This Week at Gearbox – Week of 4/20

We’ve been busy at home keeping the gears turning on our Software and Publishing titles, and we wanted to give you a place to keep track of all the fun we get into from week to week. Watch this space every Friday afternoon for recaps on our latest updates, current sales, and more!


Borderlands 3

This week marked the launch of both Mayhem 2.0 and the Revenge of the Cartels seasonal event. Mayhem 2.0 is a permanent change which overhauls the Mayhem system to deliver 10 levels of Mayhem, the ability to re-roll modifiers and toggle Mayhem via your ECHO Device, and more! Check out Tuesday’s article for more details, and check out the video below to see it in action.

Revenge of the Cartels is the latest seasonal event which has you go up against Cartel underbosses and their leader, Joey Ultraviolet, to save our favorite Sanctuary III Saurian scholar Maurice. The event runs through June 4, and it delivers all-new content including Legendaries, cosmetic rewards, and an all-new area to explore. Learn more:

The Loot the Universe event was also announced, in which one planet per week will have increased chances for Legendary gear types, starting with Pandora right now! Loot the Universe runs through May 14, but you can check out the whole planetary schedule here.

Other than turning the above events on, this week’s patch and hotfix includes tons of fixes and improvements, including adding more SDUs to purchase! Now you can purchase up to 100 additional bank slots and 10 more backpack spaces for all that sweet new loot. Check out the full notes here.

Borderlands Legendary Collection

Announced last month, you can look forward to taking your mayhem to go when Borderlands Legendary Collection releases on Nintendo Switch May 29th–but you can reserve your copy today!


Bulletstorm: Duke of Switch – The Switch version of the remastered Bulletstorm, which includes Duke Nukem’s Bulletstorm Tour, is on sale now for 50% off through May 13th.

Amazon Sale – These select Gearbox Publishing titles are on sale right NOW on Amazon through Saturday, May 2:

That’s it for us this week, but here what you need to know for next week:

  • The Loot the Universe event switches planets from Pandora to Promethea on April 30.
  • The Borderlands 3 Co-op Loot Drop event ends Thursday, April 30, so this is your last chance for increased drops from badass enemies in co-op as well grabbing themed seasonal items from previous events from your in-game mailbox.

Be kind, stay safe, and stay tuned to our social channels for news as it happens! Whether it’s Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, we gotchu, boo.

See you next week!
