Oasis is the starting location of the first Borderlands 2 DLC, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty.


Little is known about Oasis prior to the events of the DLC. Based on the number of buildings in Oasis, it can be assumed it was once a fairly populated and successful town. At some point prior to the Vault Hunters' arrival, Oasis's source of drinkable water either became severely limited or was cut off entirely, leading to the deaths of the entire town save for one resident.


The Vault Hunters return to Oasis multiple times during the campaign. This city acts as the hub of Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty

  • Oasis appears on the fast travel menu, but some players have reported crashes when attempting to travel. This is likely the result of an incomplete patch. Users have since confirmed success both with individually purchased DLC and with the Season Pass for Xbox and PC.
  • An introductory video plays when a player accesses the area for the first time to introduce the story.
  • The background music for The Dust is reused for this area.
