Borderlands 3 Hotfixes: April 9, 2020

Posted: Apr 9 2020

Today we will release a hotfix for Borderlands 3, which will be live on all platforms by 12:00 PM PST. In this week’s hotfixes, Rare Chest Riches returns and brings a new mini-event, Loot Monster Mayhem, in addition to buffs for the Gunner. 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.

Slot Machine Mania and Trials Take-All mini events end at 9:00 AM PST today.

With this week’s hotfix, we are continuing the Co-Op Loot Drop event with two mini-events! Rare Chest Riches returns, along with a new mini-event: Loot Monster Mayhem! The Rare Chest Riches Event increases your chances of receiving Legendary items from Rare Chests. Loot Monster Mayhem increases your chance of seeing Loot enemies in the game and increases their chances to drop Legendary gear!
