Gearbox Issues Xbox Patch For Borderlands 2 Save Error

If you’ve been experiencing problems with your Xbox 360 Borderlands 2 saves, it’s apparently due to people doing nefarious things in violation of their XBL code of conduct agreement. Luckily, Gearbox has now issued a patch to fix it:

“Added security to prevent data loss tied to malicious violations of the Xbox Live Code of Conduct through an unsupported third-party program.”

Let us know if you’ve experienced the issue, and if so, if the patch fixed it.

I’m actually curious to know what these people were doing. Borderlands isn’t a competitive game so it’s not like they would ever need to have any sort of edge over others. I’m just wondering what the benefit was.

@ R.J — People who owned cracked 360′s were able to access a code left within Borderland 2′s code which enable a “Badass” difficulty. This was essentially a Diablo Apocalypse mode, in which defeat didn’t mean death of your character but complete deletion of the character upon death. No it isn’t a glitch, some games like Diablo actual have difficulty levels that delete your character if you die, this is known as “perma-death”. These hackers enabled badass mode and then went online, people who played with these hackers would automatically have their difficulty level moved to Badass mode without knowing it, then when they died their character was deleted. There was no way to know if a person you were playing with online was in badass mode until your character was deleted. I hope I explained it clearly enough, I’m really glade they fixed this, I missed playing Borderlands 2 online. Cheers.
