Torgue shotgun sticky ammo damage has also received a nerf.
Gearbox Software has released its first hotfix for Borderlands 3 post-launch. This isn’t the update that will resolve performance issues, unfortunately. However, it does go about patching several loot farming spots and toning down the effectiveness of sticky ammo damage from Torgue shotguns.
Pretty much every loot farming spot has been affected in this hotfix. Eridium in the Voracious Canopy now grows less frequently. The Chupacabratch drops less loot. Even the Loot Tinks near the Mansion on Eden-6 have had their spawn rate “adjusted” to make them more special.
If that weren’t enough, the amount of loot drops has been scaled down in Mayhem Mode. This could indicate that less loot will drop but it will be of higher quality overall. We’ll have to wait and see. It’s not all bad though – the sounds of pain that Troy makes during his boss fight have been removed, thankfully. Check out the full hotfix notes below.
Hotfixes are applied at the Game Menu when you start the game. To ensure that the hotfix has been applied, go to the in-game menu and see if “updates are available” showing.
