Borderlands 3 Mini-Event

Starting January 21, 2021, Gearbox Software will activate a series of mini-events in Borderlands 3. Every week there will be something exciting happening in Arms Race to spice up your challenge run. Arms Race is the new stand-alone game mode that is part of the Designer’s Cut (DLC5). In this mode, you will be stripped from your gear and randomly be dropped into the map. Your goal is to loot as many chests as you can while surviving the horrors that lie ahead.


Event duration: 9 AM PT January 21 to 8:59 AM PT January 28

During the Clear Skies mini-event, all enemies will have a chance to drop better loot and the Murdercane’s circle will take longer to close in so you have precious extra time to scavenge and explore.


Event duration: 9 AM PT January 28 to 8:59 AM PT February 4

During the Extra Extra Extraction mini-event, all extraction stations will have additional slots so you can extract more gear! In addition, Air Drops will have a greatly increased chance to drop DAHL chests, which are more likely to contain Arms Race-exclusive gear.

Week 3 – GEAR RUSH

Event duration: 9 AM PT February 4 to 8:59 AM PT February 11

During the Gear Rush mini-event, Rare Chests are more likely to appear in Arms Race, and the green DAHL chests located at major points of interest in the Stormblind Complex have an increased chance to contain Arms Race exclusive gear. But make sure you don’t spend too long admiring the gear you find because the Murdercane will be closing in at a quicker pace.
