2. Head To The Eridian Dig Site
Eridian Dig Site Location
The Eridian Dig Site is located beyond a narrow path in the Droughts. It's a short drive from Lilith's base camp. Look for a small fenced up path with yellow danger signs.
4. Defending Tannis
Circle Around Structures To Break Line of Sight
Several enemies will start shooting at you during the fight. It is best to make yourself a hard target and break the enemy's line of sight by circling around structures to simultaneously break line-of-sight and flank them!
Use Environmental Objects To Deal Damage
There will be items in the area that you can shoot to deal massive elemental splash damage. Some of these can electrocute or freeze enemies in place, allowing you to dispatch them easily.
6. Head To Raider's Drydock
Raider's Drydock Location
The Raider's Drydock is a short walk from the Eridian Dig Site. It will be near a Catch-a-Ride station so you can use that as a landmark.
7. Collecting Biofuel
Run Over Biological Life To Collect Biofuel
To collect Biofuel, you will need to run over living things. These include Psychos, Skags, Varkids, and more! Once you run them over, Biofuel will immediately be added to the Rig's collection.
8. Obtain Astronav Chip
Cult Outpost Location
The Astronav Chip is found in a small Cult Outpost in the Droughts. It will be near the Pit of Fools, a Rakk and Skag nest.
COV Attack Battle Tips
Keep An Eye Out For Ammo Chests
You will be burning through a lot of your ammos since you will be engaging several enemies. Be on the lookout for ammo boxes as you can replenish your stock when you start to run low!
Be Careful Of Badass Enemies
Badass enemies will also be present during the fight. Make sure to keep your ammos stocked as they can absorb huge amounts of damage! In addition, try to avoid their damage as much as you can since they deal high amounts of damage.
Use Action Skills To Help You Out
Your Vault Hunter's action skills will help you deal with enemies during fights. Each Action Skill will allow you to deal massive amounts of damage, summon allies to assist you, protect you, or even allow you to focus on tricky targets.
Break Line of Sight Using Structures
Enemies will have a harder time hitting you if you utilize cover to break their line of sight. You can use these structures to reload, heal up, or even flank unsuspecting enemies!
Watch Out For Enemy Grenades
Enemies will be able to throw grenades at you when you are hunkering down behind cover. If you see a grenade icon suddenly appear, move away from that location immediately! These grenades are able to shred through your shield & health!
