Gearbox Software is at it again, offering up some new skins and a SMG for your characters in Borderlands 2. This time it is in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Here is how Gearbox Software describes the holiday in Borderlands terms:
Each year, around this time, the Zaford clan takes a break from their war with the Hodunk bandit family to celebrate their good fortune and honor those that have passed on, such as that time Scooter buried their son alive in a shallow grave.
During this time, those who play Borderlands 2 while connected to the internet will see a temporary increase in the drop rates and rarity of shields! Plus, Absorb shields will have a better chance to absorb enemy bullets and Booster shields will have a higher chance of dropping a shield Booster when damaged.
In addition, the Zafords have prepared special gifts! To receive your celebratory Zaford gear, including special green skins for each character and a Chulainn SMG that will be the the same level as (and appear in the backpack of) the first character you load, enter the SHiFT codes below into Borderlands 2:
PC / Mac Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: KTCBJ-C9RTC-BSFTJ-33TT3-FBWHF
Xbox 360 Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: KJCJ3-RCWC6-5K9BF-WFBT3-3WFKK
PlayStation 3 Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: CTK3B-99K3J-XXKW3-ZTWTJ-HJH5J
These codes will only be active from today, March 14th through Sunday, March 17th at 11:55 CT – so make sure you get these codes in sometime this weekend or you will miss out! Also, if you haven’t heard yet…there is a new character being teased for Borderlands 2 as well. More detail on that as soon as we hear more!
