Swallowed Whole is an optional mission in Borderlands 2.

Scooter has assigned the Vault Hunters the task of killing Shorty, a midget who has defaced one of Scooter's Catch-A-Ride systems. Unfortunately, Shorty has been eaten alive by Sinkhole, a powerful stalker who resides in The Fridge.




Sinkhole initially appears at a point marked by a waypoint, invisible save for a blue glow emanating through from its stomach. It quickly retreats when discovered, forcing a hunt through Stalker Hollow and a number of lesser stalkers to catch up.

When Sinkhole is finally tracked, the blue glow from its belly presents a convenient beacon as to its location, even when cloaked. Sinkhole must be killed in order to release Shorty. There is also an optional objective which is completed by klling Sinkhole with a shock weapon.

Once released, Shorty shows no hesitation in trying to kill his rescuer. He leaps at his opponent, with buzz axe in hand, and attempts to slash his victim until killed.



  • Sinkhole must retreat into Stalker Hollow before being killed, or the mission may glitch and remain incomplete. There are rare instances of being able to kill it before this time - the easiest being use of Zer0's Deception skill, a melee boosting weapon, and Execute.
