The continuing occasion in Borderlands 3, Damaged Hearts Day, is all about discovering floating hearts on the earth and taking pictures them. Shoot sufficient and you progress up a listing of rewards, topping out on the Marriage ceremony Invitation.

Whereas I’m bummed that a few of my favourite Borderlands 3 weapons haven’t survived the nerfhammer, it’s nice that even quick occasions like Damaged Hearts Day are serving up new toys to play with. The Marriage ceremony Invitation is an absolute beast that, in contrast to beforehand well-liked long-range weapons just like the Lyuda, really appears like a sniper rifle. I’m solely praying that it survives a couple of updates earlier than probably getting scaled down.
