Borderlands 3 Mini-Event Adds Legendary Gear Rewards To Campaign Progress

If you’ve had Borderlands 3 sitting on your backlog list, the Golden Path mini-event means now’s the time to pull it off that back burner and finish it up.

The event, which kicked off November 19th and runs through to December 3rd, guarantees Legendary item rewards for completing select campaign missions. That also makes this an ideal time for active players to level up an alternate character (or two) and get them outfitted.

Gamers who got their hands on next-gen consoles should also give the game a look again, the free next-gen upgrade is sizable and impressive. 4K 60, split-screen…it’s a whole new game.

Here’s the press release:


Latest Borderlands® 3 Mini-Event Lets Players Load Up on Legendary Gear While Completing the Campaign

Starting today, the new Golden Path Mini-Event guarantees Legendary rewards for select story missions, allowing players to level up new characters quickly

Your rewards for saving the universe are about to get Legendary – literally. From November 19 through December 3, get Legendary item rewards for completing select campaign missions during the free Golden Path Mini-Event for Borderlands® 3. Get your mitts on the Lyuda Legendary Vladof Sniper Rifle, Handsome Jackhammer Legendary Hyperion SMG, Nemesis Legendary Dahl Pistol, Hellwalker Legendary Jakobs Shotgun, and more!

From November 19 at 9:00 AM PST to December 3 at 9:00 AM PST, select missions in the main Borderlands 3 story campaign are guaranteed to grant Legendary rewards. Note that this lucrative loot buff does not apply to optional side missions or any missions in campaign add-ons. This is the “golden path” we’re talking about, after all.

If you’re a veteran player, now is the perfect time to power-level a new character and try the additional Skill Trees included in the new Designer’s Cut* add-on, available separately or as part of Season Pass 2.* With any luck, you’ll snag the loot you’ve always wanted and reach the endgame ready to rock with a fully decked-out Vault Hunter. If you’re completing the campaign for the very first time, this Legendary loot will give you a killer edge as you race to defeat the Calypso Twins.

If you want the complete Borderlands 3 experience, be sure to pick up Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition, which is now available on PC, Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. Ultimate Edition grants you access to the award-winning base game, multiple bonus cosmetic packs (including the recently revealed Final Form Cosmetics), and both the original Season Pass* and Season Pass 2.*

And just a reminder: Borderlands 3’s next-gen upgrade is now available for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. All players who own or purchase both a copy of the game and a next-gen console will be able to download the upgrade within the same console family for free.
