Borderlands 3 Technical State On PC And Consoles Looking Rough, as a result of an assortment of problems which are not really all that unfamiliar to series fans.

On consoles, however, things appear to be at a worse state. Borderlands 3's enormous feature now around on PS4 Guru and Xbox One X is offering players the choice of resolution and performance styles. The former lacks that the framerate goal to 30fps, upping the visual clarity, whereas the latter drops the leave resolution in favour of a 60fps target.

Unfortunately, as new investigation from Digital Foundry shows, it may be better to adhere to the 30fps resolution mode.

Based on this report, both PS4 Guru and Xbox One X run at 3200×1800 in resolution mode, and 1080p in performance mode. Even though the visual presentation is mostly similar between these, the report found some anomalies, such as the reduced anisotropic filtering Xbox One X.
Performance mode, nevertheless, appears to be a small disaster on the two consoles. On Xbox One X, the framerate drops into the 50s in combat, only ever sticking to the target 60fps in less feverish moments. More interestingly, the frame-time pacing is off, together with stutters and other inconsistencies.

PS4 Pro suffers from exactly the same problems, even though it appears to have more severe drops in framerate as a result of its weaker CPU compared to Xbox One X. This lack of consistency is what finally drove Digital Foundry to recommend players stick to resolution mode.
To this end, Xbox One X holds a near-locked 30fps in resolution style in 1800p. PS4 Guru, on the other hand, suffers drops at the 20s occasionally. It is a disappointing state of affairs, particularly coming off the excellent Gears 5, yet another Unreal Engine 4 match with much better results on both the foundation and enhanced consoles, albeit clearly just on Xbox. Specifically, players are reporting a stutter from the PlayStation 4 Guru's performance style, which is assumed to provide you a more 60fps experience. However, this stutter seems widespread across platforms and modes.

There's a lot of lag, too, especially when playing split-screen couch co-op and a single player goes in their ECHOdevice during heavy battle.

Our Lottie Lynn, who's playing on PlayStation 4, struck a strange glitch where one menu screen displayed placeholder text that seemed to refresh itself.

In light of Borderlands 3 PC launch as an exclusive on the Epic Games store, which does not own a forum, players are turning to different areas to request help - and - troll.
Gearbox's very own forum includes a section for Borderlands 3, which will be packed with troubleshooting threads started by gamers asking for help. Nonetheless, it's that the Borderlands 2 Steam page at which most discussion has been had - and not all of it is useful or wanted, it sounds.

It's no surprise, of course, to see players of an Epic Games store timed exclusive flock to the Steam page of its predecessor to request aid and indeed troll others. It has happened before with previous Epic Games store exclusives and will undoubtedly happen again. However, given Borderlands 3's rugged launching, the matter is exacerbated - and given Steam's enormous online footprint, people who use Google to troubleshoot Borderlands 3 problems will likely be delivered Steam's way. One user called for a Borderlands 3 Steam subforum"therefore that the pooor [sic] ppl who can not be bothered to utilize the Gearbox forum can rant and gloat and encourage each other in there without completely outspamming on-topic BL2 content".
