Borderlands 3 new holiday DLC was released and with it also comes hotfix patch. The patch will come automatically if you’re in the main menu, but you may need to quit out and wait until the sign appears to make it happen if you’re in-game at the time. The hotfix addresses many of the bugs which were reported by players like decreases the shields and armor on Maliwan Deathspheres in the Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite event.
The company Gearbox said that the most recent patch will improve the navigation of the Deathspheres, but that made them harder to hit, so the lowered shields and armor compensate for the change. Furthermore, there are also changes to matchmaking in Takedown. The blog post reads “The Takedown matchmaking service now won’t transition players into the Takedown until a full party of four players have been found.”
“We believe players would prefer matchmaking take a little longer in order to enter the Takedown with a full party. We’ll be monitoring this change and will adjust as necessary.” Most of the changes that came with this hotfix came to the Takedown, and soon you will be able to jump in regardless of party size. From 31 December through 16 January, you will be able to play with any number of players, and matchmaking will be updated to get into parties quickly instead of necessarily waiting for a full party.
