2K Games continue to celebrate Borderlands’ 10-year anniversary with another week of in-game bonuses for Borderlands 3. This week’s event: Show Me the Eridium!
For the duration of this event, Eridium drops will be added to standard enemies, Eridium drops in Mayhem Mode will be increased, Moxxi’s Vault Line slot machine will cost less Eridium to play, and all the cosmetic items and Anointed weapons at Crazy Earl’s hideout in the Cargo Bay of Sanctuary III will be discounted. (In case you haven’t done business with Crazy Earl before, he’s the only vendor who deals in Eridium, the special currency earned exclusively through gameplay.)
Please note that in order to smash apart Eridium deposits and collect the shards, you’ll need the Eridium Resonator, an artefact you’ll naturally obtain as you play through the story missions leading up to Eden-6. Once you’ve earned it, your melee strikes will be powerful enough to shatter Eridium chunks apart for collection.
The Show Me the Eridium event will begin via micro patch by or before 23:00 BST on Tuesday, October 15. You’ll receive an in-game notification if you’re playing while the micro patch goes live. To ensure that the micro patch is successfully applied, verify that you’re online, then simply remain in the main menu for a minute or two.
Show Me the Eridium will run from October 15 to October 22, when the next week’s theme begins. The remaining Borderlands Anniversary Celebration calendar is below, and if you want to know what this month of Borderlands 3 bonuses is all about, you can catch up here.
