It’s no secret that the Borderlands games are better when played with friends, so you may be wondering if Borderlands 3 supports split-screen local co-op play.

The answer is both yes and no.

On PS4 and Xbox One, Borderlands 3 supports split-screen local co-op play for two players. Playing in co-op should prove to be better then ever, too, as enemies and loot are now scaled for each player. No more joining up with a friend only to find that you can’t use any loot or kill any enemies because they’re too high level.


Unfortunately, split-screen local co-op play is not possible in the PC version of Borderlands 3. If you’re playing on PC, the only option you have for playing in co-op is online. But hey, at least you’ll be able to have more friends in on the act. When playing online, Borderlands 3 supports up to four players working together. And there’s no more stealing loot, either. Well, unless you want to share the loot that you earn.
