The Iceman Cometh

When Level Location Rewards
Complete Rising Action and No Vacancy 14 Bounty Board at Happy Pig Motel (Three Horns - Valley) 2069 XP, $219, Grenade or Shield

Note that you need to complete No Vacancy prior to starting this mission, as the Bounty Board at the Happy Pig Motel won’t be activated without it done. Roland needs some help with some bandits and wants them dead, but Claptrap suggests that freezing them might be a better option. Pick up the dynamite next to your starting location and head out to the bandit camp.

The entrance to the bandit camp (left). Plant the dynamite directly on each furnace (right).

The bandit camp you’re looking for is the Drydocks in Three Horns - Divide, which is close to the northern exit to Three Horns - Valley. All of the furnaces are fairly easy to find and get to, and you only need to walk up to each one and place the dynamite. Once you plant all five, go to the detonator to give the bandits an icy chill down their spines. Of course, this makes some Freezing Bandits spawn and come after you, so do what you do best, then return to the Bounty Board to turn in the mission.
