Besides that, Mayhem Mode 2.0 and Revenge of the Cartels seasonal event will be coming. Mayhem Mode will be getting changes to the user interface, additional modifiers and Mayhem-specific weapon drop system.
For the seasonal event, Maurice will be tasking you to take out cartel operatives throughout the Borderlands.

The event will last six weeks and can be toggled off and on throughout the event. Details here.
The Broken Hearts Day seasonal event will also return for an encore until 8 April, so go and break those hearts and collect unique gear!
