Archimedes, The Anointed is an Anointed enemy located in Ambermire in Borderlands 3.


Archimedes used to be an intergalactic smuggler and a buddy of Clay. Both of them were caught stealing from Montgomery Jakobs with Clay being apprehended while Archimedes managed to escape.

While Clay was directly involved with helping Montgomery, Archimedes was instead part of "The Rogues", Clay's team of undercover operatives. He then betrayed Clay when he accepted Aurelia's offer of the Eden-7 system (more specifically, two planets and enough cash to build a waterslide between them). By then, he faked his death, joined the Children of the Vault, and became part of the Anointed.


Archimedes is encountered during the main mission Going Rogue and presents as the final boss of the mission with the Vault Key Fragment inside him.
