Intro

(Marcus) After destroying the armory and taking out the biggest company on Pandora, Many of the Corporations realized that Pandora was there's for the taking.

With Atlas gone, it was a free-for-all. Everybody started flooding to Pandora to claim this new power, but S&S got there quicker, becoming even more powerful than the once former Atlas. They started developing new technologies that made Atlas look like a bunch of wusses -

_(Kid) Was Atlas the one that the vault hunters Blew up?

(Marcus) Yes, yes, Now be quiet, I'm trying to tell a story... (mumbles) Impatient brat...

Anyways, S&S had power, and everyone wanted it. Now, Dahl had a plan. Hire a few Mercenaries to go in there and retrieve the new technology that S&S had been working on and if they eliminated the competition along the way, No big deal.

Now, seeing who brought down the mighty Atlas, Dahl knew who would work just fine...

_(Kid) Was it the Vault Hunters!?!

(Marcus - annoyed) Yes! Who'd you think it was - Santa clause?

Notes

  • Scrappers will, on rare occations drop energy coils

(1) The Barracks spawns a steady stream of S&S soldiers and S&S Turrets. No items/weapons will be dropped by enemies in this area

(2) Killing the S&S Leader activates a failsafe that blows up vital components in the S&S Warship, rendering it inoperable.

(3) The S&S Vendors Fast Travel feature doesn't work when the Mission Storming The Castle is Active, as to prevent cheating.
