Introduction:

Welcome to Borderlands 2 Captain Lilith and the fight for sanctuary DLC Trophy Guide!

Over 6 years ago Borderlands 2 was released, we amazingly get a new chapter to the story, with some new shiny trophies! Grab your loot, Vault Hunter. We’ve got some trophies to hunt and bandits to kill.

Roadmap:

Stage 1: Complete the Story Missions (While Getting the Missable Trophy)

Play through the story of the DLC and collect the missable Bronze “Chocolate Chip Confirmed” trophy.

You’ll be earning these trophies:

Bronze Chocolate Chip Confirmed (Missable)
Bronze Anyway, Here’s “Firewall” (Missable)
Silver 3 or Bust

Play through the story of the DLC and collect the missable Bronze Chocolate Chip Confirmed trophy.

In this stage, you’ll focus on completing the DLC’s Main Story missions, which are (in order):

  1. The Dawn of New Pandora
  2. Spore Chores
  3. Winging It
  4. A Hard Place
  5. Shooting The Moon (Bronze Chocolate Chip Confirmed) – Missable
  6. The Cost of Progress
  7. Paradise Found (Silver 3 or Bust)

You’ll also need to let Tiny Tina arm the Moonshot Cannon during the fifth mission.

Stage 2: Side-Mission Related Trophies

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:

Bronze Decrypted!
Gold Spicy Boy

During this stage, you’ll complete 2 different Side-Missions, which are:

  1. Claptocurrency (Bronze Decrypted!) – Missable
  2. A Most Cacophonous Lure (Gold Spicy Boy)

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.

Stage 3: Grinding for Effervescent-Quality Gear (or Rainbow Gear)

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:

Bronze Painbow Connection

In this final stage, you’ll focus on repeating the last Boss fights, which are:

  1. Haderax the Invincible (located in Writhing Deep)
  2. Uranus (located on Helios Fallen)
  3. Dr. Cassius (located on Mt. Scarab Research Center)

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).

Trophies:

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:

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:

SPOILER:

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 Square 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.

Spicy BoyGold
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 Bronze Painbow Connection” trophy.

Decrypted!
Defeat the Dark Web.

MISSABLE:

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 R3.

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.

Painbow Connection
Equip effervescent-quality gear in all slots (except class mod).

This trophy is similar to the Bronze 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.

Item Description Image
Peak Opener
(Assault Rifle)
This can be found in one of the chests after killing Haderax. The chests found on top of the rocks in this boss arena have a good chance of containing this weapon which is an assault rifle. Getting 4 of these to fill up the weapon slots is enough to count towards the trophy, but it will require killing the raid boss multiple times. acf206.jpg
Hard Carry
(Relic)
This can rarely be found in one of the chests after killing Haderax. The chests found on top of the rocks in this boss arena have a small chance of containing this Relic which is an assault rifle so it will require killing the raid boss multiple times. ab1066.jpg
World Burn
(Rocket Launcher)
This weapon is dropped by Lt. Bolson in Dahl Abandon which can be located by going into an arena found on the Northern side of the map. This Mini-Boss can only be found after completing the DLC’s Story Missions. c92131.jpg
Toothpick
(Assault Rifle)
This can be obtained by killing Sandworm Queens (“The hunt is Vaughn” Sidequest). 0a8027.jpg
Nirvana
(SMG)
A lot of enemies have a very small chance to drop this weapon throughout the DLC. Nirvana can be dropped from any suitable loot source but the best place to look for this weapon is in Dahl Abandon in the caves in the middle of the area.

Infection Cleaner
(SMG)
Most of the common enemies found in this DLC have a small chance to drop this weapon. The New Pandora Soldiers have a slightly higher chance of dropping it. 55f8b5.jpg
Unicornsplosion
(Shotgun)
This weapon is obtained by feeding Butt Stallion while wielding the Mysterious Amulet found in the previous DLC (Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep). More information on how to obtain the Mysterious Amulet is found on this trophy’s guide Bronze Hmmmmm. 51031a.jpg
Hot Mama
(Sniper)
This weapon is available only after completing the “BFFFs” side-quest from Brick in the Backburner. Head to Mt. Scarab Research Center, and make your way up to where you will encounter a Mini-Boss named “Lt.Hoffman”. Kill him and he might drop this weapon. 73f4a1.jpg
Antifection
(Grenade Mod)
10% chance drop from “Dr. Cassius” Boss in “The Cost of Progress”. The best way to farm this is to interact with the 1-Way Fast-Travel Station located in Mt. Scarab Research Center, as it makes it easier to save and quit out to fight Dr. Cassius repeatedly. This boss has a chance of dropping the grenade mod ‘Antifection’ but because it will drop within all of the loot, make sure to check the whole arena before quitting out and you should get one of these eventually. 439cd1.jpg
Retainer
(Shield)
A lot of enemies have a very small chance to drop this shield throughout the DLC, but the best spot to get it is to kill Sandworms (“The hunt is Vaughn” Sidequest) or in The Burrows. 9403e7.jpg
The Electric Chair
(Grenade Mod)
10% chance drop on normal mode, 20% drop chance on TVHM or higher, from “The Arsenal” Boss in “Shooting the Moon”. The best way to farm this is to interact with the 1-Way Fast-Travel Station located in Helios Fallen, as it makes it easier to save and quit out to fight Uranus repeatedly. This boss has a chance of dropping the grenade mod ‘The Electric Chair’ but because it will drop within all of the loot, make sure to check the whole arena before quitting out and you should get one of these eventually. c1bdf8.jpg
Mouthwash
(Relic)
Mission reward item from Lilith when you turn in the “Paradise Found” Story mission. After turning in the final mission, you will be rewarded with a new effervescent relic called ‘Mouthwash’. However, if you sold or discarded this item, you will have to farm another one from Haderax. f9986f.jpg
Easy Mode
(Shield)
100% chance to come from one of the 4 Dahl Chest after killing Haderax The Invincible. This is similar to the weapons, however, the difference here is that you only need one of them, and a shield seems to have a near 100% drop rate in one of these chests after killing Haderax called ‘Easy Mode’. It has a very high chance of appearing, but if you miss out on it or don’t get one you can try again when going for the weapons. 563678.jpg
Random Drops Other than the spots listed above, a lot of enemies have a very small chance to drop an ‘effervescent’ item or weapon throughout the DLC, so you may find at least one of these items before finishing the DLC. Take note of what these new items look like on the ground, the beam will be slightly longer than other weapons and it will be Rainbow-colored. b2ce40.jpg
Though the Grenade mod, Relic, and Shield can be farmed from specific Boss/Mini-Bosses. Rainbow Guns mostly don’t have specific drop rates or enemies to farm. So once you have one, you can use an in-game exploit to duplicate the gun.
