Complete This Town Ain't Big Enough 3 Liar's Berg (Hammerlock; Sanctuary when he moves there) 160 XP, $31, Skin Customization

If you’re going to survive on Pandora, you’ll need a better shield and Hammerlock sends you to a nearby encampment to buy one. Leave Liar’s Berg via the big gate and the camp will be on your left. However, there will be some bandits here, mainly Marauders, so kill them all and try to pull the switch to access the elevator, only to find it doesn’t work.

In order to get it working again, you’re going to need a fuse. Luckily, there’s one close by, so head to the next objective and you’ll encounter more bandits. There might be a Psycho or Shotgun Midget mixed in with the Marauders, although they aren’t really anymore dangerous than the other. The fuse you need is behind the big electrical field and despite Claptraps stupid hints to just keep trying to run through it, shoot the fuse box on the right side to disable the field.

Clear the area of bandits (left) before you shoot the switch to shut down the electric barrier (right).

Run up and grab the fuse, then retreat from the Bullymongs that were likely alerted (or fight them), returning to the lever that didn’t work before. Plug in the fuse and pull the lever to lower the elevator, then ride it to the top. Go inside the building and access the vending machine to buy a shield, then go back to Hammerlock to finish the mission.
