Gearbox is celebrating the anniversary of the Borderlands series in the only way it knows how: With more loot. A five week event is currently underway in Borderlands 3 and each week offers increased rewards for different activities. The second week’s modifiers are still available and focuse on Rare Spawns.
Though Rare Spawns can be located outside of the event, they have higher chances of appearing during the event. Each Rare Spawn has its Legendary loot which have higher drop rates at this time.
