Borderlands 3: Bloody Harvest – how to solve the Pumpkin Puzzle

By Lauren Aitken, Friday, 25 October 2019 10:13 GMT

The Bloody Harvest event is now live in Borderlands 3 and there’s a bunch of spooky new challenges to complete.

Once you’ve completed the Descent into Heck questline, you’re free to visit Heck and complete the challenges.

In this guide, we’ll be looking at the Easy as Pumpkin Pie challenge, where you’ll need to solve a Pumpkin Puzzle. You’re looking for a room filled with coloured skulls and jack-o-lanterns, which you can find in the temple area in Heck. There are some stairs that lead to the back room where you can find these colourful items.

How to solve the Pumpkin Puzzle

Once you enter the temple, you’ll see four jack-o-lantern at the top of the stairs. Head up the stairs and you’ll see a back room with four coloured skulls hanging on chains. Exit the room and face the pumpkins and head to the one on the far right first.

Take note of what colour its eyes and mouth are glowing. Head into the back room and pull the coloured skull that matches the jack-o-lantern. Every time you pull a chain, the next pumpkin will change colour, so go through them one at a time.

Do this for each pumpkin, going right to left. Once you’re done, a wall to the left of the backroom will collapse and you can make your way through to find some loot, like the Everblast XL.

If you get stuck, check out the video from Arekkz for more details.

The Mayhem on Twitch event is also live as we enter the fourth week of the 10th-anniversary celebrations, and you’ve got a much better chance of finding Legendary and Anointed weapons when taking part in endgame activities.

There are a lot of great legendary shotguns in Borderlands 3, like the Conference Call Legendary Shotgun. There are also a lot of easter eggs to find, like the Rick and Morty gun, the Destiny Dinklebot Easter Egg and Loot-O-Gram, Lord of the Rings Easter Egg and Balrog fire-whip gun and the One Punch Man gun.
