So, you're one of those Vault Hunters who's spent their time in Borderlands 3 trying to help Mad Moxxi one-up Handsome Jack for all that he's done. Once the Moxxi's Heist DLC was revealed, we knew that we'd come rushing right back to the game to take down a whole new range of bosses and to lay hands on a ton of new weapons. Now, check out our Borderlands 3 Acid Trip guide for some advice on how to complete this particular DLC mission.
Borderlands 3 Acid Trip Guide - Moxxi's Heist DLC
The Borderlands 3 Acid Trip mission is a sidequest that only appears as part of the Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot DLC, so if you haven't got this to plow through then you're not going to have to worry about it at all.
If you have been enlisted by the lovely Moxxi to help her take back what's hers, though, then you might want to perk up. Essentially, you'll have also had to have completed the Jack's Wild story mission that's part of the DLC story content first before this quest becomes available at level 50.
You'll pick up the Acid Trip quest from Hitch in the Spendopticon, and your objectives are reasonably straightforward here. You'll be told that you're going to have to take out other Loaders in the R&D lab before they dethrone Hitch from being, well, the best murderous robot that anyone's ever seen in recent memory. The steps you'll have to take are below:
- Find the R&d lab and clear it out
- Activate the supercomputer powering everything
- Free and destroy two prototype loader bots
- Free Facemelt and kill it - immune to corrosive damage, so keep that in mind
Facemelt is the last prototype in this secret R&D lab that HItch has had you infiltrate, but it isn't much harder to defeat than the prototypes that came before it. The important thing about killing Facemelt and finishing this optional mission, however, is the fact that you'll also pick up the Melt Facer Epic shotgun. This weapon is highly effective against Armor, so it's a worthy get if you don't have something that fills that spot in your deadly arsenal. Now that you've got our Borderlands 3 Acid Trip guide to rely on, finishing this side mission should be a piece of cake. Need a hand with anything else?
