- Head to hideout
- Get buzzed in
- Deliver pizza
Finding the Splinter Group
The first step in the mission is to retrieve the pizza from Moxxi's Bar. Once obtained, the pizza is then taken to Bloodshot Stronghold. After two rooms is a room with two bridges and a short drop down into some water channels around the edges. One of these channels meets with a sewer tunnel leading away from the chamber, and this opens out into several rooms populated with Rats. The walk through the sewers ends at an intercom, which can be activated to get buzzed in. The pizza is then left on a table in the centre of a room, and once it is placed the Splinter Group will spawn.
The Splinter group will initially arrive one by one and will attempt to flee if hurt by approximately 50% of their maximum health. It is possible to kill the individual rats before they are able to leave. Players attempting the challenge Cut 'Em No Slack may wish to avoid dealing too much damage too quickly to avoid killing the group out of order.
After advancing beyond the room that the Splinter Group is fought in players will find various levers and switches in addition to a panel with 5 red lights. There are four switches: a pipe valve, a ground lever, a wall lever and a television. Each switch changes the light from red to green and the lights changed alternates with each use, see below:
|Switch||1st use||2nd use||3rd use||4th Use|
There are discrepancies between reports on how to summon Flinter. Different settings might be possible between consoles or individual games.
One easy way (done in any order ):
- Ground Lever (once)
- Wall Switch (once)
- Television (twice)
Once the five lights are green, Flinter will spawn.
- Text on card of Moxxi's Pizza: A pizza topped with marshmallows, anchovies, and innuendo.
- The Splinter Group can drop a legendary grenade mod, the Storm Front.
- This mission is a reference to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
- Upon entering the mission area, Tannis tells the player 'not to cut them any slack' - a reference to the theme song of the original animated series ("When the evil Shredder attacks / These ninja boys don't cut him no slack").
