For anyone curious where the Creature Slaughter Dome (from the Gamestop pre-order add-on) can be found, it's located within the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve. If you can survive all enemy waves, you get Moxxi's rocket launcher.

i'm stuck on this achievement. i've beaten the game 1st run, and ive explored everywhere i could find on the maps between the 3 Highlands maps, Thousand Cuts, and Wildlife Exploitation Preserve. Visually all the maps look complete, as in nothing is fading to the background making it look incomplete. Is there a hidden area that i haven't found yet? I know it will be kind of hard to answer this, but any help is appreciated :)

@ #3 not sure if this will help but if you havent been to the creature slaughter dome within the wildlife preserve or if you have not been to terramorphous's lair in a thousand cuts (can only be accessed once the story missions are finished) these might be the reasons why you havent got the achievement yet

Ive been trying to get this achievement for a while now, Ive just been going through each of the three areas and Ive covered every inch of the three areas I have even go to terramorphous's lair and the creature slaughter dome. Has anyone else had the same problem with this? Some help would be awesome.

I missed Casa de Mordecai in the Wildlife Preserve. Right as you enter from The Highlands/Fast Travel, look on your map. Its directly below where you are, where there's a little circle on your map. For me, the area was lit up, you just have to climb the mountain up to his place and you'll reveal the location.

@13
I misses casa de modecai as well and beat the game... glad someone pointed it out here. I'm sure i missed it because i play co-op split screen and my friend did that part of the mission while I killed shit. He always runs ahead while I kill stuff for xp. So its easy to miss in multi-player.

@9 Thank you so much! I play frequently with my friends and they usually advance while I'm fighting. That was the last one I needed for this and world explorer :)

i think my game is glitched or something, i completed the game already and have no unlocked one single achievement about discovering places. All the maps are clear with no empty spots, anyone how to fix it?? :/

can anyone tell me if the Creature dome is part of this? i dont have it as i didnt pre order it from anywhere that did it. surely its a bit unfair if you cant get the chievo without it.

thanks

You can get the achievement through 1st walkthrough. You don't need terramorphous lair or dome. If you have filled in all the dark/hazy spaces and haven't gotten it, return to each named place listed.

When you do this achievement make sure you check the casa de mordcai cause thats all i had left and i was searching for days until this post reminded me of it.
