Borderlands 3 “Bandit Mask” AR Lenses Let You (Digitally) Slap a Mask on Any Face, Available Now on Snapchat

Gearbox and 2K today unveiled a brand new social tool for aspiring bandits everywhere: the Borderlands 3 “Bandit Mask” AR lenses, available now on Facebook and Snapchat.

These camera filters are designed to support both the front-facing and selfie cameras on your phone, and they can stick a mask on pretty much anything with a face (or something that at least looks like a face). Your face, your mum’s face, that unsuspecting celebrity on TV – no face is safe. Just point, shoot, and share!

To join in on the mayhem and try the lenses for yourself, simply follow these instructions:


There are a couple of different ways to access the Bandit Mask filter on Snapchat:

  • Open your Snapchat app, long-press on the screen to bring up the filters, then search for the “Bandit Mask” option.
  • Open your Snapchat app, point your camera at the below Snapcode, then press and hold on the Snapcode on your screen to scan it.


We also have a couple of different options for you if you want to use the Bandit Mask filter on Facebook:

  • Click on the above link to automatically open the Facebook camera and filter if you’re on your phone with the Facebook app installed. If you’re not on your phone, clicking on the link will instead send a notification to your Facebook app.
  • Open your Facebook app, open the Facebook camera, tap the smiley face button to access filters, choose the “Bandit Mask” and go make some mayhem.
