Borderlands 3 Hotfixes: May 27, 2021

BY 2K Chad



Today’s changes to Borderlands 3 activate the True Trials event for the Trial of Discipline. During this event, the Trial of Discipline 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!

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 third Borderlands 3 add-on. As a reminder, players are unable to equip DLC gear if they do not own the DLC it comes from.

These changes 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 Discipline event, which will be active until June 3 at 8:59 AM PT

As a reward, the boss will be dropping two Legendary weapons. Each drop has a chance of being either Kaoson or Flipper from the Bounty of Blood add-on (Note: Players who do not own the Bounty of Blood add-on will not be able to equip Flipper until they own the respective add-on).

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

With this hotfix, the Trial of Cunning will be returning to its regular state.
