Default Borderlands 2 Gear Up Event [Now Over]


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!

Day 1 (Friday, January 11)
The festivities begin today, January 11, with Vault Hunters reporting an influx of powerful shotguns throughout Pandora. To join in the fun, simply boot up Borderlands 2 while connected to the internet and start looting before the supply runs dry -- based on current conditions, expect the excess to be exhausted on Saturday, January 12 at 10:55AM CST / 4:55PM GMT (What time is that for me?)

Day 2 (Saturday, 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?)

Day 3 (Sunday, 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 things return to normal at 10:55AM CST / 4:55PM GMT on Monday, January 14 (What time is that for me?).

Day 4 (Monday, January 14 - Thursday, January 17 @ 10:55AM CST / 4:55PM GMT)
The final day of festivities is upon us, as Pandora grows more dangerous (but also more rewarding) for those adventuring online with 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.

This chance to easily hunt one of Pandora's most elusive beasts has now been extended until 10:55AM CST / 4:55PM GMT on Thursday, January 17 (What time is that for me?) -- be sure to make use of the extra time!

Do you have to have an xbox live gold membership for this to be relevant?

I don't believe so, but you will need an active internet connection for the event to trigger.

Limited time event? Exciting! I'll spend some good time looking for those items even if they are not useful.
Wait, were those items introduced in the last patch?
