Borderlands 2 Bug Discovered
A post on Joystiq from yesterday reports that a small percentage of Borderlands 2 players have encountered a pretty nasty bug over the last few days: players’ Badass Ranks and lots of other in-game progress is mysteriously and randomly wiped. Worse, the completed challenges needed to unlock those acquisitions in the first place aren’t reset when the bug takes effect, meaning that the lost goodies stay lost.
Gearbox Community Manager Chris Faylor responded to the 300 or so responses a thread about the bug had garnered on the developer’s forums:
“Thanks for all the reports and specific details, folks. Our engineers are looking into this, and the information you’ve provided has proven to be a great resource while we investigate. At the moment, it seems to be a fairly rare issue and we’ll keep you updated on when we resolve it.”
By way of a temporary solution while Gearbox investigates, one forum-poster advised a quick system reset—simply shutting off the console as soon as the bug seems to have taken effect. Because it doesn’t save, it’s possible the game might go back to where it was before the bug had struck.
Anyone out there experienced this bug while shooting up monsters and other jerks in Pandora?
