As we continue to develop new content, we’re always keeping an eye on balancing to ensure that Borderlands 3 continues to be enjoyed for years to come, much like previous Borderlands titles. We prefer to make buffs rather than nerfs. However, in the most extreme cases, we may step in to reduce the power level of weapons, gear, or skills that make competing options feel totally obsolete.
All changes are made to keep Borderlands 3 feeling fresh for newcomers and veterans alike. We strive to make your chosen Vault Hunter feel unique, powerful, and impactful across all levels, and we want to maintain the thrill of collecting gear for whatever new build you can come up with next.
Gearbox has also confirmed that the UI will get improved, the game will also receive an update to allow players to skip cutscenes.Gearbox and 2K also confirmed that future level cap increases are to arrive later.
