Borderlands 3 Best Bosses to Farm

Farming and grinding have been staples of games for decades now. Despite being tedious and time consuming, repeatedly killing enemies is a foolproof way of gaining some much needed experience and weapons. This holds true for Borderlands 3, especially with the game’s multitude of bosses. If players kill these legendary bosses enough, good loot is sure to follow. This guide will take you through some of the best Borderlands 3 bosses to farm. 

Borderlands 3 Best Bosses to Farm Guide

Legendary bosses

There are several candidates scattered across Borderlands 3 that will serve as some of the best bosses to farm. Each one poses different challenges and loot chances. Several factors come into play once players start farming bosses. This list takes a few of the easiest, quickest, and most lucrative into account. Below is a list of the four best Borderlands 3 bosses to farm. 

  • Shiv
  • Captain Traunt
  • Carnivora
  • Tyreen the Destroyer


Shiv is the first boss players will encounter. He’s essentially a slightly tougher version of a regular enemy, making killing him a breeze. While he doesn’t appear to drop any legendary weapons, he does provide some nice experience boosts. 

Captain Traunt

Captain Traunt is an extremely tanky boss. Most of the challenge in fighting him comes from his massive amount of health and shields. The key to beating him is in keeping his shields down. After inflicting enough damage, players can knock out his shields and chisel away at his health. So long as the damage is persistent, his shields won’t replenish. You’ll also have a shot at some nice loot if you’re able to take him down.


Carnivora is a massive car that doesn’t actually deal any damage. Instead, Carnivora spawns in other vehicular enemies in a consistent stream. This on-rails boss is perfect for low effort farming, making it one of the Borderlands 3 best bosses to farm.

Tyreen the Destroyer

Tyreen the Destroyer is the final boss in the Borderlands 3 campaign. Understandably, she’s a legendary boss that puts up a fair fight. She drops some of the best weapons in the game, including the highly sought after King’s Call weapon. However, players should be aware that she won’t go down without a fight.
