How is performance today on PC compared to a couple weeks after launch?

Game wasn't terrible but it was definitely chunky at times with FPS all over the place. Things improved a good bit since?

Depends what's on screen really. With my 9900k and a GTX 1080, I get a solid 60fps at 1080p. However last week in the slaughterhouse I was using chain Zane and destroyed about 10 enemies at once. My fps tanked! Very rare though.

I'm sort of obsessed with this game at the moment. Which is surprising, because neither Borderlands 1 or 2 ever clicked with me. But I'm having a blast with 3 so far. I did not, however, enjoy the 5-phase Warden boss fight and I hear that it isn't even the worst boss battle in the game.

Anyone else's Xbox powering off when trying to load into a game? Had no issues just a couple of hours ago.
My Xbox shuts off a few times a week from Borderlands. It happens the most when i try to join someone in Sanctuary, no idea why. Other people can join me in Sanctuary just fine but when i try to join them, it will load for a few seconds but then entire console will shut off.

Yeah, apparently that's the issue XB1 owners are having, specifically XB1X. Gearbox has claimed that it's a hardware issue but were looking at the issue as of late-January.

Not sure if it was mentioned before, but they will reveal the 2nd DLC campaign this Thursday. Can't wait to see what it is! I want to see more of Brick, Tina and Mordecai, hope they'll be in one of them.

Just started the Casino DLC. I love this area!

Is there any good exclusive gear to farm here?
There's a lot of loot that only drop in there, including class mods.

What class? For Zane, pretty much the most OP mod drops from dlc.

As far as weapons, my favorite gun from the dlc is the Craps pistol. Again, for Zane, the 100% bonus cryo anointment plus sticky mode on the pistol just melts enemies. Higher chance of dropping from final dlc boss i believe. Pretty much ditched maggie once i got this pistol.

ION Cannon is another sought after dlc weapon, i think it's like the 3rd to last dlc boss you fight that has a higher chance of dropping that one. Insanely powerful.

I think the Ion Cannon is a guaranteed drop (unless they changed it). I've farmed that boss though for a x2 variant though

Never got the appeal of rocket launchers. Their low ammo count and slow reload make them very uninteresting to me. If they were nuclear monster machines that could one/two shots most regular enemies, perhaps I could try them more often.

I have a corrosive launcher with huge clip capacity that I'm loving in the casino. Allows me to take out piles and piles of robots with little to no downtime.

Today we will release a hotfix for Borderlands 3, which will be live on all platforms by 12:00 PM PST. This hotfix addresses concerns reported by the community. To apply hotfixes, wait at the main menu until you see a sign that says “Hotfixes Applied”! If you are experiencing any issues or want to provide feedback, please submit a ticket to support.2k.com.

  • Addressed a reported concern that players were sometimes able to bypass Trudy’s spawn trigger during “Kill KillaVolt”
  • Addressed a perceived progression blocker during “All Bets Off” where enemies that were dropped in from a drop pod would sometimes not appear when the player left and returned to the area
  • Included a stopgap fix to prevent a reported blocker due to enemies sometimes becoming stuck in unreachable locations in Cistern of Slaughter
This will be addressed further in a future patch, along with a change to Brood Mother’s spawn conditions.

  • Addressed a reported concern that the “Should’ve Cashed Out” challenge was sometimes not progressing when killing Looters in the DLC area
  • Adjusted Billy the Anointed’s behaviors so that they would not teleport as often during a fight, and increased the chance for them to drop Lead Sprinkler
  • Addressed a reported concern that players could sometimes get stuck on top of a row of slot machines inside the second VIP room at Beggar’s Berth
