The Latest Borderlands 3 Patch Notes – Weapon Nerfs, Bug Fixes and more

The latest patch notes for Borderlands 3 are a great fix for bugs, and had arrived live by 3 pm PDT / 6 pm EDT / 11 pm BST on Thursday, October 17. It also adresses Vault Hunter abilities, and weapon improvements.

“After looking through the data, we found that some pieces of Legendary gear were greatly outperforming others and felt they were limiting builds instead of increasing them,” says a statement by Gearbox on the official site of the game.

“In addition, some of the damage output of Legendary gear limited the growth in combat engagements for the future so we tuned everything to an acceptable median. We expect all Vault Hunters to be able to create amazing builds and we want to support that with more ways to grow and reach those power levels.”
