Borderlands 2 Achievements

Went Five Rounds

Completed Round 5 of any Circle of Slaughter  

The Circle of Slaughter can be located in either Ore Chasm or The Fridge areas. Simply head here to receive the side mission "Hyperion/Bandit Slaughter: Round ..." from the Innuendobot 5000 or Fink. 

The Circle of Slaughter has the same concept of Moxxi's Underdome DLC from Borderlands. You're placed in an arena and then presented with waves of enemies that you must defeat until you complete the round. So for this achievement, you must get to and complete round 5. Once a single round is complete, you can head back to the quest giver to hand that round in and gain some XP/Cash as well as restock on things.

Trying to do this solo can be a little tricky, but the Circle of Slaughter in The Fringe is a a little easier because the levels are set lower. If you feel you need a team but don't have anyone that is up-to-par who can help, ask HERE.

Of course it won't be.

Have you both forgotten about those "Circle of. . " places in the first game?

These were like Underdome, except you got loot, XP, and they only took a couple minutes for each round.

It is going to suck if it's like the mokki dlc from the first game.

Hm...didn't think about that before you mentioned it, #6. It may very well be this game's Moxxi DLC, since they can devote an entire place to it, but I don't should be that hard especially late game. At least I hope anyway.

No, for goodness sake.

It's like one of those arenas you could go to in the first game that had "Circle of" in the mission title. This is NOTHING to do with the Moxxi DLC whatsoever.

Why won't anybody listen?

I wonder if there are going to be achievements like this for the Gamestop exclusive Creature Slaughter Dome dlc. Hopefully they learned their lesson with Moxxi's Underdome feedback.

they definitely know that the Moxxi's underdome was not approved of! it won't be like that... i hope

Don't worry, I get what you mean. Maybe it helps that I've been replaying through Borderlands these past few weeks, but yeah, I think it was pretty obvious.

I loved Mad Moxxi's Underdome, for the great action-packed epic music, the awesome boss enemies, and the beutiful colors! I liked the random creatures spawn and not Lance Seargents like The Circle Of Duty! I cant wait for the Creauture Underdome! MAD MOXXI LAUNCHER!!! OMG! I just am glad its 5 rounds not like 25 rounds for getting a 100%!!! I hope they dont come with another Dome Dlc! We got in game arenas, circle of duty, underdome! I think this is cool, No worries people it will be fun, and it isnt hours of gameplay to get 1 achievement. :) BORDERLANDS 2 FOR LIFE!!!

It's not too bad. You only have to do 5 rounds! In each round you have 3 waves. It took about 15-20 for each round. Be careful though they do get harder each round. Also if your playing with others and one of them dies they get locked out of the room until the round is over! Good Luck, hope I was some help!!!

This is easier to do Solo than Co-Op. Took me a 3 others so many attempts, but the level adjustments just were too much when people died on you. I did it on my own quite easily. My advice, Shotty with Corrosion, a good SMG and a lot of running. Commando is decent since you can just turn on the turret (unlock missiles for an easier time).

If anyone has modded weapons and a shield that they would give to me I would be very grateful if you could message me, I don't want it to play with now, I'm gonna do two playthroughs normally with Zer0 and start some other characters as well, but I'd just like to have some there.

@21 There's a few circle of slaughters, there's one inside the wildlife preservation place (natural annex) and another near the fridge.

Comment #23 by dormantBEAST
Sunday, September 23, 2012 @ 03:48:23 PM

There is one in Fink's Slaughterhouse (Right across from the entrance into The Fridge), there is one in Natural Selection Annex (Inside of the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve [Creature Claughter Dome DLC included with pre-order of the game]), and one in Ore Chasm. If I am forgetting one, just feel free to add it to the list.

If your attempting fink's slaughter house (just outsdide the entrance to the fridge)It would be really beneficial if you used the commando class, especially with rockets on your sabre turret. All you need to do is have decent enough weapons such as a rocket launcher (for the enemeies that have a metal shield)and a high powered SMG with fire damage. Just camp upstairs in the corner. Just dont go in guns blazing. Wait for your turret to recharge back up. Pop out and throw it again (throwing in a few bursts of fire would help. If they spawn right on top of you your best bet is to loop round the map avoiding anyone in your path. If you cant use the sabre turret. When done return to the corner a repeat. Hope this makes sense and helps :)

Also make the goliaths rage and fight other enemies. It is unbelievably helpful. Then kill them when they are the only enemies left.

Comment #30 by EL1T3 x
Monday, September 24, 2012 @ 07:24:24 PM

EDIT: Make sure you have got over 1000+ ammo for smg from the black market. Doing the same for snipers (60+ ammo) is also helpful.

Creature slaughter dome was the easiest to do all 5 rounds.

Comment #32 by pyoobez

Did the creature slaughter dome. Last boss dropped all three of us but two of us made second winds and we picked up the third. All I can say is, save your grenades and spam the final one. A gunzerker and/or a commando is likely helpful too.

This isn't too hard as long as you don't wanna go for optional objectives like 'x amount of critical hits'. Then it gets abit tougher but not to bad. Loads better than MM Underdome.

I don't think I've been so angry with Gearbox since the Mad Moxxi DLC. This essentially the same b!tch of a thing, only it's 3 waves. The moment I'm taken down, it's ALL OVER. I have to go over the same pain in the a$$

Comment #38 by rexmac88
Friday, October 05, 2012 @ 01:57:29 PM

So basicly if you do 5 rounds at any of the paces you get the achievement?

does it have to be five rounds from one circle, or will they stack? like, could i do 3 in one & then 2 in another?

Comment #45 by johnbr
Friday, December 28, 2012 @ 09:01:24 AM

Nope it's all five rounds, not to bad of an achievment, difficulty doesn't matter, and you can do it co-op as well, and all party members will get it if they haven't got it all ready.

I had trouble with the one in the fridge at first (lvl 18). i went back later thinking it would be easier but the characters leveled with me. But it turned out to be a lot easier with better weapons. I couldnt get past round 2 at level 18 but beat round 4 and 5 on the first try. It also helps if you have a launcher in your quick equip for the second win if u die. I camped out by the pipes the whole time. Stopped people from coming up behind me.
