Gearbox has unveiled the launch date and the end date for the Bloody Harvest Halloween event in Borderlands 3. As it turns out, the event will take place from late October to early December. That’s a lot of breathing room for a seasonal event. Hope it has enough content to back that large a window up.
So, when can you expect to enjoy the spooky festivities of Bloody Harvest in Borderlands 3? Well, according to a post on the Borderlands website, and the event trailer below, it’s gonna take place from Thursday, October 24th, to Thursday, December 5th. This is probably the longest Halloween event that I’ve ever heard of. Which makes me worry a bit: what is the grind gonna be like? Is the length of the event just for kicks, or because it’s gonna be very grindy? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
But enough doom and gloom, what can you expect from this event? Well, as we’ve covered before, the whole thing begins at Sanctuary III, at the new vendor Maurice. So, yeah, you’ll have to push through the game’s main story until you reach Sanctuary III to access Bloody Harvest. Maurice will give you a repeatable mission, which will send you to kill Haunted enemies. These enemies drop Hecktoplasm, and you’ll need those to open the portal to Heck, where the event takes place. Yes, those are the real names, because Gearbox just can’t help themselves when it comes to getting on my nerves.
Once you do make it to Bloody Harvest, the real fun begins. There’ll be new enemies to battle, even including a whole new spooky boss. When it comes to unlockable items, you’ll be able to get a new weapon skin, a weapon trinket, a new legendary weapon, a shield mod, a grenade mod, and Vault Hunter skins. So, yeah, there’s quite a bit of stuff to do. And you’ll have a ton of time to do it. Have at it.
If you’re having trouble with other things in the game, you might want to check out some of the other guides we’ve written. We’ve listed the locations of Red Chests, Typhon Logs, Dead Claptrap Parts and Hijack Targets. We’ve explored the mission choices, like what happens when you side with Holder or Ramsden in On The Blood Path, or when you tell Rhys to keep or lose mustache in Atlas at Last. We’ve also covered secrets, like the one where you have to open the Holy Broadcast Center locked door.
