Hero's Pass is an area in Borderlands 2 for the first time becomes accessible during the story mission The Talon of God. It is heavily defended by Hyperion personnel and loaders and is the final step in the path to the Vault where the Vault Hunters fight the final boss, The Warrior.


This is a location that is just northeast of the Eridium Blight and leads to the location of the final battle against Jack and the Warrior in the main storyline.

Emergency Supply Cache[]

Near the start of the map is an electrical fence blocking access to some Hyperion weapon and ammunition lockers. The switch to disable the fence is located at the end of a narrow ledge, and can be found by following the cliff edge on a long curve around to the right, across a short gap. It can easily be shot out after crossing the first bridge.

Drift Mouth Access[]

Guardian Slag Heap[]


The following missions take place partially or entirely within the Hero's Pass area:



  • A chest is located adjacent to the entrance to the Vault of the Warrior which can contain rare loot.
  • A mission was cut from the game but all the interactive prompts were not removed before release, leaving a non-working '[E] PRY' in the game at one of the bridges with a gap in it.
