At the start of this mission, your objective will be to go to the Negul Neshai. This mission will put you face to face with several enemies. In this Borderlands 3 The Horror in the Woods guide, we have the complete walkthrough for this Guns, Love and Tentacles DLC mission.
Borderlands 3 The Horror in the Woods
To reach Negul Neshai, head to Skittermaw Basin. Head down the stairs and then the mountain to the frozen river.
At the river, you will be attacked by some enemies. Kill them and then move ahead to the Umbergist Village, following the current checkpoint. There will be some more enemies here who you will have to clear out.
Head southeast up the mountain, clearing all the enemies on your way to the checkpoint. You will reach Skittermaw Lake, cross it to reach a small village. Here there will be several enemies guarding the area. After you clear this area, you will finally reach the checkpoint.
When you reach the first checkpoint, you will blow a horn to announce your arrival. Blowing the horn will spawn several enemies who you’ll have to defeat.
After clearing the Amourettes, a cutscene will play in which Eista the boss will arrive. He will congratulate you on defeating his army and then challenge you to a fight.
In the fight, he will charge towards you, swinging his hammers towards you. He will keep doing this. To defeat him, keep moving out of his way and shooting at him.
He will run out of HP eventually. He will become your ally after defeating him. After you defeat him, he will invite you to eat Kife.
Go to The Cankerwoods
Now your aim is to find and hunt a Wendigo. Which will be found in the Cankerwood area. Use the Cyclone Motorcycle to reach the Nethes Mines. During your journey, you will be attacked by some enemies.
Head on foot when you reach the Nethes Mines. There will be several enemies which you’ll have to clear in this area. After that is done, head to the gate leading to the Cankerwoods.
In Cankerwoods, you will meet up with Hammerlock to search for Wendigo. Head North inside the caves. In the cave, you will find some Wendigo tracks. Investigate them and then follow Hammerlock, killing all the enemies you find in the way.
When you come out of the caves, you will have to infiltrate an Outpost to proceed. Once in the Outpost, clear all the enemies to secure it.
Once all enemies are down, destroy the counterweights on the bridge to lower it. You will again meet up with Hammerlock. Clear out the reinforcements that’ll arrive in the Outpost with Hammerlock and then open the Outpost gate.
As you head inside the cave, there will be some more clues for which you will have to get your hands dirty. After that, you will have to get some wolven meat to bait the Wendigo. Head to the checkpoint area where you will find the Prime Wolven. Kill one for bait meat.
After you obtain the meat, head to the mixing device prepare the potent brew for Wendigo. On the way to the device, there will be attacked by many enemies. Kill them and then continue your journey.
Create Most Potent Brew
When you reach the mixing device, you will want to create ‘The Flaming Maw’. This formula has a potency of “five skulls” (the maximum) and will be strong to kill a Wendigo. It involves green liquid on the left, orange in the middle and blue on the right.
Just take a look up at the barrel of liquid at the control panel and see what color it is: move the device to dump the liquid in the right container, then repeat the process twice for the other colors. The colors are chosen automatically.
When the brew is ready, regroup with Hammerlock. When you reach near the checkpoint, you will have to defend the claptrap from multiple enemies. After that, move forward with Hammerlock in another cave.
The Wendigo Boss Fight
You will finally find the Wendigo inside Kasari Dabar. You will have to defeat him. He is a very difficult boss. In one of his attacks, he will attack using his horns to damage you. Move away from him to dodge this attack. In another attack, he will rain fire from his horns.
The trick is to make him hit the ice pillars inside the cave. Doing so will stun him for 5-7 seconds. Keep attacking him from a distance to defeat him.
After you defeat him, pick up 2 trophies from the ground and then talk to Hammerlock. Then return back to Eista to complete the mission.
