Duplicating weapons and items

This glitch requires that you are online with another player in the game. Have the desired weapon or item equipped that you wish to duplicate. Enter the inventory screen, and turn Badass Rank off and then on again to force an autosave. Trade the desired weapon or item, or drop it on the ground. Then, exit out of the game without selecting the "Save and Quit" option by either signing out of your profile, going to the dashboard, or resetting the system. Start the game again, and load the autosave. The other player will still have the traded or dropped weapon while your lost item will be restored with the autosave.

To duplicate weapons and items in split-screen, create a new profile. Load the game with your regular profile, and go to a location that does not autosave (non-travel areas). Have the second profile character join the game in split-screen, and drop the weapons and/or items you want to duplicate with your main profile character. Have the second profile character pick up all the weapons and/or items. Enter the inventory screen, and turn Badass Rank off and then on again to force an autosave. Then, have the second profile character drop all the weapons and/or items back on the ground. Have the first player/main profile grab all the weapons and/or items. Next, exit out of the game with the second profile character by signing out of their profile so their inventory is not saved. Then, go back into the game with the second profile character, and they will still have all the weapons and/or items in their inventory.

Infinite legendary weapons and create any legendary weapon

After completing the "A New Direction" story mission, fast travel to Concordia, and go to Janey Springs' business office. She will explain to you that putting Moonstones into the Grinder will make better weapons. Fast travel to Serenity's Waste, and use the "Secret Iwajira boss" trick to find and farm the secret Iwajira boss for Moonstones, purple weapons, and the "Kiwk-Smart Thingy" legendary weapon. Obtain a lot of Moonstones and purple weapons, and at least one "Kiwk-Smart Thingy" legendary weapon. Then, use the "Duplicating weapons and items" glitch to duplicate as many purple and "Kiwk-Smart Thingy" legendary weapons as desired, and return to Concordia. To do this glitch using split-screen, activate the second controller, and sign into another profile (if you do not have one, create a new profile). When the profile is logged in, pause the game with the first controller, then press X with the second controller. You will now be in split-screen in Concordia. Take both characters to the Grinder machine. To do this glitch online, use the "Duplicating weapons and items" glitch. Put two "Kiwk-Smart Thingy" weapons and one purple weapon in the Grinder to create a new legendary weapon. The type of purple weapon determines what type of legendary weapon you will create. For example, if you put a purple shotgun into the Grinder, you will get a legendary shotgun. When the legendary weapon comes out of the machine, make sure to have the second profile character/controller pick it up. After you have created as many legendary weapons as desired from the Grinder (online players have the host quit to the dashboard), press the PS (middle) button on the first controller, and sign out of your profile to autosave the second profile with all the legendary weapons in their inventory. Then, just enter the game again with the second controller profile, and drop all the weapons for your main character. Note: You will not lose any Moonstones or weapons when you sign out of your profile or exit to the dashboard.

Legendary Excalibastard weapon

Fast travel to Triton Flats, then follow the left path once you leave the building and are outside. When the path splits, continue left. Shortly afterwards, you will see a green jump pad on the right. Use it to reach the area to travel to Stanton's Liver. Once you are in Stanton's Liver, go left and jump off the cliff edge. Proceed along the rocky cliff edge to the left of the grey bridge. Jump over two large gaps to reach the Excalibastard weapon that is stuck in a stone. To obtain the Excalibastard weapon, you must have a Badass Rank of 2,500. Badass Rank can be obtained by completing challenges. You can view your Badass Rank at the menu screen to the far right.

Secret Iwajira boss

Fast travel to Serenity's Waste. Leave the Janey Spring's building, and continue straight outside. There will be a small cliff on the right shortly after going outside that you can jump up on. Continue to the right towards the large building up the hill. Jump onto the rocks to the left of the large building, then jump onto the left sloped ledge of the building. At the end of the ledge, jump down to the narrow rocky ledge below. Go forward to reach a lava-fall. While on the ledge with the lava-fall below, use your jet to jump across the lava-fall to land on the small platform on the opposite side. Enter the lava cave, and proceed forward to reach a hole in the cave floor that leads to the "Pyroclast Grotto" area, with the secret Iwajira boss inside. He is a Level 30 Kraggon that is very hard to defeat alone unless your character is at least Level 29. Kill him to get a massive amount of loot, including Moonstones. You can also obtain purple weapons and the "Kiwk-Smart Thingy" legendary weapons from him. To farm Iwajira, pause the game, and select "Save and Quit". Once you are back at the main menu, select "Continue", then return to Iwajira and kill him again.

Secret Nel boss

First, you must grab two letters that are hidden on the map that will spell "Dick" on the side of the Scavs leader Nel's base. After completing the sign, it will make Nel very angry, and you will have the ability to fight him after killing all of his men. Go to Regolith Range, and climb up the two tallest buildings in the south area of the map. First, you must shoot the rock in front of one of the buildings to release the air to launch on top of the air duct. Then, proceed up the building by jumping on the air ducts on the back of the building. At the top of the building is the first letter. To get on to the tallest building in this area, you have to use the jump pad to the left of the building. This will launch you on top of a balcony where you can find a small building to the right. Jump onto the small building and onto the air duct, then jump over to a huge screw on the side of the building. From there, jump onto the ramp, and make your way up to find the last letter.

Infinite XP, Moonstones, and loot

Proceed through the main missions until you get the "Let's Build A Robot Army" mission (Level 14). In this mission, you will be tasked with letting turrets kill 12 Scavs. Follow your waypoint until you get to a closed door, which is where the Scavs come out to be shot by the turrets. When the door opens, start ground slamming in front of the door to kill the enemies before the turrets can kill them. This will cause an infinite number of Scavs to come out of the door. When the turret kills get too high, pause the game, and select "Save and Quit". Once you are back at the main menu, select "Continue", then run back to the door to start farming again. If the turret gets the 12 kills, the mission will proceed, and you will not be able to farm this area any longer. This glitch works best with multiple players so you can have more people killing the Scavs to prevent the turrets from killing them.

After you have completed "The Beginning Of The End" final story mission, you can find Sterwin located in southern area of Vorago Solitude. Accept his mission to be given a special grenade that you are supposed to use to capture a Guardian Wraith alive. Follow Sterwin to the enemy location. Instead of capturing the enemy with the special grenade, kill it, and another Guardian Wraith will spawn. Keep killing the Guardian Wraith, and another one will spawn. To easily kill the Guardian Wraith each time, align yourself in front of the spawn area, and shoot it in the head with a good weapon to keep easily killing it. If your character is leveled up high enough and you use a sniper rifle, you can kill it with one shot in the head. Keep killing the enemies until you run out of ammo, then pause the game, and select "Save and Quit". Once you are back at the main menu, select "Continue", and repeat the process. Repeat this as many times as desired to get an unlimited amount of XP, Moonstones, and loot.

Easy XP

During the "A New Direction" main mission early in the game, you can farm easy XP from the final boss "RedBelly" by quickly saving and quitting at the right time. RedBelly has two phases during the battle; the second phase begins when his helmet comes off. Once this happens, make sure not to kill the helmet. Focus only on RedBelly. The easiest way to kill RedBelly is to get him to chase you back to the venting machines. RedBelly will not leave his area -- so he will not enter the room. You can then shoot him from a safe distance. Once Belly is defeated, Jack will say "Who the hell were those weirdos? Oh whatever, I'm friggin' over it -- just turn off the signal!" When he finishes saying that, pause the game, and select the "Save and Quit" option. Once you are back at the main menu, select "Continue", run back to RedBelly, and kill him again. To save some time, you can jump over the garage by jumping on the lamppost, then jumping on the garage. When you are on the garage, jump on the sign, then leap over the wall, and proceed to RedBelly's location. Repeat this process as many times as desired. Use this trick to quickly reach Level 14. Note: If you do not select "Save and Quit" at the right time, the mission will proceed, and you will not be able to farm RedBelly again until later in the game.

Play through the main missions until you reach the "Titan Industry Factory" mission. When you enter the Titan Industry Factory, walk down the stairs, and wait for the "Tork Swarming" enemies to attack you. Get as many Torks around you as possible, then jump in the air, and ground smash to instantly kill all the enemies around and get a lot of XP. Once you have killed all of the Torks, pause the game, and select "Save and Quit". Once you are back at the main menu, select "Continue" to spawn back at the top of the stairs. Repeat this process as many times as desired. You can quickly go from Level 14 to Level 17 using this trick, as well as get some Moonstones from the enemies.

Quick reloading

Throw your weapon on the ground, then immediately pick it back up to instantly reload it.

2001: A Space Odyssey Easter Egg

Fast travel to Triton Flats, then follow the left path once you leave the building and are outside. When the path splits, continue left. Shortly afterwards, you will see a green jump pad on the right. Use it to reach the area to travel to Stanton's Liver. Once you are in Stanton's Liver, go left and jump off the cliff edge. Cross the grey bridge, and continue straight until you cannot go straight any longer. Then, go right and continue straight until you cannot go straight any longer. Turn right to see a cave straight ahead. Enter the cave to enter an area called "The Ventricles". Follow the path to the left. Towards the end of the path, there will be a hidden cave to the left above some large rocks. Enter that cave, and follow the path to reach "Higgins' Gully". There will be a tall purple monolith straight ahead. It is shaped like the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Enter the purple monolith to teleport through a psychedelic tunnel to a secret area that is similar to the prehistoric area featured at the start of 2001: A Space Odyssey. There is another tall purple monolith in the area below. Enter it to teleport to a small purple room, similar to the end of the movie. There is also a hidden chest in the room. When you leave the room, there will be a short cutscene that references another scene from the movie. Note: The monolith will no longer teleport you after it is used.

Mario Bros. Easter Egg

Fast travel to Tycho's Ribs (unlocked later in the game). When you spawn, run through the two doors, then go left to see a hovering platform in front of you. Run pass the hovering platform, and jump down to the area below. When you land, there will be two entrances to your left; take the entrance furthest from you. Make your way through the U-shaped area until you see a new set of hovering platforms. Use the hovering platform in front you to reach the platform to the left of you by riding the platform up and jumping off it before you are killed. Ride the platform on the left to the top to warp to a secret area that is similar to the Mario Bros. series. There will be waves of enemies that come out of the pipes. If you defeat all the waves of enemies, you will be rewarded with three chests.

Master Chief Teddy Bear Easter Egg

Enter Moxxi's bar in Concordia, and go to the far right side of the bar. There is a teddy bear in a chair at the end of the bar, wearing Master Chief's helmet from the Halo series. Press X to spin the bar chair to get some money.

NBA Jam reference

The title of the "Boomshakalaka" side mission in Outlands Canyon itself is a reference to a line of commentary sometimes made by the announcer in the NBA Jam series after a huge slam dunk. During the mission, you can slam dunk while "on fire," similarly as done in the NBA Jam games.

Ned Kelly reference

RedBelly's suit of armor is similar to that used by historical Australian outlaw Ned Kelly. Additionally, RedBelly is the name of a venomous Australian snake.

Pink Floyd reference

In Triton Flats, you can find several prisms with light shooting out of them as well as a group known as the Darksiders. This is a reference to Pink Floyd and their album, "Dark Side Of The Moon".

Se7en reference

Fast travel to Titan Robot Production Plant, then turn right and enter Titan Industrial Factory. When you spawn, proceed straight and slightly to the right until you cannot go straight any longer to reach a door in "Titan Industrial Facility - Nexus". Enter the door, and go up the stairs to reach Gladstone's office. There is a lockbox on the console in his office. Open the box to find a head inside and a gun called "Twin Gwen's Other Head", which can fire two shots at once. This is a reference to the movie Se7en. The gun name is also a reference to Borderlands 2, where they had the same type of reference to the movie Se7en.

Space Jam reference

The follow-up side mission to the "Boomshakalaka" mission is called "Space Slam," which is a play on the title of the 1996 movie Space Jam.

The Fifth Element reference

A legendary weapon named the "ZX-1" is a rare drop from one of the enemies on the moon. Its description reads "Replay!" This is a reference to the "ZF-1" weapon in The Fifth Element movie, which allowed its shooter to designate a target that every shot would follow to hit in the exact same location.

"Waltzing Matilda" reference

The "Jolley Swagman" side mission is based on the Australian folk song, "Waltzing Matilda".

Grinder recipes

The rarity of the ingredients used in the Grinder will determine the rarity of the produced weapon or gear:

    Three white pieces of gear of same class: Green piece of gear of the same class
    Three green pieces of gear: One piece of blue gear
    Three blue pieces of gear: One piece of purple gear
    Two orange weapons + one purple weapon: One orange gun

Combine the following ingredients to obtain the corresponding weapon type. The level of weapons you add to the Grinder are important. The newly created weapon will usually have the average of the weapon levels which were used to make it. Using three weapons from the same manufacturer usually results in a weapon made by a different manufacturer.

    Assault rifle: Two assault rifles + one laser gun
    Assault rifle: Two assault rifles + one pistol
    Assault rifle: Two assault rifles + one shotgun
    Assault rifle: One SMG + one auto pistol + one assault rifle
    Pistol: Assault + laser + sniper
    Rocket launcher: Auto pistol + assault rifle + grenade
    Rocket launcher: Two assault rifles + one grenade
    Rocket launcher: Two shotguns + one grenade
    Rocket launcher: Two sniper rifles + one grenade
    Shotgun: SMG + auto pistol + assault rifle
    Shotgun: Shield + SMG + pistol
    SMG: Assault rifle + pistol + shield
    SMG: Laser rifle + assault rifle + pistol
    Sniper rifle: Shotgun + assault rifle + shield
    Sniper rifle: Shotgun + sniper rifle + shield

To get better results with the Grinder, use Moonstone in it to get bonuses:

    Boominator: Increases grenade damage.
    Fast Learner: Bonus experience points from kills.
    Harden Up: Improves maximum shields.
    Oxygenator: Damaging enemies restores oxygen.
    Piercing Rounds: Grants a chance to ignore enemy shields.
    Punisher: Raises critical hit damage.
    Safeguard: Restores some of your shields upon every kill.
    Serenity: Reduces oxygen consumption rate.

When creating high end weapons, the lowest weapon added to the Grinder will determine the level of the crafted weapon. Add Moonstone to get the Luneshine enhancement.

    Legendary weapon of specific type: Two legendary weapons + purple weapon of specific type. If you do not add Moonstone, you will have a chance of getting purple rarity.

    Purple weapon of specific type: Three blue weapons of specific type. If you do not add Moonstone, you will have a chance of getting blue rarity.

    Random purple weapon: Three random blue weapons. If you do not add Moonstone, you will have a chance of getting blue rarity.

    Blue weapon of specific type: Two green weapons of specific type + one green weapon. If you do not add Moonstones, you will have a chance of getting green rarity.

    Random blue weapon: Three random green weapons. If you do not add Moonstone, you will have a chance of getting green rarity.

    Green weapon of specific type: Two white weapons of specific type + one white weapon. If you do not add Moonstones, you will have a chance of getting white rarity.

    Random green weapon: Three white weapons. If you do not add Moonstone, you will have a chance of getting white rarity.

The following rules are used to create high end class mods, grenade mods, oz kits, and shields:

    Purple item: Two blue items of specific type + one blue item. If you do not add Moonstone, you will have a chance of getting blue rarity.

    Blue item: Two green items of specific type + one green item. If you do not add Moonstone, you will have a chance of getting green rarity.

    Green item: Two white items of specific type + one white item. If you do not add Moonstone, you will have a chance of getting white rarity.

A QR code can be found above Moxxi's stash. It opens a Google search for "Ghosts From Home".

Buff cocktails

Enter Moxxi's Bar in Concordia. Go to the counter to see some drinks that are lined together. Each of them will provide a temporary buff to your character. They cost 10 Moonstones, but can be useful before a Boss battle.

Special lockbox

Go to the main elevator in Concordia, on the same path used to find The Meriff. Look up just before entering the elevator to find a special lockbox in the elevator's framework.

Spawning special creatures in Veins Of Helios

Successfully complete the "Don't Get Cocky" mission, then go to the top left corner of the map. Use the jump pads to reach the small ledge that has a turret and electronic systems. Start the mission from the computers, call in a drone, then use the turret to shoot down as many of the Dahl fighters, meteors, and debris as possible. Scoring very will will spawn special creatures all over the map.

Suicidal Neil Parsec

Return to Triton Falls after the "No Such Things As A Free Lunch" mission. Go towards the fast travel point, then continue to the Darksiders' tower. Get to the top of the tower, then go to the balcony located on the south side to find Neil Parsec ready to jump off.

Freeing Benjamin Blue

Enter the research room on the lower left side of Research & Development. Free the creature named Benjamin Blue from its cage to get a reward.

Hyperion business listing

Go to the first main passage in Hyperion Hub Of Heroism. Walk downstairs to the open square, then follow the path north from there. While on that path, examine the signs that are placed on the sides. One of them lists all the local businesses in Hyperion.

Easy "360 No Scope" trophy

To easily get the "360 No Scope" trophy, use a jump pad. You can find jump pads throughout the game. Increase the in-game controller sensitivity to spin faster. While doing a 360 spin on any jump pad, use your boost to slow down, and then aim at an enemy and kill them with a sniper rifle without using the scope. While playing as Nisha, use the Action Skill Slowdown (auto aim) to do this more easily.

Easy "Moxxi's Sampler" trophy

Have at least 80 Moonstones in your inventory. Purchase all eight Moxxtails in the Up Over bar in Concordia to get the "Moxxi's Sampler" trophy. Then, exit out of the game without selecting the "Save and Quit" option by either signing out of your profile, going to the dashboard, or resetting the system. When you start the game again, you will still have the 80 Moonstones you spent on the Moxxtails.

Easy "Pancake Parlor" trophy

You acquire the Stingray during a main mission in Triton Flats. While driving the Stingray, search for some low level enemies. Once two or three are gathered around you, press L1 to lift the Stingray into the air, then press R1 to perform a Ground Slam on them to get the "Pancake Parlor" trophy.

Easy "Super Secret Stash" trophy

The mission to open Zarpedon's chest is in Pitys Fall and is named "The Secret Chamber". It becomes available after defeating Bosun during the "Intelligences Of The Artificial Persuasion" storyline mission (Chapter 5). You must find three Echos to open the door to Zarpedon's chest.

Easy "Who Needs Air?" trophy

Purchase the Health Regen Drink from Moxxi's Bar in Concordia for 10 Moonstones to get 30 minutes of health regeneration. Then, go to any location without oxygen, and wait five minutes to get the "Who Needs Air?" trophy. You can also get the trophy using health regenerating class mods, a co-op partner reviving with oxygen, and playing as Wilhelm while using the Actionskill. Note: You cannot get this trophy while playing as Claptrap since he does not suffocate.
