Borderlands 3: What is Tannis’ Lab Button Puzzle?

Borderlands 3 is full of secrets and puzzles. Gearbox Software likes to reward players for exploring and tracking down the secrets of their games.

They could come in different forms such as pop-culture references, or just some old treasure in plain sight.

Today we will be talking about a specific one: Tannis Lab Button Puzzle.

About Borderlands 3

Borderlands 3 is a Gearbox Software action role-playing first-person shooter video game that was released by 2K Games.

It’s the fourth installment in the main Borderlands series and the sequel to 2012’s Borderlands 2. 

Borderlands 3 has outperformed the bar that its archetype had set. The story is great, the humor is right on point and updated to 2019.

There are over many many weapons that come in different types of shapes that serve various purposes.

How to reach Tannis Lab?

Now Tannis Lab Button Puzzle is something else, and to reach the lab you’ll have to go through a few steps and make certain progress through the story.

First, in order to get to Tannis Lab, players must progress through the story until they reach the mission called “Angles and speed demon quest” and complete the first part.

It is recommended for players to be around level 30, which will grant an easier passage to reach the location. 

After reporting to Lilith at the bridge and making your way to the Devil’s razor, “Angels and speed demon” quest begins. Once Devil’s Razor, you will be granted the firepower in Ronald’s rest and Vaughn will request your assistance.

From there you need to use the fast travel station in Konard’s Hold to reach the Arrogant Approach. When you make your way there, head towards the north across the railyard. Now you need to find your way in.

Three waypoints will take the form of three broken levers. If you search behind, you will notice a minecart with a gas canister attached to the back. Make sure to shoot it to grant you a passage through the warehouse.

Now just keep following the waypoints and fight your way through. Eventually, you’ll come across a broken elevator in the Bleedout Smithy area.

If you look above, you will find a pipe that you can shoot a part of. By doing so, it will grant you a passage through the pipe to progress.

This will lead you to the Crawling Dungeons, which from there you can make your way to the Tannis Lab. 

You’ll have to direct a minecart down a track, while avoiding Varkids, by meleeing it. Access to the lab will be granted and you’ll find yourself at Angel’s Light, where the location of the puzzle is. 

What is Tannis’ Lab Puzzle? 

Now comes the fun part. 

A big computer console with four red and green lights may be spotted. The loading of the reactor appears to be triggered by turning these lights red in the correct sequence. 

As you will attempt to try and figure out how to solve the puzzle, it turns out there is no way to solve this.

You can attempt every combination you can think of, but after one or two presses, the lights will keep resetting to green.

I hate to break it to you but….

This thing isn’t useful at all; it’s a trick to fool players into assuming they’re on the right path while, in reality, they’re wasting their time on a pointless computer.

Such is typical of Gearbox software.
