There are 16 rare enemies hidden in Borderlands 3, originally these named enemies only had a small chance to spawn. Therefore, it was possible that you would never encounter them. After feedback from the community, Gearbox Software decided to change the spawn rate to 100%. This means that when you look at the following locations you will always encounter the named enemy. Each Rare Spawn has the chance to drop legendary loot.
