Let’s face it: with more than a million guns to “pew pew” and worlds to explore outside of Pandora, most of us just want to play Borderlands 3. We don’t really want to sit through cutscenes. No, we want to skip them, especially the long cinematic at the beginning. Well, this Borderlands 3 guide tells you how to skip the intro and cutscenes … kind of.
While you might start with one Vault Hunter, you’ll certainly want to try all of them since each presents wildly different abilities and playstyles. Thing is, there’s the opening movie to sit through, then the one after you choose your VH.
While gorgeous and fun and raucous the first time ’round, watching it a second, third, or fourth time quickly becomes a slog, even if the theme song is a good one and the bar fight is pretty badass.

How to Skip the Intro and Splash Screens on PC
Of course, resourceful PC players have a solution for everything. Follow the steps below to get around the pesky opening cinematic:
- Go to your game files
- Look for Borderlands3/OakGames/Content/Movies
- Locate the file called Marcus_Intro
- Change the file name (it doesn’t matter what it’s changed to)
- However, do not delete the file
If you want to skip the splash screens, too, change the “LOGO” files found in the same folder. It won’t net you any trophies or achievements, but it will help you get into the game even faster.
