Kill Hector is an objective in the Story Mission, Paradise Found in Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith and the Fight For Sanctuary


  • The Vault Hunter will now be facing Infected Hector, so be ready for a big fight.
  • You will need to fight Hector in a few phases to defeat him.
  • Begin by using whatever weapons or grenades you have to inflict damage on him.
  • Any grenades that have a Damage Over Time effect are great to get some heavy damage in.
  • After getting through the first damage phase, Hector will create a few walls that will restrict the area you can move around in.
  • He will also summon in a Lichenthrope.
  • If you wait a moment, Lilith will come in and instantly kill it for you.
  • To progress forward in the fight, look to the vines that are blocking you in.
  • On each you will see Purple Flowers that you can shoot.
  • Destroying each of the 3 flowers will remove the vines that are blocking you.
  • Take out each of the vines to clear the arena and get Hector to emerge from his protective shell.
  • You will need to dodge the odd Tendrils that appear along the sides of the area throughout the fight.
  • Having cleared the first set, you will find a second set of vines that are blocking you.
  • Once again, you will need to destroy the Infected Flowers on the vines to remove them.
  • Be on guard for the odd Infected Badass Sprout and other Infected enemies that will appear from bulbs that Hector is growing.
  • Once you clear all 4 of the large vines, the central vine cocoon will open, making Hector vulnerable again.
  • Getting Hector to lose a quarter of his health will start to bring in Spores that will be moving in from above you.
  • Be sure to watch out for the Thorns that the Tendrils can throw.
  • The large purple ended vines that surround Hector will be making slam attacks against the Vault Hunter and do heavy damage, so be careful as you move around the area.
  • Each time Hector makes the vine cocoon, you will need to fight another Lichenthrope before destroying the trio of Infected Flowers that hold the vine wall together.
  • Repeat this process until you defeat Hector.
