Main Quests[edit]

Fresh off the Bus[edit]

As soon as you finish watching the starting cutscenes, you will be greeted by a Claptrap unit. Follow the robot to the first New-U station nearby to learn about the respawn points; they allow you to revive if you get killed, and also allow you to reset your skills. You can also colour and rename your character as well. When done, the robot will travel towards the gate, although you may choose to explore the local area for some items.

When you approach the first gate, the claptrap will open it for you after the bandits drive past. Enter the gate, killing the bandits as you proceed; you'll eventually catch up with the bandit vehicle, which quickly drives through the gate before it closes. Once all bandits in the area are defeated, the claptrap will tell you about the box and tell you to collect the repeaters located there.

Since the main gate won't open, you will have to follow the robot through a small hole in the right hand side; you will learn the use of crouch and jump. Past the two obstacles are more bandits. Once you clear out all the bandits, you will be able to open the medical facility and speak with Dr. Zed.

Claptrap rescue[edit]

Dr. Zed will give the Skags at the Gate mission, but before you can start it, the Claptrap gets hit by an electrical attack. Kill the bandits climbing over the gate. Once they are dead, examine the claptrap, pickup the repair kit, and fix the claptrap.

Once the robot is repaired, he will open the gate, and return to the bounty board.

Skags at the Gate[edit]

Dr. Zed has asked you to kill 5 Skags, and they will attack the instant you pass the front gates. Return to Dr. Zed to continue.

Fix'er Upper[edit]

The doctor recommends that you obtain a shield to reduce damage from combat. To get one, you'll have to exit Firestone and turn left. Pull the fuse from the broken vending machine and return Dr. Zed's building. Place the fuse on the left of the vending machine to repair it. Finally, purchase a shield (even when playing your second playthrough).

Blinding Nine-Toes[edit]

Nine-Toes is a bandit leader within the local area. Your first attack on him is to enter a bandit base and kill at least eight bandits; even when you killed the quota, there will still be additional bandits in the area.

After completing this section, you may start to encounter bandits approaching from the side of Firestone's gate.

Within this area is a weapon chest.

Nine-Toes: Meet T.K. Baha[edit]

To strike at Nine-Toes, you will first have to meet T.K. Baha, located across from Firestone.

Nine-Toes: Meet T.K.'s Food[edit]

T.K.'s first request is to recover four pieces of food stolen by Skags. The exact positions are marked by the objective indicator, and are guarded by skags around level 3 or 4.

Got Grenades?[edit]

After recovering the stolen food, T.K. sends you to Firestone to purchase grenades to use against Nine-Toes. You can also purchase regular ammunition, basic ammo upgrades and alternate weapons.

Nine-Toes: Take Him Down[edit]

This quest is obtained by speaking with T.K. You will need to clear the obstruction to Skag Gully, and once there, look for the grave of T.K.'s wife. Search the grave to collect some items (including a unique pistol) to assist in defeating Nine-Toes.

The details for defeating Nine-Toes is found within Skag Gully.

When you defeat Nine-Toes, return to T.K. to thank him, and return to Dr. Zed to allow equipping a third item.
