There are two methods which we deliver updates to players: One will be the weekly changes that will cover smaller adjustments, and the other will be downloadable updates to the game that will include more impactful bug fixes and changes.
The changes included in this update will be live on all platforms by 9:30 AM PT on May 19, 2022. To confirm that you have the most recent hotfix, check the News screen in-game on the Main Menu or Pause Menu for the article with the version number listed above. If you don’t see the article in the News section after the update is live or the previous version number, please Exit the Game and relaunch. Please submit bug reports and feedback to support.2k.com.
This downloadable update will include support for the second Content Drop from the Season Pass, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands: Glutton’s Gamble*, and various bug fixes and performance improvements.

Enchantments – Spore Warden:
Adjusted a Spore Warden Enchantment from receiving a chance for an explosion on Gun and Ability damage to having the chance only with Gun Damage. We found that the bonuses had unintended damage scaling when combined with other abilities.
Blast Chill and Blast Gasp (for Graveborn) could overlap and scale damage out of the anticipated range in the end game when combined with other damage scaling. The changes below here are focused on making Melee Attacks a bit more powerful during the mid-game and in Chaos Chamber.
- Blast Chill has been adjusted to award a chance to release a Nova on Melee Attacks, instead of on all Melee Damage sources.
- Savagery has been increased to doing 6% per point of Melee Damage
- Damage received from attacks when close to enemies while using The Old Ways had been reduced to 40%
- Iron Squall Melee Attack speed has been increased to 4% per point in the skill
- Wrath of Nature has been adjusted to do 10% increased damage per point in the skill
- Increased Affinity’s Ability Damage to award 9% per point to give additional power in the early game
- Increased Bullseye’s Critical Hit Chance to 12% per point
- Changed Cleaning Flame Action skill to do Fire Melee Damage instead of just Melee Damage
- Increased Awe’s Critical Hit Chance to 13% per point
- Increased Awe’s Critical Hit Damage to 7% per point
- Increased Dedication Action Skill Cooldown Rate with Max Ward to 6%
- Increased Dragon Aura Elemental Damage to 5% per point
- Increased Rebuke Damage Reduction to 4% per point
- Increased Oath of Thunder Bonus Melee Damage to 6% per point
- Increased Fire Bolt Gun Damage to 10% per point
- Increased Storm Breath Damage Reduction to 15% per point
- Adjusted Blast Gasp Ability Damage to 7% per point to compensate for additional bug fixes to the skill
- Increased Harvest Bonus Dark Magic to 5% per point. This brings the bonus Magic Damage up to 30% total at max stacks.
- Increased Stain of the Soul to deal 5% bonus Dark Magic Damage per point
- Increased Ethereal Blade Melee Damage to do 150% of your Melee Weapon
- Increased Ghost Blade Weapon Damage to 85%
- Adjusted Double Knot to do 4% bonus Gun Damage on Spell Critical Hits
Weekly Event! This in-game, limited-time mini-event will be active from May 19 to June 2 at 9:00 AM PT.
- Activated the In-Game Mini Event: Armor Up!
- Increases the chance for armor to drop and the chance for the class mods to be for your current character.
- Note: Due to classes being distributed between Light, Medium, and Heavy armor types, Fatemakers are still likely to find plenty of armor that fits other classes at average a rate of 1 out of 3. For best results, pair up with friends that match your class/subclass!
The Chaos Chamber’s Featured Run has been updated! All aboard the chaos train, but be warned, this train doesn’t stop! At least, not for a while. The Leaderboard has been reset. Will you top the charts this week?
Featured Runs are available in the Chaos Chamber after you’ve completed the main story, and rotate weekly every Thursday at 9:00 AM PT. They’re the same for all players, so jump in and see how your run went compared to other Fatemakers!
- This run features Oculus and Mushroom Monster. We’ll let you figure out who the two bosses are this week! Get ready to take on a new extended run in the Chaos Chamber!
- We have adjusted the Wheel of Fate to drop more items along with Moon Orbs and Gold.
- Removed redundant quest markers for “The Slayer of Vorcanar”
- Removed the damage scaling increase from Hawkin’s Wrath from the May 5 Hotfix. This had to be removed to address a crash that we saw impacting Xbox players. We will be investigating how to properly address this in a future patch.
Frost Weapon Adjustments:
Frost does damage over time, but we found some Frost-only guns, like Liquid Cooling, that were mistakenly balanced as if that was not the case. We will be adjusting those weapons upwards so that they still roughly deal the same damage. Queen’s Cry specifically was mistakenly nerfed because elemental damage was included, but not during balancing. It is having its damage increased to compensate for that mistake. We are intending to adjust Fragment Rain in a later hotfix after we take a look at the SMG balance for Chaos Chamber.
- Adjusted Frost damage scaling for guns by -5.9%
- Liquid Cooling’s damage scaling increased by +7.8%
- Queen’s Cry damage scaling increased by +22.3%
