Like past Borderlands expansions, new Trophies will be available to earn. These are:
Gadabout: Discover all named locations in Oasis and the surrounding Pirate’s booty areas (Bronze) Completionist: Complete all Pirate’s booty side missions (Silver) Treasure Hunter: Complete the mission “X Marks the spot” (Gold)
