The Backdoor is located west of The Salt Flats. At the end is a one-way transition to Crimson Fastness.


This map is unlocked after the Vault Key is taken by Commandant Steele and the Vault hunters are forced to take action. It is a secret passage into the Crimson Fastness, which in turn leads to the Crimson Enclave.
