A new update for Borderlands 3 is scheduled to arrive today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC. Aside from adding support for the new campaign DLC Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck, the update also addresses general, character, and mayhem fixes.
As part of the new campaign add-on, the Borderlands 3 level cap has been raised by five levels to 65. In terms of general fixes, the update adds two more ammo SDU upgrades for pistols, shotguns, submachine guns, assault rifles, and grenades, plus two expansion SDU upgrades for the Lost Loot machine on Sanctuary III. It also addresses an issue where the “Refill Ammo” prompt would persist in multiplayer sessions, and made sure player class icons will now show profile pictures for Steam and Epic Games Store players using cross-platform on PC.
When it comes to Mayhem, players will now have a chance to redeem themselves in Fight For Your Life when Slayer is active and they’ve killed an enemy with a melee attack. Damage scaling support has also been added to shields with Nova or Reflect behaviors.
The update makes a number of character changes, too, particularly FL4K The Beastmaster. For instance, FL4K’s Headcount passive skill no longer prevents Rakk Attack from gaining the proper number of charges when scoring critical hits. The Beastmaster’s Friend-Bot class mod now increases pet damage as well, and the Dominance skill will continue to damage beast targets throughout its duration.
Certain types of damage were unintentionally being passed to other enemies caught in the Phasegrasp. This change prevents those interactions, but no other changes have been made to this skill.
