Step 2. Defeat the Boss
Upon clearing the court, the boss will spawn alongside few back up Loader Bots. Since boss himself is not a big threat, you can easily defeat him with by focusing fire. Note that he is equipped with a beefy shield.
Step 3. Fast Travel to the VIP Tower Fast Travel Station
After looting the boss, simply fast travel your way back to the nearest Fast Travel Station for the boss to respawn. This time, the boss will spawn immediately & you will not need to clear the entrance again.

Farm Legendaries In TVHM Instead
Farming legendary loot isn't as important in your first run-through of Borderlands 3. This is because weapons are scaled to your current level. Therefore, it's best to farm legendaries in TVHM, where your character levels are higher and your chances of receiving high tier loot is larger.Check Out the True Vault Hunter Mode
