Major Hotfixes: September 27th - Fl4k Crit Nerf, Zane Buff, Legendary Drop Nerfs and Much More

Recommended Posts

We have more hotfixes incoming today by 3:00PM PDT/midnight CEST, and they're basically bigger than the recent patch notes, with a whole lot of tuning! The big news is that there's a big pass at legendary gear coming soon, there's been some tuning for legendary drops reducing it a little already, Fl4k's insane critical build has been nerfed, Zane got big buffs to his action skills and Amara got some nerfs as well. The Hollow Point guardian perk that's been causing friendly fire issues has also been disabled for the moment.

Additionally we have some pretty big buffs elsewhere: to snipers overall; some tuning for pistols with nerfs to Jakobs and Torgue and buffs for Tediore, Dahl and CoV; big buffs to all things Maliwan and Atlas; more buffs for various weapon type and manufacturer combos; Graveward boss tweaks; and a lot more!

September 27 (source)

This week’s Borderlands 3 hot fixes, which will be live by or before 3:00 PM PDT today, target weapon & enemy balance, player characters, and adjusting chances of specific unique drops. Billions of guns were fired and after collecting some data, we wanted to balance some weapon types and weapon manufacturers. These adjustments are intended to even the playing field and increase build diversity for all Vault Hunters. Speaking of build diversity, Zane has received a gadget upgrade and we’re excited to see players create more unique builds with him! Many Crew Challenge enemies have specific loot drops but we received reports that some were not dropping them. We have made some modifications so they now have an increased chance of dropping their unique gear in addition to any other gear that may drop!

Weapon Hotfixes

Sniper Rifles

Sniper rifles deal high damage but felt a little cumbersome to use in certain scenarios. This change will increase their overall damage and increase usability in more combat engagements.

  • Critical Damage increased by 20%
  • Fire Rate increased by 15%
  • Time to Aim Down Sights (ADS) reduced by 15%
  • Time to Equip reduced by 20%

Pistols

Jakobs and Torgue Pistols were outperforming other manufacturers, dealing damage to groups of enemies at a much higher rate than other pistols. This change keeps their identity intact but reduces overall group control. TEDIORE, DAHL, and Children of the Vault Pistols have manufacturer penalties that affected their overall damage. Increasing their overall damage will overcome some of the penalties while retaining their unique gameplay style and feel.

  • Increased damage on all TEDIORE Pistols by 15%
  • Increased damage on all DAHL Pistols by 15%
  • Increased damage on all Children of the Vault Pistols by 20%
  • Reduced damage on Jakobs Pistols by 15%
  • Reduced damage on Torgue Pistols by 10%

Maliwan Manufacturer

Maliwan weapons had reduced overall damage because they applied elemental DoTs at a rate and damage greatly above other manufacturers. This effect was toned down before launch, but the overall damage was not sufficiently adjusted to compensate for the reduction in elemental DoTs. We’re adding back some of the overall damage and making the weapons faster so elemental builds can really take advantage of Maliwan weaponry.

  • All Maliwan Weapon Damage increased by 25%
  • All Maliwan Weapon Fire Rate increased by 20%

Atlas Manufacturer

Atlas weapons relied on a game loop that we felt gave players a greater advantage when used correctly. Turns out the loop is not used if the damage doesn’t compensate for the time to set up. So now damage on Atlas weapons should facilitate players using them in general on top of feeling badass when they take advantage of Atlas technology.

  • All Atlas Weapon Damage increased by 25%

Miscellaneous Adjustments

The Jakobs Assault Rifle change was to differentiate the Assault Rifle from the pistol as more of a mid to long range powerhouse. Since the Assault Rifles have low mag sizes compared to other Assault Rifles, they’re getting a slight increase to overall damage to compensate. DAHL SMGs had their Fire Rates adjusted down before launch but their damage was never sufficiently increased so they should feel more appropriate compared to other SMGs. And the Vladof Heavy Weapon damage has been increased to share in the full Heavy Weapon treatment.

  • Jakobs Assault Rifles Damage increased by 20%
  • DAHL SMG Damage increased by 10%
  • Vladof Heavy Weapon Damage increased by 25%
  • E-Tech TEDIORE Shotgun Damage increased by 50%

Legendary Modifications

We’re going to be making a larger, comprehensive Legendary gear pass but we have included the following changes. King’s and Queen’s Call were modified to lower the fire rate. The weapon has a limited burst shot count so overall feel of the gun isn’t dramatically affected.

  • King’s and Queen’s Call Fire Rate reduced by 50%
  • Firestorm and Storm base Charge Times were reduced to 1 second (down from 2)

Graveward

Graveward’s beam attacks did not properly scale based on level so at higher levels, the two beam attacks hardly phased players. Players will find his attacks to be more lethal now. In addition, Graveward is a very large enemy and is too easily susceptible to elemental damage unlike the other large bosses. Elemental damage on Graveward is now greatly reduced but to compensate, Graveward’s overall health was reduced.

  • Attacks of Graveward now scale based on level
  • Reduced overall health by 20%
  • Increased resistances to Elemental Damage
    - Elemental Chance Resistance increased by 70%
    - Elemental Resistances increased by 30%
    - Elemental DoT Duration taken reduced by 30%

Miscellaneous Changes

  • Hollow Point Guardian Rank has been temporarily disabled. We plan on addressing this further in a future patch.
  • Vault Hunters should no longer scream when affected by a DoT while shields are active.
  • Vending Machines will now be restocked with higher quality “Items of the Day”.
  • Adjusted a visual concern on Maliwan Shotguns with Cryo Element.
  • Legendary loot drops have been balanced throughout the game. Crew Challenge enemies will drop their intended specific loot, and some enemies like Troy and Rampager will be a bit more stingy and no longer drop Legendaries every kill.

Vault Hunter Adjustments

Zane

Zane’s gadgets were great at providing additional utility but lacked impact as players leveled up. We increased the Digi-Clone damage with all equipped weapon so the skill can scale better with players as they get to higher levels and harder content. The Drone requires a lot of player involvement to take full advantage of its damage output and increasing the base damage as well as the augments will greatly increase the Drone’s versatility and reward players even more for using it effectively.

  • Digi-Clone Damage Increased by 38%
  • Drone Damage increased by 50%
    - Cryo Bullets damage penalty removed
    - Drone Rocket damage increased by 50%
    - Almighty Ordnance Rockets damage increased by 75%

Amara

  • Guardian Angel health restoration reduced from 100% to 50%
  • Glamour damage penalty reduced from -30% to -10%

FL4K

Guerillas in the Mist’s bonuses greatly outweighed its penalty to the base skill. We don’t want to remove the playstyle completely, but the overall damage output had to be slightly adjusted because it was outperforming other builds. We’re monitoring the changes and may make another change to the ammo return in a future patch.

  • Guerillas in the Mist duration reduced from 8 seconds to 6 seconds
  • Guerillas in the Mist Critical Damage Bonus reduced from 50% to 25%

      Today's set of hotfixes addresses several bugs with Vault Hunter skills, and a whole lot of weaker legendaries got buffed, with even more buffs to come! We also got some overall weapon tuning, with sniper scopes  and some annointed affixes getting tweaked.

      As for the Vault Hunter changes specifically, Moze's Bloodletter class mod gets nerfed, her Means of Destruction (grenade and heavy regen) and Fl4k's Leave No Trace (ammo regen) have been re-buffed after the previous nerf and Amara and Zane get some skill fixes and buffs.
      October 10 (source)
      This week's Borderlands 3 hotfixes, which will be live on all platforms by or before 3:00 PM PDT today, address some player character passive abilities, gear balance, and some quality-of-life issues across the game. We're watching the character builds that players are creating and are looking through all the different gear available to make sure that there is something for everyone. This week, and in the coming weeks, there will be further adjustments to gear with the hopes of creating even more build types. Our goal is to adjust some of the less-used Legendary gear to bring them to the same level as some of the more popular options.
      In addition, we are addressing reported bugs and are hard at work continuing to address other performance concerns. Thank you so much for your feedback and support. Please continue to submit any bugs you run into at support.2k.com.
      Vault Hunter Adjustments  
      Amara
      We addressed a concern that Alacrity was only rewarding players one point worth of bonuses even if the player put in more than one point. In addition, we wanted Phasegrasp to be more accessible to all weapon types and play styles, so we doubled the range to grasp an enemy.
      Putting points into Alacrity now awards a reload speed bonus per rank Phasegrasp can now be used on targets further away and the cooldown is now instantly returned if a player misses Moze
      The Bloodletter class mod was creating some overwhelming synergies for Moze so we increased the delay and decreased the recharge rate of the shield to compensate.  This should help encourage the intended use of this class mod, which is to heal shields manually, not automatically. Means of Destruction’s re-trigger delay was adjusted again because the change limited other builds beyond creating infinite grenades. The infinite grenade bug will be addressed in a future patch but we wanted to enable other builds that use Means of Destruction so we dramatically reduced the re-trigger delay to a reasonable number.
      Bloodletter Class Mod
      - Increased the Recharge Delay by 150%
      - Reduced the Recharge Rate by 50% Addressed a reported bug with Close the Distance so the Action Skill Augment will now deal the intended Shock Damage Means of Destruction now has a re-trigger delay of 0.3 seconds FL4K
      The Leave No Trace change last week to FL4K was to forcefully inject the functionality of a cooldown into the ability. However, the value that was added was never the intended the value. We dramatically lowered it to retain the promise of the ability but with a cooldown that still allows players to gain ammo without dramatically removing a core aspect of a weapon’s gameplay loop.
      Leave No Trace now has a re-trigger delay set to 0.3 seconds Zane
      Death Follows Close will correctly update several Kill Skills after unlocking this ability Weapon Hotfixes
      The Lob's projectile tick damage is now 60% of base damage (up from 20%) and projectile speed decelerates faster to increase chances of hitting the same target multiple times Creeping Death damage increased by 200% Carrier damage increased by 60% Gunerang damage increased by 20% All Sniper Rifle Zoom Levels have been slightly reduced Long scopes on Jakobs, Children of the Vault, and DAHL Assault Rifles have also been slightly reduced Anointed Parts:
      - When Zane swaps positions with his Digi-Clone, the damage gained is increased to 130% (up from 75%)
      - When FL4K hits a target with Rakks, the target now takes 100% increased damage (up from 50%)
      - The Anointed part "Increased damage vs Badasses" no longer heals the player and now correctly adds bonus damage to Badass enemies Bug Fixes
      Pain, Terror, and Agonizer 9000 have been adjusted to have an increased chance to drop higher quality loot Addressed a reported bug with Dynasty Diner that could potentially halt mission progress for some players Addressed a reported concern that some players fell through the floors in various boss arenas Modified enemy spawn level discrepancies reported in the later parts of the campaign We noticed that some enemies were spawning at lower levels than expected in the later parts of the campaign. Players should no longer see enemies that are dramatically lower levels than other nearby enemies in certain areas.
      As a reminder, the current weekly event is the rare spawn hunt, with all the rares appearing pretty much 100% of the time and having a significantly increased drop rate for their legendaries, including some that have been buffed today - and we have all their locations right here.

      Here's a very handy set of images by a redditor whose name wouldn't be appropriate to post, marking all the rare mobs included in this week's anniversary Rare Spawn Hunt, which starts in half an hour (18:00 CEST)! Also don't forget, we're not sure if all of the mobs listed below have a 100% spawn rate, but some certainly do, as Gearbox' wording on the matter was unclear, so don't get disheartened if you don't find them at the marked locations immediately.

      You can also check out their loot here to see which ones are worth going after:
      Rakkman – Night Flyer, Legendary Pistol El Dragon Jr – Unleash the Dragon, Legendary Artifact Road Dog – Redline, Legendary Shotgun IndoTyrant – Random Customization Force Troopers – Random Legendary class mods Demoskaggon – Random Legendary Shield The Unstoppable – Band of Sytorak, Legendary Shield Thunk & Sloth – It's pi**, Legendary Grenade Mod Maxitrillion – The Horizon, Legendary Shotgun Borman Nates – Psycho Stabber, Legendary Pistol Princess Tarantella II – Hive, Legendary Rocket Launcher Mother of Grogans – Random Legendary Artifacts Red Jabber – Random Legendary Grenade Mod Urist McEnforcer – Masterwork Crossbow, Legendary Sniper Rifle   Here's a few to get you started, and head on over to the imgur gallery for all the locations!             Source: r/Borderlands3.

      The second week of events for the 10 year anniversary of the Borderlands franchise is arriving today/tomorrow (depending on your time zone) aka Tuesday at 9:00 AM PDT/6Pm CEST, and it's the Rare Spawn Hunt! We get to see a lot more of the stealthy creatures of Pandora and other planets, as the rare mobs will be much less so and their unique legendary loot will also be more frequent!
      Check out all the rare spawns involved and exactly what they drop below:
      Rare Spawn Week (source)
      We're continuing to celebrate Borderlands' 10-year anniversary with another week of in-game bonuses for Borderlands 3! This week is the Rare Spawn Hunt.
      If you've explored the untamed wilds and urban hideouts of Borderlands 3, you've likely found (and killed) a Rare Spawn. These named enemies are lurking around the many corners of the galaxy, and will sometimes show up on bounty boards wanted dead or… actually, just dead. But for the second week of our month-long Borderlands Anniversary Celebration, those Rare Spawns are about to be a lot less rare.
      Starting tomorrow, October 8 at 9:00 AM PDT, the Rare Spawn Hunt will begin courtesy of a quick micropatch. To ensure that the micropatch is successfully applied, verify that you're online then hang around the main menu for about a little bit. During the Rare Spawn Hunt, some Rare Spawns are guaranteed to show up in their designated locations and have an increased chance to drop unique Legendary loot. It's your chance to seek and destroy enemies you might've never known existed, or snag the unique Legendary weapons and gear you've been chasing after. Here's a list of all the Rare Spawns that are part of this week's event, along with their drops:
      Rakkman – Night Flyer, Legendary Pistol El Dragon Jr – Unleash the Dragon, Legendary Artifact Road Dog – Redline, Legendary Shotgun IndoTyrant – Random Customization Force Troopers – Random Legendary class mods Demoskaggon – Random Legendary Shield The Unstoppable – Band of Sytorak, Legendary Shield Thunk & Sloth – It's pi**, Legendary Grenade Mod Maxitrillion – The Horizon, Legendary Shotgun Borman Nates – Psycho Stabber, Legendary Pistol Princess Tarantella II – Hive, Legendary Rocket Launcher Mother of Grogans – Random Legendary Artifacts Red Jabber – Random Legendary Grenade Mod Urist McEnforcer – Masterwork Crossbow, Legendary Sniper Rifle The Rare Spawn Hunt is on from October 8 at 9:00 AM PDT to October 15 at 8:59 AM PDT when the next week's theme begins. The Borderlands Anniversary Celebration calendar is below—and if you want to know what this month of Borderlands 3 bonuses is all about, you can catch up here.

      Week 2 (October 8-14): Rare Spawn Hunt!
      Week 3 (October 15-21): Show Me the Eridium!
      Week 4 (October 22-28): Mayhem on Twitch!
      Week 5 (October 29 - November 4): Spooky Surprise!
      Good luck on your Rare Spawn Hunt this week, Vault Hunter. Those high-value targets have nowhere to hide, and their unique Legendary loot can be all yours.

      Here comes the next big batch of fixes for Borderlands 3, arriving later today, as we get the fix for the Hollow Point Guardian rank as it will be re-eneabled and not hurt allies anymore, the bank bug also gets a fix, there's some significant Vault Hunter tuning, as well as boss tweaks.
      Fl4k gets a buff to Rakk Attack, a nerf to ammo generation in Fade Away, a doubling of the stat bonus from Barbaric Yawp as well as improvements to pet quality of life. Moze gets her infinite grenade build nerfed by adding a re-trigger delay to Means of Destruction. Somewhat shockingly three bosses have had their difficulty lowered, as Gigamind, Katagawa Ball, and Billy the Anointed get health and shield reductions. There's also a whole bunch of smaller tweaks and bug fixes, so check out the full list below.
      October 3 (source)
      Today we’ll release both a patch and a hotfix for Borderlands 3 on all platforms by or before 3:00 PM PDT, with the patch addressing a number of reported concerns and the hotfix focusing on player character balance changes and tuning of some enemies and bosses.
      First up are the patch notes:
      Stability
      Addressed a reported issue where an infinite loop could occur when hitting the Guardian Rank experience ceiling General Fixes and Improvements
      The Hollow Point Guardian Rank skill no longer damages allies Hollow Point Guardian Rank skill has been re-enabled Addressed a reported issue where some players were unable to unlock the Ultimate Vault Hunter achievement on Xbox Addressed a reported issue where mouse functionality may have been lost when hot joining a friend’s session on PC Addressed a reported issue where some players’ inventory would not be saved in their bank This week’s Borderlands 3 hotfixes, which will be live on all platforms by or before 3:00 PM PDT today, contain some player character balance changes and address some player reported concerns regarding enemy behavior.
      Our goal is to make sure all three Action Skills for each Vault Hunter are viable, but we have noticed some skills have been outperforming others. To encourage more build diversity, we made some adjustments to FL4K and Moze this week.
      We also looked at a few boss fights and made balance changes to make their combats more enjoyable. Finally, we went over some enemy behaviors that could have affected mission progression and adjusted some attacks to happen with more frequency.
      Vault Hunter Adjustments
      FL4K
      Rakk Attack! is great for constant damage output, especially when paired with Anointed gear. The base skill still seems to be lacking, so Rakk Attack! now has a guaranteed status effect on any enemy that it damages. Leave No Trace was returning much more ammo than intended, and we have added a re-trigger delay to keep its ammo return within expectation. Barbaric Yawp has an increased bonus, as we didn’t feel that the amount of investment had an equal payoff. In addition, we felt that FL4K’s pets were demanding too much attention, which was interfering with players trying to stand still for any length of time, so we disabled the ability for them to move you around.
      Rakk Attack! status effect chance as been increased to 100%. Leave No Trace now has a re-trigger delay of 2 seconds Barbaric Yawp stat bonus increased by 100% Pets no longer push around player characters “Touch Pet” prompt is now a lower priority and should no longer interfere with looting or vending machines Moze
      Infinite Grenades is not an intentional build for Moze—even if it is hilarious. To lower the power (and spam) of this build, a re-trigger delay has been added to the grenade portion of Means of Destruction.
      Means of Destruction now has a re-trigger delay of 2 seconds Miscellaneous Changes
      Adjusted the balance of Gigamind, Katagawa Ball, and Billy the Anointed These three boss fights had concerns with their health and shields that made their combat loops more difficult than we intended. Gigamind had a little too much health, so that was reduced slightly. Katagawa Ball will no longer regenerate its shields; we found that while players contended with the adds during the fight, it would unfairly regenerate its shield, negating the players’ progress. Finally, Billy had 25% of his health removed; we agree that this fight often dragged on needlessly. We will be monitoring each of these bosses and may make further adjustments in the future.
      Bloated Rakks no longer spawn so many Rakklesnakes This change should make the Cistern of Slaughter in particular much more fun.
      Adjusted the cooldown values when they are displayed for Zane’s skills Amara’s Glamour will now turn enemies on each other, as described in the Action Skill Modified the loot spawn for Sera of Supremacy Spiderant Emperors occasionally wouldn’t drill back out of the ground, which created a potential progression blocker in the Proving Ground of Survival; we have adjusted this and the issue has been addressed Resolved an issue that could have prevented enemies from spawning while in Devil’s Razor Lavender Crawly’s physics were adjusted to prevent them exiting the world like a popped balloon Further safe guarded Apollo from being launched out of world as well The Rampager will no longer enter an idle at state at inappropriate times Saurian Slingers attacks were addressed Guardians now use all their attacks in Playthrough 2 Guardian Wraiths now reliably use all their ranged attacks NPCs in the Slaughter maps were reported to sometimes attempt to automatically revive players in the arena. Going forward they will no longer attempt to revive players Minimized the glow effect when opening Eridian ammo chests, can more easily see the ammo inside when opened

      The Borderlands series is almost as old as World of Warcraft and just like in WoW we're getting an anniversary event to celebrate! This month marks the 10 year anniversary of Borderlands 1's release and we're getting 5 weeks of bonus events! This week starts off with bonus boss loot, as each boss will have an additional legendary added to their loot pool and a greater chance to obtain that item.
      The next weeks will feature a rare spawn hunt, something called show me the eridium, mayhem on twitch and a spooky surprise which is sure to coincide with the Bloody Harvest event!
      Bonus Month (source)

As of now, Boss Week is live, which will be active until October 8, 2019 at 8:59 AM PDT when the following week's theme begins. During Boss Week, some bosses will have an increased chance to drop a unique Legendary item. Here's a full breakdown of Legendary loot drops by boss:
