Borderlands 3 is out now, and it offers a vast play area over multiple planets - not just the huge waste of Pandora! Consequently, if you want to get around with any convenience, you'll probably be using fast travel a lot. Unfortunately, as of right now there are some problems with the service. If you get hit by the Borderlands 3 Fast Travel bug, what can you do?
There are a few potential bugs with Fast Travel, although Gearbox is already aware of at least one. The main Fast Travel bug actually involves the game's vehicles. Is there a fix for this? Let's have a look.
Is there a fix for the Borderlands 3 Fast Travel bug with vehicles?
The first issue involving Borderlands 3 Fast Travel occurs right at the start of the game, if you're not careful. As soon as you get access to Fast Travel, you'll get an ECHOcast from Lilith. Whatever you do, do not Fast Travel while the ECHOcast is going on! It'll break the event and you may have to restart. So, just wait until it's over. Easy fix.
There's also an issue regarding your Fast Travel points not carrying over in some multiplayer lobbies. Usually when this happens, it's because the lobby host hasn't unlocked those Fast Travel points. Also easy, if not a fix.
Less easy to fix is the Borderlands 3 Fast Travel bug involving the game's vehicles. Normally, while there are set Fast Travel points around the map, you should also be able to Fast Travel to your vehicle too. Sometimes, however, you simply can't - for no real reason, you just won't get the option on the map. It's deeply annoying.
There are a couple of possible fixes being passed around. The first is not selecting from the Fast Travel list on the map - find the vehicle and hold 'E' (or 'Use') on the vehicle itself. Alternatively, and this is the slightly weirder one - plug in a gamepad and use that to Fast Travel to the vehicle, and then unplug the pad again. This seems to be a PC controls-specific bug, so using a gamepad fixes it.
Hopefully Gearbox will patch in a more permanent solution, but for now give these fixes a go and see if they help!
