It was back in September 2019 when Borderlands 3 was released, and so far, the game appears to be getting strong. The actual date is September 13, which is five weeks away. To prepare for the big day, mini-events have been put in place for everyone to enjoy.

One of the things that players can expect is the return of Loot the Universe. This is a series of mini-events where players are rewarded with Legendary loot by seeing and shooting planetary sights. Beginning August 12, planets take a turn each week to become the area with better drops. During the event, each of the affected zones of the planets offers a dedicated Legendary weapon type. There’s also a higher chance to get Legendary gear types.

The complete lineup is:

  • Week 1
    • Planet: Pandora
      • Start: August 12 at 12:00 p.m. ET
      • End: August 19 at 11:59 a.m. ET
  • Week 2
    • Planet: Promethea
      • Start: August 19 at 12:00 p.m. ET
      • End: August 26 at 11:59 a.m. ET
  • Week 3
    • Planet: Eden-6
      • Start: August 16 at 12:00 p.m. ET
      • End: September 2 at 11:59 a.m. ET
  • Week 4
    • Planet: Nekrotafeyo
      • Start: September 2at 12:00 p.m. ET
      • End: September 9 at 11:59 a.m. ET

Once Loot the Universe ends, these mini-events will be launching:

  • Mayhem Made Mild
    • Description: Encounter Easy modifiers when in Mayhem Mode.
    • Duration: September 9 to September 16
  • Show Me the Eridium
    • Description: Increased Eridium drops and higher Eridium item discounts
    • Duration: September 9 to September 16

There’s also something being planned for the anniversary day itself though no details have been released so far.

Quick Hotfix

A hotfix for Borderlands 3 was released addressing a couple of issues:

  • Tom and Xam were sometimes not dropping Soulrender
  • Aurelia was sometimes not dropping Juliet’s Dazzle

In addition, players are reminded that Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine has been moved to a new location.

Borderlands 3 is the fourth game in the Borderlands franchise. The game was released in 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Later in the year, the Google Stadia port was launched. Versions for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S were released in November 2020.
