Today's batch of hotfixes en-route to Borderlands 3 will bring some changes to the game, including boosted weapon damage to a bevvy of firearms and grenades.

Borderlands 3's gear and the drop rate for Bloody Harvest Anointments will be reworked a bit after the game's latest patch hits the live servers. The update should be up and running on all platforms by 7:00 p.m. GMT.

To apply the hotfixes, do the usual standing routine at the Main Menu until you see a sign that reads "Hotfixes Applied!". Head on over here to submit a ticket for any issues and feedback you happen to have.

Bloody Harvest will be around until November 5, but you can also turn off the haunted enemies feature along with the Bloddy Harvest event in the Main Menu.
