With Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite
seeing Vault Hunters take on what is being described as "a serious challenge" in a new Raid-style mission that disables respawns as players destroy a top-secret Maliwan weapon. Also arriving in this free Borderlands 3
update is Mayhem 4, a new highest level in Mayhem Mode that adds new Legendaries and ups the difficulty and drop rates.
It also adjusts the modifier system to give one positive buff to both players and enemies only. Plus, the aforementioned and long overdue stash size increase. And more.
Bank Expansion: All characters now begin the game with 20 bank slots instead of 10. By acquiring additional Storage Deck Upgrades from Marcus’s shop on Sanctuary III, players can expand the storage bank to 300 total slots;
Dedicated Loot Pools for Bosses: All bosses have been updated with new loot pools that give them dedicated Legendary items to drop. Players can now discover which bosses drop their favorite gear and more easily farm for those specific items;
Additional Vending Machines: New vending machines have been placed across multiple maps;
Target Dummy: A target dummy now appears in Sanctuary III’s firing range, allowing players to safely test their weapons;
Thank You Weapons: Two free “thank you” weapons – one for lower-level players and one for Level 50 players – are available through the in-game mail system.
