Lab 19 is an optional mission in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.



  • Find more clues about Lab 19
  • Find Lab 19
  • Investigate Lab 19
  • Open Lab 19 vault
  • Kill Tiny Destroyer


When the mission is accepted from the first ECHO recorder, subsequent objectives to locate another ECHO recording and Lab 19 itself arise. Lab 19 is opened by way of a computer console, but to open access a four-digit code must be entered. The combination lock can be seen up on the wall beyond the console. Shooting the arrows to either side of the numbers raises or lowers them, and an accurate single-shot weapon is optimal for hitting these small targets without wasting ammunition.

The numbers for the combination lock are located in another room marked on the HUD. These numbers are valid for a limited time, so a quick dash back to Lab 19 will be needed to input the code in time. The distance can be shortened by reading the numbers through a glass wall on the path between the two rooms, or communicated to another player waiting to enter the code in a multi-player game.

The Tiny Destroyer is extremely weak and does not require any specific tactics or weapons to be killed.
