Wink New easy fast big money method

This is a good method to make quick money i just run into. I was making use of the glitch at the Ghost Hideout were the Comet Bloom keeps respawning when you enter and leave the ghost hideout. It's the flower just before you go on the bridge on the right side. Do this like 10x times or more if you want even quicker cash. Now go to Halek Hagar and sell the flowers for 65$ each, press X and buy them back for 43$ each, so 22$ per flower profit. Repeat this step by pressing x again. So when you have 10 flowers in your inventory, you make 220$ in less then 10 seconds. This glitch saves you a lot of time compared to the engineering money glitches.

When you have enough money, be sure that your final step is to buy the flowers back from him. They will dissapear from his store if you return later on when you have loaded a new town/level.
This way you keep the easy money trick in your your pocket, when needed later on.

Good luck making money

PS: All credits for the respawning Comet Bloom flower goes to GEEN0, thanks for that great glitch.

Definitely a good find.

Just FYI, for people worried about nightmare playthroughs, you will have plenty of money to buy stuff. I never ran out of money. Someone mentioned in another thread that the developers probably wanted players to have fun with the sentry bots, etc., so didn't make lack of money a big deal. Not sure if true, but definitely felt that way.

Same here, been there, looked around and nothing, i do remember picking it when doing a quest for an old guy, so i'm thinking that it only respawns when doing the quest or before you finish the quest.....

Gotta admit, this is awesome. : D assuming the flower actually respawns, considering the seeds of doubt in above posts.

EDIT: I'm at the VERY beginning of the game and I'm thinking you have to have that Comet Bloom quest active for it to be spawning there.

In my game, the plant is there but I can't take the flowers. I see the cactus but there are no purple flowers on it. What am I missing?

well the plant is not respawning for me. Probably because ive already picked it and saved the game.

Hopefully the rocket trick works.

I picked up the flower in between saves a couple off times and it still keeps respawning.

When there are no flowers on the plant, try and go into the ghost hideout first then return to the flower. This should work.

I am at the point of the main story about to enter the Bash Tv for the first time and look for some dr kvasir, but I have completed all other side missions in my game
Already covered the flower part yesterday morning, but nice addition with the buying and selling part

Flower is not respawning, picked it and have been in and out of the ghost hideout multiple times and its just not coming back, I have not triggered the comet blossem quest yet either so either there are other factors involved in getting it to respawn or im picking the wrong comet blossem which i highly doubt.

No idea why it works for some and not for others. My current active mission is authority prison. I will try earlier saves to see if it keeps working for me.

Didn't work for me either; not even a plant around anywhere. BUT i did have one in my inventory already, so, while not nearly as lucrative as having 10 of these, i can still get several hundred dollars in just a few minutes with just the one i have. This is easily enough to buy anything i need and re-stock ammo. have over 500 pop rockets and other various ammos and didn't take much time at all.

if you aren't having any luck with this, check your inventory and, as long as you have at least one of these, you're set. Unfortunately, I do not recall where i even grabbed the one i do have from in the first place. May have been the sewer next to Wellspring (the treasure pile), but not sure.

I couldn't get the flower to respawn in any way until now. When I accepted a Job Board from Wellspring that asked me to look for a missing person at the ghosts hideout for some reason I don't understand the flower was there, and now when I enter and exit the hideout the flower keeps respawning.

I recorded this video with my phone, so excuse the crappy quality.

I can't get it to respawn either, so I'm assuming that since I picked it at the beginning of my game and now just trying to do the glitch, that this is why I can't get it to work. Because I'm too far into the game or due to that I finished both Ghost Hideout missions.

EDIT: It's working for me now. I went into the Arc Sewers cleaned it out and then got a job from the job board to go back there and clean the muties out of it permanently, so I decided to go back to the Ghost Hideout and there it was blooming again. So I did the glitch and it worked. Too bad though they weren't worth $650 a piece instead of $65.

The comet bloom wasn't pickable until I started the missing person job

Saved my game at that point and tried to get it to respawn but it failed to do so when I entered and left either the ghost hideout or the wasted garage exit.

I reloaded my save, left the comet bloom alone, and completed the missing person job.

Entering and leaving the ghost hideout still didn't work, but entering and leaving the wasted garage exit did finally cause the bloom to respawn

EDIT: Stops working until the comit respawns later on in the game if you don't leave a comet behind when your finished for the time being...

EDIT: Damn it. Why the hell did they patch it... now it sells for $35 and it costs $43 to buy back. What kind of bs is this. Does the Viper rockets method still work later in the game?

---

Has this been patched? I cannot get it to work at all anymore. Really frustrating because I want to stock up on bandages and pop rockets.
