The first details for the Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest event have been revealed on the first episode of the Borderlands Show. Borderlands 3 (read our review here) Creative Director Paul Sage talked about some of the details that are coming with the Bloody Harvest event, which will be launching sometime in October.
To enter the special Bloody Harvest map, players will need to kill Haunted enemies that spawn around the galaxy during the event. The Haunted enemies introduce a new Terror debuff into the game, which will partially cover the player’s vision with a mysterious mist while also reducing gun handling, accuracy, and spread.
Players will also be able to collect Hecktoplasm during the event which can be turned into a new pet named Maurice that will take residence on the Sanctuary III.
The Bloody Harvest map will feature its own set of enemies including flying Rakk-O’-Lanterns, Ratches, and more. At the end of the event map, players will be able to fight the event’s boss Captain Haunt, who is a resurrected Captain Traunt from the game’s story campaign.
Lastly, the Blood Harvest event will introduce a whole new set of rewards and items including new cosmetics such as an ECHO Device skin, a weapon trinket, a skin for each of the Vault Hunters, and a global weapon skin.
There’s also two new legendary guns, a new legendary shield, and a new grenade mod. Haunted enemies, ghosts, and Captain Haunt will also drop new Anointed loot that may roll new Terror-based modifiers.
The Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest event will begin sometime in October and will last for a little over a month.
