Borderlands 3 ‘Farming Frenzy’ Event Detailed

2K Games has announced that the Farming Frenzy “mini-event” in Borderlands 3 will go live on January 16th and run until January 30th. During this window, the game’s Legendary drops will be easier to come by. Additionally, the game’s raid-like activity, Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite, will be rebalanced so that it is easier for small parties and solo players. Details from the limited event’s press release can be found below.

Hoping to snag a specific Legendary drop? Still looking to cross some of those rare and exotic enemies off your list? Well good news, Vault Hunter: for the next two weeks, the Borderlands 3 farming frenzy is on!

Not only will rare enemies be guaranteed to appear, their specific Legendary gear will drop at a higher than normal rate when you defeat them. Additionally, Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite will be more manageable for small squads and solo players, meaning its bosses (and their Legendary loot) will be yours for the taking. Here are the specifics of this limited-time mini-event:

  • Rare spawns are guaranteed to appear;
  • All enemies with dedicated loot pools (e.g. rare spawns, named bosses, etc.) have a higher chance of dropping Legendary gear from their dedicated loot pool;
  • Additionally, the Anointment rate for that gear has been increased;
  • Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite’s difficulty will now scale to match the size of the player party rather than defaulting to four-player difficulty (available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One only).

Again, these changes go live tomorrow, January 16th, and will be reversed on Thursday, January 30th. That means you have two weeks of prime loot hunting to kick off the new year, so get out there and level up your arsenal!
