What does it mean?

I can't even capture it on my camera  

For this achievement, you'll need to head to The Highlands. Around the centre of the map, you should come across the Hyperion Extraction Plant. Head inside and you'll now want to fight your way all the way to the end and the back of the base. You should come a cliff edge.

Once you've found that, look over the edge and you'll see a new little ledge and tent down below. Simply jump off the cliff and down to the tent and you'll be presented with some audio by Handsome Jack or Claptrap and then the achievement will unlock.

A friend says he jumped off a cliff and got it, and that Claptrap yelled about DR when he did it (that's all I know at the moment).

I've heard that you get different audio each time you go there. Saw a video that had Handsom Jack and Claptrap. Those are the only ones I'm aware of, but yeah.. DOUBLE RAINBOW! ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE SKYYYYYY!

I was at Highlands at sunset, and the Claptrap started talking about the Double Rainbow. I looked into the sky and saw it in front of me o; after a little bit we got the achievement c: It was really random!

In "The Highlands", close to the building with the Vault Symbol on it, there is an area nearby below with grass and a small tent/shelter all alone.

Once I walked into the tent, Handsome Jack started saying, "Ooooooooohhhh, ho ho ho! What does is meaaaaaaan? A doubled Rainbow. Ooooooo, ho ho ho!"

I looked toward the sky at the floating Sanctuary town, saw the rainbow, and ... bam, Achievement unlocked.

Which part of the highlands?

Nice and easy. Go to the Highlands (same area that has Overlook) and go to the Hyperion complex that's in the middle of the map. Fight (or run if you're a higher level and can't be bothered with the 0xp for each kill) past all the robots and keep following it up until get to the end where there's a hanger and two badass robots come out. Kill them, then look off the side to the right. There'll be a ledge with a tent on that you can jump down on to. Hop down and look out for the double rainbow. :)

@14 rather than be lazy - actually bother to read the posts before even bothering to write a comment - it is clearly described how to obtain this achievement in posts numbered:


now that wasn't so F* hard...

@15 rather than be an asshat - actually stop to think whether they might be asking what 'double rainbow' is all about. Otherwise you just look pretty stupid when you nerd rage over the wrong thing.

@14 double rainbow is an internet meme, in short, some guy posted up a vid on youtube where he gets pretty overly emotional over seeing a double rainbow. the achievement name and description are things the guy says in the vid

Fast travel to highland (overlook), drive to Hyperion complex in middle of map, run through it til u get to the big gun on the end of cliff (just after the 2 badass robots), stand on edge of cliff next to big gun and turn left about 90 degrees, see the tent, climb over too it, crawl inside it, jack pops up all crazy like, look at sanctuary in the sky til chevo's pops :D

@15, total asshat. It was pretty obvious that 14 was asking what it actually meant not how to get the achievement. You sir, are a dumbass.

Of course I was asking what it actually meant lol, it says right here how to get it... Not only that but I had this achievement before I even came here to read about it. Tahae T you're a douche, just saying...

@14 thanks for asking what this meant and everyone else but @15 thanks for answering the question. I never would have gotten the reference either.

I am glad MOST people read the question and answered it instead of being lame

You know at first I was just annoyed that someone was being rude when it was clearly not needed. Now I have to laugh at a person basically saying if you weren't lazy and had read... When had they not been lazy and read they would have avoided all the hate from understand "what" doesn't mean "how"

@9: thats funny that when you got it handsome jack was the one speaking, when i got it, it was claptrap (maybe because i had already beat the game).

Is it me, or did Claptrap sound stoned when he saw the double rainbow?
