Yes sure, Little Tina’s Wonderland has an end goal. Apparently you have the task of completing a main story, something about saving the world and defeating the great bad villain and blah blah blah. But come on, we all know what that is genuine The point is: to find a wealth of kickass loot. Let’s help.

Like Border areasthe series of loot shooters from which it sprang, loot is the driving force in Little Tina’s Wonderlandand may occur in one of five levels of rarity: white (common), green (unusual), blue (rare), purple (epic), and gold (legendary). But where the previous post, 2019’s Borderlands 3overflowing players with heavy rains of gold prey, Wonderland is more of a cloudy day.

The result is that gold is plundered Little Tina’s Wonderland feels legitimately worthy of his level of rarity where one hears ch-CHING of a gold pistol drop is enough to immediately turn your head. (Data point: During my 20-hour campaign, I found just that fire legendary items.) But there are a number of methods that can help you quickly fill your inventory with more legendary weapons, shields, class mods, melee weapons, and other gold tier than you can handle. Here’s where to start.

Find the old obelisks

Forget agricultural managers. Seek out instead old obelisks, stray structures tucked away from the beaten path. Interacting with an obelisk kickstarter a battle challenge: a few waves of cannon fodder, followed by a boss. Once defeated, each obelisk boss has a chance to lose a piece of gold.

There are 11 obelisks everywhere Wonderland, each associated with a specific biome. The people at Achievement Squad put together a terrific video review highlight where each one is and how to get to it. Or, if you are more of a text-based student, here are some written instructions:

  • Queen’s Gate: It’s unavailable until you’ve completed the “Emotion of the Ocean” campaign mission. Then, for narrative reasons I do not want to ruin, a new piece of land opens up on the west side of the map, quite easy to get to from the starting point of the alley.
  • Mount Craw: From the Furious Gorge Expressway, drop to the lowest level in the region and walk all the way to the other side of the lake.
  • Weepwild Dankness: You encounter this naturally during the “Thy Bard, With a Vengeance” campaign mission on your way through the region. (If you miss it, it’s just northwest of the Busted-Ass Ruins resort.)
  • Tangledrift: On the primary (floating) island, there is a (floating) peninsula located halfway between the two fast travel destinations.
  • Wargtooth Shallows: From the Recent Beach quick travel point, go up the hill and go left at the junction.
  • Drowned Abyss: On the map of the region, you will see a cul-de-sac cave all the way off the beaten path, just west of Dry’l’s Gallery Expressway.
  • Crackmast Cove: East of the Saunty Sailor Expressway, there is a cave behind a waterfall.
  • Karnok’s Wall: From The Ribs Express Travel Resort you can drop down to a ledge below. That’s where the obelisk is.
  • Sunfang Oasis: Once you enter the region, just hug left until you enter a path that leads to a dead end.
  • Ossu-Gol Necropolis: Probably the easiest obelisk to find. As you make your way through the main mission, you encounter a space that makes you jump between the ramparts over a pool of miasma. Jump into the pool, then jump into the chamber to your right.
  • The Fearamid: In the Ruling Core area, at the basement level, go straight down the hall with a dead end on your map.

Although there is no guarantee of getting legendary loot from an obelisk boss, in my experience the fall rates seem quite high. (Anecdotally, for example, I’ve only had one obelisk fight where a gold piece of gear has not fallen.) Even better, from the obelisk in Crackmast Cove you have a chance to earn Liquid coolinga pistol considered of a long time Border areas players who the current best gun in Little Tina’s Wonderland.

Complete chaos chamber running

Chaos Chamberthat thoroughly engaging postgame mode of Little Tina’s Wonderland, is practically a guaranteed method of finding a wealth of legendary prey. At its core is the Chaos Chamber Border areas distilled to its essence: You run through a series of chambers with gradually more challenging firefights. While playing, you will earn diamond crystal chips. You can use these on different buffs or difficulty levels. Or, if you reach the end of a run, you can spend 500 shards on a loot drop associated with a particular category of gear, which very often spawns a legendary item.

So it deserves a bit of risk-reward strategic thinking: If you can complete a run without spending any shards on buffs, you will end up with a lot to spend, easily finishing a run with 2,000 shards or more – in other words, at least four rolls on gear drop.

Enter Shift codes

Change codes has existed since the dawn of time (or, uh, the beginning of Border areas). Border areas games run on Gearbox’s proprietary Shift service, which forces you to set up a (free, don’t worry) account in exchange for such perks as the ability to play online with your friends or enter really long strings of alphanumeric code for various game prizes . IN Wonderlandyou get skeleton keyswhich allows you to open a coffin in Brighthoof, the main hub city. (It’s right on the mezzanine by the main stairs. Can’t miss it.)

The mail menu in Tiny Tina's Wonderlands shows a redeemable skeleton key.

You can enter codes on Shift’s website via your web browser, or you can do it directly in the game, although it’s a bit tedious to type all those letters with a controller. Once you have started one Wonderland save, open the main menu – not the one in the game – and select social submenu, and then thumb over to Move tab, enter your Shift code and click “redeem”. Then go to mail tab where you can see all skeleton keys (including any equipment you may have earned from non-standard versions of Wonderland). If you click on them, a skeleton key is automatically added to your inventory; you can see how many you have in the lower right corner of your stock screen.

There are a handful of reservations. Codes seem to carry between the characters, but they appear to be linked to your account, so you can only redeem each one once per. account. (Which makes sense, to get around a slight agricultural duplication.) They also have time-limited expiration dates.

Senior employees at Gearbox, who develop Border areas, will regularly tweet codes. But one kind soul created an automated Twitter bot who searches the web and posts the codes. Here’s a freebie. It expires on April 18, 2022:


Personally, redeeming skeleton keys is my least preferred method of finding the best weapons in the game. Fiddling with a console keyboard app is always annoying – even if the PlayStation trackpad makes it a bit easier – and typing a lot of letters and numbers makes me feel like the prizes inside were legally earned. But hey, free exchange. Is not that what it’s all about?
