Borderlands 3 players get extra Eridium this week for 10-year series anniversary

Gearbox Software continues its celebration of Borderlands’ 10-year anniversary this week with the release of the “Show Me the Eridium” event in Borderlands 3.

Starting October 15, a micropatch will go live kicking the Eridium event into gear. This will introduce additional Eridium drops across the board, including in Mayhem Mode and for standard enemy kills. Likewise, Moxxi’s Vault Line slot machine will cost less Eridium to play, and all cosmetic items and Anointed weapons at Crazy Earl’s hideout will be discounted.

The event runs until October 22.

“Please note that in order to smash apart Eridium deposits and collect the shards, you’ll need the Eridium Resonator, an artifact you’ll naturally obtain as you play through the story missions leading up to Eden-6,” says Gearbox in a prepared statement. “Once you’ve earned it, your melee strikes will be powerful enough to shatter Eridium chunks apart for collection.”

The remaining Borderlands Anniversary Celebration calendar can be found below:

  • Week 3 (October 15-22): Show Me the Eridium!
  • Week 4 (October 22-29): Mayhem on Twitch!
  • Week 5 (October 29 – November 4): Spooky Surprise!
