Slaughterstar 3000 is a mission in Borderlands 3. It’s also the name of one of the Circle of Slaughter arenas. It’ll allow you to test your might in a controlled environment, and reward you with potentially amazing items. A lot of players have heard about it, but can’t find it in the game. If you’re wondering how to start this arena, or whether it is repeatable, keep reading our Borderlands 3 Slaughterstar 3000 guide.
Where to find Slaughterstar 3000
In order to play Slaughterhouse 3000, you’ll first have to complete the game. This means finishing all main story missions. Once you do, you’ll have to get a quest called Welcome to Slaughterstar 3000 – it begins at Desolation’s Edge, on Nekrotafeyo. The exclamation mark only appears when you’re near it, so go to the easternmost corridor in the south of the map. Finish that one, and you’ll get the Slaughterhouse 3000 mission, as well as the ability to enter that particular circle of slaughter arena. You’ll first have to fly your ship there physically, but afterwards you’ll be able to access it through the Sanctuary drop pod interface. We would like to thank Conkerkid11 for the screenshot.
Is Slaughterstar 3000 repeatable?
Yes. You can replay the Slaughterstar 3000 arena as many times as you like. It’s a great source of end game loot, so if you don’t mind the horde mode gameplay, it’s a great place to be. If you’ve been skipping side quests, leaving them for later, you can use those to get great gear now. If not, you don’t have much choice – you’ll have to replay Circle of Slaughter if you want the best gear.
You can also try your hand at other Circle of Slaughter arenas. There’s also the Proving Grounds trials, which are their own brand of challenge. All of them can drop great loot, but there’s not much variation between them. In other words, there’s no escaping the grind.
