Borderlands 2 Mechromancer DLC and patch resetting Badass rank, keys

StickSkills said, "We know everyone’s eagerly anticipating hopping online and downloading the new content for Borderlands 2, but reports of lost Badass ranks, skins, heads, golden keys, and even character saves are being reported." (Borderlands 2, Gearbox Software, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm not risking this as I haven't finished the game yet. Quite simply put Steam in offline mode.

i updated and didnt lose anything so i'm good.
Gamer1982  +   937d ago
Inly people really affected are those who have cheated in some ways. Those who managed to give themselves 255 keys day one now lose keys thanks to patch I'm hearing. But since they didnt get them through legitimate ways anyways they should stop complaining.

oh wow i would be super pised if i lost any of that! Im done with Borderlands 2 though, Resident Evil 6 is a bad game to follow it up. Kinda hoping dishonored gets the bad taste out of my mouth! Damn I love gamefly always a new game to play :)
Captain Qwark 9  +   937d ago
XCOM is following it up for me, well tech im going to play them both simultaneously but xcom getting a bit more time since ive finished bl2 already
kma2k  +   937d ago
I was undecided on dishonored or xcom so i just left them both in my game q with gamefly & let them send me one lol. Im sure ill get back to xcome in like december when the rush of new games stop.

Just downloaded the 263mb update. All is fine. My Badass Rank was never touched. Skill Tree, untouched, gear untouched.

Real quick, does backing up your character save your badass points or is it saved to your account server side?
admiralvic  +   937d ago
those are on your profile data.

I'm gonna wait till the coast is clear on this one. If I lose all my sh!t, I'm gonna be pissed.
MysticStrummer  +   937d ago
No problem here.
KillerPwned  +   937d ago
Steam had already downloaded the patch for me before I read this but I backed up my save. Oddly though the patch was corrupted so I guess redownload the patch then.
WildArmed  +   937d ago
>< phew. Thou luckily steam already has a cloud save backup :D
Megaton  +   937d ago
Downloaded on Steam, no problems. I do backup my saves, though. Just in case. This problem has been happening to people since launch.
KwietStorm  +   937d ago
I just lost my Badass rank and my Gold Keys yesterday, and it had nothing to do with a patch. They just up and disappeared. Thank God for backup save files.

Bumping the release forward a week seems to have worked out just great! /s
illVenomlli  +   937d ago
I have an Xbox 360. At 3am this morning i was playing and randomly an update for borderlands popped up. I didnt know what it was but it erased my players skins and heads and my badass tokens and rank is history! I am raging right now as we speak! I don't know how to fix this problem so i'm hoping someone can help me if there is a way to fix this problem. luckily it didnt touch my inventory full of legendary shit lol but if anyone has Xbox hit me up if you can help me. My gamertag is: illVenomlli
xJumpManx  +   937d ago
Yea that is what happened to me on MY PS3 when I downloaded it. I need a fix as well
Old McGroin  +   937d ago
@ illVenomlli and xJumpMan

I'd advise both of you to post on official Borderlands 2 forums with this problem. You will find no help here, only laughter...

I have downloaded (and installed) both the update and the Mechromancer on xbox 360 as of 7 pm eastern time, and I've had no issues whatsoever - everything is still as it should be (skins, weapons, Badass level, name it). Thanks for needlessly alarming me, stickless.com,
GTRrocker666  +   937d ago
A 200 mb patch? Fuck.
WildArmed  +   937d ago
The new character DLC I believe.
InTheLab  +   937d ago
Downloaded it this morning. The new class is outstanding. No gliches or loss of BA ranks. Cant wait to max out Deathtrap...
CrimsonessCross  +   937d ago
So addicted to playing the new class!

After playing through the game the first time on Maya I kind of know what i'm doing and just being able to clear areas with both myself and the skill is ridiculous at times! :P
Very fun though, can't wait to get my skills set up the way I allotted them on the spreadsheet!
GTRrocker666  +   937d ago
Do you have to start a game all over to play as the new class or can you just switch characters where you are in the game?
WildArmed  +   936d ago
You have to start the game all over again, thou you are free to jump into someone else's game and leech some exp.
Neko_Mega  +   937d ago
No problems at all, beside reskilling.
hadouken007  +   937d ago
Nothing was erased on my ps3 borderlands.
CrimsonessCross  +   937d ago
Some people have problems, some don't. I'm sorry for the ones who have had these things (possibly) set to zero.

I have no golden keys at the moment so i'm in the clear, I don't use bad-ass ranks at the moment so i'm not in much of a fuss if anything happens to them. The only thing I'm sure that would irritate me would be the clearing of progress or skins/heads and possibly (of course) weapons I may have found in a certain session (as to where it didn't save possibly)

Anyways, on topic. I own Borderlands 2 on the PC and I have had no issues with the download, ever since it was released by the first minute it was available to download.

As I said though, some people have problems, some won't. It's how most things work. I hope everyone gets their problems solved and cleared up! (regardless of platform)

Mecromancer Freaking rules!! oh ps3 FTW!
ziggurcat  +   936d ago
updated. nothing happened.

it looks like this is just a really rare bug.
TalonX1982  +   934d ago
PS3-I don't know what the hell is going on here. I lost all my skins too and I didn't even check the badass rank..if that's gone..I'm putting the game on my shelf next to broken Skyrim and really broken Dead Island and I will sit in the corner and cry. Also, When I go to farm the last boss, I've somehow lost my last SDU for my rockets, I only have 24 instead of 27...but when I go back to say, Sanctuary, I have the SDU again..what's up Gearbox?
