The Borderlands® 3 GamePack features every major FPS Mod in the toolbox, including an exclusive new Dynamic Rapid Fire System that changes speed depending on how hard you pull the trigger. Aim Assist and Anti-Recoil are of course included, both capable of tuning their settings in real-time while playing the game. Other essential options include Rapid Fire, Burst Fire, Drop Shot, Strafe Shot, Bunny Hop, Auto Sprint, and Hair Triggers. All default button layouts are supported, including Default, Lefty/Southpaw, Angelic, Nuked/Wiped Out, and Resistant.

There are two methods to setup and configure Mods in this GamePack, the first being the GamePack Configuration Interface (or GCI) and the second is the Zen OLED Menu System.

The GCI either pops up every time you program a GamePack to a memory slot or when you click on the memory slot number in Zen Studio. This is a really quick way to setup all your preferred defaults from the get-go.

The Zen OLED Menu System is a new groundbreaking feature that allows the configuration and tuning of dozens of different Mod modes and combinations, on-the-fly and in seconds, all from an easy to read OLED interface. Once you have programmed this GamePack to a memory slot it must be enabled and active. This is done by pressing the Memory Slot Button (P1) until the logo of the GamePack you wish to use appears on the OLED screen.

When you see the logo of this GamePack displayed on the screen, simply hold LT/L2 & press MENU/OPTIONS to access the Mod Menu System.

All Adjustable Mods can be tuned and tested in real-time directly from the Zen GamePack OLED Adjustables Menu.

The Zen OLED Menu System has built in screensaver protection to help protect against screen burn. It will kick in after 3 minutes of inactivity. Press any button to return to the Mod Menu screen.

Quick Toggles allow you to access the OLED Menu System and instantly enable/disable active Mods while gaming. This gives an incredible advantage in certain situations, for example if you are using a weapon that requires Anti-Recoil to be disabled quickly, or if you are using a fully automatic weapon and need to disable Rapid Fire, simply tap the Quick Toggle designated to the Active Fire Mod.

Note: When a Mod is disabled, any associated Quick Toggle is also disabled.

All default Borderlands 3 button layout options are available in this GamePack. Use the GamePack Configuration Interface (GCI) in Zen Studio or Cronus Zen's OLED Screen to access the OLED GamePack Menu to select the layout you are using in-game.

This will automatically adjust and remap all Mods to your preferred choice.

This step is critical. If you don't select the same Button Layout Preset that you are using in-game, several Mods in this GamePack will not function correctly.

  1. Press the MENU/OPTION button on your controller

  2. Select CONTROLS

  3. Tap RB/R1 Two Times

  4. Select a BUTTON SCHEME

This category has a selection of powerful Rapid Fire type Mods, including Adjustable Rapid Fire, Dynamic Rapid Fire and Burst Fire.

Rapid Fire is designed for semi-automatic and single shot weapons. The feature makes them shoot as fully automatics and gives the players a greater firing power compared to the one achieved through manual trigger pulling.

In simple terms, the Mod pulls the Fire Trigger on your behalf. When you hold down RT/R2, the mod keeps pressing fire in the background over and over again until you release it. It also lets you focus on aiming better by taking away the need to constantly press fire.

There are a few things worth noting:

  • Every game and gun has a capped fire-rate preset by the game developer. The mod can optimize to it's maximum speed and also help with tricks such as cool down and weapon swap speed, but the actual fire speed can never go above the preset capped rate.

  • The Rapid Fire mod is not effective for single shot weapons that have a very slow firing rate such as Bolt Action Rifles.

  • Cronus Mod Technology offers a tactical Quick Toggle feature. It allows the player to quickly disable or enable the Active Fire Mod depending on the gaming circ*mstances - for example when your character is carrying both semi and fully-automatic weapons at the same time. While changing between primary and secondary classes, Rapid Fire can be quickly turned ON or OFF by holding LT/L2 + D-PAD UP.

Pro Tip: Pistols and Semi-Automatics work best with Rapid Fire.

While Rapid Fire will not usually make a fully-automatic gun shoot any faster, it can have positive side effects on full-auto guns, such as reducing recoil thus increasing accuracy at a long range and helping players conserve ammunition and achieve more headshots.

Control exactly when a Mod is activated. This is particularly useful if you have one Mod that activates only when you Press Fire and another Mod that activates only when you press ADS & Fire.

Recoil is when your weapon moves on its own while firing. Anti-Recoil reduces this erratic movement making your shots more accurate and more likely to hit your target. For example, without Anti-Recoil your weapon may pull up when you fire and with Anti-Recoil your weapon will stay on target and fire straight.

Each weapon in each game has a unique recoil pattern and when adjusted correctly Anti-Recoil simply combats the vertical (and sometimes horizontal) aspect of this. When the game causes the weapon to pull up, Anti-Recoil will pull the weapon down enough to level out your shot.

Pro Tip: When you use a high sensitivity the value can be higher than the default value. When you use a low sensitivity the value can be lower than the default value.

Anti-Recoil strength can be adjusted from 1 to 100 in real-time by using the Zen OLED GamePack Adjustable Menu. A higher value means a stronger recoil compensation, a lower value means less recoil compensation. This allows you to quickly tune your weapon directly from your controller while playing the game, without having to unplugging and connecting your Zen to a PC.

If you are using the Inverted-Y Axis version of this Mod, it will also need to be enabled in-game.

  1. Press the MENU/OPTION button on your controller

  2. Select CONTROLS

  3. Select a VERTICAL LOOK

Select which Shot Mod is active during gameplay. These Mods make you a harder target while confusing the enemy in the process.

This will allow you to choose which direction you want to use for your Active Shot Mod (Strafe Shot).

Control exactly when a Mod is activated. This is particularly useful if you have one Mod that activates only when you Press Fire and another Mod that activates only when you press ADS & Fire.

This allows you to be able to do bunny hops. Which comes in handy when you want to confuse the enemy and making you harder to be targeted.

Simply hold down the In-Game Jump Button to preform the Bunny Hop

If you are tired of constantly pressing the left analog stick to make your character sprint, Auto Sprint is just what you have been looking for. As soon as you push the left stick forward, your character will automatically run as if the stick was pushed all the way forward and pressed fully down.

When Auto Sprint is Enabled you will be able to slide whenever you want, it will automatically hop up when a slide is preformed, so you don't have to worry getting stuck in the crouch position while using this mod.

Borderlands 3 applies a "dead-zone" to the trigger buttons, which means the trigger (either shooting or ADS) needs to be pressed almost half way down before they are registered by the game. With this Hair Trigger Mod you can ensure your weapon will fire or ADS at the slightest amount of pressure.

This option blocks all rumble signals sent from the game, but still allows the GamePack to read in-game rumble frequencies (used by several mods to measure timing).

So, if you have this Mod disabled your controller will vibrate while shooting, and if this Mod is enabled your controller will not vibrate while your shooting.

In-Game rumble/vibration must still be enabled.

  1. Press the MENU/OPTIONS button on your controller

  2. Select CONTROLS

  3. Select a VIBRATION

When this GamePack is being used on a PlayStation 5 or 4 and detects the connected controller is not a DualSense or DualShock 4, it will automatically reassign Touchpad to the Select/Back/View/Minus Button of your crossover controller so you are still able to utilize the Touchpad functionality on a PlayStation while using a Crossover controller. You can also access the PS5/PS4 Share Screen by pressing Select/Back/View/Minus + RS (Right Stick).

Troubleshooting Tip If you are experiencing unstable performance or settings issues with your GamePack, it's likely that the configuration profile has become corrupted. This can sometimes happen when updating to a newer GamePack version with major structural changes or using a memory slot that already had a pack previously programmed to it.
