Tiny Tina's Wonderlands

What are Chaotic/Volatile Items and How to Get

Jarrod Garripoli

Farming weapons and items in the Borderlands series is something many players have done, and it is no exception in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. However, your weapons are going to stay the same (independent of level, of course), so you may be outclassed a little bit, once you start delving into the endgame of Wonderlands. That is where the game introduces Chaotic and Volatile variants of almost every item in the game.

What are Chaotic/Volatile Items

As you make your way through the endgame and begin finding powerful items and Legendaries, you will undoubtedly notice that other than levels, all of the items don’t really get more powerful. That is because, whether you’re playing on Chaos Level 1 or Chaos Level 20, if you find a Legendary at level 40, it will be the same thing (if you have the same two items). That is where the Chaotic and Volatile versions of items come into play, as they are slightly stronger than the normal versions. Note that you can get Chaotic and Volatile versions of any gear in the game, not just Legendaries (although, that’s probably what you want).

You will see the Chaotic or Volatile moniker whenever you find one of these items

  • Chaotic items are around 19% stronger than normal
  • Volatile items are around 41% stronger than normal

Where to Find Chaotic/Volatile Items

With that out of the way, you’re probably wondering where to get the Chaotic and Volatile versions of the gear. Well, you won’t be seeing them during the main story, as they only drop whenever you have Chaos Mode active. That means you will need to have unlocked the Chaos Chamber and done the Chaos Trial to unlock Chaos Mode. At Chaos Level 1, you have a 3.85% chance of obtaining a piece of Chaotic Gear, with it becoming 28.17% at Chaos Level 20. For Volatile gear, you won’t be able to find any until you’ve reached the max Chaos Level above (20), with it being 1.41% chance to drop then.
