The ultimate reward for completing the latest seasonal event in Borderlands 3 is a special sniper rifle called the Wedding Invitation. The game limits every character to just one of these legendary weapons, however, so players are taking some drastic measures to find the version with the best stats and bonuses before the event ends tomorrow morning.

Borderlands 3 players have had almost six months to wring as much enjoyment out of the game as possible, including by reaching level 50, the game’s maximum. Now, the developers are ready to introduce the first level cap increase, which will give players the chance to earn three more levels beyond the current ceiling starting February 13.

The holidays are approaching fast. For many that means a fortnight of pure, relaxing bliss. It's the perfect opportunity to chew through games on your shame pile, or to buy a few more and add to it. If you're about to head into a solid break, these are the titles that are absolutely perfect to get started with.

Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, the first of four major DLC expansions planned for Borderlands 3, is an odd duck with regard to the way it’s made me reconsider the game’s main campaign. While I very much enjoyed Borderlands 3 and believe this is a fun and necessary continuation of its looter-shooter adventure, the main villains and conflicts consistently felt like cheap detours compared to Handsome Jack. This opinion was only strengthened by the DLC’s inclusion of a pseudo-return of the previous instalment’s corporate douchebag.

The coolest thing about Borderlands 3, or any Borderlands game for that matter, is the guns. Colourful guns. Plastic-looking guns with corporate logos, flashing lights and explosive sounds. Due out in December, PDP’s $US150 ($220) Prop Replica Maliwan Pistol captures the spirit of Borderlands weaponry without anyone exploding (probably).

Today saw the start of Bloody Harvest, the first big event for Borderlands 3. After a month of hit-or-miss weekly events, this Halloween-themed update is a fantastic reason to get back into the game, with numerous challenges to keep players busy and, of course, mountains of loot to scavenge.

The Borderlands series has always been known for having billions of guns, with each gun randomly generated. But all of these weapons also make noises when they shoot, like the loud crack of sniper or the blast of a rocket launcher. And as explained by the senior sound designer at Gearbox, Joshua Davidson, it took a lot of work to create over 5000 gun sounds for Borderlands 3.

Gearbox continued its trend of weekly Borderlands 3 hotfixes with a whopper this afternoon, weakening some of the game’s best legendary guns and grenades in the process. The severity of these nerfs differs from item to item. In a few cases, it isn’t the end of the world, but a portion of the community is struggling to understand why the developers would so drastically alter some of the borderline overpowered weaponry.

We’ve reached the third week of unique Borderlands 3 events, and this time around Gearbox has seen fit to tweak the numbers to make Eridium, a secondary currency that’s much harder to find than regular money, drop more frequently. The only problem is that there’s still very little on which to actually spend these purple space rocks.

It’s so easy to miss things that are hiding right under your nose, especially in a video game as big as Borderlands 3. I did manage to find, for example, the microbrewery dungeon that’s completely optional. But I completely missed this fully-functioning roller coaster that you can ride, despite the dozens of hours I’ve spent playing the game. As of this morning, I have now ridden this roller coaster. You should too.

Borderlands 3 is currently running through a series of week-long events leading up to a big Halloween-themed blowout later this month. While last week’s legendary gear hunt was a bit of a bummer, developer Gearbox’s latest attempt to keep folks interested in their flagship looter shooter gives players the chance to fight some unique enemies that are easy to miss the first few times through the game.

The first few hours of every Borderlands game tend to feel like an uphill grind until you finally unlock better skills and find cooler weapons. Borderlands 3 is no different. But it gets a lot better once you leave Pandora, especially if you want to find a gun that isn’t an underpowered pistol or a shotgun. If that’s you, leave Pandora as soon as you can.

We’re currently in the midst of a week-long Borderlands 3 event, during which players can expect bosses to drop specific legendary loot with greater frequency. As someone still looking for a decent class mod, this was an exciting prospect for me, but after spending some time farming the bosses in question, I don’t see myself changing up my loot-hunting habits any time soon.

Some Borderlands 3 players believe that one member of the game’s roster of four playable characters is a bit of a lemon. It turns out that Zane, the Operative, is kind of a lousy performer when it comes to surviving Borderlands 3’s toughest post-game challenges. These problems don’t become clear until you reach the endgame, and by then, it’s already too late.
