Today we will release an update for Borderlands 3, which will be live on all platforms (with the exception of Mac, which is scheduled for April 2) by 12:00 PM PST, that adds support for the new campaign add-on Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock, new ECHOcast Moxxtail Events, unlocks a new Max Level and Guardian Ranks, and addresses some community concerns!
If you are experiencing any issues or want to provide feedback, please submit a ticket to support.2k.com. Below are the notes for today’s patch.
Here it is! Two capstones, everyone! We’re excited to see what interesting new builds everyone creates with these additional skill points!
Here are the first 3 new Guardian Rank Perks! In the Enforcer tree we’ve added “C’mon and Slam,” allowing you to use the slam at any height. This should make slam gear a lot more interesting. For the Survivor Tree, you can now enable “Too Angry to Die,” allowing any damage you do to enemies in Fight For Your Life to slightly extend your down time. Finally, in the Hunter tree we added “Harmageddon,” where additional damage is done to enemies that have received multiple static effects.
You can now immediately jump into new DLC content right from the menu! You’ll start the game with a character leveled up to where the DLC content would be unlocked, and you can start right in the new content.
Viewers can show their appreciation for their favorite streamers with Moxxtail Events, which let you convert Twitch Bits into in-game beverages that provide the streamer with various limited-time buffs. We have a full explanation of how they work in our Moxxtail Events guide, so be sure to check that out if you want to dabble in some Borderlands 3 mixology.
We saw the community feedback here and agreed that seeing gear below the level cap, when at the level cap, was not an ideal experience. Characters at max level should no longer receive gear at a level lower than their character through chests and drops from enemies that are also at the level cap.
Based on data and community feedback, we have adjusted the leveling experience post-Act 2 to better ensure that enemies are properly leveled to players as they move into the second half of the game. This change will only impact characters created after this patch is live.
Hotfixes for Guns, Love, and Tentacles
In order to prevent confusion when players load up Guns, Love, and Tentacles, we’ve identified some potential issues and have been able to pre-emptively put out hotfixes related to them. Make sure that your hotfixes are applied to benefit from the weapon buffs and to prevent the following from occurring. Check that the “Hotfixes Applied” sign at the main menu is active before loading into the game.
