Borderlands 3: How To Get Crossroad SMG

Last Updated on October 21, 2019

If you are looking to farm one the best legendary SMG’s in the game, then this guide is for you. Today’s guide will cover how you can obtain the Crossroad SMG easily using a few farming methods.

Cutsman, Lyuda, Lucian’s Call, Flakker and Crossroad were among the weapons that received a nerf with the recent hotfix, which sparked outrage. Players started posting raging threads on the borderlands forums and Borderlands subreddit. Some even started throwing tantrums such as “this game isn’t destiny”.

Crossroad was among the less affected weapons, only the accuracy has been affected and the projectile number has been decreased from 4 to 3. Enough rambling about other things, the point is the weapon is still good enough for the end-game and still can out-DPS most shotguns in the game. Let’s find out how you can obtain it.

Methods To Farm Crossroad SMG – Borderlands 3

Crossroad is a world drop, that means it can drop from any enemy in the game. This might sound hit and miss but it can be made efficient with farming a few particular bosses, specifically in TVHM mode (Mayhem 2 and 3). Repeating the boss elimination process guarantees at least one legendary every time, you just have to pray to RNG gods to drop one of these for you.

Farming Graveward for Legendary Loot

This boss is one of my favourites for farming legendaries, with the right Moze and FL4k builds, you can take down this boss with ease. The boss can drop any legendary in the game, but since there are no guarantees of farming this particular gun we’d recommend you to head to this boss. As mentioned earlier, if you’re playing in TVHM mode, you shouldn’t have trouble farming legendaries.

Farm Chupacabratch Mini-Boss

Another great place to farm for legendaries is the Chupacabratch mini-boss. If you’ve played the storyline already, I am pretty sure you’ve encountered this boss at some point. Chupacabratch is located on Athenas in the Cemetry near the Brewery.

The boss is really easy to take down, just take a powerful gun such as The Butcher and melt him. Reload map and repeat, keep doing this until you get what you want.

Farm Loot Tinks

Loot tinks are a great way of farming legendaries, I myself was able to obtain many legendaries when I started. However, the efficiency has been toned down after the nerfs made by Gearbox.

There’s a workaround though, just load the game in offline mode and you’ll have the same pre-nerf efficiency. Many people don’t know about this, but the game works exactly fine in offline mode.

I am really sad about the 70% damage reduction on the hex grenade. Hope Gearbox doesn’t hit everything with their nerf hammer and revert a few of them, I haven’t been playing the game for more than a week now because most of my builds are broken. It takes hours or days to farm for something and they just end up nerfing it.

Hope this guide helped you out, do comment and let me know.
