If you’ve cracked into Borderlands 3 and consider yourself a fan of the series, then you’ll likely be familiar with some throwback characters from the previous games. One such character is Sir Hammerlock, who is the focus of the main story quest Hammerlocked – it’s about getting this fan-favorite out of a pickle. As a part of this endeavor, you’ll unlock some other sidequests along the way that will give you some cash and some sweet rewards. Check out our guide to the Borderlands 3 On The Blood Path quest so that you can complete this optional mission and be adequately compensated for your efforts.
Borderlands 3 On The Blood Path Quest: How to Complete
Let’s give you the rundown on actually nabbing the On The Blood Path quest. First of all, you’re going to have to pick it up from Ramsden. The quest here really boils down to you helping a mate of Ramsden’s, Holder, from being held up by bandits. This takes place in The Anvil, and you need to go to the northeastern corner to start it.
First, keep knocking around in the hallways and gunning your way through enemies. You’ll eventually hit a door that needs to be opened with a button, and once you’re through there, you’re going to be tasked with finding a key to actually free Holder from their cell. You have three guard stations to loot, and one of them will spit out the key. Once you have the key, you can open the gate that’s in your way and head over to the cells.
In the main area where the cells are, you’ll be confronted by more bandits. Eliminate them before heading to the upper floor of the containment units, and you’ll find Holder’s. You should have everything you need to open it up. Once you’ve done this, the game will throw you for a loop and you’re going to have to dig around a little more. Surprise, surprise! Holder’s done a runner.
Follow the game’s directions through what’s clearly a very hastily-carved out escape route, take out more enemies, and then voila. You’ll find Holder. However, you’ll also find out that Holder and Ramsden aren’t exactly the best buds that the latter may have led you to believe. Here, you have to make a choice to side with one or the other. The consequences of this mostly mean killing whoever is on the side that you didn’t take. Regardless of choice, you’ll be able to claim a reward from the survivor so flip a coin and get to killing.
Now that you’ve got our Borderlands 3 On the Blood Path quest completion guide, you should be able to get this over with in no time at all before focusing on saving Sir Hammerlock.
