The latest patch for Borderlands 3 has arrived, and it makes weapon balance adjustments and addresses some issues that players might have experienced. This update is out today, April 29, though you might not receive the patch on your platform until 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET.

Class Mods for the Beastmaster and the Gunner should now drop more frequently for people playing the Guns, Love, and Tentacles DLC. As for the weapon changes, Borderlands 3 developer Gearbox said it’s making adjustments so players have a better sense of feeling their power increase.

This includes buffs to Crader’s EM-P5 and Tankman’s shield, along with gear such as Moonfire, Kyb’s Worth, and the Redistributor. Other gear, including Reflux, DNZ, the Web Slinger, and Smog, has been buffed as well through the April 29 patch.

You can find the full patch notes below, as posted by Gearbox on its website.

In other news, the Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut released on April 8 following a delay related to the terrible storms in the studio’s home state of Texas. A Borderlands movie is also currently in development with a huge cast of big names.
