If you are fed up with the regular story mode, Borderlands 3 also present you with progressive wave portioned fights called the Circle of Slaughter where you get to mindlessly butcher enemies while their strength grows after each wave.
To access the Circle of Slaughter, you need to find the locations of the slaughter pits. There are 3 different locations for Circle of Slaughter that are hidden as side missions on the map and are easily overlooked.
This Borderlands 3: Circle of Slaughter Locations Guide will walk you through all three of the locations with detail.
Borderlands 3 Circle of Slaughter Locations
Here, you have the chance of fighting waves of enemies that get stronger every time you progress to the next wave. This can quench your thirst for mindless killing and slaughter so you can get back into story mode to carry on.
The three Circle of Slaughter Locations are as follows;
Cistern of Slaughter
Location: Meridian Metroplex (Prometheus)
South-west of the fast travel station at the location shown on the map, look for the NPC by the elevator. Upon talking to him, he will allow you to go down the elevator that will lead you to the slaughter circle.
Location: Konrad’s Hold (Pandora)
You will find this in the regular course of the game towards the end of the story mode when you are in Konrad’s Hold. There, find the location shown in the screenshot to interact with the NPC there. He will grant you access to the slaughter circle.
This one is a part of the side quest Slaughterstar 3000. It does not actually show up on the map unless you are close by. Once you’re there, accept the mission after which it will return you to the Sanctuary.
Once there, interact with the console in the command room to select Slaughterstar 3000 as your destination and go through the drop pod in the cargo hold area. Once accessed, it will start showing up as a Planet for fast travel.
