Borderlands 3 may have featured a longer campaign than its predecessors but just a couple of weeks after release, players are hungry for more content. Many are done with the main story and are now spending time farming the endgame bosses over and over again in a bid to deck out with legendary gear.
As if to confirm the notion, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford took to Twitter earlier today to ask how the community was faring. It was a minor poll but 35 percent of users voted that they were “all over the endgame” in Borderlands 3. That’s actually not a good sign for the developer.

Borderlands 3 does have endgame content that gets unlocked after finishing the main campaign. There’s Circle of Slaughter where you go up against waves of enemies. There’s True Vault Hunter that serves as a new game plus mode. Mayhem is something new that adds additional effects to combat and increases loot quality. Proving Grounds are also there for co-op-focused missions but can be taken solo. However, what players really want right now are raid bosses.
Chances are that you have already discovered the massive door located in the north-east sector of Ascension Bluff. It has been confirmed to be the entrance to a raid that remains to be opened by Gearbox Software. The empty arena in the back supposedly houses a a supersized varkid, a kind of advanced metamorphosis that was Vermivorous, the Invincible, from Borderlands 2. In other words, one of the anticipated Borderlands 3 bosses that players want right now.
Gearbox Software hasn’t mentioned when the first raid is going to be opened. The developer, though, is expected to unleash the hidden boss by next month. There wouldn’t be any point to keep players idle any longer than necessary since it’s pretty evident that many are bored to death while farming the Borderlands 3 bosses available right now.
In the post-release content roadmap, Borderlands 3 is set to receive two free pieces of DLC in the coming months: Bloody Harvest and Maliwan Takedown. The former will be halloween-themed and add new side quests. The latter will add a brand new map, enemies, bosses, and obviously, rewards. Hence, at the very least, you’ll have to wait until a month from now to get some new content.
Borderlands 3 is scheduled to receive a patch later today that will address a number of general and performance issues. Many of these were the ones to which players found fixes to themselves. The patch will hopefully fix them all.
Borderlands 3 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
