Loot the World and be Merry!

 

Are you bored with the holiday shopping? Do you wish for something to hold your interest while you duck, dive, and dip through the holiday crowds? 2K games and Gearbox Software have you covered. This past week they released the Loot the World app, which is available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play. The app is free and will have you grabbing loot for your characters in Borderlands 2. The app syncs with the email you used for the Shift profile and will transfer loot to you in game. How do you get this wonderful loot you say, simply by scanning QR codes. Those wonderful little black and white pixelated gems are your keys to getting weapons, shields, and a handful of other goodies. The interface is quite simple with 4 tabs at the bottom, one being your inventory which can hold up to 20 items. Once you have snagged something you want, you spend stamps to send it to your character in Borderlands 2. There are plenty of ways to get stamps either by QR codes on products or through Randy Pitchford’s Twitter periodically. I went around Target with my fiancee the other day and was scanning QR codes while she shopped, I got to play a game, she got to do Christmas shopping; a win for both. You can check out the few screens of the app below I took with my phone, and it is available for free in both the App Store and Google Play, unfortunately it is not available for Windows Phone.

 

Have your say
