Even with the large day one update for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (8.3GB on PS4, 16GB on Xbox One), people have reported numerous issues with the bundle, including frame-rate drops in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Gearbox went on their forums to address this issue:

Just wanted to pop in and ease everyone’s minds a bit. The team is certainly aware of both the screen tear and fps lag issues and are currently investigating them. Needless to say, things are quite busy and we appreciate everyone’s continued patience!

You can check out the Knowledge Base for a list of known issues in The Handsome Collection, with a few PlayStation 4 problems highlighted below:

  • We are aware of a rare issue where the game may crash after the first combat with the Bullymongs in Windshear Wastes while in 4-player split-screen. Our engineers are aware of this issue and are investigating possible resolutions to be included in a future update. In the meantime, you may avoid this issue by starting split-screen from the following checkpoint.
  • We’re aware of an issue where the game may crash when a user repeatedly attempts to join a game via matchmaking while having an unstable internet connection. Our engineers are currently investigating possible resolutions to be included in a future update.
  • We’re aware of an issue where the game may crash for a client when attempting to join a game where the host is in the map “The Mines of Avarice”. Our engineers are currently investigating possible resolutions to be included in a future update.

Also, Gearbox handed out some codes to unlock a bunch of Golden Keys, but be quick as they expire on March 31:
