After the introduction movie, the Vault Hunters slowly rise and are welcomed by a CL4P-TP unit that hands over an ECHO device. This initializes the HUD, with the exception of shields, grenades, and oxygen in the case of a normal mode game. New characters start with two common-quality weapons in their inventory, as well as a Personal ECHO device with details about their background.

The CL4P-TP unit urges the Vault Hunters to follow him to the next room. Several Lost Legion troopers attack and must be dispatched before the CL4P-TP moves again. It then opens the door to the next room and is then promptly destroyed. Jack greets the Vault Hunters while being assaulted by the Lost Legion.

The room must then be cleared of hostiles, when this has been accomplished, Jack asks to be helped up, which can be done by reviving him like a fellow Vault Hunter in a multiplayer game.

After Jack has been revived, the mission can be turned in. The reward is a shield module; new characters automatically equip it and have their shield module activate in their ECHO device.


"You found Jack, and you saved him. Now for extra credit, save Helios from the invasion.

Turn In: Jack
