Borderlands 2’s First Headhunter Mission Begins Next Week


The main season pass campaign add-on packs for Borderlands 2 may be over and done with, but don’t think Gearbox is done pumping out DLC for you to burn your shoot-and-loot cash on.

Next Tuesday, October 22nd will mark the beginning of a new series of Headhunter add-on packs designed to offer shorter adventurers best played in a single sitting. After completing the missions you will be rewarded with the heads of slain bosses to wear as gruesome trophies of your triumph in battle. Are we now clear on why they decided to call these add-ons Headhunters?


The first Headhunter mission, TK Baha’s Bloody Harvest, available next week on Steam (Windows and Mac), PSN and Xbox Live for the low, low price of just $2.99, will send you shooting and looting into a creepy pumpkin patch, where you will face off against the mighty Pumpkin Kingpin. Your reward: the Kingpin’s giant pumpkin head on a stick. In the trick or treat spirit of Halloween, defeated enemies will even drop special candies that will provide different short-duration buffs like higher damage and quicker movement.

These Headhunter missions sure sound like a fun, cheap excuse to continue your Borderlands 2 obsession. And don’t forget that the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt is currently in progress with loads of cash and prizes up for grabs.
