  2. Then go your computer's file explorer.
    Path: ...\Documents\My Games\Borderlands The Pre-Sequel\WillowGame\SaveData
  3. Right-Click the most recent .sav File and select properties.
  4. Check the Read-only box at the bottom.
  5. Now you can hand in the quest.
  6. Return to the Main Menu to reset the Quest Reward.

⭯ Repeat this until you have your desired weapon.
While farming you can store items in Claptrap's Secret Stash.
Items in the Stash are on a different SaveFile and are thus not overwritten.
