Won't Get Fooled Again is an optional mission in Borderlands 2 given by Marshall Friedman.


"Hey. Feel like solvin' a murder? I'm the Marshall around these parts. One of these Gutter quadruplets pulled the trigger on that boy over there. Consider yourself deputized - ask around at Moxxi and Zed's, figure out which one of these identical scum-stains pulled the trigger. Otherwise I'll just have to hang 'em all, and I don't got that kinda time."




A group of people are found standing around the body of Justin Macready. Marshall Friedman explains that one of the Gutter quadruplets in front of him killed Justin. Friedman needs helps in determining who was responsible. Talking to Marshall Friedman, Moxxi, and Zed will reveal information that can be used to deduce which of the four suspects committed the crime.


"Thanks again."

  • After the mission, the sheriff and the body will stay in the same place for the rest of the game.
  • The killer is always Barlo (the sniper) because he is the only one who fits all three witness conditions: he is carrying a weapon that fires bullets, he has a shield (blue life bar, not physically rendered shield generator), and he is at full health (due to the doctor patching him up).
