Bloody Harvest Event
The Bloody Harvest is a Halloween themed event in Borderlands 3. During this event, you can complete challenges and earn various cosmetic items to customize your character. The Bloody Harvest event will be running from October 8 to November 5 at 9:00 AM PT. You can participate in this free seasonal event once you manage to reach your spaceship, Sanctuary 3, in the game. There you can meet up with Maurice. He is a surprisingly friendly Saurian who can speak to you via a device of Tannis’ own invention. Maurice will be your guide for the Bloody Harvest and future events.
How to start the Bloody Harvest
In order to play the Bloody Harvest, you need an internet connection. When booting up the game, stay in the main menu for a little while. Once you see pumpkins show up in the environment on the main menu, you are good to go. Travel to Sanctuary 3 and meet up with Maurice. He will be located near the Mayhem Mode Modifier console. Maurice will have a new quest for you called, Decent into Heck. You need to complete this quest in order to gain access to the event-specific map called Heck. You will need to defeat Haunted enemies and collect their Hecktoplasm. Haunted enemies will show up all over the galaxy. You’re looking for an enemy with a glowing aura around them. Once you kill them, a ghost – which looks like a skull – will rise up from their corpse and you can kill it. Gather enough Hecktoplasm and Maurice will open up a portal to Heck where you can face the skeletal Captain Haunt.
Fastest Bloody Harvest Hecktoplasm Farm
The starting area of Voracious Canopy which is located on Eden-6 has a lot of haunted enemies. The enemies in this location are all flesh-based so equip your fire weapon and go to town. Focus on the enemies that glow, as these are the Haunted enemies that you will need to collect. You can also run Athenas as that is also a fun place to farm regularly during the game as it has some nice farming opportunities like Truant and Chupacabra.

How to solve the Easy as Pumpkin Pie puzzle?
Once you managed to travel to The Heck Hole, you will need to clear out 3 sections and travel to the room where you need to jump down through a hole. If you look to the right in that room you will see 4 colored skulls hanging on the wall. You will need to pull these levers in the correct order to gain access to a secret area. The sequence in which you will need to pull these levers will be different each time you will visit The Heck Hole. You can get the correct code by inspecting the pumpkin located in the previous room. At the top of the staircase, you will see 4 pumpkins each of them will glow in a specific color. The puzzle is to pull the corresponding colored skull lever in the right sequence. If you are standing on the stairs and are facing the room with the colored skulls the order in which you should check the pumpkins is by going from left to right. If you did it correctly a wall will explode and you will get access to a room filled with chests. If you failed, then you will be laughed at and you won’t be able to retry on this run. You can simply ‘save&quit’ and load the game at The Heck Hole and farm this room.
Bloody Harvest Legendary Loot
These legendary items have a high chance of dropping from Captain Haunt but they can also drop from the yellow Loot Ghosts.
