Borderlands 3 fans waiting for the next expansion to arrive have been giving special encouragement to continue playing the current content of the game. Over the next few weeks, playing a co-op at Borderlands 3 will reward players with more loot drops, and prizes will increase according to the number of Vault Hunters in the team.
The new “Co-Op Loot Drop Mini-Event” should see players jump back to Borderlands 3, bringing a few friends with them. The recent Borderlands 3 event sees players rewarded with more drops of weapons depending on the number of people they fight.
With a small bonus from playing with a single friend and a big buff robbery reduced when playing with two or three friends, the event can see friend groups reap many rewards in Pandora and other planets.
While Gearbox Software’s loot Shooter did not have a complete holiday event in December, the force still wants to ensure that everyone in the family can get the momentum by playing together. Launched today and operates until January 21, the Borderlands 3 Co-op Loot Drop event ensures that badass enemies throw a lot of loot on anyone playing in the co-op game.
This applies to both online and local players collaborating throughout the major campaign and any levels included in the various DLC expansions. As a bonus, the result is bigger and better when there are more players at the party, so those in the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 can load the bed of robbers who think like him and go into town with that enhanced screen play.
Although Borderlands 3 did not attract the attention of many players who had already attacked many other games in the franchise, diehard fans and new players alike turned the game into another great success.
It was just the kind of success Gearbox needed after Battleborn’s downfall, though one hopes the studio can take some of these franchise magic into something new for its next game. Although it is a new cycle in the Borderlands world, five basic entries in a series that does not bring something new to the table could put them at risk of attracting too few fans and lagging behind many sports engineers.
As the content doesn’t arrive until later in 2021, however, fans should have plenty of time to prepare for more robust uploads and build their own Vault Hunters – and this event seems to be a good place to start.
