How to Use Fast Red Chest Legendary Farm Glitch in Borderlands 3?

To use a glitch to farm Legendaries from red Chests in the new Borderlands 3 event, the first order of business is to go into the Cistern of Slaughter. Take the Cistern of Slaughter quest from the NPC behind the counter. Then, head up the stairs and take the elevator down into the arena. Go straight forward and a bit to the right, up the small ramp, and hit the button on top. Then, facing the button, turn to the left and sprint into the corner of the arena. Run back to the button, push it again, then back into the corner. Rinse and repeat as many times you want.

The more times you push that button, the more chests you’ll spawn, as we’ll explain in a second. Just keep in mind that the more red chests you spawn through the glitch, the more the game will start to lag. You are breaking it, after all. Anyway, when you’re done spawning chests, head to the far side of the arena. You’ll find three cages, with one on top of the other two. Hop into the top cage, and you’ll see a red chest there. It seems like it’s only one chest, but in fact, there’s a Russian nesting doll of red chests inside. Start spamming the Open Chest button until they stop opening, and collect your legendary loot.

Now, keep in mind, this glitch will probably get fixed real soon. At the time of writing, it’s still there, but likely not for long. If the devs did patch it out, head to our Red Chest Locations in Borderlands 3 guide to see where you can find all the other red chests strewn across the game.
