Borderlands Legendary Loot Increase

Gearbox Software increases the legendary drop rate by x3 for Borderlands 2, Borderlands the Pre-Sequel & Borderlands the Handsome Collection.

After last month’s Legendary Drop Rate survey, Gearbox wanted to find a drop rate that felt right for the players.

Over the period of April 9 till May 13 they weekly changed the drop rates of the legendary loot in Borderlands 2, Borderlands the Pre-Sequel & Borderlands the Handsome Collection.

After analyzing all this data and going over all the surveys Gearbox found a drop chance that players were comfortable with. The drop rate is more than just a number of getting a certain piece of legendary gear. A legendary weapon has to have some value. So the highest increase in that period was making the gear non-rewarding. So not too high and not too low.

The new drop rate will be made possible via a hotfix* and is already live. Later down the line, the drop rate will be hard coded with an upcoming patch.

Do you need help finding some of the new legendaries inside the Claptastic Voyage DLC?

Happy Looting!
