Borderlands 3: How to Make Money Fast

You’ll need cash to buy guns and ammo in Borderlands 3. Here are the best way to get it.

In Borderlands 3, you’ll constantly be earning money, be it for killing enemies or opening certain loot items. You’ll need a lot of money to get by too, as you’ll regularly need to purchase new ammo and weapon upgrades. To help you earn as much money as possible, we’ve put together this Money Making Guide. We’ll show you the best places to get money in Borderlands 3, and let you in on some lesser known methods of raking in the green.

How to Make Money Fast

To help you focus on making money in Borderlands 3, we’ve listed some of the best ways to get it below. We’ll then go into some more detail on each method, and give some advice on where you should spend your time.

  • Open safes and lockers
  • Sell guns
  • Sell Lost Loot
  • Complete side missions

Open Safes and Lockers to Earn Money

One of the easiest ways to earn money in Borderlands 3 is to open the small safes scattered around the world. How much you get appears to be random, though safes will contain exclusively money. Lockers are also a good place to look.

Sell Guns to Earn Money

If you head to a Guns or Ammo vending machine, you can actually sell your weapons. You’ll get a fair price for them, so make sure to hold onto as much as you can before heading back to Sanctuary. You can actually buy back any weapons for the same price you sold them for if you need.

Complete Side Missions to Earn Money Fast

There are plenty of side missions to take on. Most will lead you to a reward room, filled with weapons and money. You’ll also get a certain amount of money upon completion, making activities like Bounty Hunting very lucrative indeed.

Sell Lost Loot For an Easy Cash Boost

This can be accessed from the Lost Loot Vending machine near the bridge of Sanctuary. It will give you loot that you may have left behind, and you can also sell it. This is an easy way to earn money each time you visit Sanctuary, so be sure to check it out.

What is the Best Way to Earn Money

Borderlands 3 can be a pretty bleak place if you don’t have the money to spice things up. You’ll need it to buy new guns, and ammo. Of all the methods detailed above, we think that the Lost Loot sales system is the best bang for your buck. If you’ve found a better way, let us know in the comments below.
