Borderlands Achievements

Depot Demolition

Destroy the Lance Depot   

After you complete the quest "Bridge the Gap" you will enter Road's End and receive the quest "Armory Assault." Your goal here is to kill General Knoxx, enter the code to the Armory (Blue, Yellow, Cyan, Orange) and blow up the Armory. The only difficult part of this for some may be killing General Knoxx. The easiest way to defeat him is to use a highly corrosive weapon on him. Also, be sure to kill any medics that appear right away. They love to drop their healing turrets which heal Knoxx very quickly. After Knoxx is dead, the rest of the mission is self explanatory.

GLITCH WARNING: In order to avoid your game glitching and making the Armory permanently closed, you must do the following:
- Do not quit out of the game once you enter the elevator shaft. Wait until the Armory explodes and the credits are done to quit out.
- Don't have the quests "Super Marcus Sweep" or "It's Like Christmas" in your quest log.

when it says dont have these certain missions in your log book does that mean dont accept them or you need to finish them?

Looking at the description of those missions on the wiki, it looks like those are missions that are only really valid AFTER you've destroyed Knoxx... so with that said I'm assuming that by having those missions active (or completed) the game will think you're playing those missions as opposed to the one that will pop the achievement.

Both of them are received from Marcus. I haven't received either yet so I'm planning on destroying the depot before I even talk to Marcus again.

You get this achievement once you've visited the armory and looted it for the first time. You would have to of defeated general knoxx.

So I got to the last room, saved, and exited in hopes that I could go back and loot the lockers behind the force fields. However, now I cannot get back into that room to complete the mission. Any suggestions?

Only advice I can give is be careful when doing this one if you already have the two other lootrun missions available (through playing online with others) If anyone is about to do this one add/invite me? Happy to help and I still wanna pick this one up!

If you do get the mutliplayer lockout (#7), then you have to do the final mission three times to unlock it. The first two complete Marcus' missions (turn-in after each), then the third fulfils Althea's.

ok I went through on my Playthrough 1. Went and beat Knoxx, then looted, then let it blow up and watched the credits. Then it spawns you back at the entrance of the armory and the achievement pops. Just FYI

Got it with "Super Marcus Sweep" and "It's Like Christmas" in quest log.Simply do not push left button (dont expose mutions) when you get in elevator to the armory.,only right to get down,loot,explode. after you complete "Super Marcus Sweep" and "It's Like Christmas" turn in (to clear your quest log), then again drive and kill Knoxx, get to the armory and now push left button to expose munitions.get down wait timer and after credits ends achievement pops out.

@ # 16. Thanks. That helped me out of a bind. I followed what you said to a T and go myself out of a glitchy situation. I didn't even realize I had the "Super Marcus Sweep" quest active but I am glad that someone found a way out of it.

If you follow what #16 says exactly you can get the achievement. Thanks Again!!!!

I did it in single player. I did not go to Marcus to accept Super Marcus Sweep or It's like Christmas. I did main missions. I followed borderlands wiki challenges. I found that if Athena is watching the Armory explode and not Marcus then the credits will show and achievement will pop. Hope this helps!

General Knoxx is not too bad if you have a good Sniper, I tried using my Rocket Launcher but (even though it was good) did very little damage to him. I sat beside one of the containers and kept on deploying my turret and shooting him in the face with my Sniper and he will go down pretty quick. I done this solo btw, so it would be MUCH easier in co-op as you can so-round him.

Update: I bought the GOTYE brand new, so any updates would have been built in but the Armoury glitch still works. Just remember to save & quit once you have finished hoarding.

I've had problems with this one. Got the quest all done, and ready to turn in but the armory appears to be locked? Had Marcus's 2 quest on me before reading this. The turn in seems to be in the armory?
