Borderlands 3 was one of the best games to play in 2020. Because of the global shutdown, there was no better time to play a silly online multiplayer loot-n-shoot with your friends. Today Gearbox released the latest patch notes for the Borderlands 3 March 11 hotfix. Here’s everything you need to know about what’s new.

March 11 Hotfix

The Borderlands 3 March 11 hotfix patch notes are as follows:

  • Loot variant enemies will now have a chance to drop the Legendary Rocket Launcher R.Y.N.A.H
  • Added the Firestorm Grenade Mod to Aurelia’s boss pool

The Siren’s Remnant skill was doing more damage than we ever intended for it. The skill is only supposed to affect gun and skill damage, but we (and the community—looking at you “Game Breaker Amara” build) found it was also adding unlisted bonuses to melee, slide, and slam damage. We have addressed this exploit and made changes to some of the gear that benefitted from this bug.

  • Removed unlisted melee, slide, and slam damage from the Siren’s Remnant skill
  • Adjusted the melee damage done by the Fish Slap grenade mod
  • Lowered the sticky grenade bonus damage for the White Elephant artifact


We increased the damage of various pieces of gear to bring them more in line. These weapons are all receiving increased damage:

  • Webslinger
  • Devoted
  • Roisen’s Thorns
  • Magnificent
  • Mother Too
  • Smart Gun XXL
  • Ten Gallon

Borderlands 3 Directors Cut Update

Included in the hotfix patch notes was an update on the Borderlands 3 Directors Cut. It’s been delayed due to weather issues from last month in Texas. Here’s the full statement:

Due to challenges arising from the severe weather that impacted Texas last month, the Director’s Cut add-on will now launch on April 8. Thankfully, all of our team members and their families are safe and healthy, but our work on Director’s Cut was unavoidably disrupted and we’ve ultimately decided to shift the release date to ensure we deliver the best possible experience. We appreciate your understanding, and we’re excited for you to play Director’s Cut when it releases next month.
