Borderlands 3 is ready for five weeks of celebration

1 min read

After a rocky start that was on par with the turbulence that resulted in me breaking several of my nails when I was kicked out of Johannesburg two weeks ago, Borderlands 3 is turning out to be one of my favourite games of the year. Recent patches have begun smoothing the loot ‘n shoot road over, the grind to math harder against ever-increasing badass enemies is always addictive and Mayhem Mode is where I spend most of my time kicking and screaming when a Loot Tink scarpers off.

That’s not all though! While I’m working on my Moze build and eyeing a run as a Siren next, Borderlands will be kicking off a month of celebrations in October. The party is simple: Rock up to revel in ten years of Borderlands, earn rad loot. Every week will have a different event, with various prizes up for grabs. Here’s what the schedule looks like according to Gearbox via GamesRadar:

  • Week 1 (October 1-7): Bonus Boss Loot!
  • Week 2 (October 8-14): Rare Spawn Hunt!
  • Week 3 (October 15-21): Show Me the Eridium!
  • Week 4 (October 22-28): Mayhem on Twitch!
  • Week 5 (October 29 – November 4): Spooky Surprise!

From there, players will be able to take another run at Borderlands 3 bosses and can earn various Legendary-class loot drops along the way. Here’s what they have up for grabs and no the Tyreen one is not a typo that’s genuinely what she’ll drop when you defeat her:

  • Mouthpiece – Gatling Gun
  • KillaVolt – Brainstormer
  • Gigamind – Nagata
  • Katagawa Ball – Rectifier
  • Katagawa – Legendary class mods (all Vault Hunters)
  • Rampager – Kill-o’-the-Wisp
  • Warden – Echo
  • GenIVIV – Ten Gallon
  • Aurelia – Creeping Death
  • Graveward – Earworm
  • Pain and Terror – Legendary class mods (all Vault Hunters)
  • Troy – Nova Berner
  • Tyreen – Bitch

I’m reaching level 50 right now with Moze, and some of the weapons I’ve grabbed are ludicrous in nature. Like a Torgue assault rifle that vomits out a beam of burning laser light while also shooting rockets and I love it so dang much. Now to actually find the time to do all this, because October may just the toughest enemy that Borderlands 3 has to offer. That, and Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford’s version of “the truth”.

    Don’t be tempted by the Siren! Zayn is so much fun. Reaching ludicrous speeds and getting ramping damage is stupid amounts of fun. I bar myself from playing on weeknights because I’d get nothing done.

      I been jamming with a friend that’s playing FL4K.
      Holy crap, that skag he can summon is insanely awesome.

        I might do that on my second run. I usually don’t like summoner classes just because I feel they take away from some of the gunplay. That said, without Zayn’s drone I’d be super screwed in some fights

    Randy is one of those people who ascribe to the whole “the truth is what you make of it” vibe. So facts are seen as optional DLC, locked behind lootboxes with an ultra-rare chance.

    Does Fallout 76 still blow Molerat chunks?

    I’ve been playing Siren.
    Gotta be honest, found her to be a bit so-so until I unlocked some of her later level skills.

    Oh, and last night, oh what a joy it was, my Action Skill suddenly decided to stop doing damage of any kind. Had to quit out and reload just to get that right.

      It is sad when your Murder Skill stops working.
