Dedicated loot drops will soon be making their way into Borderlands 3, according to the latest word from the developers, Gearbox. They said that they will allow players to farm their desired drops more efficiently in the future, though there's been no word yet on how that will work.
Up until now, the majority of Legendary items in Borderlands 3 could only be farmed completely at random, with them being able to drop from virtually any loot source whatsoever. This is great, but it also means that the game has a significant loot pool to choose from whenever it generates a Legendary drop.
In practice, if you wanted to try your hand at getting a Monocle, or The Flood, you could only ramp up whatever endgame drop rate booster you could find, and then hope for the best. Naturally, this led to players discovering a wide variety of borderline exploits, and then making good use of them for farming purposes.
Gearbox hasn't offered any further information on how they will implement dedicated loot drops, but we're guessing it's still going to include hunting for Red Chests across the game's planets. They did promise for the feature to be making its way into Borderlands 3 with a future update, but only in vague terms. It could be coming next week, or in a few months - we just don't know yet.
