How to Farm Infinite Eridium

  • Note: Eridium is a rare mineral resource used for purchasing the highest quality weapons at the Black Market in Sanctuary. It can also be used to purchases Bank, Ammo Capacity, and Backpack upgrades.
  1. When you reach the artic region of Three Horns Valley, find the fast-travel terminal. North of the terminal, you can locate an area called the Bloodshot Stronghold.
  2. Before going inside, find a unique boss monsters called Bad Maw inside a hideout. When he’s defeated, he’ll always drop Eridium.
  3. Next, enter the Bloodshot Stronghold. When you’re inside, bring up the menu to save and quit.
  4. Reload your game. Fast-travel to Three Horns, kill Bad Maw again, and keep collected Eridium.
  5. Rinse and repeat to get as much as you want, or if you lose patience. Happy hunting!
  6. Warning: This will stop working after completing a rescue mission leading to the Stronghold. After completing the mission, Badmaw will no long drop special loot. [Thanks to Recondite in the comments.]

Note that this only works until you’ve completed the mission that leads you to the Stronghold; once you rescue (a certain entity whose name I won’t spoil), Bad Maw no longer has any special drops.

I’m at the very end of the game and it still works for me. Just fast travel to Bloodshot Stronghold, walk out into Three Horn Valley, he literally right there, kill him, walk back into Bloodshot Stronghold, save, quit, and reload. He will be there again!
