What is Moonshot farming?

When ever I go back to kill The Warrior I just shoot him till he goes down is there another way to do it?

Main storyline mission: Kill warrior. Do not moonshot him. Die by jumping into lava. Autosave (personally I think dying is unnecessary and perhaps you can just save and quit, but I can't confirm if that works the same).

Load up the game, load a 2nd player on splitscreen. Player 1 (your main character) does nothing. Player 2 (doesn't matter if its a new character that is level 1) goes off and activates the moonshot. Collect loot (high chance that one of five* oranges will drop, idk, something like 50%+ chance). Go into badass menu, disable, then re-enable badass stats. It saves ONLY on player 2. Player 1 signs out, game is reset. Sign back in on player 1 and repeat.

* there is a very small percent chance you will also get some other oranges, but don't bet on it too much.

Anyway, I got about 20 or so oranges, mainly variants of the CC, Flakker, Volcano, and lots of Impalers. I got just 2 Leeches, and 1 Neogenator. I got sick of all the CCs and Flakkers and finally decided to stop and save it (so I can no longer moonshot farm and move on).

Oh so now that I'm on TVHM I'd have to wait? The first time you kill him you have to do something on the console to finish him off then? I can't remember what the Moonshot was.

After the Warrior goes down, your next mission objective is to activate the Moonshot (the console button) which fully kills him.

Yes you only can do moonshot farming during the mission. And besides, all farming should be done in TVHM anyway, so yeah you'll need to get to the end of the game.

Ok well I've only just started TVHM and I don't have any friends who play this apart from people who have gone to play COD and refuse to play any other game.

Currently level 34 I think.
