How to Read-Only farm:

  1. Go to the location where you hand in the quest.
  2. Save the game by toggling your Badass Rank on/off.
  3. Then go into the file explorer on your computer. Go to the file path:
    C:\Users\NAME\Documents\My Games\Borderlands 2\WillowGame\SaveData
  4. Go to your most recent Save File (.sav) and:
    right-clickproperties
  5. Under General tick the Read-only box.
  6. Back in-game and hand in the quest.
  7. Exit to the main menu, then back into the game.

Tip: Store the items in Claptrap's Secret Stash.
This way you can get the quest reward items multiple times since they are saved on a different SaveFile.

In Borderlands 3 Quest Reward Items are rewarded after or during a quest. After the quest is completed there are 2 ways to farm base game items:

  • Eridian Fabricator:
    On the Legendary firing mode, the Eridian Fabricator occasionally drops quest reward items.
  • Crazy Earl's Veteran Rewards machine in Sanctuary has one Quest Rewards as the Item of the day.

Dedicated drops are items that can only be farmed at one or rarely more sources that have the item assigned to them.

External Source items are mailed to you for activities or purchases outside of the game.

This item can be bought from the Seraph Vendor in the Base Game DLC.
If the desired item is not for sale reload and try again.
Seraph Vendors sell gear in exchange for Seraph Crystals which can be obtained by killing Seraph Guardians (Invincible Bosses).
