Borderlands 3 Rare Spawn Hunt Locations - All 14 locations

When you're not gallivanting about the galaxy with your band of misfit Crismon Raiders, Borderlands 3 is all about collecting the best arsenal of tasty loot - guns, shields, stat buffing mods and artifacts, whatever works. For a limited time there are tons of Rare Spawn Hunt locations for you to find around Pandora and beyond, which give you an extra chance to unearth the scarcest golden trinkets - here's where to find all 14!

Borderlands 3 Rare Spawn Hunt Locations

We've embedded the following video from our friends over at Arekkz Gaming with the exact locations of each spot, if you'd prefer a visual guide. But we'll still list them too:

With all of these rare spawns, they're still not 100% guaranteed to appear. If you head to a specific area and you can't find what you're looking for, you need to load out of the area and then back in again to trigger a respawn:

  • Rakkman - Northeast of Carnivora map on Pandora
  • El Dragon Jr - In Mayhem Mode, at the back of the Leery Hamlet on Eden-6
  • Road dog - Can spawn in the centre of the Splinterlands on Pandora
  • Indo Tyrant - Chance to spawn in the Floodmoor Basin on Eden-6
  • Force Troopers - Small spawn chance on the second floor of the Courtyard of Innovation - near the Typhon Log - at the Atlas HQ on Promethea
  • Demoskaggan - In the east of The Droughts on Pandora
  • The Unstoppable - Found in the centre of the Ambermire on Eden-6
  • Thunk & Sloth - Inside the hangar on the eastern side of Konrad's Hold on Pandora
  • Maxitrillion - On the top floor of The Family Jewel ship in the Voracious Canopy on Eden-6
  • Borman Nates - At the elevated bandit camp near the centre of the Meridian Outskirts on Promethea
  • Princess Tarantella II - Found at the Sifted Mar, which is in the northwest of The Splinterlands on Pandora
  • Mother of Grogans, The Uncorroded, Queen of the Sewer Kingdom - Go to the northwestern area in The Anvil on Eden-6 - this is the same enemy as the Game of Thrones easter egg
  • Red Jabber - Found in the southeast of the Ambermire on Eden-6
  • Urist McEnforcer - In the underground subway area of Lectra City on Promethea

The best Rare Spawn locations to farm in Borderlands 3

Arekkz knows a thing or two about grinding out the best gear, and he's also put together a list of the top 5 best Rare Spawn locations with the most useful drops to maximise your time grinding for:

If you can't - or don't want to - watch the video, they are:

  • Princess Tarantella II - The Splinterlands, Pandora - Drops the "Hive" rocket launcher which synergizes well with Moze
  • Road Dog - The Splinterlands, Pandora - Close to the Princess, so can double up. Drops the Double-penetrating Redline shotgun
  • Red Jabber - Ambermire, Eden-6 - Drops a random, powerful, and rare legendary grenade mod, and can be reached quickly from the nearby fast-travel point
  • Mother of Grogans, The Uncorroded, Queen of the Sewer Kingdom - The Anvil, Eden-6 - Similar to the Jabber, but with Artifacts
  • Force Troopers - Atlas HQ, Promethea - Again, no specific item, but chance to drop a random legendary class mod, which is rare
