Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Achievements

Wheely Fast

Outrun the Wheel in the Temple of Boom.   


To unlock this achievement you need to acquire a side mission called 'Temple of Boom' and during it outrun a giant wheel that will be chasing you down a short tunnel. 

To find the mission you will need to travel to the location 'Subconscious' and head to the area that looks like a child's play area. While here, if you look east you will roughly be looking at the exclamation mark on your map that belongs to this quest. At the edge of the map, looking east in the child's play area, there will be a jump pad to gain access to the area with this mission.

You will first be able to acquire this mission during the story mission 'END OF LINE' at the point were you need to look for Claptraps 'Hope' and 'Self Esteem.' The necessary jump pad will appear at this point and send you to where the 'Temple of Boom' mission is. 

This achievement is missable as if you do not outrun the wheel in a sufficient manner then you will not have fulfilled the requirements for doing so and fail the optional objective that unlocks this achievement. As you are at the part where you are told to 'RUN' just run straight through the tunnel and towards the open archway at the end. As you reach the archway jump out of it and land on the platform in front and stand there a moment and the achievement will unlock. The reason this is missable is that there is a wide area at the end of the tunnel before the archway and you can run into it and avoid the wheel, but doing this, even though the wheel doesn't get you, will void the achievement and you will have to do it again on a different character.

In Triplex Isles, talk to tannis fish in think tank for quest. Once you grab the quest item in the temple of boom, run outside, it is a straight shot

Just in case you're wondering, if you miss the first time, you don't have to do it on a different character, just a different playthrough. I missed it on normal mode, but got it on TVHM with the same character.

If anyone is close to the area they need to do this in but still hasn't done it, please send me a message so I can get this. My game glitched out first time and the second time I had no idea when I was supposed to stop and messed up the achievement. Still have one more try on the medium difficulty, but would like to get it done without having to do the whole DLC again! Thank you :) my Xbox name is the same as my username.

If anyone is trying to get this, much like the grind gear achievement, if you don’t get the result you want I.e. it unlocking or if you mess up, just dashboard and load up the game again.

Why anyone would do a whole play through again when they can just not save after the mission failure I don’t know..

I can confirm on the Xbox 1 if for whatever reason you mess it the Xbox button highlight the game press start and quit....then reload the game again you can try again. You just have to walk back to the mission.
