The Bloody Harvest event has started and there’s a host of spooky new challenges for you to complete.

Borderlands 3 first major in-game event, Bloody Harvest, is now underway and runs till December 5. During the next month or so, you’ll have a bunch of Bloody Harvest challenges to complete that will net you some sweet new loot.

You can interact with the Bloody Harvest vendor, Maurice, in Sanctuary when the event begins to trade your hard-earned cash for new weapons and gear, too.

Borderlands 3’s first campaign DLC, Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, begins on December 19, so there’s not long left to wait.

Bloody Harvest challenges

There are 15 Bloody Harvest challenges to work your way through until December 5. You’ll receive a mixture of weapons, cosmetics and currency for completing them alongside the other Bloody Harvest loot you’ll acquire during the event.

To get started, you’ll need to complete the Descent into Heck quest by finding and killing 25 ghosts. After that, you’ll need to defeat Captain Haunt. He’s a spooky skeleton version of Captain Traunt, and you’ll need to farm him for one of these challenges.
