Borderlands 3 Reveals Valentine’s Day Event

More fun Borderlands 3 news has arrived.

Broken Hearts Day seasonal event* is back for the second year running! Mysterious floating hearts are swirling around lovesick enemies across the Borderlands. Aboard Sanctuary III, your Saurian pal Maurice—sensing an opportunity to further his studies of our species’ courting rituals—needs assistance. As you travel around the galaxy, he’d like you to break any hearts you see by shooting them down. Simple!

Hearts aren’t all the same, of course, and during this event, there are six distinct ways they can break. Some will fall to the ground with a fiery explosion, while others will drop loot, regenerate your health, or briefly turn nearby enemies into allies. Word has it there are even rare hearts that will spawn groups of ghosts from the Bloody Harvest, affording you an off-season opportunity to score some spooky loot.

Maurice places an equal value on all the various heart types and will keep track of how many you’ve broken. Obliterate enough hearts, and he’ll mail new Broken Hearts Day rewards for your troubles:

  • 10– “ECHOcardiogram” ECHO Skin;
  • 25– “Cosmic Romance” Weapon Trinket;
  • 50– “Terminal Polyaimorous” Legendary Maliwan SMG;
  • 75– “Heartbreaker” Vault Hunter Skin;
  • 100– “Wedding Invitation” Legendary Jakobs Sniper Rifle.

Vault Hunters that helped the sentient Saurian last year will notice that this year’s Broken Hearts Day event includes recolored ECHO Skin, Weapon Trinket, and Vault Hunter Skin cosmetic rewards. It also brings back last year’s Legendary guns— which can only be obtained during this event— at the current level cap of 65.

This seasonal event has now begun, and you have two weeks to assist Maurice before the event ends at 8:59 AM PT on Thursday, February 25. If you don’t want to take part in the Broken Hearts Day event or simply want to play Borderlands 3 without breaking hearts for a while, you can opt out from the main menu. Note that when you join an online game, the host player’s setting will determine whether or not the event is active.

But that’s not all! The latest episode of The Borderlands Show was packed with exciting updates and announcements, including news on the upcoming Director’s Cut* add-on for Borderlands 3, the impending re-release of award-winning adventure title Tales from the Borderlands®, and the reveal of the Disciples of the Vault premium cosmetic packs coming soon to Season Pass 2*.
