Borderlands 3 system requirements

Check the Borderlands 3 system requirements to see if your gaming PC can run it. Fortunately, the looter shooter FPS doesn't demand much of your rig


Borderlands 3 system requirements shouldn’t make your gaming PC sweat, given the recommended graphics card is still the most popular GPU on Steam. The rest of the Borderlands 3 specs are just as tame, too.


On the minimum side – which is here listed as ‘1080p gaming’ – Gearbox makes the modest recommendation of an AMD FX-8350 or Intel i5 3570 paired with a Radeon HD 7970 or GeForce GTX 680. Even the recommended specs for 1440p are fairly light, with a Ryzen 5 2600 or i7 4770 matched up alongside an RX 590 or GTX 1060.

The developers have also shared the graphics settings you’re able to play with. These include FOV options from 70 to 110, unlimited frame rates or custom FPS limits. UI scaling, resolution scaling, and all the tweakable bells and whistles you’d expect.

Borderlands 3 was originally an Epic Games Store timed exclusive, but has since come to other platforms, like Steam.
