Borderlands 3 to Finally Allow Players Their Own Personal Loot in Co-Op
Borderlands 3 is finally going to fix its biggest quality of life issue for co-op players.
Borderlands 3 is finally fixing arguably the biggest complaint that fans of the series have always critiqued its co-op mode of: shared loot. If you don’t already know, when playing with other players, whether they be friends or randoms, all the loot is dropped is picked up on a first come basis. Whoever gets the loot first is the only one who has it. Well, no more.
Matt Cox, the Lead Boss Designer for Borderlands 3, went to Twitter today to say shared loot will only be an option. You can change it so that all items and weapons that you see dropped is your own personal loot according to the PlayStation Blog. Included in this blog post are story elements, changes, and additions made to the different weapon brands that the series is known for.
No more fighting for loot in Borderlands 3. We can now choose to have our own personal loot stream if we want. One of my favorite things we announced today. Can still play the classic way, too.
