In Borderlands 2 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, the new Badass system is a nice upgrade that gives you bonuses to all of the characters you play. This makes playing through the game multiple times a lot faster than normal.
If you want to get some of the easiest Badass tokens you can get, there are a few that will take a little time and give you some decent Badass ranks for your efforts.
Badass Ranks from Trading
You can receive 166 Badass ranks from trading with someone 50 times. Sign into a co-op game with a friend, and initiate a trade. You don’t even have to actually trade anything, just open up a trade and have both characters hit the Trade button. You can do this 50 times fairly quickly. If you don’t have a friend to play with, then just sign into co-op with an alternate profile and trade with them instead. It will take a bit longer since you have to manage both controllers, but it’s worth it.
Badass Ranks from Dueling
You can receive 166 Badass ranks from dueling someone 50 times. Play co-op with a friend, take off any mods or shields, and keep beating each other up until you get your Badass tokden. It will take a while, but it’s worth it. If you don’t have a friend to play with, then just sign into a co-op game with an alternate profile and take off their mods and shields and beat them up instead.
Badass Ranks from Looting Purple Weapons
You can receive 166 Badass ranks from picking up 20 purple weapons. The easiest way to do this is with my unlimited golden keys trick. You’ll need access to at least one golden key, which you can get at least one free golden key one right away fairly easily.
