Borderlands GOTY Enhanced – Lag, Rubberbanding And Desync In Multiplayer Or Coop – How To Fix

There is no doubt that Borderlands is an iconic gaming title. This was the game that put the name of Gearbox on the list of top game developers. And when Gearbox announced in their latest event that they are launching a remastered version of the original Borderlands game, every single Borderlands fan got excited.

Borderlands GOTY (Game Of The Year) Enhanced is a remake of the original Borderlands game with extra textures and details. You can call it a HD version of the original game. As soon as you start the game you would be able to feel that a lot of changes have been made. From textures on all the enemies to ground textures, everything has been reworked.

But all these enhancements couldn’t stop Borderlands GOTY Enhanced from having few bugs and glitches. Though the bugs are not game breaking, a bug is a bug, and all bugs are annoying. The recent bug is causing various connection problems for players who are trying to play this game with their friends. Which means this bug is surfacing during coop and multiplayer only.

We played Borderlands GOTY Enhanced for more than three hours at a stretch and we didn’t face any issues but as soon as we invited someone we started facing rubberbanding quite often. So we started looking for a fix and eventually came across a post by a Steam community user called Jay \v\. We went to try his fix and it actually worked. So we thought of sharing this fix with everyone. Here is how to fix connection issues like lag, rubberbanding and desync during co-op or multiplayer in Borderlands GOTY Enhanced:
