Doctor's Orders is an optional mission in Borderlands 2 given by Patricia Tannis. It becomes available after Bright Lights, Flying City is complete.


"Patricia Tannis needs you to collect some information on Slag experimentation. It'll get kinda dark, to be completely honest with you."



  • Collect Slag experiment notes: 0/4


The first ECHO recorder is located between the Preserve Dockyard and Specimen Maintenance in the open room between the first skag enclosure and the field beyond. This is lying loose and is easily collected on the way through.

Another ECHO recording is hidden in a storage unit behind the Experimentation Greeter just inside the entrance to the Observation Wing.

The last ECHO recorder is in the observation wing inside a stalker cage.


"Tannis has all the information she needs on slag experimentation. One can only hope that she'll use the information for non-horrifying purposes."

Turn In: Tannis


  • While active, this mission guarantees loot midgets to spawn among four boxes in the Specimen Maintenance facility, providing a good opportunity to kill Jimmy Jenkins for the Challenge Accepted achievement. As long, as the recorder at the warehouse is not picked up at least 3 parcels spawn a Loot Midget, rarely all four can do that.
