Borderlands 3: How to Complete Vault Card Fast | Game Rant
The Director’s Cut DLC for Borderlands 3 has added the first of three Vault Cards to the game, with players now able to work toward all the Fallen Heroes rewards. With exclusive Legendary gear, cosmetics, and in-game currency up for grabs, Borderlands 3 fans will certainly want to have the card active when playing the game.
The Fallen Heroes Vault Card and every future Vault Card will operate on an XP system. Borderlands 3 fans will see an extra progression bar added under their main level and Guardian rank, with this bar filling up quicker the more XP is earned. As such, players will need to make use of some clever farming strategies to obtain rewards at a faster rate. There are also a few XP buffs and a special reward trick to keep in mind as well.

Earning XP Quickly
Borderlands 3 fans can gather a ton of XP in Circles of Slaughter or through boss farming. For Circles of Slaughter, the Slaughter Shaft arena is the most reliable way to get XP due to the sheer number of enemies available in the tight space. With most foes being flesh-based with shields, electric and fire weaponry works wonders here. As for the boss farming, Graveward is a perfect choice since it should be easy enough for maxed-out players to bring down. It is also worth noting that Mayhem Mode has no impact on XP earn rates, meaning that players only looking to progress their Vault Cards should turn the difficulty option off.
There are also daily and weekly challenges that Vault Card owners complete. These are simple enough to work on, and players should keep them in mind whenever they are grinding a boss or hordes of smaller enemies. As for XP buffs, players should equip the Moxxi’s Endowment artifact if they have it unlocked. A maxed-out version will provide a 12% boost to XP. The Borderlands Science machine also offers 25% XP boost tokens that players can redeem in-game. The effects of the artifact and tokens stack, meaning that players can boost their XP earn rates by 37% with both equipped. While the tokens last a limited amount of time, they can be redeemed as much as players like.
The Smartest Unlock Strategy
As shown by YouTuber RestAssured, there is a specific unlock strategy players should be using when it comes to Vault Cards. Every time that Borderlands 3 players unlock a Vault Card reward, they have a chance of getting a Vault Card Key. These Keys can be used to redeem any reward from the Fallen Heroes lineup, be it a cosmetic or one of the new Director’s Cut Legendary weapons. However, players should prioritize the rewards that cost the least first.
This is because there is duplicate protection for each reward, ensuring that gamers can only get each item once. As such, once all the single key rewards are obtained, players only have a chance of receiving more expensive rewards. Further, once all the cosmetic items are unlocked, players are guaranteed to get one of the Legendary items, Eridium, or the coveted Diamond Keys. With this strategy, players can get better quality rewards quicker. When combined with smart use of XP buffs, challenge completion, and proper farming strategies, the cards should be a lot easier to progress through.
Borderlands 3 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

Black Widow Cosplayer Looks Pretty Much Identical To Scarlett Johansson
Marvel Studios’ Black Widow is finally going to theatres this summer. The film has been delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is now coming out over a year after its originally intended release date. Fans are eager to see a solo adventure focused on the deadly assassin-turned-Avenger, but until then, check out this cosplayer who bears an uncanny resemblance to Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson.
The cosplayer, who goes by ‘laurossbw’ on Tik Tok, uploaded a before and after video of themselves in the cosplay. She’s also wearing Black Widow’s new white suit, which can be seen in the trailers. A deadly KGB-assassin-turned-superhero, Black Widow, a.k.a. Natasha Romanoff, made her live-action debut more than a decade ago in the 2010 sequel Iron Man 2, where she was portrayed by Johansson.
In Iron Man 2, Johansson plays a disguised S.H.I.E.L.D. operative assigned to keep tabs on the always-volatile Tony Stark. From there, Johansson returned for the first Avengers film, making her a founding member of the famous Marvel superhero team. Even though it’s taken over a decade for the character to get her own solo film, Black Widow has appeared alongside her fellow Avengers in other MCU films such as Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Avengers: Infinity War.
Sadly, Black Widow died in Avengers: Endgame when she sacrificed herself to obtain the soul stone, one of the six infinity stones that the Avengers needed to reverse the blip. Some fans felt that her death was unceremonious for a character who dated back to the beginning of the MCU. Black Widow was, after all, one of the founding members of the Avengers, and some fans felt her death should have been just as tragic as Tony Stark’s. Some even felt that her counterpart Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) should have been the one to make the sacrifice, but clearly, Marvel had future plans for the archer. It didn’t help that Natasha Romanoff was the only female founding Avenger and that Guardians of the Galaxy character Gamora, another strong female MCU character, received the same death in the previous film.
While the MCU has a tendency to focus more on the male superheroes, they did finally have a female-led film with Captain Marvel. Still, some fans felt a Black Widow movie should have come first and that the character had earned her own solo adventure. More than ten years later, Marvel is finally pursuing a Black Widow film, which will have to be a prequel due to the character’s death in Endgame. The film is reportedly set after Captain America: Civil War and before Avengers: Infinity War, exploring Natasha Romanoff’s complicated past as she goes up against a new villain, the dreaded Taskmaster.
Black Widow is scheduled to be released on July 9, 2021, simultaneously in theaters and through Disney Plus with Premier Access.
