Fix Borderlands 3 Network Error Feature Requires All Active Players
First of all, make sure that the internet connection is working properly. Then check whether there is any pending update available for the Windows or your graphics drivers. Once done, you will need to take a backup file of your saved game data at first (if any). Otherwise, all of your saved game files will be deleted completely.
- Configure the Borderlands 3 game to use Proton 5.0-4.
- Run the mf-install and mf-installcab scripts.
- Now, go to the web browser and create a SHiFT account.
- Then login Steam account and connect/link with SHiFT.
- Next, run the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launcher using the Proton 5.0-4. It will also prompt you to connect with the SHiFT account. (You’ve already done this)
- Once the SHiFT account is linked, close the Pre-Sequel launcher.
- Finally, launch the Borderlands 3 game and you will be able to connect online without any network error.
