Borderlands 2 “Badass Rank” Bug

Players have found a bug in Borderlands 2 that wipes your Badass rank and resets your tokens to zero. The challenges you’ve completed, however, don’t reset — meaning you can’t re-earn your Badass rank. The bug allegedly affects the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game.

Gearbox commented:

“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.”

YouTube user RyogaWanderer made a video showing the bug in action:

Be careful out there in the borderlands.

All I know is, I’m going to be pretty mad if this happens to me. Hopefully, when Gearbox fixes it, they also find a way to recover those points. A fix that keeps it from happening in the future won’t do much good for those already affected.

this affected me today. reset my rank from 16000 to 26. Im so choked right now.
worst part is… my friend whos playing co op with me on the same game and console has not been affected by it.

i really hope they figure out a way to recover my ****** points — so disheartening i dont even feel like playing the game tonight.

I am SO SICK of this ING glitch! For over 2 WEEKS now I have waited for a patch to fix the GIANT hole that this bug left in my game..and so far? NOTHING. I for one, am DONE playing this e game until this is fixed and DEMAND compensation for the time I’ve lost. We should all demand something in return for our valuable time that has been shamelessly WASTED!
