Borderlands 3 Has Fixed An Issue In Bounty Of Blood, And Mayhem Damage Is Currently Higher Than Intended

Mayhem mode is a bit more difficult than intended after a recent change, Gearbox admits, and this is being monitored.

Borderlands 3 has received a hotfix, detailed on the game's official site, to address an issue in Bounty of Blood and with the Legendary pistol Lucky 7. This quick fix has dealt with two issues, but Gearbox has admitted that there's a bigger problem that was introduced into the game with a recent update.

Here are the two changes in the hotfix, which is now live on all platforms. The first one is, presumably, a reference to a clipping issue.

  • Patched a hole in the Atrium of the Bounty of Blood campaign add-on to prevent players from busting through the wall and seeing the other side
  • Addressed a reported concern that some damage effects from Lucky 7 sometimes did not function after exiting Iron Bear

The other issue Gearbox has identified is perhaps a bigger deal, but how it will be addressed might depend on how a change that was made by accident is received by players.

Gearbox writes that some players are interested in seeing shields that damage enemies being scaled in Mayhem difficulty modes. While the developer is looking to do this in a future update, they discovered that a recent change that lets Mayhem gear spawn in chests and vending machines has also accidentally been applied to enemy weapons.

This means that enemies can be equipped with Mayhem 10 weapons, doing massive damage to your character, which is not what Gearbox intended with the update. "We are monitoring how this is affecting difficulty in higher levels of Mayhem and are looking into how it could be addressed in a future patch," the post reads.
