The second ECHO recorder is located in Specimen Maintenance. It is in a box located in a room that is opposite to the enclosure of an elemental Badass Skag.

The third ECHO recording is hidden in a storage unit behind the Experimentation Greeter at 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 area, 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 will spawn a Loot Midget.
