Well, I Guess Two Are Ending
No pun intended, but Borderlands 3 had a pretty eventful 2019. It was rumored, announced, promoted, launched, and given multiple events and content updates, both paid and free alike. With all these things seemingly back-to-back-to-back, fans like your ol’ pal Zane always had something to look forward to from Gearbox. Unfortunately, there isn’t much information on what is next, other than the three remaining story DLCs coming who knows when. For now, all the hardcore fans can do is keep grinding away at whatever next Borderlands 3 event is coming. Fortunately, with the ending of a couple of events, this is a new one starting up today.
From January 16th to 30th, there had been two concurrent events running; the scaling of the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite event and the Farming Frenzy event. The Takedown, which is normally set challenge four top level Vault Hunters, was temporarily scaled to the party, so players could solo it, has now been restored to its original, punishingly difficult ways. The Farming Frenzy event saw an increase in rare enemy spawns and Legendary loot drops. The new Borderlands 3 event, called the Rare Chest Riches Event, will also see an increased chance to reward players with Legendary items.
If you don’t feel like farming the red chests throughout the Borderlands, you can always just jump on Twitch and watch a streamer. Don’t forget: the ECHOcast Extension allows viewers with their Twitch account and Borderlands VIP accounts linked can earn the same loot that streamers find. So, you can let the streamer do all the work while you reap the rewards of this new event. Extra looting, hold the shooting. The Rare Chest Riches Event starts today and runs until February 13th. Borderlands 3 is available on Stadia, PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
