Borderlands games have been all about the Gazillion guns, what if those items are the key to your next big farm?

The recipe could affect the type of enemies and mini-bosses you encounter during the challenge. The level of the item will determine the intensity of the changes. So the higher the level of the weapon, the bigger the impact of the recipe changes are applied.

For example, the end game challenge is similar to a Borderlands 3 Proving Ground. One recipe could spawn additional Spiderants throughout the map. This creates a new challenge as these would normally not spawn next to that other type of enemy.
These maps can have a small arena that allows for mini-bosses to spawn. These bosses are based on the recipe you paid at the start.
Having exclusive gear in these challenges that boost the impact of the recipes could add another layer to this idea. These could be weapons with a higher Mayhem Level or rarity tier (Pearlescent) but they could also have unique weapon parts that boost the weapons performance or maybe a second anoint.
This gives controlled randomness to the end game and adds value to farm specific loot. While a particular weapon may be a meme due to its performance, it might be in high demand as it enables you to fight a specific boss and claim its unique drop.
I like this idea but I also know some folks just want to directly jump into a (raid) boss fight and farm it over and over again. So I’m curious what you think about this idea, here is a quick TLDR:
