Trouble with Space Hurps is an optional mission in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel given by Lazlo after entering the quarantine area in Veins of Helios and completing previous missions there.



  • Follow Lazlo
  • Enter bug burrow
  • Find brain bugs
  • Shoot brain bugs: 0/4
  • Melee brain bugs: 0/4
  • Stomp brain bugs: 0/4
  • Activate ventilation?
  • Ventilate activation!
  • Return to Lazlo
  • Kill Lazlo
  • Find Lazlo's Lost ECHOs: 0/5 (optional)


Lazlo wants the Vault Hunters' help in stopping the spread of the brain bug infection. Follow him to a sealed-off area where their burrows are stationed. Along the way, keep an eye out for ECHOs that will explain how this whole mess started (locations are shown below).

Once in the burrow area, proceed to shoot them as per Lazlo's orders. This doesn't seem to work, so next use melee attacks, and then slam attacks. Eventually, Lazlo suggests you turn on the ventilation system.

Follow the waypoint back to Lazlo, who as it turns out was just tricking you into becoming his next meal. Chase him down and wipe him out, then check the ECHO on his cot to Turn In.


"Insanity is a tragic side effect of genius. Except in this case, I think it's a purple nine moonfart patonkus. nn...Are you sure you're feeling okay?"
