A new addition of the Borderlands community event The Hunt has officially been announced. #TheHunt2018 will start on February 19th, 2018 and will go until February 25, 2018. If you want to participate the sign up is officially opened. Make sure you are familiar with the rule set. This competition is for vanilla Borderlands 2. The usage of the Unofficial Community Patch, or any mod that changes the vanilla drop rates is NOT allowed. Also no Golden Key items are allowed. For the full list of rules and regulations check out the resources below. Hopefully Gearbox will support these types of events in the next Borderlands game.
The Hunt Event
If you don’t know what The Hunt event is than let me fill you in. The Hunt is an community event where the participants play Borderlands (2) and go and obtain a specific set of gear. The list contains unique gear as these have a specific drop location but not a guaranteed drop chance. This forces players to grind specific bosses or area in order to obtain the specific weapon. While a drop might be random and some players are more lucky than others, there is a level of skill involved to be efficient. The whole run must be streamed online to check if the player actually played fair.
