Borderlands 3 Hotfixes: May 20, 2021

BY Alex



Hey Vault Hunters!

Today’s changes to Borderlands 3 activate the True Trials event for the Trial of Cunning. This will be live on all platforms by 12:00 PM PT. To apply hotfixes, wait at the main menu until you see a sign that reads, “Hotfixes Applied!” If you are experiencing any issues or want to provide feedback, please submit a ticket to

  • Activating the True Trial of Cunning event, which will be active until May 27 at 8:59 AM PT
  • The Trial of Survival will be returning to its regular state.

During this event, the Trial of Cunning boss has received a huge boost to its health and the damage it will be dishing out to players. This mini-event cannot be turned off, so new players beware! As a reward, the boss will be dropping two Legendary weapons. Each drop has a chance of being either Sickle or Skullmasher from Gun, Love, and Tentacles add-on (Note: Players who do not own the Guns, Love, and Tentacles add-on will not be able to equip Skullmasher unless they own the respective add-on).

Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine will be moving to a new location on Thursdays at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET and is activated with a hotfix.

This week’s gear has a special appearance of a piece of gear from the second Borderlands 3 add-on. As a reminder, players are unable to equip DLC gear if they do not own the DLC it comes from.

In addition, the chest at the end of the Trial of Cunning will be full of Legendaries regardless of how quickly you completed it or how many objectives you scored!
