Borderlands 3 and Fortnite come together in the FortniteXMayhem event

There’s a new crossover event taking place in Fortnite through the FortniteXMayhem event in which players can get some Borderlands 3 goodies, as well as dive into the Pandora Rift zone. There’s a Psycho bundle on offer which gives players a psycho bandit skin, a Claptrap pet, and a Psycho Buzz axe to mine resources with or attack enemies. Gearbox has also confirmed that anyone who pre-orders Borderlands 3 through the Epic Games Store will get this bundle for free. Players can also earn free rewards while playing Fortnite as normal.

There have been some recent and notable changes to Fortnite as well. Just a few days ago the Brute mech was adjusted due to the hundreds of complaints of how powerful it was. Basically since the update the mechs have become less powerful, and respawn at a reduced rate. On the Borderlands side of things there’s been a few changes and you can read about them in Miguel’s preview which concluded with him saying:

Overall, though, Borderlands 3 is shaping up to be a hell of a package. The baddy-blasting action and gun-hoarding of the last game is only amplified, on top of being complemented by new customisation features and some really intriguing new online mechanics. It’s been a long time coming, but with a showing like this, I’m confident that the wait for Borderlands 3 will be well worth it.

The Borderlands 3 preview can be read here. The game itself will be released in just a few weeks on September 13th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
