2K have released a patch for Borderlands 3 on Nintendo Switch, which is available now, bringing with it a huge swathe of quality of life changes, fixing geometry, audio, frame rates and more!

Being proud of the work they’ve done patching up the title, 2K have provided a comprehensive list of the changes to the game:

  • The missions "Blood Drive," "Survive Ambush," and "Lair of the Harpy" have been updated to prevent some instances of a progression blocker due to a crash.

  • Stability updates addressing various reported crashes throughout the game in certain areas, including some instances of starting a new game, while matchmaking, and more.

  • Vault Hunter alternative skins now apply colors correctly.

  • Bloody Harvest Vault Hunter Heads have been added to Crazy Earl's Shop.
