How to Farm Badass Tokens
- To revive a downed player, hold [X/Square] for a few seconds to bring them back to life. Doing this 50 times will net you Badass Tokens.
- To farm this, you’ll need to be able to kill yourself. Find or purchase a Tediore weapon. These, when reloaded, will be thrown and explode.
- Remove any mods and your shields. Stand in a corner, fire the Tediore gun once, then reload. You’ll throw the gun into the corner and blow yourself up.
- Let your partner revive you, or have your teammate do this so you can revive them. 50 revives, and you’ll have some early badass tokens.
- To do this quickly, only try this method just as you begin the game, before you gain many levels. Unequip any stat-boosting mods, and remove their shields.
- To initiate a duel, just melee attack another play. Take turns, at this early point one melee attack should end the duel.
- Defeat each other 50 times to complete this challenge.
- To trade with another player, just hold [B/Circle] for a moment.
- Trades count whether you actually trade anything or not. Just activate “Trade” to complete instead of cancelling out.
- Do that 50 times to complete the challenge with ease.
