Defend Slab Tower

When Level Location Rewards
Complete Rocko's Modern Strife 20 Rocko (Thousand Cuts) 3859 XP, 4 Eridium

A Hyperion supply has just landed in the Slab’s turf instead of Jack’s, so Jack wants to destroy it and you’ll need to put a stop to this. To help with defending the supply crate, you will be told to get three beacons that you will position to tell the Slabs where to defend. You will have one flag for Psychos, one for Marauders and one for Goliaths.

This mission can differ depending on where you plant the flags and while the first two don’t really matter, the third one for the Goliaths can be both a huge help or hindrance. You know by now that Goliaths will go berserk and attack friend or foe whenever their helmet is shot off, so if you plant their beacon closest to the crate, then they will attack it.

You might want to be careful on where you place the Goliath beacon (left). Bring along a corrosive weapon, since you're fighting Loaders (right).

However, the Goliaths are definitely the best defense, so you will need to make a choice as to whether you want strong defenses near the crate or risk putting it in jeopardy if they go berserk. The first wave, which is the biggest, will be at the location furthest from the crate, then the second wave that comes in will have a few Badass Loaders. Since all of the enemies will be Loaders, then you will want to use corrosive weaponry. The mission will be finished whenever you defeat every last enemy.
