Boundary laser (near Rakkinishu)

The boundary laser by the bandit camp, where Rakkinishu hunts, contains two Skag Piles and two bins. However, these lootable objects will always yield some high quality items. It's common to find blue quality items and weapons, purples are also quite common.

Missions

Hidden Loot

  • There is a "secret" chest off the Northwest corner of the map. While it often contains Rare Weapons, including Orange and Eridian Weapons, the efficacy of the Chest only lasts through Playthrough 1 until Playthrough 2 is unlocked. In Playthrough 2 and 2.5 the chest becomes a normal Red Chest.
  • There is a way to get off the cliff without paying the New-U fee. Face the chest and go all the way to the left side of the cliff. Stay right up against the wall of the cliffs above. Slowly walk off the cliff and characters will teleport back to the New-U machine, but without a fee.
  • An Outrunner may also be used to reach the chest, and then the afterburner can be used to escape without having to pay a fee. See video 3 below.
  • Alternately players can just exit to save all progress after getting the loot.
