Borderlands is ten years old and to celebrate 2K games are running five weeks of events within Borderlands 3. Week three is all about getting your grubby hands on as much Eridium as possible. For the duration of this event, Eridium drops will be added to standard enemies, Eridium drops in Mayhem Mode will be increased, Moxxi’s Vault Line slot machine will cost less Eridium to play, and all the cosmetic items and Anointed weapons at Crazy Earl’s hideout in the Cargo Bay of Sanctuary III will be discounted.
In order to smash apart Eridium deposits and collect the shards, you’ll need the Eridium Resonator, an artefact you’ll naturally obtain as you play through the story missions leading up to Eden-6. Once you’ve earned it, your melee strikes will be powerful enough to shatter Eridium chunks apart for collection.
The “Show Me the Eridium” event will begin via micro patch by or before 23:00 BST on Tuesday, October 15. You’ll receive an in-game notification if you’re playing while the micro patch goes live. To ensure that the micro patch is successfully applied, verify that you’re online, then simply remain in the main menu for a minute or two.
Check out the remaining events below:
Week 4 (October 22-29): Mayhem on Twitch!
Week 5 (October 29 – November 4): Spooky Surprise!
