During this stage, you’ll complete 2 different Side-Missions, which are:
- Claptocurrency ( Decrypted!) – Missable

The first mission is very short and easy. The second one is rather difficult (depending on character level and if you’re on Ultra Vault Hunter Mode or not). More info for each trophy is located in their specific guides.

By beating these bosses you’ll obtain the 7 Effervescent-Quality Gear needed for the trophy (4 Weapons, 1 Grenade Mod, 1 Shield and 1 Relic).
|Anyway, Here’s “Firewall”
Activate the Backburner’s firewall.
Once you start the DLC you’ll enter a cutscene. During the cutscene, Lilith and the rest of the crimson raiders are discussing what they’ll do with the vault key found at the end of the Main Story of Borderlands 2. Then out of nowhere, Sanctuary gets attacked by “Hector’s New Pandora Army” You’ll have to fight them off. After all the enemies are defeated Lilith will teleport you out of Sanctuary to a new location called “Backburner”
In Backburner, you’ll fight through 3 waves of infected enemies in order to find a new camp. Once you find the camp you’ll meet Vaughn (The same Vaughn from Tales from the Borderlands) He explains to you that you must put up the firewall by activating it. There are 3 points to activate. All points will be marked on your map and are very easy to find. Once you activate all 3 points, you’ll have to return to Vaughn who will get attacked by some of the infected. Fight them off and then turn in the mission for your trophy.
|Chocolate Chip Confirmed
Allow Tiny Tina to arm the moonshot cannon.
Missable Warning: This is an optional objective and can be missed.
During the mission “Shooting the Moon” Tiny Tina asks you to pick up some items to build a missile to do the following:
blow up the doors to the Dahl Mines. In order for you to reach the scientist “Cassius” who has an antidote for the poisonous gas infecting Pandora.
When the missile is ready to be armed Tiny Tina will say “You can now ARM THE MISSILE, or you could let me do it, it’s up to you, you know do what you want.” At this point, you’ll have an optional objective “let Tiny Tina arm the missile” which is what will unlock the trophy. Instead of interacting with the launch button, simply talk to Tiny Tina with and She’ll say “Really you’ll let me do it? I thought you were a raisin but you’re a chocolate chip” the trophy will pop in the middle of her sentence.
Defeat Haderax the Invincible.
Once you finish the main story of the Captain Lilith DLC You’ll find Sir Hammerlock next to Moxxi’s new bar. He will give you the side quest “A Most Cacophonous Lure”
You’ll have to travel to “The Burrows” and then to the “Writhing Deep” There you will take an elevator to an area where you’ll have to deposit 20 Eridium. Then Press the button in the middle of the table and go back to the elevator. You’ll drop down and then be able to fight “Haderax The Invincible”. Haderax is a Giant Sandworm. On normal mode he will be level 40, So use your best gear and avoid his attacks. If you are level 50 or above and playing on normal mode. You won’t have to worry about dying to Haderax as you should out level him and have the sufficient gear to survive and kill him quickly. The best strategy to kill this boss is to aim for his weak point which is on the back of his head. This boss also regenerates health very quickly when it goes inside the walls/under the ground. Shooting the white spot on the top of its head then shooting inside the mouth when it opens stops its healing.
When Haderax is defeated. 4 Dahl Loot Chests will spawn on the rocks in the center of the arena. In one of these chests, there will be a Rainbow Rarity Shield called “Easy Mode” This is needed for the Painbow Connection” trophy.
Defeat the Dark Web.
Missable Warning: This is an optional objective and can be missed as the boss doesn’t respawn when the quest is complete.
After the mission “Shooting the Moon” is completed near the Dahl Mine. On your map, you can find a side quest from Claptrap called “Claptocurrency” In this mission Claptrap will send you to find and mine some Crystals called “BECHO Wafers” They are crystals that glow Green and are very easy to spot in the dark mines. You can mine them by pressing .
While mining, you will get an optional objective to “Destroy the Dark Web” which is a literal creature called “The Dark Web” at the top of this area that you will need to kill. This creature is a Spider-Ant, about the size of a Spider-Ant King, but colored completely black. You need to kill this creature to unlock the trophy, otherwise, it will make this trophy missable.
Equip effervescent-quality gear in all slots (except class mod).
This trophy is similar to the Decked Out in the base game. You have to fill every slot in your character loadout with the gear of a specific Rarity (excluding the class mod for this trophy). In this case, it’s the newly introduced ‘effervescent’ quality items added in with this DLC pack. These items have a distinct Rainbow color and are hard to miss, but they are also hard to find. However, there is some good news, there are some consistent spots that can help to reduce the time this trophy will take. Here are the easiest spots to find some of these items.
Duplication glitch 1 (2 Players, 1 Controler, Online game)
- Player 1 (Host) and Player 2 (Friend) find a fast travel station, to save all current progress. Player 1 then gives Player 2 all items that they want to duplicate.
