Middle Of Nowhere No More: Investigate is the first of several optional missions in Borderlands to find and repair a Bounty Board in Middle of Nowhere. This mission given by Helena Pierce.


"A once popular fuel depot in the Rust Commons was abandoned a while ago. People have taken to calling it the 'Middle of Nowhere.' There was a Bounty Board out there, but it doesn't work anymore. Go take a look at the board and see if you can find its custodian, Mr. Johns. If you were to get the board working again, you might find several jobs left over from before the malfunction."
