Unique item drops

so this is a topic that has been bothering me back in BL2

i get the idea of unique guns and that they should seem “unique” aka, only being able to appear once per playthrough
but that system doesnt work in a game like borderlands and i was dashboard farming the fibber a lot and reset missions etc.

with all the different gun parts, elements, anointments, its just ridiculous for good gear to not be able to drop from bosses

you are really just encouraging players to use programs to manipulate save files and shut down-restart-game farming

This isn’t an appropriate place to discuss how or why people choose to cheat.
