Borderlands 3 celebrates its anniversary

Borderlands 3 celebrates its anniversary

It's been almost a year since Borderlands 3 was released and Gearbox has been busy during that time releasing additional content for their first-person shooter. The game had a great launch and it was highly anticipated, mainly due to the popularity of the previous installments in the series, but Borderlands 3 has managed to gather a lot of adepts by itself with its frenetic gameplay. Now that its anniversary is getting closer, Gearbox has prepared a lot of events to celebrate it. These will start on July 30th and will last through six weeks, in which Borderlands 3 players will be able to earn extra rewards while playing the game, including the content related to the DLC in the Borderlands 3 Season Pass.

This is the event calendar:

  • ECHOcast Overload (9 AM PT July 30 to 8:59 AM PT August 6) - Better chance of scoring loot during Rare Chest Events in the ECHOcast Twitch extension
  • Bonus Boss Loot (9 AM PT August 6 to 8:59 AM PTAugust 13) - Most bosses have an increased chance to drop Legendary loot
  • Loot Monster Mayhem (9 AM PT August 13 to 8:59 AM PT August 20) - Increased spawn rates for Loot variant enemies
  • Show Me The Eridium (9 AM PT August 20 to 8:59 AM PTAugust 27) - Increased Eridium drops and Eridium item discounts
  • Mayhem Made Mild (9 AM PT August 27 to 8:59 AM PT September 3) - All Easy modifiers in Mayhem Mode
  • Making It Rain (9 AM PT September 3 to 8:59 AM PT September 10) - Enemies drop more in-game cash



Other than the events, the first anniversary ofBorderlands 3 has already brought a new patch that introduced a new way of spending your hard-earned eridium. You can spend it on the Veteran Rewards machine in Sanctuary III to get rare mission rewards (hello, Lyuda) and also upgrade the Fabricator gun to a new version that will guarantee you a legendary weapon drop at the cost of more eridium per shot.

Get ready for a month and a half of extra rewards while you play Borderlands 3. If you don't have the game yet, it's the best moment to get it at the best price in our comparator and take advantage of the anniversary celebration.
