To the Moon is an optional mission in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Test Jack's human moonshot theory.



"Jack has an idea. A terrible, awful, splendid idea."
  • Find Lost Legion defector
  • Offer moonshot ride
  • Trick soldier into entering container
  • Digistruct targeting beacon onto container
  • Escort container into landing
  • Drop container onto conveyor
  • Protect experimental targeting modifier
  • Fire moonshot
  • Turn in at bounty board
  • Investigate landing site (optional)


This mission is available from the southeast bounty board in the Lunar Launching Station. Jack wishes to further test sending humans to the moon via moonshot, and a nearby Lost Legion defector is the perfect candidate. Once located at the compass way-point, the defector can be offered the opportunity to test the theory.

When he refuses, a way to entice him into the moonshot container must be found. A nearby console, when activated, will create the illusion of a pizza party inside the container, tricking the soldier into entering. When the soldier is trapped inside, activating the same console again will digistruct an experimental targeting beacon onto the container.

The container is then escorted up to the landing and onto the conveyor leading to the moonshot cannon. As it starts moving toward the cannon, the defector declares he has been captured and requests help. Numerous Lost Legion Marines will appear and attempt to destroy the targeting beacon, which must be defended. If the beacon is destroyed, the mission will fail.

When the container successfully makes it to the moonshot cannon with its tracking beacon intact, it can then be fired from a console on the upper landing area. The mission may then be turned in, or the optional objective to investigate the landing site may be completed first.

The landing site is at Chunder's Hole in Triton Flats, inside a building that must be accessed by the hole the container made in the roof when it impacted. There, the test is found to be a failure and the reluctant defector dead. The mission can then be turned in back at the bounty board.


"At least Jack didn't ask YOU to get in the Moonshot Cannon. Again."

Turn In: Bounty board


  • Random number (2 - 5) of weapon chests spawns inside the building at the crash site.
