Borderlands 3 New Event “Farming Frenzy” Starting Tomorrow

Share this:

Gearbox Software has announced the Borderlands 3 new event coming to the game and it’s due tomorrow! Called “Farming Frenzy,” this mini event runs from January 16 and all the way to January 30!

According to Gearbox, rare enemies are guarantted to appear, and these enemies’ specific Legendary gear will drop at a higher than normal rate when they’re slain. Also, Takedown at Maliwan Blacksite will be “more manageable” for small squads and solo players.

Here’s a rundown of Farming Frenzy:

  • 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).

It’s unclear whether this is a server-side update or if players wil be required to download a patch. If there is a patch, we’ll let readers know what’s in it once it’s out.

If you haven’t picked up the game yet, go read our review and see why we thought so highly of it.
