Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine Explained
Maurice’s Black Market Vending machine sells Top-Tier Legendary Loot. This hidden vending machine was added to the game through a free update that came alongside the release of the Director’s Cut. The Black Market instantly became a highly sought-out vending machine in Borderlands 3, however, the shop’s location changes on a weekly basis.
Gearbox Software will be hiding this vendor each week and will fill it up with a unique top-tier loot pool. The Black Market can appear all over the BL3 universe but it won’t appear in any of the DLC maps. So if you just own the base game you can still enjoy this as well.
Where is Maurice?
Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine is located in the Cathedral of the Twin Gods on the planet Pandora this week. You can find the vendor near the pipeline inside The Outer Sanctum. Check out the map below for guidance.

What items does the Black Market sell?
Every week Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine changes location but it also changes its loot pool. Gearbox Software creates a unique loot pool, especially for the Black Market that’s worth picking up. They can put anything they want in the vending machine.
The Black Market can have multiple versions of a piece of gear. This way you can easily pick up an item that suits your needs without having to go to Crazy Earl to Reroll the anoint.
This week’s Black Market Weapons & Items
You can purchase the black market items with regular money but they can be pretty expensive, so you better stack up on cash. Weapon Parts, Elements, and Anoints will be different each time you visit.

Borderlands 3 Black Market Gone
Did the Black Market Vending Machine disappear and not show up at the location mentioned above? This means you already interacted with the machine. It doesn’t matter if you made a purchase.
Gearbox Software implemented a timer to prevent you from farming the vendor. You are safe if you stay in the same map but once you travel to a new location, the vendor is gone.
If you want to farm Maurice’s vending machine again, you will need to wait 30 minutes (in-game) before you it reappears again. This reset requires you to reload the map.
Gearbox Software will hide the Black Market at a new location every Thursday at 9:00 AM PT. So if the vending machine isn’t appearing at the location above anymore. I’m probably looking for its new location, check back in a bit as I’ll update this guide as soon as possible.
