Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and different games are looking to mark this day for lovers in different ways. Borderlands 3 is doing having such an event but with a bit of twist with the Broken Hearts Day. During the event, which starts on February 13th and runs until February 20th, some enemies around the galaxy will have hearts floating above them. Your mission is to shoot those hearts which could drop loot, make enemies allies temporarily, or explode. The more hearts you shoot the more rewards you’ll get and the reward tiers are below.
10 – “ECHOcardiogram” ECHO Skin
25 – “Cosmic Romance” Weapon Trinket
50 – “Terminal Polyaimorous” Legendary Maliwan SMG
75 – “Heartbreaker” Vault Hunter Skin
100 – “Wedding Invitation” Legendary Jakobs Sniper Rifle
Players will have the option to opt-out of the event as well, though if joining a lobby with the event active then you will end up playing the event. Alongside the Broken Hearts Day event, the level cap will be increased from 50 to 53 which will give three more skill points to your skill tree to improve the Vault Hunter characters.
Gearbox is continuing to work on other updates. One of those updates will be bringing skippable cutscenes, and also the ability to toggle Guardian rank perks. The studio also plans to expand the interaction radius between players in co-op and also allowing multiple players to help with a revive. In March Mayhem 2.0 should be coming in too, which will be spoken about more closer to the time.
In our review for Borderlands 3 Jason wrote:
I’ve got very mixed feelings about Borderlands 3. Overall I like it and it’s fun to play, but it could have been so much more and the writing feels like time traveling back to your high school days and being surprised and a little disappointed at how immature everyone is. Few things in life are as embarrassing as the person you were five years ago. If you’re not embarrassed, then I’m sorry to say that you may well be the Borderlands 3 of your friend group; stuck in the past unable to grow or change in any meaningful way, relying on fart jokes as a stand-in for your personality.
