Borderlands 3 Farmable Bosses and Their Legendary Drop Guide

Bosses and Loot Pools

Like in previous Borderlands games, the Bosses in Borderlands 3 also have a unique legendary item assigned to them. Since Bosses respawn, they are farmable. The great thing about Borderlands 3 is that there is a checkpoint before each boss. This makes farming bosses less tedious as you can spawn just outside their doorstep when you want to defeat that boss again. Just simply go in the menu, save&quit, and hop back into the game. That checkpoint will now function as a spawn point. So you don’t have to run through entire dungeons anymore in order to farm bosses.

Lootpool Update

Due to community feedback Gearbox Software assigned more legendary items to Bosses and Named Enemies. Before the update, these items could only be randomly obtained through world drops.
