Ok so I have only had this game since last week. Im at 31 with my gunzerker. I also decided to get Mr Torgue DLC today. I have seen a lot of talk of farm Pyro Pete for legendary weapons. Why is he so popular to farm? He really wasnt that hard. Is there something I am missing here? Cause I think there is lol

You beat Pyro Pete. The boss everyone likes to farm is Pyro Pete the Invincible, a new raid boss unlocked when you beat the Torgue DLC.

He's popular to farm because he routinely drops legendaries. After killing him around 40 times, he's dropped these for me:

Pitchfork
Fabled Tortoise (2)
Kerblaster
The Cradle
Legendary Mechromancer Mod
Legendary Siren Mod

Much better drop rates for legendaries than any other boss.

It is his drop rate. In my personal time farming him i get a drop 1 in 5.

I've gotten the Emperor and the B!tch out of him before. Unfortunately, his drop rate is really low on E-Techs..

he's the most consistent farm as others have said. I've gotten everyone's legendary mod as well as countless other legionaries. 3 B*****s have come from him alone. Best dude to farm in my opinion.

Also do you have to be level 50 to get legendaries?

Legendary gear can drop at any level.

And Pete is popular because he saves people from having to play the rest of the game.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.
