Anthem Loot Update

BioWare's made a quick tweak to ANTHEM's endgame loot system, making powerful masterwork and legendary items drop more frequently on Grandmaster 2 and Grandmaster 3 difficulty levels. Drop rates have also been increased when defeating harder enemies. "This includes: Legendary Titan, Epic Titan, Legendary Fury, Legendary Acid Ursix and Legendary Luminary Elder," read the update notes. This is a server-side alteration, so you won't need to download anything, and the changes are in effect right now.

The changes arrive following a community backlash. Earlier this week, the developer was criticised for "fixing" a "bug" that, funnily enough, also allowed for increased loot drops. With that in mind, this update seems like a direct response to player feedback.

However, despite this positive step forward, ANTHEM's still struggling in the eyes of many a hardcore player. The game's latest patch essentially broke its progression system, which is about as bad as it sounds.

The hope is that BioWare can slowly but surely get ANTHEM back on track, but with The Division 2 out today, this could be the start of an incredibly difficult battle.
