Farm the Graveward

Farm the Graveward

The Graveward is a great high level farming boss as it has a high probability of dropping Legendary Loot. Make sure to equip the Porcelain Pipe Bomb Grenade Mod as it can quickly decimate the Graveward's health!

Farm the Chupacabratch

Farm the Chupacabratch

The Chupacabratch is a Legendary Hunt objective that you complete for Hammerlock. Due to how easy it is to defeat, you can keep reloading the game and defeating it in order for it to drop a legendary.

Farm Loot Tinks

Farm Loot Tinks

Loot Tinks are a great way for you to score Legendary Loot! Defeating them will initially drop several items. You must then interact with their bags to open them up and possibly spawn a legendary weapon!

NOTE: Please note that due to the Sep 19 Patch, chances of dropping legendaries have been lowered.
