Borderlands 3: How to Read Eridian Writing

While out exploring the world of Borderlands 3, you’ll likely come across Eridian Writing. Here’s how to read it.

You’ll visit a handful of planets in Borderlands 3, each with their own collectibles to get, and secrets to find. There’s radio towers to sabotage, and vehicles to hijack and salvage. Early on, you’ll likely run into Eridian Writing, though you probably won’t know exactly what to do with it. Let’s take a look at how to read Eridian Writing.

How to Read Eridian Writing

You won’t be able to read Eridian Writing for a while. In fact, you’ll need to reach the great vault near the end of the game. For us, this was around 25 hours into the main campaign, so just follow the main story. Once you make your way inside the great vault, you’ll get the Eridian Analyzer. This allows you to read Eridian Writing.

So What Do You Get For Reading Eridian Writing?

Eridian Writing can be found all over the four planets in the game. You’re looking for the icon shown in the image below, and once you’ve found one just interact with it to read it. You’ll get some Eridium for doing so, which you can spend at Crazy Earl’s store above Sanctuary. For more info on Eridium, head to our Borderlands 3 Eridium Guide.

Where Can You Find Eridian Writing?

Eridian Writing is found all over Borderlands 3. One guaranteed place to find it is in Tannis’ Infirmary at the end of the game. We’ll be posting some other specific locations once we’ve spent more time with the game.
