Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel – New Mod Unlocks Third-Person Viewpoint

Here is another reason why most – if not all – PC games should be friendlier to mods. YouTube’s member ‘TFXLive’ has just released a mod for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel that enables a third-person viewpoint, making the whole experience much more ‘enjoyable’ for all those who want to appreciate their in-game characters.

TFXLive was also responsible for a third-person mod for Borderlands 2, however this brand new mod for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is miles better than that.

This third-person mod works on all versions of Borderland: The Pre-Sequel, and comes with improved iron sight and scoping from third-person to first-person mode (compared to its Borderlands 2 cousin). It’s also standalone, meaning you won’t need any third party tools to run it.

Here is a guide that TFXLive provided via which you can enable this third-person viewpoint:

1. Go to this link to download the mod.
2. Click skip ad in the top right corner.
3. Scroll down a little and choose your download method then initiate download for

8. Go back into Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
