The Hunt 2019 – Borderlands Community Event

The Hunt is a community event where you play Borderlands 2. The objective is to farm for a specific set of gear. The list of requirements contains unique gear as these have a fixed drop location. As the drop chance of most of these weapons is pretty low you will have to grind specific bosses or areas in order to obtain the item in question. while the drops are random and some players seem luckier than others, there is a level of skill involved to run an efficient loot hunt. In order to check if everyone plays fair according to the rules, the whole run must be streamed online.

THE HUNT EVENT

A new addition of the Borderlands community event The Hunt has officially been announced. #TheHunt2019  will start on February 4th, 2019 and will last 5 days.  If you want to participate the sign up is officially opened, check out the link below. 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 mods that changes the vanilla drop rates are NOT allowed. Also, no Golden Key items are allowed. For the full list of rules and regulations check out the resources below because some rules have changed since last year. Hopefully, Gearbox will support these types of events in the next Borderlands game.

ENHANCED EXPERIENCE

This year’s LootHunt contains some new experiences because with the release of Borderlands 2 VR you can now also participate in VR.

Another great addition to the LootHunt is the new website. Here you can sign up and register your loot when you participate in the event. There will be a leaderboard and you can check out your ranking and drops.

TIPS BY LAZYDATA

Lazydata finished second in Loothunt2018. Here are a few tips:

  • Character choice: The hunt goes to OP8 and involves UVHM raid bosses. Pick a character that you are comfortable with to do these events. Not just Sal ’cause he’s the best, use the one YOU are best with.
  • Don’t waste time! You don’t need a level 1 hornet! If the exp is no longer good, move on, you need level 72 so don’t waste your time not getting exp. You can get that item later!
  • DON’T NEGLECT YOUR HEALTH! It’s very tempting to buy a crate of red bull and pull a 24hr day one. But don’t! It’s a multi-day event. Pace yourself, take breaks, get proper sleep and drink plenty of water. Always be playing at your best, not on 3 hours of sleep!
