Player Initialization Failed [PC]

been trying every method, both steam and battleborn are ran in admin mode and ive been retrying all day, pls hep

This looks like it’s a problem with your network connection. If you are sure that your internet is fine, and you can connect to everything else (also check if Steam itself is down), then try the following:

  • Open Steam
  • Right-click Battleborn in your Steam Library, and click Properties
  • Click the Local Files tab up the top
  • Click “Verify integrity of game files”.

You’ll need to have internet access to do both this and to run the game in general - there isn’t an offline mode, unfortunately. Let me know if this helps.

Local files have been verified, still giving the same error

Okay. Can you confirm that other Steam games / downloads are functioning fine - as in you can play online?

Yes, ive been playing EYE Divine Cybermancy and Alien Swarm RD all day while retrying the login

Alrighty. Check if Battleborn is allowed to connect to the Internet through your firewall.

it is

Well, aside from turning it off and then on again, I’m stumped. Put in a ticket with Gearbox support here, they should be able to help you out.
