'Borderlands 3' Maurice's Community Carnage Challenges Begin This Friday

Borderlands 3 is a story-driven, non-stop galactic thrill-ride, filled with colorful characters, epic enemies and boss fights, and literally billions of guns.

The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure!

Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters – the ultimate treasure-seeking badasses of the Borderlands, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization.

Play solo or join with friends to take on insane enemies, collect bazillions of guns and loads of loot, and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy – the Calypso Twins.

Stop the fanatical Calypso Twins from uniting the bandit clans and claiming the galaxy’s ultimate power. Only you, a thrill-seeking Vault Hunter, have the arsenal and allies to take them down.

Become one of four extraordinary Vault Hunters, each with unique abilities, playstyles, deep skill trees, and tons of personalization options. All Vault Hunters are capable of awesome mayhem alone, but together they are unstoppable.

With bazillions of guns and gadgets, every fight is an opportunity to score new gear. Firearms with self-propelling bullet shields? Check. Rifles that spawn fire-spewing volcanoes? Obviously. Guns that grow legs and chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults? Yeah, got that too.

Discover new worlds beyond Pandora, each featuring unique environments to explore and enemies to destroy. Tear through hostile deserts, battle your way across war-torn cityscapes, navigate deadly bayous, and more!

It's time for all Vault Hunters to take up arms and unite for a singular purpose: assisting Maurice the Saurian with his continued research of humanity's strange ways! Prepare yourself for Maurice's Community Carnage Challenges, a series of tasks that everyone playing Borderlands 3 can contribute to. By collectively completing these challenges, you can take part in unlocking a new, wildlife-themed batch of cosmetic Vault Hunter Heads for the entire community to enjoy.

Starting October 14 at 9:00 AM PT, we're kicking off the first of four community challenge events, with new ones unlocking on the following Thursdays. There's no need to accept a mission from an NPC to take part in these—participation is as simple as following the in-game objective presented each week in this article and on our Social Channels, which will all be counted behind the scenes by some manner of technological wizardry. If you want to check the daily progress for how close the Borderlands 3 community is to completing each shared goal, Borderlands Creator Team member MentalMars has you covered.

Once one of Maurice's Community Carnage Challenges has been successfully completed, we'll share out a SHiFT code in this article that will grant the new Vault Hunter Head reward! You can redeem the revealed SHiFT codes here on, on the Gearbox SHiFT site, or via the in-game Social menu in Borderlands 3. Borderlands 3 and SHiFT account required to redeem. Each code may be redeemed once (1) per SHiFT account.

These next few weeks will be an exciting time of community collaboration in Borderlands 3, so hop in and take part in Maurice's Community Carnage Challenges! Everyone's favorite neighborhood Saurian eagerly awaits the ruthless results of your efforts.

Challenge 1 - Traunt's Bloodied Bloodline (Starts Oct 14)

Maurice needs body parts rich with Traunt Family DNA for, uh... research. Kill Captain Traunt (found on Athenas), General Traunt (found on Nekrotafeyo), and Captain Haunt (found in Heck, which can only be accessed while you've activated the Bloody Harvest event via the main menu) a collective total of 500,000 times to keep Maurice's organ stash overflowing.

Developed from the ground up with AMD, Borderlands 3 will take full advantage of the most powerful PC hardware available, and is optimized for top performance and incredible gaming experiences on AMD Radeon graphics cards and Ryzen CPUs.

Borderlands 3 is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Stadia, and PC (Steam and the Epic Games Store).
