During my first full play of the game, I accepted any mission as soon as it was available then sold the resulting item for a quick profit. Sadly, it wasn't until after completely finishing my first play-through that I finally learned the true value of the majority of one-time-only quest items (Evil Smasher anyone?).

So is there a way to start a new game, quickly get to TVHM to accept level 50 missions? Additionally, could I just accept the quests with my level 50 char in a new game, or will the mission just scale to the host level?

@Iszi This glitch... –  Katustrawfic Mar 4 '13 at 19:11
    
@Iszi there's an extremely overpowered exploit for it –  Ben Brocka Mar 4 '13 at 19:12
    
@BenBrocka Same link but I like your wording better –  Katustrawfic Mar 4 '13 at 19:16
    
Accept the quest, complete it, turn it in, if you don't like the reward alt+f4/xbox guide button/ps button out of the game so it doesn't save, repeat untill satisfied with the reward. –  Kevin Mar 16 '13 at 4:24

You only get a quest reward once per playthrough per character. This means there's only one chance for a level 50 Evil Smasher. If you join someone else's game and re-complete a mission, you will not get rewards for that mission again.

So is there a way to start a new game, quickly get to TVHM to accept level 50 missions?

No, not without save file editing. And my limited attempts at messing with Gibbed's editor have been unsuccessful. And a playthrough with a hacked level 50 character from start to completing THVM will still take several hours.

Additionally, could I just accept the quests with my level 50 char in a new game, or will the mission just scale to the host level?

Missions are complicated. It seems to find a way to always give you the lowest possible quest reward; if you've already taken the mission, it seems to give you the item at the level you took that mission, ignoring the host's mission level. I'm not 100% sure about that though, confirmation would be nice.

So in short I have to grind a new character to level 50? Is there a way to save-scum and turn in quests more than once so I only have to grind once? –  Katustrawfic Mar 4 '13 at 20:05
    
@DomenikVanBuskirk not 100% sure what you mean by grinding, you mean a trick like this? –  Ben Brocka Mar 4 '13 at 20:08
    
That would be perfect. And by grind I besically mean that I only want to get one character to 50 and do the quests once. Not get multiple chars to 50 if the item I DO get isn't what I wanted. –  Katustrawfic Mar 4 '13 at 20:13
    
@DomenikVanBuskirk with the exception of picking the wrong reward (when there are 2 choices) or the element being wrong, there's not too much variation between rewards. I think most Unique rewards have mostly predefined parts, element being the most significant variation (if possible) –  Ben Brocka Mar 4 '13 at 20:20
    
The only weapons I found useful for those quests with unique weps were The Evil Smasher (for the insane glitch) and Rubi (for insane health regen). –  lumbricus lubricant Mar 4 '13 at 22:56

If you complete the game, there should be a harder mode. Play through in that one to the same quest, you just wont have access to teleportation. either way, if you start a new game on the easier difficulty or the harder, you have to play through til you reach the mission.
