As the month-long Borderlands Anniversary Celebration nears its final week and Bloody Harvest draws near. They’re bringing a double dose of bonuses to Borderlands 3. This week’s event, Mayhem on Twitch, rewards players and viewers alike as Mayhem Mode and the Borderlands 3 ECHOcast Twitch Extension get kicked up a notch.
Watch the Bloody Harvest here:
About Mayhem Mode
For the duration of the event, players who enable Mayhem Mode will see an increased drop chance for Anointed gear. Also, increased XP gains for defeating enemies, and reduced values for various Mayhem Mode penalty modifiers.
Meanwhile, Borderlands Mayhem event viewers and streamers on Twitch will enjoy amped-up ECHOcast features. Badass Viewer Events will occur more often (this is a permanent change, too!). Also, voting periods will be accelerated during the event to make these viewer-controlled badasses even more of a challenge. In addition, Rare Chest Events will have a 100% guaranteed win rate this week instead of the usual one-in-four chance.
As a reminder, Mayhem Mode can only be enabled once you’ve finished Borderlands 3’s main story campaign. Which unlocks a special console aboard Sanctuary III. In contrast, earning rewards through ECHOcast requires almost no effort; all you need to do is link your SHiFT and Twitch accounts. Even if you don’t own Borderlands 3 yet, you can still take part in the fun. Any rewards you score via Rare Chest Events will be waiting for you in your in-game mailbox. So will be ready for you to collect whenever you jump into Borderlands 3.
Step-by-step for Borderlands 3 Mayhem on Twitch
Here’s a step-by-step guide to linking your SHiFT and Twitch accounts:
- If you don’t have a SHiFT account, you can set one up for free at the Gearbox SHiFT site.
- If you don’t have a Twitch account, you can set one up for free by heading over to Twitch and using the “Sign Up” link at the top of the page.
- Linking your accounts is easy. Visit the settings tab on your SHiFT profile page by clicking the little gear icon, click on the Twitch logo under “Connections,” and follow the onscreen instructions to link your account. Alternatively, sign in to your SHiFT account over at the Gearbox SHiFT site, click on “Gaming Platforms” on the left, and then click on the “Link” option under the Twitch logo. You can also click the “SHiFT Account Link” button under the Events tab within the ECHOcast extension itself to navigate to the SHiFT site and link your accounts if you haven’t done so already.
Borderlands Mayhem on Twitch will begin courtesy of a quick micropatch deploying by or before 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday, October 22 and run through October 29, when the final week’s theme begins. If you’re playing while the micropatch goes live, you’ll receive an in-game notification. To ensure the micropatch is successfully applied, verify that you’re online. Then simply remain in the main menu for a minute or two.
