Borderlands 3 Lost Loot: How to Reclaim Lost Loot Using the Lost and Found

You can reclaim some of the loot loot you may have missed using the Lost Loot system in Borderlands 3. Here’s how.

While playing Borderlands 3, you’ll likely come across literally thousands of guns. This means that it can be pretty easy to miss some that you’d rather you well, hadn’t. Thankfully there are measures in place that mean it’s possible to reclaim that lost loot. In this Borderlands 3 Lost Loot Guide, we’ll explain how the lost and found works in Borderlands 3, which guns it will pick up, and where to find the lost loot machine.

Borderlands 3 Lost Loot Machine

You’ll unlock the Lost Loot machine once you’ve boarded Sanctuary for the first time. You can find it opposite the Quick-Change booth, outside of the bridge. We’ve included a screenshot of it below:

Which Guns Get Picked For Lost and Found?

The Lost Loot machine in Borderlands 3 picks up some of the loot you leave behind while playing. It will prioritize better loot over more simple loot. For example, it will select orange weapons over purple, and so on. There is a limit to how many items it can pick up though.

Borderlands 3 Lost Loot Full

Your Lost Loot machine aboard Sanctuary can only hold so much. We recommend emptying out whenever you can, and selling the contents. This frees up space for new loot, which will be more of a match for your current level.

Borderlands 3: Increase Lost Loot Found to the Maximum

At the start of Borderlands 3, the Lost Loot Machine will only fire out a small number of items. You can increase this by purchasing Lost Loot SDUs from Marcus’ Munitions. For more info on how to do so, head to our Borderlands 3 SDU Guide.
