How to farm:
Big Boom Blaster (BL3)

Origin:
Base Game
Sources:
World Drop
Named Enemy: The Unstoppable

World Drop

Unavailable items were temporarily available during a seasonal event. They might come back.

World Drops are items that drop from any suitable Loot Source in addition to their other sources.

Base Game World Drops are items that drop from any suitable Loot Source, within the DLC, in addition to their other sources.

Suitable Loot Sources:

  • Most Enemies:
    Bosses, badass or non-badass enemies, ...
  • Red Chests, lockers, garbage containers, cardboard boxes, garbage/skag/... piles
  • Slot Machines
  • All Enemies:
    Bosses, Crew Challenges, Generic Enemies, ...
  • All kinds of Chests
  • Vending Machines
  • Slot Machines
  • Eridian Fabricator
  • All Enemies:
    Bosses, Crew Challenges, Generic Enemies, ...
  • All kinds of Chests

Datamined items are not obtainable with legitimate methods.
They can only be obtained using bugs or the Cheat Engine on the PC.

Quest Reward Items in Borderlands 2 can be farmed on PC by Read-Only farming.

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.
  8. Now you will be able to hand in the quest again.

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).
