Guardian Hunter is an optional mission in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.



  • Equip monster trap mod
  • Capture Fire Wraith
  • Capture Corrosive Wraith
  • Capture Shock Wraith
  • Capture Cryo Wraith
  • Go to pick-up point
  • Kill the Master Poacher
  • Deliver Wraiths to Master Poacher


In order to capture the Wraiths, they first need to be weakened to 25% of their original health. It is best to use a non-elemental weapon on the wraiths. Using an elemental weapon, regardless of type, will cause the wraith to transform into a random type. Non-elemental weapons guarantee the correct type.

A new Wraith will always spawn after one has been killed.

The Monster Trap expends no grenades when thrown, and therefore the traps can be thrown frequently to ensure a high chance of capturing the guardians.

The end of the mission requires a choice, the results of which are described below. Attacking the poacher will cause a few additional Scavs to arrive.


"Good job!"
