To get this achievement, you need to insert three weapons into a grinder and get a legendary (orange-rarity weapon) to pop out.

Now there's good news and bad news. Good news is that, unlike other grinder combinations where you need the three of the same type of gun to be able to grind, this just requires three of ANY kind of gun. Bad news, I believe it requires 3 orange-rarity guns to be able to work. I tried multiple times with the purple weapons I obtained from the golden chest in Concordia and only got purple weapons each time. If someone could confirm this that would be great.

The hard part will be getting the orange-rarity items. Your easiest bet is to try and grind guns because they are the easiest (in my opinion) legendary drops to receive. And there is one readily available to unlock once you get 2500 badass points, which is Excalibastard, located in Stanton's Liver (If you need more info see the guide for The Gun In The Stone achievement). The other two, unfortunately, you will have to find on your own!

Once you have 3 legendary items, pop them into the grinder and it will spit out a legendary item as well, giving you your achievement. If you aren't a fan of the gun you receive, or you want to keep your other legendary weapons you have to grind, right after the achievement unlocks just reset or turn off your xbox and you will have all your old guns plus a new achievement.

If there's any way I can improve the solution let me know please

*EDIT*: Sorry, I know I listed Excalibastard in this solution and I know you can't use it in the 360 version, but I should have mentioned I included it in the solution because it was one of the three I used and can provide a video if anyone doubts. Idk if I got lucky or if it can be only ground with two other legendaries or what, but just so that its out there that you shouldn't rule it out in possible grinder combos.

Also, thanks to ParallaxDemon and a Good Gamertag for mentioning the different combos that worked for them to produce a legendary item, so far these are the general combos:

-3 Oranges
-2 Oranges and a Purple
-1 Orange and 2 Purples
-3 Purples
