Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt: Cash And Fabulous Prizes
I don't like microtransactions. Know what I like? The reverse of microtransactions.
Which is basically playing well and receiving real-world cash and prizes, rather than paying real-world money to earn in-game prizes. 2K Games has announced the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt, which kicks off on October 11 at 10 a.m. EDT and runs until November 7 at 5 a.m. EDT.
Each day during that period, there will be a special daily target. Players can eliminate that target once a day, which would result in a grand total of 28 entries. That will boost your chances! There will be weekly prizes handed out, and one player will win $50,000 while four others will win varying amounts that adds up to another $50,000. But it doesn't end there; other awesome prizes include:
- PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment systems with copies of Borderlands 2 Vita once released
- Customized Borderlands 2 XP SEVEN headsets from Turtle Beach
- Nvidia Shield PC Streaming setup with a custom painted 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 of all 2K titles on Steam -- past, present, and future
How sweet is that? If you're interested, log in to the special website linked above using your SHiFT account information. There will also be community goals, which will reward players with a "uniquely super-awesome gun" if they can cumulatively kill enough of a certain type of enemy. Just bear in mind that only US gamers are eligible for the cash and prizes.
