Clan War: End of the Rainbow is an optional mission in Borderlands 2 given by ECHO Recorder in The Holy Spirits. It becomes available after Clan War: Reach the Dead Drop is complete.


"Tector Hodunk has asked you to retrieve a dead drop, which hes left for you out in The Highlands, that details your next move in the ongoing Hodunk/Zaford clan war."



Steal the Zafords's[sic] dirty money.
  • Spot the Leprechaun
  • Follow bagman undetected
  • Kill bagman
  • Pick up bagman's key
  • Use key to open exit
    • + Loot stashes: 0/10


The Hodunks send the Vault Hunters after the Zafords' cash stash hidden in Ale Wee Cavern. The objective is to follow Peter Zaford, the bagman, down into the cavern while remaining undetected. Shooting or getting too close in proximity to him will cause the mission to fail. Once the bagman has reached his destination, it's time to bag the bagman and snatch the cash.

The bagman is a midget armed with a corrosive Oberkil! shotgun. He also drops corrosive grenades and wears a version of the Pot O' Gold, a booster shield that drops money when damaged. He can teleport short distances and uses this tactic in conjunction with his corrosive grenades to leave a live grenade behind when he vanishes.

Whenever the bagman teleports to another spot, and often whenever shot, he drops a quantity of cash. After a few teleports and/or shots, however, he will cease to drop cash.

Phaselocking the Bagman before he notices offers a great advantage as he will be unable to teleport for the first few seconds, during which significant damage can be done to him easily.

There are ten ammunition crates in Ale Wee Cavern that are packed with money. Locating and opening all of these will complete the optional objective. The chests must be opened before the key is inserted into the final lock for the mission completion, or the supplementary objective will become unavailable.

  • The cash stash can be looted in subsequent visits, although they will not be overstuffed.
  • Peter Zaford does not respawn after the mission is completed. He will respawn if the mission is failed and retaken, which can be done by quitting the game before all objectives are accomplished. This can be useful if the player wishes to farm the Pot O' Gold.


  • The description of the ECHO Recorder that starts the mission is: "Hearts, stars, and horseshoes...". This is a reference to a Lucky Charms jingle.
