The ‘Rare Chest Riches‘ event that increases the drop rates of rare chests in Borderlands 3 runs from today until February 14, 2020. During this time period, vault hunters will have a better chance to receive a legendary item when they open a rare chest.
There is also a hotfix that permanently increases the spawn and drop rates of Rare Spawns, Hammerlock Hunts, and Targets of Opportunity. This buffs the Legendary drop rates and Anointed chances to be on par with bosses. On top of that, the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite scaling event (which automatically scales the mission’s difficulty level to match the size of the player party) will continue indefinitely instead of ending today as previously planned.
Moving forward, the difficulty of Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite and all future Takedowns will scale by default, though the upcoming February update will add a new machine that allows you to re-enable “True Takedown Mode.”
True Takedown Mode restores the Takedown to the original difficulty level (which was designed with four-player co-op in mind) for an extra challenge. Once implemented, this new machine will be located on the right side of the door leading out of the airlock at the beginning of the map.
Borderlands 3 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia.
