Announced for Jan. 2nd-9th.
Streaming required? Screw that noise.
Yeah, I’m out. It does keep people honest (as there are prizes, this makes a difference, although I’m not sure how much of an issue it was during other hunts)? Anyway, it should be fun for people who do stream.
I wish they would have a new hunt for everyone without the prizes.
I personally didn’t care about the prizes during the first hunt. I was in it for the loot and for the overall fun of it.
Why not have a hunt for us forum guys and gals? We can just follow the same rules as they post them and just use screen shots as proof. Anyone interested?
Am I alone in geeking out that these things will be dropping from different enemies for a week?! I would looooooove to be able to pull Twisters, Interfacer, Norfleets, and Grogs without the usual required hurdles*!
*for a limited time
Damn, though… Only a week to get a brand new character up to scratch and grind out a bunch of legendaries, and with mandatory streaming? I’d be down, but that’s a crapload of time needed.
Or you ignore the contest and go to hog heaven with your OP8s!
I don’t think the loot pool will change. From what I gather, from the video, it will be the normal drops. The only difference from past hunts are starting with a fresh playthrough. Either farm the listed gear as you go or wait to open all areas after finishing nvhm.
That’s why we, as a community, could start our own hunt and tweak the time frame. We could set it up as a post similar to the Item Finds of the Day Post
I may have missed something. I’ve occasionally seen notes such as “item X dropped from bad guy Y during the Z loot hunt”, such as the tradable Grogs. I got excited and thought this type of scenario may be coming back.
From what I can gather, this isn’t an official Gearbox event and it has nothing to do with the previous loot hunts. It seems to me it’s just something that a bunch of streamers decided to get together and do by themselves. Am I missing something here?
TheHunt is not the same as the Loot Hunt
Thank you for clarifying.
Things and stuff are happening. More information will be posted on the forums as soon as it is available. Thanks!
Looking forward to it.
So this is for Streamers only? Bummer. I caught wind of this from one of Ki11er Six's live streams. Extremely pumped, being a fairly new Borderlands fan. Now I'm a little disappointed. It would be nice if there was another Loot Hunt. It would bring some life back into Borderlands and give the new players a chance to live in their own BL glory days. Add TPS in a loot hunt as well.
The Hunt thread is live in Borderlands 2 > Gameplay Discussions (Spoilers!).
The thread is currently a work in progress, but will be completed soon, once we have everything squared away from all parties.
