Borderlands 3 hotfix January 9 2020 patch notes

The January 9, 2020 hotfix for Borderlands 3 is a small one with only a handful of changes. Chief among these changes is a health reduction for the Anointed Enforcer. The development team has indicated that the Anointed Enforcer’s immunity was causing difficulty for some players, and temporarily lowered its health to make things a little easier.

The January 9 hotfix also marks the return of the Takedown at Maliwan Blacksite event. Things should be a little easier this time around, but only for a matter of time: Gearbox says the Maliwan Blacksite event will return to its full difficulty starting at the end of the month. Finally, there are a few bug fixes to help round out the overall mix.

Here are the full patch notes for the January 9, 2020 Borderlands 3 hotfix as provided by the team at Gearbox Software.

Bug Fixes

  • Addressed a reported concern that FL4K’s Furious Attack was sometimes not applying bonuses to pet damage as expected
  • Addressed a reported concern that Rakkcelerate was sometimes not applying the cooldown modifier as stated on the skill’s description
  • Addressed a reported concern that Cheap Tip’s total weapon shield capacity was sometimes not appearing in the tooltip on the item card
  • Addressed a reported concern that The Arbalest of Discipline was sometimes spawning with just shields

Anointed Enforcer

We found an issue where Anointed Enforcer’s immunity abilities would sometimes cause them to be more difficult than intended. We have lowered their health temporarily as we investigate further and find a permanent solution.

  • Temporarily lowered the health on Anointed Enforcer

Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite

Thank you everyone for your patience as we work on the scaled Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite event. We were unable to bring it to you during New Years, but we are looking to start the event next week!

From January 16 to January 30, you’ll be able to look forward to a slightly easier Takedown as you aim to grab as much of that loot as you can! If you’ve wanted to experience Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite but were having a hard time making progress or finding a party, this is the perfect opportunity to jump in and wreak havoc on Maliwan’s most elite soldiers and robots. After January 30, we’re bringing the event back up to its intended difficulty level.

The January 9, 2020 Borderlands 3 hotfix is set to go live on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One starting at 3:00 p.m. Pacific time.
