    I earned this achievement after about 16 or so hours of playing and doing easy simple challenges. In order to remove Excalibastard from the stone you need at least 2500 Badass Rank.


    This weapon is found in Stantons Liver.

    This video will show you how to get to the weapon.

    NOTE: You can only obtain this weapon once per character, and it scales to the level to which you picked it up!!!! Best to pick it up at lvl 50
    EDIT: og Yeah has confirmed that you can dashboard this achievement so that you can get the weapon later, but the achievement earlier.

    All The PlayersHi, you can only get it ONCE PER CHARACTER, so it will not be there when you back for TVHM

    Calex dEUSIf you want this more than more than once all you do is copy your save to a USB/Cloud load that save get the gun + achievement then give the gun to another profile via split screen. Go back to the original save you will still be able to pick it up say when you are level 50 and you can have the other profile give you the gun for use now.

    I'm probably missing something but the gun itself seems a bit rubbish.

    ScuzzyBunnyFYI, I don't know if this is the result of the recent update, or if it simply hadn't been noticed, but if you are not the host, and the host is lower than 2500 BA, you cannot grab the weapon. I was over 3k in a friends game, and couldn't get it. Had to go back in my own game.

    The Weapon called Excalibastard is located in Stantons Liver. You can reach this Area over Triton Flats. Here a picture from the Location in Stantons Liver.

    to remove the Weapon from the Stone, you need at least a Badass Rank of 2500.
    The most Important Note is, you can only get this Weapon once per Character and the Weaponlevel scales with your Characterlevel. The best Pickup is with Level 50 in True Vault Hunter Mode but if you only want the Achievement, remove the Weapon, hit the Guidebutton and leave the Game to the Dashboard

    Here is yet a Video from the Location with Weaponstats (Level 31) and some "Shoot in the Air" Action

    vSullyAssuming you have the required 2500 badass rank, you can easily abuse the save system to get this weapon repeatedly. Start by copying your main character to a memory unit. Then, start a game with the copy of the character and a level 1 character on a second account. Have your copy of the character grab the gun, then give it to the level one character. Save and quit. No just start a new game with your main version of your character and the level 1 character. You can then move the gun over to your main character and still be able to pull the gun out of the stone with that character at any time. So the next time you want a higher level version of the excalibastard, simply repeat this process and get another copy of it.

    Epsilon FactorWhat is the big deal about waiting to lvl 50 to pick this up? Why not just pick it up as soon as you can?

    This solution does not contain where to find the Excalibastard. I wanted to give a tip on how to farm Badass rank. You can repeatedly earn 91 BAR in about a minute or less, and up to 182 BAR if you have all the items listed below. However, you may not have the items needed to do this and you'll probably have the 2500 BAR from a regular playthrough of the story before concerning yourself with this achievement. However, if you don't have the BAR, or have a Buddy who can help, here is how...

    You will need:
    -15 Legendary items (doesn't matter what, as long as they are orange).*
    -$3 million cash.*
    -A friend or guest account.

    *If you don't have both of these, it's okay. Either of these will gain you BAR. Having both is preferred

    To do this
    I used this same method all the time in Borderlands 2 to boost my BAR. Here's how it works.

    1. Your friend or guest must have the 15 Legendary items and/or $3 million. Whoever is wanting to get Badass Rank must not be the host. Have your friend or alternate account be the host.
    Once that is settled, place the legendary items on the ground to pick up.

    2. Join the game and when it asks you to select a character to play as, create a brand new level 1 character. It can be any class, as long as they are brand new.

    3a. Pick up the 15 legendary items. This will net you 91 Badass rank. You won't be able to carry all 15 because of inventory space, so drop the ones you picked up close by and then pick up the rest. You must pick up 15 different orange items, as picking up the same orange item again won't count and you won't get all the BAR.

    3b. Trade the $3 million from the guest/friend to you. This will net you (another) 91 Badass Rank. Trade the money back.

    4. Once you've done steps 3a and/or 3b, save and quit the game. If you're doing split-screen, press start, and press cn_B to save and quit the game.

    5. Join back in the game. When you get to the character select screen, delete the character you just did this with. You can delete a character by pressing cn_back. Create a brand new character and start again. As long as it is a brand new character that you do this with, you'll keep earning Badass Rank.

    Again, you may not have all the items to do this, but it is a very fast way to boost your BAR, whether you have the achievement or not. The other two solutions have videos showing where to find the Excalibastard. As soon as you pull it from the stone the achievement will unlock.

    Happy boosting.

    So.. All my challenge progress stayed the same, but my badass rank and bonus stats erased.

    When i try to do new character boosting it increases each time, (Each new char has increased BAR.) But when i relog my main character, its still 0... wtf, any idea?

    WestsideSxEoddly it's tracking the cash exchange for BAR but not picking up the oranges, wonder if they patched something or if it tracks if your gamertag ever handled that item at all bleh
