Borderlands 3 is finally upon us, bringing plenty of that looter shooter action, thousands of guns, and all the toilet humor you could ever ask for into one handy package. Here’s everything you need to know on how to redeem preorder DLC in Borderlands 3, as well as any bonus content from the Deluxe or Super Deluxe editions, or other.
Redeeming Borderlands 3 Preorder DLC
First off, you’ll need to make sure that you’re redeeming any preorder DLC codes, or any other codes that came on a slip within your Deluxe or Super Deluxe Edition of Borderlands 3.
This can be done by heading to your platform of choice’s digital storefront and using the ‘Redeem Code’ option on the left sidebar on PS4, the ‘Use a Code’ option on Xbox One, or the ‘Redeem Code’ option under your account name on the Epic Games Store.
Enter the code and confirm the content you want to redeem. It’s worth noting here that any digital downloads of Borderlands 3 will automatically download your preorder or bonus DLC with the full game, so you don’t have to worry about searching for anything else to download on the storefront.
How to Get Your Borderlands 3 Preorder DLC Items in the Game
Now that you’ve redeemed the codes, you now have to go and find them in the game. Fortunately, it’s incredibly easy to find them if you know where you’re going.
Basically, you want to use the ‘Social’ option from the main menu, or by pressing the Options button on PS4, Menu on Xbox One, or Esc on PC.
This should open the ‘Roster’ of your friends. Ignore this and shift over to the envelope icon at the top. Clicking on this will open your ‘Mail,’ which is where you’ll find all of your preorder DLC or bonus items. Click ‘Accept’ for each one by pressing E on PC, A on Xbox One, or X on PS4.
You should now have all of your DLC items in your inventory, ready to equip on the fly whenever you want.
I Have No Mail, Where Are My Items?
If you find that you’ve got no mail in Borderlands 3 and you’re playing on Xbox One, you’ll want to exit out of the game and then go to ‘My Games and Apps.’ Select the game and choose the ‘Manage Game Add-Ons’ option.
Now make sure each and every bit of DLC has been downloaded, as some players have found this isn’t downloading automatically on Xbox One.
PS4 players who face a similar issues should turn their console off and on and reload the game. Players have reported this has fixed the problem of missing preorder DLC and bonus items in Borderlands 3.
