Social distancing has become the byword in this strange times. To capitalize on this unfortunate, but necessary trend, Borderlands 3 is giving players a chance to connect and socialize with each other despite being physically apart. Borderlands 3 launched its Co-op Loot Drop Event last March 27 and it is expected to run until April 30.

While the Co-op Loot Drop Event is going to last a month, it appears that won’t be everything going on in Borderlands 3. There’s also the Door Busters Mini Event which started on March 27 as well, but ends on April 2. In this mini-event, there’s going to be Legendary items hidden in with the usual items sold in vending machines. Once the mini-event ends, there’s going to be another event that replaces it. That means for the whole month, players get to experience two events.

If you think that’s not enough, Borderlands 3 still has you covered. The game is going to send everyone themed seasonal items offered in the prior Bloody Harvest event, as well as Holiday events. This is especially good for those who missed them the first time around. After all, who wouldn’t want the level 57 version of the Juliet’s Dazzle Legendary Assault Rifle? Be sure to log-in and check your mailbox before April 30 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Still not satisfied? The SHiFT code below gives you 10 Golden Keys. Hurry as it’s only available until April 11 at 2:59 a.m. ET.
