How to skip Borderlands 3’s Intro Videos and Spashs Screens – Reduce Initial Load Times

I don’t know about you, but when I start a game, I want to start a game. I don’t care about those developer/publisher splash screens, or which hardware manufacturer helped to work on the game. No, I want to play the game, and those screens get in the way of that. 

In Borderlands 3, it is easy to skip the 2K, Gearbox and AMD splash screens that are featured in every game bootup. All you need to do is this. Navigate into the Borderlands 3’s game files and either delete or rename the videos in question. Simple. That’s what this short article is all about. 

Finding Borderlands 3’s Folder

By Default, the Epic Games Store will download Borderlands 3 to the following directory. This directory will change depending on which storefront you purchase Borderlands 3 from, and depending on whether or not you have chosen to install the game elsewhere on your system.

Where are the Intro Video Files

Borderlands 3’s Splash Screen videos are available within the following folder. Enter into this folder and either delete or rename the following videos; 2KLOGO.mp4, AMDLOGO.mp4 and GBXLOGO.mp4.

Doing this will prevent these logos from appearing every time you boot Borderlands 3. Please note that game updates may restore these files, requiring players to delete or edit them again.
