The results of our recent Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel legendary drop rate experiments are in! A special thanks goes out to everyone who played and shared feedback over the last few weeks.

After analyzing thousands of hours of your gameplay and feedback survey data, we’ve decided to add a permanent 3x drop rate increase to both games!

Yes, you read that right – starting May 26, hot fixes* that increase legendary drop rates will be rolling out for Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection across all platforms! We’ll be looking to permanently incorporate these hot fixes via future updates down the road.

For the curious, here’s a little background on how the experiments went down. Every week between April 9 and May 13 had a different legendary drop rate modifier applied via hot fix, but we held back on the exact details. We did this because we wanted to find out what drop rate felt right and didn’t want player opinions being influenced by the numbers.

For those five weeks, community members tested out the drop rates and let us know what they thought via the forums and feedback surveys. After digging through all the data, we discovered that standard drop rates were perceived as too rare but that anything over a 3x boost felt like too much – almost to the point where it was starting to take away the challenge and excitement from seeing that beautiful orange glow.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in our experiments and happy hunting!

*A hot fix is automatically applied at the "Press Start" screen when Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is connected to the internet. To ensure that you receive hot fixes, make sure that your system is connected to the internet when the game boots up.

Updated 5/14/15: 

The last legendary drop rate hot fix has been removed -- thanks to everyone who has participated and shared feedback over the past five weeks! We hope you enjoyed the extra loot.

As for next steps, our research team will begin to analyze all of the data that we received and work on a plan for next steps. We'll follow up once the analysis has concluded!

----------------

If it seems like the loot gods have smiled upon you recently, Vault Hunter, it's because they have! Well, sort of. The team has been doing some tinkering with legendary drop rates recently, and will continue to do so through May 13!

Over the next few weeks (based on the schedule below) we'll be testing out a different percentage increase to the drop rate of legendaries across the board in Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita (BL2 Only), Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

We can't say exactly how much the drop rate has increased week to week, but can assure you that the adjustments will never sink below the default rate!

Adjustments will be made through hot fixes that will be set live on Thursdays on the following schedule:

  • Week One: April 9 through April 15
  • Week Two: April 16 through April 22
  • Week Three: April 23 through April 29
  • Week Four: April 30 through May 6
  • Week Five: May 7 through May 13

We're looking for your feedback each week, so please share thoughts and experience with us through the weekly surveys below. These surveys will be open on Monday through Wednesday each week.

  • Week One Survey Closed
  • Week Two Survey Closed
  • Week Three Survey Closed
  • Week Four Survey Closed
  • Week Five Survey Closed
