Explosive Weekend Event For Borderlands 2 Prepares Players For Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt
Gearbox is gearing up (get it? Gearing up? Anyway, carrying on) to release the next expansion pack of Borderlands 2, titled Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt. The DLC is set to include all new areas and is themed around a hunting safari run by the eponymous Sir Hammerlock, whose passion for hunting is only surpassed by his love for feathered hats and mechanical limbs.
This weekend, players of Borderlands 2 will be treated to a special event that will see a large influx of powerful weapons added to the game and its loot tables to prepare them for their hunt when the DLC arrives. As the event will run for a limited time only, players are encouraged to grab them as soon as they can. I guess we know what the contents of yesterday’s patch included in addition to bug fixes.
According to Gearbox, grenade mods will be spread throughout Pandora and, depending on how many players log on to play, they’ll be available for today only. So be sure to grab them while they’re hot. Players who miss out on the first event can expect to be treated to another event later on.
Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt is the third expansion pack for Borderlands 2, and it’s set for release on January 15—next Tuesday—for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
