2K Games teased with a tweet that Mercenary Day is making it’s return. The Christmas event from the Borderlands 2, Mercenary Day, is coming to the Pre-Sequel. No it won’t be a downloadable campaign add-on like we had with Borderlands 2. It’s going to be a SHIFT event like the one during Halloween. Back then we got to hunt Undeadlift for a pumpkin launching shotgun. As 2K or Gearbox haven’t released any further details what this event will contain there are some things that come to mind.

Happy Mercenary Day! Much like the citizens of Pandora, folks on Elpis love to take time every year celebrate the holiday season with generosity, giving, and murder. From today until January 5th, you’ll be able to celebrate right along with them in a brand new in-game event available for free to all players.
You’ll find some “merry” enemies in the mood for a little holiday cheer over at the R & D Facility and Pity’s Fall, plus a terrifying-but-celebratory new Kraggon in Serenity’s Waste named Odjurymir that will give you a chance of getting a new weapon if you manage to defeat it.
