Gearbox Announces the Great Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt *UPDATE*

What’s that, you need a reason to boot up Borderlands 2 again?  Well, here you go!  As Claptrap said, starting Friday players can partake in an epic hunt to get rare loot and win up to $50,000!  All that’s required is that you play the game as much as possible, have your console connected to the internet, and have a SHiFT account.


According to the Borderland Facebook Page there will be a delay in the contest:

Hi everyone,

Thank you for your patience today while we overcame technical difficulties with the start of our Loot Hunt event. 

Due to the nature of these difficulties, we will be officially starting the Loot Hunt tomorrow, October 12th, at 11AM EDT. 

Apologies for any inconvenience. 

Be sure to check tomorrow at 11AM EDT for full Loot Hunt info!
