Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel – How to Farm Unfarmable Bosses

Not all bosses in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel can be farmed to acquire your desired loot. Well, not unless you alter your ‘save-files’ to play them innumerable times – strictly for PC players.

For more help on Borderlands: The Pre-sequel, read our Nisha Builds, Wilhelm Builds and Athena Builds Guide.

Before sharing the little trick, here’s a complete list of bosses/mini-bosses which cannot be farmed under normal settings:

How to Farm Unfarmable Bosses
First off, you need to go to the boss whom you wish to farm and hit the Pause Menu followed by selecting ‘Save & Quit’ option.

Next thing you need to do is to access your Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel ‘save-file’.

Go to your ‘save-file’ and right-click on it and select ‘Properties’. Once inside the Properties, check the ‘read-only’ option and continue playing the game.

After you kill the boss, check whether you acquired your desired loot or not. In case, you didn’t acquire your desired loot, go back to the Title Screen and load your last save.

If you got what you desired, uncheck the ‘read-only’ option in the ‘Properties’ and continue the game to start playing normally.
