The first seasonal event for Borderlands 3, Bloody Harvest, kicks off later this week in celebration of Halloween. Gearbox Software has revealed the details for Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest, where players can go to “Heck”, kill resurrected enemies and get some sweet new loot in the process.
The Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest event is a whole new zone from Gearbox Software, with a new boss called Captain Haunt which will be found somewhere in the depths of Heck. To get to the new zone, players will first have to progress to the part of the story where you unlock Sanctuary III, so that’s only a few hours in. On your ship, you will find Maurice, a new NPC who will guide you through the Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest seasonal event and those to follow.
The event kicks off on 24 October and runs until 5 November 2019 and it is absolutely free for anyone who owns the game.
Gearbox Software explains how players can go to Heck:
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#EB164D” class=”” size=”20″] When Bloody Harvest begins, Maurice will offer you a repeatable mission that must be completed in order to reach Heck, the spooky setting for Borderlands 3’s Bloody Harvest. Maurice kindly asks that you collect a certain amount of Hecktoplasm, an item that drops from slain Haunted enemies. You’ll encounter Haunted enemies all over the galaxy during Bloody Harvest; you’ll know them by their ghostly green glow. Once you’ve collected enough Hecktoplasm, Maurice will open a portal to Heck aboard Sanctuary III that will transport you to the creepy domain of Captain Haunt and his undead minions.
Once you’ve managed to stop shaking in your boots at the sheer spookiness of Heck, you’ll have to fight your way through an undead army of Maliwan soldiers who are rising from their graves with ambitions of revenge. You’ll also encounter freaky fauna including flying, fire-breathing Rakk-o’-Lanterns and wretched Ratch that’ve gorged themselves on blood. Deep within the depths of Heck lies Captain Haunt, the bony final boss of Bloody Harvest. [/perfectpullquote]
Going to Heck isn’t just for the fun of it either, as there will be several new, Halloween-themed cosmetics to be found, as well as new Anointed Weapons and even a new legendary shotgun called Fearmonger.
