Borderlands 3’s December 2020 Hotfix Activates Co-Op Loot Drop; Buffs Some Low-Tier Weapons

Another month, another hotfix for Gearbox’s OG loot-and-shoot series.

Borderlands 3 just received a 17th December 2020 hotfix which activates the Co-op Loot Drop mini-event. This event will cause all Badass enemies to drop more loot while players are playing co-op in online multiplayer and local split-screen. Which is nice, because there’s already a bonus when playing co-op; this just encourages lots of group play. The event will end on 22nd January 1am GMT+8.

Apart from some bug fixes like patching up a hole in Vaulthalla and the Singularity grenade causing the Arms Race boss to fall through the map, the hotfix also buffs a number of mediocre and low-tier guns. These include the Lucky 7, AutoAimè, and the Creamer, finally getting some love after all these months of neglect.
