I'm playing Borderlands: Game of the Year edition (not the enhanced version), and I'm wondering if there's a way to completely turn off the HUD, so I can get better screenshots.

There doesn't seem to be a keybind or setting in-game to turn off the HUD however. Is there a way to turn the HUD off at all?


On PC, yes it's possible to turn off the HUD.

You can open the settings file manually, and bind a key to the command togglehud, like so:

  1. In your Documents folder, open My Games/Borderlands/WillowGame/Config
  2. Right-click WillowInput.ini, and open it with notepad.
  3. There should be a section of settings that start with Bindings=. At the top of that list, add Bindings=(Name="F1",Command="togglehud"). Change F1 to whichever key you prefer.

Now, when you launch the game, you'll be able to press F1 to toggle the HUD on/off.

Toggling off the HUD will also disable the display of in-game menus (Inventory, Bounty Boards, New U Stations etc). Note that the menu will still be open. You'll need to hit Esc to back out of the menu and re-enable the HUD.
