Borderlands 3 Legendary Items Become More Accessible During Limited-Time Mini-Event Starting Today

The game’s best gear will be that much easier to acquire during the time-limited ‘Farming Frenzy’ mini-event. This runs from January 16th through the 30th.

Hoping to snag a specific Legendary drop? Still, looking to cross some of those rare and exotic enemies off your list? Well good news, Vault Hunter: for the next two weeks, the Borderlands 3 farming frenzy is on!

Not only will rare enemies be guaranteed to appear, their specific Legendary gear will drop at a higher than normal rate when you defeat them. Additionally, Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite will be more manageable for small squads and solo players, meaning its bosses (and their Legendary loot) will be yours for the taking.

Here are the specifics of this limited-time mini-event:

  • Rare spawns are guaranteed to appear;
  • All enemies with dedicated loot pools (e.g. rare spawns, named bosses, etc.) have a higher chance of dropping Legendary gear from their dedicated loot pool;
    • Additionally, the Anointment rate for that gear has been increased;
  • Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite’s difficulty will now scale to match the size of the player party rather than defaulting to four-player difficulty (available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One only).

Again, these changes go live today, January 16th, and will be reversed on Thursday, January 30th. That means you have two weeks of prime loot hunting to kick off the new year. So get out there and level up your arsenal!
