Gearbox and 2K Holding a $100,000 Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt
Yes, there’s plenty of in-game loot to be had the duration of this contest, but that hundred grand ain’t Pandora currency. It’s real world dollars that could be yours so long as you can follow the simple instructions of shooting something’s face off every week.
Beginning October 11th, and continuing every week for four weeks straight, targets will be designated within the Borderlands; your goal is take an assigned weapon and administer death to designated target. Every kill of these special enemies will count as an entry towards winning either that week’s cash pool – the final week amounting to a $50,000 prize…that’s a helluva haul – or one of the very bodacious sponsored items up above.
Unfortunately for my friends abroad, real life prizes are restricted to the U.S. But in-game loot, of which rarer goods will be in abundance during the contest, are being made available worldwide.
Oh, and in case you’ve somehow avoided the shootin’, lootin’ fun n’ gun action of Borderlands up to this point, Gearbox just so happens to be releasing Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition on October 8th. It comes packed with all four major DLC campaigns and both bonus character classes. If you despise fun, I recommend staying way the hell away from it.
