Soak up some rays, rock those neon colors, and bust crime like it’s the ’80s in Revenge of the Cartels, the free seasonal event happening in Borderlands 3 from April 23 to June 4.
Revenge of the Cartels features an all-new area, fresh enemy types, limited-time Challenges, and of course, tons of gear to collect including new Legendaries and Anointments. In his continued studies of human customs, your Saurian crewmate Maurice has gotten himself mixed up with the wrong crowd, and now finds himself indebted to Joey Ultraviolet, the kingpin of the Eridium Cartel. To save Maurice’s scaly hide, you’ll need to take the fight to Joey and his gangs of underlings at Villa Ultraviolet, an opulent hideout overlooking a tropical paradise.
The first time you log in during Revenge of the Cartels, you’ll get a repeatable quest from Maurice aboard Sanctuary III that must be completed in order to reach Villa Ultraviolet. During the event, neon-glowing Cartel Operative enemies can be found lurking around the galaxy, including areas from campaign add-ons. When you kill an Operative, a dead-man’s switch signal is sent to their cohorts, and some Cartel Thugs will warp in to avenge their slain comrade.
