Borderlands 3 Launching Maurice's Community Carnage Challenges this Friday

Starting October 14 at 9:00 AM PT, Borderlands 3 will be 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. 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, a SHiFT code will be shared out here 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.


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.
