Takedown Difficulty Adjustments

For a limited time, players will be able to experience the Takedown in scaled difficulty! The difficulty of the raid will be adjusted depending on the number of players in your party. This is a useful update for players who want to experience the Takedown but were not able to due the raid's difficulty!

List of Changes to Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite

  • Improved Matchmaking
  • Decreased Shield and Armor on Maliwan Deathsphere

Improved Matchmaking

Improvements to the Takedown's matchmaking have been improved. The game will not transition the player into the Takedown until a party of four is formed. This was done since the devs believe that players would prefer to do the raid with a full party, and would not mind the extra wait time.

Change Will Be Monitored

The change to the matchmaking will be monitored by the devs. Based on what they observe, changes will be made to the matchmaking service as necessary.

Maliwan Deathsphere Adjustments

Deathspheres are now harder to track and shoot down thanks to their improved navigation. In order to balance this, their shields and armor were decreased to make them easier to shoot down for players.

Other Bug Fixes and Changes

List of Miscellaneous Changes

These miscellaneous changes addressed minor issues of the game, such as damage values of a Vault Hunter's skill not being correct, loot not correctly dropping on certain bosses, and enemies not spawning immediately in certain sections of missions.

What Are Hotfixes?

Temporary Fixes to Certain Issues

Hot fixes are temporary updates stored in the game's memory during a session. Make sure that the hot fix is working by going into the in-game menu. There should be a pop-up saying "Updates are available". Choose Quit to Main Title to apply the hot fix.
