Sure, we're some way off Halloween, but Borderlands 3's Bloody Harvest event is a huge event in the loot-shooter calendar.
With new loot to earn, a crazy cadre of spooky enemies to slay, and the franchise's trademark humour, it's an all-round fun time for Vault Hunters of all ages.
Here's all we know about this year's event.

Just a brief reminder that seasonal events like Bloody Harvest can be turned on or off at any point. Will Gearbox add anything extra this year to bolster the event in celebration of Halloween. We doubt it, something tells us Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is getting the developers full undivided atention right now. That said, you can never rule anything out. So stay tuned!

Ok, so, Borderlands 3 just released a massive new update and it has big implications for seasonal events just like Bloody Harvest.
In short, Seasonal Events don't appear to be seasonal anymore and Borderlands fans can choose to toggle on and off any previously limited time event in the game any time they wish. This doesn't just apply to Bloody Harvest, but also, Revenge of the Cartels and Broken Hearts Day.
Here's a few other changes worth noting:
- Added seasonal event gear, normally awarded by challenges during the season, to drop from their respective bosses
- Added Wedding Invitation and Polyaimourous to the drop pool for Loot Hearts
- Increased Captain Haunt's drop rate for Legendary seasonal gear
- Added Bloody Harvest Anointments to the Re-Roll Machine while the event is active

If last year's event is anything to go by, we can expect the Bloody Harvest to return in early October and run for a month or so.
Borderlands 3 Bloody Harvest 2021: What To Expect
Borderlands has always been goofy, but its Halloween questline last year was great fun all the same.
Players had to work with Maurice to collect... 'Hecktoplasm' from a series of ghosts that appear after killing enemies. Once they'd done that, they could visit the home of Captain Haunt.
Here, players could earn loot with 'Terror' effects, marking some of the most unique weaponry in the entire game, as well as cosmetics by completing a series of challenges.
The event is also free to take part in, meaning we're counting down the days to jump in.
