Borderlands 3: Vault Card Guide

This guide will tell you the fastest and easiest ways to fulfill the challenges on your vault cards.
The guide will be alphabetized to make it easier to find what you’re looking for!
The guide will be filled out as I see new and more challenges, as well as finding other ways to finish quickly.


What are Vault Cards?

Vault Cards are an addition to the game from the Season Pass 2. There are 2 separate cards, and only 1 can be active at a time, though swapping back and forth between the cards is fast and easy.
They have 3 daily challenges and 1 weekly challenge. By completing, or even partially completing a challenge, you receive experience on the active card, and, once the card levels up, you receive a chest.
The chest will usually drop keys associated with the vault card, which can be used to obtain the gear and skins on the Vault Card. The chest has a 4% chance to give you a Diamond key, used on Sanctuary 3 to get 4 items. (located under the Bridge)
As the cards level up, the experience required raises as well, however, odds stay the same.

If you do not have the Season Pass 2, but want it, I suggest Green Man Gaming. You’ll get a very good deal for it there.

Raid Bosses

Defeat 7 Raid Bosses – Speed run strategy. Do Hemovorous on M6, kill only Hemovorous (leave Vermi alive), pick up any Company man, then fast travel back to the start of the map. Gate will be open and the arena resets. Repeat. FYI, Vermi doesn’t count as a raid boss. With a decent M10 build, this strategy on M6 takes about 30 minutes. Why M6? It’s the lowest before Vermi won’t spawn.

Scourge the Invincible Martyr – Guardian Takedown – Minos Prime
Wotan the Invincible – Maliwan Takedown – Midnight’s Cairn
