Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Achievements

Who Needs Air?

Suffocated for five continuous minutes without dying.  

For this achievement you will need to survive in the oxygen starved outdoors of the moon for 5 whole minutes after your Oz has ran out without replenishing it. The best way for this would first to be a rather high level so that you have a lot of Health, and also that you have a Health Regeneration perk active from a Class Mod or a Co-Op partners Class Mod. As long as your Health Regeneration exceeds your slow oxygen starved death, you will survive forever in this state. Do this for 5 minutes and the achievement is yours.

You can obtain this achievement as you discover Moxxi's bar in Concordia. The drink costs 10 Moonstones, and it is the one called “Squill Syrup”. And it will give you a 0.8% health regeneration for 30 minutes. Go somewhere where there aren’t any enemies after taking the drink and remove your oz kit. The health regeneration will cancel out the damage, so you can stand there for five minutes and survive.

This CANNOT be obtained using ClapTrap as he is a robot and thus does not require oxygen to survive.

Huge thanks to 'Predni' for the video:

could you technically just use Clatrap? being that he really doesnt use oxygen unless double jumping.

just a thought

Winhelm is what you use, just when his health gets low use his ability. Doing this three or 4 times while not going in an air patch will give you achievement.

The easiest Way to get this Achievements is the Health Regen Drink from Moxxis Bar in Concordia. The Drink cost 10 Moonstones and gives you 30 minutes a Health Regeneration. Purchase this Drink, go to any Location without Oxygen and wait 5 Minutes. Thats all.
There are several ways to get the Achievement:
- Health Regenerating Class Mods
- Coop Partner reviving with oxygen
- play as Wilhelm and use the Actionskill

Can't be done with Claptrap.

Go to Moxxi's Bar and buy the SQUILL SYRUP for 10 Moonstones. You get these as drops from enemies. Once you have it, your health will be restored outside and you can survive up to 30 minutes. You only need 5, so you just have to step outside and wait for the achievement/trophy to pop.

There are two things that prevent you from not getting this achievement.

Getting air, and losing all of your health.

I thought there was an obvious solution to this achievement.

Regenerate health.

One of the first missions of the game, Torgue-o, gives you a Moxxi pistol that regenerates health.

Run out of oxygen, hide somewhere with Kraggons, and randomly pop one a few times to regenerate health.

I did this in 2-player co-op. You let the player who wants the achievement go down and then you pick them back up with the other player. I revived using oxygen and then let the health run down to 0. Rinse and repeat till it pops. Easy!

Also, make sure to not have an oxygen mask on the player being revived so when he comes back to life he's still suffocating.
