Can I transfer my PS3 characters to the PC version

I’ve just bought the PC version of BL2 to see if it will actually run on my PC and was wondering if there’s any way I can transfer my PS3 characters over to the PC version. If not I’m all good with that, just means playing through the game a load more times…something I really don’t mind doing. But if I can transfer my characters it’d save a lot of time.

Thanks for any help.

You can only transfer from Xbox 360 to Xbox One or PS3 to PS4. You cannot transfer from PS3 to PC.

I thought that may be the case, it’s probably a good thing tbh, I’m not used to playing games on the PC and getting used to the controls is going to take me a while, lol. Already been taken out by knuckle dragger twice because I kept losing the movement keys, lol

I am liking how quick loading is compared to the PS3 though.

IIRC, you should be able to use one of those Xbox 360 / Xbox One controllers specifically designed for us with a PC, to play Borderlands if you don’t want to have to get used to a Keyboard + Mouse.

Just search (borderlands 2 ps3 to pc) in google and there are many diccussions that will pop up even a youtube tutorial on how to.

Unfortunately this violates the consoles ToS as third party software is not allowed to be used on them, even if it’s just to move it to another platform.

So let’s not discuss this here, thanks.

@chachava - Welcome to PC gaming :grinning: OT but if you are having trouble with “WASD” here’s something that might help. In the early days of PC FPSs, WASD wasn’t a standard. Some games put “Forward” on the right mouse button. I’ve stuck with this over the years (I’ve been gaming a loooong time!) and I know others who use it, as well. It might help if you find yourself tripping over that tight grouping of keys. Give it a go, you can always revert back.

In any case, I hope you get used to the mouse. It is a great way to play shooters. Have fun :smile:

Thanks for the reply, I’ll give it a go. Am I right in thinking you then bind the Aim/Secondary fire for Sal to the up key? or do you bind that elsewhere?

I’m slowly getting the hang of the controls, and aiming is definitely a lot easier and accurate with a mouse.

Put it wherever you find it comfortable. Unlike a controller, you have loads of keys to play with :grinning: I put Secondary/Aim/Zoom on the Space bar and hit it with my thumb. That way, I can be zoomed in leaving my fingers free for movement keys.

Over the years, I’ve moved away from WASD completely, so my standard loadout is a bit bizarre:

number keys - weapon slots (for Borderlands games, I bind grenade to “5”)
qwert - sprint, crouch, forward, back, jump (I bind “forward” to a key, as well, if the game options allow)
asdfg - reload, skill, left, right, use
space - secondary/zoom
mouse l/m/r - primary, melee, forward

I find this keeps my fingers side-by-side rather than scrunched up around WASD. Mouse + asdfg cover 80%+ of gameplay.

I use this basic set-up for every shooter with minor variations. But this is completely personal. It depends on the size of your hands, keyboard layout and the way your brain works :grin: Experiment. You can always hit “reset” and start again. Good luck.
