How to Earn Loot from ECHOcast
Watch Out For Rare Chest Events
Keep an eye for any Rare Chests that a Streamer finds! These are usually guarded by powerful enemies. Once a rare chest is found, a notification on the bottom right of the screen will appear!
Join The Event As Fast As You Can
Once the notification for the Rare Chest appears, hit "Join Event" as soon as you can! You will only have 30 seconds to join once the chest is found. You will not be able to join once the timer expires!
Winners Are Chosen At Random
Once the timer expires, a number of winners will be randomly selected by the ECHOcast extension from the pool of all participants. The rare items will be sent directly to your in-game mailbox once the game releases.
Items Scale To Your Level
You will be able to redeem the items from the in-game mailbox of Borderlands 3. Keep in mind that the items you acquire this way will scale to your level once you claim the items.
