Borderlands Legendary Collection FAQ

BY 2K Rykkie



Hey there, Vault Hunter!

We know you've probably got a bunch of questions about the Borderlands Legendary Collection launching on Nintendo Switch. As a result, we've compiled a list of common questions and put together some answers below. 

Why is there a digital code in my Physical product?

  • The Handsome Collection is a digital game only on the Nintendo Switch.

Do I need to download all 3 games at the same time in order to play?

  • If you have the physical package, Borderlands Game of the Year will be on the cartridge. Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be delivered digitally. If you have bought The Legendary Collection Digitally, all 3 titles can be downloaded individually. You do not need to have all three games downloaded to play. 

There is a Day 1 Patch to my game. Do I need to have this to play online?

  • Yes. In order to play Borderlands Game of the Year, Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel online you will need to have the latest patch.

My game has crashed. What happened?

  • There is a small chance that if both the host and other guests playing the game quit at the same time while a save is happening the game will crash for all players.

I am lost when trying to play the mission "More History of Simulated Violence" in an Overpowered game.

  • This is a known issue where the waypoint doesn't show. It can be fixed by exiting and entering the game again, the waypoint appears when the user accepts the target from Tannis.
