The Once and Future Slab
Borderlands 2 Guide – The Once and Future Slab
You’ll receive this mission immediately after turning in the Wildlife Preservation quest. Roland needs you to deliver a note to an old friend of his named the Slab King. The Slab King was a part of the Crimson Raiders up until he and Roland began having philosophical differences on how to interrogate Hyperion soldiers. Lets just say his methods were much more extreme. But, given the circumstances you’re going to need his help to get into Angels central core.
First, you’ll need to find Thousand Cuts where the Slab King is currently residing. Warp to the Highlands-Hyperion Bridge area and grab a vehicle from the nearby Catch-A-Ride. Head east up the trail near the fast travel station and you’ll find the entrance to Thousand Cuts. Roland comes over the ECHO to point out where Angel is located. If the Slab King is willing to help breaking in shouldn’t be a problem. For the moment just focus on reaching the Slab King. Unfortunately, as soon as you enter Slab Town the Slabs take you for an intruder and open fire. Start shooting back against the healthy mix of every bandit type and keep fighting your way north through the town. Keep an eye out for buzzards as well.
