Borderlands 3 Rare Spawn Hunt

The Borderlands 3 Rare Spawn Hunt event will begin on October 8 at 9 AM PDT/12 PM EDT and will run until the same time on October 15. As we mentioned above, this event is part of the Borderlands 10-year anniversary celebration, and is just one of the events taking place this month. During the event, players will earn specific rewards for killing specific creatures. However, simply killing any creature will not earn you a reward, you need to kill Rare Spawns, which will be detailed in the next section.

Once the event kicks off, finding Rare Spawns will be a little more difficult, but killing them will be worth a bigger reward than normal. Any Rare Spawn that is killed during the event has the potential to drop some Legendary loot. Thankfully, there are a handful of enemies that players can hunt down during the Rare Spawn Hunt event, so let’s take a look at them.
