Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt Is Coming -Get Your Craziest Gun Ready
The Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt is coming soon, with 2K Games and Gearbox Software giving a grand total of $100,000 worth of prizes away. So what exactly does the hunt entail? As Claptrap lovingly put it: “If you’re interested in shooting things in the face, picking up loot, and then shooting NEW things in the face with the NEW loot you picked up, then congratulations – your face is about to be blown right the heck off!” Before we get into the specific details, have a look at the Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt announcement trailer:
From October 11th at 10am Eastern (7am Pacific), some of the craziest guns in Pandora will start dropping in your game. Once you get one of these special guns, Gearbox will be posting Community Goals. These goals involve killing a special type of enemy with that day’s unique gun – simple! Players who take down this target will be entered into a special weekly prize draw, and will also receive an entry into the grand prize drawing for $50,000 cash (or one of the four additional prizes). Also if the Community completes the assignment, you’ll get to unlock a “uniquely super-awesome gun” at the end of the week. There you have it, free stuff simply for killing things in a game.
This special event is going to last from October 11th until November 7th, and make sure that you register in the Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt website first. Anyone can take part in the Community goals, however (and this is the bad news for us UK players) the physical and cash prizes are only available to residents of the US.
Will you be joining the hunt and collecting some awesome loot?
