Sanctuary III is an interstellar spaceship that acts as the main base of operations in Borderlands 3. Initially providing a way off Pandora, it continues to provide the access points to each new planet visited, and houses a wide variety of amenities to help maintain or upgrade characters between planetside adventures.

Points of Interest

The Bridge

The bridge is where Lilith commands the Crimson Raiders. There is a navigation console in the middle of the room that can be used to set a travel course towards new planets and locations.

Hammerlock's Quarters

A well-designed study where Sir Hammerlock resides. As rare creatures are found and killed, their heads will be mounted on the walls as trophies.


Dr. Tannis can usually be found here tending to the Crimson Raiders' medical needs, or studying Eridian relics. Vending machines for health and shields are stationed inside.

Marcus Munitions

This is where Marcus has vending machines for guns and ammo stationed, plus SDUs for expanded ammo and storage capacity. Downstairs from here is the firing range, handy for practicing marksmanship against moving targets.


Sanctuary III's bar, run by Moxxi. There are various slot machines inside where one may try their luck for possible rewards.

Crew Quarters

Four small rooms have been reserved for Vault Hunter in the current game. Each room contains spots to hang decorations, display mounts to place guns and gear as trophies, and a Bank to store excess gear. The bank is shared between all characters. Outside of the rooms are a Quick Change station to change character appearance, emotes, and respec skill points, and a Lost Loot machine that can respawn Rare or better quality items that have been left behind in the game environment. The Golden Chest can also be found here to spend SHiFT Golden Keys for high-value items.

Cargo Bay

Ellie works in the cargo bay where she stores the various captured vehicle parts. Off to the side is Claptrap's personal quarters where he is working to build a companion using old CL4P-TP parts. In the back is Crazy Earl's Hideout, where Eridium can be exchanged for cosmetic upgrades or items with Anointed perks.
