Doctor's Orders is an optional mission in Borderlands 2 given by Tannis in Sanctuary.



"Patricia Tannis needs you to collect some information on Slag experimentation. It'll get kinda dark, to be completely honest with you."
  • Collect Slag experiment notes: 0/4


The first ECHO recorder is located between the Preserve Dockyard and Specimen Maintenance in the open room between the first skag enclosure and the field beyond. This is lying loose and is easily collected on the way through.

Another ECHO recording is hidden in a storage unit behind the Experimentation Greeter just inside the entrance to the Observation Wing.

The last ECHO recorder is in the observation wing inside a stalker cage.


"Tannis has all the information she needs on slag experimentation. One can only hope that she'll use the information for non-horrifying purposes."

Turn In: Tannis

ECHO Transcription

Echo 1

Handsome Jack: "Okie-dokie, Sammy, let's say we start that test?"
Doctor Samuels: "It's 'Doctor Samuels'. The test subject is still conscious. You can't expect me to--"
Handsome Jack: "Sorry baby. I can't hear you over the sound of people not being injected with Eridium right now. This Vault Key didn't make Eridium come outta the ground for nothing right? So, we've got it - might as well do some good with it! You're not eager to be on the other side of that glass, are you sweetheart?"
Doctor Samuels: "...Commencing Eridium mutation test on subject number two. Subject: Erik Franks."

Handsome Jack: "What's the holdup, Sammy?"
Doctor Samuels: "Don't call me -- This subject is... unsuitable for testing. His husband has the Shivers. He could have transmitted--"
Handsome Jack: "Hey, remember that wife of yours? And how you wanted to see her, like, ever again?"
Doctor Samuels: "You can't --"
Handsome Jack: "Still don't hear screaming..."
Male Test Subject: "AHHHH! AHHHH!"
