Borderlands 3 Revenge of the Cartels 2021 Loot

So far, Gearbox hasn't mentioned what the Revenge of the Cartels 2021 loot will be.

The 2020 version of the event had high-level skins as rewards, so it could be more skins again.

Borderlands 3 True Trials

Borderlands 3 True Trials is a set of weekly challenges starting May 13 at 5 p.m. BST/12 p.m. EST. Every week, these turn Proving Grounds trials into a new set of trials where you'll take on a buffed boss and complete additional objectives to earn two Legendary items.

One item will be from the base game, and the other is from one of the Borderlands 3 DLC packs.

However, you have to own that DLC to obtain the weapons in a True Trial.
