Farming Frenzy Event: Increased Loot Drops and Rare Spawns

Recommended Posts

We have a new event coming to Borderlands 3 tomorrow, with loot drops from dedicated sources and rare spawns being significantly increased! The farming fun starts at 9 AM PST, 6PM CET tomorrow, January 16th and lasts through the 30th, and you can also combine it with the other event that's happening in the same time period making the Maliwan Takedown raid easier for solo players, so now's the perfect time to farm anything you might be missing!

Farming Frenzy, Jan 16th - 30th (source)

Are you ready to get your farm on, Vault Hunter? No, not the *filtered* farming of Typhon DeLeon's resourceful ancestry—we're talking about battling bosses and unique enemies to earn some of Borderlands 3's best loot. During a limited-time mini-event we've dubbed Farming Frenzy, you can take advantage of increased drop rates and Rare Spawns showing up more often from January 16 to January 30.

For the next two weeks, you'll have extra incentive to farm enemies with dedicated loot drops. That includes repeatable bosses from the main story campaign, Proving Grounds and Circle of Slaughter arenas, and the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite, as well as named enemies including Rare Spawns, Hammerlock Hunts, and Targets of Opportunity. All these distinct, deadly baddies will be more likely to drop Legendary items from their respective loot pools—and as an added bonus, the Anointment rate for dropped gear has also been temporarily increased!

To help you track down your desired targets, Rare Spawn enemies will show up more often for the duration of the event. If you've been chasing after some of Borderlands 3's most sought-after Legendary drops and Anointed items, this is the time to jump in and score the loot that'll make your dream Vault Hunter build a reality.

The Farming Frenzy mini-event will commence on all platforms via a hotfix on Thursday, January 16 at 9:00 AM PST and will conclude when another hotfix deploys on Thursday, January 30 at 8:59 AM PST. That's the same timeframe as the scaling Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite event, which will be active on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC where the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite is available. To apply hotfixes, simply wait at the main menu until you see a "Hotfixes Applied" sign appear on the post behind your Vault Hunter.

Enjoy all the new additions to your arsenal over the next two weeks as the Farming Frenzy brings a bountiful crop of impressive loot drops!

      We have some buffs in today's hotfixes, both for loot and a Vault Hunter, as the Proving Grounds chest gets increased drops and Fl4k's Gamma Burst gets almost double it's radiation damage buff effect. There's also fixes for some bugs that could block story progression and Varkid texture changes:

      Today we will release a hotfix for Borderlands 3, which will be live on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC by 3:00 PM PST. This hotfix addresses various concerns reported by the community and some perceived progression blockers! To apply hotfixes, wait at the main menu until you see a sign that says “Hotfixes Applied”! If you are experiencing any issues or want to provide feedback, please submit a ticket to support.2k.com.
      Updated a texture for the Incendiary Badass and Super Badass Varkid Adjusted the chest rewards at the end of the Proving Grounds to be more rewarding at all tiers of completion With more players running the Proving Grounds for dedicated loot drops from the bosses, we noticed the chests not rewarding players as much as we intended. We’ve boosted these chests to reflect the effort players must take to complete the objectives.  Completing all of the objectives gives the best Legendary drop rate and scales down accordingly.
      Increased bonus radiation damage while Gamma Burst is active from 65% to 115% We’re happy to see the response to the boosted Anointment bonuses we released last week. After additional testing, we want to also boost the effects of Gamma Burst anointments for FL4K.
      Addressed a perceived progression blocker that could occur when the player travels to another map and back to Sanctuary after releasing Tannis during the mission “Sanctuary” Addressed a perceived progression blocker where players could not speak to Brick during the mission “Hammerlocked” in The Anvil Addressed a perceived progression blocker where Ember would sometimes not appear to assist the players in various mission steps

      We have some really big hotfixes today that will introduce both the Maliwan Takedown scaling event, which sees the raid difficulty scale to the number of players entering it, as well as the Farming Frenzy event, which will see more rare mobs spawned and increase legendary drop chances for all bosses and rares, both lasting until January 30th.

      But the big news is that anointed items for Fl4k, Moze and Zane are getting massive buffs to offset the power of Amara's, with some tripling the bonuses they offer! There's also some tuning for the bosses in the Handsome Jackpot, as some were on the weak side, a nerf for the Ion Cannon and more.

      As usual, the hotfixes go live somewhere between now and midnight CET, which usually means around 7PM.

      Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite and Farming Frenzy!
      This week starts the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite event! From when the hotfix goes live today until 8:59 AM PT on January 30, Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite will be scaled to the number of players! During this event, matchmaking will be set up to get you into the Takedown as quickly as possible. The Takedown is no easy feat, so make sure that you’re ready with the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite Quick Guide (keep in mind that this is written for the normal Takedown).
      In addition, during the Farming Frenzy mini-event running for the same duration, we’re making a few other changes. Rare Spawn enemies will also show up more often*, and we’re temporarily boosting the Anointed and Legendary drop rates! For the next two weeks, every boss in the game has boosted drop rates, including the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite bosses!
      May these two weeks be challenging, rewarding, and full of loot!
      *The Debt Collector is excluded from this list, as it’s tied to an achievement!
      Bug Fixes
      Addressed a reported concern with itemcard and hotfix sometimes not showing information correctly Addressed a reported concern that Judge Hightower was sometimes not dropping items from his dedicated item pool Adjusted the balance of Fabrikator, Freddie, ST4NL3Y, Constructor, Tony Bordel, Tricksy Nick, and Third Rail to provide a greater challenge Developer note – We noticed that the bosses in the Handsome Jackpot weren’t providing players with a satisfying challenge. We’ll be monitoring these bosses and make adjustments as needed in the future.
      The Ion Cannon now has a 5 second reload and consumes at least 6 ammo per shot The Ion Cannon is a strong weapon and we don’t want to change that, but it’s a little over performing. We’ve increased the reload time and made it consume more ammo but left its damage unchanged to still provide a strong burst of damage.
      Added collisions to prevent the Gunner from sometimes becoming stuck in Meridian Mercantile Added collisions to prevent players from sometimes escaping the map in various locations Increased the radius of the New-U station at The Arrogant Approach Increased Anointment Effectiveness for the Operative, Gunner, and Beastmaster
      In looking at the bonuses from Anointments, we felt that some were not providing enough of a bonus. We’ve increased the bonuses on the Anointments below.
      Moze the Gunner
      While Auto Bear is active, deals 75% (from 20%) bonus incendiary damage After exiting Iron Bear, the next 2 magazines will have 125% (from 40%) bonus incendiary damage After exiting Iron Bear, gain 160% (from 120%) increased Splash damage for 18 seconds When entering and exiting Iron Bear, nova damage increased Zane the Operative
      While Barrier is active, Accuracy is increased by 60%, and Critical Hit damage is increased by 70% (from 30%) While SNTL is active, gain 100% (from 50%) of damage as bonus Cryo damage FL4K the Beastmaster
      When exiting Fade Away, nova damage increased After using Rakk Attack!, gain 50% (from 25%) critical hit damage for a short time

      We have the first hotfixes of the new year and they bring news of the scaled down Maliwan Takedown for solo players, which will now take place from January 16th to the 30th, after the recent delay. We also get a lot of fixes for Fl4k's skills and a nerf for those hated Anointed Enforcers (although it's only temporary).

      Addressed a reported concern that FL4K's Furious Attack was sometimes not applying bonuses to pet damage as expected Addressed a reported concern that Rakkcelerate was sometimes not applying the cooldown modifier as stated on the skill's description Addressed a reported concern that Cheap Tip's total weapon shield capacity was sometimes not appearing in the tooltip on the item card Addressed a reported concern that The Arbalest of Discipline was sometimes spawning with just shields Anointed Enforcer
      We found an issue where Anointed Enforcer's immunity abilities would sometimes cause them to be more difficult than intended. We have lowered their health temporarily as we investigate further and find a permanent solution.
      Temporarily lowered the health on Anointed Enforcer Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite
      Thank you everyone for your patience as we work on the scaled Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite event. We were unable to bring it to you during New Years, but we are looking to start the event next week!
      From January 16 to January 30, you'll be able to look forward to a slightly easier Takedown as you aim to grab as much of that loot as you can! If you've wanted to experience Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite but were having a hard time making progress or finding a party, this is the perfect opportunity to jump in and wreak havoc on Maliwan's most elite soldiers and robots. After January 30, we're bringing the event back up to its intended difficulty level.

      Borderlands 3's first big/story DLC has arrived, as Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot is live now! With a brand new story campaign, side-quests, crew challenges, legendaries, skins, and a whole lot of new enemies and locations, this first large chunk of the BL3 DLC pie, and you can start the quest aboard Sanctuary 3 in Moxxi's bar, obviously! There are 6 zones of differing sizes, one being very large, and there is no level cap increase or new skills to be had, however a lot of the new legendaries are very, very good and the loot is plentiful. The DLC is priced at $14,99 and is included in the season pass.

      We also got some hotfixes today, focusing on the Maliwan Takedown raid and matchmaking improvements in case you missed it. You can also check out our Vault Hunter guides in case you need a good build for the new content.
