It’s that spooky time of year again, when vengeful ghosts possess corporeal beings across the galaxy and rakk-o’-lanterns terrorize the skies.
Yes, Bloody Harvest has returned!
This free limited-time event runs in Borderlands 3 until November 5. Get revenge on the fearsome Captain Haunt and his macabre minions in the pursuit of brand-new rewards.
To take part in this optional event, seek out Maurice aboard Sanctuary III. Your friendly Saurian shipmate will give you a mission to collect Hecktoplasm from the ghosts that spawn when you kill haunted enemies. These possessed punching bags bear a telltale green glow and can be found throughout the galaxy. And while you only need the base game of Borderlands 3 to participate, ghostly foes can also be found in DLC locations like The Handsome Jackpot, Xylourgos, Gehenna, and even Krieg’s Mind (DLC add-ons available for purchase separately). Killing haunted enemies spawns fearsome specters, which you’ll have to kill to collect that precious, precious Hecktoplasm.
Get enough ghost goo for Maurice and he’ll open a portal to Heck, the blood-curdling abode of Captain Haunt! There you’ll find challenges to complete to unlock new Bloody Harvest items. You can view these challenges any time via a special tab in your ECHO Device. You’ll also notice that Maurice is getting less demanding in his advancing age and has made a few returning challenges less grindy (thanks, Maurice).
Loot you collect in Heck scales to your level and may include powerful “Terror” anointments that turn would-be debuffs into boons. As a fittingly festive reward, you can unlock a host of cosmetics by completing challenges, including a weapon trinket, ECHO Device skin, a shared Vault Hunter skin, and—for the most dedicated demolishers of Heck—a coveted weapon skin.
4 Challenges Completed - “A Shrinking Feeling" weapon trinket
8 Challenges Completed - “Message from Beyond” ECHO Device skin
12 Challenges Completed - “Haunted Look” shared Vault Hunter skin
15 Challenges Completed - “Porphyrophobia” weapon skin
As with our other seasonal events, you have the option to opt in or out of Bloody Harvest Returns via the Main Menu. But if you want to show off some supernatural spoils to your fellow Vault Hunters, you’d do well to take part in the mayhem before it ends November 5!
