It’s been nearly two and a half years since Borderlands 3 was released, but this classic first-person shooter has gotten a minor update on the heels of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands release on March 25, 2022. The game’s core is still the same, meaning people looking to play Miss. Moxxxi’s slot machines for some extra loot can still do so. These slots have loot that you could never get from an online casino.
The Bunker Masters vault card is available for players that have purchased the Borderlands 3: Season Pass 2 add-on. Players with this add-on will be given weekly and daily challenges to complete to earn chests to open. The chest will contain anything from keys to items for players to collect and use. The Buster Masters vault card will include four new pieces of gear for users to acquire with the keys they get from chests.
The Creeping Corruption is the first piece of gear that you can get with keys from the Bunker Masters vault card. You can acquire this legendary assault rifle made by the Dahl corporation for five keys. The gun has a unique effect, under the line of “How it comes thus?”, which causes corruption to spread to nearby enemies after getting a kill with infected enemies taking 33% more damage. The special effect stacks up to three times.
The Blade Fury is the second piece of gear that you can acquire with keys. The Blade Fury is a legendary assault rifle made by the Jakobs corporation and can be acquired with five keys. The gun has a unique effect under the red tag of “Master of the gun, the blade, and philosophy” that shoots knives that deal both weapon and mell damage to enemies.
The Sidewinder is the third available piece of gear from the Bunker Masters vault card and is a legendary grenade mod made by Torgue. The Sidewinder can be acquired by using five keys. This mod has a unique effect under the red tag of “This is what I call a target-rich environment.” The unique effect allows for grenades to leave sticky bombs to enemies that it penetrates, detonating after three seconds, and can damage nearby players when the grenade explodes.
The fourth and final piece of gear that is available from the Bunker Masters vault card is the Mana Well. The Mana Well is a legendary shield made by Pangolin and can be acquired by using five keys to unlock the shield. The Mana Well has a unique effect with the red text of “With great (something) comes great (something else).” The effect is that the player’s shields will decrease at 9% of max capacity per second until empty while increasing weapon damage by about 70% until the shield is drained.
Last Update to Borderlands 3?
When 2k Games added the Bunker Masters vault card to the game shortly after the announcement of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, many people saw this as the last game update that the game will get, as 2k Games did an end-of-life update with Borderlands 2 right before the release of Borderlands 3. While that update for Borderlands 2 included an additional story added to the game, the Bunker Masters vault card addition didn’t include any additional add-ons, disappointing some fans.
With that in mind, it would seem that 2k Games has put a close to the lifespan of Borderlands 3. However, 2k and Gearbox Software, the partner company that works on the Borderlands games, still have plans for more updates to Borderlands 3 in 2022. While there are plans in the works for the game, the exact details of those plans are still unknown.
The team is most likely focused on the release of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands currently. After the release of that game, we could see those planned updates to Borderlands 3. Speculation of some possible updates includes additional community carnage missions from Maurice or some other type of mini-event in the game. No matter what happens in the future for Borderlands 3, fans will have their hands full with all the current downloadable content that is already available for the game if they haven’t already completed them all
