Vault Hunters:

This week, we took a look at some character skills that were occasionally not properly reporting what was happening in-game. For these instances, we have updated the description text to show the actual in-game values and removed an instance of a penalty that was not reported on its skill description.

  • Addressed reported instances of the Gunner’s skill descriptions sometimes showing inaccurate values

- “Hell on Rails” skill description was occasionally showing +30% Fuel Drain instead of the actual +8%
- “Corrosive Sabot Round” skill description was occasionally showing -50% Railgun Damage and Fuel Drain instead of the actual -33%

  • Addressed a reported concern that the Gunner’s “Active Tracking” skill was receiving a 50% penalty to damage per missile and ammo capacity that was not listed in the skill description. We have removed this penalty
  • Fixed a typo with the Beastmaster’s “Furious Attack” skill in English
  • Addressed a reported concern that Blood Cooled Jackbot’s beam attacks were bypassing the Operative’s barrier


We are also looking at some of our Legendary weapons to get them up to par as part of the impending release of Mayhem 2.0, one of the Spring 2020 content additions we discussed at PAX East.
