Much of the fun one can have while playing any of the Borderlands series comes from discovering the best weapons and legendary loot. Whether the loot comes in the form of a Star Wars reference, or it can shoot barrels at your enemies, or it just has S-tier stats, it’s good to have something cool and rare to show your friends (and enemies, I’m guessing) while playing The wonders of Tiny Tina.
Legendary loot isn’t just an endgame event either, and there’s every chance you’ll encounter a Legendary from any drop. However, here are some guaranteed early-game legendary items that you can pick up right now, to add to your collection of goofy, overpowered weapons.
We’ll also cover how to increase your loot chance and your overall drop chance, so you can cultivate a healthy crop of bonkers bangsticks.
How to increase loot chance in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
First off, you’ll want to keep an eye on your loot chance under your character stats – we’re going to focus on improving this, so your chances of finding top tier hero-suitable loot are a lot. higher. This will usually increase as you level up, but there are a few other steps you can take to make it even higher.
Lucky Dice is a collectible that you’ll see strewn across Wonderland. They’re usually hidden in quiet corners of the map or on platforms where a perfectly timed jump is needed to reach it, and there are over 200 of them to find.
It’s quite an achievement, but as Tiny Tina herself says, “The more dice, the more loot!” For every lucky dice you find, your chance of loot will increase. So, there is no pressure to find them all, but the more you find, the higher your chance of loot will be.
Among the loot you’ll regularly pick up in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, be sure to keep an eye out for amulets. If you’re lucky, there are a few amulets that will increase your loot chance when worn. So if you’re looking to farm legendary items, finding and equipping one is a must.
As for those nearing the endgame of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, Loot Luck can then be increased by using your Myth Rank and Chaos Chambers.
How to Get Legendary Items in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
Now that you’ve (hopefully) spent some time increasing your loot luck in Tiny Tina’s Wonderland, your next quest is to farm some loot.
If you haven’t redeemed any SHiFT codes yet, now is the time to do so; Skeleton Keys will open chests full of awesome loot and, most often, legendary items. So use SHiFT codes whenever you see one available to redeem!
Next, you’ll want to try out the farming bosses. Bosses are more likely to drop a legendary item than your standard enemy, and it’s pretty easy to try and grab one over and over again until that nice legendary loot drops.
Take Banshee in Weepwild Dankness for example. This is one of the first bosses you’ll encounter in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Once you beat them and successfully complete their questline, you can return to them, kill them again, leave, and kill them again. You can do this over and over until a legendary item drops, and it’s also a great way to rack up some XP for your character while you’re at it.
Best Legendary Weapons and Protections in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
There are hundreds of quirky and downright ridiculous weapons in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, as is tradition with Borderlands games. However, out of all the legendary weapons on offer, here are a few that we think will be a lot of fun.
Despite Ruby Proliferation
With this particular Legendary, which is honestly the gun to end all guns, you can fire three bullets at once and clear mobs pretty quickly. Additionally, fired bullets will deal damage for five seconds, so damage is always dealt when you reload or switch weapons. It also restores your health when you deal damage, which is pretty good considering it still deals damage!
Although I don’t have this spell yet, it’s a spell I hope I can grab if I’m lucky. The Barrelmaker of Felicity literally lets you throw barrels at enemies, while dealing bonus damage and slowing them down with gel, making survivors easier targets. This one is more fun than anything else, but it seems to have a great AoE, so could do a fun grenade-like spell.
Maced Rescue Keeper
This room is fun enough to counter those pesky skeletons that like to melee you, and it’s also a sweet Star Wars Easter egg. The shield will deal melee damage to enemies fighting you, depending on your melee weapon, and it also has the ability to absorb enemy bullets while granting you a slight resistance to fire damage.
Slammin’ Salmon from Mirith
This particular melee weapon is definitely more for show than damage, but who uses their melee weapon? so often anyway? Taking on the visual appearance of a fish, you can now slap your enemies using this piece of salmon. To add, it’s also very effective against armor and inflicts poison status on your targets, so that’s pretty useful!
