Reach level 50

Aim to get this toward the end of your first playthrough or if you’re going for  True Vault Hunter Mode (2nd Playthrough), just play normally and you should be close to this one.

The fastest way I found to boost xp was to go to the Ambermire – Rogue’s Hollow, when you fast travel in (all locations in the video below) turn around from the fast travel, jump out the window and take down the Psychobillies, these guys are weak to incendiary damage, so bring a decent incendiary gun such as the Damned Assault Rifle or the Incendiary SkekSil Pistol, rinse and repeat until you hit level 50.
If you know of a faster xp boost, please mention down it the comments to help other people out 🙂
As soon as you hit level 50, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Unlock 10 Character Heads or Skins

You will find Crazy Earl fairly early in the game, he’s aboard the Sanctuary 3, he has a whole wealth of heads, skins and all other sorts of customisation, for this trophy/achievement you will need to purchase 10 heads or skins.
If you’re a Borderlands® 2 veteran, you’ll know what you need – Eridium! and lots of it. For those of you new to Borderlands® 3, Eridium is a bi-product of Slag.
Anyway, I digress, The fastest way to earn Eridium in the early game of Borderlands 3 is to farm the Legendary Hunt – Crawley, you can find this overgrown Varkid, in Varkid Valley in The Droughts.
You should get a good 10-15 Eridium per kill, save and quit, and go for it again. You also have a good chance of it dropping a half-decent Legendary SMG.
Go back to Crazy Earl and buy as many Heads/Skins as you can, if you haven’t quite got enough Eridium, repeat the process and you’ll have this Trophy / Achievement done soon enough

GS - 30

Unlock 10 Vehicle Parts via hijacking

You can hijack vehicle parts from every main planet in the Galaxy, most of these have a little puzzle/task you need to complete in order to access the parts.
Whenever you see a purple vehicle icon on your mini map, that’s a vehicle that will have a new part for you to access on your own vehicles.
There are roughly 20 of these dotted around the Galaxy, you only need 10 so there’s more than enough opportunity to unlock this trophy/achievement.
The video below gives you visual reference for the 10 simplest vehicle parts to hijack.
To actually hijack a vehicle, you need to get to it, then drive it to a Catch-A-Ride station, park it in the flashing yellow rectangle and wait for the vehicle to be absorbed.
You will then get a message on screen saying Crew Challenge Complete

  • Cyclone, Sonic Booster – Promethea, Meridian Metroplex  
  • Outrunner, Razor Wings – Eden-6, Floodmoor Basin  
  • Cyclone, Wide Wheel – Eden-6, Floodmoor Basin 
  • Outrunner, Heavy Armour – Pandora, Ascension Bluff 
  • Outrunner, Energy Cell – Nekrotafeyo, Desolations Edge 
  • Technical, Spiked Wheels – Pandora, Devil’s Razor 
  • Outrunner, Zippy Wheels – Pandora, Devil’s Razor 
  • Cyclone, Digithruster – Nekrotafeyo, Desolation’s Edge 
  • Technical, Tire Launcher – Panadora, The Splinterlands 
  • Technical, Sticky Mine Launcher – Promethea, Meridian Outskirts 

In the video below, you can find the time stamp that will take you directly to each vehicle part that you need in the description
Once you have successfully acquired your tenth vehicle part, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Tips Appreciated
Bronze Image
GS - 15

Tip Moxxi

You’ll be tasked with going to Moxxi’s bar soon after boarding the Sanctuary 3 ship. On the bar you’ll find a glass jar in the middle, walk up to it and press SQUARE/X to tip Moxxi, the amount you tip her is of no consequence for this trophy/achievement, however, tip her enough and she’ll start sending you a couple of decent weapons. As soon as you have tipped Moxxi for the first time, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

I Hope You Didn't Tea-bag
Bronze Image
GS - 15

Win a duel

This will require 2 players in the same lobby, this can be done locally, with 2 different accounts on the same console or online with a mate/random.
Easiest way to access the duelling menu is to hold down OPTIONS/START to access your emote menu, in this menu will give you the option to “duel“, your counterpart then needs to accept the duel request, simply win the duel by downing the other player, unlocking your Trophy / Achievement in the process

Stay Away From The Light
Bronze Image
GS - 15

Revive another player

You can either do this one locally with 2 different accounts or online with a mate/random, if you play online regularly you’ll get his one through natural gameplay, once the other player has gone into fight for your life, run up to them and hold down either SQUARE/X whilst looking directly at them, once they have been successfully revived your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Gun Pals!
Bronze Image
GS - 15

Send an item to a friend

You need to have either PS Plus or XBOX Live Pass and have at least 1 friend confirmed on your friends’ list to be able to send “mail” to other players.
To access this menu, pause the game then go to Social, Mail, then press SQUARE/X to send mail, select any item in your inventory, then select the player you’d like the item to go to (they don’t need to be online) once you’ve successfully gifted an item your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Dropping Loads
Bronze Image
GS - 15

Win a live grenade at a Slot Machine

There are many slot machines scattered across the Galaxy in Borderlands® 3, however, the simplest way to get this one is to go to Moxxi’s bar on Sanctuary 3, there are 4 slot machines here, 3 that take cash and 1 that takes eridium, keep playing the cash slot machines and eventually you will get a grenade when you hit 3 Psycho symbols, careful when one does drop as the grenades are quite powerful, even if the grenade kills you, you’ll still get your Trophy / Achievement

Good Against Remotes Is One Thing
Bronze Image
GS - 20

Get a perfect score at the Firing Range on any difficulty

The firing range is on Sanctuary 3 underneath Marcus’ shop. Your objective here is to shoot 15 cardboard cutouts of the enemies you’ll find across the Galaxy.
This is nigh on impossible when playing solo as for me and a lot of other people out there are having big issues with the hit-boxes, you can pump 10/15 rounds in 1 target before it actually registers. Bring some very high magazine, highly accurate weapons for this and at least 1 other player, the more players you bring (up to 3) the easier this one will become.
Once you’ve managed to take down all 15 targets in 20 seconds, your trophy / achievement will then unlock

My Name Is Earl
Bronze Image
GS - 20

Buy 20 cosmetic items from Crazy Earl

Crazy Earl is on board Sanctuary 3, you’ll naturally go to his location shortly after taking off from Pandora, you’ll need around 550 Eridium, the secondary currency in Borderlands 3, to unlock this trophy/achievement. Any item you buy from Crazy Earl will count towards this one.
The items in the Eridium vending machine to the right of Crazy Earl’s door Do Not Count towards this one. You want to be purchasing weapon trinkets, room decorations, heads and player and weapon skins, once you have purchased your 20th cosmetic item your Trophy / Achievement will then unlock

Tales From The Eridian Slab
Silver Image
GS - 20

Decipher all of the Eridian Slabs

There are a total of 30 Eridian Slabs across the Galaxy in Borderlands® 3, however, the in game counter for these (main menu, map, galaxy map, press L3/LS to view) is possibly the most broken counter imaginable in the medium of video games.
First off you need to have defeated Troy Calypso to gain access to the Eridian Analyzer, this will allow you to decipher the slabs that are dotted around.
Simply go up to the slab and press either SQUARE/X to decipher that particular Slab. Please Note – Not all of these slabs will actually register, regardless of how many times you scan them, but there is a workaround, in Tannis’ Lab

I’ll list all 30 locations below and go into more details about fixing the glitch afterwards.

  • Slab 1 – Pandora, The Droughts, Varkid Valley 
  • Slab 2 – Pandora, The Droughts, Eridian Dig Site
  • Slab 3 – Pandora, Ascension Bluff, Puttergunks Perch 
  • Slab 4 – Pandora, Devil’s Razor, Roland’s Rest
  • Slab 5 – Pandora, Devil’s Razor, Echonet Hub 37
  • Slab 6 – Pandora, The Splinterlands, Sifted Mar  
  • Slab 7 – Pandora, Carnivora, Nr. Azlan’s Stash
  • Slab 8 – Pandora, Guts Of Carnivora, Mack’s Head Room
  • Slab 9 – Pandora, Konrad’s Hold, These Are No Mines 
  • Slab 10 – Pandora, Cathedral Of The Twin Gods, Fateward Walk
  • Slab 11 – Pandora, Destroyer’s Rift, Treacherous Drop
  • Slab 12 – Promethea, Meridian Outskirts, The Spillways
  • Slab 13 – Promethea, Meridian Metroplex, Watershed Base
  • Slab 14 – Promethea, Lectra City, Downtown Square
  • Slab 15 – Promethea, Skywell-27, Maintenance Corridor
  • Slab 16 – Promethea, Atlas HQ, CEO’s Office 
  • Slab 17 – Promethea, Neon Arterial, Restricted Catacombs
  • Slab 18 – Athenas, The Anchorhold 
  • Slab 19 – Eden-6, Floodmoor Basin, The Witches Peat
  • Slab 20 – Eden-6 Floodmoor Basin, Primeval Grotto
  • Slab 21 – Eden-6, The Anvil, Hector’s Lament 
  • Slab 22 – Eden-6, Jakobs Estate, Leery Hamlet
  • Slab 23 – Eden-6, Voracious Canopy, The Green Labyrinth 
  • Slab 24 – Eden-6, Ambermire, Rogue’s Hollow
  • Slab 25 – Eden -6, Ambermire, Soggy Bog Rigs
  • Slab 26 – Eden-6, Blackbarrel Cellars, Estate Gardens
  • Slab 27 – Nekrotafeyo, Desolation’s Edge, Twilight Arcade
  • Slab 28 – Nekrotafeyo, Desolation’s Edge, The Chancellors Throat
  • Slab 29 – Nekrotafeyo, Tazendeer Ruins, Penitence And Light 
  • Slab 30 – Nekrotafeyo, The Pyre Of Stars, Hallowed Shame

The bonus Slab which will fix the issues with the in game count issues should you have encountered any, can be found in Tannis’ lab aboard Sanctuary 3.
Simply go to her lab and you’ll find a spare Slab, scan this slab until your Trophy / Achievement unlocks.
Please Note – This will take anywhere between 1 and 15 times for the in game counter to catch up with itself and unlock your trophy/achievement

Slaughterhouse 3
Bronze Image
GS - 20

Complete all the Circles of Slaughter

There are 3 Circles Of Slaughter in Borderlands® 3, 1 on Pandora, The Slaughter Shaft where you’ll fight wave after wave of Bandits of varying levels of difficulty.
1 on Promethea, the Cistern Of Slaughter where you’ll fight increasingly difficult waves of creatures you’ll find across the Galaxy and 1 in the Galaxy called Slaughterhouse 3000 which will see you fighting Maliwan enemies of increasing difficulty.
You definitely want to leave this one until you’re level 50, with a very good chunk of your Guardian Ranks unlocked. If you are struggling with any of these try and get a party together, even just having one other person with you will help massively, as they can revive you should you go down.
Please Note – There can be 4 of you in a lobby going through these Circles Of Slaughter, BUT! only the host can unlock the trophy/achievement
Also, especially if you’re going for this solo, you need to a wide variety of very powerful elemental weapons, with incendiary, corrosive, shock & radiation damage, a very powerful singularity grenade to bunch the enemies up (I went for the Quasar) a very good nova Shield, I went for the Frozen Heart
Lastly, make sure you are playing on Normal with no Mayhem Modifiers on at all as these Circles of Slaughter are hardcore
Once you have successfully beaten all 3 Circles of Slaughter, your Trophy / Achievement will then unlock

A Hundred Names For Sand
Bronze Image
GS - 30

Discover all named locations on Pandora

There are a total of 78 named locations across Pandora, don’t try and get this until after you have completed the main story as many of them are locked off until the final missions in the game.
To check how many locations you have uncovered in any particular map, press the TOUCHPAD/MENU to access your main menu, from here, go to Map then press either TRANGLE/Y to change from zone view, planet view or Galaxy view, then press L3/LS to view how many locations you’re missing in a particular zone, a couple of these locations on Pandora are locked behind side quests, these are
Devil’s Razor, Avie’s Fort – Boom Boom Boomtown
Konrad’s Hold, These Are no Mines – The Demon In The Dark
The Slaughter Shaft – Accessed through Konrad’s Hold

There are also 3 locations that require precise placing, 2 of which are in The Splinterlands, first one is Pitt’s Stop, where you first enter The Splinterlands, the 2nd difficult one is just at the end of Pitt’s Stop on the right called Logan’s Spar. The third difficult one is in Carnivora, make your way out to the large sandy area, proceed North, make your way along this cliff face and around to the right when you can, you’ll come across a very small cave with a Typhon De Leon log, this area is called Azlan’s Stash.
As soon as you see New Area Discovered for both of these they’ll then be added to your total count
Here’s a breakdown of all zones and how many locations you need to find per zone, you don’t need to uncover every part of the map, as long as you receive the on screen message saying New Location Discovered that will be enough

  • Covenant Pass has 3
  • The Droughts has 13
  • Ascension Bluff has 5
  • Devil’s Razor has 13
  • The Splinterlands has 6
  • Carnivora has 5
  • Guts Of Carnivora has 5
  • Konrad’s Hold has 12
  • Sandblast Scar has 4
  • Cathedral Of The Twin Gods has 5
  • The Great Vault has 2
  • Destroyer’s Rift has 4
  • The Slaughter Shaft has 1

Please Note – The in game count is heavily glitched, I have seen reports of people getting the trophy as early as 73/78 on their in game counter or as late as 82/78, as long as you have been to every location, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock 

Bronze Image
GS - 30

Discover all named locations on Eden-6

There are a total of 63 named locations across Eden-6, you can technically go back and get this one once you’ve defeated the Graveward, although I recommend you leave this until after you’ve beaten the main story so you’ll be strong enough to handle everything that you’ll come up against in the process.
To check how many locations you have uncovered in any particular map, press the TOUCHPAD/MENU to access your main menu, from here, go to map then press either TRANGLE/Y to change from zone, view, planet view or Galaxy view, then press L3/LS to view how many locations you’re missing in a particular zone, 4 of these locations are locked behind side quests, these are
Floodmoor Basin, Lonesome Isle – There is technically a side quest to get on here, but you can easily get this location using a cyclone rather than an Outrunner like you need to do in the side quest Get Quick, Slick
Jakobs Estate, The Unhollowed Blog – Witches Brew
Ambermire, Curltail Warren – Raiders Of The Lost Rock
The Anvil, Shankland – On The Blood Path

There are also 2 locations that require fairly precise positioning, these are Slickhouse Garage, a small hut just to the south west corner of the lowest part of Floodmoor Basin, drop down to where the water is, make your way west, you’ll see Slickhouse’ Garage just off to the left against the cliff face
Secondly, is Jason Waterfalls, make your way to the most north-northwestern part of the map, you’ll see some waterfalls with a sign, you need to walk along the very back wall until the location has been discovered. Check the video below for exact placement. Here’s a breakdown of all zones and how many locations you need to find per zone, you don’t need to uncover every part of the map, as long as you receive the on screen text message saying new Location discovered that will be enough

  • Floodmoor Basin has 15
  • The Anvil has 7
  • Jakob’s Estate has 10
  • Voracious Canopy has 11
  • Ambermire has 10
  • Blackbarrel Cellars has 8
  • The Floating Tomb has 2

I haven’t heard any issues with the in game count for Eden-6, if you have discovered any issues, let me know down in the comments and if it’s verifiable, I can add it to the guide
Once you have discovered all 63 named locations on Eden-6, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock 

City Slicker
Bronze Image
GS - 30

Discover all named locations on Promethea

There are a total of 43 named Locations across Promethea, you can get this one after defeating Katagawa Jr. Once he’s defeated, make your way back to Skywell-27. The most missable location is Katagawa’s Pleasure Pit, in the area just before you go through the ventilation shafts make your way all the way to the right and drop down, previously the area you need was blocked off by a forcefield
The Cistern of Slaughter can be accessed through the Meridian Metroplex, but *Please Note* This area is very heavily glitched. For some people, the location won’t register at all, the problem seems to be heavily linked to online play, try playing offline, if that doesn’t work, try again on TVHM, and if that doesn’t work, you have my condolences
The Neon Arterial has a very niche location called the Restricted Catacombs, make your way back through the Neon Arterial from The Forgotten Basilica, you’ll see an Eridian Slab on the right, just up to the left are the Restricted Catacombs, make your way around the left side of the wall up to the ledge and you’ll unlock this location
Here’s a breakdown of all zones and how many locations you need to find per zone, you don’t need to uncover every part of the map, as long as you receive the on screen text message saying new location discovered that will be enough

  • Meridian Outskirts has 3
  • Meridian Metroplex has 6
  • Lectra City has 8
  • Skywell-27 has 6
  • Atlas HQ has 9
  • Neon Arterial has 6
  • The Forgotten Basilica has 2

Good luck with this Trophy / Achievement, hopefully you won’t suffer the glitch like so many others have

Exoarchaeolo—You Get the Gist
Bronze Image
GS - 30

Discover all named locations on Nekrotafeyo

There are a total of 27 named locations across Nekrotafeyo. Fortunately, none of these are glitched! Makes a nice change, doesn’t it. Providing you complete the side mission Bad Vibrations, to unlock the location The Chancellor’s Throat in Desolation’s Edge you’ll struggle missing these
Here’s a breakdown of all zones and how many locations you need to find per zone, you don’t need to uncover every part of the map, as long as you receive the on screen text message saying new location discovered that will be enough

  • Desolation’s Edge has 9
  • Tanzendeer Ruins has 8
  • The Pyre Of Stars has 10

There’s no Circle of Slaughter on Nekrotafeyo either making this the easiest out of the bunch to unlock
Once you have discovered all 27 named locations, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Master Of All You Survey

GS - 50

Discover all named locations

In total, there are 223 locations across the Galaxy in Borderlands® 3. As long as you have unlocked the following trophies/achievements

  • A Hundred Names For Sand – Pandora
  • City Slicker – Promethea
  • Swamped – Eden-6
  • Exoarchaeolo – You Get The Gist – Nekrotafeyo

À La Carte

GS - 20

Complete 20 Side Missions

See Getting A Little On The Side for more information

Getting A Little On The Side
Gold Image
GS - 50

Complete all Side Missions

This will make up the majority of your time in Borderlands® 3, the main game is one thing, but these side missions are something else entirely.
In total, there are 91 side missions across all 5 planets in Borderlands® 3. The rare spawn enemies don’t count towards this total.
Some of these won’t be available until after you have completed certain mission objectives/proceeded far enough through the story, so for me, I’d leave the majority of these side missions until after you have completed the main game
None of these are missable, simply open the map on any planet/zone and press L3/LS to see how many side quests, simply seek out the yellow exclamation marks to find the quests.
Once you have completed all of them, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

100 Proof

Got Big Game
Bronze Image
GS - 20

Defeat all of Hammerlock’s Legendary Hunt

There are a total of 10 Legendary Hunts across the Galaxy in Borderlands® 3. Some of these, particularly the 2 flying ones are very difficult, some others though you can near enough one shot. Every time you defeat a legendary hunt you’ll receive a weapon through the in game mail system. There’s no pre-requisite for these hunts, simply make your way to the locations I’ll give you, defeat the unique enemy and move on to the next one.
Take note, some of these Legendary Hunts have a very powerful entourage with them consisting of Badass/heavily armoured enemies, you don’t need to take these additional enemies out, but it might make tackling the hunts themselves easier, always remember the golden rule in Borderlands® 3, enemies don’t respawn until you leave the area, so if you find you’re struggling, take out as many as you can, if you die, respawn in and take a few more out until it’s just you and the hunt
The 10 Legendary Hunt’s are as follows, you can find time stamps in the description of the video below which will take you directly to a particular hunt

Crawly – Pandora, The Droughts
Very heavily armoured, so bring a corrosive weapon. Once you kill Crawly, he’ll then spawn into 2 varkids, once these 2 are defeated, they’ll both spawn into 2 more varkids. Although this sounds a bit daunting, the Varkids do get progressively easier to defeat.

Skrakk – Pandora, Ascension Bluff
Skrakk is a very agile, very powerful enemy who is usually accompanied  by several badass and powerful Skags making this one of the most challenging Hunts in the game. In the video below, I went after Skrakk at far to low of a level, I managed to defeat it but it took far to long. So learn from my mistake, come in at least level 20/30 & and you’ll have Skrakk downed in no time

Chupacabratch – Athenas, Nr The Cemetery
Chupacabratch is a very large Ratch enemy that is surprisingly easy to take down, bring an incendiary weapon along with you and you’ll have the Chupacabratch downed very quickly. So to find the C’bratch once you’re tasked with finding Ava, you’ll run through an area with a fair few ratch, go through this area then directly left through a little gap in the cliff face, C’bratch is just in this clearing

Chonk Stomp – Eden-6, Floodmoor Basin
Chonk Stomp is similar to the regular Saurians you have been fighting throughout Eden-6, nothing really to worry about here, bring a decent Incendiary Weapon, stay away from him if he charges/lunges, Chonk Stomp has no ranged attacks so stay back and you’ll have this one done soon enough

Jabbermogwai – Eden-6, Voracious Canopy
The biggest embarrassment on this list and possibly the entire trophy/achievement guide. Jabbermogwai is a much easier version of the regular Jabbers you’ll encounter across Eden-6. You’ll see in the video I barely use 3 rounds to drop this “Legendary” Hunt

Antalope – Pandora, Devil’s Razor
Antalope is essentially a Spiderant with Antlers, not very tough with a very large critical spot behind it, don’t try and take her on head-on, wait for it to charge then load it up with lead as it runs past you.
This fight only really presents a challenge if Antalope is joined by a good number of other Spiderants but to be fair they have a very low spawn rate during the fight. Don’t run away to far and you’ll be done very quickly.

Phoenix – Pandora, The Splinterlands
Now we come to most difficult Hunt, Phoenix. This overgrown budgie is very agile and resistant to damn near everything, especially incendiary damage, bring a high firing non elemental weapon like the Shredifier Assault Rifle with you and some decent homing grenades if you have them. Using vehicle weapons work very well against Phoenix as well.
Above all though, you have to kill the Phoenix three times before it finally dies. Once you have drained its health bar once, it’ll bury itself in ash on the ground, once it is “Reborn” it will be a lot stronger, the 2nd time you defeat it it will once again bury itself and come back a lot stronger, down this wayward bird for the third and final time and you’ll have one less Hunt to do

Manvark – Pandora, Konrad’s Hold
Manvark is a pain to fight, he keeps switching between a man & a Varkid (hence the name) he’s also accompanied with what feels like half the Galaxy’s Varkids as well, they morph very quickly into adults, then badass’ making this fight incredibly challenging if you take your time with it. Bring some very powerful crowd control weapons such as the Bearcat Assault Rifle and deal with all of the Larvae Varkids as soon as you can. Manvark will go down fairly easy once it’s just you and him

Blinding Banshee – Nekrotafeyo, Desolation’s Edge
A fairly disappointing Legendary Hunt, considering how far you’ve come in the game, it’s an overgrown version of the standard enemies you’ve been fighting across Nekrotafeyo, but a fair bit weaker, bring a decent incendiary weapon and you’ll have this one downed very quickly, the only thing that can make this fight even mildly challenging is if you get mobbed by the other enemies that surround the Banshee. But like I mentioned, the Banshee is the weakest of the bunch, so take it down first and you won’t have to bother with the mobs if you choose not to

Swarm Host – Nekrotafeyo, The Pyre Of Stars
As you’re making your way around the Pyre Of Stars you’ll see a large chamber on the left of your minimap, after you have faced the bandits, be careful not to advance to far forward, if you fall off the cliff at the end of the area , you’ll have to re-run the entire Pyre Of Stars again.
The Swarm Host is a very easy fight. Bring an incendiary weapon with you and it’ll be dead very quickly.
Congratulations on getting all 10 Legendary Hunts done and out the way, as a reward for your efforts you get your trophy/achievement and possibly the worst Assault Rifle in the game as a reward…. Thanks for trolling us Hammerlock!!

Once you have taken them all out, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Zer0ed In
Bronze Image
GS - 20

Defeat all of Zer0’s Targets of Opportunity

There are a total of 20 Target’s Of Opportunity across the Galaxy in Borderlands® 3, these have varying levels of difficulty, and feel like a nice step up from the Legendary Hunts. Every time you take down a Target, Zer0 will send you a weapon through the in game mail system, these weapons are usually sniper based and are average at best.
There’s no prerequisite for the targets, simply go to the location, take down the enemy(s) then move onto the next one. I recommend you leave this one until after you’ve beaten the game at least once as some of targets will test you at lower levels.
As with the Legendary Hunts, some of these targets come with a very powerful entourage, pick off the fodder then deal with the main target to make things easier.
The 10 Targets Of Opportunity are as follows, you can find time stamps in the description of the video below which will take you directly to a particular target

Baron Noggin – Promethea, Meridian Metroplex
The first Target Of Opportunity, is also a pretty tough one, the Baron is very much like a Badass Nog, some very powerful attacks, decent amount of health and can generate a shield that turns into a machine gun. If that wasn’t enough, there’s corrosive puddles that damage you on both sides of the area and he’s accompanied by a fair few ratch, which whilst they’re good for getting second wind, can also distract from the main task at hand. Bring decent shock and incendiary weapons to this fight and you’ll have a much easier time dropping the Baron

Handsome Jackie – Promethea, Skywell-27
You can find Handsome Jackie after you’ve destroyed the radiation barrels in the main story, she’s in the next area, go straight to the end of this area, jump off right onto a large fan the jump left and down into the area where she resides. Bring very powerful corrosive, shock and incendiary weaponry with you. As soon as the fight starts, rain down hellfire on her as the longer the fight goes on, the more buffs she gets, including a very agile, high damage dealing drone
Use your shock weapons to rinse her shield then get as many critical hits in as you can, you might have to come back and finish her off once you’ve levelled up a bit.

Judge Hightower – And His Gang, Lectra City
You can only gain access to this target after you have defeated Killavolt (side quest for Moxxi) the Judge has a very powerful AOE slam attack where he’ll jump the entire length of the arena and slam down as close as possible to you. You can counter near enough all damage from this by bringing a Transformer Shield along giving you 100% shock resistance. Deal with the grunts around the Judge first then take down the big man. it’s pretty standard fayre here. Shock weapons to drop their shields then incendiary to take down the enemy.

Sky Bullies – Eden-6, The Anvil
One of the simplest target’s on this list, you’re looking for 2 Nog enemies that don’t really deal a lot of damage and have quite low health, they do come with a few bandits, but they’re just second wind cannon fodder to be honest. They can be quite agile, but you should be more than equipped to handle these “bullies” as you’ve made it this far in the game. Bring some decent corrosive and incendiary weapons with you and you’ll tick these off the list soon enough

Heckle And Hyde – Eden-6, Jakobs Estate
and Hyde is basically a Goliath, once you’ve defeated Hyde, he then turns into a more powerful Heckle. Bring strong incendiary weapons along for this one and he’ll go down fairly easily.

Psychobillies – Eden-6, Ambermire
Make your way to Rogue’s Hollow in the Ambermire, the Psychobillies are in a cave and are pretty hardcore if you’re not levelled up enough. The main problem is there’s 4 of them. Bring some powerful incendiary, radiation, cryo or crowd control weapons, which should make your life a lot easier. There are no standard enemies around for this fight, so if you go down, you might have some trouble getting second wind. If you do die, fortunately, any members of the gang you’ve managed to take down won’t respawn.

Hot Karl – Pandora, Devil’s Razor
One of hardest Target’s on the list, even without the Army that accompanies him. Karl is a brawler on steroids with a shield making him immune to all incendiary damage, very strong attacks and a large Badass entourage, you’ll have your work cut out for you here.
The golden rule applies here more than ever, take down as many enemies as you can until you die, then get back there and rake out some more, if Hot Karl gets dropped in the process, bonus.
If not, not having those enemies around will leave you a one-on-one with Hot Karl. try and get behind him whenever possible as his shield will take all direct damage to his front. Weapons like The Duc work very well here as they round impacts the target, stick to it, then explode impacting dealing double damage

DJ DeadSk4g
DJ DeadSk4g is one of the easier targets on this list. You can find him in the top corner of The Splinterlands. He’s essentially Mouthpiece’s big brother. He has an entourage that isn’t really much to worry about either, a few Tinks and a couple of bandits, that is, until he’s dead. Then you seem to get mobbed by anywhere between 4-6 heavily armoured badasses. Fortunately, you don’t have to kill these guys as your target will be dead already. Bring a decent incendiary weapon and a corrosive if you want to take out the baddasses and you’ll have this area done in no time

Again, a surprisingly easy target given how late in the game you can come across this guy. Make your way through the Cathedral of the Twin Gods, once you’ve dropped down through the hole the Eridium was pumping through, rather than proceeding forward, turn around and go back the way you came (after jumping down) You’ll find this heavily armoured dude down here. His entourage is nothing to worry about, but his defence is very high, bring some large splash damage weapons with you and light him up

Sylestro And Atomic
You’ll find your last Target Of Opportunity in Tazendeer Ruins, These guys can pose a bit of a challenge, mainly because of how good they are at flanking you. Go in with your strongest shock and incendiary weapons and you’ll come out the other side victorious.
After all ten Targets Of Opportunity have been defeated Zer0 will then gift you a pretty decent Sniper Rifle.
You can farm these targets over and over again, a couple of them have some very nice legendary drops
Once the tenth and final target has been defeated, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Barreled Right Over Them

Kill an enemy with an exploding barrel

A very simple trophy/achievement to unlock, there’s so many exploding barrels around the Galaxy, simply get an enemy near one, shoot a barrel, kill the enemy, unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Feelin' A Little Stabby

GS - 15

Kill an enemy, knifing them with a gun blade

A wide variety of guns/weapons have a knife attachment, this usually comes with a stat increasing melee damage. You should be able to get this through normal game progression, however, if you’re struggling, go to The Droughts, on normal difficulty (no mayhem mods) and melee any of the low level Pup Skags with R3/RS, these enemies are so weak you should be able to kill them in 1 or 2 hits even if you’re level 2/3. Whatever way you decide to do this, as soon as you’ve successfully killed any enemy with your knife attachment, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Stick It To 'Em

GS - 15

Kill two or more enemies with a single sticky grenade

Another very simple trophy/achievement in Borderlands 3. You’ll need a “sticky” grenade for this one. Near enough any grenade you find across the Galaxy has the chance of dropping as a sticky version, but your best bet is to check the ammo dump vending machine and buy a sticky grenade, best place to get this will be either The Droughts or near the Meridian Outskirts drop pod where all the Ratch are, wait for a couple enemies to bunch together and throw your grenade out, as long as the grenade takes out 2 or more enemies at once you’ll unlock your Trophy / Achievement

GS - 15

Equip purple-rarity gear or better in every slot

The earliest you can unlock this one is after you have defeated the Graveward and have acquired the Eridian Synchronizer.
After you have the Synchronizer, you can then equip artifacts, you should have a few purple artifacts by this point, but if not, I’ll be amazed if you don’t get one by the end of the game. If you’re still missing a purple or orange artifact, Once you’ve finished the main story, go back and farm Graveward until she drops the Grave Artifact, it’s a legendary with a pretty decent drop rate.
Either way, as long you have either all purple, all legendary (orange) or a combination of both purple and orange items equipped, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock
