Peepot's friend, The Jolly Swagman, has gone missing and the Vault Hunters are requested to find him.

The Jolly Swagman corpse is found under a coolibah tree at the far northwest corner of the island where Peepot's camp is located. An ECHO Recorder is found following Peepot's request to search Swagman's pockets. Listening to the recording on the device reveals that Peepot thinks his friend is crazy and that he does not believe him. Regardless, he requests Swagman's tuckerbag to be found and brought back to him. Tuckerbag is found on a bank across the lava river where number of Kraggons will spawn and make the retrieval somewhat challenging. Once brought back to him, Peepot finds a baby Kraggon, a Jumbuck, in the bag.


"Purple lights are starting to sound perfectly reasonable, don't you think?"

Turn In: Peepot


  • This mission has several references to the Australian bush ballad Waltzing Matilda, in which a swagman (itinerant worker) camps near a billabong (oxbow lake) under a coolibah tree and steals a jumbuck (sheep), which he places in his tuckerbag (food bag).
  • The Swagman has the same voice actor as The Meriff.
  • The "Billabong" the Jolly Swagman mentions is the Vault found at the end of the game.
