Gear up for the release of Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt -- the third campaign add-on for Borderlands 2, arriving January 15 -- with special in-game events this weekend!
January 11: The festivities begin today, January 11, with Vault Hunters reporting that various areas of Pandora have seen an influx of powerful shotguns. To join in the fun, simply boot up Borderlands 2 while connected to the internet before the supply runs dry -- based on current conditions, expect the excess to be exhausted at 10:55AM CST / 4:55PM GMT on Saturday, January 12 (What time is that for me?).January 12: Today's forecast? EXPLOSIONS! Keep an eye out for powerful grenade mods -- we hear they're rather abundant today. To join in the fun, simply boot up Borderlands 2 while connected to the internet and start looting before the supply runs dry on Sunday, January 13 at 10:55AM CST / 4:55PM GMT (What time is that for me?).
January 13: If you've been looking for a new sniper rifle, today's your day: a fresh supply of powerful sniper rifles is appearing throughout Pandora! To join in the fun, simply boot up Borderlands 2 while connected to the internet and start looting before the supply returns to normal on Monday, January 14 at 10:55AM CST / 4:55PM GMT (What time is that for me?).
January 14: The final day of festivities is upon us, as Pandora grows more dangerous (but also more rewarding) for those adventuring online alongside two or more players in True Vault Hunter Mode* -- should the varkids infesting Tundra Express, Caustic Caverns or Natural Selection Annex survive long enough to enter the pod state multiple times, they stand a far greater chance of morphing into the fearsome Vermivorous the Invincible. However, those that emerge victorious in their struggles against Vermivorous the Invincible also face greater rewards as the legendary Norfleet weapon is far more likely to appear upon his defeat.
Looks like there will be a few daily events going on this week. Not exactly sure what "an influx of powerful shotguns" means. My guess would be increased drop rates. But still, seems like a good reason to fire up the game and see what's going on. Haven't seen a new quest or any kind of explanation in the game so far. Coincides really nicely with the latest patch that fixed the broken shotgun bug.
