Arid Hills is located north of The Arid Badlands. To the north-east there is a connection to Sledge's Safe House.


The Arid Hills is an area under the dominion of bandits led by Sledge. The bandits here have several lesser strongholds and the area otherwise serves as home to a number of skags.

  • A very tough area in Playthrough 2.5, it is very common to see two badass skags or bandits appearing together here, even in single player.
  • Although thought to be unreachable, the bandit bridge next to the first bandit camp can be reached, by jumping on the various metal steps, and then grenade jumping over a large gap to get on top. The top has no loot, although if a bandit died on top of the bridge, their weapons will most likely be still up there. The bridge also serves as an excellent sniping spot.
