Borderlands 3 guide: Dump on Dumptruck walkthrough

Look for wires and a valve

Borderlands 3’s Dump on Dumptruck quest may technically be a tutorial, but the solution isn’t always clear — especially if you’re chatting with friends and miss some key dialogue. Here’s how to beat Dump on Dumptruck in Borderlands 3.

This quest is all about killing Holy Dumptruck, a great name for an easy boss. Follow the marker, climb the tower, and take him out.

This is where the quest gets a bit more confusing.

You’ll need to gain entrance to a secret basement with a big chest to finish the quest. On the same platform you killed Holy Dumptruck, look for two wires on the ground. One connects to the elevator you need to lower, the other attaches to a generator above a pipe.

Shoot the generator until you see blue. Next, shoot the valve on the pipe until it bursts. This will spill water all over electric wires, completing the circuit, and lowering the elevator door. Go down and get your loot.

You’ll need to do a couple of different quests like this over the course of the game. So keep an eye out for generators, yellow wires, and pipeline valves.
