Talk to Lilith
Then go over and speak to Lilith.
Have Vaughn Rally Support
Fast Travel to the Devil’s Razor – Roland’s Rest fast travel point to meet up with Vaughn.
Defend Roland’s Rest
Once you area, you’ll immediately have COV enemies spawning from outside the camp.
Troy summons in some more enemies, along with an Anointed enemy for you to kill.
Take him out along with the rest of the new group of enemies.
Speak to Vaughn
Head back up the hill near the statue and speak to Vaughn.
Assault COV Defenses
You now need to head over to the COV stronghold, grab a vehicle from the Catch-A-Ride and head on over there.
Retreat to Roland’s Rest
Turns out, there’s a whole bunch of boundary turrets there and they’ll blow you up if you get close. Head back to Roland’s Rest.
Regroup with Vaughn
Tannis says she has an Eridium device hidden away that will help out, head over to Vaughn up the hill.
Go to Konrad’s Hold
Vaughn sprints off, and you should follow behind him. He opens the gate to a new area, Konrad’s Hold.
Find Tannis’s Hidden Lab
Tannis explains she used this area to covertly practice her Siren powers. Head toward the objective, taking out any enemies you find along the way.
Go the Long Way Around
The front entrance is blocked, so you’ll have to take the long route through all the enemies to get inside.
Open Transport Door
Head over to the three doors at the far West of the area and try all the marked switches.
Break Transport Door
None of the switches will work, so head up the tracks coming out of the North door and shoot the red container on the back of the mining cart.
Head inside the newly made hole, and take out enemies while heading to the objective.
You can more or less run past all enemies in these areas if you want, as long as there’s not anything actually stopping you moving forward. When you get to the far West side of the area, head up the elevator to progress further.
Jump across the bridge then into the next room. Use the vending machines if you wish, then head outside to the next area. This area will have lots of Varkids in it instead of COV enemies. One of Hammerlock’s hunting targets is in this area too so you might run into it without trying.
When you reach the final room, there will be a Badass Varkid waiting for you as well.
Shoot the large red pipe to break through the floor.
Head down through the pipe, then through the next rooms toward the objective.
Tannis says to melee “Kate”, who is apparently the minecart in the center of the room.
A group of Varkids come out from the hidden doorway, dispose of them.
“Stroke” the minecart one more time.
Head into the new area to go to Tannis’ lab.
Disengage Couplings: 0/4
Head over to the machine and shoot the 4 red tubes coming out of it.
Head to the South side of the machine and hit the toggle switch.
Go to Garage
Head over and enter the Sandblast Scar travel point.
Drive Vaughn’s Technical
Head down and hop in the vehicle Vaughn has waiting for you.
Drive Reactor to Safety
Now drive yourself and the reactor all the way through this area to the other side. Take out or avoid any enemies in your way on the drive.
Destroy Big Gas Tank
When you get to the final area your way will be blocked, shoot the big red gas tank.
Meet Vaughn in Roland’s Rest
At the end of the area drive the truck onto the elevator, then head through to Devil’s Razor. Once there head over into the marked area.
Speak to Vaughn
Head up the hill and speak to Vaughn to complete the mission.
