After accepting the mission, the path to Frostburn Canyon will be highlighted. Once in Frostburn Canyon, the objective is to follow seven signs (Psychos pinned to a post pointing in a certain direction) until arriving at the Lair of the Firehawk. There, the Vault Hunters meet Lilith, one of the original Vault Hunters from Borderlands.

The path with the seven signs winds through the Frostburn Canyon map, first traveling through some bandit-infested trails and a large camp with lots of burning psychos and the regular assortment of other bandit types. The path continues through a series of caves and trails filled with bandits and spiderants.

Not all seven signs need to be followed. If a player takes the route opposite to the first objective when arriving in Frostburn Canyon and instead heads through the areas with the spiderants, the third sign will be reached without having seen the first two. The objectives to find the first second and third signs will all simultaneously complete.

After the sixth sign there will be one badass psycho followed by another that come out of the cave. In that final stretch of cave a number of pipes protruding from the walls and ceilings prove to be booby traps that shoot jets of flame. These can be avoided by stepping around the fringe of the flame jet, or by waiting for the flame to subside.

Upon arrival at the Firehawk's Lair, it becomes apparent that Lilith is the Firehawk. She then immediately comes under attack from bandits and requests assistance fighting off several waves of bandits, consisting of psychos, crazed marauders and badass psychos. The bandits pour in from the adjoining platforms and attempt to converge on the central platform while Lilith uses her phase blasts to combat them. Lilith's phase blasts do not do much damage, though they do distract the bandits.

Following the fight, Lilith attempts to teleport the Vault Hunters to Bloodshot Stronghold, but only manages a short range jump within her lair, at which point she changes her plan and returns to Sanctuary.


"Lilith, alias "the Firehawk," has informed you that Roland was kidnapped by the same clan of bandits that invaded her lair. You'll have to rescue him."

  • The two bruisers that appear in Lilith's hideout right before she is introduced can be damaged, but not killed. There have been reports that they can be killed in rare circumstances, although this would appear to be an unintended event - a bug.
