You Are Cordially Invited: Party Prep

When Level Location Rewards
Complete A Train to Catch 15 Tundra Express (Tiny Tina) 2333 XP, $49

Tiny Tina is planning a party and she needs you to retrieve her date, Sir Reginald Von Bartlesby. Unfortunately, she says that his mother is holding him captive, so she wants you to go and "coerce" her into letting her son come out to play. Head to the location shown on your map and you’ll see that it’s one of many Varkid nests in Tundra Express. As you get closer, Madame Von Bartlesby will spawn.

This path (left) will lead to the top of the big hill, where you'll have to fight Madame Von Bartlesby (right) to get Sir Reginald.

Madame is a pretty large Varkid and can dish out a lot of damage. It will fly around like an Adult Varkid and spit corrosive shots at you. Go at it fast and hard to quickly take her out, then go retrieve Sir Reginald from the big nest (Varkid in a jar, basically). Unfortunately, you’re not quite done yet, as Tiny Tina wants you to get a few more things for her.

This includes Princess Fluffybutt, some scrap metal from Buzzards for a teapot, and there’s an optional task to get some crumpets (they are cruuuunk, apparently). Princess Fluffybutt is sitting on a chair right outside of a small cabin-like building and the crumpets are on a table in the Buzzard Academy. For the scrap metal, just shoot down some of the Buzzards flying around and collect the flamey bits (need three). Once you have everything, return to Tiny Tina’s workshop and seat the two guests, then talk to Tina to finish the mission.

When Level Location Rewards
Complete Party Prep 15 Tundra Express (Tiny Tina) 3500 XP, $123, Rocket Launcher or Grenade

The second mission in this chain is fairly short, but it is failable, so you need to be careful in what you’re doing. Tiny Tina wants you to go get the guest of honor, who happens to be a Psycho named Flesh-Stick. When you get to the camp, you have to make sure that you don’t kill Flesh-Stick, as he is needed alive.

The rest of the bandits don’t matter to anyone, so feel free to commit mindless acts of violence on them if you wish. As you’re luring Flesh-Stick back, you may notice that he will sometimes run away from you and back to the enemy camp. You can prevent this from happening by shooting the ground near him or by letting him hit you. Once you bring him back to Tina’s place, he will be captured and you can turn in the mission.

You Are Cordially Invited: Tea Time

When Level Location Rewards
Complete RSVP 15 Tundra Express (Tiny Tina) 2333 XP, Pistol

It’s finally time for the party and Tiny Tina has invited some of Flesh-Stick’s friends, so she wants you to treat them with the utmost of welcomes. Turn on the generator and then smack Flesh-Stick whenever you are ready to go. What you need to do is defeat three waves of enemies that are trying to barge in and destroy the generator.

Be on the lookout for Badass enemies mixed in the regular bunch.

The first wave will start off with some Psychos, then it will have Marauders and finish off with Nomad Torturers. The second wave will begin with Marauders, then step up to some Goliaths and finish off with Badass Marauders. For the final wave, you will have Psycho Midgets, then Goliaths and Marauders and the last one will be a Badass Goliath. As soon as you kill him, the mission will be over.
