2K and Gearbox Entertainment announced that their shooter series Borderlands 3 will be running a mini-event through February 12th, which can be enjoyed in Weapons Competition mode.
Weapons Competition is a highly challenging roguelike game mode where players must start without existing equipment, passive abilities, and action skills to earn loot, avoid the oncoming storm, and move to the survival point.
This limited time event consists of three mini-events and can be enjoyed by all players with the Base Game and Designer’s Cut DLC or Season Pass 2.
First, the clear sky event runs from 2:00 a.m. on January 22 to 1:59 a.m. on January 29. During this period, all enemies have an increased chance of dropping good loot and the storm narrows more slowly, making exploration and item collection easier.
In addition, the additional extraction event runs from January 29th at 2am to February 5th at 1:59am. During the event period, the probability of the appearance of a Dal box containing equipment exclusively for weapon competition in air support increases significantly, and slots are added to all extraction points, allowing more equipment to be extracted.
The Equipment Rush event runs from 2:00 a.m. on February 5 to 1:59 a.m. on February 12 and increases the probability of rare chests appearing in the weapon competition during that period.
The probability of weapons competition-specific equipment appearing in the green daal box located in the main location of the Storm Blind Complex increases, but at the same time, the rapid progress of the player is required as the storm proceeds faster.
Meanwhile, Borderlands 3’s next-generation upgrade is supported, so you can use the game on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Games and players with the same series of next-generation consoles as existing current-generation consoles can download the next-generation upgrade for free, while players with physical discs from Borderlands 3 use a regular PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X with a disc drive. Should be.
Borderlands 3 is currently available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Steam and Epic Games stores. Detailed information about the game can be found on the official website.
