Weapon Anointments Adjusted with Borderlands 3 Update

Updated Anointed Perks - Borderlands 3
Updated Anointed Perks - Borderlands 3

With the June 11th, 2020 update, Gearbox Software adjusted some of the anointments in Borderlands 3. Several of them were not providing enough value and therefore made them non-viable for players. Since Gearbox wants to create enough build diversity, they are adjusting several of the Anointments in-game. In this article, I’m going to give you an update an what has changed.

Patch Notes

  • Airborne Anointments
    • We’ve increased the effectiveness of the While Airborne Damage, Critical Damage, and Fire Rate Anointment.  The Airborne Fire Rate Anointment had a bug as well, which is being fixed to substantially improve this Anointment.  We’re anxious to see what builds will be used in Takedown at the Guardian Breach in particular.
  • Slide Fire Rate
    • It had a bug as well that prevented it from providing the intended bonus; we’ve resolved that in these hotfixes.
  • Action Skill End
    • A number of these types of Anointments have been buffed to make them more useful for more builds.  Fire Rate, Next 2 Mag Bonus Damage, and Splash Damage have all received damage increases.
  • Auto Bear Active Incendiary Damage
    • This has received a significant buff to make Iron Bear builds more effective.

Buffed Anoints

  • While Airborne, Critical Damage is increased
    • This Anoint previously provided a 25% increase. With the update, this has been boosted to 60%. Since this anoint is multiplicative you can really crank up your damage by simply bunny hopping.
  • While Airborne, Damage is increased
    • This Anoint previously provided a 30% increase. With the update, this has been boosted to 50%. This anoint is also multiplicative, therefore, the buff is pretty significant.
  • While Airborne, Fire Rate is increased
    • This Anoint previously provided a 20% increase. With the update, this has been boosted to 30%. The Airborne Fire Rate Anointment previously had a bug as well, which is fixed to substantially improve this Anointment.
  • On Action Skill End, Fire rate and reload speed is increased for a short time.
    • This Anoint previously provided an 11% increase to the fire rate and a 26% increase to the reload speed. With the update, they have been boosted to 25% Fire Rate and 29% Reload Speed. This boosts your DPS for a short time.
  • On Action Skill End, The next 2 magazines will have additional bonus [Element] damage.
    • This Anoint previously provided a 50% increase. With the update, this has been boosted to 100%. This boost is pretty significant as this anoint is multiplicative.
  • On Action Skill End, Splash Damage is increased for a short time.
    • This Anoint previously provided a 125% increase. With the update, this has been boosted to 200%. This boost is also pretty significant as this anointment is also multiplicative.
  • [MOZE] While Auto Bear is active, deal bonus incendiary damage
    • This Anoint previously provided a 75% increase. With the update, this has been boosted to 130%. This should make Iron Bear builds more effective.

Fixed Anointments

  • Gain 300% increased Weapon Damage against enemies above 90% Health.
    • In the patch notes Gearbox mentioned they “Addressed a reported concern that the Anointment “300% Damage above 90%” didn’t work properly with non-flesh enemy types.” This anointment has been adjusted so that it works as described. All life bars are now calculated for and you will no longer get the bonus for the full duration of the additional life bars. [in-depth guide]
  • While Sliding, Damage is increased by 40%
    • This anointment wasn’t providing the intended damage increase as the game tried to calculate the speed of the slide and adjust the damage increase properly. This way you were not always getting the full damage buff of the anoint. This has been fixed with the update.
