Starting Location: Divine Retribution
Tannis makes a portal to get you back to Pandora, head into it.
Head toward the objective in the new area. Once you reach the door stop at the vending machines if you need, then head forward to the boss fight.
Defeat Tyreen the Destroyer
Tyreen is now a large weird looking monster, that wanders around the arena trying to hit you. At the start she does a number of fairly avoidable attack, when she punches the ground a row of crystals will fly out in lines away from her first along the ground. These also project in your direction as she’s walking around on the ground.
When she goes immune, she’ll eventually drop on the ground. You need to head behind her and climb up the marks on her back, then shoot the glowy bit in the middle to stun her. You can then jump down in front and shoot her in the face for large amounts of damage.
After this damage phase, she’ll fly to the front of the arena and shoot large ball that travels towards the back of the arena while shooting out lasers you have to avoid. After that she comes back down and continues the stomping.
Occasionally if she raises her right hand out, she’ll shoot out a large crystal towards you. You can shoot this in the air to stop it damaging you.
After a few stun phases, she’ll move to the front of the arena and send out two large balls with lasers between them that travel down the arena. You’ll have to jump over the lasers to avoid damage.
She will then start flying away from the arena, then travel across it with a number of lasers that you need to avoiding by getting in the gap of.
She’ll keep repeating these patterns after this, so keep shooting her until she’s dead.
Collect Vault Key
Go around and grab all your loot, then pick the Vault Key up off the ground.
A Vault Door opens on the edge of the platform, head on in to get some more loot. Grab everything out of the chests at the back of the room, then grab the Eridian Ascensionator from the middle.
When you’re finished, head back out and to the group.
Return to Sanctuary
When you’re ready, fast travel back to Sanctuary.
Go to Lilith’s Room
Head up to the front of the ship and meet Ava and Tannis in Lilith’s room.
Give Vault Key to Tannis
Hand the last Vault Key over to Tannis.
Talk to Tannis
Loot the chest that Tannis opens, then speak to her.
Place Eridian Artifact
Head over to the marked location on the ship, and place the artifact you got out of the last Vault.
