Make a comment if it was helpful for you!

What you need:
You want a freaking awesome automatic weapon with a great Fire Rate! You also want an infinite ammo MOD and a great shield!

Tutorial:
Kill all the turrets on the MINAC and follow him until he open his door to drop claptraps. When he does, shoot even if you don't see any claptrap. This will kill around 50 claptraps every minutes. Repeat this process and pick up as many objects on the floor as you can! You should get your collectibles achievements in no time!

Collectibles Farming Guide

I learned that the weapons I'm using are modded so you cant find them anywhere!

Yup, that's exactly what two friends and I did. Two of us would chase MINAC and make huge piles of crap, while the third stayed back and yelled at us if he found something other than a motherboard. We randomly switched as people finished their collections.

The regular farming method is great for lazy people though. Also, I think our avatars have come to an impass Diamondz...

Thanks for this. Just unlocked my Bobble-Head achievement. It seemed like a lot of the shit that was under the INAC would disappear when he drives over it, but you still get a lot more collectibles this way.

Yeah, I think he tends to drag a lot of stuff around, which would explain why we'd find items in random places.

Interesting method, gonna have to try it out, the passive method isn't yielding enough bobbleheads. FYI, most of the guns showed in that vid are modded (including the one used) crawmerax is NEVER gonna drop those...

To be honnest with you, my friend gave me these guns and he told me he found them by killing crawmerax. I'm actually disappointed...I was sure they were legit!

I kinda figured that was the case, a lot of that sort of thing going around. Any time a weapon has a double name (shredder shredder, bitch bitch, etc) it is modded. Likewise almost any weapon that has the twisted prefix is modded. There's a good thread over at the GBX forum that goes into more detail about how to tell (http://gbxforums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?t=101893).

Yay, thank you so much for this! I just got my last three collectible achievements today using this. It took me about 3-4 hours total of farming to get all the items necessary, but it was far less grueling than restarting maps over and over again.

Nice Twisted Serpens.

I have a nice Madness Hellfire Bitch that has red rarity. It has 200x4 Damage and 20.5 fire rate and x4 Incendiary and it's totally legitimate. You should totally take my guide seriously.

Yeah where did you get that gun....and that shield? Nice video btw.

The shield is called the Impenetrable Ironclad, it's the highest capacity legit shield in the game. The gun is the Twisted Serpens. Both are pearlescent weapons. Check the Knoxx Threads and see if anyone is willing to dupe for you. :uzi::Bounce:

After taking the patch im finding bobbleheads in the environment. I found 3 in about 20 minutes just laying around

where abouts are they just laying around? lol I am getting loads of oil cans and pizzas from this farming method, it's great!

However I've only got one bobblehead in about the last 10 hours of gameplays (and that wasn't through this farming method :() But hopefully I'll have maxed out my pizza and oil cans soon and that'll just leave bobbleheads

this set of acheivments are so lazy!

I can also confirm this farming method works. I spent about three hours in the final boss fight shooting at the claptraps as they exited the MINAC. It took a couple hours for the first achievement to unlock, but within an hour of getting the first one, the other two I was missing unlocked.

I know it's been said by some that the claptrap bobbleheads are the rarest items, but that was the first achievement that unlocked for me, followed by "What a Party!" with "The Lubricator" being last.

I just got the 'Lubricator' and then about an hour later I got 'What a Party!'. I said above that no Bobbleheads were spawning for me, but as soon as I posted that above I went back to the game and I am now the proud owner of 10 Bobbleheads... just 5 to go and I can stop playing this damn DLC!!!

This farming method is definitely the best of all that have been suggested.

This was a great method when I was playing, would get at least 10-15 claptraps when the door opened.

After awhile though, I was going to bed, so I used the other method and hid behind the rock and let the MINAC roll around. When I checked it in the morning there were parts all over the frikin place! Finished all my collectible achievements that way.

Another good excuse is if your wireless controller needs to be recharged, just fire up borderlands, go to the zone, hide out as noted and let the controller charge AND get your goods when you wake up. :woop:

just wanted to add to this. this method is faster then the other (lazy mans way) posted but for any one with out mods you can just destroy all the guns and follow minac around standing next to it (to avoid the lazer) when it stops stand almost in front of the tank treds on either side and the claptraps will kill themselves inside minac. the more that die the more you get. just get out of the way before it moves again and so on and so on

oil cans! in 2 hours of using this method ive only found 2! is it because i have find rare items +2 equipped, and the oil can isnt rare? that seems stupid, but who knows? im good on everything else just damn oil cans:mad:

I should give it a try.. that's a bright idea!

It's different for everyone. I had trouble with the Claptrap Bobbleheads and some are having trouble with the pizzas and the oil cans.
For me, there was tons of oil cans so, the only way is to farm as much as possible!

Huh, I'll give that a try this weekend. Do have ridiculous firerate guns (NOT modded mind you!) so I'll hopefully get mah cheeves this weekend. I need Oil Cans (GODDAMN are they hard to get!) some stuff for "What A Party" and Bobbleheads, but I haven't seen one of those yet!

This is so funny. I did something similar to this and it took me and my brother in law about 4 hours to get all the collectibles achievements. I was gonna post a thread but looks like you already figured this out. Way better method then the other one.

We both had modded shields and pistols so it was pretty easy that way. One person blasts the opening and kills all the clap traps and the other collects the loot. Make sure one of you has a solider with an ammo regeneration mod.

Funny the rarest item for me was pizza's.

I don't think I've ever found a single oil can, and I need to get 25 of them. I was trying this method on playthrough 1 with my level 45 soldier. Maybe I should try the other farming method(other thread) and just hide in the corner while the Kamakazies blow their own asses up.

I've found a shitload of 3D Glasses, Panties and Fish. 3 Bobbleheads and 5 pieces of pizza?

This takes forever but I like this active-farming method. I'm level 69 (playthrough 1) and using a strong combat rifle for this, no mods.

AR490.0 Glorious Massacre (Damage-327, Accuray 93.9, Fire Rate 8.8)
with fire element x4
+100 Magazine Size (124 shots before reload)
+76% Recoil Reduction
+70% Accuracy

The only thing I've noticed so far if I kill them all very fast, there are too many items at one spot and when MINAC drives over them or the bombs he left explode near the collectibles a few simply dissapear. Looks like a glitch to me. So either I have to pick 'em up fast or get the things that are left. I want to avoid getting overrun.

So far I'm looking at:

6 Pizza, 10 Oil Can and 4 Bobbleheads. Oh well...

Edit: My end-stats after 5h of farming with this method:

Pizza - 18
Panties - 35
Clapfish - 37
3D Glasses - 35
Oil Can - 25
Bobblehead - 16

I died a looot but then again I also had enough money hehe. One more DLC (the best) to go and I'm done with this game. :)

Well as I already posted in another thread here I'd say both CLAP TRAP'S NEW ROBOT REVOLUTION (because of the fun) and The Secret Armory of General Knoxx (because of CRAWMERAX' awesome loot drop).

I checked everywhere, every single chest on PLAYTHROUGH 2 and Crawmerax has without a doubt the best rare weapon/mod drop ever.

Gonna have to try this 'active' farming method for pizzas. I've done the other version (hiding behind the rock) three or four times for a total of probably 15-18 hours. Last night was the longest (8.5 hrs) and I STILL didn't get all the pizzas I needed (only found 3-4 among thousands of items. Did finally pop the Lubricator achievement though =)
