The H.S.S. Terminus is a derelict Hyperion ship that crashed in Candlerakk's Crag. The Terminus has since become Professor Nakayama's base of operations on Aegrus.

Points of Interest[]


The ship's armory is a large room packed with lootable objects and a pair of non-functional constructors. There are thirteen red Hyperion weapon chests, further supplemented by various yellow weapon lockers, ammunition boxes and storage cabinets. The Armory provides exceptional loot, typically above average. Adjoining the laboratory, the only way out is to use crates as stairs to reach the ledge above.

Note that this area can only be entered once for the mission, making multiple visits impossible. With the main gate closed by an energy field, Gearbox assumed players would attempt to use exploits to re-enter for the loot. If the player attempts to use exploits or map abuse and finds a way inside the Armory, the player will hit an invisible “death wall” that will instantly put the player into Fight For Your Life.

Nakayama's Laboratory[]

Nakayama's laboratory is a room with boxes and other equipment strewn about. There is little of interest besides a Hyperion storage box and a Fast Travel exit.

Sunken Cargo Room[]

Just inside the entrance to the Terminus is a low corridor leading to a drop into a huge open-floored cargo bay with a grassy bottom. There are a pair of Hyperion ammo digistructors in this chamber and an inaccessible door at the far end. The cargo room is home to Nakayama's bodyguard creation Jackenstein.


  • While the Armory can only be accessed once, if one returns with Zer0 and activates Decepti0n the hologram can pass through the forcefield. This will cause the credits to roll as they do the first time the player passes into this room, although the loot is still locked off.
  • When one enters the H.S.S Terminus, one can go into the ruined area opposite (by going straight forward) and look out of the opening to see a rainbow. 
  • There's a very convoluted method to scavenge and sell (almost) all you want without using glitches or cheats, though it only works once. After destroying Jackenstein and Nakayama during the story mission, go to the Armory, fill your inventory and before using the Fast Travel station, drop the things you want to sell in the arena portion of the map (i.e. where you fought Jackenstein). Repeat until all non-White rarity items are in the Arena. Once you emptied the Armory, pick a bunch of the trash (preferably the most expensive White-rarity items, as those are the first to disappear), use the Fast Travel station in order to return to Candlerakk's Crag, and sell the trash in one of the two vendor machines. Return to the H.S.S. Terminus, make sure to have a Rocket Launcher on your inventory (preferably one that can put you in "Fight for Your Life" mode), pick another bunch of trash, shoot yourself with the rocket until you're in "Fight For Your Life" mode, choose to respawn, and you'll appear in the starting area of the level. Rinse and repeat for all weapons/items except the last bunch of trash, for this one you can directly use the one-way Fast Travel to Hunter's Grotto (or another location of your choice) and sell it. This method is more or less similar to the method used to reap the entirety of Knoxx's armory back in Borderlands's The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC.
