Borderlands 3 Hotfixes: August 19, 2021

BY Alex



Hey Vault Hunters!


Today’s changes to Borderlands 3 activate the Loot the Universe event on Promethea as part of the Borderlands 3 Second Anniversary Celebration, ensure Lunacy drops as expected, and temporarily removes the Reaper Guardians from Takedown at the Guardian Breach. Each week during Loot the Universe, Borderlands 3's planets will take turns of having even better drops, with specific types of Legendary loot having an increased chance of dropping in one of that planet's zones.

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.

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

  • Activated the Loot the Universe mini-event on Promethea until 8:59 AM PT on August 26
  • Addressed a concern that Lunacy was not sometimes dropping from Empowered Grawn
  • Temporarily removed Reaper Guardians from spawning during the final leg of Takedown at the Guardian Breach. They will be re-enabled in a future update.
