So I figured I might as well compile some of the fixes I’ve found for the crashing issues I see often. Now, I see a lot of people recommending elaborate solutions like “reinstall your drivers” or “reinstall windows.” As some of us know, that ■■■■ don’t work. Neither does rolling back your graphics driver (probably I don’t know, who cares.) Also DX12 is busted to ■■■■, if it works for you, good, but it likely won’t. But may if you do this https://www.dsogaming.com/news/here-is-how-you-can-completely-fix-the-annoying-dx12-stutters-even-with-ray-tracing-in-control/. Obviously substitute references to Control with Borderlands 3.
So! Here are some fixes. If absolutely none work, go for reinstalling your drivers or windows if you’re that desperate I suppose. (Also seriously, update your drivers first, Driver Booster is free and easy.)
Also make sure you’re running the Epic Games Launcher in administrator mode, sidesteps a lot of issues. Namely that LS-0013 or whatever one.
Also also, Windows has been breaking things left and right with their wonderful “fixes.” It’s frustrating, and saddening but there’s nothing we can really do about that unfortunately.

or “pak decompression failed.”
I went to E:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\DirectXRedist in the epic games folder (check whatever drive you have it on.) Unpacked all of those zipped files into that folder and now I’m able to play
Verifying game cache also seems to do the trick. I’ve needed to verify after each computer restart, likely you will too.
I also capped my fps to 120 (using a 144 hz monitor) and turned on vsync but I’m sure those are unrelated but figured I should mention just in case.
Either GeForce Experience of Razer Synapse causes 100% gpu memory usage (memory leak.) Close em. I don’t care to figure out which one someone else can.
Harmless, and may solve issues. I have no sure idea, I tried multiple solutions at once then ran the game. I’m a programmer, not a QA tester, and I’m definitely not getting paid for this.
Turning off cloud saves seems to work for some people, and also will protect you from corrupted saves too so might as well just flip that switch.
Go into NVIDIA control panel, go to manage 3d settings, find “Power Management Mode”, change it to anything but that default.
Run a command prompt as admin, type in
sfc /scannow. If windows says you’re in the clear, good, if not you likely need a restart and that may clear up some issues.
Today I learned that SFC has been broken since July and was only fixed this Tuesday in a Windows update that also broke other things that have to do with Defender. May work now.
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth should help with any disk issues. Again, run in an admin command prompt.
Follow that if it says your pc is forked. I’m not gonna retype it you lazy lizard.
Feel free to post more fixes. Good luck!
