How to Farm Borderlands 3 Bosses?

To farm bosses in Borderlands 3, all you have to do is complete the mission that they’re connected to. Then, you can return to the arena you’ve fought them in and replay the battle at your leisure. You might have to leave the planet first, just in case. So, if you, say, wanna fight Mouthpiece again, go to Sanctuary, and then go to the surface on Pandora, enter Ascension Bluff, and into Mouthpiece’s sonic throne room. The neon-loaded monstrosity should be back on his feet, ready and ripe for another murdering.

Now, the boss you want to fight again might not respawn, even if you’ve completed the mission they appear in. We’re not sure if this is a glitch, or has something to do with your level, or something else entirely. You can try restarting the game and trying again, or going back to orbit once more. Another thing you can try is matchmake with somebody that hasn’t yet defeated the boss you’re looking for, but that’s a one-off solution, not exactly a method of farming. If you have a better fix or workaround for this, feel free to let us know in the comments.

You might be experiencing headaches with something else in the game, and we’ve got a whole bunch of Borderlands 3 guides for you to peruse. To name just a few, there’s Lectra City Underground Puzzle – How to Turn On Screens, Target of Opportunity Locations Map, and How to Start a New Character.

If you're having trouble with other things in the game, you might want to check out some of the other guides we've written. We've listed the locations of Red Chests, Typhon Logs, Dead Claptrap Parts and Hijack Targets. We've explored the mission choices, like what happens when you side with Holder or Ramsden in On The Blood Path, or when you tell Rhys to keep or lose mustache in Atlas at Last. We've also covered secrets, like the one where you have to open the Holy Broadcast Center locked door.

    Question: If you go back to farm a boss, does the level of the loot scale to the player level?

      Only if you’re playing with Mayhem on.

    I am seriously bummed because none of the bosses I have fought so far have dropped a single legendary. I am up to level 17 and found a total of 1 legendary. I also screwed up and opened the emails for my Ultimate Edition when I first stated the game and got myself crappy level 2 stuff.

    bro lvl 17. seriously? you have the game for what, 10 minutes? and you want legendaries already? play the fucking game bro. enjoy the adventure. you will get a lot of legendaries. Im 25 if I’m not mistaken and I found like 5 legendaries. all of then went to trash because they’re just boring orange guns. I just kept one cool legendary smg.
