How to Enable Subtitles & Captions in Borderlands 3


GamingHow to Enable Subtitles & Captions in Borderlands 3

Borderlands 3 has a lot of dialogue. Whether you’re partaking in a quest, or just walking past some characters, there’s always dialogue that’s interesting and worth listening to. Sometimes it feels too quiet, especially with all the game sounds such as weapons and vehicles.

That’s why it’s definitely a good idea to turn on subtitles & closed captioning. They’re not distracting and help make sure you don’t miss out on any game lore/story. 

We’ve put together a very short guide for enabling subtitles in Borderlands 3. For more Borderlands 3 Guides & Best-of content for PS4, PC and Xbox One, make sure to check out our dedicated area here

Enabling Subtitles

Subtitles can be found in the Accessibility menu. To get there, open up the main menu by pressing START on a PS4/Xbox One Controller or ESC on PC. From there, choose ‘Options’ and then ‘Accessibility’.

Open the Accessibility menu

In here, you can control a lot of the games options when it comes to colors and audio. Scroll down towards the bottom, where you will see a sound section. There are two options available when it comes to subtitles. 

Enable subtitles

You can enable standard Subtitles, which is mostly for quest dialogue. Then you can also choose whether you also want to enable Closed Captions (CC), which is all voices in-game. The next two options allow you to change the size and opacity of the subtitles.
