If you’ve been struggling to find every crew challenge in Borderlands 3‘s The Anvil area, we’re here to help with a guide on how to find each one’s location.
Every Anvil Crew Challenge Location in Borderlands 3
While the area may mostly be laid out in a linear fashion, it’s easy to pass over some of its Crew Challenges if you don’t keep your eyes peeled for ways to stray from the beaten path. To that end, use these tips and tricks to make sure you get every challenge in one visit.
Borderlands 3 Anvil Crew Challenge Locations – Crimson Radio Stations
The first Crimson Radio Station is in the open area you can enter following your first encounter with Tina during the main mission.
To reach it, head toward the cluster of crates at the area’s center. Grapple up toward the top of the pile of crates, using the splatters of yellow paint and bits of walkway hanging out as indicators of where you can grapple. The Radio Station will be at the very top of the pile.
The second Crimson Radio Station can be found in the area right before The Warden’s boss arena at the top of a lookout tower.
To reach it, look for a cement block you can grapple up onto. Climb up onto it and then use a sprinting jump to reach a bit of platform on top of a pipe directly in front of you. From there, grapple up onto the bits of pipe around the tower to reach its top and activate the Station.
Borderlands 3 Anvil Crew Challenge Locations – Dead Claptraps
After entering the prison section of the area, head into the larger entrance room and turn left. In the bottom left corner of the room, there will be a broken door you can crouch under to reach some smaller rooms.
Head under the broken door, and then turn right. You’ll find the Dead Claptrap in a small side room in a pool of electrified water.
The second Dead Claptrap can be found to the west of the first Crimson Radio Station, in an area to the Northwest of the main mission path.
Head along the curved entryway toward the main prison chamber, but look to your right for an opening leading into a side area. Circle around the side area and look to your left into a small room to find a Claptrap strung up in chains.
Borderlands 3 Anvil Crew Challenge Locations – Target of Opportunity
The Anvil only has one Target of Opportunity, and it’s fairly easy to reach.
From the open area that follows your first encounter with Tina during the main mission, head west toward a path leading into a side area in the Northwest corner of the map. Continue along the path toward the main chamber of the area, and the Crew Challenge will trigger after you reach the center of the chamber.
Where to Find Every Anvil Typhon Log
The first Typhon Log is easy to grab. Simply head north from the area’s main Fast Travel Station toward the bunker with the Warden poster on it. Circle around to the back of the bunker and look for a stone block you can use to grapple up on top of the bunker with.
Grapple to the top of the bunker, and then look to your left to find the Log.
The second Typhon Log can be found in a side section of the outer areas before you enter the prison proper.
Before heading to the prison’s entrance, turn left and look for a metal walkway you can walk along to the Southeast. Go along the walkway, and then crouch down under a half-opened gate to enter a new section of the area. As soon as you’re past the gate, turn left and you’ll see the Log.
The last Typhon Log can be found in the open area that follows your first encounter with Tina during the Main Mission.
To reach it, head toward the northeast corner of the map toward a path leading into an area with overlapping walkways. Head down the path, and then circle to the right and back up some flights of stairs. Then, turn the corner toward the larger walkway hanging over the initial open area.
Head out along the walkway until you come to some crates on your right. Jump up onto the crates, and then grapple up onto a gap in the walkway’s covering hidden by some plant overgrowth. Continue along the cneter of the covering, and you’ll see the Typhon Log on your left.
Where to Find The Anvil Typhon Dead Drop
Once you’ve found all three Logs, the location of Typhon’s Dead Drop will be revealed to you.
To reach it, head back to the area where you met Tina during the main story mission. Head out the exit next to the ammo and health vendors, and turn right at the dead end. There’ll be a small opening you can drop down into beneath some graffiti on the wall.
Drop down into the opening, and the Dead Drop will be directly in front of you.
