Borderlands 3 continues to offer destructive new ways of enjoying the game with the new update, offering new weapon buffs and a change to its Bloody Harvest event too. Check out the full patch notes below.

Players are set to receive a massive boost to many of the game’s weapons as a host of buffs are being dished out. The additions include: Adding more damage, decreasing recoil, increasing the size of magazines, increasing accuracy, and much more.

Furthermore, the game’s “Blood Harvest” event – which adds new themed enemies, missions, and challenges – is receiving a minor tweak in that anointments will drop more frequently.


There’s also a host of changes to grenades, with damage buffs / nerfs being applied, which should be a welcome change, but we’ll have to wait and see how it plays out.
