How to make money quickly in Borderlands 3

The key to making money in Borderlands 3 is actually pretty simple and there are a couple of different things you’ll be able to do to make fat stacks of green. Of course, if you’re looking for help getting more Eridium, we can also help with that.

The first way that you can maximize how much money you’re making is by picking up any of the side quests that you come across during your time exploring the various worlds of Borderlands 3. Not only are most of the side quests pretty fun, but they also offer you a pretty substantial reward for very little work. This allows you to constantly bring in cash, even as you play through the main campaign of the game.

Borderlands 3 - sell your lost loot
Gathering up your lost loot and selling it can net you a nice wad of cash for your trouble.

The overall best way to make money, though, is to loot everything. First, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve upgraded your inventory slots. Then, you can head out into the world and start killing, looting, and just all around destroying everything you come across. This is the true Vault Hunter way, and you’re bound to find some nice weapons that will sell for a pretty penny.

Just for a little data point here, I was able to sell out my entire backpack (roughly 30ish slots) and bring in around $100,000. Sure, this isn’t an insane amount of cash when you consider how quickly it can go in Borderlands 3, but it’s a nice chunk of change for very little work.

As I said, it’s very easy to make money quickly in Borderlands 3. The real trick is to just kill and loot everything you come across, then sell the goods you find at the nearest vending machine. Easy as pie, right? For more help make sure you head back over to our Borderlands 3 guide and walkthrough.
