The Great Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt Has Begun

Jack Gardner


Vault Hunters and lovers of swag rejoice! Borderlands 2's contest with $100,000 worth of prizes is now in progress.


From now until November 7, players who have purchased the Borderlands 2 Game of the Year edition or who have purchased the DLC can register a SHiFT account. SHiFT will track the participant's in-game stats, automatically entering into the contest upon completing the daily challenges. Each entry increases the likelihood of winning the prizes, and oh, what prizes there are!


According to the loot hunt website:

In addition to the many weekly sponsored prizes, one lucky loot hunter will win a grand prize of $50,000, and four others will win varying amounts of cash totaling another $50,000 along with other great prizes including:
  • PlayStation Vitas with copies of Borderlands 2 for the PS Vita once it's out
  • Custom Borderlands 2 Turtle Beach headsets
  • An Nvidia Shield PC Streaming set-up with a Tiki PC by Falcon Northwest
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti GFX cards
  • Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition Strategy Guides by BradyGames
  • Lifetime supplies to all 2K titles on Steam – past, present, and future

To clarify that last bullet point: YOU CAN WIN A LIFETIME OF FREE 2K TITLES. In addition to all of that, each target of the daily challenges will drop loot that can be used to earn community-wide prizes.


Finally, significant stat boosts to existing weapons are expected in the near future.


For more information or to register your SHiFT account, head over to and get shooting.
