Borderlands 3 Celebrates Birthday with Two-Day Blowout

Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday! Gearbox Software

Borderlands 3 is celebrating its second anniversary today. To make things fun for everyone, there’s a limited-time mini-event happening now.

It’s none other than the Loot Monster Mayhem. This mini-event offers increased spawn rates for loot variant enemies. As an added bonus, the Hammerlock's Legendary Hunts reward Bekah Assault Rifle is going to be added to the loot pool. Included as well is the Earworm Assault Rifle from 2019's Boss Week.

Now for those who want to take a break from blowing up enemies or collecting loot, they can look for Maurice's Black Market Vending Machine. Once found, players can get some Legendary freebies thanks to everyone's favorite Saurian.

Just a reminder, this mini-event ends September 15 at 11:59 a.m. ET.

Cosmetic Items

As part of the birthday celebration, cosmetic gifts are being handed out, and these are:

  • Popsychle Vault Hunter Skin
  • Pain Freeze Weapon Trinket
  • Field Trip ECHO Device Skin

To get the three cosmetic items mentioned, players simply need to redeem the SHiFT code below:


Don’t forget that each code can only be redeemed once per SHiFT account.

It won’t be a birthday without a grand gift for everyone right? How about a Diamond Key? Those who have this key get access to the Diamond Chest as well as the room full of loot aboard Sanctuary III. To get the Diamond Key, just redeem the code below:

A Stadia port was launched later in the year. Versions for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S were released in November 2020. The game has received mainly favorable reviews and initial sales were the highest in the series.
