a gigantic Skag den. Here you will fight
some Skag Riders; usually Badass Skag Riders.

You will fight a handful of different Skag Riders here. You must kill both
parties: the Skag will continue to run around after its pilot has been downed,
and a midget will attack if you take out the Skag first. Once the coast is
clear, open the [RED CHEST] and turn the pump.

 - Restore Took pump: Objective Complete

The next pump is down south, near the entrance. The Gamgee pump is very simple
to restore, since there is no surrounding camp and no enemies to deal with.
Drive over to the pump and turn the dial on the ground.

 - Restore Gamgee pump: Objective Complete

Of course, the cavalry shows up after you restore the pump. Mow down the
Midgets and specifically watch out for the Midget Ravagers - their spiked
helmets are a dead giveaway.

The Underhill pump is sort of near the southwest corner of the Sunken Sea. It
is smack dab in the middle of the desert; you can't miss it. Again, there is
no resistance when you first get there, though there may be lingering Cheta
Paws and/or Drifters in the vicinity. The pump handle is in plain sight; all
you have to do is wade through a pool of the mysterious purple juice to get to
it.

 - Restore Underhill pump: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Return to Thirsty the Midget at his lakeside cabin. As a reward, you obtain
the [CHIQUITO AMIGO], a Repeater Pistol with a huge magazine.

| You've learned from Thirsty that the midgets in the area used to run with  |

| region. The bandits in the region have dubbed him "Motorhead". The midgets |
| would like your help to finally put him out of his misery.                 |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

After restoring the flow of purple juice and gaining Thirsty the Midget's
trust, he offers you this mission. Sledge has been rebuilt as the Six Hundred
Dollar Man and it's up to you to put him down for good. 

Your first order of business is to investigate the rumor of Motorhead's
existence. Enter the Ridgeway and follow the waypoint towards the south
roadblock. If you are coming from T-Bone Junction, you should find a platform
on the right side of the road. Jump on and follow the stairs down to a cabin
underneath the highway. Inside you'll find [SCIENCE NOTES] proving Thirsty's
theory right.

 - Rumor investigated: Objective Complete

Now head south towards T-Bone Junction. There is a ramp leading underneath the
highway on the left side of the road near the junction; look for signs labeled 
"Abomination Way". Drive down the ramp and underneath the highway, then get
out of your vehicle and walk past the barricades. Run over to the dead end and
Motorhead will emerge as you enter the garage.

| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| The legend is true! Sledge has been rebuilt with mechanical parts and is   |
| now bigger and stronger than ever. He has been rebranded as Motorhead and  |
| has a whole new style of attacking. The first thing you should notice is   |
| that Motorhead doesn't even have a head. There is a Gatling Turret where   |
| his head should be, and the boss has no true weak point.                   |
|                                                                            |
| Motorhead carries a gigantic hammer and will only use it if close enough   |
| to his target. His main form of attack is with the turret on his head. In  |
| a way, you're pretty much battling a moving Gatling Turret. You will have  |
| to be quick on your feet and constantly moving in order to avoid gunfire.  |
|                                                                            |
| The interesting thing I noticed about Motorhead is that he does not seem   |
| to leave his garage during the boss fight, so you can back up all the way  |
| to the barricade and he'll taunt you back from the garage. Any long-range  |

The Claptrap in question is actually a prisoner, not injured, so I'm not sure
what a Repair Kit is going to do for him. Anyways, he can be found in Lockdown
Palace, in the bay before reaching the two vendors inside. It is a good idea
to pick this mission up during "Prison Break: Try Not to Get Shanked", because
you must complete the majority of that mission before you can even reach the
Repair Kit.

After defeating Mr. Shank, proceed into the main hall. Fight your way through
the nasty prisoners and ride the elevator to the second floor. Run south to
the dining hall and pick up the [CLAPTRAP REPAIR KIT] on the shelf.

After freeing Claptrap, he drags you to a room and unlocks it for you. Inside

|____________________________________________________________________________|

The Lieutenants each reign over a roadblock in the Ridgeway, so you might as
well complete this while going for the "Code Breaker: Analysis" story quest.
Drive to the south roadblock, get out, and begin. You've been here before, so
you should know where you are going. You'll run into Kyros about halfway
through.

| Commander Kyros is a helmet-less Crimson Lance Lieutenant wearing green    |
| armor, meaning that he is resistant to Corrosive damage. Even though there |
| are no other Crimson Lance around, this can still be a challenging fight.  |
| Kyros fights like a super powered Chemical Trooper, using an Explosive     |
| Sniper Rifle and often enlisting in the help of a Corrosive Scorpio        |
| Turret.                                                                    |

| You will probably want to stay back during this battle. Kyros doesn't like |
| to leave his platform, so you can stay on the elevated ledges in front and |
| behind him and attack from the balconies. The guard rails and staircases   |
| should protect you from the Scorpio Turret; try to either destroy it or    |
| use grenades to shoo Kyros away and score some headshots.                  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Kill Kyros: Objective Complete

Kyros drops [KYROS' POWER], a strong Explosive Sniper Rifle. Also, this area
is where you fought Minerva, and since she is a respawning boss she may appear
as soon as the fight with Kyros ends. Just a heads up.

Next up: Typhon at the north roadblock. Park at the entrance and climb up the
roadblock base. You will run into Typhon at the end.

| Commander Typhon takes after a Badass Defender, carrying a big red shield  |
| that is resistant to all damage. You'll need great aim in order to squeeze |
| out critical hits on his head. Typhon is also accompanied by a couple      |
| various Crimson Lance, which can be helpful for Second Winds. Just make    |
| sure to immediately get rid of any Lance Combat Medics.                    |

| Treat this battle similar to the one against Kyros. You are in virtually   |
| the same arena as before with the same general layout. One positive note   |
| is that you can use Corrosive attacks to greatly weaken Typhon. Use the    |

Once you have made it to Road's End, you must head to the command center near

park near the opening leading to the building.

| Weird how the two Lieutenants are specifically referred to as "Commanders" |
| but Commander Ajax is just "Ajax". Whatever. Anyways, you'll have to draw  |
| Ajax out by killing all of his minions first. There are a lot of random    |
| Crimson Lance and always a few Devastators. There is very little cover in  |
| the area surrounding the command center so it is tough to avoid getting    |
| shot at: try to use your Action Skill in times of need.                    |

| Ajax himself wears a jetpack and bears resemblance to Badass Rocketeers.   |
| His armor is not that very powerful and is susceptible to elemental        |
| damage, especially Corrosive. He usually hovers within mid-range and uses  |
| his signature Combat Rifle to attack. Ajax himself isn't tough, but you'll |
| have to be on the lookout for other Crimson Lance. Devastators and even    |
| Badass Devastators tend to butt in at the most inopportune moments.        |

| Drifters are normally tough enemies, but Skyscraper towers over Drifters   |
| and is a lot meaner. He shares the same attacks: Skyscraper will either    |
| spew Corrosive projectiles at you or execute a jumping slam. Like all      |
| Drifters, Skyscraper has a very small body and can be hard to target with  |
| a gun unless you are up close. He does have several weak points: his two   |
| glowing eyes and the yellow bulb on his back.                              |

| Skyscraper normally appears with two or so Drifters, and they tend to gang |
| up on your vehicle. As soon as they spawn, boost away so you are out of    |
| their range and eliminate the Drifters with Lancer fire. If you don't get  |
| away in time, they will all jump on top of your car and crush you.         |

| You should not have to fight the boss on foot. In fact, it is recommended  |
| that you have a vehicle at all times; if yours is destroyed, locate the    |
| nearest Catch-A-Ride Station. Skyscraper is incredibly weak against Shock, |
| so the Lancer's Shock blasts can destroy the boss in about five hits.      |

There are five pieces of unflattering graffiti scattered around the Deep
Fathoms, and Moxxi asks you to find them and remove them in an attempt to fix
her reputation.

Drive north past the rock wall and get out near the New-U Pole. Proceed
through the opening towards a bandit encampment. You'll fight some Wild Alpha
Skags near the entrance. In the camp, climb the hill on the right and grab
the stuff inside the [SILVER CHEST].

Check out the left side of camp. Pass by the first building and down the big
group of bandits (you'll probably find a Badass Bruiser as well), then walk
down the trail to the second building. The piece of graffiti is on the left
side of the trail, reading "Moxxi Bitch".

 - Erase graffiti #1: Objective Complete

Continue to the second building to find a [RED CHEST] with Mini Steve inside,
then run onto the walkway for a real [RED CHEST]. Leap off the rock wall and
run to the nearby Catch-A-Ride garage. Drive over to the small bandit outpost
leading up to Moxxi's Red Light. As soon as you walk through the front door,
turn to the left and follow the interior of the border wall and you'll spot
the graffiti reading "Moxxi's got one in every chamber".

 - Erase graffiti #2: Objective Complete

Now return to the area where you completed the story mission "Bridging the
Gap". Run over to the first building where you'll spot the graffiti that says
"For a good time, ECHO Moxxi".

 - Erase graffiti #3: Objective Complete

Hop back in your vehicle and drive towards the entrance to the area, but do
not drive onto the highway ramp. Check out one of the support columns (second
from the right) to find a piece of graffiti on the side, reading "Moxxi does
it with a Jakobs".

 - Erase graffiti #4: Objective Complete

The final piece of graffiti is back in the bandit encampment where the first
graffiti was. Make your way back there and stay in the middle of camp. As soon
as you walk in, head over to the metal wall beneath the tower to find a piece
of graffiti that says "Moxxi likes it, Skaggie style!". Well now I can
understand why Moxxi wanted all five of those removed.

| I've been thinking about starting a vehicle stunt show. I've got an idea   |
| for some tricks, but what I really need is a loop the loop. There's a loop |
| out across the crevasse that some bandits built a long time ago, goodness  |
| knows why. Everyone's been telling me that it can't be done and I should   |
| give up on the idea, but I think you can prove 'em wrong.                  |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Simple concept, but hard to execute. There is a metal loop on the east side of
Road's End, in the middle of the desert. All you need to do is perform a loop
de loop with a vehicle and stick the landing. However, actually pulling off
the act is incredibly hard and will take many a retry. The best vehicle to use
is a Racer, and the first order of business is to clear the vicinity of all
Drifters and Lance Mines.

Boost is required to successfully get enough momentum at the top of the loop,
but too much speed will knock you off the track as soon as you make it over
the top. You will need to play with how much boost you use; try to boost your
way over the top, but as soon as you are upside-down turn off the boost. You
will usually need to slightly turn to the right as you start on the loop or
else you will shoot forward instead of actually looping the loop.

It takes a LOT of trial and error to complete this sidequest. It is a colossal
pain in the ass, so don't get discouraged if you spend an hour or so trying to
get it like I did. All I can say is: boost, pull to the right, turn off your
boost, and try to hold your vehicle on the track. If it's any consolation, at
least there's a Catch-A-Ride garage next to the loop so you can spawn a new
car if yours gets stuck on a roof or something.

You can recover the first one as soon as you enter Road's End. After taking
care of Ceresia's squad, collect the [ECHO RECORDER] on top of a red crate
leaning against a shipping container.

 - Find ECHO #1: Objective Complete

Next, hop in a vehicle at the Catch-A-Ride Station and drive down the slope.
Make a hard right and enter a canyon leading to the gondolas. Run over the
Skags in the way and stop near the gondola station. Search inside the tiny hut
on the outskirts of the lift station for the second [ECHO RECORDER].

 - Find ECHO #2: Objective Complete

Oh Admiral Mikey, you slay me. Anyways, drive southwest to another Catch-A-
Ride garage and park your car. Enter the cavern to the south and get ready to
do battle against a wave of Skag Riders.

Continue down into the tunnel and stay on the south branch when it splits.
Grab the contents of the [RED CHEST], then move onto the north branch. This
here takes you to a Crimson Lance building where, coincidentally, Commander
Ajax is located (feel free to kill two birds with one stone here). The [ECHO
RECORDER] is found on a box in front of the command center.

 - Find ECHO #3: Objective Complete

Now head up onto the highway; to get there, go over to the Catch-A-Ride garage
southwest of the loop and drive up the spiral ramp. Boost over the ramp in
dramatic fashion, then continue south down the road. Kill all the Crimson
Lance enemies at the barricade, then climb the stairs on the right. Cross the
bridge to the other side of the road and grab the [ECHO RECORDER].

 - Find ECHO #4: Objective Complete

Proceed south (you'll fight Helicon along the way) and follow the cliffside
path leading to the armory. This area is very dangerous due to all the Badass
Crimson Lance among the regular ones. There are a ton of enemies, but a lot of
cover, so play it smart. The fifth [ECHO RECORDER] is on a crate near the
corner where you begin fighting Lance Rocketeers.

| - Use a Lancer to find the Hidden supply stashes                           |
|                                                                            |
| You found a strange device which appears to be a special radar for the     |
| Lancer. The manual reads: "When installed this transponder detector allows |
| the driver to find Atlas supply stashes that were deem irretrievable at    |
| the end of the first occupation. The transponder pulse will appear on the  |
| radar when you are near a stash. The brighter the pulse the closer you     |
| are. A green crosshair appears in the radar when you are directly on top   |
| of the stash. At this point someone must jump out and dig up the stash. If |
| the entire radar is green you have already retrieved that hidden stash".   |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Upon entering Road's End, drive down the hill and veer to the west towards the
gondola area. Enter the cavern near the Catch-A-Ride garage and head south.
When the path splits, go east and walk onto the stone bridge; follow it to a
cabin on top of a stone pillar. Inside is a [RED CHEST] containing the [ATLAS
TRANSPONDER RADAR], and inspecting the device starts this mission.

Ignore the waypoint when following this mission, because it only points to the
cabin where the mission begins.

Cut through the cave and past the Crimson Lance command center to reach a
Catch-A-Ride Station. Spawn a Lancer and it'll have a new computer screen on
the right side to assist you in finding the loot. Pay attention to the two
circles on the radar: the blue blinking pulse and the red circle that grows
bigger or smaller depending on how close you are to a stash. When you are
practically on top of a stash, a green crosshair appears on the radar.

When you find one or two of the stashes, you'll generally get an idea of what
to look for because you can see the stashes buried in the sand without the
use of the radar, so if you are in the general vicinity but can't get the
crosshair to appear on the radar, just physically look on the ground for the
stash.

And for further record, the "stashes" themselves are actually Crimson Lance
Chests, so at each location you'll get a nice amount of equipment.

The first stash is found north of the loop, which is located in the desert on
the east end of the map. Drive up the hill north of the loop and scoot around,
paying attention to your radar. Sometimes the crosshair is hard to generate
because you have to be in the picture perfect position, but sometimes when you
are close enough to a stash you can get out of your car and scan the ground to
find an uncovered piece of the chest.

 - Stash 1: Objective Complete

Stash #2 is located in the northwest corner of the map, near the gondolas.
Drive down the road near the cluster of Skag dens; there are two Skag dens
on the east side and one den on the west side you should spot the stash in the
middle, closer to the west side with only one Skag den.

 - Stash 2: Objective Complete

The third stash is very close to the previous one. Head east down the road and
you should discover it before reaching the desert.

 - Stash 3: Objective Complete

Now drive west of the loop. You want to end up inside a small alcove between
the west entrance to the Crimson Lance command center and the entrance to the
southern highway. Roll around in this alcove to spot the stash.

 - Stash 4: Objective Complete

The final stash is just south of the loop, but north of the elevated highway.
Start at the loop and drive southeast and you should easily find it.

 - Stash 5: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

You can turn this mission in at the T-Bone Junction bounty board.

The Circle of Duty mission chain is reminiscent to other arena quest lines
from the main game. After obtaining the mission, set off for the Sunken Sea.
Drive onto the highway near the east lake and drive over Midgetville. 

Continue on the highway and look on your map for the waypoint. Just before
entering the tunnel behind Lockdown Prison, pull over and go up the staircase,
following the arrow signs to reach the Circle of Duty. It is a very secluded
area and hard to miss if you don't go slow enough. Inside, talk to Zach to
complete the mission.

Look behind you to find a Med Vendor, Ammo Vendor, and two Weapon Vendor. You
have everything that you need here to prepare yourself for the upcoming
onslaught. The arena is basically a large rectangle, with a street lining the
perimeter. There are numerous buildings on the edge of the arena that you can
climb up on using walkways. You might want to do a lap and check out the place
before entering the red ring in the middle.

All you have to worry about in this round is several waves of Crimson Lance.
You'll fight all the basic types (excluding Rocketeers), so anything is fair
game. At the end a few Badass Lance are thrown into the mix. Like Zach said,
this is merely a round to determine who's game and who's fodder.

Make sure to sell all the loot you picked up from last round and restock on
supplies. Once again, step in the center ring when you are ready to get the
ball rollin'. This round is similar to the last round, but there is a greater
overall quantity of enemies. There are more waves than the last, but still the
same general structure. Crimson Lance appear in large groups of six or seven
and another wave won't appear until they are almost all dead.

Hopefully this round should not be too hard on you, because if so you might
not make it to the end in one sitting. You have fought these types of bad guys
countless times, so you should know what strategies to implement for each one.
Pick up the loot after the round ends and then sell it for cash.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Once again, make sure you are fully prepared before stepping out there and
starting the round. The first portion of the round isn't too bad; it is still
the same as the last two. By now you should probably be familiarized with the
arena and have your own special spot that you like to fight from. I prefer the
eastern roof because it is big enough to maneuver around and gives you a view
of almost the entire arena.

After a while, a group of Lance Rocketeers and a Badass Rocketeer show up.
These guys are always annoying, so keep your eyes in the sky. When these guys
show up, you will want to stay on a roof or elevated platform; avoid the
streets at all costs!

The reason why is because after the Rocketeers show up, another wave of
Crimson Lance shows up, including the ultra rare Lance Royal Guards (remember,
they are like stronger versions of Lance Engineers). They aren't the reason to
find high ground, but sometime after the Royal Guards show up a Lancer will
spawn and begin driving around the arena, and getting hit by it is grounds for
instant death.

Personally, I prefer the eastern roof, because it also keeps you away from
Lancer fire. Regardless, stay on high ground and take down all the Royal
Guards that come your way (there should also be a pair of Badass Defenders
down on the ground).

When it's just you and the Crimson Lancer, employ a patient strategy. If you
have some sort of Corrosive weapon, then you are in luck. Even if you don't,
stay peeked out from the side of the balcony and never go down below: the
Lancer's Shock blasts can obliterate your shield in like one hit. Only take
shots at the Lancer as it passes by your location and eventually it should
fall.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

As expected, the difficulty continues to ramp up with this round. The round
starts off with several waves of Lance Rocketeers. While you're fighting them,
random Crimson Lance show up as well. A Lancer will eventually spawn but it is
hard to tell when (usually around the midpoint of the round), so since it's
difficult to dictate when the Crimson Lancer will appear, it is best that you
stay out of the roads entirely for this round.

Once the Lancer shows up, bombard it with grenades or Corrosive weapons. A
good tip is that the Lancer always travels in the same direction, so as soon
as it passes you on one of the long strips you can step out of hiding and pelt
it repeatedly until it rounds the corner.

Once the Lancer falls, it's back to Rocketeers and other Crimson Lance. The
final wave of enemies is a doozy: it consists of random Badass Lance and Lance
Royal Guards. At this point you may have ammo trouble, so try to switch
between different guns throughout the round to help conserve your ammunition
better, because these enemies don't tend to drop much ammo.

The Crimson Lance gives you everything including the kitchen sink, so in
general you should know what you're in for. There are a lot more Crimson
Lance, two extra waves of Rocketeers, more Badass Lance, and two Lancers in
total: the first one spawns around the midway mark, and the second one at the
very end.

By now, you should have a battle strategy set in stone. Try to prioritize your
enemies: take out Combat Medics first, because they can heal their friends.
Shock Troopers should probably be next in line because their attacks can fry
your shields and leave you for dead. After that it doesn't really matter.
Watch out for Badass Pyros/Shock Troopers/Chemical Troopers because their
backpacks explode when they die and can easily take you with them if you are
too close.

You should be fine, considering you made it through four rounds previously.

If you were concerned about the inactive gondolas during your first trip to
Road's End, then fear no more. First, you must find the lever that activates
the gondolas. Drive to the southwest cave system and continue on foot. Fight
your way through the mass of Skag Riders and proceed south. Continue south
until you reach a small shack on top of a hill and search the pile of junk
next to it for the [GONDOLA LEVER].

 - Find lever: Objective Complete

Dash back through the cavern to your vehicle and drive towards the gondola
station. Look for the glowing green outline of the lever and place the lever
in the correct spot.

 - Activate gondola: Objective Complete

Jump inside either gondola as it follows the track to the mountain village.
There is a Weapon and Ammo Vendor here if you need 'em. You will run into some
Crimson Lance in the town. Climb up the southeast building to reach the upper
level of the village. Continue executing more Crimson Lance and head across
the bridge when you come to it.

You should be able to see the communications dish from here. Kill the final
wave of enemies, then open the [RED CHEST] and ascend the stairs. Tinker with
the computer to place the bug and complete your mission.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

After completing the main story, talk to Marcus Kincaid in T-Bone Junction for
another job. Turns out that he purchased the Crimson Armory and has repaired
it, all while salvaging much of the loot from the explosion. He offers you a
"shopping spree", so long as you kill enough Crimson Lance.

Like other missions of this nature, this one involves killing a certain number
of Crimson Lance enemies, and should be picked up as soon as it becomes
available. The requirements aren't too strenuous, as all you have to do is
kill 10 Lance Pyros, 10 Lance Shock Troopers, 10 Lance Chemical Troopers, 10
Lance Rocketeers, and 5 Badass Lance.

The roadblocks are great Crimson Lance hotspots, and you will have to split up
to find each type. The roadblock at Crimson Tollway mainly contains Shock
Troopers, the south roadblock in the Ridgeway has a lot of Lance Pyros, and
the north roadblock Chemical Troopers.

Lance Rocketeers are tricky, since they are no longer found during the walking
portion of the Ridgeway. They can be found at the north roadblock and also at
the Crimson Tollway. As for Badass Lance, you can kill any type of Badass and
it'll count towards your goal. You should complete this if you do a run of all
three roadblocks. It is a bit of a hike, but Road's End contains a wide
variety of Crimson Lance at the area just before the Crimson Armory.

Then again, completing the Circle of Duty mission chain will earn you more
than enough Crimson Lance kills.

 - Kill Badass Lance: 5/5
 - Kill Pyro Lance: 10/10
 - Kill Chemical Lance: 10/10
 - Kill Shock Lance: 10/10
 - Kill Jetpack Lance: 10/10

This sidequest essentially allows you to replay the story mission "Loot
Larceny". Interestingly, General Knoxx is a respawning boss, so you will have
to fight him during this sidequest if you want the rewards.

The armory entrance is wide open, so run through after the fight and ride the
elevator to start the countdown.

 - Countdown started: Objective Complete

You have three minutes to grab as much treasure as you can before the mission
ends.

 - Steal loot: Objective Complete

Again, you will want to clear your inventory of all cheap White and Green
weapons, only saving things you do not want to discard. There is no way to die
or fail this mission, so go all out and use up every last second to ransack
the armory.

|____________________________________________________________________________|

Once again, you must go on a killing binge in order to please Marcus and get
another stab at the armory run. This time, Marcus Kincaid wants you to target
prisoners, midgets, and Skags. The best place to find all three enemy types is
the Sunken Sea.

Scour through Midgetville and other parts of Sunken Sea to find all your
midget and Skag needs, then head over to Lockdown Palace for your share of
prisoners. You will need to slay a lot of these enemies, so you will have to
travel between the areas in order to get them to respawn. You must kill 50
prisoners, 100 midgets, and 25 Skags. You can take care of the prisoners and
Skags in a single trip in their respective locations, but killing 100 midgets
will take longer.

 - Kill Prisoners: 50/50
 - Kill Midgets: 100/100
 - Kill Skags: 25/25

| There is an ancient tale in these parts of a massive beast that used to    |
| roam the sea. This is way back when there was water and everything. The    |
| tales have been passed down from generation to generation. His name was    |
| Crawmerax. They said he was invincible. Why am I tell you all of this?     |
| Since you blew up that Lance depot there have been tremors in the Deep     |
| Some say that Crawmerax is out there. That you reawakened him from         |
| hibernation. It would be one hell of a story if it were true, and whoever  |
| killed him would become a legend!                                          |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

The mission name doesn't lie. This. Is. The. Hardest. Mission. In. The. Game.
By far. Crawmerax is harder than all of the game's bosses put together, and
the only way you even stand a chance against him is if you are Level 60 at the
very least. Put this mission on hold when you get it, because you will need to
complete all the game's DLCs and Playthrough 2 of the main quest before you
even think about tackling this gargantuan monster.

The level cap for this game is Level 69, and it becomes surprisingly easy to
level up after Playthrough 2 of the main story and even easier after
Playthrough 2 of this DLC (all enemies scale up to your level, so you'll be
fighting Level 60+ enemies by the time you beat General Knoxx).

If you feel you are ready for the test (or if you are just a glutton for
punishment), head to the Deep Fathoms. Drive over the energy bridge leading to
Road's End, and stay in your vehicle and drive up the ramp to the west. Follow
it, then get out of your car and enter Crawmerax's Lair.

There is a Med Vendor, Ammo Vendor, and Weapons Vendor next to an elevator
shaft. The Ammo Vendor features new Orange Ammo SDUs that you might want to
purchase if you haven't already. Next, take the leap by riding the elevator
up to Crawmerax.

| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
| What I do know about Crawmerax is that he is always three levels higher    |
| than you (even at a maxed Level 69, the boss will be Level 72).            |
|                                                                            |
| I am going to defer a strategy for Crawmerax and first talk about the      |
| three available enemy types: Craw Maggots, Green Craw Worms, and Armored   |
| Craw Worms. Craw Maggots are legless worms that have a single eye like all |
| other Crab/Craw Worms which acts as their weak point. Green Craw Worms are |
| small, green versions of Larva Crab Worms. Armored Grab Worms look exactly |
| like Larva Crab Worms but are about three times as big.                    |
|                                                                            |
| There will always be enemies present with Crawmerax, and I believe that    |
| the constant stream of baddies is more dangerous and may grab your focus   |
| more than Crawmerax himself. There is a maximum of three on field at once, |
| so you'll never see more than three enemies with Crawmerax.                |
|                                                                            |
| They all have generally the same attacks, but Craw Maggots and Green Craw  |
| Worms have lunging attacks that are annoying and can create knockback.     |
| Each one has their own elemental weakness: Craw Maggots are weak against   |
| Shock, Green Craw Worms are weak against Fire, and Armored Craw Worms are  |
| weak against Corrosive. It is highly recommended that you have elemental   |
| weapons in your inventory (preferably one of each kind), since exploiting  |
| their weaknesses will take a huge load off.                                |
|                                                                            |
| These Craw Worms can also be a blessing, since there is always a steady    |
| supply of them and can lead to Second Winds. Whichever one you find the    |
| weakest, try to keep them around in case of emergency so you can whip out  |
| an elemental gun and blast them during your Crippled state. If you are not |
| yet Level 69, defeating these enemies will yield tons of XP and you may    |
| even gain a level during the battle, giving you a free health refill.      |
|                                                                            |
| As for Crawmerax himself, he is about 50 times the size of an Armored Craw |
| Worm and very intimidating. His plating is resistant to all damage, so you |
| must aim for his eye or glowing purple bulbs in order to deal damage. His  |
| six weak points include: two on his main pincer arms, two on his secondary |
| appendages, one on his back, and his eye. You must destroy all six weak    |
| points in order to slay Crawmerax the Invincible.                          |
|                                                                            |
| Like all bosses, Crawmerax has a melee attack, but this shouldn't be much  |
| of an issue since your goal is to stay as far away from him at all times.  |
| What you want to watch out for is his massive spray of purple goo (like    |
| the Craw Worms' projectile attack, but many more projectiles).             |
|                                                                            |
| However, the boss's most powerful and backbreaking attack is a shockwave   |
| that can automatically drain shields and nearly kill you. When you hear    |
| Crawmerax roar and burrow underground, quickly get behind one of the two   |
| rock structures to avoid an earthquake when he emerges. Now Crawmerax also |
| goes underground when summoning new minions, so just play it safe and stay |
| behind one of the two columns for the majority of the fight. Sirens have   |
| it easy because they can Phasewalk back and forth between the two.         |
|                                                                            |
| There are many different options to take during this fight depending on    |
| your class and weapon preference, but some general rules include:          |
|                                                                            |
| - Elemental weapons. Like I mentioned before, it is imperative that you    |
|   have some sort of elemental offense, whether it be guns or Skills. The   |
|   best option is to have a Corrosive, Fire, and Shock weapon to each use   |
|   against the Craw Worms. Personally I found it hard to find a good Shock  |
|   weapon, but Craw Maggots are the easiest out of the bunch and my lack of |
|   a Shock weapon wasn't the end of the world. But Fire and Corrosive are   |
|   a must.                                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| - Transfusion grenades. They are the most important Grenade Mod since most |
|   other grenade mods don't work well against the boss or the Craw Worms.   |
|   These will help keep your HP in the high numbers without having to use a |
|   Super Healing Kit.                                                       |
|                                                                            |
| - Ammo regeneration. The boss battle against Crawmerax is as long as it is |
|   hard, and you cannot worry about ammo rationing. The Craw Worms can be a |
|   source for ammo restoration, but it is often too little, too late.       |
|   Whether it be a specific gun or a Class Mod, ammo regeneration is very   |
|   important, especially if you are fighting Crawmerax by yourself.         |
|                                                                            |
| - Health regeneration. You cannot rely on Healing Kits for this fight. You |
|   simply cannot. You must have some form of health regeneration, whether   |
|   it be from your Shield or Skills. If the only form of healing you have   |
|   Super Healing Kits, then you're most likely screwed.                     |
|                                                                            |
| - Super Healing Kits. If you are fighting Crawmerax the Invincible, that   |
|   likely means you have beaten the game multiple times and should have an  |
|   inventory with around 60 slots. There is no need for open slots, so if   |
|   you need to buy 55+ Super Healing Kits, so be it. If the boss fight ends |
|   and you need space for the loot, then drop the healing kits. They are a  |
|   good backup if anything, but if you find yourself relying on them then   |
|   you are underprepared for this fight.                                    |
|                                                                            |
| Since Crawmerax's weak points are all on his back (either on his back or   |
| on the underside of his limbs, facing him from the front is pretty much    |
| useless. You need to spend the majority of time running away from him so   |
| that you can flank him and begin hitting the weak points. Since Crawmerax  |
| is constantly moving and there are Craw Worms to worry about, I prefer     |
| automatic weapons with a large spray rather than a slow, one-shot Sniper   |
| Rifle or similar gun.                                                      |
|                                                                            |
| Again, you never want Crawmerax to be anywhere near you. If you aren't on  |
| the opposite side of the arena from the boss, then change that. He has     |
| incredible reach and melee attacks can kill you in two hits. Keeping your  |
| distance also gives you opportunities on the weak point on his back, which |
| is arguably the hardest one to destroy.                                    |
|                                                                            |
| This fight takes a lot of practice and a lot of retries (You. Will. Die.), |
| and overall I think a player will know when they are able to beat him and  |
| whether or not they must retreat and train. Here are some options if you   |
| just aren't cutting it:                                                    |
|                                                                            |
| - Level up. Well, duh. If you aren't at least Level 61, then you should    |
|   not be in this position. Like I said, killing the Craw Worms grants a    |
|   lot of XP and you can actually level up a couple times during the fight, |
|   which serves as an automatic health restoration. You don't have to be    |
|   Level 69, but Level 65-66 is respectable.                                |
|                                                                            |
| - Get better equipment. Chests in this game respawn every time you reload  |
|   a save file. A good idea is to go on a Red Chest run, where you cover    |
|   several areas and loot all the Red Chests, then exit and reboot your     |
|   game in order to find top-notch guns. The post-game armory runs are also |
|   great for finding legendary equipment.                                   |
|                                                                            |
| - Respec. Maybe it's not your level or equipment, but your Skills. I feel  |
|   like the option to respec is lost on many players, but for a small fee   |
|   you can accumulate all your spent Skill Points. If one Skill Tree isn't  |
|   cutting it, try another one. Even at such a high level, there is still   |
|   room for adjustments in the three Skill Trees.                           |
|                                                                            |
| - Find some friends. Crawmerax is very hard, but the magnitude of fighting |
|   him by yourself is unbelievable. I have beaten the game four times with  |
|   all four character classes, but I have only managed to defeat Crawmerax  |
|   once by myself (with Lilith, so I apologize if this boss strategy or the |
|   guide in general is geared towards Lilith users). Either by split screen |
|   co-op or via Xbox Live, having one, two, or three competent players is   |
|   always going to help in the long run.                                    |
|____________________________________________________________________________|

 - Kill Crawmerax: Objective Complete
 - TURN IN!

Congratulations! With Crawmerax the Invincible no more, all his Craw Worm

drops around 50 pieces of equipment, most of it purple and orange, so go wild.
You will unlock the "Vincible" Achievement for defeating Crawmerax.

Hit the switch on the southern pillar to teleport back to the bottom, and turn
in the mission at the T-Bone Junction bounty board (if this is your final
mission in the DLC, then you also get the "Completionist" Achievement).

And Crawmerax does respawn, for those wondering!

'============================================================================'

.---------------.
| Crimson Lance |____________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

You are used to the Crimson Lance from the main game, so running into Lance
Infantry, Lance Engineers, and Lance Defenders should not come as a shock to
you. However, there are a lot more rankings revealed in this DLC.

.------------.
| Lance Pyro |
'------------'
There are three types of elemental Crimson Lance. Lance Pyros are Fire-based,
wear red Fire-resistant armor, and attack you with Incendiary weapons. They
can summon Scorpio Turrets that also uses Fire attacks. They are about as
strong as a Lance Engineer.

 - Badass Pyros wear a big flame backpack on their back and are much larger
   than their counterparts. If you specifically shoot at the backpack on their
   back, eventually it'll explode and kill him.


.---------------------.
| Lance Shock Trooper |
'---------------------'
There are three types of elemental Crimson Lance. Lance Shock Troopers are
Shock-based, wear blue Shock-resistant armor, and attack you with Shock
weapons. They can summon Scorpio Turrets that also uses Shock attacks. They
are about as strong as a Lance Engineer.

 - Badass Shock Troopers wear big electrical generators on their back and are
   much larger than their counterparts. If you specifically shoot at the
   generators on their back, eventually it'll explode and kill him.


.------------------------.
| Lance Chemical Trooper |
'------------------------'
There are three types of elemental Crimson Lance. Lance Chemical Troopers are
Corrosive-based, wear green Corrosive-resistant armor, and attack you with
Corrosive weapons. They can summon Scorpio Turrets that also uses Corrosive
attacks. They are about as strong as a Lance Engineer.

 - Badass Chemical Troopers wear big acid tanks on their back and are much
   larger than their counterparts. If you specifically shoot at the tanks on
   their back, eventually it'll explode and kill him.

.--------------------.
| Lance Combat Medic |
'--------------------'
The Lance Combat Medics aren't born fighters; rather they are inserted into
the lineup in order to heal their comrades. The Combat Medics still attack you
mainly with Combat Rifles, but they aren't as physically imposing as other
Crimson Lance member.

However, Combat Medics should be first on your kill list when in a fight. They
can deploy Scorpio Turrets that use Transfusion technology to heal fellow
Crimson Lance soldiers. Look for their pearly white armor and eliminate them
at the start of the battle.

.-----------------.
| Lance Rocketeer |
'-----------------'
Lance Rocketeers are very nimble and wear jetpacks that allow them to fly
through the air. They must wear light armor in order to maneuver through the
air, meaning that they are more fragile than other Crimson Lance. However,
Rocketeers are harder to hit because they are fast and hard to track when
high above you.

 - Badass Rocketeers wear red armor instead of the standard Lance Infantry
   armor, and always carry Rocket Launchers. They are bit harder to bring
   down than a Rocketeer, but still not that powerful.

.----------------.
| Lance Assassin |
'----------------'
You will run into Lance Assassins during the Omega Assassin boss fights. Lance
Assassins are duel-wielding katana babes with skin tight outfits; they
sacrifice durability for mobility. Lance Assassins are incredibly graceful and
can perform all sorts of acrobatic maneuvers, so trying to target one can be a
pain. The best way to defeat one is with close-range weaponry or even melee
attacks since they always rush you and attack with their swords. They are
painfully weak, but hard to actually hit.

.------------.
| Devastator |
'------------'
The Devastator is a sort of last resort insurance policy, as you only fight a
handful of them in the game. It is a gigantic Crimson Lance mech with Shotgun
arms that pack quite a punch. As long as you stay the hell back, it won't be
able to deal that much damage to you. Like all Crimson Lance, use Corrosive
guns for the best possible result and aim at its head/cockpit for critical
hits.

 - Badass Devastators are larger and have a slick new coat of paint. They
   have also replaced their Shotgun arms with Rocket Launcher arms, so they
   are much more dangerous at long range.


.---------.
| Midgets |__________________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Again, the actual enemy shouldn't surprise you, but this DLC introduces new
midget types that you can encounter.

.----------------.
| Midget Rustler |
'----------------'
Midget Rustlers are incredibly fast midgets that carry makeshift weapons and
use melee attacks. They are the weakest of the new midget team and wear light
armor on their head and shoulders.

.---------------.
| Midget Raider |
'---------------'
Midget Raiders are slightly more powerful than Rustlers, and are about the
same (stat wise) as Mutant Midget Psycho. Midget Raiders also attack with
random tools and are easily distinguished by their goggled face and Psycho
mask hanging above their forehead.

.----------------.
| Midget Ravager | 
'----------------'
Midget Ravagers are the most annoying and dangerous midget enemy in the game.
These guys wear spiked helmets and choose dynamite instead of guns or melee
weapons. Ravagers will run around and throw bundles of TNT at you, blowing
things up and generally making your day more unpleasant. They always drop
their dynamite when killed, so avoid their dead bodies. Ravagers can sometimes
go overboard with the explosives and can end up hurting other enemies for you.

.---------------.
| Badass Midget |
'---------------'
Badass Midgets are their own class of midget and don't share resemblances with
any other midget type. Badass Midgets are covered head to toe in thick black
armor and wear elegant helmets with long horns. Their armor is tough to pierce
but you can knock off their helmets with enough headshots. Most Badass Midgets
carry Combat Rifles.


.--------------.
| Loot Midgets |_____________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Loot Midgets technically are not midgets (based on the fact that they don't
count towards the midget total in "Local Trouble") and only appear in a few
select locations. These guys hide in lootable objects and only appear if you
open it. Killing all five types of Loot Midgets unlocks the "Sneaky Little
Buggers" Achievement.

.------------.
| Mini Steve |
'------------'
Mini Steve looks like a midget Bandit Raider and carries a gun (usually an
SMG). Mini Steve hides inside Red Chests. You can find him in the Took pump
bandit camp in the Sunken Sea, in the bandit camp at the Deep Fathoms, and
in the Lockdown Palace, near the large magnet.

.----------------.
| Dumpster Diver |
'----------------'
Dumpster Diver looks like a regular Mutant Midget Psycho, but carries a rusty
pipe and wears striped pants similar to the prisoners. You only find one of
them in the entire game. Dumpster Diver is located in Motorhead's garage at
Abomination Way, inside the dumpster in the corner.

.---------------.
| Meat Popsicle |
'---------------'
Meat Popsicle is a Mutant Midget Psycho that carries a frozen drumstick as a
weapon. He is found hiding inside refrigerators. You can find Meat Popsicle in
the Lilith shrine at T-Bone Junction (though he's Level 61), in Midgetville
near the staircase leading up to the highway, and in the Lockdown Palace, in a
side room past the two vendors.

.-------------------.
| Truxican Wrestler |
'-------------------'
This guy looks pretty cool. Truxican Wrestler is decked out in colorful
luchador gear and has a big boxing glove on one hand. He hides inside lockers.
You can find Truxican Wrestler in two spots in Lockdown Palace: in the first
group of lockers near the main entrance and in the room just past the elevator
in the laundry room.

.----------------.
| Crimson Shorty |
'----------------'
Crimson Shorty is a Loot Midget wearing Crimson Lance armor and fancies
himself a Crimson Lance Chest. Like Dumpster Diver, there is only one Crimson
Shorty in the game. To find him, you must open the last Crimson Lance Chest
in Road's End, near the entrance to the Crimson Armory.


.-------------.
| Skag Riders |______________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

Skag Riders are two enemies in one. You encounter these beasts in the Sunken
Sea and Road's End, usually in cavernous areas with huge Skag dens etched out
of the side. Simply put, Skag Riders consist of a midget riding a Skag. The
enemies vary, but that's the gist of these enemies. You must kill both; the
other one will continue with their partner down.

.--------------.
| Skag Rustler |
'--------------'
The weakest of the bunch, a Skag Rustler is a Midget Rustler riding a Skag
Whelp. They are the smallest out of the bunch, but also the fastest. They can
easily slip past your sights and begin nibbling at your ankles.

.-------------.
| Skag Raider |
'-------------'
Skag Raiders consist of a Midget Raider riding an Adult Skag. They are
probably the most common out of the bunch, but both parties are average in
terms of a threat.

.--------------.
| Skag Ravager |
'--------------'
These are definitely ones that you don't want to see, mainly due to the Midget
Ravager. The Elder Skag is still a problem, but one thing worse than a Midget
Ravager is a Midget Ravager running around in circles while chucking dynamite
at you. One good tactic is to kill the Midget Ravager, and the dropped TNT
will likely destroy the Elder Skag.

.-------------------.
| Badass Skag Rider |
'-------------------'
The Badass Skag Rider is a Badass Midget riding on top of a Badass Fire Alpha.
While both the midget and the Skag are formidable opponents, as a whole they
are sluggish and easy to target due to their size and the Badass Fire Alpha's
flaming mane.

.---------------.
| Skag Rapparee |
'---------------'
Without a doubt the worst of the bunch, but fortunately they are uncommon. A
Skag Rapparee is an Alpha Skag driven by three midgets: a Midget Rustler, a
Midget Raider, and a Badass Midget. Three for the price of one! It is hard to
snipe the midgets off of the roaming Skag, so you might want to take the mount
out first.


.------------.
| Craw Worms |_______________________________________________________________
|____________________________________________________________________________|

You fought Larva Crab Worms in the main game, but now you can encounter three
similar types during the battle against Crawmerax. Since this is the only
place where you can find them, they all have obscenely high levels like their
master. Even though they have a different name than the Crab Worms, most of
the Craw Worms have the same appearance and mannerisms (aim for the eye!).

.-------------.
| Craw Maggot |
'-------------'
Craw Maggots are the odd one out, since they look more like worms than crabs
or crawfish. Craw Maggots will stick their head out of the sand and either
spit projectiles at you or bite you. Craw Maggots can also leap out of the air
and knock into you, sending you flying backwards. Craw Maggots are resistant
to Corrosive and deathly weak against Shock attacks.

.-----------------.
| Green Craw Worm |
'-----------------'
These guys are basically a palette swap of the Larva Crab Worms, but are much
larger and obviously have a green coloration. They mainly attack by spewing
Corrosive projectiles at you, but also have a pincer attack and can sometimes
jump at you like Craw Maggots. They are resistant to Corrosive, but weak
against Fire/Incendiary attacks.

.-------------------.
| Armored Craw Worm |
'-------------------'
The Armored Craw Worm is most similar to the Larva Crab Worms in the main
game; although larger, they are also purple and just as slow. The Armored Craw
Worm shoots purple projectiles at you and don't use the charge/jump attack
like the Green Craw Worm. Armored Craw Worms are resistant to Shock but really
weak against Corrosive damage.

.---------.
| Drifter |
'---------'
These eerie creatures resemble gigantic daddy long legs; their body is
minuscule compared to their lanky legs, and you can often spot them from a
mile away. Drifters live in the desert and are found in the Sunken Sea and
Road's End. They attack mainly by spewing Corrosive globs at you, but can also
stab at you with their front legs and use a jumping slam. Even though their
weak point is their eyes and yellow bulb on their back, you are best off
using vehicles (preferably Lancers) to kill Drifters.


.-----------.
| Cheta Paw |
'-----------'
The bandits have upgraded from their modified Runners (Out Riders) and the
guys in the Parched Fathoms use hacked Monsters. These Monsters, called Cheta
Paws, spawn in the Deep Fathoms and the Sunken Sea. Like a regular Monster,
Cheta Paws are slower than Runners but much more durable. They attack using
non-homing rockets, so I guess Cheta Paws aren't as good as the real thing.

| BOSS: Vulcana |____________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: N/A             Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| Now that you are a wanted man, the Atlas Corporation will periodically     |
| send mercenaries to hunt you down. Vulcana's arrival is the first instance |
| of that. Vulcana usually stands on the sidelines and lets the four Lance   |
| Assassins take a stab at you first. Lance Assassins duel-wield katanas and |
| are incredibly nimble and elusive. They are essentially ninjas. However,   |
| Lance Assassins have pitifully low health and can be killed in one or two  |
| critical hits.                                                             |
|                                                                            |
| Vulcana is taller than regular Lance Assassins and has more powerful armor |
| than her underlings, except she is helmet-less. She has a number of melee  |
| attacks and will either kick you with her super stiletto boots or go for a |
| slice and dice approach. The boss can also fire rockets at you.            |
|                                                                            |
| It's hard to get a clean shot off with the boss moving around as much as   |
| she does. It is more difficult to fight this battle with a Combat Rifle or |
| Sniper Rifle, but you do have a good opportunity when Vulcana stops to     |
| fire a missile at you. If you prefer close-range combat with Shotguns,     |
| then you should be fine here. Aim for her head, deplete her shield, then   |
| don't let up.                                                              |

| BOSS: Hera |_______________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: N/A             Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |
| access the DLC anywhere from being Level 10 to Level 50. All I can say is  |
| that the boss will be at or around the same level as your own character.   |
|                                                                            |
| If you look into the sky as you get closer to Moxxi's Red Light, you can   |
| actually make out the dropship as it careens into the highway. Several     |
| Lance Assassins appear and begin attacking. Again, they are very fast but  |
| also incredibly weak. You can melee one as she gets close to you to stun   |
| her, then finish the job. There are about five or six in total.            |
|                                                                            |
| Next, direct your attention to Hera. Unlike Vulcana, she wears a helmet so |
| you won't deal quite as much damage with headshots. The boss rarely uses   |
| long-range attacks such as missiles, so this battle resembles one against  |
| a regular Lance Assassin. Also remember that Crimson Lance enemies drop    |
| Energy Cores if you picked up the "Core Collector" sidequest, so the cores |
| dropped by the Lance Assassins should help against Hera.                   |

| BOSS: Minerva |____________________________________________________________
|                                                                            |
| Level: N/A             Resist: None                                        |
|                                                                            |
| Strategy:                                                                  |
| Again, there is no way to accurately predict a boss's level when you can   |

| Just like before, a group of Lance Assassins will attack before the Omega  |
| Assassin appears. Defeat the enemies to trigger Minerva's arrival. Minerva |
| looks more like Vulcana than Hera, since she does not wear a helmet. She   |
| also has bright yellow armor and therefore easy to spot among the gray and |
| red scenery.                                                               |
|                                                                            |
| The boss attacks by using regular melee attacks seen in the other two boss |
| fights against the Omega Assassins. She has no long-range attacks and only |
| uses kicks and sword slashes. The problem with this fight is that Minerva  |
| can propel you into the air with her kicks, which can potentially lead to  |
| you getting knocked off the map and dying. Try to stand in one of the      |
| staircases to prevent getting kicked around.                               |
